Binky_Reading_Wisley_6764

Binky had a day out at the Royal Horticultural Society – Wisley…

Moira and Binky helped the RHS at Wisley kick off their summer season of brilliant activities for children with a visit on Saturday.  Check out the RHS website for details of events every day during the summer holidays.  Look out for their Great Garden Quest. Binky will be there again on Saturday August 16th.  Come along and shake his paw and hear Liz read Binky Goes To London. You will be able to buy your own copy and ask Liz to sign and dedicate it for you.  
4th July

Happy 4th July to our friends in the US!

Did you know that just over 10% of the visitors to this website are from the US, as are several of our most enthusiastic Facebook fans.   Lots of Binky Books and bears have been bought in Great Britain, as souvenirs of holidays here and given to friends and family back home. It is really exciting to think that the adventures of our very British Binky Bear are being read at bedtimes all over the US. So in the spirit of doing something nice for your friends, Binky himself roped in two Little Binky Bears to pose for Moira's camera with their very own Stars and Stripes.  So Happy 4th July Holidays to you all on the other side of the big pond!

#Throwback Thursday

Some of you may be familiar with the hashtag #ThrowbackThursday and we are starting to use it on Facebook to go back and talk about how we started with Binky Bear. When we first had the idea of creating a children's photographic picture book we knew that our book, Binky's Big Adventure would be location specific and would have a map so you could enjoy Binky's adventure in Alresford yourself.  What we needed first though was a Teddy Bear.  We both have old bears but they are just too fragile so we went on the hunt to local charity shops for bears with different looks which we could use for test shots.  Here is one of our first applicants for the job of Binky Bear and Moira managed to hitch him up on the sign for Alresford Station (The Watercress Line).
