Marcella’s motivation for the creation of Teddy Magic
The Magical Teddies concept is a commitment to, and love for children, and a desire to make a positive contribution to their lives.
Children need more than ever to feel valued, confident and loved.
The CHARACTERS, STORIES, SONGS and THEMES in Teddy Magic- the Magical Rainbow Teddies have been created specifically to enhance children’s awareness of their unique loveliness and value, enhance feelings of self-worth and resilience and instil a sense of make-believe, magic and wonder in children’s lives.
For over 14 years Marcella has been running a programme of Creative Expression Activities for primary and preschool children offering stories, songs, movement to music, imaginative play and drama.
Magical Teddies concerts and presentations have been held at Child Care Centers, Preschools, Schools, Libraries, Community Centers and Theatres in Australia and overseas - Hong Kong, Singapore, South Africa.
Educationally, Marcella completed a Bachelor of Arts Degree majoring in Psychology which she found very trying , and Literature for which she has always had a passion at Swinburne University in Melbourne in 1991).
She has also done courses in Play Therapy and Therapeutic Story Telling, which she loved and found quite illuminating!
