correlating with each character.

Meet the Characters


Our Founder

Characters of Character began when Joni, the creator and CEO, was working in a BD/LD classroom of young boys.  These boys had serious behavioral issues and were unable to relate to traits like being polite.  Joni created the nine Characters, Behavior Bear, Do’er Duck, Friendship Frog, Healthy Hippo, Manners Monkey, Respectful Rabbit, Responsible Rabbit, Self-Esteem Elephant, and Warm-Hearted Walrus, as a way for her students to understand, and internalize, the traits that correspond with each Character.
