Bean Bear Creations was created by Allison Kaufman in 2004.  The business focused on hand painted personalized wood products for children.

In 2008, Allison opened a successful Etsy shop that focused on personalized vinyl products.

By 2023, the Etsy shop ran its course and Allison closed the shop so that she can focus her time on teaching, her family and on her other business Sparkle Art Studio.
