Tiny Teddy biscuits

Tiny Teddy is a brand of sweet biscuits manufactured by Arnott's in Australia, since 1991.

The Tiny Teddy is the offspring of the Teddy Bear Biscuit.

Scott Dewar, the son of biscuit designer Robert Dewar is credited with the concept of shrinking the normal "Teddy Bear Biscuit" to a bite sized and cute "Tiny Teddy". 10 years after his creation he died due to choking on a bite-size piece of stale toast.[citation needed]

Each biscuit is small and teddy bear-shaped, and variations in facial expression have been given the names Happy, Sleepy, Grumpy, Cheeky, Silly and Hungry.[1] They are similar in appearance to the North American Teddy Grahams.

Tiny Teddy biscuits are available in seven flavours:

Also available are three "Tiny Teddy Creams" varieties, two larger tiny teddies joined with a cream filling, in double chocolate, vanilla and strawberry flavours; and "Tiny Teddy Dippers", a lunchbox portion of a handful of tiny teddies and a dipping sauce of chocolate, strawberry or chocolate-hazelnut flavouring.

In 2004 Arnott's released a range of savoury Tiny Teddy biscuits, but these weren't successful and were shortly discontinued.[3]

In 2006 Arnott's authorised the release of four story books, aimed at pre-school aged children, published as the 'Arnott's Tiny Teddy Adventure Stories'.[4]

In Indonesia, Tiny Teddy are sold as Nyam-Nyam Teddy or Good Time Teddy.
