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.
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. They are similar in appearance to the North American Teddy Grahams.
Tiny Teddy biscuits are available in seven flavours:
- chocolate chip
- chocolate half coat
- cookies and cream
- 100s and 1000s (released 2010)
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.
In Indonesia, Tiny Teddy are sold as Nyam-Nyam Teddy or Good Time Teddy.
