Here’s Trouble! In January, 2006, after some tough times of her own, then twelve year old Kendra Duncan of Marblehead, Massachusetts, decided that kids could use some help during difficult times … maybe they were being bullied … had lost their home … someone was ill … or they were simply feeling a little bit afraid. They needed a great big hug … and more!
She sat down and drew a very simple little pup, and named him Trouble! She then worked with her aunt, Sheila, to design a cuddly plush toy as well as a children’s book which tells Trouble’s story of rescue and hope…and how to “be tough” when times are hard.
Trouble has a mission … to help kids, grown ups (and dogs) in need … and he does! It’s magical! Sheila Duncan went from running a world famous bar/restaurant in Marblehead, MA, to founder and co-creator along with her niece, of Trouble, a children’s stuffed animal brand. This character, Trouble the Dog brings HOPE to children all over the world.
