Welcome to the World of Button & Squeaky!

“My goal was to create something interactive and personal, a way to tell people what I was seeing and thinking and to get some feedback through a series of posts. Sort of an ongoing conversation we can have through my art.” The response to this good-hearted teddy bear and his balloon dog friend has been immediate and somewhat overwhelming, with positive reaction from both devoted Jim Shore followers and people new to his work. So come along, join Jim and his friends for a fun filled adventure of life, love and humor. And whenever you can let him know what you think!

The Button and Squeaky story is based on Jim Shore’s unique, sometimes unexpected insights and observations on life and relationships. The lovable characters and the situations they face are deceptively complex, covering a wide range of topics from heartwarming to enlightening to just plain silly. But no matter what, the underlying message is always the same… expressing a love and care for others that’s heartfelt and sincere. It’s an ongoing story of kindness and humor, striking a simple chord of hope that resonates in today’s complicated world.

Button

Button

Humorous and engaging, Button the Teddy Bear embodies the values Jim Shore expresses in his art… love of family, friends, God and country. Button wears his heart on his sleeve, or is it on his chest! He’s adventurous and fun loving, always up for new experience. He’s curious about the world around him and wise in the gifts he’s been given. Like most of us Button can be a curmudgeon at times, but his sincerity and good humor always win out.

Squeaky

Squeaky

Button’s pet Balloon Dog Squeaky is into everything, he loves to explore life and all its possibilities. He’s courageous and fun loving, willing to take a dare, he’ll face anything with his friend Button. But he’s deceptively wise, and seemingly always in the right place at the right time. Squeaky fears nothing...except sharp objects and open flames.

Pinky

Pinky

Button’s girlfriend Pinky is supportive and playful, always ready to have fun with her friends. Loving and kind, she’s also independent, a mind of her own that reacts differently to situations. Mature and stable, she’s a little less impetuous than Button and his balloon dog pal. But she’s loyal, and always ready to provide emotional support when things gets hard. She is wise about matters of the heart and has a sense of humor... mostly at the expense of Button and Squeaky.
