ACTRESS DEE WALLACE – CURRENT PROJECTS
The illustrious actress has just been nominated “Best Guest Performer” for her role as Patricia Spencer on “General Hospital” and she will attend “ The Daytime Emmy Awards” on May 1, 2016. Dee states, “I am surprised, honored and grateful that my work on ‘General Hospital’ has been acknowledged this way. It is an exciting time for me! I played Patricia Spencer, Luke’s sister, a character that had been discussed since the beginning of the show! ”
Dee currently costars on the Amazon Prime TV series “Just Add Magic,” has two feature films, “Ayla” (supernatural love thriller) and “Death House” (a unique horror genre film with social commentary) completed and recently guest-starred on “The Supernatural.”
Dee is most excited about the remarkable plush toy, Buppa LaPaloo that she recently created to promote self-esteem and self-love for children.
Combining her love of teaching and empowering people Dee Wallace has created a unique first-of-its-kind best friend for children. Buppa LaPaloo. This is an adorable teddy bear that interacts with children of all ages to teach them strong and fun statements that help them know how special they really are. This is a remarkable, cuddly toy that teaches self-love and self-esteem. Parents will love this bear as it helps them participate and help their children expand on the experience of being awesome!
Psychologists agree that a child’s personality and basic life pattern is firmly embedded by the ages of 4-7. The core of bulimia, anorexia, bullying, poor grades, anger, etc. is due in part to a lack of self-love, importance and self-esteem while growing up. Early childhood self-love is vitally important to how children will see, be and interact in their world. The Buppa LaPaloo Bear helps kids learn how to own their power.
When you press the adorable Buppa LaPaloo Bear's right paw, one of 14 positive empowering messages is delivered that a child can repeat back. Some of the statements include: “I love me.” “I love to laugh.” “I love to smile.” “I love to dance.” The simple exercise of repeating these messages creates strong self-definitions and builds a child’s self-esteem and self-love.
When you press the Buppa LaPaloo Bear's left paw a parent or child can record a personal empowering, happy message. Buppa LaPaloo is a wonderful gift for anyone who loves holding a plush teddy bear and hearing great messages each day. It brings a smile to your face no matter what age!
Dee Wallace has combined her high school teaching degree and eclectic illustrious career to create a unique toy that can make a difference in a child’s life. Dee’s lifelong work is based on the principles of accepting responsibility and loving ourselves early in life so we can create the life we desire.
