Olivia Carlson, 22, of New Hartford, says the "Quarantine Bear" comes with a mask and a matching mask for the child.
It also has a handwritten note and a list of tips to stay healthy.
Carlson says she hopes the bear will bring kids comfort during these uncertain times.
"I started with six bears, that's all I had in my possession. Posted it on Facebook and I had no idea how much shares it would get," Carlson said. "I hope these Quarantine Bears can help a little bit."
Carlson says she picked a bear because she got Build-a-Bears with her dad, right before he passed away from pancreatic cancer more than a year ago.
