Hello everyone, Smartuft has been created to remind every child and adult alike that there is an “I Am” in each one of us. We have been wonderfully and uniquely made with special characteristics, given special gifts, and created with specific traits, talents, skills, and a purpose by our Creator. Recognition, development and utilization of your attributes to become someone who cares and helps others is Smartuft’s aspiration.
Smartuft has been created as a special Great Horned Owl. Great Horned Owls are known for having great vision, great hearing, strong talons, possibly color blindness, to fly very swiftly, and appear to have a solemn and lonesome personality, and yes, they have ear-tufts not horns.
Because he is special, he does not appear like a real Great Horned Owl. Let me tell you HOO he is. He is a fictitious owl character, which appears to be color blind as his clothes reflect some of the spectrum’s bold colors. He wears glasses to remind boys, girls, and even adults that sometimes we need help to have great vision; besides, glasses make him look cuter, smarter and very confident.
As far as we know, his great hearing has nothing to do with his tufts. Ear-tufts are clump of feathers that look like ears or horns and have no definitive purpose, but for him, one of his tufts helps him hold his favorite pencil so that he can be ready to jot down his findings during his explorations. As any Great Horned Owl, he has strong talons and flies very swiftly throughout the world exploring and discovering. You could say that he is an Explorer and a Discoverer.
He appears to be a jolly, positive, confident, and a sociable little bird; this is because he is happy that he was created with his own special characteristics and attributes. If Smartuft could talk, he would say: “I love who I AM, but most importantly, I love the purpose for what I have been created. I have been created to remind children and adults alike that by recognizing, developing, and utilizing our character, characteristics, gifts, talents, traits, and skills; we can become someone that cares and helps others.”
