Emile Thiennot used to work for Marcel Pintel but set up his own toy manufacturing company in 1919 out of Piney selling bears and other stuffed animals under the name Le Jouet Champenois. In 1920 he won a medal for one of his teddy bears at a competition in France. In 1957 the firm changed its name to Creation Tieno and closed down in January 1993. Emile Thiennot made teddy bears mainly of synthetic plush and were designed for young babies and also made replicas of early designs.
