About Mini Ben

Mini Ben was born April 30th 2013, on board an airplane headed to adventures in Mexico.

Friends of Ben Kohler headed for a vacation in Mexico wanted to include Ben in the adventure. Tracey Anderson having a background in scapbooking made a gingerbread man type paper body and pasted a picture of Ben Kohler’s face to the doll. While in Mexico Tracey and her family Kim Kellis and Jayme Kissee posed for pictures during their activities and posted to Ben’s facebook page. They changed his clothes depending on what adventure they were taking.

Before they returned from Mexico, Velvet Scheidler, one of Ben’s friends, requested Mini Ben to visit her in Florida. Soon the adventure took off and Mini Ben has appeared all over the world in thousands of pictures¬† with people from all walks or life doing all kinds of things and having fun.

“This is about bringing people together from all walks of life, that’s the type of person I am and what Mini Ben will represent” -Ben Kohler
