In taken 2 there is a scene where they capture and torture Jean-Claude for information on Liam Neeson's whereabouts.

At first he refuses and says he will never tell until they bring out a teddy bear. What was so important to him about the teddy bear that made him give up the location?

I believe the intention was to tell him that if he didn't cooperate his kid (or kids? I can't remember) would pay for his insubordination.

The teddy bear symbolized his children (children's teddy bear). The Albanians would harm his family (wife and kids) if he did not give up the information.
