Guide Review - Teddy Ruxpin, Animated Storytelling Bear
Soft and lovable, Teddy Ruxpin comes to life when you insert the program cartridge that is specially designed to accommodate small hands. Each program cartridge contains complete stories, music, sound effects and the customized data necessary to animate Teddy. Each adventure or music package allows kids to enjoy Teddy Ruxpin. Controls at the back of Teddy allow you to adjust the volume.
Younger children can follow along Teddys Adventures in the full-color picture books. Older children can follow along by using the story-song books. This is a great way to encourage reading!
Teddy is a bit overpriced at $69.99 but the cost factor is counter-balanced by the soft, loveable bear with easy-to-use cartridges and well-timed animations. The program cartridge is simple to use requiring virtually no adult supervision. This is one of the biggest plus points of the animated Teddy Ruxpin bear.
The Teddy Ruxpin bear is a lovely product, and comes highly recommended to all you parents and grandparents out there.
