The Prince Lionheart bear is a soft, cuddly bear that is supposed to lull your baby to sleep. It plays original recorded womb sounds which calm and soothe fussy babies. Interesting, isn't it! Judging from the bear's popularity, I assume it works.

Play Along Hide 'N Seek Care Bear - Surprise Bear
Play Along
I loved this adorable Care Bear aptly titled Surprise Bear. This special bear loves to play Hide an Seek. There's a little remote called the Care Bear Finder which helps your child to find the Surprise Bear's hiding place. The Surprise Bear gives clues as to whether you are going the right way or wrong way and guides your child to where she is hiding. Her tummy symbol is a smiling star springing out of a jack-in-the-box.

The Doodle Bears line of bears from Play Along are all based on the same principle - they can be painted/colored with special markers which wash off once the toys are laundered.
