My Friend Teddy, interactive bear review & giveaway


My Friend Teddy is the bear that really knows you! Teddy is a cuddly, huggable bear that talks, laughs and is designed equally as a personalized plush toy companion and a development tool for preschoolers. Teddy fosters caring, sharing and learning through his personalization feature. Parents bring Teddy to life by downloading the free app to an iOS or Android smart device and customizing child specific information, such as favorite characters, foods, toys, family names and birthdays. Teddy will incorporate these factoids into his engaging and interactive storytelling. Your child will be amazed!

We recently received a My Friend Teddy to review.


He is super cute right out of the box. Cuddly, colorful, and really soft. Downloading the app (compatible with iOS and Android smart devices) to our tablet was quick. Connecting, via Bluetooth was quick, but setting him up with all of Becca’s info took some time. We didn’t mind, the more answers we give him, the more he knows about Becca while playing. Once we were finished, he was good to go.



The app is child safe, and really easy to use. Becca has no problems using it without me. Becca really enjoys playing games with Teddy. Each game has a three level setting, one being easiest, and three being the most advanced. Making them appeal to a wider age group.



Becca also enjoys reading along and listening to Teddy tell stories. She smiles every-time she hears her own information integrated into the story. Yes, his mouth actually moves while he’s talking. It’s adorable. Teddy’s voice is also nice and clear, making him easy to understand.


Just as I suspected, Becca loves My Friend Teddy even without being connected to the app. He’s become a fast favorite, and she takes him everywhere.


Teddy being an interactive bear who cares, shares and really knows your child. An interactive bear who cares, shares and really knows your child. Customized with favorite foods and interests, and family names and birthdays that are integrated into Teddy’s engaging storytelling, game play and educational development tools. My Friend Teddy was recently featured at a charity event with Mario Lopez(Extra).
