I get all giddy over toys that actually serve as an extra learning device opposed to being JUST ANOTHER TOY to be tossed in the toybox.

The Smart-e-Bear is a great interactive, yet STUFFED animal that sings songs, reads stories, and plays games with your child. Unlike a lot of other "interactive" toys, Smart-e-Bear is ready to go as soon as you take him out of the box. (Believe me, having to install a cd and download tons of material just to get a toy to work is NOT FUN!) So, I was pleasantly surprised not to have to do any of this right away. However, once you are ready for NEW material such as songs and stories you can hook Smart-e-Bear up to the computer and download whenever you would like.

I would say this is best suited for ages 3-7. My 4 year old daughter really enjoyed the story time and games (Simon Says). It's very easy for little ones to interact with the toy. Smart-e-Bear will ask a question such and prompt the child to push his hand or foot (as the reply).

Smart-e-Bear grows with your child.

As your child’s interests change, you can change smart-e-bear so he and your child grow together and not apart. Smart-e-bear keeps pace with your child’s development with interactive behaviors ranging from a simple shuffle playback to more engaging and complex interactions.

So, if you are like me and want a little more out of your toys then I highly suggest the Smart-e-Bear. Kids will enjoy being able to interact with the toy and play fun games. Parents will love the fact that not only is it keeping the kids busy but it also doubles as a learning tool.

Smart-e-Bear retails for $79.99 and can be purchased at retailers such as, Kohl's, Costco, and FAO Schwartz.
