My Friend Freddy Bear
MY FRIEND FREDDY BEAR
My Friend Freddy Bear is a cuddly smart talking bear – the kids we tested him with loved him and wouldn’t put him down!
When you first get Freddy Bear you need to add 3 x AA (LR6) batteries. Then you need to download the App from your App store. We downloaded the App from the Apple store & found it quick to download and very easy to use. Once you’ve done this you need to key in answers to a lot of questions about your child – the name, their best friend, favourite colour and so on. This enables Freddy to appear to know your child very well.
All of which sounds ok but not that exciting from an adult’s perspective, however, the effect on the children we tested with when Freddy started talking to them about them and the things they liked could be best summed up in one word: RAPTURE! Freddy genuinely had them spellbound for a while, and almost immediately they were carrying him round and refusing to put him down or leave him anywhere.
The App combined with Freddy features a range of fun games/activities and seven audio stories to listen to.
Although it’s almost an incidental with a soft toy where technology is the main attraction/feature, My Friend Freddy Bear is also a very nice plush toy. He’s cuddly, cutesy looking and very robust.
We have to be frank and say that to an adult Freddy’s voice is a little peculiar (sounds a little robotic and like an adult), this was not even remotely an issue for the kids we tested with who loved Freddy regardless.
WHO’S IT FOR: Kids over the age of 2.
THE TOY VERDICT: My Friend Freddy Bear is a clever, cuddly bear featuring cool technology to really bring Freddy to life. Recommended.
