The ‘80s are back. At least, when it comes to toys they are. Okay, more specifically — when it comes to one toy they are. And what’s that magical toy? It’s Teddy Ruxpin. Oh, those animatronic eyes! How we all completely loved, but were kind of creeped out, by the talking teddy bear. Well, now your kiddo can experience all that is Ruxpin. But, now there’s a twist. Teddy has a techy update, and we’ve got the details for you.
Wicked Cool Toys has created a modern day version of the beloved bear, catering to today’s tech-savvy kids. Not only does Teddy still have all the animatronic awesomeness as his predecessor, but he also comes with an app.
As if Ruxpin’s iconic eyes didn’t already make you feel like the little bear was following you, the newer version has LCD eyes that actually change shapes (apparently with more than 40 different expressions).
Of course, Teddy is still telling tales to little readers. He’s got a motorized mouth that syncs to his speech and touch sensors that allow your kiddo to control the stories and the songs. You can use Ruxpin with or without the app, depending on how your child wants to play.
