Yeah, stick 'em in their cot, preferably in a harness, keep their eyes open with matchsticks and stick this in front of their face. Fantastic. They'll learn loads, and you can go down the pub.

Clearly you dont have kids - probably a good thing.

Erm, bit harsh there !

I'm obviously a terrible mum for having to leave my 2 playing by themselves when I have to clean up/cook/do the washing etc. Just because parents buy things like this for their kids, doesn't mean it's a substitute for 'parent' time, it's just an extra for when we have to do other things.

Perhaps you'd approve more if kids were just given a stick and hoop :x

interactive learning .. it works you know. I don't think it's in the T&C's of buying this that you have to leave them on their own to use this. Music can expand the mind also and the lure of the teddy may keep them more focused (while learning subconciuolsy) than a lovely cardboard book.

I assume (if your gene pool allows) that you would never let you children learn from something other than books?

Id pay £10 but would want a 90% share in the bear.

My son is 2 1/2 and he loves it listening to stories, watching his personal vids or lazytown etc, and looking at photos of him and his family and listening to his fav songs too, Its so good he can cuddle it and everything. best present for any child.

Doesn't really teach them how to interact with other "real" people though does it.
I know I prefer to sit down with my little one and teach her, read books and play - would rather that than say "here kid, a teddy for you, now tell me when your bored"

I'm not having ago at any parents, it's just that these type of toys bug me sometimes - so please do n ot feel offended or annoyed by my comments.

Oh don't mind me, I just think this thing is awful, and typical of the kind of thing **** parents shove in their kids faces to get them out from under their feet, and then try to pass it off as educational to assuage their guilt.

And I've got two kids...as it happens.

Could you not sit down with your kid and use this? It would just be another tool in the arsenal of learning, books are great (we all know this) but moving picture and sound are interesting to kids too. I'm sure i would have loved sitting on the floor with my mum and this teddy when i was a kid watching different animals/colours/shapes going by and getting praise when asked what they were, and getting to give it a quick cuddle too!

It's a tv they're encouraged to cuddle.

I'm not sure I could come up with a more inappropriate toy for a child if I tried.

how about a " my first stabbing kit"

f**kwit

That would be illegal.
Are you an idiot?

No, it's just a little more inappropriate than a f**King teddy!

I think you need to calm down a little, you sound irrational and possibly dangerously unstable. Can I recommend a change in diet, maybe a little light exercise.

Getting back to the case in hand, I said "toy". As far as I know, it would be difficult to classify a stabbing set as a toy.

I think I've explained why I don't like this toy. "Look son, come and cuddle the telly, stare right at it, that's right, no need to blink". I have a hard time encouraging my kids not to stare at the telly as it is, giving them their own little tv to cuddle in the form of a bear just sounds awful.
Yes, I'm sure it can be used in a nice controlled way, where you make the most of the interactivity etc and so forth. But that will only last the first couple of times because life is hectic, and a parent has to do many things. I guarantee that virtually all kids will be watching this alone within a week of having it. It's a terrible, terrible "toy". Notwithstanding exploding lego, or napalm-filled postman pat dolls and anything else your puerile mind can come up with - this is the worst toy I can think of.

Balls - there goes my ideas:)

I'm with Duncan -

The only Dragon unmoved by the cuddly bear was Duncan Bannatyne. "I'm so … The only Dragon unmoved by the cuddly bear was Duncan Bannatyne. "I'm so sad." he said. "Reading bedtime stories is a father's job. I don’t want to be replaced by a teddy bear." He was out.

Just to declare my position I am out, but there may be others wishing to invest

[SIZE=4]I'm sure everyone on here had a teddy bear of some sort as a child......it does'nt replace getting cuddles does/did it....it never did for my kids (grown up now,and well adjusted) it's just a toy to be used along side your skills as parents,not a replacement...this is why we buy toys...to teach through play and have fun,this looks fun to me.....ps I still cuddle my kids and they range from 26yrs to 11yrs.....and 5 of them too....:santa:[/SIZE]
