smart-e-bear *Giveaway*



Looking for something a little well, smarter, than your standard stuffed animal this Holiday season? Smart-e-bear is just what you are looking for. It's a soft, snuggly, little best friend that is always ready to play and learn with your child. Whether your still in the diaper stage or getting ready to head out to Kindergarten, Smart-e-bear stays relevant to your child's life stage and interest.

What is it exactly? It's basically a stuffed animal with interactive intelligence (that you, as a parent can control). It's easy to load the bear with age appropriate games, songs, activities, and even personalize the messages with your child's name.

Smart-e-bear comes ready to rock and roll right out of the box, with it's plug and play capabilities. Looking to add more "smarts" the the smart-e-bear? Simply download and one of the many features, sync your toy up, and it's ready to go.

Since I have a toddler, we've been loving the shape and color coded paws to play games such as "simon says" and "copy cat". Kids can engage the bear in interactive games by pressing his hands and feet to respond.

As your child develops and grows, so does the Smart-e-bear. The way I see it, with it's wide age range (2-6) and it's extensive online library of applications and activities, the smart-e-bear is a well deserved investment toy ($79.99) that will grow with your child.

We are not the only one loving the Smart-e-bear these days. The National Parenting Publications Awards (NAPPA) has bestowed the prestigious Gold Seal on the Smart-e-bear.

Designed primarily for the 2-6 year old crowd, this toy will be a huge hit with your non-readers and early readers alike. We give it 2 paws up.

Win it! We have a Smart-e-bear to give away to one Simple reader. To be entered, go to the Smart-e-bear website, look around, and let us know what feature (song, story, game, ect.) you find most exciting. Come back here and leave a comment in this post.

Giveaway ends Tuesday December 9th, 2008.
