Displayed at the recent Kind + Jugend 2008 in Cologne, Germany, their MP3 Teddy Bear meets toy safety standards for ages 36 months to 5 years. The player is cordless (batteries not included) and has a built-in loudspeaker. Available in blue, pink, or non-gender specific beige/caramel, you can purchase one online for 69.99€ (~$100.00.)
