Ratings and Reviews
UI is not easy for kids
I really want to love this! The concept is great! Almost all the buttons are on the very bottom of the screen, which causes the app switcher to kick in on iPhone Xr (and other X’s) making the app very frustrating. Apple specifically warns against placing buttons in that safe area because of the system gestures.

Toddler loves it
This is the kind of gift for a toddler I can get behind! My 3y/o received this for his bday from his grandma and I am so happy he did! It incorporates technology while still focusing on creativity and imaginative play. He loves playing "Dr. Bear" with the iPad but still takes Parker to bed with him every night to cuddle. It is really the best of both worlds! In the overload of gifts from both Christmas and his birthday (which was a lot!), this was and still is by far his favorite. Highly recommend!
Would love to change rating if problems are solved
I purchased the bear in hopes to use it with patients in the hospital to explain and ease fear of medical procedures and tools. Before using the bear I was in love.
However when setting the bear up, I downloaded the app on both a Samsung device and an iPhone. When using the app on the Samsung device, I could hear the sound but I couldn’t get the letter to activate for some odd reason.
When using the iPhone I was able to set up everything on the bear to use properly. I was able to start playing games and see how the bear works, however but there was no sound.
I would love to figure out how to get the devices and bear to work properly instead of returning the bear.
As far as the games, they do began to get a bit repetitive after 5 mins. However but the bear and games are for children and not adult entertainment.
