This is an amazing replica of the 1980's version. There were many other incarnations of Teddy Ruxpin from the 1992 Playskool version to the 1998 Yes! Entertainment version. But, with the exception of the original Worlds of Wonder phenomenon, none have come close to capturing this character's endearing charm.

I know a lot of people will think that $70 is a lot of money for a Teddy Ruxpin, but they cost about the same, if not more, in the 1980's. This version, however, is a bit more durable. There are plenty of people who still have working 80's versions, but mine died a few years ago, and I snatched this up as soon as it was released.

Teddy is smaller, which is great for little kids. He's not as bulky or heavy. He looks the same as his 20 year-old counterpart, and sounds even better. Many people who owned a Teddy as children may remember the tapes coming unwound, and adults would have to shell out another $20 for another copy of the same book & tape. Have no fear! This Teddy takes MP3 cartridges, which means no more unwinding analog cassettes! Each set comes packaged securely in it's own special box, which is a great protection against the unpredictable nature of a three year-old.

In the 1980's $20 got you one book and tape set. Nowadays, you get two book & tape sets for $20. There's two books for each story (one with the words for older kids, the other with pictures for younger listeners...) Each cartridge holds two stories, and you can jump from one to the other using the controls on Teddy's back (no more flipping the tape over to listen to it again!)

Some might be intimidated by the hefty price tag and seduced by cheaper, lesser-known storytelling bears, but this bear is worth every penny.

I was going to buy my childern ( 3 and 1 1/2 ) the T J Bearytales for christmas until i came upon Teddy Ruxpin. I like the fact that T J Bearytales moves his arms and legs and ears, but i didn't like his voice at all. As a little girl i remember going to bed at night with my teddy ruxpin and listening to him sing lullibes and i loved it. Teddy ruxpin is so soothing at bed time and yet during the day when he is reading storys he is so exciting. Plus i also love the characters it helps with childrens imagination. I will gladly spend $70 on this classic!

The original Teddy Ruxpin came out when I was [...]and I remember being mesmorized by him. I would carry him with me everywhere and listen to him tell me stories and sing songs all the time. Over the years, my Teddy didn't last and I saw more recent models. They however didn't interest me because they didn't look like my Teddy. But, when I saw this one I just had to have it! I have to admit that I am so happy because this looks almost identical to the Teddy I used to have.
There are some differences which I think make Teddy even better. This Teddy is smaller, he uses cartridges instead of tapes, and he is softer.
Plus, Teddy Ruxpin paved the way for all of the other talking toys. I do wish they would bring Grubby the Octopede (Teddy's best friend) back though. Back in 1985, when you plugged Teddy and Grubby into each other, they would talk and tell the stories together.
I've seen some reviews for a new bear on the market called T.J. Bearytales, and while other bears can be awesome, NOTHING beats Teddy Ruxpin.

I had one of the original Teddy Ruxpin bears back in 1985. I was three years old and remember him very well. I even had Grubby when he came out too (yes, I was spoiled). I listened to them so much that they eventually wore out and stopped working. I'm a Reading Specialist for elementary students now... go figure, right! Rock on Teddy! You set me off on the right foot and I'm happy to see it still exists.

We got the Teddy Ruxpin today, and my kids loved it, except for one thing... You have to buy an additional cassette if you want to hear how the story ends! I was pretty shocked. The Teddy comes with one cassette, and at the end of the cassette it tells you that the story continues on cassette 2. When I heard this, I went online to see what they would cost me. They run between $10 - $19.99. Also, I agree with another review I read, the volume is WAY too low, even on the highest setting. I thought the Teddy would come with several stories, not just one, and certainly not HALF of one!

Verified Purchase
My son is Downs Syndrome and had always been super hard to buy toys for. He just wasn't interested in what was available. I was VERY shocked to see him mesmerized by Teddy. He went through a set of batteries the first day and we had to put Teddy away to get him to eat his Christmas dinner! They were very close friends right from the beginning. I can't recommend Teddy enough! The only con I can find is the nose can break off easily.

I actually bought this Teddy Ruxpin for my adult son. Back on his 4th birthday I gave him one of the original Teddy Ruxpin's from the 80's. He always loved that bear. As time goes on you grow up and part with your childhood friends. But the memories he had with that bear still remain with him so when I saw that they had brought out the new and improved Teddy Ruxpin I just couldn't resist giving him back a piece of his childhood. He still loves that bear! Thanks!!
