WowWee Polar Bear Cub Has a Lot To Be Desired.

While strolling through Radio Shack one day I stumbled across this cute and loveable Polar Bear cub. They had stocked their shelves at Christmas time with all different types of these animals. When I first seen these they were so cute and I had my daughter with me and I just could not turn down those beautiful blue eyes of hers. So, that is when we had to ask how much that these animated stuffed animals were. These started out at fifty dollars, but they were trying to get rid of all of them, so they were only $20 for the large ones and $10 for the small ones. The only problem is that these as cute as they may be only have a 90 day warranty.

Description
This Polar Bear cub only weighs 1 pound and 12 ounces. It is 14" tall and 7" wide, most of the bear is white, soft and cuddly with the exception of the nose, head and stomach area. Since the mouth can move it is harder than the rest of the body, and the stomach area is a little hard because it houses the battery compartment. This takes four AA batteries to operate properly.  Just like in real life this polar bear has black eyes and a black nose, the pads of its paws are also black. Even though a real life bear can go into the water, this one cannot be submersed in water.

Inside of this bear there is a speaker and a motor,2 touch sensors, one tilt sensor, volume control, and a microcontroller with pre-recorded sounds. You must remember that you have to turn this on and off to get it out of the try me mode that it is in for display purposes.

Experience
When we first purchased this bear we thought that our daughter would love it and interact with it, but all she does sleep with it. So I would think twice about purchasing one of these because in our book it is a waste of money. Even though it does do what it says it will do, such as make baby animal noises and the eyes open and close. There are a few sensors located in different areas, that if touched will activate the polar bear into doing different motions and making sounds.

The battery compartment and main power switch is located in the stomach area. There are touch sensors on the back, head, and a try me sensor located in the left ear to test in the store. The mouth will move and the eyes will blink. When the polar bear is turned over or upside down, there a sensor to tell the bear that it is in the wrong position.

This bear also comes with an adoption certificate in which you can pick a name, birth date and age of your new pet. Just about anything that you do with this bear, will get you some kind of reaction. When you do not play with the bear it will also fall asleep and you will hear a snoring noise, plus this mode will save on the batteries. Whether it is a stroke of the head just cradling it, it will either blink its eyes or make baby animal sounds. On the outside of the box you will find important info about Polar Bears in general.

Conclusion
For the most part this bear will do what it says, but is it worth the money? My guess is, no. Now if you children play with this and interact with it, it is worth the money but, in my case all my daughter does with it is sleep with and I could have just gave her a stuffed polar bear for a lot less money.
