Well made, soft, cuddly and cute were the most common words used to describe this adorable plush bear. The big red heart standing out against the bright white “fur” calls out to anyone who see it, “Hug me!” This is more than just a plush play toy, it is an interactive experience. The intention behind the BuppaLaPaloo Bear is to empower children by promoting positive self-image. The bear accomplishes this by using powerful pre-recorded phrases emphasizing self-love when its right paw is squeezed. The message is well-conceived and parents felt good about the goal of helping children see the beauty within them. It also gives parents the ability to record a message of their own that their child can play back whenever they like. The child can record the message as well which they really enjoyed doing. The recording is clear, loud, easy to use, and really sounds like the speaker. The battery pack is sealed shut with small screws, so there is no danger of little hands getting a hold of those. This little bear emits love in every way, and testers just adored it.
