These adorable bears record and play back a message up to 30 seconds in length and they have been adapted to accept a standard 1/8" (3.5mm) switch (not included) Press your switch or press the button on the bear and the bear plays back your recorded message while moving his/her mouth. Available as a boy or girl bear. Uses 2 AA batteries, included. Can be used to record a message or song for a special someone. Or, a message can be recorded on it for the user to play back. Perfect for beginning communication, relaying messages back and forth between school and home. Some beginning switch users aren't real motivated by plain ole communication buttons, but having an animated bear speak their message can be much more fun. Bear measures about 10.5" tall. Price is per bear.
