Madelyn's favorite activity is listening to Five Little Monkeys and Head and Shoulders which Sebastian also loves. They both crack up and have a blast when smart-e-bear starts singing really fast. Madelyn is learning songs and stories and Sebastian, 9 years old, is learning things like Head and Shoulds in Japanese!
He's the only bear with a computer interface, a lesson plan that you can customize, AND he's totally wired into the children's music scene - with access to thousands of songs by artist like Sara Hickman.
To set up smart-e-bear, plug him into your computer's USB port for download, and he's ready to engage and interact as your child sings and reads along, while answering questions by squeezing his paws.
smart-e-bear asks Madelyn questions such as "Do you want to play simon says? If yes, push my hand, if no push my foot". Then smart-e-bear says "simon says push my yellow foot" and she pushes his yellow foot. She loves that smart-e-bear interacts with her when she pushes his hands and feet. Madelyn finds smart-e-bear very easy to understand and follow. smart-e-bear's interactive design lets Madelyn decide what games to play, or stories to hear, with a squeeze of his hands or feet. When she first got smart-e-bear she had to push around on his hands and feet to find the sensor but after a couple times of playing, she knows where they are without a problem.
smart-e-bear speaks English and Spanish, and calls your child by name. I can select age-appropriate content, customizing Madelyn's learning experience with thousands of songs, stories and games. Like iTunes, most songs and activities are .99 to download.
smart-e-bear is soft and cuddly. Other than having a small module box stuffed way into his back, he is a regular super soft and plush bear and can be squeezed just like any plush animal.
