Both my son and daughter (aged 5 & 4) love this cute and cuddly Until We Hug Again bear. They’ve been fighting over it and surprisingly, they’ve agreed on a bear share scheme! Just today, the bear was passed onto the next person and the voice was re-recorded. The bear is very well made. The material is very soft to touch and the body is filled with cotton, but not overly so. This makes it easy for the children to cuddle and press to hear the recorded voice. The tips of the limbs are filled with beans/polystyrene pellets which gives it a nice bit of weight.
It is very easy to record the voice by unlocking the switch and pressing the right foot of the bear to record. We all had had a go at recording a message and each time the voice is loud and clear even when they were not holding the bear very closely. I would highly recommend this bear as a present for anyone. It is unique, with it’s ability to record a personalised message, and affordable. They are available now, from over 250 Hallmark stores across the country and www.hallmark.co.uk, Until We Hug Again Bears costs £14.99 each. They are suitable for ages 3+ but may require adult supervision.
