Toddler loves it

S Neill

This is the kind of gift for a toddler I can get behind! My 3y/o received this for his bday from his grandma and I am so happy he did! It incorporates technology while still focusing on creativity and imaginative play. He loves playing "Dr. Bear" with the iPad but still takes Parker to bed with him every night to cuddle. It is really the best of both worlds! In the overload of gifts from both Christmas and his birthday (which was a lot!), this was and still is by far his favorite. Highly recommend!

Works great after update!


My daughter got the bear as a birthday gift, and we tried using it this weekend and the app was... limited, to say the least. I came here to leave a bad review and saw most of the reviews had a response about a new update to fix it. Yup! With the new update, everything is working much better, and my daughter seems to love Parker much more today.

Kind of lame


The app is too repetitive, too many flaws to start with right when my daughter open it on xmas day the pic didnt work. I wish that there were more options to play with, my lil one likes it i dont... is not worth the price anyone can get games like the app for free
