Glowberry Bears are one of the great toys The Brainy Company offers for young children. The recommended age for the Glowberry Bears is 3+, but I can see how even a little guy like my (almost) 18-month-old would love to cuddle, snuggle, and giggle with Twinkleton, one of the Glowberry characters.
This is a great interactive toy that can bring smiles to any little one who loves stuffed animals. The Glowberry Bears aren’t just ordinary stuffed animals. These bears have a glowing belly that is activated by a tickle of the tummy (which also makes the bear go into a silly giggle spell) or by simply pressing the bear’s right paw. Pressing the right paw actually turns on the night light feature which can help comfort little ones as they go to sleep at night. The light stays on for about 1 minute and then turns off automatically as the bear says “Night Night.” If you press the bear’s left paw, the bear will talk to you and ask questions. Unfortunately, the bear can’t answer back, but the imaginations of preschoolers will make the conversation keep going. With a little imagination, Glowberry Bears can even talk to each other!
You may be asking yourself what “Glowberry” is all about. Well, from the Glowberry packaging itself, I learned that:
“Behind mountains of snow and glaciers of ice, is nestled an island of magical delight. On Glowberry Island, flowers bloom, and berries glow, streams meander and waterfalls flow. Houses are orange and pink and blue, the island comes to life in every hue. It is on the island where Glowberry Bears thrive – Little Glow, Twinkles, Twinkleton, Dusty McStardust, Summer Lightly – all five!”
If you’re searching for a gift for a special little one, Glowberry Bears… or any of the great toys that The Brainy Company has to offer might be just what you’re looking for.
