Freddy bear makes a great friend for Annabelle and for her, he is a great comfort too. I have a feeling that Annabelle & Freddy are going to be great friends for many years to come. My friend Freddy bear RRP £39.99 which for such a fun and educational interactive toy is an amazing price."

Review from Mama Geek
"Overall we have been really pleased with Freddy Bear. He is a firm favourite of Lydia’s already, and can frequently be found snuggled up next to her on the sofa. Even when he is turned off she loves to play with him and cuddle him, and has taken him to bed with her to snuggle with on numerous occasions."

What's Good To Do
Freddy Bear got a 5/5 rating on What's Good To Do. Here's what they thought:
"My two year old grandson really loves playing with Freddy and listening to him tell stories. As he grows older and develops a greater learning ability, he is likely to appreciate the other features more. My five year old granddaughter enjoys playing the advanced level of the games and is also amazed that Freddy knows so much about her and her little brother."

Review from Blogger Mummy Lauren
Blogger Mummy Lauren and her LO have reviewed My Friend Freddy Bear. Some excerpts of their review are below or you can read the full article at BloggerMummyLauren.co.uk.
"The conversation function on Freddy is great. Touch the large blue icon with the face, and Freddy will talk to your child using the information you entered in to the app earlier. It will then wait for a response, before replying. It was great to see Caitlin's face light up when Freddy asked her a question about her best friend, or tell her that he loved chocolate and pizza too!"
"All in all, I think Freddy is a fantastic little toy. The bluetooth connectivity is an awesome feature. A lot of children have tablets now, and this is a great way to bring toys and technology together. At 5, I think Caitlin is at the top end of what the bear is designed for, but she absolutely loves it and the games and stories are at a good level for her. Freddy bear would be perfect for Children aged 2 up to about Caitlin's age. The fact that the bear grows with the child is another great feature."

Review on Run, Jump, Scrap!
Thank you to Sarah of Run, Jump, Scrap! for her review of My Friend Freddy Bear.
"My daughter loves to play with Freddy Bear and he has gone down a storm. She likes tickling and cuddling him. I think as she gets older some of the games on the app she will be able to play more as her understanding and co-ordination improves. She usually has a 30 second attention span but this held it for longer than that; a definite plus."

Check out the fab video from KidzCoolIt.com!
"This is the toy we all wanted Teddy Ruxpin to be – we love Freddy Teddy, he’s now part of the family. Freddy is so incredibly simple to set up with all your child’s personal details and really quite lovable. Bex (at only 3 years old) finds it very easy to access all the interactive games on the app and love nattering away with him. She’s always so surprised how much he know’s about her. Its quite funny and very cute to watch. Highly Recommended!!!"
Review on Mummy's Zone
My Friend Freddy Bear has a lovely review on Mummy's Zone. Here are some excerpts:
"I loved that you can set him up secretly so it was extra magical that Freddy Bear knew everything I had filled in on the app."
"[Oscar] couldn’t believe it when Freddy asked him how his brother Archie was, he just kept looking at me in amazement. Archie likes him too and Oscar shows Freddy to him and he is lovely and soft for Archie to have a cuddle with although Freddy knows when he is on his side or upside down and asks to be put the right way up again. Clever Freddy!"
"I love that with Freddy Bear that as well as having a fun bear to talk to there is a learning element in there to with the maths games and animal facts and also Oscar quite likes to sit and listen to him tell him a story and show Archie too. It is no surprise that Freddy Bear is one of the must have toys for Christmas this year and I would buy one now to avoid disappointment when they have flown off the shelves."
"My Friend Freddy Bear has an RRP of £39.99 and in my opinion that is a great price for such a fab toy that will grow with your child and eventually Oscar can pass down to Archie."

Freddy Bear reviewed by What The Redhead Said
Freddy Bear has been reviewed by mummy blogger What the Redhead Said.
"LP adores Freddy Bear. She loves that he talks to her, plays with her and teaches her things. Sometimes we’re not able to play with LP – if we’re cooking dinner or something – and it’s nice that she has a cuddly friend that can play games with her at those times. Little Man loves Freddy Bear too and has already said he’d like his own one.
My Friend Freddy Bear is the sort of toy both adults and children love. The kids love how cute and friendly he is, that he’ll play with them and talk to them but I love that he’s educational and that he encourages the children to try again when playing a game and not to just give up. I can imagine Freddy Bear being on a lot of Christmas lists this year – and rightly so."
