OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Have you ever been curious about what playing with a bear cub is like? Well, now you know with FurReal Cubby the Curious Bear! Go on all sorts of adventures with this realistic electronic plush. There are multiple activation points on Cubby that cause Cubby to react with more than 100 sound-and-motion combinations. He can move his head, eyes, ears, nose, mouth, and arms while making a lot of fun sounds. 

The activation points can be found on Cubby's head and cheeks, tummy, and left paw. You can make Cubby laugh, sigh and wiggle his nose, or even play Peek-a-boo. You can also talk to Cubby or blow on his nose. Some of those reactions include cute babbling and sneezing. Cubby will even fall asleep if you lay him on his back. 

And Cubby comes with an interactive three-in-one accessory. First, it's a bottle shaped like a honeycomb. Feed it to Cubby for eating sounds. Then, unscrew the top and you've got a honeycomb treat that you can also feed to Cubby. And the bottom of the bottle becomes a brush for keeping Cubby's fur looking nice. 

And Cubby's legs are poseable so that he can stand or sit.

There is even a Nighttime mode, in which Cubby will close his eyes, make sleepy sounds, and then play soft music or ambient forest sounds for five minutes before shutting off. All other activation points are inactive. This allows kids to sleep with Cubby at naptime or bedtime. 

Is It Fun?

Cubby is adorable with super soft fur, cute sounds, and fun movements. Playing with a real bear cub isn't something kids get to do everyday, but Cubby gives kids realistic interaction that lets them feel like they're playing and caring for their own bear cub. (And it's a little safer than playing with the real thing.) As with all FurReal Friends toys, this is about bringing nurturing animal play to life, whether that's a more traditional pet or, in this case, more of a fantasy pet.

Who It’s For

Cubby the Curious Bear is for ages 4 and up. Kids who like interactive pets and stuffed animals will have fun playing with the very cute Cubby.
