Normally, I don't let my kids anywhere near my iPhone. Occassionally though, we let them play with my husband's iPod Touch. Since it's not an everyday occurence that they get this privilege, it is a really special occassion for them. So when I broke out the soft, cushy HappiTaps Beary Happi bear, slid it over my iPhone so they could hold onto it safely and showed them the app they could play with, they were over the moon with excitement.

The best quip came from my daughter. "Ewwwww, he ate a bug!" This was a good lesson on what bears eat.
The kids sat next to each other and watched the other one feed the bear, put him to sleep, play peekaboo, sing and listen as the bear told them stories. There are other activities available for download (in app) but there is plenty to keep the kiddos busy with the free version.
The worst part of all? Listening to the one who wasn't playing at the moment whine about it being their turn! My personal recommendation is this is great for kids 4 and under. There's even a "Toddler Mode" that you can choose and it will shuffle through all the activities automatically.
Take a look-see at this YouTube video, it's under one minute in length and gives you a good overview of what it's all about.
You can purchase your very own HappiTaps Beary Happi bear for $19.99 from the website HappiTaps.com and download the app for FREE from the same website or the iTunes app store (search "Beary Happi").
