Yeah, I don’t mean to be critical but the original bear was a little creepy.
My daughter was very sensitive to stuff like that when she was young and probably would have sworn off the phone completely with something like that. (Autism spectrum… when she was really little she used to scream when people would try to use a CD player because a CD skipped once… Fortunately, she’s mostly grown out of the worst quirks.)
Edit: one of the big positive things when she was younger was she hated pretty much all human dolls. Looking through her eyes, they are super-creepy. She refused to go down any toy aisle with a Barbi or a baby. That was just fine with me.
Today she’s a pretty well adjusted young teen. Some parts of her brain caught up with the others or something.
