My Thoughts on Parker, Your Augmented Reality Teddy Bear:
I have to say that just opening the box was a unique and special event. Parker is a wonderful teddy bear. He is so soft and you just want to hug him close and never let go. It makes me smile to think about our little one hugging her “Parker” while we went through the directions for setting him up.
Along with Parker, his packaging includes a canvas drawstring backpack, a interactive toy thermometer, a toy stethoscope, a wooden toy medicine bottle and spoon, and a felt x-ray bib. Oh, and let’s not forget the special letter from Parker.
Through the app on your device, you can take an x-ray of Parker, decorate his surroundings, and even take his temperature! What a great tool to fire up your child’s imagine.
The Parker App is easy to download and set up. You can download it free from the Apple Store.
There is also a Bedtime Kit for Parker. It contains a robe and slippers for Parker, a bedtime story book, matching eye covers and tooth brushes for your little one and Parker. Now this is taking bedtime to a whole new level! Parker, Your Augmented Reality Teddy Bear is made available through Seedling and is available both on Seedling and through Apple.
