It's a Television AND a Plush Toy!

As if we need a way to get kids to watch more television.


Momlogic's Momstrosity: A furry polar bear television is one of the many gadgets on display at the 2010 Consumer Electronics Show. The Teletubby-esque animal has a 19" TV screen implanted in its tummy. Eh-Oh!

Produced by Hannspree, the arctic bear TV is purportedly designed to raise environmental awareness. The only thing it does for me is raise awareness of the odiousness of market research. I imagine the initial conversation at Hannspree went like this:

R&D Flunky: Boss, our data says kids love television, toys, and animals. Maybe we should combine the three?

C.E.O.: Let's use a polar bear so we can say we're concerned about global warming!

R&D Flunky: Done.

Here's another reason why blurring the line between toy and television is a ridic idea: Buy this boob tube -- list price almost 300 bucks -- and get ready to say this to your kid: "No honey, you can't take the television into bed with you!"

This product is lame, but the vitriol with which you speak about it seems a little out of control. I am sure there is some other product out there that is truly damaging to children that you can direct your anger at.

Say whatever you want about it, but still…you gotta admit it’s cute. :)

Seriously, you guys are way behind the market. I’ve seen this for the first time in early 2006 by Hanspree, a German manufacturer, and I’m not even claiming I saw it early…
