It's a Television AND a Plush Toy!

sign up for the momlogic newsletter Tweet This

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!"
