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!"

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

I have been surfing on-line greater than 3 hours today, but I by no means found any attention-grabbing article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web might be a lot more useful than ever before.

With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My site has a lot of unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know any ways to help stop content from being ripped off? I’d really appreciate it.

You actually make it seem really easy along with your presentation however I in finding this matter to be really something that I believe I might never understand. It kind of feels too complex and very broad for me. I am looking ahead in your subsequent publish, I’ll attempt to get the dangle of it!

So not really on the same topic as your post, but I found this today and I just can’t resist sharing. Mrs. Agathe’s dishwasher quit working so she called a repairman. Since she had to go to work the next day, she told him, “I’ll leave the key under the mat. Fix the dishwasher, leave the bill on the counter, and I’ll mail you the check. Oh, and by the way…don’t worry about my Doberman. He won’t bother you. But, whatever you do, do NOT under ANY circumstances talk to my parrot!” When the repairman arrived at Mrs. Agathe’s apartment the next day, he discovered the biggest and meanest looking Doberman he had ever seen. But just as she had said, the dog simply laid there on the carpet, watching the repairman go about his business. However, the whole time the parrot drove him nuts with his incessant cursing, yelling and name-calling. Finally the repairman couldn’t contain himself any longer and yelled, “Shut up, you stupid ugly bird!” To which the parrot replied, “Get him, Spike!”
