This year Christmas is very special at our house, because this is Bellamy Blue’s first Christmas, and it is our family’s first Christmas with a girl in the house. We have been looking for some very special gifts for our little Bellamy Blue, and of course her three big brothers think everything has to be pink for her. When we discovered Cora The Smart Cub, we knew that we had found the perfect present for our baby girl.
Cora the Smart Cub from Vtech is a fun talking teddy bear that can be personalized with special Vtech software. It comes with a USB computer cable, which enables you to personalize Cora to fit your child’s personality. You can personalize Cora with your child’s favorite stories, songs, family member’s names, friends names and more, and Cora really did take on a whole new life, once we used the Vtech Learning Lodge to personalize Cora.
Right out of the box, Cora comes with 40 phrases, four sing-along songs, two stories and 30 melodies, but by personalizing Cora through the Vtech Learning Lodge on the Vtech website, you can download 130 melodies, 20 stories and lots of fun activities. I’m not much of a technology fan, but I was able to download the songs, phrases and stories I liked in a matter of a few minutes, and it was easy breezy to do so.
The first time Bellamy Blue heard Cora the Smart Cub say her name, she had a priceless expression. Then her older brothers walked by her in the playpen, and soon I heard screams of amazement. Cora puzzled them all with delight, and she is loved by everyone in our family.
The older kids especially loved how during September, Cora the Smart Cub would say “Let’s Celebrate Belllamy Blue, Halloween is coming next month.” Today, October 1st, Cora says “Halloween is coming in a few weeks.” They love it!
Bellamy Blue quickly figured out how to squeeze Cora’s hands and feet to make her talk and sing, and she is now one of the favorites in the playpen.
Bellamy Blue got to get a little preview of Cora The Smart Cub, and while she was a bit hesitant at first, she soon started talking to Cora The Smart Cub. Did you hear her squeal of joy?
