Children love music and we’ve seen a lot of articles lately highlighting the positive impact of music across the spectrum of child development: from creativity and language to math and spatial intelligence. One thing is for sure, we always relied on music to help soothe our children and we still play a favorite lullaby playlist while engaging in our nightly bedtime routine. Hence, we were excited to review the new Virtuoso Bear plush musical toys from Vosego. Two Virtuoso Bears are available, the original Amadeus and the newer Ludwig. Both are styled to resemble their namesakes Amadeus Mozart and Ludwig von Beethoven, as well as including 40 minutes of beautiful classical favorites (you can snag a nice 20% discount on purchase through Amazon till 7/20 on either bear by using the code BC8ZRS75).
We received the new Ludwig bear to review and I fell in love as soon as I saw this little cutie! I am literally hiding it from my youngest because I’m not ready to give it up yet, and he is a fiend for the loveys! In addition to being soft and cuddly, Ludwig plays seven tracks of well-loved music using an ingenious music device insert that can be easily removed and allows both volume control as well as song skipping with a few simple pushes of a single button (pressing the button twice quickly skips to the next song, holding the button down changes volume). I was a little skeptical of the design when I was assembling the music device, but it was really simple to use and easily activated by pushing on Ludwig’s tummy (or back, depending upon how you insert the music device). I love that you can adjust volume of the music without removing the music device, thought I might like to have a little bit softer setting for quiet times.
The bear seems to have been designed for younger kids and the cute facial features are embroidered (We never liked buying ones with hard eyes or noses for our kids). I was, however, able to pull Ludwig’s neckerchief into a loop after tugging on it pretty aggressively, so I’d probably take that off for smaller kiddos. The music device requires 3 AAA batteries (not included) that were easily installed using a Phillips screwdriver. All in all, I really love this Virtuoso Bear and look forward to adding snuggles with Ludwig to our nightly bedtime routine.
To share in the joy of having one of theses cute musical bears to enjoy with your little ones, the wonderful people at Vosego would like to give one of our amazing readers your choice of a Virtuoso Bear:
