Virtuoso Bears Review & #Giveaway


Vosego Ludwig van Beethoven Virtuoso Bear | 40 mins Classical Music for Babies | 15″ Award Winning Musical Soft Toy | Educational Toy | Perfect Gift for Infants Kids AdultsVosego Amadeus Mozart Virtuoso Bear | 40 mins Classical Music for Babies | 15″ Award Winning Musical Soft Toy | Educational Toy | Perfect Gift for Infants Kids Adults

     Babies are able to hear sounds as early as 24 weeks gestation. Playing classical music for babies in the womb is said to build brain connections. Classical music continues to have many benefits for babies. It is soothing, sparks creativity, helps to build memory, improves concentration, builds a love for music, improves pattern recognition, and helps to build a bond with mom. Recently I was introduced to Virtuoso Bears.


     Virtuoso Bears are teddy bears dressed in period clothing.  They have a hidden switch that can play seven tracts of Mozart's most recognized melodies. There are currently two bears to choose from. Amadeus Mozart and Ludwig Van Beethoven.  Both are super soft and cuddly. They are dressed in adorable clothing and resemble the classical composer for which they are named after. They can play up to 40 minutes of sonatas, concertos, and symphonies. Their music box is tucked away inside the bear and easily turned on and off with a touch to the belly.  The bears are washable. They stand at 38" tall.   The classical music stimulates babies cognitive development.  Each bear plays their own set of songs.

Ludwig Van Beethoven plays:                        Amadeus Mozart plays:
  1. Fur Elise                                                             1. Rondo Alla Turca
  2. Symphony No.5                                                  2. Symphony No. 40
  3. Moonlight Sonata                                               3. Eine Kleine Nachtmusik (Allegro)
  4. Pastoral Symphony                                            4. Piano Concerto No. 21
  5. Emperor Concerto                                              5. Le Nozze di Figaro
  6. Sonata Pathetique                                              6. Eine Kleine Nachtmusik (Romance Andante)
  7. Ode to Joy                                                          7. Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star




     We received Ludwig Van Beethoven.  And I was amazed at how soft he is.  So squishy and soft.  The music box is not really noticeable from the outside.  There is a volume control and the volume stays within safe zones for infants.  You can also skip tracks.  The melodies are so soothing.  My daughter likes to hug her bear and listen to the soft sounds.  She cuddles him on the couch and in bed. He has so much detail including the musical notes on his jacket.



     The bear came in a very nice decorated box. These bears would be great gifts for an expecting or new mom.  This is going on my list of ideas for any new mom's in the future.  I love that it can last for years with baby.  My daughter is 2 and she loves it.


Win it:  One (1) Arizona Mama reader will win their choice of either Amadeus Mozart or Ludwig Van Beethoven Virtuoso Bear.

Enter in the Giveaway  Tools form below! This giveaway will be open until 6/2 at 11:59PM (MST).  Open to US Only (48 contiguous states) .

Last Minute Non-Candy Easter Basket Gifts




     It seems like Easter has come really quick this year.  I can't believe it is already this weekend.  If you are like me you are scrambling for Easter Basket gifts. I try to add mostly non-candy items when possible.  Here are a few that I am excited to add to my kids baskets this year.  


     Chameleon Kidz has a new travel set. The smaller size is great for an Easter Basket.  The Blendy Pens Kit contains a variety of pen colors that can be blended smoothly to make 276 possible color blending combinations. When 2 Blendy pens are in the fusion chamber and you twist then stunning custom color blends and some really incredible art. The kit contains reusable stencils, magic reveal posters, and an art portfolio kids can color and personalize for hours of color blending and airbrushing fun.  Blendy Pens are non-toxic. 

  


     Whiffer Sniffers smell delicious and are fun to collect.  They are backpack clips with personality. Every year they introduce two new series. This year the Series 6 part 1 and part 2 are both already available. They even have a new Easter character this year. There are even fun mystery packs and rare golden mystery packs. I received all the series 6 characters. My kids are so excited.  The only toys allowed at their school are backpack clips. So they are excited to pick which to put on their bag for next week.  They keep sniffing them all trying to decide which is best.  Problem is they all smell so good.  

 



     Smart Toys and games have compacts and pockets games that are perfectly sized for Easter Baskets. iQ XOXO is a compact game board with a transparent lid. There are 10 colorful game pieces with X's & O's on them. There is also a game booklet with 120 challenges and solutions. JumpIN is a cute rabbit themed games.  Players move their rabbit around the board, jumping to safety.  There are 60 challenges easy to expert.  These games would be great for travel or out at a restaurant to stay busy while waiting.  Check out all the other great compacts and pocket games from Smart Toys.  


     As you are doing your last minute Easter shopping these are some great products to fill your baskets with.
