The Cocolo Bear brings smartphone technology to a child's level. Designed specifically for playtime, this cuddly teddy bear provides a new level of interactivity for children. They are able to talk to them and even answer questions. It is almost as though the Cocolo Bear provides a cute persona for Siri.

Created by Cube Works, a studio based in Japan, the Cocolo Bear takes on the form of a traditional teddy bear, which will appeal to parents as much as it will to their children. The smartphone is placed snugly when the Cocolo Bear's heart would be. What makes this toy particularly appealing is the fact that parents will be able to record special messages for their children, which can be played when they're not around.
