I purchased two of these bears because I always like to have gifts on hand. I read the reviews and hesitated because of the concerns about harsh voice. I decided that a plush bear is always a great gift and I decided that if the voice is disturbing as some reviewers suggested, the parents could simply turn off the sound. The bear is soft and "plush" and as reported the voice is not what I would describe as soft and sweet, but I did not find it too harsh. I was pleased with the purchase. I gave the teddy bear to my neighbor's for their one year old son with the explanation that they may not like the voice and could always just use it as a cuddly toy. Yesterday his mother told me that they play the prayer every night when they put their son to bed and he lays his head down, folds his hands under his face and goes to sleep. Today I bumped into his father and he said that the bear "is one of the best gifts he has received." I look forward to the day when my young neighbor begins to recite the prayer with his "prayer" bear. I will buy more of these to keep on hand! Thank you.
My Granddaughter loves her's carry's it around everywhere.
Voice is not a child voice. Rather harsh. Would not have ordered if I had heard the voice.
If I could have heard a recording of the prayer, I would not have bought it. It is not a soft voice of a child. Slightly harsh.
nice enough, the words are a little different than I'm used to, but still a cute bear. Wish I could have heard a recording first though
