Vosego Amadeus and Ludwig Bears
(Vosego $49.99 each)
If you’ve shopped for a musical doll with music that is in-tune and pleasant, you know they're not too easy to find. Enter two exceptions to the rule! Bring home either Ludwig (as in Beethoven) or Amadeus (as in Mozart). Each of these 15-inch musical bears has a music device inside that starts and stops by pushing on its belly. Dressed in period costumes that are velvety soft to the touch, the maestros have stitched features for safety and play beautiful classical music for forty minutes—plenty of time to lull little ones to sleep. What makes them unusual? It's the quality of the music, recoded by professional pianists. Ludwig Beethoven plays Fur Elise, Symphony No. 5, 6, and Ode to Joy from the 9th plus, Moonlight Sonata, Pathetique, and the Emperor Concerto. Or if you prefer Mozart, Wolfgang Amadeus plays, music from his Eine Kleine Nachtmusik, Piano Concerto No. 21 in C Major, Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star, Symphony No. 40, and Piano Concerto No. 21. Scientists have debunked the claims that classical music will make your baby smarter, but this music is sure to be a lot easier on the ear and will probably sooth them (and you) more than most.
