    Think back to a moment in your life when you felt like your heart might actually explode.

    That’s really the only way to describe what happened when Teddy Ruxpin arrived at our doorstep.

    A few changes have been made to 2017's revamped, internet-age bear:

    His animated eyes can make more than 40 expressions, in reaction to what’s going on in the story — but one downside is that while they're friendly-looking and innocent enough when he's on, Teddy's eyes seem...hollow when he's turned off.

    The bottom line is that my kids LOVE him.

    Get Teddy Ruxpin from Walmart for $84, Toys "R" Us for $89.99, or Amazon for $116.15+.
