It is a well-known fact that classical music is beneficial in so many ways for babies (to all of us, I'm sure, but definitely to babies). That makes this Ludwig (or Amadeus) premium plush the perfect gift to give to expectant parents. Moms can play the musical bears for baby before they are even born!
The side of the arm has a musical note, so anyone who sees it in the nursery will instantly recognize that it is musical.
I love that the bear stimulates curiosity for babies, or soothes them to sleep when they're tired. I also appreciate that Ludwig (and Amadeus) can be used to inspire a love of classical music for older children. Not only does the bear have the pre-programmed music box, but printed inside the hidden pocket where it is stored, on the material itself, is a first-person note 'from Ludwig Beethoven' that explains when and where he was born, and how he developed a love of musical composition. It's very sweet and has inspired my older son to take to YouTube to discover even more of the songs that were created by the famous composer. How sweet to see him playing the bear (that was sitting on his lap) in synch with the song that was playing on his iPod at the same time. :)
Little man doesn't have a birthday for quite awhile yet, nor is there another special holiday coming up soon, but I'm thinking of getting Amadeus so we have both of the Virtuoso Bears. I may put it away, or give it to him at the end of basketball season (as a prize for making the playoffs, which I am sure they are going to do yet again this season). My heart though, tells me to encourage you to consider this for any expectant parent. This is exactly the kind of gift moms love to receive at baby showers. It is unique, useful and sure to be a favorite of the little one when he or she arrives, plus it is something parents can use to interact and feel connected with their baby before birth. I know my children all responded to music when they were still in the womb, most especially true if it was classical music that I was playing. I highly recommend the Virtuoso Bears. I think they are absolutely perfect in every way, one of the best products I have come across in years. My son is in love with his, as am I.
