Fall 2010 Toys
Ages: 4 - 9 yrs.
Manufacturer: Arete LLC
Price: $75.00

Zylie the Bear is an adorable, fashionable bear. It has soft brown fur and is the size of a standard doll. Our testers played with it as if it were a teddy bear version of an American Girl doll. They loved the accessories that came with it, especially the purse and passport. The bear is easy to dress and has many accessories, giving it long term play appeal. It comes with a cute white coat, jeans and a flower blouse, and it fits in other standard sized doll clothes. In addition to the purse and passport, it also comes with a journal, a world map, and a short chapter book about Zylie. The map included with Zylie fosters a sense of adventure in young children. The bear is well made and the arms and legs are easy to manipulate. Children who like to play with dolls or stuffed animals will also enjoy the Zylie bear.
