When the folks at Bluebee Pals asked if I might be interested in reviewing one of their adorable Bluebee Pals, I said “sure” thinking that it would be a cute little distraction for my kids but probably just a novelty item. You know, just a toy.
So, imagine my delight upon receiving Leo the Lion on my doorstep. I opened the box to find a large, plush lion (this guy is 13” tall) of excellent quality. As just a stuffed animal, he’s really top notch. But the thing is, he’s not just a stuffed animal. Leo is also a pretty sweet little piece of technology. Starting off, I have to admit that my imagination was pretty limited about what I could do with this Bluebee Pal. I thought “Oh, a stuffed animal with a Bluetooth speaker. Mmmkay.” OK, yes, Leo is a stuffed lion with a Bluetooth speaker, but he’s much more than that.
