    Hi, my sun got a plastic teddy bear that plays music. I not only dislike the fact its plastic and ugly but the music that it plays sound so computery. The sad thing is that he really like the toy and the comfort of music when he goes to sleep, sits in the pram or car. So now im looking for something more eco friendly and that plays some nice tunes. Any suggestions would be really appreciated. Thanks
