Yet another from this wonderful company, Gund Peek-A-Boo makes it to the 8th spot among the best teddy bears for 2016-2017.

Another treasured classic from Gund. This sweet teddy bear is unique and interactive, reciting six adorable phrases, like “I love you.” Plus, he plays a game of peek-a-boo with an attached, satin-ringed blanket. I’m lovin’ his big, brown, expressive eyes.

9. Melissa & Doug K’s Kids Teddy Wear Plush

28 new from $14.924 used from $16.39

Ages: 1 1/2 and up

I love this one! Melissa & Doug K’s Kids Teddy Wear holds a spot on the list as well.

What is early development? For babies, it’s a toy that teaches them to not only use their imagination, but improve upon their senses with stimulation. For example, this teddy is plush with satin ears and paws, and a zippered outfit. Texture, color, and design make a big difference in development.
