Kudos from parents, experts, and kids (current and former!) 

“The best thing about these Teddy Bear guys is that they’re real, both figuratively and literally. They’re one of those all-too-rare breeds of live performers for little ones; not on a screen, not coming out of a speaker, but right there with kids interacting and responding to each other. The Teddy Bear Band is also spiritually alive – a real lift for both parents and kids…No contest. These folks are the consummate kids entertainers.”
—Parent Magazine
