I got one for my daughter in "87", I awoke one night to my daughter crying on the floor(her crib was in my room) and Smarty Bear was laughing. In my head I know that she fell climbing out and kicked him, which set him off, but at the time I was completely freaked out and gave Smarty bear away.

When I was a kid I got smarty bear for chistmas...about 20 minutes later, Smarty decided to sit on dad's chair and was forever broken. I was devestated and to this day will never forget that terrible christmas. I NEED to get a replacement....My daughter would love it!!

Hi, I just wanted to share my Smarty Bear story. I got mine when I was a year old he was my best friend. I still have mine, I let me twin daughters share it, which of course caused a huge fight. I am looking to buy another (hopefully for some peace and quiet). If anyone has any information on how I could get one please e-mail me at

I got my Smarty Bear the xmas I was three. He hasn't talked for years. I was trying to remember some of the things he used to say."Hmmm, that's a tough question", "What's your name?", "Hello", "Roll me over" or "Turn me over" and he laughed. "Time for a nap". I am not sure if I remembered these correctly. What do other people remember?

We still have a Smarty Bear and back in the 80s, it would continuously talk without batteries. We used to think it was possessed, but for some reason we still kept it in the house. Creeeeepy!
julia - March 12, 2012 - Report this comment
Our smarty bear constantly used to talk without batteries when we were kids. I am now 25 and just found out the he had two areas where batteries went. one controlled speech and the other controlled movement. The large D battery area that you see first controlled the movement and the aa battery area was hidden and controlled the speech. My dad literally just told me today about the battery thing. My brother and i have believed all these years that our toy was possessed. lol... they thought it was funny to freak us out. haha

I just bought a smarty bear. His eyes/brows sort of work, mouth doesn’t, but he still talks. I don’t have any directions for him and All I see is the commercial on YouTube. Is he supposed to respond to your voice, similar to Julie? Or does he just say random stuff at random time? Also is he supposed to turn himself off within a few minutes of turning him on? Is there a microphone in him? If you have answers please let me know at
