Bring the Nutcracker Story to Life…

Nutcracker Teddie from Cuddle Barn helps bring the classic Nutcracker holiday story to life... I’ve always been intrigued by nutcrackers. My mom has collected them for years, and displays them all together at the holidays. When I was a little girl, I remember how magical they seemed, the way you could move the lever on the back to make them “talk,” how majestic they always looked, in their suits adorned with buttons and glitz. Then, when I saw the Nutcracker ballet for the first time – it really brought all of that magic to life for me. I would dream of our nutcrackers coming to life too, and dancing around the house while I slept. And now, my little girl {3 years old} has fallen in love with the magic of nutcrackers too… Grandma just put them out on our shelves this week, and she can’t keep her hands off of them! So, it was perfect timing to pull out a super fun new toy for the holidays – the Nutcracker Teddie.

Nutcracker Teddie from Cuddle Barn

How cute is he, right? Like all of the other Cuddle Barn toys we’ve had in the past, he’s incredibly well made. The fabric is so soft and plush, the details on the jacket and hat are excellent, and he’s sturdy enough to hold up to years of Christmas story-telling time with Abby. But he’s not just a pretty face – check him out in action…

The Nutcracker Story Comes to Life

He reads the whole Nutcracker story to your little one, plus plays a great selection of music from the ballet. There’s almost four full minutes of stories and music with just one push of the button on his fuzzy-wuzzy foot. You can see the whole performance here – Nutcracker Teddie story time. I seriously love it. Abby loves having someone read stories to her, and has been snuggling up in the big recliner with this guy, and is totally captivated listening as he brings the story to life. Priceless.

A few other personal faves of mine include the Talking Tom – a super cute cat that repeats back everything you say, in a funny voice. I’ve listened to Abby fight with him a few times, lol – Abby: “That’s my daddy.” Talking Tom: “That’s MY daddy.” Abby: “No, it’s MY daddy!” “Talking Tom: “No, it’s MY daddy!!” and on and on. Cracks me up. She also loves to “teach him” to sing songs with her. And Grandma Cookie is on my list this year – Abby loves baking in the kitchen with her grandma, and I think she’d get a kick out of this grandma bear teaching you her favorite recipe.
