I have done a major new update to the app. 

Teddy can now read books, anyone of the 47,000 on Project Gutenberg.

Just say "read me <book title>

Its still very rough and a bit slow which I will improve the speed in the next few days but it works.

Imagine a child reading Cinderella before bed time :)


You need to download the new Twain app for this to work.

Its a work in progress! the software updates have just begun.

Best regards,


ps and for those who missed the gadget man Xmas TV special

We are on about 30 minutes in

We are shown about 1/2 way down the page.

Once again Many thanks Gadget Man for giving us this opportunity!

And most of all Thank You Kickstarters for making this all possible.

Merry Christmas X

      What is the name of the app. I received the toy but don't know where the app is found. I tried several title for an app on the Apple App store and couldn't find one.

      Will post an update any day as soon as I get the book reading function to work.

      Hi Ashley -
      After you recently posted an update which mentioned contacting you if our bear(s) hadn't arrived, I did so.

      Still haven't heard from you yet.

      While I'm glad to hear about the successes you're having, please do follow up with your responses. It would be appreciated. Thank you.

      All I can do is imagine my son being read a book by this bear, since we still have no bear and no IOS app.
      Is anyone else getting responses to email? I've sent two asking about shipping with no response. Not even an acknowledgment of the email. It's a good thing I haven't told him anything about this bear.

      Any updates on shipping.

      Still haven't received my Teddy..
      Any estimation?

      I've got my bear (no outfit though) and still waiting on A version for iOS. Why is Android getting updated software and iOS still has none? Has anyone here actually gotten the Android software? Does it work?
