My sister and I had Bingo the Bear. Bingo wore a yellow necktie with his name on it in red. He also used to speak and he was really lovely.
When he was released Bingo Bear went head to head against Teddy Ruxpin, with the appeal being that he didn't just play 'taped' conversations, but actually responded to real chat.
Bingo Bear had quite a large collection of phrases including: "Can I ask you a question?" "You're so smart" "Are you famous?" "Do you live here?" "Do you love me?" "Why don't you have paws like me?" "Oh yeah? What else?" "Would you like to live in the forest?" "That's not what the bears say" "Are your knees made of cheese?"
He was quite an inquisitive little bear, although not always the brightest of the bunch.
