(Please Don't Let Me Be Your) Teddy Bear

This ghost-detecting teddy bear takes ghost hunting industry to new depths.
Know a small child that you really, really hate? Want to psychologically scar them for life? Well now you can, with BooBuddy the ghost-detecting teddy bear.

BooBuddy looks like a normal bear, but he can detect motion, sounds, and changes in electro-magnetic fields and temperature. And when he does, lights in his paws and tummy start flashing and he starts talking to the ghost.

As the BooBuddy website tells us, "Kids will love it, but this is NOT a toy". As though there's absolutely no chance a child will ever end up with one of these singing, flashing teddy bears in their bedroom.

This ghost-detecting teddy bear takes ghost hunting industry to new depths.
Clearly not a toy.

Imagine a child sleeping peacefully in their room being suddenly awoken by BooBuddy, whose stomach is flashing bright green and his paws are red. BooBuddy then starts speaking one of these phrases:
‘Did you make it cold in here?’
‘What was that, could you please say it again’
‘ha ha ha BooBuddy is ticklish’
‘Do you want to be my friend?’
‘Can you make a noise for me?’
‘Would you like to sing with me? Twinkle, Twinkle little star...’
‘Is this your house?’
‘Can you make it colder for me?’
‘What colour is the light in my tummy?’
‘What? Did you just say something? Say it again.’
BooBuddy also attempts to summon more spirits to the child's room:
‘Do you have more friends we can play with?’
This scientifical wonder will set you back a mere $100-150. Here's the promo video...
