Engadget takes a look at the revamped Teddy Ruxpin and the different features added to bring the famous '80s doll into the 21st century. Among the notable changes are the way Teddy Ruxpin reads stories to children. Instead of using cassette tapes and books, children can follow along with the stories using an iOS or Android app. The app can connect to the doll using Bluetooth, but is not required for children to use the toy. For parents to get more stories for the Teddy Ruxpin, they will need to plug the doll into their computer via USB, and then download them from the website. Privacy concerns about internet-connected dolls have made headlines in recent weeks.
