This is the BooBuddy Ghost Hunting Interactive Bear, a $200 talking teddy bear that's supposed to alert you to paranormal activity. But why is it a teddy bear? Presumably so it doesn't scare away the ghosts. I ain't afraid of no ghosts! "Is that true, GW?" No, they're the only thing I'm afraid of.
BooBuddy is not just an EMF (electromagnetic field) bear but an interactive investigator that asks smart questions and reacts to changes in the environment just like a real investigator would.
BooBuddy's investigates the paranormal with you promoting positive response as well as letting us know when the environment changes. BooBuddy loves asking EVP (electronic voice phenomenon) questions in order to promote a response. If the environment changes (EMF, temperature or motion) BooBuddy responds appropriately, to let you know that there may be a presence. Just sit BooBuddy down and turn it on to get to work. BooBuddy will do the rest starting with baseline readings. For best results and documentation set a recorder or cam by the bear to document any responses.
Kids will love it, but this is NOT a toy. Some theories suggest that using a trigger object familiar and attractive to an entity may entice them to interact. BooBuddy does that and so much MORE!
Unfortunately, I don't have $200 to spend on a ghost hunting teddy bear so I had to hack my existing Teddy Ruxpin into one. "You taped a magnet and microphone to his paws." Shhhhh, I think he's picking up on something! "Well?!" False alarm, somebody flushing a toilet in the men's room. It does smell like there was a recent death in there though.
Keep going for one more shot and a video.
Thanks to Josh H, who agrees the best paranormal activity detectors are dogs and cats.
