Bumbi — The Otherworldly Squishy Photo Toy that Looks Like You, Talks Like You…

When the space invaders come, we hope they’re more Bumbi than Aliens.

Bumbi, the Swiss-made ‘never-miss-me-again’ bear may be a little strange-looking (in an adorable sort of way) but he’s smarter than the average bear.

Cut your favorite photo to fit, slide it into Bumbi’s faceplate, record a message (up to 10 seconds of audio), and Bumbi will be transformed into your smaller, fuzzier doppelganger, ready to tell your sweetie that you only have eyes for her at the press of his elongated blue arm. (We told you he was a little weird).

But this bear can do more than simply reminding your lady you wuv her. Rig your Bumbi up to…

  • Send Grandma some authentic Junior-issued goo-goos and gaa-gaas.

  • Lull Junior to sleep with a Grandma-made lullaby.

  • Break up with your crazy girlfriend from a safe distance.

  • Remind the roommates to take out the trash/wash the dishes.

Or do what we did. Embellish Bumbi with a picture of Clive Owen and record a little Barry White. That ought to take the chill out of this cold snap.
