Arthur - The Music Therapy Bear

Our Simple Musical Teddy Bear was designed specifically to meet the needs of those with Alzheimer's, Dementia and Memory Loss. The bear comes with a few classic songs pre-loaded, but the intent is for a caregiver to load their loved-one's or patient's favorite music - room for over 1,000 songs!

There is no other product like it on the market.

The Arthur Bear is appropriate as a companion for both children and adults alike as he can be loaded with favorite songs, story books, nursery rhymes, Bible verses or Hymns. It is safe for both children and adults as there are no buttons, zippers or snaps. The rechargeable battery pack is hidden within.

Arthur - a musical teddy bear combines the benefits of music for people with cognizant challenges, such as Dementia, learning difficulties and Autism, combined with the widely accepted advantages offered by 'doll therapy'. The care and interaction with a comforting soft toy provides a path to unlocking strong maternal instincts or feelings of security, providing both activity and self-worth, while also providing music to increase awareness and interaction.

Arthur is a rather special therapeutic bear designed to offer comfort, pleasure and sensory stimulation. This irresistibly soft and tactile teddy bear has multiple benefits for people with Dementia.

Key Features:

  • Combines benefits of music and doll therapy
  • Simple to use: Press the paw and the music begins
  • Capacity of 4GB, nearly 1000 songs

Arthur is a music player. He has an internal MP3 player which can store more than 1000 favorite songs. The songs are easy to upload from a computer or laptop. The person you care about simply has to press Arthur’s paw for their personalized playlist to begin. (Make sure the songs you upload are special to them and have meaning). The amazing benefits of music for people with memory loss and dementia are widely recognized. Many find it can help them to relax, boost confidence, ease anxiety and spark happy memories and conversations.

Arthur is comforting and soft and has been carefully designed with a reassuringly weighted bottom to make the experience of holding him more satisfying. The benefits of cuddle therapy (sometimes called doll therapy) are also widely recognized in Dementia Care. Cuddle therapy can bring great joy to people living with Dementia, enabling them to feel safe, express love and unlock strong maternal or paternal instincts.

Music Therapy: Playing music to people with dementia or similar challenges from their formative years vastly improves their cognizance and lucidity - the effects are dramatic and are widely recognized!

Open Box Items might be available for sale - they have been tested to work, include everything you need but they might come in unmarked/plain boxes.

Arthur - Getting Started

Arthur travels with his rechargeable battery disconnected. Before he can make music, or upload tunes make sure he has the power to do so. Just slide the tamper resistant power switch from "O" to "I"

Arthur - His Energy Levels
If Arthur starts to go quiet, its nothing personal, he just needs his batteries to be recharged. Open up his back, plug in a USB cable (provided) into his battery pack. When the red light on the pack turns green he's ready to go! To save energy he switches off after 30 minutes.

Arthur - How Loud is a Bear?
Arthur has preset volume levels. To change the volume, access his controller inside his back and there are two small push buttons with loudspeaker symbols next to them. While the music is playing you can press and hold these buttons and the volume will change so you can set a comfortable level. The volume level will be remembered.

Arthur's Favorite Tunes
The most important thing is for Arthur to have the right tunes for the person with the cognitive challenges. These tend to be songs that have special meaning from their formative years (15 - 25 years old). He has a very large memory (4GB) which can typically hold 1000-2000 tunes, but this is far more than most people need.

What Type of Files?
Arthur plays files in MP3 format only (Note: Please note that Arthur is not an Apple device so it cannot play 'Apple protected' .m4p downloads). Apple songs may need to be converted using iTunes or other conversion apps.

Loading these tunes is easy and just needs some simple steps to be followed:
1) Open the hook and loop seam on Arthur's back and gently pull out the black box
2) Plug in the USB cable connecting Arthur to your computer
3) Leave Arthur to fully charge his Li-ion 3.7V 2600mAh rechargeable battery (the red light goes green when he's ready)
4) Squeeze Arthur's left paw (The 'paws button') and the file system should pop-up on your computer
5) You can now 'drag and drop' or 'cut and paste' your chosen tunes (only MP3 format files will work)
6) Finally, squeeze Arthur's left paw again, disconnect the cable, put the box back and close the seam

Alison doesn't react to much these days, but she loves to listen to Arthur the Bear play her favorite music.  It makes her smile.

Reviewer: Terri Masters from Goshen, IN United States  
I have to keep updating the music on this for my brother, but he enjoys holding it and listening to the songs.  When he gets one he doesn't like, he throws it.  Ut oh.  ;)

5 of 5 Awesome Customer Service! January 19, 2023
Reviewer: Sherry from Las Vegas, NV United States  
I received the Arthur music therapy bear for my mom who is in an assisted living home and had so much trouble using my Mac computer to download music from iTunes. Amy in Customer Service sat with me on the phone until I was able to convert the files and achieve success. You just don't see this type of customer service anymore. What a wonderful company! Can't wait to get Arthur the musical bear to my mom. I know she's going to love the music of her younger years.
