Eine Kleine Bear Musik


[caption id="attachment_17593" align="alignright" width="200" caption="Symphony Bear"][/caption] [IF YOU WANT TO KEEP THIS I'LL FIND A PICTURE FOR IT] If you're troubled by the commercial aspects of the season, but still want to get a little one a gift, it's hard to go wrong with a teddy bear.  Uninspired?  Boring?  Not if you ask the St. Louis Symphony.  Now you can have your bear and Mozart, too. The St. Louis Symphony has teamed with the folks at Build-a-Bear for some cuddly culture...a teddy bear which, when you squeeze it's left paw, plays Mozart's Eine kleine Nachtmusik.  No assembly required...no moving parts...and nothing that's going to be obsolete by December 26th. It even comes in a pair of denim jeans and a symphony t-shirt. Yes, the kids are going to want other things, but in the midst of the maelstrom, there'll be an island of sanity.  You'll rest well knowing that little Bobby or Susie drift off to sleep each night with Wolfgang. Then if things get too bad, YOU can take the bear and find a quiet corner for yourself for a few minutes. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qb_jQBgzU-I
