Bear games

Hug the teddy to control the videogame.

Lindsay Grace got tired of seeing videogames for children that featured lots of guns and violence. So she dreamed up an alternative – a videogame that uses a 30-inch stuffed bear as a controller called Bear Huggin’. Squeezing the teddy lets you control the action on the screen. Grace is currently raising cash to produce more versions of the game for children’s hospitals and other places a “hug is valued.”
