Teddy Tank Review & Giveaway

Teddy Tank is such a unique toy that I feel fortunate to have discovered. This particular toy does so many things; it serves as a fish tank for Betta fish, a night light, a plush toy your child can dress, and a friend that will talk to your child. This great toy has been featured on Good Morning America. Teddy Tank offers excellent customer service; not only does each Teddy Tank come with thorough printed instructions you can also visit the Teddy Tank website or view the YouTube video they created to walk you through how to set up your Teddy Tank and maintain it. Discovering unique products that are great is one of the joys of blogging for me and Teddy Tank is one of my favorite finds.

You can select from the following options for your Teddy Tank; bear, pig (pictured), monkey, frog, elephant, giraffe, panda, lion, and dog. If you go HERE you can see all of these cute plush animals that Teddy Tank offers. With such a wide selection you are sure to find a Teddy Tank that your special little guy or girl will love! You can also choose from several colors of acrylic gravel and bows to really personalize a Teddy Tank  for your little one.

When I was offered the opportunity to review a Teddy Tank I let my three year old Josh decide which one he would like. As you can probably guess by the picture above he loves pigs and that's the one he selected. Our Teddy Tank arrived in a nice box and everything we needed to set it up was included: fish bowl, plush animal, colored rocks, plant, batteries, and fish net. All we had to add was water and fish! When Josh's Teddy Tank arrived we had to immediately go to Wal Mart and buy a goldfish for it. The Teddy Tank is designed to be a Betta fish tank/aquarium, however the closest pet store that sells Betta fish in my area is 60 miles away so a goldfish was our only option. I would like to note that Mr. Goldfish is thriving and very happy after three weeks living inside Josh's Teddy Tank. Here is Josh's Teddy Tank lit up as a night light, if you look closely you can see Mr. Goldfish:

Josh absolutely loves his pig Teddy Tank! He spends a lot of time turning the light on and off and looking for Mr. Goldfish and his sidekick Mr. Snail who keeps things tidy for Mr. Goldfish. I think Josh's favorite feature is the voice recorder, he loves to sing and will record the latest song he has learned and play it back for Mr. Goldfish and our family beagle Nelly.

The Teddy Tank is super easy to set up, you insert the bowl in the plush animal then you add your acrylic gravel, plant, water and fish. In the back of the head is the light mechanism which you insert two batteries in then you place the head over the neck of the water bowl and you are all set up. Teddy Tank is such a versatile and unique toy that I am just so pleased to share with my readers.

Teddy Tanks are made from high quality materials and very well constructed. I especially love the details that go in to them. Take a look at the embroidery on the little pigs foot here:

You can also use the Teddy Tank as a voice recorder, you simply press the ear marked "record" and talk.

And to hear your voice play back you press the ear marked "Play"
Josh loves to leave his Teddy Tank lit up at night as a night light and he has a lot of fun changing the velcro bows too!

You can order a premium eight piece package from Teddy Tank for $39.99 which includes an 18" plush animal body, 10 second voice recorder, one gallon plastic bowl, LED nightlight w/AAA batteries, acrylic gravel, teddy tank bow, fish net, and decorative plant. And you can order a separate plush animal body with voice recorder for $19.99 so your child can have more than one Teddy Tank friend! A Teddy Tank would make a great surprise gift or birthday gift for the little ones in your life and with Christmas only a few months away this is definitely an item to put on your gift list. Teddy Tanks can be purchased online at the company website or from select stores nationwide, visit Teddy Tank to order or locate a store near you.

  8. Just does air get into the tank for the fish to breathe?

    1. I don't really care for people who leave anonymous comments but I will answer you anyways. The Teddy Tank has an opening in the back and in its mouth for air to get into the tank for the fish to breathe. The goldfish my son has has been content for over a month in the Teddy Tank.

  9. great idea-- ignore the negatives-- thank you for the giveaway!

  10. I dont care what anyone says, this is a cute prize ;)
