Arthur – a teddy bear made for music

Arthur is a rather special therapeutic bear designed to offer comfort, pleasure and sensory stimulation. This irresistibly soft and tactile ted has multiple benefits for people with dementia. In fact, there’s no other product on the market like him. Arthur is unique.

Arthur is a music player. He has an inbuilt MP3 player which can store more than 1000 favourite songs. The songs are easy to upload (watch the video below) and the mechanism is hidden from view. The person you care about simply has to press Arthur’s paw for their personalised playlist to begin. (Make sure the songs you upload are special to them and mean something). The amazing benefits of music for people with memory loss and dementia are widely recognised. Many find it can help them to relax, improve their mood, boost confidence, ease anxiety and spark happy memories and conversations.

But that's not all

Arthur is also a cuddle therapist. Arthur is comforting and soft and has been carefully designed with a reassuringly weighted bottom to make the cuddle experience more satisfying. The benefits of cuddle therapy (sometimes called doll therapy) are also widely recognised in dementia care. Cuddle therapy can bring great joy to people living with dementia, enabling them to feel safe, express love and care and unlock strong maternal or paternal instincts (men like to cuddle too!). Cuddle therapy also provides meaning and purpose and can boost self-worth, even in the later stages of dementia.

Arthur is very easy to operate

Just press his paw and the music will start. Press it again when you want it to stop. The music has an automatic ‘shuffle mode’ which ensures your playlist won’t always start from the same place.

Music format: MP3, MPEG4, WMA, WAV, AAC files

Arthur is very safe

He has no buttons, zips or sharp bits and can also be of benefit to people with learning difficulties, autism and those with other cognitive challenges.

How to care for your bear

If he’s looking a bit grubby, vacuuming on a low setting.

If he’s starting to smell (he is a bear after all) put him in a plastic bag with half a cup of baking soda. Seal the bag and shake it well. Take him out and wipe him down with a dry cloth, toothbrush, or vacuum.

If he needs a proper wash, DON’T put him in the washing machine or throw him in a bowl of water. Instead, put some liquid soap and warm water in a bowl then rub the soap bubbles into his fur. Or put the soapy water in a hand spray bottle and spray on the dirty area. Leave a while then wipe down with a damp cloth.
