Teddy Ruxpin is an animatronic children's toy in the form of a talking 'Illiop', a creature which looks like a bear. The toy's mouth and eyes move while he reenacts stories played on an audio tape cassette deck built into its back. It was created by Ken Forsse with later assistance by Larry Larsen and John Davies, and the first version of the toy was designed by the firm RKS Design. Later versions used a digital cartridge in place of a cassette. At the peak of its popularity, Teddy Ruxpin became the best-selling toy of 1985 and 1986, and the 2006 version was awarded the 2006 Animated Interactive Plush Toy of the Year award by Creative Child Magazine. A cartoon based on the characters debuted in 1986.
In 2018, it was announced that Alchemy and The Jim Henson Company would make a new Teddy Ruxpin TV series. The series would be animated in a digital puppetry form and would be aimed at preschoolers. In 2019, it was announced that The Jim Henson Company would be distributing the series under the Henson Independent Properties banner.
Conventional Compact Cassette carried two audio tracks for stereo sound reproduction. Teddy Ruxpin cassettes used the right track for audio and the left track for a control data stream. The data stream controlled servomotors that moved the eyes and mouth and could also divert the audio signal to Grubby, the companion toy, by means of a proprietary cable. This allowed the two to engage in pre-recorded interactions. Grubby only worked with the initial WOW release of Teddy Ruxpin.
If a conventional audio cassette was played in Teddy Ruxpin, this would be detected and its left audio track would be ignored. Early versions of the toy used three servo motors, but this was reduced to two and even one in later versions.
