HOUSTON – Okay all you 80s babies – do you remember the Teddy Ruxpin? A new interactive teddy is on the way, and a cassette tape is not required.

A British entrepreneur is raising money online to release and produce what he says is the world's first truly interactive talking teddy bear. "Supertoy Teddy" is now on display in London.

In video posted online, the toy's maker shows off how the bear can read stories, play songs, and even answer questions. Think of it as Siri for kids.

The teddy itself is said to be light and fluffy.

It’s expected to go on sale in November for about $60.
