BooBuddy, the Interactive Ghost Hunting Bear
The talking bear every investigator wants on their team.
It may steal your heart like the others do, but BooBuddy is not your average teddy bear! In fact, that adorable face is only half as endearing as the collaborative spirit that BooBuddy boasts.
Referred to by some as Boo Bear, this sophisticated device is more than just a stuffed animal with a cute name and an EMF meter inside. This talking interactive bear can ask questions and reacts to the changing environment. Soon, you’ll be deputizing the cutie as an official investigator bear on your ghost hunting team.
BooBuddy: Stuffed Animal or Paranormal Investigator?
What does this ghost bear bring to the team?
- BooBuddy Talks!
- Asks Electronic Voice Phenomena (EVP) Questions
- Uses Many Sensors to Detect Environmental Changes
- Interacts to Responses
- Speaks to Indicate Changes
- Sensors Detect Spikes in:
- Electromagnetic Frequencies (EMF)
- Its Position
- All with the Cutest Voice this side of the Supernatural!
BooBuddy is not a toy. BooBuddy is a Ghost Hunter!
Children may love it, but this is definitely not a toy. This boo bear’s mission is to investigate the paranormal with us, by promoting positive responses and informing us when the environment changes.
BooBuddy asks EVP questions in order to trigger a response. If there’s an effect (EMF, motion, temperature) BooBuddy will respond appropriately — with flashing lights or an adorable voice — indicating that we may not be alone.
Just set BooBuddy down and turn it on to detect environmental changes and start the interview process. Make sure to set a voice recorder or camcorder near the doll to document any potential responses.
- BooBuddy is a cute, interactive ghost hunting bear
- Detects EMF and responds with lights in the arms when spikes arise
- Detects movement, vibration and temperature and responds with voice
- Conducts baseline readings in the room when you turn the unit on (first 30 seconds)
- Asks a series of EVP questions so you can watch for potential responses or leave it in a room on its own
- All electronics are completely hidden from view within the bear
A Bear with Real Tools for the Job.
There are some ‘toys’ out on the market that are not much more than a K2 meter or REM Pod sewn inside. They’ll sometimes be referred to as a Rem bear or EMF bear.
BooBuddy Junior, the first version of our bear, built for this purpose but far less influenced by outside interference than those bears with a K2 or Rem shoved inside. However, BooBuddy has grown up now into BooBuddy Interactive – the evolution that adds SO MUCH MORE to love.
Benefits of Recruiting BooBuddy to Your Team
When it comes to ghost hunting and paranormal investigations, some theories suggest that using an object that’s familiar and attractive to an entity may entice them to interact. Teddy bears have been a popular toy for over a century, they’re disarming and inviting, and the BooBuddy interactive bear is packed with features that are vital for any investigation.
Whether you choose ghost hunting bear or opt to recruit another human ghost hunter, you’ll need someone on your team that tracks data and completes critical tasks like:
- Baseline Readings before Investigation is Fully Underway
- Electromagnetic Frequencies (EMF)
- Movement (Particularly in Response to Investigators’ Actions)
- Vibration (Particularly in Response to Investigators’ Actions)
- Conducting an Interview to Trigger Electronic Voice Phenomena (EVP)
It’s BooBuddy, not Boo Bear.
While some people call this ‘boo bear’, most give it their own name. Give the bear a name and make it part of your team. We’ve heard some clever names like Beary Potter and Bubba Bear to Gangster Boo, coined by the boys on Discovery+ Ghost Brothers TV show.
BooBuddy Recently Received Some Upgrades
Eventually, everybody has to grow up. From our older model, BooBuddy Junior, to the grown-up version you know and love today, we never stop improving the designs of our ghost hunting equipment.
To that end, these are the newest feature updates for BooBuddy:
Volume Control for when BooBuddy gets Too Excited
We’ve added an optional volume control. With one knob, you can click on BooBuddy and turn to adjust the volume as you wish.
Turning it all the way down will mute all speech.
Extended Battery Life of Over 35 Hours & USB Rechargeable Battery
In order to save batteries, we’ve made our boo bear rechargeable via USB. With a battery life of over 35 hours, you can go mobile, plug it into a wall outlet, or connect it to a USB battery pack for continuous use — even while charging!
When the battery is drained, just plug it into any USB outlet for a fresh start.
Louder Voice & Quicker Response Time for when BooBuddy gets Too Timid
We’ve also made the speaker louder and increased the response time with touch/motion and temperature changes. Now, you’ll hear these verbal responses almost immediately.
The previous model would wait 40 seconds before providing any response, then it would make a determination about what phrase was appropriate. Now, that window is interrupted to provide an immediate response, but with a period afterwards to allow for potential EVP responses in a more timely manner.
If nothing happens, BooBuddy will revert back to a 30-second window before asking a new trigger question.
All new and built for ghost hunting, this ghost teddy bear can provide almost 40 questions and voice responses, such as:
- EVP Questions, like “Do you want to be my friend?”
- When the Bear is Moved: “Hehehe. That Tickles.”
- Temperature Decreases: “Brrrrr. It’s cold in here.”

- BooBuddy does a baseline reading as soon as you turn it on. Set BooBuddy down in a room and let it sit for 30 seconds. This initial 30 second period is when BooBuddy is detecting the baseline readings in the room so that is has something to compare to later on. PLEASE do not touch BooBuddy until the introduction, "Hi. I'm BooBuddy. What's your name?" From there, BooBuddy will be begin detecting changes.

For continuous use, you can keep the batter pack plugged into an outlet or mobile USB battery pack for extended with no battery drain.
- The first 30 seconds BooBuddy will conduct baseline environmental readings for electromagnetic energy (EMF), temperature, vibration and its own physical orientation. The paws will blink during this baseline process. For best results, find a suitable, stable location to set the bear down on in order to maintain a stable base throughout the session.
- The paws will light up when EMF changes are detected. One paw lit indicates a lower spike while both paws lit indicates a stronger spike in energy.
- BooBuddy will respond verbally to changes in motion, temp and physical orientation. Listen for related responses. The responses are relatively suggestive of the change that happened.
- After each time BooBuddy speaks it will ALWAYS wait at least 10 seconds to allow for potential EVPs to be recorded and allow for proper time to do so. (older model window waited 40 seconds)
- If no environmental changes are encountered after 30 seconds, BooBuddy will ask a question or say something to promote a positive response.

I have been using this product for over a year now. I am amazed how many responses this product has triggered. It has even triggered responses from adult spirits! If you don't have it, you're missing out!!
Excited about this for my investigations!! Very cool when it reacts
The Bear was really cool to use! it asks a bunch of questions, and let’s you know when it gets cooler or warmer
We were at the Yorktown memorial hospital in Texas and this little boobuddy help our alot. We got some extraordinary evps and movement loud noises and THIS BOOBUDDY HELPED WITH 75% OF INVESTIGATION
Iâ€™ve used this amazing piece of tech for years and have had spirits of children interact many times. Recently had an interesting anomaly where an unknown phrase came thru it. When I reached out to Ghoststop they quickly confirmed. Kudos to the Ghoststop Team! Terrific device and even better after sales customer service!
BooBuddy Interactive Bear works great. Can't wait to use it at the old tuberculosis hospital in Gooding Idaho.
I received him today and i love him. It has responded to my own touches so it shows how sensitive he is. Says he likes being tickled and holding hands. He has also lit up red now and again, i think its a reaction to energy outburst, my phone didn't effect it. Testing this bear shows it does do its job. Very sensitive with my voice also. It replies to me when i talk, so another test to show that it's very sensitive so if spirit talks im sure he will pick it up easily. He is also reunited with his boo buddy junior so can't wait for them to work together.
Love the upgraded features of this trigger object
Love the boobuddy!
I used this in several cases including child spirits, and have yet to be let down!
BooBuddy has been with our group for a short while. We love the bear, as we can leave it in a room by itself and it will ask questions, tells the temp, and notice if something touches it. This is perfect, as our group is small and allows us to cover more ground. It is the perfect tool it there are spirits of child present.
This investigator is a new addition to our team. He is pale, tough and fearless...! And I love him! Let's go Ghost Hunting!
I can't say enough about the Boo Boo Buddy. My little furry friend was enormous help at a recent ghost investigation of a house haunted by a little boy. Boo Boo and he got along famously!! he really helped to bring our little boy in spirit out and about!
Iâ€™m so glad I ordered this bear. Iâ€™ve used him a couple of times and have been pleased with the results. His interactive tools are very sensitive. He is definitely not a toy. I have already recommended this bear to others on FB.
Great responses. Was talking about music during an investigation and BooBuddy replied with the statement of : I Like Music. Mel-Meter temperature was increasing when BooBuddy said it was getting warm in here. Great investigating tool.
This bear is just too cute! I haven't been able to use him for that many investigations yet, but I'm sure he will be a great company to bring along in the future!
We have two different bears and they are awesome. We have had first time hunter carry them and they get scared when the bears talk. Love these
BooBuddy is amazing!!! I got evps right off the bat!!! I noticed both young and older evps. I will take him on future investigations. Thankful I got one and if you want to gift your ghost hunting friends get this little paranormal investigator for them. They will love you for it!!!!!!!
I've taken BooBuddy with me to several different haunted locations and every time it does get responses. The most recent place, Eureka, NV it asked what was your favorite food and a child spirit is recorded answering it. Just wow! Oh...and I've named him "Otto".
We've been contemplating purchasing BooBuddy but when we finally did we have NO regrets. He is a great asset to any team. We've used in twice in the 2 weeks since purchasing and the evidence he has gotten... let me just say he is braver then me! Totally recommend!
After purchasing boo buddy interactive bear, used it on an investigation where I placed it on a small chair while using one of my ghost stop full spectrum camcorders with the creepy hollow ir lights, it's so cool how many questions the bear asks, I placed the rt evp recorder right in front of the bear, overall build quality is exelent and battery life lasts a long time,
We've used the Boo Buddy on two investigations now. First investigation we had an arm light up red (EMF hit) during a communication session. The best though was from our residential investigation on 9/26/15. Our recorder captured the voice of a child saying, "Five", immediately after Boo Buddy said, "Count with me - one, two, three, four..." Knew it could happen, but to actually hear it happen in review is something I'll never forget! Boo Buddy is so easy to use. Worth every penny of the price!
This bear is a must in any investigators tool box. Very effective style of communication when it comes to evp sessions.. Ideal for rooms with apparent children activity. Its multi sensors are ideal in gathering evidence on any level..
This one is special because our use of the Boo Buddy was with none other than Paul Bradford at Bonnie Springs Ranch, Nevada outside of Las Vegas. During a ghost hunt just before Halloween week, we used the Boo Buddy for an EVP session. Paul demonstrated it and wow, did it deliver. The Boo Buddy went through it's routine of asking questions. We got responses to the built in EMF device, but even more when it began to ask to sing the ABC's it started, A,B,C,Dâ€¦..pausing for a response and we heard to our astonishment a disembodied little girl voice finish..E,F,G. We all heard this with our own ears and played back the recording on the EVP recorder to hear the same. Amazing! Yeah it works!!!
Having just finished a 48 Lockdown at Davidstow Airfield we had the pleasure of being accompanied by Boo Buddy on the investigation. We locked him down in a room with a locked off camera and voice recorder for company, for 2 hours. Surprisingly we seemed to capture what looks like a small child interacting with the bear during this period although haven't fully reviewed all the footage as yet. We left him running most of the weekend and was amazed to see the same 3 standard AA batteries managed to last almost 2 days non-stop. Excellent device, highly recommended!
I received one of the first batches of Boo Buddy and I absolute love him! I think he's a great tool to use on investigations! He's cute and looks friendly. I like all the different questions that he asks. I have even had balls of light shoot into him. You can check out some of the videos I've posted on our facebook page (Parker City Paranormal Society). If you haven't got one for your group I highly suggest that you get one. They are a must have!! GhostStop knocked it out of the park with this bear :)
I have bought most of our equipment from GhostStop, Shawn, Paul and there group are Amazing ! My most recent purchase was BooBuddy.. Well he has to be one of the Most Spectacular pieces yet !! I got BooBuddy for a specific investigation that has a known 3 year old Girl Spirit, Well the second I put Boo on her bed, all Boo would do was spit out all the questions relating to tempature change, touch, ect... I moved Boo to other parts of the home, only for Boo to only repeate the normal EVP questions.. Returned to the Childs bed... again it started all over again !! We have been investigating for years, and never had such Direct communication as with BooBudy for the specific need !! OH and a Big Shout out to Paul Bradford, he was there for me immediately through Twitter to answer all my questions about Boo on our way to the investigation !!! What a Great Night.. Hats off to our New Crew member "Mr BooBuddy"
I used the Boo Buddy on an Home Session and It is Awesome the Boo Buddy Does its Job Its well worth the Buy that's for Sure I will be doing more Investigations with the Bear Soon I have a local Cemetery that is Just perfect for the Boo Buddy and I'll Also use it on Calls to Investigate a home too
