Recently, we were given the opportunity to ask several of our girl friends over to have a super fun girly glamor get-together to introduce them to the brand new Fijit Friends from Mattel.
Your child will find a new friend in an interactive, electronic toy that can talk, dance, and laugh along with them. This new generation children's toy not only entertains but can actually engage and interact with our kids on a whole new level. Fijit Friends have colorful and soft skin that enable lifelike movements and they can perform fun dance moves, recognize spoken emotions and react appropriately, joining in on the fun or telling a joke when you are sad. Fijit Friends come in four different color variations, each with a unique personality.
So we invited our girlfriends to come over for cupcakes, nail painting, and dress up, and with the horrible weather, were rained out. We didn't let that discourage us, so we rescheduled it for a few weekends later, and before I knew it the house was full of a bunch of 5-9 year old girls.
We were sent two adorable Fijit Friends, Sage and Willa, some great party favors, headbands and a camera to record some fun moments of our par-tay! The kids loved both of the characters, and the fact that they interacted with each of them, telling jokes that made them roar with laughter, but the part they loved the most was that it danced, just like them to their favorite beats! The mommies thought that it was super cute when the kids told their new friends, "goodnight", and the little Fijit Friend leaned over, yawned and started snoring!
The kids played with the Fijit Friends for quite awhile, and many of the moms insisted that this toy will definitely become one of the MUST HAVE toys for the 2011 holiday season... I think they're right! This toy is geared for girls about 6-9, but I will tell you the few brothers that were dragged along with their sisters confiscated the green Fijit Friend (Sage) and were caught playing in the room with it after their laughter exploded from a joke Sage shared with them. The boys thought the lights on the Fijit Friends face and belly was super cool. Most of the kids liked the silicone skin, only one thought it felt weird, but all of the feedback we got was great.
The Fijit Friends retail for approximately $49.99 each. They come in four different colors- blue, green, pink, and purple, all with different names. Although they come with batteries, but I would advise you to buy extra ones because the factory batteries died very quickly. Even now that the party is over, my little lady plays with it almost every day- and often has to hide her from her brother!!
We cannot thank our friends at Mattel and Mom Central Consulting for allowing us to participate in this awesome campaign.
