Technology, my friends, its getting so cool in so many ways. Today I've got a brand new toy to tell you about that is seriously fun and innovative. CloudPets™ are new stuffed toys that combine messaging technology with a stuffed animal so that your child, or the owner of the pet, receives messages through the stuffed toy. Whenever there is a new message a little blinking red light illuminates the heart of the toy and all the owner has to do is press the paw and hear the new message. My kids think it is so fun, the best part about the messaging pet is that anyone from anywhere can send a message to the animal after they download the CloudPets™app.
We purchased the CloudPets™Puppy at Walmart from the special pallet display at the front of the store along with the 3 AA batteries needed for the pet to function. There is also a Bear, Bunny, Unicorn & Kitty.
My kids thought it was so fun to hear different messages coming from their Puppy, especially from family members who live far away. We don't have any family near us so this is so fun for them to be surprised with new little messages from grandma & grandpa. In the video below you can see them getting a fun message from their nana.
To get an in-depth look at how it works click over HERE, everyone who wants to send a message to your child's toy needs to download the CloudPets™app and then receive an invite from you to message their toy. The invite will come to their app and you authorize who is allowed to send your child's pet messages from your app. As you can tell its completely parent controlled as to who can send your child a message on their toy. Its amazing what technology can do!
Matt sent the kids a message right after he tucked them into bed and they loved getting the message and listening to it while falling asleep. From the app that you set the pet up on you can see all the messages that have ever been sent to the pet and re-send older messages if you wish. The pet only plays one message at a time depending on which one has most recently been sent unless otherwise indicated in your app.
My daughter especially loves stuffed animals, she always has to sleep with one or two, which I'm told is a total typical girl thing. Its been surprising how much my 4 1/2 yr old son loves this toy too, he loves to find out who the new message is from when the heart is blinking, and he loves to replay funny messages that his dad leaves.
We love to hear messages from our far away family on our CloudPets™puppy, how would you use a CloudPet? Let me know in the comments!
