Holiday Gift for Tween Girls
Every year at Christmas, there are a few toys that a child absolutely “has to have.” And for tween girls in 2011, that toy is a Fijit Friend from Mattel! Fijit Friends are guaranteed to become your child’s new interactive best friend and are the undisputed must-have of the holiday season.
So what are Fijit Friends? They’re the latest chatty, laughing, dancing BFF for tween girls everywhere! There are four Fijit Friends to choose from and every one has her own unique personality. There’s the trendsetter Willa, adventurous Sage, sweetheart Serafina and sporty Logan. No matter what your daughter’s favourite hobby is, there’s a Fijit Friend that loves the same thing!
Fiji Friends really are interactive. They respond to over thirty different key phrases, which are included on a handy “cheat sheet” in the box. When the Fijit Friend’s belly glows, you can use the key phrases to interact with your new friend.
There are three main settings for the friends: jokes, chatting and dancing. My favourite mode was definitely the “Dance With Me” mode. Not only do the Fijit Friends come pre-programmed with their own song and dance routines, they also are able to detect the beat of your own music so that they can dance along!
We received the sporty darling Logan to review, and she was the perfect fit with our active, tech-loving household. I loved the way that she could recognize a key phrase in a sentence. There was no need to speak using single words. Instead, we could talk normally and just make sure to insert the appropriate key word into our sentence to have her respond!
Fijit Friends are designed to be a little unpredictable, which is part of the reason the toys are so appealing! To get an unexpected response from a Fijit Friend, you just need to press her belly. Or log onto www.fijitfriends.com, press and hold the button on the back right-hand side of the Fijit Friend’s head and visit the Sonic Chirps portion of the website to get a wild and surprising reaction from your special Fijit Friend!
Fijit Friends are available at major retailers across North America and can also be purchased online from various retailers. So check out the collection for yourself and choose a Fijit Friend to become your child’s very own BFF!
