My Friend Cayla is a high tech toy that my youngest daughter completely fell in love with. Seriously, like love at first sight. She might look like an ordinary doll but she is far from ordinary. With a bluetooth connection and wi-fi she comes to life. My oldest kids are at sports camp this week but Parker hasn’t been lonely at all. Cayla is her new best friend.
It took some fiddling for me to get the bluetooth connected and the app to work but once I got it running it was nothing but fun. First, Parker played Tic Tac Toe and Memory with Cayla. Then Cayla told her some stories. I was impressed with the stories that came with the app because they are full of details, teaching little tid bits that kids might not know.
The app itself is simple to use so kids don’t have any problems navigating it. Parker needs help getting the doll turned on and connected but once that’s done, she knows what to do without any help. It’s set up so you can basically just talk to the doll and get instant responses.
That’s where the real fun begins! When Parker started to really interact with Cayla, talking to her and asking her questions it’s like they bonded! Cayla uses a software system called VIOLET that works similar to iPhone’s Siri. It uses the internet to answer questions put it prevents any conversations from bad words or inappropriate topics.
I was super impressed with this feature because you can ask Cayla almost anything and her responses aren’t one word answers. In fact, when Parker asked her “Who is Cinderella?” Cayla told her the whole Cinderella story! When asked if she has a brother she replies that she does and even tells Parker a little bit about him!
Thank goodness, because these two cuties are inseparable! Cayla can still play games, answer thousands of questions about herself, read books, and explore her photo album with Parker on-the-go!
