I’m sure most of you remember the oh so popular Fijit Friends that appeared in stores just in time for Christmas last year. Well, have you heard about the new Fijit Friends Newbies? If you haven’t then you definitely should keep reading to learn more about these awesome, adorable new toys!
Before Fijit Friends® talked or danced, they were once Newbies™ – pocket-sized singing Fijit Friends®! When you squeeze your Newbie™, her floppy ears fly forward and she begins to sing. You can pet and tickle your Fijit Friends® Newbie™ to reward her for her sweet tunes. The more you nurture her, the better she sings! Fijit Friends® Newbies™ can sing with each other in a duet, or you can collect them all for a truly singing sensation! Her skin is squishy and fun to squeeze! And, they even interact with your Fijit Friend®!
These adorable, pint-sized singing companions to Fijit Friends love to sing and perform their own unique song. As your child pets and interacts with the eight, distinct Newbies, their singing improves! For the ultimate performance, place two Newbies together, and with a simple touch they’ll sing a duet – each singing different parts of the same song. Newbies can also make Fijit Friends dance by utilizing Sonic Chirp technology – special audio coding embedded into a Newbie that when detected by Fijit Friends will trigger their programmed dancing moves-so it’s one big musical party for your children and all their friends!
When our Fijit Friends Newbies arrived Abby was beside herself with excitement as I tried to remove her new friends from their package. Lucky for me the Newbies are packaged well but easy to remove and here’s a quick word of advice, the tail is not attached but instead packaged behind the Fijit Friends Newbie so make sure to remove it before tossing the box in the trash! Abby is a little under the recommended age for Fijit Friends Newbies but I let her try them out with me. I have never seen my child so overjoyed with a toy before! She was truly fascinated! The Newbies make this cute, almost purring sound and when they make that sound Abby will leans forward as in to hug it and says “awww” it’s so cute! She also giggles nonstop, she is so delighted to play with these new interactive friends!
While I can’t exactly pinpoint why Abby loves the Fijit Friends Newbies, I would guess it’s because they “talk” back to her and they sing. She loves to sing and of course dance. Plus the Newbies are the perfect size to toss in her bag and take along with us. Of course, these toys are quite loud and tend to drive us a little crazy in the car but they make her happy and she’ll sit and talk to them so I just learn to tolerate the chatter 🙂
What is really neat is that the more we interact with our Newbies, the Newbies become at the songs. Plus they interact with each other and sing together in a duet and what I really love is that the Newbies will interact with the Fijit Friends! Talk about a toy that opens up so many new possibilities and can be used in so many ways!
