We live in the world of the Jetsons. I remember as a kid I thought it would be SO cool to be able to talk on the phone and actually see the other person. Well, now we do that without even thinking twice. And our kids are going to grow up never having known a day when we couldn’t do this. We can also log into an app on our phones and check out our sleeping baby in her nursery. Being away from our kids is simply not what it used to be.
Enter Toymail—an absolutely adorable (and genius) new device that lets you send messages to your kids’ toy via an app on your phone. Each little character has a name and an identity (read their funny descriptions!) and on the back of these aptly shaped animals (note they are shaped like a blue, curbside mailbox), there is a play button and a record button. Once you record a message to your kid, the device will alert him that there’s a message waiting. After he plays it, he can record a message back to you.
So you know when you have that urge to call your daughter from work, and you call your babysitter and have a usually unfulfilling conversation? Well with Toymail you can just send a message, with your smoochy sounds and goofy voices, and then hope one comes back to you.
I’m not sure who will love this toy more…you or your child!
