Having a girl we find out about all the raging girl toys, the one that was most wanted at Christmas last year was the Fijit Friends. I was not really sure what they were (I know bad mommy). Now I understand the rage and wish we would have got them sooner because Holden and Maddisyn both adore the new Fijit Friend they got to go along with the Fijit Friend Newbies we received for this campaign.
The Fijit Friend is the one in the middle and the Fijit Friend Newbies are on the outside. Don’t be fooled by the size in the picture the Fijit Friend Newbies are cute and tiny little guys. They love to interact with each other and with the Fijit Friend. When you put the two little newbies together they perform a cute little duet each singing different parts of the same song. While I can handle this once or twice after a while like any other toy it grates on my nerves but my kids absolutely LOVE it. The newbies are supposed to interact with the big guy Fijijt friend and get him to dance with a special technology but no matter how much we tried we simply couldn’t make it happen.
All in all Holden and Maddy love playing with their Fijit Friend Newbies despite the fact that we cannot get them to interact with the Fijit friend they interact with each other and that is important for Maddisyn and Holden to be able to play together.
I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Mattel and received two Fijit Friends Newbies to facilitate my review.
