Make Bedtime The Best Time With A New Best Friend

My 6 year old loves his stuffed animals. They become part of the family. His animal stash has become so massive, we had to start putting some away just because he would get lost in them at night. Yes, he tries to sleep with every single one of them at night. But, I love that he has so much passion and love for animals, even if they are stuffed. I am not sure when his pet obsession started, mostly for puppies, but each day it grows stronger and stronger and I do what I can to encourage his love for all animals. When we saw the commercial on TV for CloudPets™, I knew it was something we had to have. Who wouldn't want a talking stuffed animal?!?! 
We headed to Wal-Mart and found the large display of these awesome toys! There were puppies, cats, bears, a bunny, and even a unicorn. Just make sure you grab some extra batteries while your there. They are not included and 3 AA batteries are needed to make your CloudPets™ talk and interact with you.

I think we have found a new best friend! We of course grabbed the puppy CloudPets™ and he's perfect! Big and soft and plush with big floppy ears, and just the cutest puppy ever! He will fit right in with the rest of our plush pals. We had to name him right away and Blake knew exactly what to name him, Pickles! Yes, Pickles. He was proud of the name and I think it's perfect and it matches the puppies green eyes. 

At the time, Blake didn't know that our CloudPets™, aka Pickles, could actually talk to you and interact with you. I wanted that to be a surprise. So, without him knowing I downloaded the free parental controls app from my iTunes App store to my iPhone and our iPad. As an added surprise, I had their grandparents download the app from the Android market as well. I knew he would love this!!! He doesn't get to see his grandparents very often and this would be just an awesome surprise.

After I downloaded the app and connected his puppy Pickles to all our devices, I let him discover the fun interactive app on his iPad. There are games, story time, lullabies, and of course the option to record a personal message as well as send a reply. He was head over heels being able to see his puppy come to life before his eyes. You to can check out how it works here.

The heart on his chest started blinking and Blake wasn't sure what that meant. So, I explained to him that whenever his heart blinked he had something to say to him. So, we squeezed his paw and Pickles talked, in the voice of his grandma! How exciting was this!! He was thrilled and couldn't believe that grandma was talking to him through his puppy!!! This was surly his new best friend! 

Pickles now takes the prime spot on his bed at night. He always checks to see if his heart is blinking to see if he has a message from grandma. But, mommy had a surprise for him too! I leave him a sweet little message, as Pickles, each night before he goes to bed. He loves it especially since he is a little scared of the dark, I think he feels a little safer that now he is not alone.

Which is your favorite CloudPets™ animal? 
 I would love to hear what you named your CloudPets™ and how you kids interact with them.
