A Fijit Friend is an interactive best friend that chats with you – she recognises over 30 keywords and responds with over 150 phrases! She also loves to dance with you – play any music and she grooves to the beat with her hilariously fidgety body! She is squishy soft, oh-so huggable and is eager to make you laugh out loud!
Serafina is a little lady who has the biggest heart, loves to talk and wants to hear everything you have to say. She adores all things girly: fashion, make-up, jewelry, and going to the mall!
I’ll be honest with you and say I had never heard of a Fijit Friend until I opened my toyologist box last Friday! My first impression is that it is really cute! It is all soft & squidgy a bit like the texture of a stress ball; I really adore that about it! To be quite honest that is all I love about it; I find it hard to understand, annoying, repetitive, rather expensive & I had a pretty hard task trying to get it to stop telling daft jokes!
Having said that Boo loves it! She has played with it constantly since she got it & has a tough time getting Bugs to keep his hands off it too! They both seem to be addicted to the thing & all I want to do is take its batteries out ! Boo seems to understand it fine and get’s it to react to alsorts – I guess you have to be a 6 yr old to enjoy it!
Here’s a little video I made… So you can see for yourselves how hilarious it is 😉
Serafina has several different modes –
“Chat with Me” Mode
You have to say “Chat with me” to enter the chat mode, Serafina will ask 1 of 3 types of questions; general, weather or feelings. The idea is that you chat naturally to your Fijit friend and you are likely to hit upon words that she recognises, although there is a cheat sheet to help you along.
“Tell Me a Joke” Mode
Again you need to say “Tell me a joke” to enter this mode, Serafina tells 2-liner jokes and knock-knock jokes. I found it hard to switch from this mode to another one; she seemed to want to keep telling jokes.
“Dance with Me” Mode
Serafina loves to dance and will dance to her music and yours!
“Good Night” Mode
My favourite mode 😉 She looks so adorable as she starts snoring and falls off to sleep!
I have been a little harsh on this toy, I don’t like it personally but the kids love it so I guess that makes it a pretty good toy 😉
We were sent the Fijit Friend to review as part of the ToyRus Toyologist programme. You can purchase Serafina for £54.99 although she is reduced by £10.00 so currently is £44.99
