Simple, soft, and highly interactive; those are words that describe Fijit Friends. If you don’t know what they are but you have a little girl, you’ll probably know soon enough. But why wait for her to tell you. That’s what we’re here for.
Basically these are soft and loveable characters that respond to your child depending on how she plays with them. Fijit newbies will talk, dance, move around and even light up depending on how your child plays. They’ll sing and tell jokes, again all depending on how they are played with.
For example if you’re playing music, your character will dance. Speak to them and give commands with certain phrases and they will respond. Children love interactive toys and these are certainly that.
Admittedly, they look simple. They have no arms or legs. They’re just a body, but that’s part of their charm. And they’re incredibly soft yet can move in different ways.

As for complaints, some parents say the characters don’t respond in as many different ways as claimed. That’s probably true when you first take it out of the box. The problem is with the batteries that are included. Yes this toy actually includes the batteries. Unfortunately they are bad. Remove the batteries and replace them right away and your Figit Friend will increase his or her responses.
Another thing to note. There’s a reason this toy is recommended for children 6 and up. When speaking to the toy you must speak clearly if you want it to understand what you are saying.
