When my kids see my parents, it’s like one of those scenes from a movie where everything turns to slow motion, two people run towards each other, and then they throw their arms around each other like they haven’t seen one another in years. My kids are madly in love with my parents, their Nene and Pappy, and believe me, the feeling is mutual. When those four are together, I’m all “Hey guys, remember me?”
My parents want to be involved in the kids’ lives every single day, but that’s not always easy since we live three hours away from my parents. So we turn to technology like FaceTimeing before bed and talking on the phone when the kids get home from school to stay connected on every little but all of those very important aspects of their lives. But this week I surprised the kids with CloudPets™ when we headed to my parents’ house for a long weekend. The results: happy kids, happy grandparents, happy mom.
I’m a fan of any toy that serves a purpose more than just collecting dust in my house. I’m looking at you stuffed animals! Besides being adorable stuffed animals, CloudPets™ have a text/voice message feature. You can download a free app, register your child’s animal, then invite friends and family to send a message to the pet. So your friends and family can record a message, your child’s pet’s heart will flash red, and your kids know that they have a new message waiting for them. You can hear the message on your CloudPets™ and then record a message and send it back. So they can actually receive and send messages as many times as they want. Don’t worry, CloudPets™ come with parental controls and only the people that you as the parent invite can send a message to your child’s pet. You can even send stories and songs to the CloudPets™.
You can find all of the CloudPets™ at Walmart. Our store had a big pallet display right in front where they had the different animals you can choose from. Also, each animal takes three AA batteries. Aaron picked the puppy and Lyla picked the unicorn
Missing your grandparents is hard. But sweet messages from your grandparents on your very own CloudPets™ makes missing them a whole lot easier. What about you? Who do you know that would love a CloudPets™?
