Fijit Friends: The New Interactive Toy From Mattel
These robotic singing and dancing figures could become the latest craze for kids.
Fijit Friends are little robotic toys for young children that can sing, dance, chat and tell jokes. They could be the natural successor to the Furby in terms of their popularity amongst youngsters and the annoyance they cause adults. There are four kinds of these loud and energetic figures, each with their own color and characteristics. All of the Fijits have in-built beat detection so they dance differently depending on the type of music played. They have four unique songs, respond to touch, tell jokes, and have voice recognition. This enables them to reply to different phrases and they have over 150 responses, allowing them to chat.
