My Friend Cayla Interactive Doll

Hi Neighbors!

I recently had the opportunity to review My Friend Cayla.  She is an interactive doll that works with your a smart device.  We used our iPad.  She connects through Bluetooth and your child can talk to her, ask questions, play games and even share stories.

Cayla has beautiful blond hair which my daughter immediately braided.  After downloading the app and turning Cayla on we ran Cayla through a few simple test runs.  One of the first things my daughter did was changed her name to Maria.  Yes, you can change her name.  You can choose from a few different games to play with Cayla, so M played Tic, Tac, Toe.  M won!  She listened to one of the stories and then we decided to ask her some questions.  She will tell you her name and age and of course has some background to share.  We were able to ask her questions like:
1. Who was George Washington?
2. Who was Billy Sunday?
3. What is 75 x 3?
4. What is 10 x 10?
She answered every one, although we did have to repeat the questions sometimes.

Cayla does come with a software system, Violet, that prevents any foul language or inappropriate topics through.  You can also choose to manually block certain words if you like.  No website links or  images will appear on your smart device and no data mining can be done.  Cayla is safe for your child to use and interact with.

I have a feeling most little girls will enjoy playing with Cayla.  The ability to interact with this doll will be a real draw.  We were impressed with the responses Cayla gave.  If your question is not clear she will ask you to repeat what you said.  I think there were a couple of times when she seemed unable to answer, but I think that was because of a bad internet connection at the time.

Be sure to follow Cayla on her social media:

A little technical information.  Cayla does require 3 AA batteries.  You can play with Cayla without internet connection, but you will need internet is you are asking her questions that require her to search for information.  You do need to be within 30 feet of the smart device to play games, look at pictures, etc.  There are downloadable apps for Cayla to speak a different language.  Cayla's clothing can be changed out with most clothing that fits 18" dolls.

Cayla is now available in stores.  You can find her at many local department stores.  Keep an eye out for the upcoming review of My Friend Teddy!  Thanks for stopping by today!
