Fijit Friends Newbies

V has wanted a Fijit Friend since they first came out a couple of years ago. We looked at them multiple times in the store, but decided that she wasn’t old enough for one yet. But I could only say no for so long. When she saw the Fijit Friends Newbies she immediately starting asking for them for her birthday and Christmas.

She was so surprised to get them early!!

We received three super cute Fijit Friends Newbies to check out and play with, and she could hardly decided which one to play with first.

Two of our Fijit Friends are limited edition holiday ones – a Halloween bat named “Trick or Treat Tia”, a Christmas themed one named “Winter Cheer Zinzie” – and we also received the pink Newbie – Kinzie.

I have been watching her play with her new Newbies, and I noticed that she loves to have them sing together. I am honestly not even sure how she figured it out on her own, but she did. The duet button is located where the Newbies belly button would be, and when you touch the duet button of two Newbies at the same time they start singing in perfect harmony. It is really fun to listen to!!

V has taken to carrying a Newbie around with her at all times. Right now, Tia is getting lots of attention with the upcoming holiday, but E makes sure that the other two aren’t feeling left out. Both kids have been really enjoying hearing the fun songs, purrs, coos and other noises the Fijit Friends make.

I love that this toy is not only fun, but is also encouraging my kids to be nurturing and caring. The more that a Newbie is played with, the better its singing gets. V is always taking care of her Newbies and it has been lots of fun to hear their singing improve — and V is super proud of how her “pets” (as she calls them) keep getting better 🙂

While we don’t have an Original Fijit Friend yet, it is now at the top of V’s Christmas list. And after seeing how much she loves playing with these little Newbie’s, I am sure that she will be finding one under the tree. A really neat feature about the Fijit family of friends is that the Original Fijit and the Newbies can interact with each other!

We have already picked up a Fijit Friend Newbie for a birthday gift this month, and V cannot wait to give her friend a new, cute little pal. The super cute Newbie’s would make an excellent holiday gift, and are sure to find their way onto many little girls Christmas lists this year!
