It’s inevitable. Stuffed animals and technology will mix together. iPetPals for example launches a new line of interactive tech stuffed animals.
The company says it takes the traditional toy and pairs it with technology and music. Why music? It’s instinctive.
From birth, parents instinctively use music to calm and soothe children, to express their love and joy, and to engage and interact, the company says. So, iPetPals is based its new toys on that instinct.
“These furry friends add smiles to playtime and boogie time fun. Cozy and cuddly, they promote snores with streaming lullabies and soothing waves for napping or bedtime. iPetPals can easily adapt to any mood their little ones are in and are easy breezy to use”, the company writes.
How do they work? Well, they have a built in speakers in the paws. They also have a back pocket and an audio plug. So, you can attach any phone or MP3 player and store it away in the secure pocket.
“iPetPal owners press play on their mobile device before closing the pocket to hear desired music. The volume is also controlled by the plugged in mobile device. Rest assured, iPetPal speakers DO have a max audio output level to ensure safe listening for delicate wee ones’ ears”, the company adds.
The line features several stuffed animals, including a teddy bear, elephants, horses, giraffes, dogs, hippos, and more. They are retailing at $49.99 for the standard size or $29.99 for the mini version.
