Seeking the perfect present for the child in your life with a bedroom full of stuffed animals and toys? Give their old toys a completely new way to play with the Chappet!
So, the Chappet is a 2-inch-wide yellow button, like the kind on a shirt with 4 holes. Only this button is a rechargeable Bluetooth speaker controlled by a smartphone app. You can either sew the button onto your child’s favorite stuffed toy, or make it into a necklace to hang around it’s neck. Then you can communicate through your cell phone, and your child will listen to their stuffed friend speaking. Chappet is a unique item that sparks creativity, vocabulary building and ongoing learning in the child.
The app has four options:
1) Voice Chat: In this setting, you can chat with your child. In this scenario, you can be a room away pretending you are their favorite stuffed lovey and listen to their earnest excitement as they get to play with their special friend in an entirely new way.
2) Text Chat: The text option allows the Chappet to reads aloud what you type in it’s own character voice.
3) Tap Chat: Tap chatting allows you to select from pre-recorded sentences. Choose from a list of more than 1,000 phrases across categories that suit a variety of every day scenarios, and 20 pre-recorded songs and stories. You can also add new phrases via text with your own voice, and original songs and stories too.
4) Auto Chat: This is one of the funniest options. The Chappet responds to your child’s voice by making affirmative sounds of agreement, or mimicking phases.
One of my favorite memories is of my toddlers pushing all the buttons on the dancing Halloween and Christmas decorations in the store aisles – over and over again they would push repeat and laugh with glee like it was the first time. Imagine how they would react to the Chappet? It could be a much richer experience, that allows families to create fun memories during the magical time when toys are always alive in kids’ minds.
The toy makers say this could work well during potty training or nap times. Imagine having the power to turn tantrums into laugh fests if a game could be made by their Potty Training Teddy Bear, or Nap Time Giraffe? I’m a fan of how this bright button can be placed where ever you want it, and removed just as easily for cleaning.
