Fijit Friends Newbies Review

My girls received the Fijit Friends a few months or so ago and loved them!  They enjoyed the interaction, how they played music, danced to other music and could even tell jokes.  This time, they were introduced to the new Fijit Friends Newbies which are cute little versions of the Fijit Friends.  They don't do all that their big pals do but they are so cute and fun.  I had hoped on having a great review and demonstration but that fell apart mostly due to a bumped up move that I just partook.  However, all is not for naught as I was able to get the girls to at least give a really short video demonstration.  The quality is not that great due to the wind and the fact they are shy but here is our attempt:







The Fijit Friends Newbies come in different colors and can interact with the Fijit Friends which is a big plus!  If you have more than one, they will sing duets to add the excitement and fun.  They are great for parties, sleep overs or just to have a little friend around.  They are battery operated and are recommended for ages six and up.  


Fijit Friends


One of the things I liked is how easy they are to play with and how easy it is to have them interact with the Fijit Friends.  I think what they loved was the size as they were easy to handle, compact and easy to take with them.  They were fascinated at how they interacted with their big buddies (i.e. Fijit Friends) shown above.


The girls liked nurturing their Fijit Friends Newbie by tickling and petting "him" to get him to sing more.  They also got a kick out of how they respond when you squeeze their sides.  Given my youngest just loves to sing, she enjoyed the humming and singing aspect the most and always breaks out in dance when they start playing their songs.  My youngest liked the Newbie but my older one liked the Fijit Friends bigger version since it had more interaction capabilities.  Overall, they are both great toys to give the children something to do and have fun.  Also, since they get them up dancing, they get in a little physical activity which I don't mind at all!


They are cute, fun and best of all, not too expensive.  Another great toy from Mattel!
