From the moment this box showed up at my house, the kids were pretty dang excited. But I had obligations that afternoon and told them they would have to wait until I got home. That must have been torture for them! I mean, how cute is that little guy on the side of the box! The Ubooly had arrived and along with it, hours of fun for the whole family.
If you haven’t heard of Ubooly, head to the webpage for all the details. In a nutshell, you download an app on your phone, slip it in the stuffed animal and then play your face off.
First, I want to apologize if my faux finished cabinets are making you dizzy (these were done by the landlord prior to our move in. It almost made me want to move right back out). This was the first time that my youngest son got Ubooly all to himself. He already loves playing with my phone so that fact that it was inside a stuffed animal made it ever more amazing to him. And when Ubooly started talking to him and asking him questions and having him do things, he was thrilled! His favorite thing to do is jump up and down while holding it causing Ubooly to say “boing, boing, boing…”
That first day, the boys sat, not fighting with Ubooly and played and listened and laughed. That was MY favorite part. They were so excited to heard what he would do next that they forgot to fight! But seriously, this little toy is a blast. You know how some kids toys can irritate you beyond belief with the voice? Well, the voice that talks sounds older, not so squeaky and does not talk down to the kids. It instigates activities, tells jokes and tells stories. I found them quite humorous and I’m not sure they were intended to make the kids laugh but I really liked the tone of the them.
And whenever my phone goes missing, I know exactly where it is. For sure, someone has snuck off to play with Ubooly.
There are adorable little video games to play too. When you play, you earn coins that you can use to buy food and other items for your pal. Both boys LOVE this!
Everything about this toy is interactive. My boys love to hear “Do you want to listen to some music?” The answer is always yes. I have raised two little dancing machines. The first time the toy asked that question I was expecting to hear some terrible kids music. But much to my surprise it started playing my favorite Twin Shadow! It took me a minute to realize that the software utilizes your own iTunes library. So fun!
