I travel a lot – you know this!
My children have been BEGGING me for a Cloud Pet… since the very FIRST time they saw the commercial. It’s all I’ve been hearing about. I would even go so far as to say they’ve been asking for one on a daily basis all summer long. So… I caved.
It’s pretty cool. I’m not going to lie. We made a little video about it to show the Cloud Pet in action.
Here’s how it works.
- Everyone downloads the app onto a device – the traveler and the person who is staying home with the kids.
- While I’m away, I record a message for my kids on my phone through the app. The app sends the message to my child’s inbox. My husband – who is home – gets an alert on his phone that there is a new message.
- My husband opens the message and sends it to the Cloud Pet.
- The Cloud Pet has a heart that starts to blink to tell the child there is a new message waiting for him/her. They press the paw to hear.
- If they want to, they can record a message back to the traveling parent.
Super fun!! And guess what? More than ONE person can use the same Cloud Pet. Think grandparents! Cousins! The list is limitless…
You can also listen to lullabies and play games through the app which my kids completely appreciate.
Honestly – if you watch the video, you will see how much my daughter LOVES this doll. It’s a “message you can HUG”. That’s what differentiates it from a typical text. After they hear my voice through the bunny, my kids can then hug the doll. It makes me feel tangible. I love the idea since I travel so much!!
I’m heading to LA tomorrow morning for a few days and we are going to actually use the Cloud Pet OFFICIALLY while I am away for the very first time — I can’t wait!!
