I can’t imagine what it must be like for family members to be away from each other for just one day much less days or weeks at a time especially when the little ones are growing so fast. These Toymail WIFI Messaging Toys are an amazing way to bridge that gap.
And for that reason, this toy has so much more to offer than a typical toy. In today’s world when loved ones are scattered around the world, the Toymail WIFI Messaging Toy – Buck the Deer Mailman can bring them closer by keeping personal messages going back and forth.
Buck the Deer Mailman is actually a disguised device that can be used to record a voice message from you to your favorite child. Designed for ages 3 years and older, this messaging toy comes with a free iPhone or Android application, so you can communicate at any time.
Parents, you get to decide who your child can communicate with by the parental control feature. It’s the perfect device for families who have to live apart or travel a great deal. Best of all, Buck’s WiFi (not Bluetooth) is built-in and connects to your 2.4Ghz home WiFi network.
Then, you send and receive “Toymail” without having to use a nearby phone for the signal. All messages are stored in the “Voice Scrapbook,” of the free Toymail application, so you can play the messages over and over again to recount and enjoy.
The child can easily reply to a message by talking to Buck. Messages are free, so you don’t have to worry about over-doing it. When your child gets a new Toymail, Buck will howl, growl, whine and snort to alert him.
He’s a cute little pal that will get your child used to getting and receiving messages – and introducing him to the world of technology. Buck, the Deer Mailman is a perfect alternative to giving your child his own device and helping them feel connected to others rather than isolated because he doesn’t know how a phone works.
There are only two buttons for children to learn – send and receive. Hearing Grandma’s voice from far away will help him feel like she’s in the room. And, when you travel, it’s easy to keep in touch with him by letting him be comforted by the sound of your voice.
Gauri Nanda and Audry Hill are co-founders of Toymail and best friends. They worked to share their joint vision for how a toy should look and work. They created Toymail for kids so it would be easy, fun and educational.
The Toymail message box is made solid and shaped like a mailbox. Distinguishing features of the various animals are accomplished by the additions of antlers, ears, nose, eyes and other features that set them apart.
In addition to Buck the Deer, the other animal characters are Snort the Pig, Milksop the Bear, Rochester the Raccoon and Fairfax the Fox. The newest mailbox is Bushwick the Skunk but he may not be available just yet.
This is a great toy to gift a child age 3 years and up who has a parent who travels or grandparents living far away.
