I was excited to get to review the My Friend Cayla Doll from Genesis Toys. My Friend Cayla is not just a traditional doll – she has a Bluetooth powered, secured search engine that makes her interactive! Cayla was sent to me and I reviewed her with my niece. Before we get into my review take a look at this video about My Friend Cayla and all the great things she can do. I showed my niece this video before the doll was shipped to me and she was super excited and couldn’t wait for her to get here. Take a look and see for yourself.
My Review: My first impression was that she was very well built and a great size. She looked exactly like the pictures and the video and she was pretty easy to setup. I used an iPhone to install the Cayla app that is needed to work with her and make her interactive but you can use a tablet as well. They had a video on how to activate bluetooth on my iPhone and how to install her batteries and turn her on. The instructions were super easy to follow especially the video and only took me about 10 to 15 minutes to get her up and running.
My niece seen above with the My Friend Cayla Doll really liked her new doll and was able to easily ask her questions and talk with Cayla. She did have to ask her questions sometimes twice but Cayla was very talkative and really had lots of things to say. I really loved that My Friend Cayla was able to read my niece a story that was on the app and also play games like Tic Tac Toe and Match Game with her! My niece played both games with her and it was really fun with no technical issues at all! I also like that her hair can be done and she can fit any 18″ doll clothes and shoes because my niece loves to do her hair and change her clothes and it makes Cayla fun even when she is not “online”.
If you want to get a My Friend Cayla Doll, which I think would make a great Christmas gift this year, she will soon be at Walmart, Target, Amazon and BJ’s Wholesale starting August 3rd so be on the lookout!
Thank you Genesis Toys for letting me try out My Friend Cayla first!
