My Friend Cayla Review

My Friend Cayla

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 Friend Cayla

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!

Is Your Home Safe? FREE Home Risk Analysis!

Home Security
Is your home safe? Do you ever sit and think about what would happen in an emergency and if you would be ready? I thought I was pretty ready for any emergency but after taking a FREE Home Risk Analysis, I have some improvements to make! I never really thought about home safety in the way the analysis made me think of it. They bring up great points about not only home security like alarms etc but things like fire, flood and even internet safety. For example, do you have enough water for the whole family to last at least a few days in a natural disaster? Its always good to have water on hand even if you are just boiling it and putting it into containers to store in the basement. Luckily I stock up on water by couponing so in this area I scored high. Another area mentioned was identity theft which I learned a long time ago the hard way that you need to be very cautious with your identity! These are just two examples as there are many more.

After taking the free Home Risk Analysis you get a report that tells you what areas you need to improve on. My score was “average” but it noted areas I need to improve.  How do you think you would score? I recommend going to take your free Home Risk Analysis, it only takes 15 minutes and doesn’t require your address or any personal information besides your email address so what is there to lose? Its definitely 15 minutes well spent!!

Home Safety

Want to see how you would score go on over to the MBINTEL website. and take your FREE Home Risk Analysis today and see what areas you need to improve on to keep yourself and your family safe. After you get your Free Home Analysis you also have the option to upgrade to the paid version for more features like a full report with detailed descriptions of your specific risks ( I upgraded and got a 16 page report detailing each area that the report covered). The upgrade is not required but if you are interested, My readers can save $10 off the upgraded paid version ($29.95) with coupon code: MomBuzz 

Here is the list of features of the FREE vs PAID Analysis:
