My Friend Cayla Doll Review
Are you starting to think about what to buy your little girl this holiday season? Are you looking for an affordable doll that talks? Well, I think I found a great option for you. I was lucky enough to be sent a My Friend Cayla doll to review and share my opinion with my readers!
I was so excited to get to review the My Friend Cayla Doll from Genesis Toys because 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 beautiful little 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.
What did you think? Cool right? She was even cooler in person.
My Friend Cayla Doll 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, can you tell? She 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 had lots of things to say. I 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. This feature is so cool because it allows your little one to have another friend to play with.
I also like that her hair can be combed and tied up and that she can fit any 18″ doll clothes that are sold in most stores that sell toys. This feature makes her more affordable because I find sometimes the clothes for certain dolls can be costly. My niece loves to do her hair and change her clothes, and it makes Cayla fun even when she is not “online.” She also comes in a few different versions as you can see below.
If you want to get a My Friend Cayla Doll, which I think would make a great gift this year, My Friend Cayla can be found at Walmart and Target.
Thank you, Genesis Toys for letting me try out My Friend Cayla first! What do you think of My Friend Cayla? Would your child or loved one like one?
