What It Is

What It Is

Fijit Friends are funny, interactive robots that dance and talk. There are four characters in different colors: Willa, Sage, Serafina, and Logan. In Home Mode, each Fijit performs random routines while waiting for commands. The Fijit recognizes more than 30 key words that are spoken to it and responds with more than 150 phrases. When girls talk to it, the Fijit will offer an appropriate response. If the Fijit asks, "What are you up to?", girls can say, "School" or "Nothing" and the Fijit will then continue the conversation. The Fijit also dances (to its own music or to music played by girls) and tells jokes. Each Fijit comes with removable ears and a key words reference card.

Why It’s Fun

There's a lot of interactivity between girls and the Fijits. The key word recognition makes it seem as though girls are having a real conversation with the Fijit. There are lots of different surprises for girls to discover as they interact and play with the Fijit Friends.

Who It’s For

Fijit Friends are for girls ages 6 and up.

What to Be Aware of

Each Fijit comes with five AA batteries, which are enough to power the Fijit in try-me mode, but Mattel recommends replacing the batteries for best results.

When you talk to Fijit, make sure you speak directly to it and enunciate. It also helps to be within two feet from the Fijit.

Mattel says that Fijit is set to respond to girls' voices, so if you're having trouble getting it to respond, try speaking in a higher pitch.
