Still looking for the perfect Christmas gift? Then look no further… Following the success of Talking Tom Cat and his fellow Talking Friends apps, Outfit7 is shaking up the toy industry with the launch of Talking Friends Superstar, a first-of-its-kind app-powered toy.
I hadn't seen the Talking friends app before I agreed to review this plush toy, boy was I missing out! They are hilarious, and so much fun.
Extending play beyond successful apps is such a great idea. These toys - Talking Tom Superstar, Talking Angela Superstar and Talking Ginger Superstar are able to chat with and without the apps. We tried our Talking Tom first without the app, and he had us in stitches. His voice is really funny as he sings, tells jokes and farts. There is no need for a complicated set up, no Wi-Fi or Bluetooth needed, just switch the toy on and you are ready to go.
The toy comes in a lovely box, with a drawstring bag and a lead that you can use to connect your Talking Superstar to your PC or laptop, to download extra songs and jokes.
Bottom Line - What do we think? We can not recommend this toy enough. Excellent value for money and it provides lots of fun (and laughter). Big thumbs up from us!
Talking Tom Superstar, Talking Angela Superstar and Talking Ginger Superstar, are suitable for children aged 3 years+, and are available to order now from the Talking Friends Superstar website (shipping from 10th December 2012) priced from £35, with more Talking Friends characters joining the Superstar team soon. The toys run on three double-A batteries
