“I can learn your name!”
Give learning a personal touch with a soft, cuddly puppy pal. Violet is a plush, interactive learning toy that can be personalized to learn your child’s name and favorite songs, colors, food and more. Just connect the pup to a computer and start personalizing! Then, turn the teaching over to Violet and explore first words, numbers, daily routines and feelings. As children play with Violet, friendly activities encourage them to talk and sing along. This interaction can help develop early language skills as children start down the path to literacy. My Pal Violet is appropriate for children ages 6 to 36 months.
- Learning about numbers: Children are introduced to number names and number order through counting games and activities.
- Introducing Daily Routines: Learning about daily routines help children develop a sense of time and sequence.
- Learning about Feelings: Even very young children can begin to recognize and express their feelings, as well as the feelings of others.
“Press my paw to play music, songs or games.”
Enjoyable music, sing-along songs and lullabies are always available at the press of a paw. Press the Daytime Songs paw to sing along with up to five different, active, upbeat songs. When children are ready for new challenges, parents can connect Violet to a computer and select, download and swap in new tunes. To play learning games with Violet, press the Activities paw. The puppy starts the conversation by asking about your child’s favorite things, but the interaction doesn’t stop there.
Violet has lots to say, and this includes silly surprises like counting hiccups and pretending to be other animals, as well as more thoughtful communications, like talking about feelings. (For example, Violet might say: “I feel happy; show me your biggest smile.”) When it’s time to wind down from the day’s adventures, press the Lullabies paw to hear soothing lullaby music. These mellow tunes transition from a day of active learning to quiet naptime or nighttime. Once again, parents can choose and change the songs found in the Lullabies paw by downloading up to five new melodies and setting Scout for 2, 5, or 10 minutes of blissful bedtime music.
