There’s no doubt that our family loves technology. Wherever we go, something comes with us; iPod, iPad, gaming devices – you name it, we take it. The kids love their iPod’s, but I am always scared that one will drop and crack. This is where HappiTaps comes in to play to help our travels keep the iPod safe and even more fun.
HappiTaps are the first-of-its-kind toy/app hybrid. A lovable teddy-bear friend that leverages toddlers’ newly found fascination with touchscreen smartphones and the classic comfort of plush, huggable toys that creates a truly interactive, lovable companion. Put your iPhone or iPod touch inside a HappiTaps case, download the free app, and voilà: the 21st century Teddy.
Beary Happi is the first HappiTap. Kids will watch him come to life in a manner never before experienced in a plush toy. They will love nurturing him, feeding him, and helping him go to sleep. Or listening to him chat, share fun facts, tell jokes, stories or sing songs. Beary will keep kids engaged and learning.
Suitable for iTots 18+, Beary Happi is at the forefront of the “app-cessory” trend.
Right out of the box, I was pleased with what I saw. You get Beary Happi, the very first HappiTap character. He is adorable as can be! Within the package, you get a HappiTap., a foam pad in case you have a newer generation iPod (to prevent the iPod from being loose within the HappiTap itself), as well as a plastic ring making it easier to carry, travel with or even clip on the back of a car seat or even on an infant car seat handle. Kambry loves to have this on so that she can clip it on her backpack when we travel.
All you have to do is slip the iPod touch in the back portion of the HappiTap, download the free app and you are literally ready to go.
The free app has so many features on it, but you are able to upgrade for just 99 cents and open more features, like more stories, to HappiTaps.
How cute is he??? I love that it’s small in size, yet keeps the iPod touch padded on case it is dropped. My ONLY suggestion for HappiTaps would be to make the face insert a just a tiny bit wider and taller so that it’s easier to slide your finger over the option drop menu, as well as to see the home button on the iPod itself.
Here is a short video showing you just a few things that HappiTaps does.
We HIGHLY recommend HappiTaps!
You can download the Beary App on iTunes for FREE! The Beary Happi unique HappiTaps case is MSRP $19.99. We were just in the mall this weekend and a cashier at a department store saw it and asked where to buy for her daughter. This really IS the “pawfect” gift!
