We received a selection of My Audio Pet products for free to play with and review. I also purchased some additional products as gifts for my niece and nephew. Opinions are my own.
Back at Toy Fair I visited the My Audio Pet booth and was blown away by their products. They not only had the cutest tiny bluetooth speakers but they had huge sound coming out of those speakers. Each of the My Audio Pets speakers has a name and personality. There is Slow Jam the sloth, Scales the dragon, Unichord the unicorn and so many more. What really caught my eye was Narmony the Narwhal that was part of the My audio Pet Splash line. This is a line of products that are larger than the rest of the pets and also waterproof. They have 5 watts of sound per speaker and a rechargeable battery.
We received Narmony as part of our review products and started using it in Andy’s room right away. What is nice is that because it is bluetooth we can play something from another room and Andy can listen to it in his room. He has lost the privilege of his iPad for a while and instead of losing out on hearing his favorite audio books at night we can start his book on his iPad and it can play on his Narmony speaker.
We also received two of the regular sized My Audio Pets including one that was part of a book gift set. We received Unichord the Unicorn and Scales the dragon which came with the book Scales the Tiniest Dragon: The Magic Song. There are several books that are original ones that come with special My Audio Pet Pets. I went back and purchased You Silly Little Raccoon that comes with the audio pet Treble Maker. I also bought Slow Jam and Choral: Bugaboo Forest that came with a Slow Jam my audio pet.
Now, why would a bluetooth speaker come with a book. Well, in addition to these being cute little speakers there is also an app that kids can use to play the book on the speaker. But you can also record your own voice reading the book. That was the whole reason I got the two additional book sets. I wanted to have Andy and Eva read the books to their cousins. My intent was to send the gifts directly to my sister but I made a mistake and sent them to my own house. At least with the app I can share the recorded versions of the stories with my sister and she can let the kids play them and follow along with the books, that may our kids are reading to their cousins. You just need the My Audio Pets Plus app which is free. The books are on the app and you can read any one of them, record it and share with friends and family.
We use our two My Audio Pets for our backyard movie nights. Because the speakers can be paired together to provide stereo sound we use them exclusively to give us great sound as the movie plays. We have done this already once this year and look forward to doing many more movie nights.
