When I was a kid, we pretty much thought we had the most technologically advanced toys in the world- robot dogs and electronic pets that fit in our pockets!? Seriously, could they get any better? Of course, now we see that the answer was YES! Those toys that were once so amazing are now nothing out of the ordinary. Just as our everyday technology has advanced, so have the toys our children play with!

Today, I'm excited to share with you one such toy: My Friend Cayla!

This delightful 18-inch Internet-connected fashion doll, My Friend Cayla, can provide your child with hours of imaginative play. In fact, she is more than just a doll you can style and dress; she's a real friend. Download Cayla's free app on your Apple or Android smart device to access more play features. Using voice recognition software, Cayla will understand and reply to your child in real time about baking, music, math, geography and millions of other things. Cayla plays games, shares her photo library and offers hours of storytelling. She's the smartest and sweetest BFF.

My Friend Cayla Doll, Blonde Hair:
  • Cayla can really chat with you — she has lots of things to say
  • Ask Cayla to tell you about herself, things she likes, what she wants to be when she grows up
  • Plays games, reads stories and talks about her photo albums
  • Download the free (English or Spanish) app, connect via Bluetooth and play
  • Compatible with Apple iOS and Android smart devices
  • Includes mirror and hairbrush
  • Compatible with most clothing accessories for 18" dolls



First of all, what girl doesn't love dolls!? I certainly did as a child! But you know something else that kids seem to love? Siri! Or at least my kids do! My son loves asking Siri questions and awaiting her responses. (Let's be honest, many adults enjoy this too!) In many way, My Friend Cayla combines the fun of dolls- dressing them up, brushing their hair, taking them everywhere- with the fun of talking to Siri... in a much more kid friendly package! And she does sooo much more! She doesn't just answer questions... she tells you about herself, she plays games, she reads stories! The fun just keeps coming!


Her app is available for free from both Apple & Android and is incredibly user friendly. My 8 year old picked it up right away and was navigating like a pro in no time. When it comes to kids' apps, user friendly is a MUST.

But I'll be honest, I'm that mom that is REALLY bad about keeping batteries on hand for toys. When toys run out, they often just sit unplayed with for ages. But with this toy, it's fun even without the app or the interaction. While these are the features that set it apart from the rest, this is a toy with limitless play options, with or without the technology!



My daughter- at just 2 years old- really didn't care one way or another about the app, but she loved the doll. My son- at 8 years old- typically wouldn't have given a doll like this a second glance, but he loved interacting with her and showing sister how it was done! If you have a doll-loving, technology savvy girl in your life, My Friend Cayla is a must see! I am certain this will be a popular toy this holiday season...for good reason! It's a blast- a perfect blend of imagination and technology!
