These little Radica Fijit Friends from ThinkGeek are cuddly and cute. ThinkGeek, and the video on their Fijit page, say these toys are for girls, but I think they might appeal to younger kids of both genders. Be aware that they are recommended for ages 6+ because they have small parts that could pose a choking risk. They are interactive, recognizing 30 keywords and responding with 150 phrases. Their faces light up to show they’re listening and ready to play. Fijits hear and respond to music by dancing. And they have Sonic Chirp technology that listens for signals from the Fijit Friends website that will unlock new phrases and dance moves. These robots are 8.6″ tall and weigh 1.6 pounds. They come in four colors, but you’ll receive a random color. Each Fijit is $49.99.
