Argos have launched an app for children called My Christmas Wishlist. The app is aimed at children aged between 3 to 7 years old and is available for iOS and Android devices. It is an app to allow young children to choose the toys they want for Christmas and send it to Santa (aka mummy or daddy’s inbox).
After downloading the app, parents should register their email address in order to get the wish list from their children. You can also adjust how many toys the children can choose within a certain price range. I didn’t set this and let my children add as many toys as they wanted. What a big mistake! I had to go back, adjust it and get them to reselect.
In this Argos Wishlist app, there are five little cute helpers: Mo, Squidge, Fly, Gil and Stik. Once you have selected the helpers, it will ask you to take a selfie and add your name. You can have one profile for each child. Once your photo is taken, you can simply create your own wish list. It is divided into a number of categories: LEGO, Skylanders, Disney Infinity, Minecraft, Furby, Bear, Bicycle and many more. They are the best of the best toys for Christmas 2014.
Two months ago, I was invited to attend a My Friend Cayla tea party hosted by Vivid at Hamleys with Ms C. We were introduced to My Friend Cayla. She is the first ‘live’ interactive doll designed to sync with an online smart device (iOS and Android) to recognise a child’s speech. She is aided by Google’s speech-to-text technology.
