As a single parent, the biggest challenge I face is balancing the need to work and the need to be present in my kids' lives. Enter the Talkie, which allows Teny and me to communicate screen-free in real time. I hate the phrase game changer, but that's exactly what this little toy is. Teny is so happy that he can "talk" to me anytime he wants to when I'm gone at work, and I'm happy that he is no longer waking up crying because I left before he could say goodbye to me. I'm going to call this one a win-win. Well played, @toymailco #singlemomlife
fun toy that allows freinds and relatives to talk to the kid and he can talk back. How cool is that?
I LOVE IT I LOVE IT I LOVE IT.
Absolutely perfect for keeping in touch with my 5 year old nephew and his 8 year old sister. They live in AZ and I am in PA, so they can communicate directly with me. ...and they are thrilled. I look forward to their cute messages. Since my niece likes to keep it in her room at night, it would be great if there were a "sleep mode" option. With a 3 hour time difference, I have to be careful of when I send a message.
This is a fantastic product! I first heard about it on Shark Tank and just had to get one for both of my kids. I'm currently stationed in Korea with the Army for a year, and this has been a great way season me to stay connected directly with my kids. They're five and two years old respectively and have no problems operating their "talkies" :)
I highly recommend this product. It's been a fantastic product.
Yes, I love keeping in touch with my grand children!
Such an awesome fun toy! I love how it can allow my grandsons to hear and recognize my voice.
My boys love sending me messages at work and I love to hear their little voices.
Now my granddaughter sends us messages and we send her one back. We really do love it!
I can't say enough about how much of a positive impact our Talkie has had! My son hates to wake up in the morning without me, but now he can talk to me anytime he wants! He's gone from crying fits in the morning to being happy and relaxed. I would have never thought that a toy could make such a difference in his happiness, but it truly has. Awesome product, highly recommended!
We purchased a Toymail Talkie for my son and his bff (both 3yrs old). They LOVE them, and so do we and their grandparents! It was simple to setup, and he figured out how to use it himself after 2 days! We haven't had any technical issues with the talkie at all. He uses it all day long, sleeps with it and wants to bring it everywhere :) I would definitely recommend this toy, and I have told all of my friends about it. It is such a great way for them to feel a tiny bit of independence, while also building their connections with family members that live in other states/countries.
Our girls love it! An easy way for them send messages to grandparents and cousins that alleviates their constant requests to use my phone. My six year old checks with enthusiasm multiple times a day. Sending messages is easy enough for my four year old to use without problem. Highly recommended for kids that want to be sending messages but who aren't old enough for their own device.
Far and away the best gift from Christmas. My girls can send and receive messages from family and friends. This is Hank the Dino, and we are all in love.
Congrats! I've been a fan of Toymail since the first iteration. My daughter loved her Snort and Hank Dino is even better. You can't put a price ta on getting a voice message from your 5-year old when you're on the road. Keep up the great work.
Simply amazing!!!!! My 16 month old niece and nephew LOVE theirs!!!!!
We cherish the messages our grandsons send us!
What a great product!! It was super easy to install and it is very user friendly for kids and grown-ups. I love getting messages from my son throughout the day. Grandma and grandpa are loving it too. My son loves being able to "talk" to me whenever he wants to. I would highly, highly recommend this to anyone with kids.
Ben is back in #KSA... but thanks to his #awesome #hankthedino #Talkie, Max can talk to his #Daddy whenever he wants.
#Safe and secure, but #simple enough to give this #threenager the #independence he craves, by allowing him to record and download messages without #Mummy interfering! <3
This is such a wonderful product! Both of my two younger children have one! Recently their best friends moved to another state and their friends got one too. It has allowed them to communicate with each other on a daily (sometimes hourly) basis. All the grandparents have gotten the app as well as my kids uncles and friends that live out of town. We all communicate and leave each other fun short messages on our toy mail! Now my niece and nephew have a toy mail and as their aunt I can leave them good morning and good night words of encouragement. It truly is a wonderful product that keeps friends and families connected without have screen time...I just LOVE the product!
One of my kids favorite toys. It's a great way to allow them to communicate with family without the addiction of a smartphone. People seem to be complaining that it doesn't work outside of the home.. Which is not true, it works where ever there is wi-fi. You can connect to free wifi or create a hotspot on your phone. Not sure how some of these people think it would work outside of wifi without paying a monthly subscription to use internet. The only thing there should be is a cancel button as my kid has accidentally hit the message button a few times. One of the best toys of the year.
I am a traveling engineer and my schedule makes it difficult to talk frequently with my two small boys. This is a great way to keep in touch and check in with the kids daily. We all love getting the messages everyday. It was VERY easy to set up and begin Toymailing! I would recommend this product to anyone looking to keep in touch with family or friends!
Max loves recording messages for his Nana and Papi <3
Love having family time even when I'm on the road thanks to @toymailco. Check them out, thank me later!
My 6 year old absolutely loves this! She talks to her grandparents and us whenever she wants. It alerts us on our phone without having to go into the app. It's great and SO simple to send encouraging messages she can have inside of her loving stuffed animal. She sleeps with it and it gives her comfort replaying our voices. Saves about 10 messages at a time. Was a tad difficult to set up, but once I read the FAQs I was able to get it, the cover on my phone was our issue. It's a piece of cake once it's set up and if you have issues the tech support was GREAT!!! I can't wait to see what else it will do when we get one for my son and they talk to each other!
My daughter loved it.
This my favorite gift of my daughters' by far. It makes keeping in touch with family easier. Be careful not to accidentally send messages lol
We love sending surprises to this little peanut. Auntie and Uncle knew she would love having a Talkie. I don't think she has put it down once! Got the Dino for her cousin so they can send msgs to each other. Thanks @toymailco for making us this sweet toy and for helping us look cool. 🤗
We LOVE Bitsy! We bought her so that our children and my husband can communicate when he is working away. For one, it is awesome I don't have to help or use my phone for my kids to "talk" to their dad. And it is awesome that the kids can send and listen to messages on their own. Even my 1 year old knows how to push the belly to hear messages, and he does over and over! I like that the "sending" function TELLS the kids that it is still working on sending messages (I believe this is actually an update recently because I think it only beeped before). But now they know to not push a bunch of buttons while it is sending a message. Very cute and functional, definitely recommend! We bought before they were advertising being on Shark Tank, so we missed getting the deal going on, but it is worth it either way!
Love love love Toymail! My grandson has had his for a couple of years and both grandmothers use it regularly. Between his busy schedule and me traveling and in different time zones we are able to "talk" to each other whenever we can!
SQUEEEEZE!!!!! We cannot contain our excitement for our brand new line @toymailco!!! This is one of the best products we have ever seen!
We bought Hank for our son for Christmas, and we are thrilled with this addition to our family. He is super easy to use- my son is 5 and had it mastered within a few messages. He can talk to his aunts and uncles and grandparents both in America and in France. We love that there is a time setting on it, so that Hank is asleep during the night too. When it wakes up, it will update and let my son know if anything came in from France overnight.
I love that the app side keeps the message chain. I love going back and listening to my son's messages.
He loves that he can tell jokes to his uncle whenever he wants.
Important to wait a few seconds after the ding to speak- that way the first word isn't cut off. The customer service has been extraordinary as well! Great invention and super fun to use.
My granddaughter (4yrs old) and I can now talk every day and share our days with each other!
I love it that we do this! And I love that it is not a phone and has no screen. We know what we look like and we love to hear each other's voice!
What a cool little toy. I bought Bitsy after seeing it on Shark Tank for my two and a half year old granddaughter and even though she is younger than the recommended age, she's already got it figured out! Easy to set up and she loves it!
To see my 2.5 year olds face light up when he gets a new message from our far-away family makes my day every day! Thank you Toymail for making us more connected! His little best friend is getting one for Easter and I'm so glad they have a high-tech yet screen free way to keep in touch when the military moves us away! When Daddy deploys we know it's just one more way to help make the time apart easier on him! Easy to use, quick set-up and amazing customer service even at the busiest week their company has experience so far I'm sure since they appeared on Shark Tank! Well worth the price. Their How-To videos answered any questions I had regarding set-up. This is new technology folks! Take your time and read through the directions and you shouldn't have any trouble.
Bitsy the talkie has definitely moved in.. she's here enjoying shaun the sheep! #toymail #cooltoys
We received this from my mother in law after we saw it on shark tank. Set up took some work but it wasn't Toymail's fault. I don't recall if the instructions are written wrong, or if it was operator error (which is completely possible!), but once we figured it out, it has worked perfectly and my kids love it!! Would definitely recommend it!!
Bought these to keep in touch with my grandson. They worked great, then one stopped working. :( I contacted the company, problem resolved right away. I love these!
Got this as a gift for our newborn daughter. This toy makes it possible for her to receive personal voice messages from her dad while he's deployed overseas. Took a bit to learn and setup, but it was well worth it. Buttons on the toy are straight forward and easy to learn. I would recommend this toy to anyone who wants stay connected to their child while they're away.
This is a genius product, that fits the need for my family. Our daughter is 8 and really wants a phone or other devices to communicate with our family and friends. We feel she is to young to getting into that just yet. When I saw this product on Shark Tank Friday night I knew it was a safe way for her to get some of the "phone features" that she would be completely in charge of. This product is the first thing I have ever bought from Shark Tank after watching the show since it started so it really spoke to me. It is safe (with the trusted circle list) I know she can control and send safe messages without my complete supervision. It gives her that perfect sense of independence that she craved.
I love the bat skin, but also they are coming out with more skins soon (unicorn and bunny to name a few.) I also love that you can just buy the replacement cover when you need it so you do not have to re-buy the brains of the toy again. I felt the app was fairly simple to navigate (we have Android phones.) We easily informed our family how to get set up and start talking. My daughter finds her Talkie easy to operate and loves to send and receive messages. Plus it giggles and snores which is adorable. It has earned one the most coveted spot on her bed next to her other favorite stuffed animals. It brings her joy to hear the message alert and to be able to communicate with family and friends that might not be near us. We have family all over the country and this is a great way to keep in touch. She can also keep in touch with her friends that have "talkies."
I am sorry to have read that customer service in other reviews was lacking. I had the complete opposite experience. We bought the toy on Saturday and it arrived from Amazon on Monday. We set it up and played with it all day Monday. Then Tuesday morning a new patch and our toy had a little bug. But I loved working with customer service, Marla was amazing and took all the time I needed and fixed the toy. From start to finish it was a great experience and I could tell they cared. I really could not give Marla more praise if I wanted to. She was a rock star! The customer service team and engineering team were amazing.
This product really does fill a gap needed in the market. It is clever and fun. I could not recommend this product more.
I've purchased two of these, the Deer and the shark(Gory). My 5yr old grandson loves that he and his cousin in another state are able to keep in touch when they want and he enjoys receiving and sending messages to me and his father who doesn't live with him.
Ireland loves her new @toymailco #talkie. She loves getting the messages when they come through especially this reminder from dad at work to change her new baby doll. :)
THIS IS GENIUS! My 22 year old recently married, leaving just one sibling left at home; a 7 year old. She got him this for Christmas and they love it. It's very easy to use, it's adorable and I'm excited to get more talkies to connect my granddaughters to me and each other. It's a great alternative to a phone! Really perfect for kiddos going on custodial visits but too young for a phone! ❤
These two look like they could be friends. #toymail
Toymail is amazing. I travel a lot for work and it's impossible to put a price tag on a voice message from your 5-year old when you're on the road. My daughter loves her Dino, which she uses to send messages to me, her grandma, her aunt and her mom. Toymail is simple to configure and use. Can't say enough great things about this product.
@sacca My great nephew Easton with his #HankTheDino @toymailico
Got this for our son and he loves "Sharkie"! Set up was easy, and he's having fun getting messages from his his family, who lives across the state. He just turned three, so he's learning how to send messages, but having lots of fun doing it and playing with Sharkie. I definitely recommend this for any little kid!
Our boys have Hank and Gory and they love them dearly! They love being able to talk to their dad and work as well as their grandparents. They could even keep in touch with us when my husband and I had to take a business trip for a few days. It was very easy for our 7 year-olds to figure out how to use their Talkies entirely on their own. We ended up buying three more Talkies for their young cousins for Christmas so they could all stay in touch. Our boys wait every day for their cousin to get home from school so she can reply to their messages! In addition to the Talkies being high quality and easy to use, I love that their customer services is so quick and thorough- you can even reach the Toymail team on social media and they'll get back with you right away! Five stars from the kids and five stars from the grown ups!
We are currently stationed over seas, we bought this for my dad so he could keep in touch with his grandkids. Set up was super simple and straight to the point. After we synced his phone to the talkie he recorded a couple and then sent them as a test. The recording were clear and not staticky like Walkie talkies. I would high recommend this to all military, traveling or just long distance families!
