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!
