Interactive Ask Amy Doll

About Ask Amy

Playing with dolls isn’t just a fun pastime for a child. Dolls can perform an important role in a child’s cognitive fine motor skill development, teach the ability to nurture and care for another item, and provide comfort in a time of need. But imagine how exciting it would be if a child’s favorite doll virtually came alive to tell stories, sing songs, provide encouragement, and engage a child in conversation with voice recognition and realistic facial expressions and head movements? World of Magic Toys has combined traditional pretend play with technology to create the new Ask Amy™ Doll.

What makes Ask Amy so special is that she seems so much like a real companion to a child because her lips move naturally as she speaks and her head will turn or blink her eyes. These are recognizable behaviors which help engage children deeper in play,” says Elvira Tchoukanine, founder of World of Magic Toys. “Speaking with new people or reading in front of a class are some of the most intimidating tasks for a young child. I created Ask Amy to help children become more confident in themselves and when interacting with other people.”

Product

Encouraging emotional and language development, the Ask Amy Doll responds to 12 verbal prompts to answer questions, provide words of inspiration, and motivates children to sing along or recite a variety of poems. She also varies her responses and songs so that every play experience is unique. The Ask Amy Doll is an impressive 22″ in size, and helps transform your child’s play experience to a whole new level, every single time they interact.

Features You Will LOVE

  • Comes with a storybook and interactive phrase list
  • Currently available with either blonde or brunette silky soft hair which can be brushed and styled
  • Recommended for ages 3–8 years old
  • Requires 6-AA batteries and features an on/off switch on the back
  • Interchangeable outfits (coming soon!)
Perfect For

The Ask Amy Doll is perfect for any child age 3-8 who loves pretend play and doll play. If that child is an introvert, this doll may provide conversational skills that could benefit them as they grow up – not to mention countless hours of fun.

Keen Little Kid’s Footwear

About Keen

Keen makes footwear, bags and socks with real life in mind. They realize that we all work hard and play hard so everything they make is designed to be comfortable and hold up no matter where life takes you. You can wear your Keens while you run errands and then head straight out for a hike without having to change your shoes. Not only do they make great products, they give back by giving grants to non-profits who protect our environment, and they are focused on making their products in the U.S.A., bringing jobs home! Keen makes footwear for men, women, babies and kids. Keen shoes are ideal for kids because they provide comfort and support for little feet but are built tough to withstand anything a kid can do in them.

Product

The Keen Little Boy’s Tobias looks great and is designed with the life of a little boy in mind. Like all Keen products, it is built tough and won’t fall apart on you after a hike in the woods or lots of time at the playground. Made of durable leather and breathable mesh, this shoe is comfortable and high quality. The Tobias comes in three colors that are all neutral and will match most things that little boys wear day to day. We love the magnet/koi color. The magnet or grey matches everything but the koi/orange accents give the shoe a fun little pop of color!

Your little guy can wear these shoes casually with jeans but if you need to dress him up, he can totally rock these shoes with some khaki pants and look great. The versatility of the Tobias ensures it will get a lot of wear, which is important in kid’s shoes since they are outgrown so quickly. So let your wild child play all day in this shoe and if you need him cleaned up for dinner out with the grandparents, just put his Keen Little Boy’s Tobias right back on with a new outfit!

Features You Will LOVE

  • EVA Footbed
  • Built tough! Made of leather and mesh with a non-marking rubber sole
  • Two adjustable hook and loop velcro straps to ensure a snug fit
