Talking Tom-Hot New Toy Giveaway

Last year I reviewed and gave away a Storytime Teddy by Cuddle Barn, an adorable talking bear that my kids loved! I took the cutest video of them watching their Storytime Teddy. It was by far their favorite Christmas toy last year. And this year, Cuddle Barn has another hot new toy just in time for the holidays, Talking Ben and Talking Tom.

Did you know that the Talking Friends app series has been downloaded more than 400 million times? That makes it one of the most popular apps of all time! The series of apps features an interactive animal, that has its own funny sayings, but will also repeat back everything you say in their individual funny voices. Now also an original Disney cartoon web series on; Talking Tom and Talking Ben are the hottest new app based toys since Angry Birds!  Talk about the next it toy!
I opened the Talking Tom when my kids were not around so I could check it out first. I didn't really get what the big deal was just to look at the toy. From outward appearances, it just looks like an average stuffed toy. But they you turn it on and start talking to it, the fun begins. He says everything that you say! And not just one or two words, he will repeat back multiple sentences. And I'll admit that the immature kid in both Brett and I came out as we made Talking Tom talk. It's just funny hearing a stuffed cat say boogers-immature, I know but you were warned.

My kids were much more grown up once they got a chance to play with it. My oldest is quite the talker and she enjoyed making Talking Tom reenact cartoon episodes. And then her inner wise apple came out and she started speaking through Talking Tom. She thought she was really funny and I happened to agree with her. I thought it was really cute that she wanted Tom to speak for her. My two year old twins liked it too, although they had to pry it away from their sister.

Talking Tom was a huge hit in my house! I will admit that I found him to be a little annoying after a couple of hours of non-stop play time. But then again I can say that about many of my kids toys. I really think this is a great toy to give to kids and since it's new, you don't have to worry about giving a gift that they already have.
