I bought this toy for my two and a 1/2-year-old granddaughter for Christmas. She loves it! I love it as well, because I live three states away, and I can send messages to her. She has not figured out how to send one back, but she will as she gets older. I liked it so much, that I bought one for each of my great-grandchildren so we can communicate too.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
I bought six CloudPets, one for each grandchildren's family. I have an Android smartphone. I have been trying to set up my children's email address since Christmas, and it continues to say "problem communicating with the server." Even my kids have tried to fix it. I am getting so disgusted with this whole thing because I have spent well over $200. Do you have any advice?
