Toymail is a smart toy that sends messages to and from kids. It's basically like email or text messages for kids but way, WAY cooler. Parents, grandparents and loved ones can send messages directly to their kids from their iPhone. Kids receive messages at home from the adorable toy Mailmen. They'll snort, whine, howl, and growl to let your child know they've got mail.
Meet the adorable little Mailmen-Snort, Fairfax, Buck, Rochester, and Milksop. They come in a line of colorful, four-inch-tall, Wi-Fi-enabled toys that allow you to send messages to your munchkins in real time. These toys are made with child-safe materials like ABS and PVC plastic. It runs simply on 4 AA batteries.
How it works
First, download the Toymail App on your iPhone or iPad for free. Then, connect Mailmen to your home WiFi network and you're ready to go! You simply record a voice message using the Toymail app from anywhere in the world, hit send, and The Mailmen toy will speak them back in their funny voice, or you can use choose to use your own voice. When your child receives a message through the Mailmen, they can reply right from the toy. This reply goes directly to your phone. How many times have you wanted to check in with your child directly while she's at home with the sitter and you're at the office?
