My daughter got this toy for her first birthday. Very easy to set up! You program the childs name and favorite food and color ect. My daughters name is Avery and it speaks her name very clearly! I was very superised of the quality of the features and I have to say it may be the most awsome toy i've ever seen! And the price? I think the toy is worth WAY more!
The toy is a good toy, but like the other reviewer that gave a poor rating, my Violet did not connect to the computer and run the program as it said it should. I tried another USB cable, though, and it WORKED just as it should. This is a very inexpensive toy, and the USB cable is not a quality cable. I tried my digital camera cable and it worked IMMEDIATELY. I tried Violet's cable with my camera, and it did not work. There is something wrong with the USB cable. Don't give up on the toy until you try another cable. It might work for you too!
My Pal Violet is great. It was so easy to plug into my computer and download more songs and to have it say her name, and sing a song with her name and all her favorite things in it. My daughters name is Alyssa and the mypal violet sings and says her name so clear. I would highly recommend it and will be giving these out to all the little ones for christmas thats on my list.
I was going to buy another similar toy but this caught my eye, my favorite color is purple. I looked at it and thought it was the perfect toy for my now 5 month old. I read that it would say your child's name and thought to myself, "Oh, it wont say my baby's name." Boy was I fooled. My daughter's name is Sanaya and it says her name so well. I was so excited i just kept pressing the paws, lol. There is a different spelling of her name but I changed that. Even though she is just 5 months old, i like that she hears it say and spell her name. Whoever designed this toy is amazing. I could just literally hug them. :)
This toy is absolutely adorable! I highly recommend this toy from ages 1-5, for sure. It superceeded my expectations based on the price. I got my nephew one for Christmas and I fall in love with it. I went back and got my 2 year the girl "Violet" and she loves it.
It was very easy to download, maybe 10 mins. tops. My daughters name is spelled a little different so I wasn't sure if it would have her name. It didn't have her spelling but it did have it in a different spelling. Being you can listen to the name before downloading it, I picked the name that sounded like hers but changed the spelling of her name in the box. So when Violet spells her name out, she says it right. I total love seeing her little face light up when Violet says her name... She is even spelling her name with her new puppy. It's way to cute! The puppy's voice is very soft also. It says everything very clear. I have to say this was one of the best toys she got for Christmas. My 5 year old said she wanted one because it's so personalized. Great toy
I got this on black friday for a Christmas present for my daughter. I program it already and it is so cute I want to give it to her now. LOL It say her name which is spelled different but it has a list of names that are similar and said the same. Like her name is spelled Gabryelle instead of Gabrielle. It even sings a song were it spells her name and when it first started I thought it would spell it with the i cause that is the name I had to pick on how to say her name and it didn't. It spelled it with the y. I was very happy. It was so easy to program and set up.
My mother bought Violet for my daughter when she was only a few months old. She is now 14 months old and Violet is like her best friend. She sleeps with Violet every night and she knows exactly which paw to press for bedtime music. It is so great because you are able to customize Violet to your child's liking. You choose favorite color, song, food, and can also customize it to say (and sing) your childs name. It is overall the best toy that my daughter has.
I purchased Violet for my one year old granddaughter. I am impressed at how simple it was to hook up to the computer and download her name, favorite food and color and I liked that I could pick out daytime songs and nighttime songs to download. It only took a minute. My granddaughters name is Jacki and Violet says her name very clearly and uses it often. She will get this for Christmas and I am sure she will love it. I think her sisters will also. I know I do.
I bought this item for my niece last year for Christmas. I carefully got it out of the box, took out all of the computer accessories, and set it up on my computer. I read several reviews on it prior to purchasing it, and knew that Violet sang the child's name, but I was really worried it would not have the spelling of my niece's name (Maddison). To my surprise, it did (as well as many others)! The program to set it up was easy to use. I got it all set up, then turned it completely off, carefully arranged all of the items back into their original places in the packaging, and wrapped it up. Christmas morning, she opened it up, I flipped the switch, and instantly Violet was singing her name and mentioning her favorite color and food! It is a perfect gift for toddlers!! Here it is a year later, and she is STILL playing with it!! I highly recommend it, it's the PERFECT gift!!!
Violet can be personalized. Cute toy with educational value. A must for any child.
We got my almost 1 year old daughter this for Christmas and she LOVES it! Her name is Kamryn so my husband thought maybe if we spell it different the dog will say it right.. well we got to listen to how the dog says it BEFORE we downloaded to the dog. And it was perfect! I also love how it says her name.. And I also think it should be priced higher for the value. Some of the songs i've never heard of.. But it's something new for me to hear.. not the same old songs and sayings over and over again! I had to show my whole family this dog and they thought it was just adorable! I like it so much that I want one for myself!
My daughter received this for Christmas ... It was vey easy to set up and it speaks her name very clearly (Makenzie) she is 19 mos, now my older daughter who is 3 wants one b/c she likes that the puppy says a name, lol. I am going to purchase one for her in the near future. The only down side is that the songs are just melodies and they do not have lyrics to them, but I will get over it, lol!
I got Violet and Scot for my grandchildren last Christmas and my grandchildren are still playing and sleeping with them.
My oldest daughter, who is now 3 y/o, got this toy her first Christmas and everywhere with us. It was great to know that with her name we could still get Violet to say it...Illah, you have to do some searching for a child with a difficult name, but well worth it. When daughter number two came along 16 months later, we bought Scout. And yes, we have the collection of other Leap Frog toys. This is the most important gift for a new mommy, I have been to 5 baby showers and this is part of thier gift. Worth the money! I think I have only changed the batteries twice in each Pal.
I was thrilled when I got this for my granddaughter, who just turned 1. I wasn't familiar with the LeapFrog line of products, until this purchase! My Son and I had so much fun downloading all the little extras, and personalizing it for her!! I highly recommend this product!
We bought this for our daughter when she was 6 months old and she is now 2 years old and still loves Violet. We customized the learning games with our daughter's name, favorite food, animal and color. Violet also teaches her feelings and emotions and my daughter mimics them along with Violet. She loves it when Violet says her name. She also sleeps with it every night. We put bedtime music on it and she presses the selection she wants and goes right to sleep. We now have a 4 month old and we plan on buying her one as well. We seldom have to change the batteries in it. Has good battery life. Thanks to LeapFrog for creating such a wonderful learning product for kids.
My daughter got this for her first birthday. She absolutly loves it! She cracks up when it says her name. Even my 3 year old son loves it! At night I lay my daughter in bed with violet and the night time music for 10 min and she asleep before the music is over. We have to take it everywhere we go. My friends son is turning one sonn and I am buying him the boy one. I love the songs that sing and spell out my daughters name, favorite color, favorite food and animal!
we have the my pal violet and it is amazing you can choose what you want for songs and how to spell your childs name and its all very simple just plug in the cord that is provided into the computer and download the connect site and choose your settings its so simple and well worth your time.
This doggie is adorable! 100's of names and nicknames to choose from. I bought it for my 2 yr old niece for Christmas and was able to program it with her name without destroying the packaging....so when she opened it and pressed his paw she was so surprised to hear her name! Absolutely adorable!!!
Just got a violet for my daughter when she turned one. She loves it! Laughs. Dances with violet. Sings with violet. Claps with violet. My three year old has a scout that he still loves. Now my five year old is begging for his own scout. It is popular with all three children and they think it is wonderful that the toy knows their name! Highly recommend! Great for a first birthday gift!
