Did you follow our family on our big road trip this summer? We posted photos and maps of our travels on Facebook. We also gave you some insight into what works for us on the road. Jay and I really want our kids to have the same experience bonding with one another and with us, as we had on road trips when we were kids. For better or worse, you REALLY get to know people when you travel. For that reason, we limited the use of technology on our two week trip. I’m not saying we didn’t allow it, we did! Lulu loves our tablet devices and smartphones, we just made sure that the majority of the time was technology free.
I really, really wish that we had welcomed Puppi Love, (the new creation of Infantino from the HappiTaps line) into our family BEFORE our summer travels. The soft, playful stuffed animal like toy fits comfortably in the hands of a toddler while protecting your phone and giving life to the phone by way of an interactive app available in the iTunes store. I love the way that Infantino has combined traditional stuffed animals with technology and learning to create a winning product!
Puppi Love tells stories, helps with counting and the ABC’s, teaches colors, allows kids to feed Puppi, play hide and seek and more! The app download includes many of these features but additional features, stories and songs can be added for a nominal fee.
Puppi Love is now the newest travel companion in our family! We are taking “her” on every trip we go on! Our daughter is in love with this adorable toy and is learning her ABC’s with the upgraded application. As we prepare for our big Thanksgiving trip, which includes an airplane, we are searching for ways to keep two year old Lulu, entertained enough so that no one else on the plane is bothered! There’s also an adorable teddy bear version called Beary Happi.
Would you all laugh at me if I just kept Puppi Love on the phone all the time? This soft case is just soooo adorable.
I have received Puppi Love from Infantino to facilitate my review. There are affiliate links in this post. When you purchase from IWK affiliate links, you help support the website financially.
