Fijit Friends Yippits are companion toys to Fijit friends and newbies that made their debut at the Toy fair in early 2012. Given the runaway success of Fijit Friends introduced in 2011, it's easy to see why the yippits came into being. Girls love singing, dancing or talking to their fijits and with newbies and yippits, they have more dynamic high-tech toys to interact and spend time with.
Yippits are little pets for fijits that have four legs, a tail and adorable differently shaped ears. The four yippits come in different colors, namely – pink, blue, purple and light green.
Mattel, the manufacturing company, has given them interesting quirks – their face glows at times when kids play with them. These toys come equipped with clap sensors, so clapping a certain number of times gets the yippit to do a particular thing.
One of their most exciting features that aren't to be found in fijits or newbies, is how they can play games. Every yippit comes with two pre-programmed games. 'Imagine the pattern' is one game where girls have to match the pattern made by the yippit lighting up.
They'll have to press a button on the yippit in the same order to win the game. Fijit friends yippits also love to dance, by themselves or with the fijits. Each yippit comes with three songs so there's a lot of rocking music to dance to.
Children can also teach these little electronic pets tricks. When they come out of the box they don't perform the tricks very well. A child has to invest time and energy training the yippit just like they would a real pet, to get them to perform tricks flawlessly.
While all this adds to the charm of a yippit, their most endearing and clever feature, is how they actually interact with all the fijit friends.
The yippits emit sonic chirps that the fijits recognize. A fijit will respond to a sonic chirp by saying something to the yippit. The really cool part here is how the chirping yippits unlock special features in the fijits.
This brings something new to an old toy. Girls who bought a fijit friend in 2011, will find that there are special functions in their dancing fijit that they have yet to discover. The yippits unlock these features in the fijits during game play.
This is good news for parents who bought their girls a lot of fijit friends. The more children play with both yippits and fijits, the more they'll unlock in all the fijits they own. These toys have been designed for progressive play which keeps the toy interesting for a much longer time.
To sum up Fijit Friends Yippits are a fantastic addition to the Fijit friends line, promoting learning and play at the same time.
