Teddy bears, unicorns, and other animals have you ever wondered how to make a stuffed toy talk?
I mean sure there are toys on the market that do that BUT they may not be the toys your child already has. The lovely your child clings to every moment, the plush that is with them every night at bed, can they talk? When my boys were little, my husband and I would hold the animals above our head, while we hid below, and we’d project our voices as if the stuffed animals were really talking. That would work when we were home with them in the same room but we didn’t have a solution to how to make a stuffed toy talk when we weren’t right next to them.
Now there’s a solution to How to Make a Stuffed Toy Talk and my little guy could not be more thrilled. He says, “Having a talking stuffy would be great. We could talk, tell secrets, and chat. It would be so much fun.”
Introducing Chappet, a device that makes any stuffed toy or nearly any toy able to talk and interact with your child.
Chappet is a Bluetooth speaker encased in a two-inch wide yellow button. It’s controlled by a FREE smartphone app. It allows parents to interact with their children through their stuffed animals during creative playtime. Chappet supports more than 1,000 prerecorded phrases, features 20 pre-recorded songs and stories, and its auto chat function can mimic the words a child shares with it in conversation, allowing children to interact with their favorite toy in an entirely new way.
Here’s how to make a stuffed toy talk with Chappet.
Initial Steps before you can make a stuffed toy talk with Chappet
- First, purchase the Chappet from Amazon. It is available for purchase exclusively on Amazon for $54.99.
- Before the Chappet’s first use you’ll need to fully charge the device. While it’s charging get the free Chappet App on the Apple Store or Google Play.
- Attach the Chappet to a stuffed toy or animal with the loop on the back of the button. The button can be sewn on or tightly attached with a string around the stuffed animal’s neck like a necklace. It does not include the string.
- After your Chappet is charged connect it to a smartphone device with Bluetooth.
- Open the app and select a voice for your Chappet. There are three to select from. You can hear each one before making a selection.
- Register the name you want the Chappet to use when addressing your child. You can enter a name up to 20 characters. After you’ve entered that you’ve completed the initial steps. You can add up to 10 names.
When you are done using the Chappet app make sure to turn off the Bluetooth connection between the Chappet and the smartphone device. Otherwise, it’s possible some sounds from your smartphone may be projected through the Chappet button. Also to note, Chappet does not need a battery since it is rechargeable. There is a tiny port where the button can be charged. A small button on the back allows the button to be turned off when not in use.
