A birthday gift that we love- My Pal Violet!

My daughter, Vivian, turned 1 this past Tuesday. It's still hard to believe that my baby is so old! 

She's been having lots of fun celebrating her birthday so far- we started out the celebrating back on May 23rd when we had a family birthday party after we dedicated her at church. Then we had her actual birthday with cake and grandparents on Tuesday and tomorrow is the party with her friends! This is why I only throw birthday parties for my kids every 5 years! Too much celebrating!

Vivian's received a lot of wonderful gifts and some adorable clothes. Our family and friends are so very generous! I wanted to write about one of the gifts that she is especially loving- her Leapfrog My Pal Violet!

This is such a cute toy- it's super soft and huggable.  So it's great even before all the fancy features come into use! Violet has a hidden USB port, so you can attach her to your computer and personalize her.  I was able to tell Violet what Vivian's favorite animal and foods are and chose what songs I wanted Violet to play. Now she plays the songs that I like, and she includes Vivian's name and preferences in the activities and songs.  

My Pal Violet is designed for kids 6-36 months. Ethan is about 34 months old and he's definitely intrigued by Violet as well, so I'd say that's an accurate age range.  My Pal is also available as a green puppy named Scout, for the little boy in your life.

We love Leapfrog- all the products that we've purchased and used have been so great!

Disclosure: I was not compensated in any way for this post and received no product for review. Just wanted to write about a toy that we received from a friend as a birthday gift and that we love!

Happy Birthday, Vivian!! I have to say that my daughter has had her My Pal Scout for over a year now and it still rates up there as one of her very favorite toys ever. Just last weekend she was spelling her name with the help of Scout - wonderful toy!!
