First we had the original Fijit Friends, Willa, Logan, Serafina and Sage. These little cuties sing, dance and liked nothing more than a good chat. Then came the Fijit Newbies, Tia, Zia, Zinzie and Tika. They can do all the things the original Fijits can do but with a few extras. When you put a Newbie close to a Fijit Friend and press the head the two cuties will begin to interact.
Last but not least come the new Fijit Friends Yippits, Scooch, Skippa, Patter and Plooki. These little guys are pets for the Fijits. The Yippits can do all kinds of fun tricks and the best thing is that you can actually teach them to do stuff.
The original Fijit has voice recognition and so do the Yippits. All have a clap sensor, for example if you clap twice the little Yippit will spin around. At present they can do six pre-set tricks but the important thing to remember is that this is progressive play which means that the more you play with your Yippits and the more you train with them then the better they will perform the trick over time. Just like a real pet!
The Yippits will come with instructions on how to teach them and how to activate the six basic tricks so you don’t need to learn anything. As with all the Fijits music and dancing is very important and so each Yippit will also come with three songs, one of them being the, “I love to dance” song.
A totally new feature to these Fijits is the very first introduction of game play. Yep, now your BFF will be able to play games. Each Yippit will come with two games; a match-the-pattern game and a fetch-the-light game. Both games involve interaction with your Yippit through sound and touch.
The interaction between a Fijit and a Yippit is very simple. Just have both cuties next to one another and the press the Yippits head. The Yippit will then make a barking sound and then move around. Immediately after that the Fijit Friend will respond by bowing its head and saying something real adorable. Play around in this mode and you will discover all kinds of fun stuff.
Just like the other Fijits these Yippits get tired too and when they are asleep you can hear them snoring away.
