    What It Is

    Kids can play, talk, and sing with their dolls thanks to new Brightlings. There are three of these soft dolls and each says more than 100 phrases, repeats what you say, and makes music. And their faces will light up with an animated mouth as they talk and sing. There are three interactive modes. In Play mode, squeeze your Brightlings' tummy to hear it say different funny phrases or ask you a question. But you'll also hear different phrases depending on how you hold the Brightlings. Place the doll on its back, stomach, upside down, or in a quick horizontal flying motion.

    To change between the three modes, squeeze your Brightlings' hand. The second mode is Repeat. You can squeeze the Brightlings' ear to record a 15-second message, and then squeeze its tummy to hear it repeat what you said in its own voice. If you tilt the Brightlings from side to side, you'll be able to change the speed of its voice from slow and low to high-pitched and fast.

    And in Music mode, squeeze your Brightlings' ear to choose between one of six musical styles: pop, rock, jazz, opera, yodel, and beat box. The Brightlings will sing a short musical phrase in that style when you press its tummy. But help your Brightlings create a whole song by tilting the toy left, right, back, or upright to hear different musical phrases.

    You can collect Brightlings in three colors: blue, pink, and purple. Each one is sold separately.

    Is It Fun?

    Kids who like playing with dolls will think the Brightlings dolls are fun to chat with because of the wide variety of phrases and the animation of the doll's face as it talks. It's also really funny to hear what the doll will say when you move it around. We thought it was funny when we placed our Brightlings on its tummy and it "licked" the ground. Kids are really going to like the silly personality and interactivity of these cute dolls, and they can also encourage the silly play when they record their own phrases and make the doll say whatever they want. Plus, they'll have a lot of fun making music with their Brightlings and singing along.

    Who It’s For

    Brightlings are for ages 4 and up. They will make a fun and interactive doll friend for kids who like playing with dolls. Those kids will really enjoy bringing Brightlings to life through the fun interactive play features of singing, talking, and repeating what you say.

    What To Be Aware Of

    The Brightlings include three AAA batteries, but those are for the in-store try-me features, and we recommend replacing them before you play for best results.
