Connecting generations used to be a simple part of life. Until I was 14, I lived close by my grandparents. I spent a LOT of time with them. When I was 14, we moved from upstate New York to SW Florida. The days of being close by were over. In order to remain close, true effort had to be made. Thankfully, my Pap and Gram saw the importance of this. They regularly visited us in Florida. They made phone calls at least weekly. And my Gram sent me mail quite often.
My children’s generation is a bit different. It seems like so many families are spread out all over the country. My family is no different. My husband and I decided to move to a more rural area in 2004. We left SW Florida and moved to Tennessee, leaving family behind. At the time, my folks were full-time RV’ers and visited us every 6 months or so.
My folks have now settled once again in their home state of New York. They still make a trip to visit us about twice per year. And weekly phone calls are the norm for us. Our two oldest children well remember living in Florida with their Pappy and Grammy nearby. But, my two youngest children didn’t have that luxury. Natalie was 4 and Mary was 1 when we moved. While phone calls and visits help, we are always looking for ways to keep in touch.
While shopping at WalMart the other day, we found these super cute new stuffed animals, CloudPets™. Intrigued, we picked up the super cute puppy CloudPet™. We grabbed three AA batteries (required for use) and took him home with us. I wasn’t sure what we’d do with him, but he was just too adorable to leave at the store.
Inspiration struck when we were about to leave for our trip to visit family in New York. Grandparents Day is coming soon (September 13th this year!) and I’m always looking for a fun gift to give. We tucked the puppy and batteries into the suitcase and went on our trip.
How fun it was for Mary to gift her Pappy and Grammy with the CloudPet™ puppy! “Derek” now lives with them. We can send messages to them via “Derek” and know that they’ll be surprised every time the heart blinks. The heart blinks whenever a new message is sent.
This is indeed a new, one-of-a-kind product that keeps loved ones in touch when far away. I can see these CloudPets™ being useful for so many people! Children with far away family members. Maybe a deployed parent? A new college student? Maybe a long-distance relationship? A traveling spouse? How fun will it be to see that blinking heart, knowing that there is a new message waiting for you!
You can add multiple people through the parental controls and free app that is downloaded for your CloudPets™ to work properly. The great thing is that YOU control who can send messages to your CloudPet™.
