“I can learn your name!”
My Pal Violet

Give learning a personal touch with a soft, cuddly puppy pal. Violet is a plush, interactive learning toy that can be personalised to learn your child’s name and favourite songs, colours, food and more. Just connect the pup to a computer and start personalizing. Then, turn the teaching over to Violet and explore first words, numbers, daily routines and feelings. As children play with Violet, friendly activities encourage them to talk and sing along. This interaction can help develop early language skills as children start down the path to literacy. My Pal Violet is appropriate for children ages 6 to 36 months.

  • Learning about numbers: Children are introduced to number names and number order through counting games and activities.
  • Introducing Daily Routines: Learning about daily routines help children develop a sense of time and sequence.
  • Learning about Feelings: Even very young children can begin to recognise and express their feelings, as well as the feelings of others.
  • “Press my paw to play music, songs or games.”
    “Press my paw to play music, songs, or games.”
    Play, Laugh, and Learn

    Enjoyable music, sing-along songs, and lullabies are always available at the press of a paw. Press the Daytime Songs paw to sing along with up to five different, active, upbeat songs. When children are ready for new challenges, parents can connect Violet to a computer and select, download and swap in new tunes. To play learning games with Violet, press the Activities paw. The puppy starts the conversation by asking about your child’s favourite things, but the interaction doesn’t stop there.

    Violet has lots to say, and this includes silly surprises like counting hiccups and pretending to be other animals, as well as more thoughtful communications, like talking about feelings. (For example, Violet might say: “I feel happy; show me your biggest smile.”) When it’s time to wind down from the day’s adventures, press the Lullabies paw to hear soothing lullaby music. These mellow tunes transition from a day of active learning to quiet naptime or night time. Once again, parents can choose and change the songs found in the Lullabies paw by downloading up to five new melodies and setting Scout for 2, 5, or 10 minutes of blissful bedtime music.

    Personalise the Learning Fun

    Violet is here to help children learn, and you can teach her a few tricks, too. Select your child’s name from a list of thousands, and Violet will express his love and friendship by the name you select. Personalise the learning even more by customizing Violet with your child’s favourite animal, food and colour. Your pal also stores and plays up to five daytime melodies and five night time lullabies from a selection of more than 30 tunes you can download to Violet.

    Parents can connect to the LeapFrog Learning Path for customised learning insights and ideas to expand the learning. For each LeapFrog toy on your child’s path, you can see the skills explored during play and learn about what comes next. With Learning Path, you can get customised emails with learning tips and creative ideas to enrich and inspire more learning adventures and, find additional learning toys that match your child’s passions and interests.

    Fantastic - I decided to get this for my 14 month old daughter last week - she was asleep when i got it and she was given it once I had uploaded her name, favourite colour, animal and food, so we have a song about a pink monkey that eats chocolate! and a few tunes she knows - she was delighted with it. She has mastered the controls on the paws - even though she turns violet on and off every so often. The bedtime tunes are very soothing and can be set for 2,5 and 10 minutes, violet's collar light doesn't flash whilst in this mode.

    Violet is also nice and soft and cuddly.

    Violet is a very polite puppy too, she says please,thank you and may I

    I'm sure violet will become a firm favourite - certainly makes my little sweetie smile lots

    A family friend gave my daughter this for her 1st birthday. She loves it. There is a night time setting with gentle music on a timer that I put on every night after story time. It settles her to sleep. The personalised messages and songs always brings a smile to her face. She's now 16 months and still adores it.

    We already had the My Pal Scout (green version) for my son and although it was never a favourite it was quite fun and he liked playing with it occasionally. Violet however is a big hit with my daughter (currently 19 months), she loves singing and dancing along to the play time songs (some are pre-prgrammed and can't be changed but you can then select a certain number of other ones from the Leap Frog website including the Wheels on the Bus, Incy Wincy Spider, Happy and you Know it etc). I was a bit disappointed given that you can program it with the child's name that Happy Birthday is just an instrumental, as it was a birthday present we were hoping that it could sing her name but it doesn't.

    You can program in the child's favourite animal, food and colour and it will sing a little song about those; it also sings a song spelling out the child's name which is OK as long as the correct name/spelling is on Leap Frog's list. Both of my children's names are there however my own (Vicky) is not, not in any form of the word, only Victoria which is not my name. This didn't cause us a problem as it's not for me but be sure to check that the child's name you want is on the list before you give it to them (I'm not sure if there's any way to check from Leap Frog's website or not?). The installation is a bit clunky, and the customisations are quite limited but for the price you can't really complain (except perhaps for the name issue but then it's impossible for them to list all names, especially more unusual ones).

    The best feature for us is the bedtime music (again you can chose which songs are on the toy from the website), you can select it to play lullabies for either 2, 5 or 10 minutes and it will say something like 'snuggle up' or 'goodnight' with the child's name before it starts.

    This is the second of the My Puppy Pals I have bought, after the one I got for my daughter was a huge hit with her cousin as well.

    On the plus side: The dog is a nice size for a 1-year old to cuddle, the buttons in the paws and tummy are easy to press so she can operate it herself. It keeps my daughter occupied especially on car journeys when she normally gets bored. We use the singing paw for play time, while the lullaby music was a lifeline when we stayed away recently.

    On the negative side: The name database is not huge. My daughter's name was in the databse, and we were offered two pronunciations. Only they were both the same, incorrect, pronunciation in either a male or female voice. It does not "learn your name" so if your child has an uncommon name which is not in the database, you have to use it in the name-off mode.

    The selection of songs is very limited, especially the sing-along songs which are the bit my daughter likes best. You can have up to 5 songs loaded at a time, and I think there are fewer than a dozen to choose from. "Happy and you know it" has two verses, "clap your paws" and "wag your tail" - would have been better sticking with things children could actually do! Old Macdonald has only one verse, "puppy", although to my nephew it sounded like "nothing" and he got quite upset at Old Macdonald having nothing on his farm.

    Most annoyingly, LeapFrog seem to have followed VTech and others down the path of thinking that "offkey" equals "childishly charming".

    Don't let the negatives put you off - this is really an excellent toy and I am very glad that we bought it. It is one of my daughter's favourites, and it has quite a long useful period as she has had it from a year while her cousin is 2 1/2 and still loves it. In terms of children's toys, that is quite a good lifespan. It is quite battery-hungry but that seems par for the course for toys.

    I normally buy my 18-month-old wooden and fabric toys, and try to steer clear of cheap plastic stuff, or electronic things. After reading the reviews on Violet however, I found myself clicking "add to basket". It arrived and as was a present for my daughter's birthday I immediately plugged it in and was amazed at how easy it was to choose the different songs for violet to play. There's a great selection and you can also put your little one's name into the songs, by clicking it off an extensive list.

    My daughter and I love everything about this toy. The bedtime mode, the different songs, the fact it's easy to work by simply squeezing the different paws, the look and feel, the volume is just right, the fact you can put your child's favourite animal/food/colour into the songs and despite being electronic is extremely robust! My daughter loves to sit violet on her beanbag, press the music paw and dance round the living room to the tunes. It is adorable!

    The ONLY possible gripe I have is that when you choose your child's name, as it comes off a pre-recorded list, it's in an american accent but the rest of the song is in an english accent?! So it goes something like "me... and my frienddddd... POAPEE" (my daughter's name is Poppy), which is a little irritating, and also that if your child has an unusual name it may not even be on the list! But that is not enough to take off a star from my rating. Extremely reasonable price too! I have bought 3 more as gifts! All in all, a fantastic toy!
