A mini review of the Talkatoo:
Earlier in the school year, I sent my son a note in his lunchbox. “I love you!” He came home and admonished me for sending him such an “embarrassing” message.
But at the same time he then commented that maybe I could send him with something a little cooler next time.
He’s in first grade and especially in the beginning of the year was still learning how to read, so I had to keep the messages simple for him to be able to read them. I also had to get creative as I didn’t want to say anything that wouldn’t pass his “not embarrassing” test. He loved it. Each day he’d comment about my messages.
Then I found out about this neat little product called Talkatoo. It can be either a charm that hangs off their backpack or lunchbox, or for girls it can be a necklace. It’s a small product with a recorder inside so you can record your voice leaving the a voice message! The kids can then play it back on the bus or at lunch or recess.
My son has gotten such a kick out of this product. He knows how to erase and re-record. He listens to my message on the morning bus and then he and his friends leave messages of their own. It’s a lot of fun and I love that he gets to hear my voice telling him something encouraging each day.
Get a Talkatoo for $16.99 and you can get either a necklace or charm. The designs are adorable. My son has the green monster clip.
