Mardles hugARmals are 30cm cuddly toys with a difference! Harlow received the fabulous Unicorn to try out and of course she loved it. So what do hugARmals do? As well as being sparkly, soft and fluffy they also come to life using the free Mardles app on Apple/ Android devices. For Harlow's Unicorn you simply scan it's special hoof, after downloading the app, and it brings the Unicorn to life in digital form.
Here's some quick and easy steps to follow; 1 - got to your app store and download the free Mardles App. 2 - Open the App and point your device's camera at the badge on your character's foot to unlock your new 4D friend. 3 - Point your device at a flat surface then tap the star on screen to bring your character to life and use the controls to have fun with them.
It's very simple and easy to do plus there are some cool little features on the app. You can customise the colour of your new digital Unicorn friend using the on-screen slider or make it walk, eat, disco dance and even pirouette. Harlow loves it and finds it so easy to use the app, and once she's finished with the app she happily cuddles her Unicorn and role plays with it as well.
If you're not a Unicorn fan you can also get the hugARmals in Dragon form. I particularly love dragons and the hugARmals one is super glitzy and shiny. Being 30cm means these toys are the perfect size for little hands to play with. They are well made and quite eye catching with all their fancy colours, and I think kids love this.
As you can see from the photos my daughter loves her Unicorn hugARmal and you can get your very own from Mardles.com or Amazon. They retail for £24.99 and are definitely worth it for that extra interactivity. There's no faffing about either which I like, it's just straight forward and easy to use. It means the kids can have fun quicker!
We were sent the hugARmals Unicorn in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
