My youngest grandson will be turning four in a couple of weeks (yikes – I can’t be THAT old)!  I’m thinking hard about what to get him for his birthday.  You know what I’m talking about, the perfect gift. The one where his eyes light up and maybe a squeal (or three) escapes from his lips as he does the happy dance.  Yeah, that kind.

Yes, I’m THAT person who wants to find THE perfect, meaningful gift, and not get him something that will be a complete waste of time and money, played with once and dropped by the wayside.

Here’s the birthday boy taking a break from the pool during our vacation a couple of weeks ago.  Isn’t he adorable?


OK – you twisted my arm – one more shot of the birthday boy!  You know grandparents can never share just one photo!

CloudPets - The Perfect Gift

CloudPets™ Gift

Whenever I ask Tegan what he wants for his birthday, it’s something completely different from the last time. I knew right away that I was on my own when it came to searching for his birthday present.

A few days ago I was headed to the toy department in Walmart to search for that perfect gift when I spotted a colorful display of CloudPets™ in the front of the store near the registers.  Of course, I had to stop and check um’ out.  When I realized everything these pets could do, I knew I had hit the jackpot.

CloudPets™ - The Perfect Gift

Description of CloudPets™ and How It Works

I’m sure you’re wondering what CloudPets™ can do, right?  Here’s a brief description of how they work:

  • CloudPets™ friends can record and send messages from anywhere in the world.
  • A parent (or loved one) receives the message on their free CloudPets™ App, approves it and delivers it wirelessly to the pet.
  • When the CloudPet™ has a message, it’s heart blinks.  Squeeze its paw and the message plays.
  • You can also record a message by squeezing its paw.  The message is sent to the nearby device and from there, it can be delivered to a CloudsPets™ friend anywhere in the world.


Fun Games, Lullabies and More

My grandson, Tegan, will also be able to play fun learning games and listen to lullabies or stories as he drifts off to sleep.


I really like the fact that it has built-in parental security (only invited friends and family can send a message), long battery life (3 AA batteries needed) and works with the devices you love.

The Perfect Gift - CloudPets™

Back to my shopping trip at Walmart:  I had found the perfect gift, but then came the hard part.  Which pet would my grandson like the best?

  • Kitty
  • Bear
  • Puppy
  • Bunny
  • Unicorn

I finally settled on the puppy AND remembered to get the 3 AA Energizer batteries. As soon as I got home from Walmart I downloaded the CloudPets™ app to my smartphone.  After placing my grandson’s new CloudPet™ in a big, colorful gift bag, I hid the gift in my closet to await the birthday party.

CloudPets™ - The Perfect Gift

Should I sing Happy Birthday as my first message?


I’ll have to ask my daughter to keep Tegan away from this blog post in order to keep his gift a surprise. I’m always amazed that my grandkids LOVE to look at my blog posts, especially when it’s all about them.

I’m relieved that I found the perfect gift and am excited that I’ll be able to send my grandson a message no matter where I am.  If I’m traveling for work, vacationing or whenever I’m missing him more than usual, I can send him his own personal message.

This new, one-of-a-kind product can be found at select Walmart stores and will soon be available nationwide. It will help you keep in touch with your loved ones if you live far away or just traveling far away. Who would you send messages to using  CloudPets™?

He’s going to love it! What a neat idea!

First of all, your grandson is just so adorable! I think I have seen these at a nearby Walmart but did not know exactly what they did. How amazing that you can use them for messaging. What will they come up with next?

Heather September 16, 2015 - 12:24 pm

I think I’m going to have to get these for my kids and their God Parents so they can connect a little more since they live in Texas. These are great ideas! I was wondering if it would work with little ones that can’t read, and I’m glad to hear its voiced messages. I think that is awesome!!

Cynthia @craftoflaughter September 16, 2015 - 1:50 pm

The puppy is adorable. I love the idea of connecting with voice! Thanks for sharing!

CloudPets are so adorable! And what a great way to stay in touch with loved ones – so much more personal than a text message!

It’s so cool that they can record and send messages. The animals themselves are really cute too!

My kids seen the commercial for CloudPets just the other day. I think it’s a great way for loved ones to communicate with each other. Love the puppy dog! He is the cutest!

What a perfect gift for your grandson! I know he will just love it. [client]

Those are really cute. 🙂 All our family is out of town and I think my kids cousin might like this.

aaronica (the crunchy mommy) September 16, 2015 - 9:44 pm

i need to get this to leave at my moms house. she would get the biggest kick out of getting messages from my girls!

Bri September 16, 2015 - 9:46 pm

I like that you can record messages from anywhere and can be heard through the cloudpet. If you are a parent that travels a lot this would be a great gift for your child.

Valerie@Occasionally Crafty September 16, 2015 - 10:38 pm

I saw these at Walmart and thought, why didnt’ they have this when my kids were younger? We live far apart from any family (like a thousand miles or more from both sets of grandparents). It sure would have been great to have something like that!

Erlene September 16, 2015 - 10:49 pm

I saw this on tv and I wish these were around my kids were younger. My youngest is in middle school and she even thought these were cool.

Adrienne September 17, 2015 - 6:38 am

These are just the cutest. I’m sure kids absolutely love them, but I can also see adults being a fan of these as well. Thanks for sharing!

Franc Ramon September 17, 2015 - 11:07 am

I like the concept of being able to send voice messages via the cloudpets. It can really warm someone’s day plus the cloudpets also looks so cute.

Cara (@StylishGeek) September 17, 2015 - 6:53 pm

That is so adorable! I can see giving this to a niece or nephew that may want something to hug when they are flying for the first time.

CYNTHIA NICOLETTI September 19, 2015 - 10:32 am

I love this !! Cloud pets are adorable. A great way to send someone a special present

Ricci September 19, 2015 - 11:41 am

I have heard of Cloud Pets and I think they are a great idea!! I would love to get these for my nieces/nephews!!

I havent seen these in our local walmart yet but I’m going to look for them again. My daughter would love to have one of these with her cousins. They live about 1200 miles apart.
