October 9, 2006 It’s gonna be an interactive Christmas and we’ll be featuring quite a few new high-tech toys over coming months, which brings us to the Amazing Allysen – Allysen is an older sibling of the interactive Amanda, which flew off the shelves in 2005. Allysen has a larger vocabulary and engages her playmate (aka owner) as a best friend by talking about topics ranging from fashion to music. The Amazing Allysen doll recognizes and responds to key words and phrases with lifelike facial expressions and real emotions. Allysen really gets to know you, collecting information about you as you play together, then retrieving the facts from time to time and including them in conversation. Allysen will also recognize her clothing, tops and jeans, shoes, hair accessories and can hold her mobile phone to her ear. You can even choose fun ring tones for Allysen’s cell phone.
Amazing Allysen represents the next ‘Amazing’ generation. Allysen is a tween girl dressed in a cool outfit with cute embellished jeans and a reversible vest. She also has beautiful long blonde hair that you can have lots of fun styling.
