Chatman: A Computer Friend for the Whole Family!

I have had so much fun playing with my Chatman that I received for review. This little yellow guy has made me laugh out loud at all his funny little comments, his movements, and just the fact that I have him with me whenever I am on the computer chatting or surfing or just playing games.

Now I know I am not a kid, but I have enjoyed him almost as much as the two boys to whom I lent him to try out. They are 8 and 10 and had never heard of Chatman before, so he was a learning experience for us all. I let them try it out first to see what they thought. They did all the installation themselves while I looked on, but I am pretty confident that I could have done it as well. They connected him to Facebook and Skype, and had a great time playing with him and enjoying his company while they did everyday things on the computer.

The Chatman is a USB device and supports Windows and Mac OSX. You can create a personality for your own Chatman, boy or girl, download all sorts of applications, play games and even chat with your friends. You also get a gaming and video website subscription for free. You can teach the Chatman new things, and he can also help with homework and online searching.

The boys really enjoyed this gadget. The Chatman is geared for ages 6-12, and parents can feel safe in knowing their child is protected while on the internet. My favorite app is the Reminder App. I put in a few reminders and was very glad when I was reminded of those events. When you have kids, it’s hard to keep track of who goes where or when or what needs to be done during the week, and having that extra person -- or in this case, extra gadget -- to help out is one less thing you have to worry about.

Now if only he would wash my dishes and do my laundry! Hmmm. For all the information you need on this cool guy, go to Chatman is also available at Toys ‘R’ Us. Like their Facebook page for special promotions and news!
