Just Look How Far We’ve Come!
Since the beginning, CloudPets have been connecting families all over the world through CloudPets Messaging. Today, we’re thrilled to announce the release of the CloudPets App 2.0, which includes an awesome learning game, “Barnyard Sounds,” and five classic lullabies that little ones can enjoy right from their CloudPets. The volume and duration can even be controlled directly from the app. And be sure to keep an eye on our Facebook page,

These new features are just the beginning, showcasing CloudPets capability for endless new
kinds of fun. Because we’re able to constantly update and create CloudPets features, the “new” never wears off. We have so many huge plans and so many incredible features currently in the works, owning a CloudPet means you always have a new surprise waiting around the bend!
So how did it all start? Like most great ideas: to fill a real human need. Back in 2011, this hectic world was much as it is today—full of busy moms and dads rushing off to work, grandparents living states away from their grandkids, and parents being deployed to the other side of the globe. Families and friends were struggling to stay connected despite regular video chats and phone calls, because something was missing—the physical element of human connection.
On the quest to somehow combine cloud technology and the physical world to help maintain the human bond, the idea to design a toy that was one part cloud communications and one part cuddly bear that kids would love was born. The first messaging toy appeared at the New York Toy Fair in February 2012, along with announcement that lullabies, games, and stories would be heading down the pike in the near future. At the toy fair, it was clear that families really wanted a fun way to stay connected! The toy walked away with a spot on the Best New Toys of the Year list
Almost four years later, CloudPets have become a powerful tool for family connectedness and fun! We hope you’ll keep in touch by visiting us on Facebook
, and YouTube
. We look forward to having you along on our journey into the bright future of family communications!
