Mattel IM-Me

Mattel IM-Me

It's not often that I report on a gadget made by, ahem, Mattel. Usually I like to report on things like mobile electronics, and Mattel is best known as the makers of He-man.

Well, it looks like they are trying to break into the mobile electronics market with the IM-Me, a little text-messaging device with limited (and I do mean limited) capacity. The IM-Me is designed to work within the range of that little included USB dongle that you see there, and parents have control over who can be added to their daughter's circle of text-messaging friends.

I suppose the purpose of this is to give your daughter a pink text-messenger, and keep her as far away from predators as possible. The price is about $65 USD, but I can't help but wonder how well this one will go over.

    I have a couple of questions. How many come in a package? 1 or 2? Also, is it ONLY from anywhere in the household? I mean, can it do it to neighbors, someone in a different house, a different state? Those are my only questions…Thanks!

    I got the IM-ME the other day abd it is so cool! Know wonder it was so expensive! Most people think it is just a waste of money but it can really reach far places! If you want a text messenger that is a good one, get the IM-ME

    If you are familiar with the [url=http://www.allniketrainers.com]puma trainers[/url], you can easily adopt to new model called the Suede Mid Velcro. It has almost the same design as the Clyde but with a sturdy stance which was brought by the series of Velcro straps along the midfoot. This extended Clyde design features the claw logo on the side panel with the Puma branding along the midsection and tongue. Being a lace-free mid top shoe, it fully trusts the Velcro straps as the source of support and grip.and ?by the way,Over the years we have seen so many great [url=http://www.allniketrainers.com]nike trainers[/url] releases that it can sometimes be hard to remember them all and sometimes we forget about them after a little while.
