Amanda is a toddler who speaks, is getting potty trained, and eats the foods that toddlers love. She can recognize her "mommy's" voice and can respond after just hearing it three times! Her facial expressions reflect her emotions.
To interact with her, you must speak loudly and clearly, so she is not recommended for someone with speech impediment or is a soft talker. Also, you must be in a quiet environment to interact with her. Only speak to Amanda when she is not talking or moving her mouth or eyes.
By responding to voices, recognizing objects and showing emotions with realistic facial expressions, Amazing Amanda establishes an interactive mother-daughter bond that is unparalleled among children's toys. Her level of self-awareness is such that she can recognize her own outfits, food and beverages, toothbrush, and the like. She knows what time it is and can remind "Mommy" about things like upcoming events. She responds to stimuli with appropriate expressions and sounds, and even says "no" when she doesn't want something.
She is equipped with multiple sensors: right hand sensor, brush sensor, mouth sensor, microphone sensor, hug sensor, clothing sensor, potty sensor.
She is 20 inches tall.

To play with Amanda, there are 4 main activities (eating, sleeping, playing and going to the potty).

If you want Amanda to switch to a different activity, squeeze Amanda's left hand for approximately 7seconds at anytime and she will ask you, 'Mommy, what should we do?'
In the 'play' mode she can do funny faces, pretend (one can pretend having a birthday party), do animal talk and sing songs.
Amanda will automatically power down into Sleep Mode to save battery power, if left unattended for a long period of time. To awaken her, squeeze her right hand.
