Be sure to fly the cat in an open area and not too close to other people. Also, do not put your fingers or any other objects in the propellers.
Try replacing batteries and make sure there are no cracks in the propellers. If there is a crack in the propeller, do not operate toy. If your cat is still not flying, please contact Mattel Consumer Services.
Hello Barbie™ may occasionally encounter issues sending and receiving conversations. The issues may be based on signal strength, roaming, or Internet congestion. Usually the issues are brief and Hello Barbie™ will resume operation quickly. This can also occur when Hello Barbie™ has been in connection mode for along time or has timed out after a long period of inactivity. Turning Hello Barbie™ off and on again will enable the doll to resume normal activity.
This may also happen if Hello Barbie™ loses its WiFi connection. Please take the following steps:
Close the Companion App
Go to your devise's WiFi settings
Reconnect to your WiFi network
In addition, you may get this message if Hello Barbie's batteries are low. If this is the case, please place Hello Barbie™ back on her charger.
The battery pack is located on the doll’s back. Remove the skirt and vest, bend the doll’s arms gently if needed. Unscrew the battery cover at the back with a Philips head screwdriver and replace. Be sure to dispose of batteries properly.
The joystick directions match the direction that Barbie is facing, rather than the direction that the operator is facing. If Barbie is facing away from you and you move the joystick forward, Barbie will fly away from you. If she is facing towards you and you move the joystick forward, she will move towards you.
