But wait; there’s more: children can respond to their parents without need for a We Chat account, as they can send voice messages to their parents via the stuffed animal.
Chinese toilet seat maker Topseat is now selling more than 2 million seats annually on the Western market with 80% of those sales occurring in Germany and Switzerland, reports state newspaper People's Daily, citing a public We Chat account in Guizhou.
