For the past few weeks, my little guy has been playing with two products from Fisher Price. The first is the adorable Laugh & Learn™ Smart Bounce & Spin Pony! It's a great developmental toy for children ages 12-36 months! When I first set it up in our living room, Sam wasn't too sure about it. He pretty much avoided it until his big brother showed him all the sounds it could make! After brushing off his fear, he had enough courage to throw one leg over this cute little pony and he began rockin' out to crazy tunes. Those crazy tunes are still stuck in my head. But that's not bad! I kind of like them! Out of our "living room collection" of toys, this is Sam's favorite by far. It is interactive with the television, but Sam has yet to try this feature. We are trying to limit viewing at least until he is two! I love this pony and I get such a kick out of seeing Sam get so excited! This toy is great because it can be used in a number of ways. It all begins with a bounce, which is easy to do! The friendly pony bounces and spins with your child, and rewards your child with playful music and sounds, even without the TV. When you set up the wireless TV connection, baby’s actions make big things happen on screen! There are three levels of learning and this "grows" with your child! It requires 3 AAA and 3 C batteries. I will say that there is a definite squeak to the pony when your child is rockin' out! It wasn't too bothersome because we were all caught up in Sam's great time, but it can be loud. If you are trying to watch television, this might be better off in another room. This is one toy where the fun factor more than makes up for the annoyances!
Sam has also been playing with a Laugh & Learn™ Fun With Friends™ Musical Table! My parents bought one for Logan several years ago and while the features have changed, this toy is just as fun as ever. I love the updated features! This table is packed with things to do! We all gather around this table and take turns playing. The legs are removable so I can lay it flat on the couch or my lap, or we can play with it on the floor! The table is very secure and Sam has even tried climbing on top of it! No wobbles, no worries, yet! I keep this table in Sam's room and he plays with it often. When he first received it, he played with it constantly and he would have a tantrum if we moved it. This toy is great for toddler side by side play too! Each side of the table has an entire interactive learning center with lights and a friendly character who invites your baby to play, encouraging movement and exploration all around the table. If your child wanders away, the table will gently call your child back with a burst of sound and lights! Your child can learn letters, numbers, counting, first words, colors, shapes, opposites, animals and much more—in English and Spanish! You and your little one will enjoy sing-along songs, tunes, real instrument sounds and a variety of music styles. It requires 3 AA batteries for play.
