Fisher-Price Little Superstar Sing-Along Stage

Fisher-Price Little Superstar Sing-Along Stage provides an exciting introduction to music for six months babies and up. With a large picture mirror framed by blinking lights and cartoon babies, babies and toddlers are able to play and interact with it, enjoy singing, dancing, moving and discovering themselves. There are two modes of interactive play to choose. In Mode 1, babies and toddlers can hear songs by activating one of four instruments, i.e. a drum, mini xylophone, trombone and guitar. In Mode 2, the toy encourages babies and toddlers to build a song or make their own composition and shake the magical microphone for musical sounds and a dazzling light show.

1. Babies and toddlers can learn more about cause and effect by pressing different buttons, and which button makes which sound.
2. The toy is safe to play since the wide legs prevent tipping even when babies and toddlers pull up on it to stand.
3. The toy comes with lyric cards so as babies and toddlers get older, they are able to learn to sing along with parents, too.
4. The toy also says several fun phrases, as well as the sound of cheering and applause, making babies and toddlers want to dance or sing along more and more.
5. The toy shuts off by itself. It has a volume control.

1. The mirror gets scratches easily even when being cleaned with paper towel and water.
2. The toy requires just a little bit of adult assembly, which is where we encountered our only problem: the legs need to be screwed on to the toy to allow it to stand, but the holes for the included screws were not sized properly. This made it difficult for us to manually tighten the screws satisfactorily. However, the toy was still able to stand sturdily for safe play.

Fisher-Price Laugh and Learn Learning Puppy

The Fisher-Price Laugh and Learn Learning Puppy is so cute at very good size and it serves lots of learning fun as a cuddly play pal for 6 month babies to 3 years old. It combines two modes of play, learning mode and music games with 10 lovely songs.

Babies and toddlers can learn letters, colors and parts of the body in Learning Mode through 6 hot spots on the puppy through songs and fun phrases. In Game Mode, they can enjoy six additional songs which encourage interaction. Those songs are Bingo, Pat-a-Cake, Oh Where Has My Little Dog Gone, Head Shoulders Knees and Toes, This Old Man and This Little Piggy.

1. The sounds coming out differently when babies and toddlers push some parts of puppy bodies take their attentions. For example, after they push the nose, the puppy will say nose, red nose, achoo or got my nose. It is educational and fun.
2. The mode can be chosen easily by babies and toddlers simply by pressing the button on its foot. The other parts of the body, i.e. the other foot, an ear, both hands, nose and tummy play songs or sounds when pressed.
3. The volume is not very loud so even parents take it while babies and toddlers asleep, it will not wake them up easily.

It is very sensitive and it switches the sound or unfinished song when babies and toddlers grab the toy. It makes the babies surprised and disappointed. So that would be nicer to have such a delay feature of some kind which keep the song play till it finish.
