Do not purchase this product for young babies, as this toy is VERY heavy and not suitable for playing. My baby is 6 mo and if she plays with it, she hits herself and cries as it is so heavy. Even tho its not very expensive its not suitable! Would not recommend this product, and definitely not to 3 mo as it says!!!!
BABY's FINGER GOT JAMMED IN THE BLUE KEY.....
Bought this coz it was branded and there seemed to be so much to do in the toy and the colors were great and safe....
The price was decent. The colors were great.
We cannot de link the keys . IT would have been better if we could seperate the keys
The problem is bigger than this..
The next day when the baby was playing with it, the baby started screaming with pain. We were scared to death.
BABY's FINGER WAS TRAPPED IN THE BLUE KEY
To be precise the Blue key. It moves up and down and there is gap for it to move up and down. This is where the baby's finger was trapped.
We dint know what to do and in the first look dint know where the finger was trapped. Thankfully we got the baby's finger out without damage.
The product says 3 months plus.. our baby is 7 months plus.. And the toy is not safe at all.
Please be careful about Fisher price toys

These fisher price activity keys were bought for my niece a couple of weeks ago. They are really impressive and have not only kept her amused but have served as a great source of comfort to her sore gums.
Fisher price is a name which springs to my mind when thinking of main toy manufacturers. I believe through experience with my own two children. That if you buy Fisher Price then you know you are going to get a well made and innovative toy for your child. These chunky keys are no exception.
The keys are really brightly coloured. Making them seem very bright and appealing. The colours certainly captured my nieces attention. I love the fact that these Keys are chunky in structure. This is really great as my niece can handle these keys with great ease. I honestly think that by using these keys she has improved her dexterity.
There are three keys which are attached to a white plastic fob. I am not very impressed with the strength of the fob as it feels very flimsy and I have been anxious that it is going to come apart. However, as yet it still remains intact.
The three keys are the same in shape and size but differ in both colour and activity. Each key has a different function. One key has a picture which you can flip over by using the button on the side. The next key is musical and plays certain sounds such as the doorbell ringing. The third is more the textured key. This key has circular rings attached which can be spun around the key.
My niece loves the sound key the best. She loves using this key and finds it hysterically funny when I pretend that the noise has given me a fright. She has really taken a shine to these keys and will not go anywhere without them. My sister in law attaches the plastic fob onto the pushchair and has noticed that trips out are much less stressful as she is playing with her keys and occupied.
These keys are on sale in Argos. I believe they are around the £6 price range. This does seem to me to be some what excessive for what they actually are. However, I do think that they are worth thier money.
They are so sturdy and well made. They offer both activity stimulation as well as gum relief for baby. Initially my niece was intrested in putting these keys in her mouth. However,as she is growing, she now appreciates the fun activities and sounds which accompany this toy.
I think one of the things that impresses me the most about this toy is how durable they are. Thes keys have been knawed on, thrown across the room., bashed against the table tops and still looks good as new!!
This to me is reflective in the price of this item as it is quite expensive (for three keys) but I would most certainly buy these activity keys for my friends children as I feel they are well worth the money.
My one indulgence spending moneywise while I am on maternity leave is toys for my gorgeous baby. So I have to be really disciplined and try to only buy second hand toys. These keys are no exception - picked up at a summer fair at a local nursery for £0.10 they were truly a bargain.
Where would I buy them?
Amazon has them for around £4.99 and you can sometimes find these at the supermarket Asda / Sainsburys but they are normally priced at £4.99 - £5.99. The price is truly horrifying for what you get!
Who are they made by?
Fisher Price are some of the worlds experts in toy design so you can be confident that they are 100% safe for your baby. They are made of hard plastic which is good for those that like to bang things! They are safe to put in the dishwasher which is good as my son likes to dribble snot and regurgitated milk all over his toys!
What are they?
THey are a joint teether and educational toy. The basic premise is that they are a set of keys and each of the plastic toys is key shaped. This means that baby can pretend to open locks with them (if they are clever enough) or they can used them as a shaky toy to make a good noise. Or they can bash them against things to make a different noise. They are brightly coloured, keeping baby's attention and each key has separate moveable sections to encourage finger dexterity. I have to say that when I first gave these to Brad (my son) they just went straight into his mouth. Now, a month later he will actually sit there studying his keys, playing with the moveable sections and making different noises with thsm. They still spend a lot of time in his mouth though!
As there is a ring on the keys we can attach them to his buggy straps and take them out and about without losing them too. THis is always a bonus with baby toys. (Anyone who has played "lets throw the toys on the floor and see if mummy notices in time to rescue them" will understand!)
Would I recommend these?
Definitely but only second hand I really could not justify spending upwards of a fiver on these toys. THey are good - but not that good. Plus being plastic they just seem to last forever so should be passed around - recycling is always good.
The only other disadvantage I can think of, other than the price is the fact that I am sure given another month Brad will have grown out of them BUT I could be wrong on that one so won't be marking them down.
Jess and Hannah both had a set of fisher price activity keys for there first christmas. When i bought them it cost £4.99 for each set from argos.
This is a basic baby toy and i think most kids have had a set of these.
The keys are made from solid plastic and are big chunky keys.
Each key is brightly coloured to attract baby's attention, red, yellow and blue.
The keys each have something to do and make a different sound, the red key has beads that can be twirled and can hear the spinning noise, blue key has a door that can be pushed up and down and makes a drumming noise, lastly the yellow key makes a clicking noise and has two parts to click together.
I would not say these are teething keys but as a young baby everything ends up in the mouth anyway. They are for aged 3 months and up. Best of all they can be washed in soapy water and dried ready to play with again.
Jess and Hannah loved playing with there set of keys and went everywhere with them even now they use them in there role play with there cosy coupe cars.
Cheap, basic but a lot of fun.
I highly recommend the fisher price activity keys make a great first toy for young babies.
My son inherited some Fisher Price teething keys from a friend. They are different from the ones in the picture but do the same thing and are similar in that they are not just shaped plastic but have different colours to each key and different textures.
At first I wasn't sure about second hand teethers but to be honest everything goes straight in his mouth anyway, regardless of whether they are intended specifically for that purpose or not. They are plastic so can be easily sterilised but they do contain a few little nooks and crannies that I find quite difficult to clean. They again a few germs are good for kids and so I just give it a quick clean as best I can and then stick them in a cold water steriliser.
The ones I have contain different beans that move around and pieces of plastic that can move up and down so there is something for babies to explore and be interested in. My son was fascinated with his from a very early age and still enjoys them now at 7 months.
I think these are good as a toy for babies and the ring will attach easily from many overhead baby toys so that they can hang down in front of them. As a teether though I am not so sure. My son prefers things that are more chewy when he is teething.
Teething toy for babies.
