Last Christmas Jayden got a lot of new toys from friends and family, one toy he got was the Fisher Price Brilliant Basics Pound 'N Giggle Hammer, this is not a large complicated toy that he will spend ages playing with, however it is something he will go to from time to time and spend some time playing with it.
The Fisher Price Brilliant Basics Pound N Giggle Hammer came attached to a large card/ box, it had the Fisher Price logo on it and the name of the product, there were also a few facts about the toy in various places on the packaging. The packaging was bright and colourful and all of the information easy to read and follow so you knew exactly what you were getting. The hammer was secured to the car/ box with wire ties which could simply be removed with a pair of scissors before giving it to you child.
This toy is basically what the name suggests, a chunky plastic toy hammer, it has a bright red plastic texture handle which is easy for little hands to grip, this also has the Fisher Price logo going the length of it. At the top of the handle is a yellow plastic ring which can be spun around and makes a clicking sound as you do so.
The top part of the hammer is made from a bright blue plastic, there are spiral discs on either side which spin and a silly face which pops in and out of either side of the hammer head when pressed.
When you tap the hammer on something to make the faces go in and out of the hammer you will hear banging, crashing, springing and giggling sounds at the same time.
The hammer needs 3 cell batteries to work which it comes with, we have not had to change the batteries in Jayden's since he has had it, this toy is suitable for children aged 3 to 36 months.
By playing with the Fisher Price Brilliant Basics Pound N Giggle Hammer your children will start to recognise colours by identifying the different bright colours the hammer is made up of and they will also learn cause and effect, how their actions and make something happen, in this case by shaking or tapping the hammer on something they cause the faces to pop out of the sides of the hammer and also the sounds will play.
As I have mentioned this was a present that Jayden received, however I do know that this toy is available online from places such as ToysR Us as well as a range of different toy shops. From what I have seen this is sold for around £9.00 to £10.00, although this depends on where you purchase it from and you may be able to get it a bit cheaper if you shop around.
Jayden has had his hammer for several months now and it is still as good as new despite being played with regularly, although it is not something he plays with on a daily basis he will often dig it out of his toy box and have a game with it, the size of it also makes it handy to take out with you to keep your child occupied. The hammer is made from a tough, strong and durable plastic and can withstand being tapped on different things as your child plays with it, Jayden's really does still look as good as new, the batteries have also lasted extremely well and we have never had to change them at all.
Personally I would say that this toy can be a bit over priced from some stores, however you do need to shop around to get a good price for it. Overall I would recommend this toy.
