Fisher Price Laugh and Learn Roll Along Turtle
Advantages: Cute little toy, very good quality
Disadvantages: None for us
We have acquired this particular toy last year when my daughter was around 5 months old. It was a gift from my cousin and her boyfriend who came to stay with us for couple of week. The toy came in its original packaging with was just a small display cardboard box which meant the toy could be seen in it. The box and toy were small enough to fit into the suitcase as my cousin flew to UK to see us.
***What is it?***
Learn and laugh roll on turtle is an activity toy made by very well know brand Fisher Price. We have loads of toys by fisher price which all proved to be of very good quality and this one is not an exception. Turtle is multi-coloured; it has green head with smiley face painted on it, blue shell with 5 buttons, little cute green tail and 4 yellow wheels.
Turtle is aimed to help babies/toddler to learn number, shapes and colours lots by pressing buttons which are located on the shell of the turtle. Toy can be also useful when encouraging babies to start to crawl or they can crawl next to it once they are on the move.
There are 5 buttons on the turtle's shell as mentioned earlier, them being: green oval button with note on it which plays a song and 4 shapes. Each shape is different colour and has assigned a number which is painted on that particular shape. So we have a purple triangle with number 1 on it, orange square with number 2, yellow circle number 3 and red heart number 4. Depending on which button is pressed, the turtle will say the shape and if you press the same button again it will say the number which is assigned to that particular shape. The song button sings:
"Counting counting counting is such fun, count with me lets starts with number 1, 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10 wasn't that the best I would love to count again"
Trust me, this is very catching song, when my daughter first got this toy it used to play all the time and because she loved it soooo much I didn't have a heart to switch it off.
Turtle has little button at the bottom, you can either set it on low volume, loud or off. Because this toy is not too large, i was able to take it with us when we where travelling or visiting family to keep my daughter entertained.
***My turtle is bit different***
For those you have read my previous reviews, I have mentioned that I my first language is not English and my daughter is being raised as bilingual as all my family live abroad. My cousin brought this toy for my daughter from Slovakia and so my turtle is bilingual and speaks/sings in both Slovak and English. It first speaks/sings in Slovakian and goes straight to repeat it in English. I was very pleased with this; we have few bilingual toys at home which help my daughter to link English and Slovak together.
Toy is recommended for babies of 6 months of age and above. My daughter got it at nearly 5 months old and was able play and enjoy it straight away. She loved listening to the song. I used to play it and wheel it towards her whilst she was sitting up (before she could crawl) which used to make her laugh so much. Now that she is nearly 20 months old, she still plays with this toy occasionally (although not as much as she used to). I will often ask her to point the shape I want her to press so she can listen to it in English and Slovak. She likes it when we sit opposite to each other and wheel turtle back and forth towards each other. It certainly provided hours of fun for my daugher.
Turtle came with batteries already in it and considering how much she used to play with it, I didn't have to change batteries at all yet so they do last a while. Turtle is made of plastic and its easy to clean either with damp cloth or I use baby wipe and job done.
As mentioned above, this was a gift to my daughter so I didn't pay for it. I haven't seen it loads around shops but it is available on Amazon.co.uk for £13.95 which may seem bit steep for such a small toy however what toy is cheap nowadays? On the top of that, this is fisher price toy which is an excellent quality, we had this toy for 16 months now and it had fair amount of bashing around and I cannot point out single scrat on it!!! I would still recommend it even for this price to anyone.
Summary: Good toy, recommended
