Fisher Price Laugh & Learn Learning Keys
Advantages: Music and language development, plenty to look at
My daughter despite only being five months old, received plenty of Christmas gifts this year, one of which was this Fisher Price Laugh and Learn Keys which you can purchase on the likes of amazon for £14.99. Obviously I was aware of the make Fisher Price before, but this was a toy I had never seen before on any shelf and I was interested to see how my little girl would take to it, as it is actually aimed at children between the ages of 6 and 36 months.
These laugh and learn learning keys are really a set of three different coloured plastic keys that are attached by a ring to a white smiley face box with three buttons that correspond to the keys. There is a blue, green a orange key.
The blue key is all about boats and the sea, and the corresponding blue button on the main body of the toy, when pressed, tells you a little about what is on the key - ie a boat, a red boat, as well as giving some of the sounds of the sea and the horn of a boat, and finishing with two songs related to the sea. On the actual blue key there is a little moving red boat, and at the bottom of te key there is a little rattle where baby can shake some little beads.
The green key has a picture of a yellow house, with a turning wheel inside with pictures of a puppy, and at the bottom there are two coloured cogs for baby to turn. Again, if you press the corresponding coloured button on the white body, you will hear key words related to house, as well as sounds such as a doorbell, finishing with two songs.
THe orange key has a car on it, which can turned the whole way around the top part of the key. At the bottom of the key are three coloured rolling parts that baby can roll over with fingers to make them move. When you press the corresponding button on the white body, you will hear the sounds and words related to cars such as a horn, engine being started plus two songs one of which is 'the wheels on the car go round and round'.
Each of the three keys can be separated from the main body of the toy, and in fact I always keep them separate as I find that the whole toy is quite heavy when all hanging together and too heavy for my little girl to lift, but she obviously can manage to lift each key, which usually goes straight to the mouth to investigate further!
I like the fact that not only do these keys play some songs that my daughter enjoys listening to, but it also helps with language development, such as colour, as it always states the colours of the items on the keys. I also think the sounds that are related to each of the keys to be a good addition, as my daughter enjoys listening in particular to the sound of the car being started up and the sound of the sea. For some unknown reason, she loves the blue and the orange key, but has NEVER been interested in the green key. I have no idea why, as there is plenty for her to look at on the green key, but she has never shown any interest in all the time that we have had this toy. Each key also has a little coloured tab at the top which my daughter likes to chew on. She enjoys watching me turn the car round on the key and move the boat from side to side, as she is not quite able to do this herself yet.
All in all, I think this is a very good toy for the price. On many occasions I have simply taken one of the keys with me when out and about for her to look at or chew on, and the fact that it all comes apart means it keeps my daughters interest better. Although it states it is for children 6 months plus, my daughter was 4 months when she got this and has enjoyed it since then, although she can't fully interact with the keys in that she can't turn the car etc but she loves watching me do it for her. I think there is great educational value in the music and language that goes with each of the keys, and this will provide your child with lasting fun.
Summary: A great toy with plenty of entertainment value
