Vtech Sing and Discover Piano
Advantages: Many different Features with Nice Music and Lights
Disadvantages: It is a Little on the Loud side!
My son received the VTech Sing and Discover Piano as a Christmas gift when he was only 3 months old, the toy is reccomended for 6 months + so he was too young to play with it at the time. He first started properly taking an interest in it when he was about 5 months old and I found that the Lights & Music would nearly always grab his attention. As he still couldn't sit unaided, I would place him in his Bumbo chair which has a tray on the front and put the piano on the tray for him to play with in front of him.
This toy has a Brightly coloured Musical Keyboard with chunky keys which suit even the smallest of fingers. The toy doesn't just play music as I expected it would since it is a Piano, it also teaches colours, animals and instruments. There is a Notebooke with pages above the Piano's keyboard which your baby can turn, and each different page will change the mode of the Piano. For example, if it is on the Numbers page it will sing different numbers when the keys are pressed and if it is on the Nursery rhymes page it will sing the different Nursery Rhymes etc.
The Nursery Rhymes that the Piano plays are;
Row Row Row Your Boat
Three Little Kittens
Pop Goes The Weasel
Ring-a-Ring a Rosies
Along with other musical tunes!
If the piano isn't being played with, it reminds you it is still being switched on by shouting things like "Come and Play with us!" and "Jam with the Band!". There is also a continuous faint beating noise that sounds even when the toy isn't being played with, this is handy in one way as it reminds you the toy is still switched on so that you can turn it off and not waste the batteries, but at the same time it is also a really annoying noise for the parent!
There is a circular "Drum" button at the side of the Piano which makes a Drum beat noise when pressed, then theres a Blue dog "conductor" at the side which makes noises when jiggled. Finally there is a little microphone which is attached to the piano with a small lead which I noticed has been made the perfect length to be safe for your baby. The toy encourages your baby to sing by saying "Sing into the Microphone!" and the microphone really works too, but not too loud! There are 2 volume options depending on how loud you want it, but to be honest even on the quietest setting it is still quite loud!
Once again I think VTech have made a great little toys hear that it both educational and greatly entertaining for babies. It is easy to clean too and it can just be wiped down, ours it still shiny as it was new. It requires 4 x AA Batteries which are included when you first buy the toy, they seem to be lasting us a while too. I think this is a toy my son will be playing with for a while and it is certainly one that I am happy for him to play with considering the educational value and brain development it encourages.
The VTech sing and Discover Piano is widely available in most Toy stores for £19.99 and it is well worth the price tag.
