VTech Sit to Stand Dancing Tower
Advantages: see review

The sit to stand dancing tower is yet another toy that my daughter owns. It was purchased from tesco for around £20 which was an absolute bargain in my opinion. Believe it or not we actually live in a tiny flat. It is starting to feel more like toyrus in here by the minute. This tower is a particular favourite now that Amelia is pulling herself up to stand.
The sit to stand tower can be used, as the name suggests either sitting or standing. There is a blue platform at the bottom which a tower is inserted into and this can either have 2 pieces for standing or one for sitting. They simply click together. The only real assembly required is 4 screws to attach the platform securely, everything else just clicks into place, very quick and easy. Although it's easy to assemble it also feels secure. Amelia is now using this to pull herself up to stand and it hasn't fallen or tipped over yet.
The main features of this is the platform at the top of the tower. This features a bear with a pair of cymbals which can be moved and spun around. I don't know whether Amelia loves him or hates him but she certainly enjoys bashing him. There is then 5 piano keys which light up and activate the music. There is also a little game on there where they tell you which colour to press. Amelia is only 14 months so this means nothing to her yet but she really enjoys the talking and music. There is also a microphone which actually works, Amelia is yet to understand this but again she loves puling it around and twisting it. There is also a colourful spinner and a pair of cymbals.
One of the cleverest features of this is the design of the platform. It has 4 bright green handles around it so baby has something to grab onto. These come in handy for both sitting and standing modes. With sitting for ages my daughter would sit quite happily as long as she had something to hold on to but fall over as soon as she let go. This allowed her to play without needing support. Now she's standing she uses the handles to pull herself up with. It is worth noting however that Amelia is very small for her age and a heavier child might not be able to do this as it might tip over.
The box says that this toy is suitable from 9 months but I do feel that it would be suitable for a younger child, any time from when they can sit up really. The toy is made completely from brightly coloured plastic and is very easy to clean by wiping it over with a damp cloth. There are 2 volume settings on here but both are pretty loud. The bear says various phrases and Amelia loves it when he talks to her although I admit I do cringe every single time he tells her to 'shake it baby'.
All in all I would highly recommend this tower. It has really grown with Amelia and she has used for around 6 months now and is showing no signs of getting bored with it. In fact as she gets older and can interact with it more the more fun she gets from it.
