“ Brand: VTech / Age: 12 months / Type: Learning Toy „
My youngest daughter received this from her Aunty for her Christmas. This toy is suitable from 12 months upwards and as my daughter was 16 months when she received it I felt that she was the perfect age for it.
It is made by VTech which has always been a good brand to me and at £13.10 which is the price at the moment in Amzon I think it is good value for money.
This is a very bright and colourful toy, it is made from plastic and it is very sturdy, having already put up with being thrown around and hit by my beloved daughter in one of her tantrums. It comes complete with 5 different shapes which can be pushed into the appropriate place on the side of the ark, not only does the shape match but the colour does too which is great for all round learning of shapes and colours. With this set you also get a dolphin, a penguin and a turtle which can sit on top of the ark or inside as it sails along, or rather get pulled along on a very bumpy ride by a string at the front of the ark. The button easily slides along to be turned on to learning mode or discovery mode which both say different phrases and sing songs. There are various buttons on this which are all very easy to press with little hands and for us parents there is also a volume control which does quieten it down that little bit.
This toy has had a lot of use in this house and I think it makes a great toy for this age group as it is so easy to play with and make a lot of noise.
Come aboard the Animal Playset and sail your way to early learning by sorting the colourful shape sorter pieces children can learn shapes, colours and objects.

Press the bell button on the deck or roll the ark along the hear fun responses, melodies and sing-along songs.
