Advantages: It will help your child learn new animals, sounds, numbersand songs.
Disadvantages: The phrases get a bit annoying when you hear them over and over again.
This is a great VTech toy you can buy the VTech Spin and Teach Top on Ebay for £12.99. It is suited for children over 6 months. The spinning top comes complete with the 2XAA batteries that it needs.
This toy is really good as it has lots of activities for your child to do. Round the edge of the spinning top is numbers 1-4 which when you press light up and say the number. The colours of them are 1-red, 2- purple, 3-orange and 4 is green. This is good as it teaches your child numbers and colours. It also has them using there fine motor skills having to press the buttons.
On the top of the spinning top there is a big red button that they can press down then it goes again. When you do this the spinning top spins round and says a phrase or plays a tune. The most popular phrase is says is 'Animals round and round we go' then it asks for you to spin it again .and it plays a tune.
On top of the main part of the spinning top there is 4 different animals which are the elephant, monkey, bear and lion. When you press them it says a phrase and gets you to find another one. For example when I press the monkey it say 'I am the monkey and makes a monkey noise then says where's the lion'. So then your child will need to look for the lion figure and press that one and it carries on. If you are taking a bit longer to find an animal it plays a tune and says 'Give me another spin' and then lights up.
I think this toy is brilliant as it's very bright and cheerful it is made of hard plastic so won't break if your child presses on the buttons hard. The spinning top will help your child learn animals, numbers, songs, colours and phrases. It will have them looking for different animals so they get involved with the toy. The instructions that it gives you to find the animals are very clear and fun. My daughters loved playing with this when there younger and had hours of fun with it. The tune and phrases do get a bit annoying after a while though.
