LeapFrog Musical Table
Advantages: Legs can be taken off, good age span
Disadvantages: Not of huge interest to my daughter
When my daughter turned one, we felt she really needed some toys that she would grow with. Electronic toys aren't my favourite if I'm honest, I much prefer classical traditonal toys, but at the same time I know how much my daughter is attracted by all singing all dancing toys. As a little extra gift for her first birthday, my husband and I bought her this this Leapfrog Learn and Groove Musical Table, which usually retails between £25 and £30 however, I picked it up at £16 on amazon and when I saw it at that price, I thought it would be an ideal way to finish her gift.
Although the picture at the top shows a toy with pink legs, I actually have the green version of this toy. Everything apart from the colour is the same though. This table is suitable for children from 6 months to 36 months and I think this is a fair age range. My daughter was a year when she got this, and it is perfect for her height so she can stand and play with this table, but I also think it would be very useful when a child is learning to pull themselves up as it is a sturdy toy. Even if a child cannot pull themselves up or they get too tall for this table, the main toy itself can be detached from the legs and played with independently.
This toy comes with the option of two languages - English or French, which may be a useful feature for some, but is of little relevance to my daughter. Changing the language is simply a matter or pushing a button.
The hard book on the middle of table can be flipped between either a music mode or language mode. Depending on the mode selected each of the other toys on the table top adapt. As the picture at the top shows, there is a small colourful keyboard, a trombone style toy, a xylophone, a maraca, and even a music door that can be opened and closed. Children can either listen to the alphabet or hear the numbers 1 - 10 being counted depending on the mode selected.
There are parts of this table top that my daughter enjoys and there are parts she never really bothers with. She loves the maraca, flipping the book, and opening and closing the music door, as it stops and starts music when she does this and she finds this quite amusing. I would have expected her to enjoy all of the buttons but she tends to go back to the same ones.
Since receiving this toy, I would say that my daughter does play with it, but certainly not everyday and certainly not for very long. Now, I do know that as she grows she may start to look at more of the buttons, but she has had this now for almost three months and she hasn't shown any more interest in it than she did at the start. I am glad that I didn't pay the full price for this toy it certainly wouldn't have been value for money for my little girl. I am slightly disappointed, but maybe other children may find it of more interest than my daughter.
Summary: A good toy but not worth the full price
