A couple of months back we were sent the adorable Fisher-Price Laugh and Learn Love to Play Puppy to review. Little Mr hasn’t got any other toys that are cuddly and interactive so I was really keen to see how he would get on with the puppy that sings, talks and plays games without Mummy making it move.
The Fisher-Price Laugh and Learn Love to Play Puppy is suitable for babies aged 6 months plus and is wonderfully colourful and interactive. The Puppy has different coloured paws each with a sound interaction on them when pressed. The Puppy has a heart on his chest which lights up and has been quite an attraction for Little Mr.
The Puppy has two modes; learning and musical games. When in learning mode the Puppy will become an educational toy that will help teach little ones the alphabet, parts of the body and different colours. In musical mode, the Puppy will sing songs that are easy for parents to join in with and encourage the little ones to interact with the Puppy.
At first, Little Mr was interested in the Puppy as he was new and very different to anything else he had played with. After a few more days of interaction, Little Mr pushed him away and I was concerned he didn’t like him so left him in the playpen just in case he went back to him. You know what they say, a break is as good as a rest so I put the Puppy in the car with us for our drive to Cornwall and since then he’s really enjoyed playing with him. Little Mr loves to make his heart light up and the songs make him bop especially ‘Head, shoulders, knees and toes’ which has enabled him to learn quite quickly where his nose is and can now point to his nose when asked.
At nearly 15 months old, Little Mr has really taken to him. He likes to press the Puppy’s buttons and make the songs come on and will press various parts of his body to see if he talks (when his ear is pressed, he talks along with his tummy and all his paws) A great feature for parents is that it has the ability to be switched off. If the songs are getting a bit too much, you can turn off the interaction and he’s still a cute and cuddly Puppy. It is easy however to turn the interaction back on so you probably wouldn’t want him in the cot with a sleepy baby just in case it woke them up by mistake.
Although it took Little Mr a while to enjoy the Puppy, he has since become a favourite and he has accompanied us on many a journey in the car to keep Little Mr occupied. The songs are well known and easy to join in with. The Puppy is soft, cuddly and well made. All of which I would expect from a high quality brand such as Fisher-Price.
The Fisher-Price Laugh and Learn Love to Play Puppy is a brilliant baby toy and is priced at £23.99 currently with Amazon.
