Review: Fisher-Price Learning Home


fisher price LH headerI love watching Little Mr learning through play. He’s inquisitive enough to explore new things and I love to see his face react to the change that plays out before him. Over the last couple of weeks we have been reviewing the Fisher-Price Learning Home; an interactive front of house with its own window, door and doorbell.

The Fisher-Price Learning Home is, on first impressions, a good size full of features to keep an interested toddler engaged for a good period of time. When we first set it up and let little Mr play with it, he went straight for the brightly coloured door and crawled through. He was amazed. I love how the Learning Home is set up as a typical front of home; window, door, letterbox and light. All the familiar features of home just in miniature form for the nosy toddler.

The Learning Home is suitable for babies and toddlers between the age of 6 months to 36 months although I would recommend this product for babies aged 1+ to get the most benefit from it.

What Little Mr thought

I have loved watching him play with the Learning Home. He has really enjoyed pressing all the buttons, pushing the door, opening the window, turning the daytime/nighttime dial and posting the balls through the drain pipe. What is especially lovely is watching him press the buttons on the radio and listening for the music. He has learnt to press a particular button for a particular song and he has done this repeatedly whilst dancing around the living room, it has been very cute to watch. He is learning the sounds of 1,2,3 and makes the right noises for the sound of the number which is very clever and when the interactive sound says ‘goodbye’ he’s been waving and saying bye.

Useful Info

The Learning Home requires 3 x C alkaline batteries which are not included


The Fisher-Price Learning Home is available to buy from Argos and is priced at £99.99.

I would recommend the Learning Home as a toy for toddlers to learn about everyday life. The features are all familiar and the interactive features are just brilliant. Little Mr has had lots of fun playing with it and we’ve really enjoyed watching him discover and learn through play.
