Over the last few months I have featured several fantastic new LeapFrog toys for ‘older’ children and we’ve given away some great LeapFrog prizes too. If you haven’t already there is still time to enter the LeapFrog Doc McStuffins giveaway, there’s an awesome LeapReader pack up for grabs. But of course you’re never too young to learn which is why the LeapFrog range caters for curious babies too:
When our little Sybil turned one a few months ago this LeapFrog Sing & Play Farm (RRP $34.99, 6 months – 3 years) was one of her birthday gifts and it has been very well used ever since. This fun toy house has many different ways of play so I discovered very quickly that it’s the perfect toy to keep our cheeky girl entertained while I cook dinner, answer a phone call or even dare to take a toilet break.
The colourful barn shaped building has everything you expect from a proper farm: a barn door that opens and closes, a tractor that really revs, a cow that moos, a cat that meows, a pig that oinks, a bunny that hops, sheep, birds, a sheep dog and much more. There are buttons to press, doors to open, lights to turn on, switches to pull, engines to start and even a spider to climb up the water spout.
Like the girl in the picture Sybbie carries the Sing & Play Farm from room to room by the top handle (not easy when you’re still a little wobbly!) and she seems to like the songs the most as she always opens the barn door to hear ‘Old McDonald had a farm’. Even miss 3 regularly plays with it and she really pays attention to the different sentences and follows the ‘instructions’ e.g. if the cow says ‘There is a puppy down below, don’t you know?’ she will go find the puppy next.
Over all I think the LeapFrog Sing & Play Farm makes a fantastic (well priced) first birthday gift, babies will get lots and lots of enjoyment out of it and they will keep learning and discovering new things as they get older.
