Laugh & Learn Smart Stages Chair Review (Fisher-Price)

Laugh & Learn Smart Stages Chair
What It Is

The Laugh & Learn Smart Stages Chair is an interactive, electronic chair with three levels of play to grow with your child. Using what Fisher-Price calls Smart Stages technology, parents slide the switch to manually change among the three levels of play or enter their baby's age for automatic level changes. The chair senses when your child is sitting on it and adjusts the play level depending on the child's weight, so as your child grows, the chair will automatically move up to the next play level, suggesting developmentally appropriate games and learning activities. The three play levels allow kids to explore by pressing buttons, such as the light-up remote control, or flipping the book pages. Level 1 is all about first words and sounds for babies 12 months and up, level 2 prompts babies ages 18 months and up through questions and simple directions, and level 3 engages kids ages 2 and up in imaginative fun and early roleplay. The seat also lifts up to show images of keys, coins, and even a lost gingerbread man, which is all part of the interaction as kids are asked to find them throughout the three play levels. You can also store small toys or a book in the space under the seat.

Is It Fun?

This toy chair offers a lot of engaging play. Because it grows with the child, it's something that can be played with for a long time. It also functions as practical home furniture, and little kids will love having their very own armchair.

Who It’s For
