Explore first words with the Laugh & Learn Puppy and the Laugh & Learn First Words Smart Puppy toy. This colorful toy, which features a large Laugh & Learn Puppy character with soft ears and a light-up nose, has eight blocks for kids to hold, stack, and swipe across the toy's magical reader. The magical reader recognizes the image on the block and the puppy will talk about that image.
There are three stages of play to allow the toy to grow with your child. In stage 1, which is Explore mode, babies can press one of the five number buttons or swipe a block to hear first words about colors, shapes, numbers, objects, and animals.
In stage 2, which is Encourage mode, babies and toddlers can press a button or swipe a block to identify shapes and objects. The Laugh & Learn Puppy will also prompt kids to find and press a specific button.
And in stage 3, which is Pretend mode, toddlers and preschoolers will hear words, songs, and phrases that encourage pretend play with each button they press and block they swipe.
In each mode, kids can also press the puppy's light-up nose for more songs, sounds, and phrases.
And there is storage on the toy for holding all eight of the blocks. To release the blocks stored in the chute, just push down on the lever and they'll slide down.
This toy is designed to help babies build a connection between objects they see and the words they hear. And it does so in an age-appropriate way through three levels of play that grow with your child. That's what parents will like.
What babies, toddlers, and preschoolers will like are all the buttons to press, the blocks to manipulate, and the cool textures on each block to explore. The sounds, lights, and phrases will keep them engaged in the play, and they'll think it's neat that something happens when they simply swipe a block over the magical reader.
The Laugh & Learn First Words Smart Puppy is for ages 9 months to 36 months. With its three learning modes, it's a toy that will grow with your child.
This comes with four AA batteries for the in-store try-me features, so it's recommended that you replace them before you play for best results.
To expand your child's vocabulary even more, additional First Words Block packs can be purchased separately.
This toy has two volume settings.
