Laugh & Learn Twist & Learn Gamer Review
If your baby needs a fun yet educational toy, then look no further than the Fisher-Price Twist & Learn Gamer. It looks like an adult handheld gaming device with toddler learning features for kids ages 9 months to 3 years old. It features lights, music, and Laugh & Learn pals to keep your baby engaged for hours. It can be controlled using one of the seven buttons on the device: the three ABC buttons found on the D-pad and the four 1234 buttons found on the opposite D-pad. It also has a small joystick, two twist-and-turn handles, and two volume buttons so you can make the sounds louder or quieter. There’s 65+ songs, sounds and phrases that teach counting from 1-10, shapes, and colors, which helps to develop fine motor skills and introduces cause and effect situations to your toddler. The gamer requires 3 AAA batteries that are included, can be wiped clean with a wet cloth or wet wipes, and is portable so you can take it wherever you go. Riley absolutely loved playing with the buttons and making it light up and sing. He wasn’t really into holding it like a handheld game device, but I chalk that up to him being a little too young to do that at the moment. Also, there is no on/off button for this device so the batteries could run out sooner rather than later.
Should I get it?
We recommend this for children around 1 year old, it’s a little advanced for 9 month olds.
- The buttons keep your baby engaged
- The twist and turn handles are easy for them to hold as they walk around the house.
- It may be a little too advanced for kids who are 9 months old
- There’s no on/off switch.
