Spin & Learn Color Carousel Review (VTech)

What It Is

The Spin & Learn Color Carousel is a cute plastic carousel with more than 65 songs, melodies, sounds, and phrases, mostly about animals and counting. Once turned on, there are two modes: animal mode and music mode. Whichever mode you're in, press the top of the carousel down to see the animals spin and hear the music. There's a lion, elephant, hippo, and alligator that introduce animals, colors, fun facts, and sounds. A question button encourages your child to play and answer questions about animals. The number button counts the animals. Songs include familiar classics such as "Yankee Doodle" and "Pop Goes the Weasel." Random melodies and tunes also play, offering little ones a lot of stimulation.

Is It Fun?

Kids will enjoy the circus-like theme, and parents will appreciate the volume control, durable design, and automatic shut-off. This toy also helps develop fine motor skills, introduces babies to cause and effect, and encourages discovery and exploration.

Who It’s For

The Spin & Learn Color Carousel is for babies and toddlers 9 months-3 years old.

What To Be Aware Of

This toy includes two AAA batteries, but VTech recommends replacing those before you play for best results.

Even though there are two modes of play, they don't seem that different to us depending on which activity you choose.
