Ale got an early Birthday surprise from Fisher-Price and boy, was she absolutely delighted with it.
Just don't ask me where she had learnt her posing from. I am totally clueless as well. And as if that was not enough, she had another 'emo look' pose in her repertoire too!
The Laugh & Learn Learning Table is a erm, a learning table with two interactive play modes that teach A-B-C’s, 1-2-3’s, colours, textures, first words, music and more. Well, that was all and good but what Ale really wanted was for the table to be removed from its box instantaneously!
Assembly of the toy is extremely easy - you only need to snap four of the legs into the bottom.
The Laugh and Learn Learning Table has a food theme and has different kinds of food spread out on the table with a spinning bowl of alphabet soup in the centre.
The Learning Table is a tad too short for Ale though, but I reckon it will be perfect for toddlers who have just learnt to stand up. In fact, remove the legs and a younger baby can enjoy it too.
I like the dual content feature - one option for singing and music, and another option for learning that teaches the alphabet, colours, shapes, and so on. With lots of colourful and cute make-believe foods like pizza, a cookie and fruits, it kept Ale preoccupied for a substantial period of time. Well, long enough for me to complete this blog entry anyway.
Another favourite of Ale is the spoon rattle that can be removed from the table and the alphabet letters that float in the water sealed in the bowl that move around when the bowl spins. And when it starts spinning, the music starts and on Ale goes as she dances like a maniac.
The construction of the Learning Table is sturdy, and the colours are bright and engaging. More importantly though, we parents all know how some toddler toys can emit annoyingly irritating music - especially if it is being played non-stop! - but luckily, the music for this learning toy is actually quite pleasant. Heh.
Personally, I have always believed that PLAY is still the best way to help children with brain development and learning. And research has shown that it actually sets the stage for success later in learning, building relationships and also in daily living skills.
With this in mind, Fisher-Price has launched an early learning fund aimed at helping parents give their children a head-start in life.
