Fisher Price Smart Stages is a clever range of toys designed to last for longer than average and suit different developmental stages, helping your child to learn colours, numbers, shapes and more. As you’d expect from Fisher Price the range is well made, able to withstand even the most boisterous toddler attack and will last for years to come! We were sent a couple of items from the new range, ostensibly for Arlo to last him through baby and toddlerhood but of course Athena got in on the action as soon as the box arrived!
Although Arlo is a little too small just now for the Baby Ride On Scooter he’ll be using it in a matter of months I’m sure! For now though Athena has been scuttling around on it merrily pressing the horn and the other buttons on the dashboard too! As she scoots along the wheels trigger songs and sounds, and the dashboard buttons are more advanced and help to teach about shapes and opposites. It’s nice and steady to use due to the large wheels and easy to hold handles, and will help to teach Arlo to balance as he uses it. It’s easy to swap between the three development/age stages with the slider button to tailor the scooter to the right age/developmental stage which are: Explore, Encourage and Pretend. Retailing at £36.99 the ride on is suitable from 12 months upwards.
Athena likes to point out clocks, and whenever we hear bells or anything else that goes ‘ding dong’ she’ll shout clock! The Toy Clock not only helps with time telling once she’s a bit older but also has colours and shape learning that is activated by the numbered buttons, and can be learnt in English and French! I love the fact that there’s a chance to learn another language from an early age, as it’s something I never got an opportunity to do! There are over 75 sing along songs and phrases too so there really is a huge amount of learning potential! Retailing at £16.99 the Counting Colours Clock is suitable from 6 months right up to pre school age!
This isn’t really how the Scooter should be used, but she looked so pleased with herself I couldn’t not include it! Also, who remembers the classic FIsher Price garage from their childhood? My friends little boy is lucky enough to have one that has been passed down, and I’ll freely admit I had a lot of fun playing with it when we visited! It reall
We were sent these items to review, all opinions and words are my own. You can see what we thought of lots more Fisher Price toys here.
