The kind people from Fisher-Price sent boxes of happy toys ahead of a playdate session with Eizac’s friends.
My 2 boys were jumping with excitement when these arrived and there was no stopping them from attacking the boxes. Happy toys indeed.
Majority of these toys are from the Laugh & Learn series. You will hear characteristic tunes from the various toys and all are packed with little surprises for learning opportunities.
Eizac and Xi En couldn’t wait to lay their hands on the toys and very soon Xi En could sing along to some of the songs and catchy phases as such “Hmmm Hmmm something smells yummy; time to put something in my tummy!”
The Laugh & Learn series of toys are designed to incorporate learning in the various toys. There are always more than a few songs in each toy; teach on numbers, alphabets, feelings and manners –which is so adept for today’s kids in my opinion. Teaching kids to mind their “P” and “Q” starts from a young age and how good it is to have toys to reinforce such principles.
My 2 boys had a go (or rather many rounds) with the new toys and they are loving it!
Storytime Puppy: This is one good value toy as it packs 40+ songs & phases and tells you stories eagerly with his nodding of head and flapping of hands.
We organised a little playdate with 2 of Eizac’s young friends – Keyan and Joash. Best part of play dates for me is to catch up with friends and share parenting stories.
Play dates or for that matter, all gatherings, are not complete without food (in my opinion at least!)
Kyan and his Daddy and Mummy arrived first and little Kyan was such a darling; entertained himself in the Fisher-Price Newborn-to-Toddler Rocker while everyone tucked in.
The young friends gathered at our small play corner and had a go with all the Fisher-Price toys.
Little People’s highlights of the day:
Baby Keyan is the youngest of the 3 babes. At 5+ months, he took a liking to the smaller toys such as the Learning Keys and the detachable spoon from the Learning Table. Good idea to have detachable items so we can all care and share!
Baby Joash is 6+ months and at the stage of exploring and “tasting” everything! Everything is a lollipop! Lick Lick, Nom Nom.
Eizac is the oldest of the 3 boys; at 10+ months. He can sit up on his own, loves his food and learning to read our expressions. Babbles a whole lot of baby words. 🙂
It was full-filled afternoon for our little friends and from what we gathered, Fisher-Price toys had done themselves well in entertaining our friends and scored well in the music and educational front especially with the mummies!
