Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn Smart Stages Home Play Set
Our favorite in this category! One of the best play centers for cruising, crawling, and exploring babies. It has a doorway to crawl through, a door to open and close, and a doorbell, the latter remains our tester’s favorite. For learning about cause and effect, there are lots of switches and buttons to push that activate lights and music. There’s a clock with hands to turn and a peek-a-boo window. There’s shape sorter as well as 75+ songs, phrases and sounds. We could have done without ABC’s and 123’s for babies who are not even talking yet, but to baby they will simply be part of the thrilling power of making things happen and the wonder of cause and effect. This is part of Fisher-Price’s Smart Stages technology, that allows you to select three levels of play as your baby grows. Although being able to change the content of the songs and phrases will refresh the setting and the toy is marked 6 to 36 months, and we believe the sweet spot for this kind of setting is more like 12-24 months.
