As an Early Childhood Educator and a mom, I know first hand how important play is to a child's learning. Everyday children learn through play and it is important to have toys and materials that will teach but will also touch on all a children's developmental areas. Playskool and Hasbro know the importance of play and over the years I have seen the results of this in the various products that have been released. This fall, Playskool debuted the Learnimals ABC Adventure Elefun Toy and recently Hasbro Canada sent our family a complimetnary one to review!
Learning numbers and ABCs and other new skills is more fun for your little buddy when he has an elephant friend, and that's why we made the ABC Adventure Elefun toy! The toy's more than 75 sound effects, tunes and activities make learning fun, and there are more than 100 words to learn. Your little one will squeal with delight when he pulls down the elephant's trunk, because the toy will say the word that goes with the image shown. When he rolls the drum, it will say another word! Pulling down the mouse shows shapes and colors. For hours of big learning fun, the ABC Adventure Elefun toy is the best buddy your child can have!
Light-up, scrolling images represent letters A to Z! Pull-down trunk teaches new words! Peek-a-boo ear reveals a letter! Pull-down mouse teaches shapes and colors. Slide the butterfly as you count. Toggle switch advances one letter forward or backward. Roll the drum to hear another word from the screen!
Includes toy and instructions. Ages 6 months and up.
Although my children are elementary aged and really too old for this toy, I have still had a fantastic time using it with a couple of younger children that I have the privilege of caring for in my home child care program. They have absolutely loved the songs especially and I have loved that they are learning animal names and sounds, new songs and the letters of the alphabet in a fun and engaging manner! The colors are bright and it is one of those toys that even though the songs, and information is repeated a lot, its not done in an annoying manner. To see the smiles on the little one's faces and see them using gross and fine motor skills as they move the trunk and open the door, dance and wiggle to the music, is exactly what makes this toy worth every penny.
I highly recommend the Playskool Learnimals ABC Adventure Elefun Toy and you can purchase it at your favorite toy retailer from Hasbro!
