Learning through play with Smart Stages

Martha seems to be growing and changing every day, learning all the time as she explores and plays. So when I was asked if we’d like to take a look at some of Fisher-Price’s new Smart Stages toys I knew Martha would probably love them!

The innovative Fisher-Price Smart Stages range offers an exciting way for parents to change learning content as baby develops at their own natural pace. Whatever baby’s age and stage, this unique Smart Stages technology lets parents select the stage that’s best for the child. The 3 levels of play feature a huge variety of developmentally appropriate songs, phrases and sounds that can easily be changed with slide of a switch.

The idea of having toys which can develop their content as your child develops and learns is really attractive – not only as a money saver but also as a way to help your child to learn through play.

We were sent two toys from the new range for Martha to explore – the Smart Stages Teaching Tote and the Smart Stages Scooter.

Having fun with the Fisher Price SpaceSaver Jumperoo!

There are so many toys and gadgets you can buy for babies – some which are must haves, some which are nice added extras, and some which you really don’t need but think you must have!

Of all the things you choose to buy they have to work for you and your family, not least the amount of space you have available for them!

I’ve seen lots of my friends with toys for their babies that I’d taken a shine to…and lots of friends with a Fisher Price Jumperoo (or equivalent) who swear that they are great for a bit of ‘hands free’ time but, to be honest, I’ve never felt the need for one. Plus they are bulky and big…and expensive too!

So when I was contacted to see if we’d like to try out the NEW Fisher Price SpaceSaver Jumperoo I literally ‘jumperoo-ed’ at the chance. It would be the perfect opportunity to finally see what all the fuss is about whilst having the added benefit of it being collapsible too!

Christmas comes early for our Superhero fan!

It is no secret that my 6yr old, CJ, is a Superhero fan – in fact I would describe him as a Superhero Super-fan… with his pure passion and love of ANYTHING superhero.

Over the last couple of years he has built up his collection…but with the recent general popularity of the Superhero there is always more to buy and collect, and for my mini Superhero Superfan there are a host of dream toys that he would absolutely adore and love to own.

Luckily for him then, we were given the opportunity to work in collaboration with Argos, who have a huge range of dream toys available ready to fulfill the Christmas List of ANY child this Christmas, including our little Superhero Super-fan!

So what did my Superhero Super-fan choose to take a look at… well, we don’t need many guesses:
