Fisher Price Laugh & Learn Learning Home

I was gifted the Fisher Price Laugh & Learn Learning Home when my first son was born. We did not realize the value of this toy until we opened it when my son started sitting at 6 months. We quickly learned that this is the best toy ever! All three of my children have loved it and been using it since they were old enough to play. A home that your children can call their own – what more can they ask for? All the bells and whistles with learning activities, fun, and music.

2 Play Modes:

  • Learning Time – hear the alphabet with play along radio, drop balls in rain spot for counting, spin house numbers, move hands of the clock, shape sorter, colors, opposites (up/down, night/day, in/out, on/off)
  • Music – 21 songs (including Hickory Dickory Dock, The Itsy Bitsy Spider), 25+ sounds and encouraging phrases

Features:

  • Door for baby to crawl through
  • “Outside” – doorbell that rings, mailbox for letters (3 letters included), sun and moon dial, rolling garden display, spinning flower, window to open and close, house numbers that move, shape sorter
  • “Inside”- on off light switch (light turns on “outside”), singing clock
  • Volume control for the music, sounds
  • Requires 3 C batteries
  • Use from 6 months – 3 years – grows with your child (helps to teach time for older ones etc)
The few negatives are:
  • Lots of pieces to the house which can get lost – 3 balls, 3 plastic pieces of mail, 4 shapes, 1 door key
  • Very expensive for a toy- $90
  • Can tip over if pushed (I have seen my boys rough play with it and knock it over but as babies they were not able to do it)
  • Big and bulky (flat enough where in can be pushed against a wall to minimize the  space it takes up)

My kids spend a lot of time going in and out of the house and playing with all the various parts of the house. Another great thing is that more than 1 kid can play with the house at the same time. I have seen my kids interacting with it together and there is plenty of space or things for them to do. The Laugh & Learn Learning Home has received the most mileage in our house. Luckily we got it as a gift, but I am such a fan that if you have the money to spare, this is a fantastic gift for a baby.
