momstown Milton was lucky enough to be chosen to review the new Laugh and Learn Love to Play Puppy from Fisher Price. When I opened it up, I had to do a double take since it looked very similar to the puppy that we already have and love! I was excited to see the upgrades that have been made and I was curious to see if my son would notice them at all.
I put out the new version for him to play with and waited to see what his reaction would be. He was startled at first since with this version the puppy actually wiggles, dances, claps and moves and my little guy wasn't expecting it all. After a few times of pushing the buttons and watching the movements (especially the ears going up and down) from a distance he warmed up to it and began engaging with the toy - singing, dancing,clapping and most of all smiling and having a good time.
The songs are upbeat and catchy with some childhood standards in the mix like if You're Happy and You Know It and Patty Cake. The instructions are easy to follow and offer your little one a fun way of learning the basics. Jaxon's favourite was the counting to 10 song that had him clapping along and counting out loud with the puppy.
We decided to take the puppy for a trip to our playgroup to see if the others might enjoy playing with him too. I should have known he would be a big hit! The kids gathered around him and couldn't wait until it was their turn to push the button. It was great watching them take turns, share the toy and act out the directions that were presented to them. I even picked up some new funky dance moves from the girls!
Overall the Laugh and Learn Puppy is a toy that will be well used and loved in our household. If you want one of your very own don't forget to enter our momstown contest to win!
