When it comes to friends, one could say that I’m my baby’s bestie. I mean, it’s a no brainer… the kid wants to hang out with me, like, 24/7! And hey, I don’t mind at all – have you seen his cheeks? Best cheeks in all the land. But – not gon’ lie – I was super keen when I heard that Fisher-Price Linkimals were being launched in South Africa!
For those who don’t know, this toy is dubbed as “baby’s crew of talking, singing, light-up friends” (yes, just like in my title), because it’s loaded with exciting interactive play elements that are both fun and educational.
The fun lights and songs introduces baby to counting, colours and more! Pressing the Linkimals Musical Moose starts a totally rockin’ light-up learning party (one could say it’s “lit”) and, what’s even more fun is the synchronized music and light show when a bunch of Linkimals are hanging out together!
The Linkimal characters “recognize” each other and they create a synchronized music and light show. How legit?! So the more Linkimal characters you have, the better!
Where development comes into play:
Early Academics: Sung songs and phrases introduce your baby to colours and counting from 1 to 10!
Sensory: The moose’s light-up belly, playful songs and sounds, and soft antlers engage your baby’s developing visual, auditory, and tactile senses.
Curiosity & Wonder: Your baby can discover the fun of cause and effect as they press the belly button to activate music and lights or bat at the bobble head.
