    Editorial Review

    This toy will make you want to take a nap. Equipped with straps that attach it to a crib, this play aquarium and music maker is the perfect thing to amuse a child or soothe them to sleep. There are three settings, depending on what kind of stimulation is needed: music only; music plus soft glowing lights; and music plus lights, bubbles, and moving fish. There are also three music options, the best one offering soft and melodic New Age fare, the other two somewhat odd, spacey versions of familiar lullabies. The music combined with the lights creates an instantly peaceful, soothing ambiance. There are a couple of buttons and doodads for baby to bat around that make the fish react in various ways. If these buttons were a little more responsive, this toy would be near perfect. --David Stoesz ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars My little one goes to sleep everynight w/ this toy
    We really like it. I had the older one for my 6 year old. Now my 7 month has had this one for 6 months, and has listened to it everynight before bed. He has now learned how to turn it on and off himself. I would highly recommend this toy.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Second baby still loves it
    I love this aquarium. We first had the older version of it with my first son (broke it when he got older). Then we got this one for my now 6 month old. I change his dipes in the crib sometimes or let him play there and I just turn it on for him to watch. He loves it. I LIKE that it can be loud because when I lay him down for a nap, I want it to drown out the noise in the background... like of my almost 3 year old racing through the house. <br /> <br /> It definitely keeps him entertained and even moreso as a newborn.

    3-0 out of 5 stars ok toy
    This is just an ok toy. My 9 month old son likes it ok but it not one of his favorites. The motor is loud and it's kind of creepy music. I would recommend getting a different toy to soothe your little one back to sleep. My child just mainly likes to play with it a few minutes or so.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Not quite what I expected
    The ocean waves sound really soothes my son to sleep, but I have to keep the volume turned down all the way. I can't believe how loud the volume is for a nightime toy. Also, I can't turn the bubbles on because the motor is so loud if it doesn't keep the baby awake, it keeps me awake over the monitor. The bubbles are the major reason I bought it, so I'm not exactly thrilled with it. I just feel like there was probably something else out there we both would have liked better.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Helps her learn to go back to sleep on her own
    I bought this for my daughter when she was just 1 month old, she is now almost two and she still loves it. You can adjust the how low it hangs down in the crib so I have never had a prblem with her head getting hurt. She loves to push it by herself, and when she wakes up in the middle of the night she just sits up and pushes the button and goes back to sleep. The Bubbles are a bit to loud to use when she is older though and the music is also a bit loud for a crib toy. But the running water noise saved us when she was a baby. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Activity mats are a staple baby item in most households. They provide a safe, fun, and educational environment where your little one can lie or sit, and play. Tiny Love's award-winning deluxe mat depicts a riot of happy animals. Elephants, monkeys, giraffes, and even birds will charm your baby who will love the round mirror, squeaky bird, crinkly elephant ear, and pullable giraffe tail. Also included are four plastic rings that can hang from the crossbars, each one with a different plush animal attached to it providing more stimulation and activities. Hidden in one corner of the playmat is a small plastic box housing a switch and speaker. Move the switch to Mozart to hear 10 continuous minutes of music and to light up the three flowers on the mat. Switch to Nursery Tunes for shorter snippets of three popular songs. The mat and its arches fold up nicely, and the entire gym snaps together and travels easily. --Pam Lauer ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT ENTERTAINMENT
    My 4 1/2 month old daughter has enjoyed this Gymini for over two months. It is wonderful entertainment. She especially loves the mirror and looking at the flowers light up when she is on her belly. I love the convenience of being able to fold it up quickly and neatly to take to our parents' houses. It is the ONE item that we could not live without right now. She loves to play on it for over an hour a day. It's well worth the money.

    5-0 out of 5 stars GREAT GYM
    Our 4 month old little girl just loves this gym. She plays with all of the animals and just laughs for hours at a time. It folds up very easily, which makes it a sure thing to take to the grandparent's house. I would highly recommend this gym for your infant.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful
    My 8 week son is very active. He loves to move his arms and legs all day long. So, I knew a Play Gym would be perfect for him. He loves this one. He can kick and grab at the hanging toys for up to an hour. It's very colorful. There is so much for him to look at. Don't think for a minute that this is too busy or that there is too much going on. He makes all sorts of happy grunting and gurgling sounds, so I know he is being entertained. He isn't laying on his tummy very often yet, but that just means he can grow into this toy. I highly recommend this Play Gym!

    5-0 out of 5 stars This is Great
    My baby loves to play with this. I used this almost right away. Great colors and music. You will be sooo proud when your baby first reaches for the toys!!!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars A MUST FOR YOUR NEW BABY
    This is by far the greatest gift we got! I don't know what I would have done without this! My daughter loved it so much. I first put her in it when she was 3 weeks old and she stared at the animals so intently. She would smile so big at the giraffe... It was too cute. It encouraged her to reach, swat, kick and grab at objects very quickly. And the mirror on the corner helped encourage her to roll over at an early age. The arches are removable (and should be removed once your baby can sit up) and the mat & toys are machine washable. It folds up nicely and I kept the original plastic bag it came in for traveling. Again, this is sooooo worth the money!! I would move the toys around all the time. And she loved the different textures. The giraffe and monkey are rattles, the parrot crinkles, and the elephant vibrates. There's another rattle and mirror too. She loved chewing on the monkey and giraffe feet! Perfect size for a little mouth :-)The mat itself has a crinkly elephant ear, zebra tail, squeeky bird, and musical flowers that light up. You can put the music on yourself, or they go on when your baby puts pressure on the music pad.
    The ONLY negative is that when it folds up, the "good side" of the mat and toys are exposed, instead of folding the opposite way. But if you save the original bag, it's not a big deal.
    I can't say enough about this - it helped me occupy my baby for hours. I just loved laying next to her while she played - or knew that she could entertain herself while I relaxed nearby. It has been a favorite for months - adapting to her development!! DEFINATELY BUY!!! ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    This is a happy, noisy toy that should amuse most toddlers. Everything that can be touched reacts in some way, from a trombone-playing frog to a book that sings the alphabet. Our favorite is the colored keyboard that sings each color you press. The tabletop can be placed on the floor for those still in the crawling phase, or can sit on the included legs for a sturdy surface and leaning spot for little ones who are new to walking. If there is any fault with the Learning Table, it may be that it has too many features: each element of the table reacts in two different ways, depending on whether it's in Learn Mode or Music Mode. (Modes are switched by flipping the page of the book mounted in the center of the table.) Though this means more fun stuff for kids to hear, the mode concept is not one that they can be expected to understand, and the effect of the toy's inconsistent reactions is likely to be confusion. --David Stoesz ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Well worth the money!
    Bought this for my daughter at about 6 mos and she just turned one. She still plays with it! It is well worth the money. Also, it is fun to put little goodies in the open/close compartment. I put cheerios in there and she loves it!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great toy!
    This is a must! This was given to my daughter before she could walk. Not only did we take the legs off so she can play with it while sitting up, but this toy helped her pull up! We love this toy! She is a toddler now and still enjoys it and I am sure when our newborn gets older she will enjoy it the same. ***We use to put surprises in the little purple compartment!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Love this!!!!!
    Wow!! We got this for Christmas for our 4 month old and she loved it from day 1!! She loved holding herself up and standing by it and playing with it. I thought that there didn't look like very many activities but when you turn the page in the middle it makes all the gadgets do new things. Our daughter is now 1 and still plays with it all day. My husband has even caught me playing with it and singing along a few times!! I love it too!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great For Learning to Walk
    I bought this for my son when he was first starting to crawl. After I bought it he was pulling up on it and cruising/ walking around it at 7 months. He interacts with it by learning how to open the little purple lid, how to press, push, pull and how to flip the page. It is very heavy and he can push it and bang as hard as he can and it will not flip. It is also very durable, although, the purple lid can be pulled off but it is safe and it snaps back on easily. It is funny because my son cannot stand for me to reattach it because the first thing that he does is pull it back off. Highly recommended.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best table toy ever!
    My kids and any other kids that come to my home LOVE this toy. It's the first thing they got to. We've had ours for about 2 years now and when ever any one I know have a baby I get this for them as their Happy six months old gift! This is a MUST have for any kid! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best $$ ever spent-just bought 2nd
    I wouldn't be able to praise this toy enough. We gave it to our oldest daughter last Christmas when she was 3 1/2. We were concerned because of the price but compared to a GameBoy we prefered the educational aspect. We have never regreted the purchase. She loves playing with it and has even mastered basic math skills well ahead of time. We had a problem with the screen not responding after about 6 months but it only took a quick email to Leap Frog and they replaced it with our only expense being a few dollars to ship it to them. They have excellent Customer Service. We would have even invested the money to buy a new unit if they hadn't replaced it. <br /> <br /> We have just purchased a unit for our 19 month old daughter because she always wants to share big sister's. I know the age is 4-10 but our little one just loves the characters and even though she doesn't totally understand what to do, she still loves playing. It has helped her to master control of the stylus and she is now much better at coloring too. We have a few extra cartridges and plan on expanding for Christmas. <br /> <br /> We haven't had a problem with battery consumption. This toy definitely hasn't eaten batteries nearly as quickly as others and my older daughter plays with it almost every day. She would play with it more if I would allow it. But we still plan on buying the recharging system too.<br /> <br /> I highly recommend the investment in the carrying case also.<br /> <br /> You just can't go wrong with this toy.

    5-0 out of 5 stars my grandson
    I purchased the LeapFrog Leapster for my grandson as a Christmas gift when he was 2 years old. His mom gave it to him when we was 21/2, he absolutely loves it and has learned so much. I like the durability, educational theme and the add ons, it just keeps getting better and better.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Love It
    My son was given this on his 4th b-day, he absolutely loves it and so do I! It has taught him alot and the only reason I rated a 4 and not a 5 is because of the battery situation!! Ouch!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Battery Eater!
    My son got this toy for his 4th birtday. He truly loves it, but it's a battery eater! I cannot believe how quickly this toy drains 4 AA batteries. Thank goodness they are coming out with a recharging unit soon or we'd go broke!

    5-0 out of 5 stars BEST $ EVER SPENT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I've never written a review before, but feel I have to about this product. It is the BEST money spent on my daughter ever!!!! My daughter got this for Christmas when she was 3 1/2 years old. She has played with it every day. At night we read books to her and then let her do her Leapster for a little while. We just purchased The Letter Factory for our last trip....and she already knows ALL the letter is just amazing!!!!! We have never had a problem with it in 7 months...and we just put new batteries in it for the first time. I so highly reccomend this toy!!!!! ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    LeapFrog is well known for their interactive learning toys and now they've paired with Disney for a princesses' tour of language and math. Cinderella and Belle will help guide your child through various learning activities, such as: letter hunt, spelling games, addition and subtraction games, and number find. Both Belle and Cinderella tell jokes, sing songs, and are generally encouraging with sweet and cheerful voices. If your child decides to stop playing and doesn't turn the laptop off, the princesses ask, "Would you like to play some more?" and if there is no answer, the computer shuts itself off. An LCD screen displays letters, numbers, and other pictures during all the activities. Moms and dads will be glad to note that there are two volumes and virtually no set-up. Requires 4 "AA" batteries (included). --Megan Sullivan ... Read more

    Best toy in the house
    My 2 1/2 year old received this toy as a gift. She ABSOLUTELY loves her "puter". I fill my house with fun and educational toys and this one is hands down the best. She has been playing with it for a few weeks now and can sing her ABC's from A-K. All her friends want to play with it as well. I only wish they had a "boy" version so my son could have one of his own.

    Another good one from LeapFrog
    My mother and I were having a garage sale and I very much wanted to clean out and get rid of some toys. After explaining the concept to my daughter that if she sold some toys, she could buy some new ones. Well with her money, she picked this out of everything in the huge toy store. She loves it, she takes it in the car on trips, plays with it at the kitchen table while I am cooking. It's great, educational and something to grow with!

    A fun "umputer".
    I love it and I am 34yrs old.
    My 4yr old loves it. And, as far as I am concerned that is all that matters. The sound, the colors, the characters and the keys all all conducive to the purpose that it was intended for.
    I bought it for my daughter so she could use it when I was on our family computer.
    The only thing (and its not a big thing)is that I wish the screen was bigger.
    I would highly recommend it or buy it as a gift.

    Disney's Laptop by LeapFrog
    My daughter Lily got this for her 3rd birthday. We have always loved LeapFrog products. This was her favorite present, hands down. My 6 and 9 year olds even love it! I am really impressed by how many things it does. After playing with it for a day Lily can identify some letters and numbers. The music is great, and I LOVE that there is a high low switch, making it a quiet toy as well as a learning toy!

    A perfect laptop for your Princess!
    Our 3.5 yr old got this for Christmas and LOVES having "my own 'puter". It is easy for her to open for herself and she loves to hear her favorite characters speaking to her! She likes the activity that sounds out words as you type in letters, and gets so excited when she actually makes a word! She also really likes the counting activity. This laptop has been banged around and dropped several times and it is in perfect working condition. ... Read more

    6. Nintendo Gamecube Console - Limited Edition Platinum

    US | Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France | Japan Review

    Though it looks like a toy, don't be fooled: the Nintendo GameCube is a powerful video game console that rightly deserves its place among the other next-generation game systems. In fact, its playful, appealing design and small size (the unit is a not-quite-cubed 6 inches) aren't the only features that set it apart from the others.

    For starters, Nintendo has quite clearly made this a game-only machine. It doesn't try to play your CD collection, run your movies, read your e-mail, or store your MP3 files. The company has concentrated its efforts on games. All the prelaunch titles we've seen play smoothly, with bright, fast graphics and great sound. Nintendo says its engineers have removed traditional bottlenecks that have, in the past, slowed down processing. New components designed by IBM and MoSys, as well as a large-capacity secondary memory cache, keep instructions moving through the system's microprocessor (MPU) at peak levels. In English: the GameCube is optimized to push speed up while pushing costs down; hence its position at the lower end of the price spectrum.

    The GameCube is the first Nintendo video game system to use a disc-based medium rather than cartridges for its games. Moving the software to disc media generally means lower development costs for the publishers, which, in turn, trickles down to the consumer not only in price, but also in availability and quality, as it's then easier to try out untested game ideas (Pikmin, anyone?). While most other systems likewise have their games stored on discs, the GameCube's 3-inch format is smaller than everyone else's, and is so designed to fit in a shirt pocket as much as to deter would-be software pirates.

    Of course, the main advantage of the GameCube is that it's the home field of one of the world's premier game designers: Nintendo. While powerhouses Electronic Arts and Sega make games for all systems (including this one), you can play Nintendo games only on a Nintendo system. And Nintendo, you might recall, has been hitting them out of the park since it started with Donkey Kong. In fact, here's a roll call of characters and series you won't find on the other consoles: Mario, Legend of Zelda, Perfect Dark, Metroid, Kirby, and, of course, Pokémon. A few names that the GameCube will share with the other guys: Madden, Tony Hawk, Sonic, Batman, and Star Wars.

    The system also comes with four built-in controller ports, so you can easily plug in extra controllers and let friends join in for the multiplayer games--it's even got a built-in handle so you can easily move it to a friend's house. It comes with two memory card slots for saving your progress through games, and there's the capacity for future expansion into the world of online gaming.

    In short, the GameCube isn't an all-in-one entertainment system, and neither is it the most powerful of the modern video game consoles. But for video game enthusiasts who want to stick with their favorite characters, its value cannot be beat. --Porter B. Hall

    5-0 out of 5 stars One of Nintedo's Greatest Consoles
    The Nintendo GameCube is one of Nintendo's best systems to date. It doesn't try to have a ton of different accessories and other things like a DVD player and CD player like Sony did with the Playstation 2. Many say that they don't like the system for that reason. Who cares?! It's a video game system, for God's sake! It shouldn't be anything more. I'll leave it at that. Anyways, it's game are unique and memorable, and most are sequels to the greatest series of all time. Metroid, The Legend of Zelda, Super Mario, Super Smash Brothers, Sonic Adventures, and MANY MORE. This system also sports great music with it's games. The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker has a great soundtrack to support my theory.^^ The GameCube doesn't rely too much on RPG's, though those are it's strong points.^^; The controller isn't hard to use; none of it's buttons are on the back, and they're close together for easy use. The system holds much more memory than the N64, seeing as Nintendo has finally moved on to discs and not cartridges. If you like Nintendo, this system is for you. Even if you're not a Nintendo fan, get it anyway. You won't be dissapointed.^_^

    5-0 out of 5 stars A unique ride
    Consoles are bought for their exclusive games and the system's features. Halo, Xbox Live, and Knights of the Old Republic for XBox, and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Metal Gear Solid 2, and Final Fantasy X for Playstation 2. But people glaze their eyes over paying any attention to the purple box with a handle and I believe they miss out.

    Eternal Darkness, Metroid Prime, Super Mario Sunshine, Zelda: Wind Waker, Pikmin, and Super Monkey Ball 2 are 6 games that are about fun. Oddly enough, all but SMB2 are published by Nintendo. They understand what makes games fun to play with. ED offers mature gamers a deep story (disclaimer: its not as deep if the gamer doesn't ask questions or start looking up ancient history), and Pikmin offers a refreshingly new and charming strategic puzzle adventure.

    And if you like those, you'll be happy to know that every one (but ED) of those games has a known sequel in the works. If you like Metal Gear Solid, then a remake is hitting the cube this fall. If you like Resident Evil, Cube is your system. If you have fun memories of mario kart, you'll be ready to buy Mario Kart: Double Dash this year, along with the fastest futuristic racer, F-Zero. If you like RPGs, Final Fantasy Chronicles, Phantasy Star Online, Skies of Arcadia, Harvest Moon, Animal Crossing, and other very good RPGs are here or coming in a few months.

    Clearly there are a lot of exclusives for everyone. If you just want your Madden 2004, and Red Faction II, or Timesplitters 2, and Splinter Cell, then you can get those too. Check out the rest of gamecube's library: ..

    Best Console Of The 3 From good old Nintendo
    Nintendo Gamecube is a Awesome Console with some CONS explore all 3 but Gamecube is still the best.


    Games 9/10 Best Games on any Console New exclusives Like RESIDENT EVIL METROID PRIME and much more!!! Not The most games but they are really good.

    Graphics 8/10 to some morons who said GC graphics suck if you look Closely they are almost as good as XBOX games are dark thats why the graphics are good GC are light but still good.

    Controller 7/10 in my opinion they are the best comfy and are easy to use however really bad vibrations.

    Internet 4/10 Better internet than PS2 however Very few online games has Mario cark double dash for internet and PHANTASY STAR ONLINE.


    Graphics 4/10 Arent good Dreamcast graphics are almost as good as that Real Blurry and games are too dark to hide the graphics cant handle some games. Terrrible Graphics. ps2 Has good games like GTA and DDR and FIANL Fantasy Wait XBOX as GTA DDR AND FINAL FANTASY so games for ps2 are nothing.

    Games 5/10 biggest selection of games however Most of the games they have are terrible and are not worth buying. Even the best games like Wolfenstein and other good games look Terrible when on PS2

    Controller 9/10 Best Controller out there good at everything mostly fighting games.

    Internet 6/10 As quite alot of internet games really laggy and bad connection Cheap Adopter pretty good


    Games 7/10 has great games for 13+ of course xbox games are for older people Really good games

    Graphics 9/10 really good graphics nuff said

    Controller 4/10 Big Klunky Awkward Design Has alot of buttons

    Internet 10/10 has a HUGE selection of internet games has XBOX live worth the cost.


    5-0 out of 5 stars Don't forget the extra costs
    I recently decided between a Gamecube, a Playstation 2, and an Xbox. I was leaning toward PS2 since I already have a bunch of PS1 games, but that got me thinking; if a large part of a systems value is not only how good the games are, but also how MANY games you can play, doesn't it make sense to consider the cost of purchasing additional games?

    With this new consideration, I quickly chose Gamecube. Look, a major reason the decision between the three systems is so hard is because they are all good, and they all have their own unique advantages (which are hard to compare against each other when making decisions). Maybe Xbox graphics are the best, maybe PS2 lets me play games from PS1, but I was able to buy a used Gamecube (80), a used copy of NBA 2003 (15), a used copy of Tony Hawk Pro Skater 3 (9), and a new copy of Crazy Taxi (20) from Electronics Boutique. In the end, I paid only >> 4 << dollars more than getting a used PS2 with nothing.

    If you want a great system, you can pick Xbox, Playstation 2, or Gamecube. If you want a great system that you can play new games in all the time (without going broke), get the Gamecube. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Radio Flyer’s Pathfinder is the SUV of little red wagons, sporting a rugged plastic body and offering tikes a luxurious amount of towing or riding space. The wagon’s convertible seats fold down for maximum storage capacity and then flip up to comfortably accommodate two children. Webbed seatbelts ensure that children don’t bounce out when riding over rough terrain. The Pathfinder’s interior also has four built-in drink holders to keep sippy cups and juice boxes secure during the ride. The extra-long handle has a large, loop grip that even kids can control and that folds under the wagon for more compact storage. Like all Radio Flyer wagons, this one has heavy axles to handle a lot of weight, heavy-duty casters for making tight turns without tipping, and durable rubber tires that provide a soft, quiet ride. The Pathfinder measures 39-1/4 inches long, 19 inches wide, and 16-1/2 inches tall. --Cristina Vaamonde ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars #1 Wagon
    My parents bought this for my son last year for Christmas. We searched and searched for the right wagon for two toddlers. After receiving this one I would recommend no other. The heavy duty RUBBER wheels (not plastic)are great on any surface. We have a huge property and it's great to go to the garden, to the beach, and for walks. The seatbelts are a must with little ones and I don't know what I would do without them!!! This item is a must have for children and parents alike!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best Wagon Out There
    This wagon is great! My 22 month old and 8 month old love it! There are seat belts so we can go across busy roads without anyone escaping! The wheels roll beautifully and the cup holders are perfect. I would recommend this wagon to anyone looking at all the different ones out there! My older son can pull my younger son (with supervision of course) and feel like a big boy. The wagon is sturdy and smooth so there is no worry about the little one!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best Wagon
    We bought this wagon for my son for christmas last year and he was only 4 months old. Once he learned to sit well on his own we would take him for walks in it and when it was time to go inside he would cry. He absoulty loves it. Very easy to put together and wheels turn great. Easy to pull. Highly recommended.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The BEST Wagon!!
    I just bought this for my grandson and it is AWESOME! Like one mom said the seatbelts are wonderful - I have not seen another wagon with seatbelts and being 11 months old and learning to walk he is always standing up! Now I don't have to keep turning around to check on him. Everything about this wagon is perfect - the handle is long enough to pull without having to bend over; the wheels make pulling SO easy (one review said they had problems with the wheels getting stuck- not me!) and we go off road adventuring too!! - neat cupholders for his bottle - cool storage compartment for all his neat little finds along the way - WE LOVE IT! You have to go get one - you will not be sorry! It is the best investment yet as far as toys are concerned. THANK YOU RADIO FLYER!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best Wagon Ever!
    I was searching for the perfect wagon for my daughter's 2nd Birthday. We decided to purchase this one. I love the fact that it has rubber wheels for a quiet ride. I also love the fact that the seats fold down to make a flat surface. That made it great for towing all of our gear into the zoo, such as our coolers, bags, etc., and then when my daughter fell alseep we layed a blanket on top and it was a perfect place for her to rest. While she enjoyed her ride in the wagon, we were able to strap her in with the seatbelts so she wouldn't try getting out while pulling the wagon. Great price for a great wagon! ... Read more

With his cheerful demeanor and infectious laugh, Tadoffers support and encouragement and will quickly become a close and trusted friend.Besides various greetings,a squeeze of Tad's hand brings forth favorite children's songs, sung in a squeaky, high-pitched voice. --Alison Golder ...

    My 2 year old daughter got this last Christmas. My first thought was she was to old for it,I was wrong. She plays with Tad, regularly and is now 3. She love to sing to the songs. I love that it turns it self off. The batteries are still going strong.<br />

    My daughter got Baby Tad as a gift when she was 6 months old.At first she ignored it.Now she loves listening to the nursery rhymes during playtime.I would sing along with Baby Tad first then eventually my baby would hum along with us!Most helpful is the 6 minutes worth of Lullaby/Classical songs.When it's sleep time,I would just have Baby Tad play the lullabies and usually in 6 munutes my baby is asleep!We bring Baby Tad during long car trips too.The nursery rhymes keep my baby occupied when she's bored with her other toys and the lullabies help her settle into a nap when she's tired and sleepy.A true lifesaver!

    5-0 out of 5 stars We all LOVE TAD
    I love this toy. It has two volumes (loud/soft) and it plays sleepy music (you can set the minutes) and it is easy for little kids to push. My daughter got this gift at age 10 months now she is almost three and still loves to play with him. She really loves the kiss noises he makes (lips on his cheek). This was worth the MONEY!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Learning to hug
    I love this toy for the fact that it taught our 8 month old daughter to hug everything in sight. Her's makes kissing noises and says "I love you" when you press the kiss on the cheek. She was a hug enthusiast after just a few days of playing with it! Now that she is 16 months old she is starting to understand the reward system for playing with the light buttons and has learned about turning it on and off by using the hands and foot. The tunes it sings are all her favorites now. My only regret is that I didn't buy it for her sooner. ... Read more

    Music stimulates the brain and encourages early learningskills. This interactive cube lets children choose from any combinationof five different instruments--harp, French horn, piano, flute, andviolin--to collaborate on eight Mozart tunes. A solo flute might playan excerpt from "Ah! Vous Dirai-je, Maman (Twinkle, Twinkle)," or aFrench horn intone a theme from The Marriage of Figaro. Otherchoices include "Country Dance #5," "Come Sweet May," "Der Vogelfanger"(from The Magic Flute), "March in D," "Landler," and "L&agrave;Ci Darem la Mano" (from Don Giovanni). Press the "orchestra"button and hear all the instruments play together. As the songs play,each selected instrument button flashes to the beat. The sound is notorchestral quality, but you get a fair electronic approximation of eachinstrument. Operates on three AA batteries (not included). --TamiHoriuchi ... Read more

    fabulous for babies and toddlers
    My daughter loved this toy when she was six months old, and still loves it at 18 months. I have had no durability issues, and when I noticed the instruments playing out of sync I replaced the batteries, which solved the problem. I love that she can select different instruments to listen to, and that it exposes her to more than the usual canned electronic baby music... she now has a love for instrumental music! This is a fantastic addition to her toybox.

    Great music, but it doesn't hold my son's interest.
    I seem to be more interested in this toy than my 8 month old. There are lots of beautiful songs and the music is very high quality for an electronic toy. It's too bad my son doesn't like to play with it, because the music is so much nicer to listen to than any of his other toys!

    BEST toy we have, by far!
    This toy was given to me for my 1 yr old daugther. She is almost 2 yrs now, and she still LOVES playing with it. It is very durable, considering how much she tosses it (and that another baby played with it before they gave it to us). Also, we have only had to change the batteries once. We take it with us every where we go, and it has served us very well in the car - especially in those moments when she just doesn't want to be put in the car seat. It has been very educational as well, in that she can now identify each instrument by name and picture, and presses the appropriate button. She will keep playing the instruments over and over - and yet we don't get tired of it either. This is one of the best toys we have, by far.

    He loved it- while it lasted
    This toy gets my son's attention- and did since he got it for his first Christmas (9 months)- but unfortunately, it is NOT DURABLE. You cannot let the child actually play with the toy- if they throw it at all, it's history. And guess what- most babies throw things when they get excited. They tend to drop things, too- the toy is heavy for a small child. He loved the lights, and he loved pressing teh big buttons- the music is not too bad, either- but for the cost, you want it to be durable so the baby can play with it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best toy yet!
    My parents gave this to my daughter when she was three months old, and she seemed to like the musical sounds as we pressed the buttons. She is now eight months old, and she STILL loves it! It is her favorite toy. At 5 months, we would put it between her legs for balance while she learned to sit up, and she would make the music play. Now she's learning to crawl, and she always goes for this toy! The music is NOT annoying, and we enjoy listening to it as much as she does. We feel like she will enjoy this toy for a long time to come! ... Read more

    This game is sort of like Twister meets Simon Says. Lay the Hullabaloo pads around on the floor about two 'kid's feet' away from each other. The pads are different shapes and colors and have pictures and words on them. Turn on the game console and the cheerful music begins, a happy voice welcomes you to the game and then gives the simple directions you'll need to play. "Jump on a square shape," "Slide over to a red shape," "Hop to a shape with an animal on it" and so on. Then it might tell you to freeze, or to put a body part on one pad, and then a different body part on another. Then, it'll tell you that if you are on a particular pad at the end of that round, you are the winner. We found it to be fun, and easy to understand--though we did wonder how long it might hold a child's interest. --Megan Sullivan ... Read more

    Non-Stop Fun
    I bought this for my two year old's birthday. We played it with her 5,6,11,12,& 13 year old Uncles and cousins. The older kids played it all that night and all day the next day. My two year old thought it was fun to run around on the pads, but she was able to point at her nose when they said "nose" and point at her knee when they said "knee". Even some of the adults got in on the fun. Very fun game for all ages.

    IGNORE any bad review! This is AWESOME!
    My 3 year old daughter got this game as a gift and she LOVES to play! My 7 year old also LOVES this game! It is really cute and anytime they play - someone is giggling. (...). It is a good oppotrunity to teach children about being a good winner/loser no matter who wins. That said- this game is just plain fun! I've even played this one with my kids and we all have a good time. You can't go wrong with this!

    "Winners"also means there are "losers"!
    I bought this for my two 4 1/2 year-old grandchildren. They really liked it at first until one child "won" several times in a row and the other hadn't "won" at all. The idea is basically very good, but I don't like the "winners-losers" aspect at all. It's totally inappropriate for this age, and even for older children, there is nothing they can do to "win"- it's all random. In addition, I would have liked it to be a little slower paced for pre-schoolers (more time to "skip to the square" or do a dance between games, etc.). I wouldn't buy another one or advise others to do so.

    We love this game!
    My children, ages 6 and 3, got this for Christmas and are still playing it regularly. As a mom, I really love it, too, because it's one of very few games they can set up, play and put away all by themselves (great for them, and even better if I need to get something done!).

    The battery-operated box was very easy for them to learn, and they get a kick out of the silly things it instructs them to do. Many, many thumbs up from our family! :-)

    Very Fun Toy
    My kids loved this toy. Even my 2 year old could play. It is a really great family game and changes everytime you play. Lots of fun! ... Read more

    Sand & Water Fan
    Please read all reviews very carefully as most of them pertain to the "Easy Store Sand and Water Table" (which is 2 pieces). The Kingdom Table is great as it is one table with 2 areas of fun. This table provides hours of fun for the young children (and older ones as well - even me!) The plastic cover is great as it covers the entire table where the hard covers just "sit" on the box leaving room for bugs to sneak in! This is a must for those who love the beach, sand and water but not all the hassles that come with it!

    Caution: Reviews in this section apply to wrong product
    Read these reviews carefully. Some are talking about the Friendly Toys Kingdom sand and water table; others refer to a two-piece Little Tykes sand and water table that is not as well-designed.

    Regarding covers: I prefer the soft cover on the Friendly Toys Sand and Water table to the hard cover on Little Tykes sand products. The elasticized cover keeps bugs out better than the hard cover.

    Awful construction
    In theory, this is a great table and my kids like playing with it. But putting it together is nearly impossible. The two sides have to link (because the water table has only two legs) and really don't. The table has crashed on my son's feet several times. When I contacted Little Tykes, they said "Yeah, that's hard to put together." The water side needs four legs or it needs to have a metal dowel that the water side can turn around. I would NOT recommend this product unless they fix this HUGE design flaw. I'm disappointed; Little Tykes products are not usually like this.

    Great product just one small set back
    My 2 year old loves this table. It's a great size, easy to assemble, easy to clean. Be careful with the flag inserts on the corners. One time she bent down to pick up a toy next to the table and one of the flags almost poked her eye. We were lucky it just poked the side of her eye. We still use the table, just without the flags.

    too hard to hook together
    My son loves this table, but I don't love trying to hook the water part to the sand part. It always seems to come apart, and the water side goes crashing to the ground. ... Read more

    If you grew up with a Radio Flyer wagon but lost it along the way, here's your chance to own abrand new one. The body and sides are made of finished wood. Painted bright red, the stake sides simplylift out, leaving you with a natural-finish flatbed. Steel wheels with big, inflatable pneumatic tires rolleasily on pavement or rough terrain. At 33.5 inches, the extra-long handle makes turning easy. The wagonbed is 36 inches long, 15 inches wide, 9 inches high, and 21 inches from the ground to the top of thewagon. The durable-tread rubber tires are 10.5 inches in diameter and 3 inches wide. If you're lucky, yourchild might let you borrow this wonderful wagon. --Louise Carter ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Very satisfied
    This wagon was my second pick, but has ended up being my first choice! The wooden wagon bed stays cool even in the hot summer sun (unlike a metal bed), and the tall wooden sides keep "exploring" babies in their proper place. My son loves riding around in this wagon, and it has room enough for all of his favorite toys too. Walks are smooth and quiet (no rattling parts) and the large tires really make this wagon a pleasure to pull.

    Great Wagon for Growing Families
    We bought this wagon when we found out that we were expecting our third child. Since our oldest had just turned 2 when we found out about baby 3, we figured that we needed a way that we could safely transport three small children to and from the park, around the zoo, etc.

    This wagon has been great. We've brought it to the zoo lots of times, and it fits right into the back of the minivan once you remove the siderails. The kids absolutely love to ride in it, and are looking forward to getting the cooler and the wagon trailer.

    Wagon Canopy
    ... It looks like it cames from the horse and buggie era LOL but it covers the entire wagon definately worth it. I love this wagon but i am some what worried about the paint flaking off as i have read, but will make sure to cover the paint with car wax as told on the radio flyer site. We love this radio flyer! Its big you can fit everything in it!

    Great #29 Wagon
    I can't say enough good things about this wagon, but I also wanted comment on finding the correct wagon pad that will fit it. The pad sold through this site does not fit. You need to find the pad made specifically for Radio Flyer model #29, which I easily located through other online merchants. It is worth the effort to get the pad as it seems to make the ride much more comfortable and makes the wagon a good napping locale too.

    My daughter just turned 1. She got this as a present and loves it. It is a smooth ride on all types of terrain. We go to the park, the beach and around the block. There is plenty of room for all the extra stuff you want to take along. There is even enough room for a friend and their stuff too. I would recommend this wagon over the steel one to anyone. It is a quiet ride and there is no chance of rust since it is made of wood. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars A must-have for a new infant
    I put my infant down on this playmat from day one. I didn't really believe she'd enjoy it -- I just thought I'd try it. She loved it from day one. I also bought a Fisher Price Kick and Crawl Barn. The Gymini is far superior. The Gymini toys are soft and covered with patterns babies love. The Fisher Price toys are hard plastic. The first time my baby's hand hit that hard plastic, I put the "Barn" away. She loved the mirror on the Gymini first, and now she bats at all the toys. She's two and a half months old and we've used the Gymini EVERY DAY since she was born. It goes to grandma's house with her because she loves it so much. I also don't have to feel bad about not interacting with her when I put her down on the mat because it's such a good learning toy. Also, my friends have a 5 month old and she loves the mat too. If you're having a baby soon, do yourself a favor and get this toy!

    My son loves this so much! As soon as we lay him on the mat he smiles as soon as he realizes where he is! Coincidentally, he also loves his Tiny Love crib mobile.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The best investment in infant entertainment/development
    I LOVE THIS TOY AND SO DOES MY SON!! I bought this when he was 10 weeks old. At first he liked looking at the black & white patterns (he would follow me with his eyes as I carried past him). Within a couple of weeks he started getting the hang of it. He gets so excited now batting at the toys and his little legs kick with excitement. This is excellent for tummy time too (and might offer him the incentive to roll over to play with the toys overhead as it did for my guy). EXCELLENT CHOICE - WELL WORTH THE $$!!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Mommy's best friend!
    I got this for a baby shower gift and it has been one of the most valuable things I received! When I originally registered for this, I thought it was overpriced, but it is well worth the money. I have a 7 week old daughter and she absolutely LOVES her gymini. She will play under this anywhere from a half hour to an hour. She loves to look at herself in the mirror and it keeps here entertained for some time. There are many places to add more toys to the gymini, too. I change them and switch them around to give her a little variety. The only complaint I have about this is that the musical toy does not work at all. I think I must have gotten a defective one, but my daughter still loves to look at it. This is great for little ones who are not able to do a whole lot yet... keeps them very entertained.

    This was a baby shower gift off of my registry. I put it on my registry because of all the awards it got, etc.... I can honestly say that this was one of the best toys. This toy was my son's favorite toy until he was 10 months old...even at that age he still liked it but I had to put it away because he was trying to pick it up and bend it. When my son was around 3 or 4 months old he would sometimes lay on this for an hour at a time...this toy helped him learn to roll over and how to grab for objects....This is a must! ... Read more

    Did you know that painted ladies (the butterflies, that is) taste with their feet and have 10,000 eyes? You and your kids will be fascinated by all you learn about these beautiful creatures with the Butterfly Garden from Insect Lore. The kit comes with a relatively easy-to-assemble observation chamber; supplies for feeding the butterflies (you provide only sugar and water); an informative booklet of clear instructions and butterfly facts; and a certificate for three to five free painted lady caterpillars. The metamorphosis from larva to butterfly takes about three weeks from when you receive the caterpillar larvae (which arrive in a small container with all the nutrients they need). Your children can watch the larvae increase dramatically in size, form chrysalides, and finally emerge into full-fledged painted ladies (it's suggested that they release the butterflies after a few days of observation). This would make a wonderfulactivity for families with kids of any age, but younger children will need help assembling the observationchamber and reading the instruction booklet. (Note: The manufacturer recommends that butterflies should not be set free in temperatures lower than 55 degrees Fahrenheit.) --Rachel Radway ... Read more

    I bought one of these last year for my nieces. I also got one for me, and I'm in my 30's. I waited until the spring time to send in my caterpillar certificate. They came in their own little container with just enough food. So you don't need to feed them anything. I tried to put some real food such as leaves from the plants they like to eat in the wild, but they preferred the food that came with them. I think I received 6 caterpillars and they all turned into butterflies. I let them go a day or two after they emerged. Kids are completely fascinated by the process from caterpillar to chrysalis to butterfly. One word of caution, it may not be the best thing to get for Christmas since you may have to wait until spring to get your caterpillars. They will send them in the winter, but I didn't want the butterflies to die on me or freeze to death if I let them go.

    Our kids loved this
    Our daughters received the Butterfly Garden from their grandfather. The whole family really enjoyed the entire process from catepillar to butterlfy. Very educational for the kids. Unfortunately, though we had three cocoons, only one of the butterflies actually survived. Nevertheless, this is a great gift and one I just bought for my nephew.

    Tons of Fun and Educational too!
    My daughter received this toy from her cousin. She is 5. At first my son was a little grossed out by the worm looking caterpillars but once they grew and I pinned the paper disc with the attached chrysalides to the netted garden, it was worth it. My 2 kids just sit there and watch. It's better than TV. One caterpillar died but 3 have already emerged. My daughter has named the three butterflies and she loves watching "Crystal" balance herself on the orange wedge that she placed in the hut. I find myself checking on them at least 4 times a day because it is so interesting. We are waiting for the last one to emerge before we set the other three free. My daugher doesn't want the last one to be lonely.

    A wonderful combination of fun and education
    My daughter had a wonderful time learing about butterflies and watching them emerge. This is a fantastic teaching tool, with clear instructions and easy to use equipment. I can't rave enough about this toy!!!!

    WOW! This thing is cool!
    I recieved my Butterfly Garden yesterday and boy, was I excited! The pop-up mesh butterfly habita is so neat. I've always wanted one! I sent away for my caterpillars today. If you want to give something or get something GREAT, the Butterfly Garden is a good idea! :) ... Read more

    15. Kiddio Supertrike 4

    4-0 out of 5 stars Many of the Features of the Costlier Versions
    I purchased the Supertrike 4 after seeing the top-of-the-line Kiddio trikes at the mall. I was impressd by the features, but the cost was a little high. I am very happy with the combination of features and value offered by the Supertrike 4. The seat, inflatable rubber tires, "dump truck" bed, and hand brake are identical to the higher end Kiddio trikes. The design is not as "tank-like", but it looks to me that the Super Trike 4 is very strong, and actually will be a bit lighter than the higher end versions. The grey/blue/yellow color scheme is a little less vibrant.

    I was also happy that the push bar comes included with the price of the trike, not as a separate purchase. The bar works well. My daughter is a tall 2 1/2 year old, and in the shortest seat position (there are two), the trike is just a bit too long, so there is plenty of room to grow. The rubber tires are smooth and quiet on my driveway, and I even pushed her around the grass. The steering is limited so the front tire can't rotate too much and cause a tip hazard. The trike seems very stable. Unlike the more expensive versions, the front wheel cannot free wheel, so your child always has to pedal, or take their feet off the pedals.

    Tools are provided for assembly, which took me about 45 minutes. The directions are fairly clear. Hopefully this will save people some time: The seat has a 3-point safety harness, and the procedure is to screw the harness to the seat. The assembly instructions show holes in the harness straps and seat. They don't exist. Little indents in the plastic seats indicate where you should put the screws. It turns out you can just screw right through the nylon strap with no problem, so you don't need the holes in the strap. The plastic of the seat gives and then forms a tight fit with the screw. So you don't need the holes there either. It took me a few minutes to stop looking for the holes and just try it.

    Overall my daughter seems very happy with the Supertrike 4, it seems well-built, and I am happy with the features for the price.

    Don't worry
    I'm not calling anyone a liar or anything but I have this trike and it is next to freaking impossible to "get your foot stuck between the pedal and the wheel". Also you have to be an idiot to not be able to put this thing together. The trike ships in basically four pieces. With a ratchet you can put it together in 15 minutes no problem. Best value of all the Kettler trikes. Inflatable tires a huge difference. If you need the coaster wheel pay double to get a "real" Kettler model. Other than that this one is close to perfect

    I was in the market for a tricycle for my daughter's 2nd b-day.
    I was going to buy a Radio Flyer, but the one I was looking at got bad reviews. So I found this Kiddio, had wonderful reviews!
    Bought it, received it, put it together by myself (2 hrs). It was by far the hardest thing I ever put together!:( Next bike I buy will already be operational!! that's for sure!!
    When my daughter and I tested it out, she was steering, so I COULDN'T!!! Not Good!! and we all of a sudden came to a dead stop, her foot was stuck between the wheel and pedal!! She wasn't hurt.:)

    great bike for my son who has autism
    We were looking for a bike for my younger son as he wanted to get on his elder brothers bike, so we thought he is ready for a bike and took him to toysrus there he just went and sat on this bike,and ever since we bought it home he loves it very much, he gets on the bike and asks me to take him out for ride in the evenings, this is a good sized one as my son is 2and1/2yr old is 42in and weighs around 38lbs, and as i said he is diagonised with ASD(autism spectrum disorder) so he wont stay in one place and wants to wander all around, but the belt on the bike helps him to stay in seat.
    The only thing i didnt get is how to use the brakes on the bike other wise its really good one though bit pricey.

    Great bike!
    We just bought this bike for our two year-old. He was aprehensive about the pedals at first, but now he says "wheeee" as his feet go around and around. He's a little short at this time, but he will grow into it. I love the handle as it is easy to push and steer. It was worth the money. ... Read more

    It may not feature any loop-de-loops or terrifying hairpin turns, butpreschoolers will likely find this 10-foot-long roller coaster every bit asthrilling as grownups find the amusement park version. Molded in brightlycolored plastic, it's built for years of wear in either the backyard or theplayroom. The set's components fit together to form a downhill ride with anothersmaller hill about halfway through. What we loved most about this set is thefact that the individual parts are just as much fun as the fully assembled kit.The car, bright yellow with a sturdy handle, could just as easily be used aroundthe house if the child is too young for the coaster. And the ramp system isplenty of fun to roll cars, balls, or anything else. Perhaps our tiny toy testersaid it best: "Wheee!" --John Moe ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Hours of Fun for your Little One!
    The Step 2 Up and Down Roller Coaster is a great toy, and yes, is hours of fun. The first day we brought ours home, our 14 month old had taught herself to climb the steps, hang onto the handle bars, and push herself off to get the coaster to move. The steps are easy for a little child to climb, and even if they fall, it's a VERY short distance, I sincerely doubt a child could get hurt on this. Our little one is now 17 months old, and the fun factor has not worn off. She now can push the coaster back to the top of the ramp, to go for another ride.....she's very independant, and this toy has been perfect for her. I think it's helped her and her urge to do everything on her own, and since it's an easy toy for children to crawl on, play with, they CAN do it on their own! Durable, easy to assemble, it maybe took us all of 5 minutes to get it together, and it moves easily. Washable, and our dogs have put the coaster and track to the torture test, cannot hurt this toy! Highly suggest buying this. Plus, when she outgrows it, I know it'll hold up a long time, to be passed on to another child. Also, the coaster car can be ridden off of the coaster track, making it double as a great first "bike". We often see our little one riding it around the yard!

    5-0 out of 5 stars great investment
    we bought this for our sons 2 year birthday. we had it out at his party and all of the kids loved it. it is a safe toy that kids of all ages can have fun with.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
    This toy was given to my then 2 year old daughter for her birthday. she just turned 5 and still loves it. To make things even more enjoyable, her older sister and brother love it. They are now 9 and 6 1/2 and still love to play with it. I took a ride on it and I loved it. They also have taken their silly pins and put them at the end and rolled the ball. They call the game rock and roll bowling. You can put it together in a "snap" and can easily be taken apart and stored.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Fun toy
    My 2 year old got this for his Bday. I wasn't too sure about it at first because it is so big and the steps seemed like they could be dangerous. I was completely wrong! It may be big, but it is perfectly safe. He and the neighbor kid love to ride this and then enjoy pushing it up the ramp. They also like to send other toys down the ramp! I see this as a toy that is going to last many years!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome!
    Bought this for my oldest daughter when she was 27 months old. She loved it. My one year old didn't show much interest. But, just three months later, she loves it too! It's durable, easy to assemble and your kids will learn how to push the car back to the top. Too much fun! ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    With a little help from a bigger friend (parent, guardian…), young children can launch into the world of learning via interactive books. Little Touch LeapPad is designed for tots 6 to 36 months, with three distinct levels of activities and stories: musical rhythms and sounds; short descriptive phrases; and rhymes and early learning. Stories or activity cards snap into the book frame, along with a story cartridge. Grownups will need to help little ones activate the book pages by touching the "Go" button every time a page is turned, as well as showing young "readers" how to touch pictures to make them come to life with developmentally appropriate narration and learning activities. A comfy cushion is attached to the LeapPad platform for cozy shared reading time. Four AA batteries required (not included). --Emilie Coulter ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Good pics, but too hard
    I loved the idea of this toy, and thought it would be incredibly beneficial for my daughter (who's had it since 6 months). She is now a year old and still cant push the buttons, it just takes too much strength! I have tried pushing the buttons with her finger and I almost feel as though Im hurting her to try and show her how. She loves the boks and sounds, but it doesnt hold her attention as she is very independent and wants to do it herself. The books and pictures, however, are great. I would recommened the keypad have sensitive settings, (maybe 3 levels of sensitivy) so it would be VERY sensitive to the touch of a baby, and maybe require more strength as they grow and understand. Otherwise they lose all the cause & effect learning from it! Overall, I dont regret the purchase, just feel it is not age-appropriate.

    3-0 out of 5 stars For my daughter
    I bought this for my daughter at 18 months for christmas. She could not push the buttons herself and did not want to push the go button everytime she turned the page. It holds her attention about 10 min although she does like turning the pages and just reading the stories. At 31 months she likes it a little better but still does not have the patience to press the go button each time.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Somewhat Dissapointed
    I bought this for my daughter at 10 months old. I ended up putting it away until she was 20 months. At 21 months she is showing some interest and finally has the strength to push on the pages to make it work.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great toy for future book lovers
    My daughter has loved the LeapFrog Little Touch since she received it last Christmas. It's a great child/parent toy and the ability to interact with your kid is a big plus. In fact, I miss the days when she needed me to push the buttons for her.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good Toy
    This is a great toy which requires your interaction at some level. My son is 1 and he just got this for his birthday. He does fine with it by himself, but to fully utilize the toy, we read and play with it together. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Toys that grow with your child from infancy to toddlerhood are well worth their cost. The Classical Chorus Gym is one such toy, allowing your child to explore music at every stage of his development. As an infant, your child can lay on his back and bat at the hanging toys while the keyboard plays 10 different classical or nursery melodies, some with a children’s chorus. You can set the music to play continuously for up to 10 minutes, or only when your child successfully hits a toy, teaching him cause and effect. When your child learns to sit, the keyboard adjusts with him to the proper height, and then adjusts one more times to accommodate a standing or walking child. At these stages, you can set the music to play part of a song when your child presses a key or let your child experiment with scales and individual notes. The keyboard’s "singing" stars light up as music plays to further delight budding musicians. The Classical Chorus Gym requires three "C" batteries for operation. --Cristina Vaamonde ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Extremely Versatile
    We bought this toy when our son was just two months old and he loves it. We are at five months now and he still gets a huge kick out of it.
    There are so many ways to play! At first we'd lay him on his back an he would swat at the dangling rattles. They are bright and attention-getting. When he'd hit one, music would play and the lights would flash; it kept his attention. It didn't take much effort, and helped develop his coordination. There aren't many toys a two-month-old will play with. Then he learned that he could push the buttons to play and change songs.
    The toy is re-positionable, so it can be used when the baby is laying down, with the rattles hanging. Tilt it at 45 degrees and sit him in a bouncer or car seat under it. At 90 degrees when he's standing (we still have to help him stand). And with a switch in the legs' configuration, it can be positioned so that he sits and plays.
    There are (at least) 6 sound modes, ranging from one button playing a whole song, through pressing buttons that prompt a song to continue, to one button being a single tone (like a keyboard).
    We love this toy and so does our son. It is good for just about everything except tummy time. We expect to get at least a year out of the developmental value.
    Just another two things about it: it is very sturdy construction, but not a good toy to balance or lean on, and it is EASY to reconfigure.

    It Grows With Your Child !
    Another must have for every new parent !

    We bought when dd was several months old, however we were still able to get some use out of the hanging toy feature. She loved it because she could control the music when it stopped. We also found that she would try to reach beyond the hanging toys and press the piano keys.

    Then as she got older, we would sit her in front of the piano inside her boppy. She loved the fact that she was playing upright and would constantly watch all the colors. The keys on the piano were nice and big for her to hit as she gained more control of her hands.

    Then as she got to the standing age, she would use this tall piano to stand up with. We never had a problem with it tipping over because the legs seemed to be positioned just right to prevent this from happening. As the months went on, she would push the piano throughout the house when she didn't feel like using her activity walker. Several months ago she began to press keys on setting 2 and she would dance to the music. Now at 20 months she tries to sing along with the songs (ie Twinkle Twinkle Little Star) and also recites the colors as they light up.

    The variety of songs is great. You don't really get tired of them. Also, we've had for almost 18 months and have never needed to replace the batteries yet.

    We very seldom use setting 3 (the one that lets you play it like a real piano) because we have a real piano that she tries to play.

    The entertainment and educational value on this toy cannot be compared. It's so nice that it grows with your child. We definitely feel like we got our monies worth ! It has proved to be extremely durable!

    A couple minor complaints that I have is that there is no volume control. Sometimes it does seem as though it's a bit loud. Also the orange plastic piece that snaps in above the keyboard doesn't really seem to provide any value. DD just kept pulling it off and found that the force of pulling would cause her to fall backwards to the floor - - after several times of doing this, we decided to just not put it back on.

    Great toy - great value ! !

    A great beginning toy
    We got this toy as a gift and my daughter has loved it ever since she was just a few weeks old. She started out watching the lights on the mirrored attachment and has loved every feature; the dangling toys, the keyboard, the music. I was even able to turn it into a kicking toy. She loves to kick the keyboard and make it play. It keeps her attention for LONG spans of time.

    My daughter's favorite toy!
    We bought this toy when my daughter was 5 months old. She is now 16 months old and STILL loves it. It was one of the first toys that she played with when she was an infant. It helped her to learn to control her legs. It's not a "battery hog" either, even if you forget to turn it off, like we do. It also breaks down for easy travel.

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this toy!
    My son loves this toy. We've had it since he was 4 months old and he is now 9 months old. He plays with it everyday. It entertains him for hours on end. I would say this is the best toy we have. ... Read more

    This award-winning globe could help children become A+ geographystudents. The Explorer Globe II is jam-packed with hundreds of facts, trivia,and useful scholastic information about every aspect of the geographical world.It electronically verbalizes everything from area population, capitolcity/country, state/province, large bodies of water, currencies, high points,distance, and more. Other remarkable features make the Explorer an even moreuseful reference tool. It has a world clock that, once set from your home area,will tell the time in every other part of the world. And any country can beselected to hear a sample its national music (yes, Tahiti does have a nationalanthem). The globe sits on a sturdy base, which features a dashboard full ofinteractive functions and an attached soft-tipped stylus. This stylus is the keyinstrument: use it to touch virtually any point on the surface of the globe toretrieve information. --Diane Beall ... Read more

    Best present my kids ever got
    I'm not one for electronic toys, normally. But this globe is terrific. The second day after she received it, my 6-year-old had learned all the continents and oceans, and could find each of them within two or three seconds after the globe called them out. She's working on countries now. Her first-grade class had to make a collection of 100 items of their choice. She chose to collect 100 country names, which she patiently copied from the globe while listening to music snippets and basic facts about each one. Last month, we read that geologists believe India was once a seperate island, which eventually crashed into mainland Asia. I asked her what mountain range was made during that crash, and she barely paused before answering the Himilayas. And what's the biggest mountain in the Himilayas? Mt. Everest.

    But the best part is when the kids go to bed. Then I get to challenge my wife to Eureka, to see who can find the most countries, cities and continents as they are called out randomly by the globe. She always wins. But I'm improving, and one of these days....

    My only complaint (like many of the other reviewers) is that the globe started malfunctioning after several months. In our case, the sensors must have shifted inside the globe so that instead of giving you information for the country you select, it tells you about it's neighbor 2 inches to the left. But the company will replace the globe for free...I just had to ship it back to them at my own cost (no big deal). Many people complain about the Stylus failing. But a replacement stylus is pretty cheap. And if you play with it as much as we do, you can't expect it to last forever, can you?

    Pity!! Good toy that doesn't last
    This interactive globe is really good at introducing geography to the kids. It's a real pity that the pointer's touch system becomes insensitive after regular use. Toy lasted less than 3 months.

    Fun but broke after a few months
    Defintely a great concept but the touch pen quit working after about half a year. Now its just a plain globe. Ratings are based on function level after it quit working, since I found many similar sotries on the web. Sad the quality is so LOW. It would be all 5s otherwise

    Be Careful Before you Spend Your $100
    It's frustrating really. We purchased an explorer globe for our son who loved to play the states game in the Lap Pad book. We used it a total of 4 times in 6 months because once we got it we realized it wasn't quite at his level, (he was just 5). We put it up and when a friend came over whom was interested in purchasing one for her son, I let her try it out. It turned on just fine, but the pen would not work. I changed the batteries but with no luck. It worked randomly for a few times after that but it no longer works at all. We have had it for only a year and it has been used no more then 10 times. Leap Frog only warrants their products for 3 months. Our 3 months were up and their was nothing we could do about. We spent $100 on what was supposed to be a great, long term educational product, unfortunately not even the company that makes it can back it up. Their goes another $100 wasted on this company. We're done spending money on their products. Note: Watch out for Leapster and Leap Pad products as well.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Very educational and fun

    Hide & Slide Climber by Little Tikes
    I like the product for its durability, but thought the kids (age 1 & 2 1/2) would play with it more. I think it is a little overpriced for what you get.

    Happy Mommy
    I just got this climber/slide! My 17 month old went nuts over it! It's perfect for my little girl to do her favorite thing (climb) and she figured out how to sit and slide with no problems. It fits great in her playroom and feels very sturdy. I am very pleased with this purchase. My favorite things about it are all the giggles, squeals and smiles! Yay Little Tikes!

    Baby loves Hiding and Sliding
    I bought this slide when my son was 14 months old. He loves it. We keep it inside since it is so cold and wet outside right now. It doesn't take up *too* much room in spare bedroom. He loves climbing up and down the steps. He is learning the steps of how to slide (1st sit down, then get one foot in front, then the other, then scooch forward). Just as the product name implies, he loves hiding under it and surprising me and playing peekaboo around the corners. It was a snap to put together maybe 15 minutes tops - if a piece is fitting too snuggly follow the directions and put a little soap on it to help it snap into place. I think son will enjoy this product for some time!

    Perfect for little climbers!
    Santa left this piece of equipment for our 15 month old son who was beginning to climb on everything. It was the first thing he saw on Christmas morning and was overjoyed. He spent a half hour exploring and climbing on it right away. He loves to play peekaboo and hide things on the top shelf or underneath.
    We put it together in our (admittedly oversized) playroom, so he can have a gross motor playtoy indoors for inclement days. Though a young child should always be supervised on any climbing apparatus, I did just order a gym mat for the bottom of the slide, as the angle is steeper than forty-five degrees and provides a fast ride with a quick stop. It's also a nice way for practicing going up and down stairs.

    good for all ages
    We bought this slide for our daughter's first birthday and she loves it! She had just mastered walking and was starting to climb on our furniture, etc. This slide provided a safe indoor climbing outlet and has improved her coordination immensely. Her older cousins love it too.

    The features I like best are the platform at the top of the slide and the fact that there is a bit of thrill in the slope of the slide: The platform allows kids to safely hang out (and seems like a fort) and the slide is tall enough that it envokes lots of giggles!

    Be careful where you set it up as it is VERY difficult to get through a standard door frame. ... Read more
