To me, one of the clearest signs of a great company is that it offers products that have been used and loved for generations. My very first toy, bought for me by my mother a month before I was even born, was a Fisher-Price Happy Apple and that toy was passed down through every other child in our family and then on to my oldest son. A toy like that is impressive not just because of its durability, but even more so because it has appeal that has proven itself to be timeless.
Recently, Fisher-Price has released a list of twelve Fisher-Price Favourites, gear and toys that have withstood the test of time with proven universal appeal, and as soon as I looked through the list, I could see why the items had been chosen. Take the Discover ‘n Grow Jumparoo, for instance. My first experience with this activity-filled bouncing chair was when my oldest son was less than a year old. I comment often on the high energy levels of my boys and that was true even when they were infants. Zackary absolutely adored his Jumparoo and would bounce in it so energetically that sometimes I expected to see it leave the ground! In fact, he loved it so much that I sometimes let him eat his meals in it to keep him happy.
The Little People Animal Sounds Farm is another prime example of a Fisher-Price product that generations of kids have loved. I am a huge fan of storytelling through play and when Zackary first started learning about farm animals, we used to spend hours lying on the floor with the pig, horse, cow, sheep, chicken and farmer in the set making up stories about their adventures on the farm. But the best part was that years later, when Benjamin started showing an interest in the animals, Zackary played the same types of games with him. I used to love just sitting on the couch listening to the stories that the two of them created; they were always so much more imaginative than the stories I would have invented!
