Shopping for gifts for infants can be tricky because they grown and change so fast. When I pick out a toy, I want it to be fun for a little one right away, but I also want it to be useful for more than just a few months. Fisher-Price has always done a great job of putting lasting appeal into its toys and now with the new Smart Stages series, the company has gone a step further with toys designed to grow with your child!
I recently received the Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn Smart Stages Vacuum so that I could see for myself what these toys were like. Suitable for children from 12-36 months, there is plenty to keep kids entertained with this toy. I loved that it featured over thirty different songs, tunes and phrases so that there would be plenty of variety to help keep little ones interested.
The first learning stage that occurs with this toy is an exploratory one. The first sounds and words pique a baby’s curiosity and encourage him to continue exploring with the toy. The second learning stage is encouragement. Simple questions and directions encourage interaction and learning. The third learning stage, and one toddlers are sure to love, is pretending. Imaginative play is always fun for older toddlers as they emulate the actions of their parents.
The Laugh & Learn Smart Stages Vacuum features three different buttons to teach different basic concepts as well. Kids can choose from Letter, Number and Music settings as they play. Each of the three Smart Stage learning settings features different reactions as children press the Letter, Number and Music buttons.
Fisher-Price wants to let you surprise a special little one this Christmas, so the company is very generously offering one lucky Mommy Kat and Kids reader their own Laugh & Learn Smart Stages Vacuum, a $25 value! To enter to win, just leave a blog comment about your favourite feature of this toy.
The Smart Stages line ranges from small and simple toy trains and laptops to more large and elaborate chairs and play houses, but all of them are designed to adjust to the different learning levels of your child and provide a variety of entertaining and educational options for different ages. If you want a Christmas gift that your baby will enjoy for more than just a few months, a Fisher-Price Smart Stages toy is a great choice this holiday season.

I like that it would give my son his own and he’d stop trying to play with our cleaning equipment :)

I love that there are different stages.My little guy would love to pretend he is cleaning away . He already uses the broom so this would be fun for him .
I like that my son can have his own vacuum while I’m vacuuming so that he will stop holding onto mine!
