An inspired toy that's just plain fun - and quite a bit more.,
This review is from: LeapFrog Spin & Sing Alphabet Zoo Ball (Baby Product)
This is a superb idea for a toy. You can see it just as a fun thing to play with or as having the potential for learning later in a baby's life and development. It has 3 modes of working ...
(1) When it stops it plays a voice saying the letter that is shown. (and 'Z' is said as 'zed' and not 'zee'). If it lands on the @ you hear a delightful giggle.
(2) When it stops it plays either an animal noise for the animal whose picture is shown, or a sound effect or musical riff. (Well, what would YOU play for an X-ray fish or a turtle???)
(3) When it stops, it plays parts of the traditional 'alphabet song'. It doesn't matter where the toy stops, the song parts are played in sequence.
There are also two volume settings and the battery compartment is sealed with a single screw so there's no risk of a baby grabbing a battery and putting it in their mouth.
Our own grandaughter is just over 9 weeks and started off just watching and gurgling when her Mum spun the wheel. Now she is learning to bat it for herself and make it work. The blend of concentrated looks and happy gurgles is not only a delight but also testament to the potential value of this wonderful toy.
Leapfrog also make a music table ..... so that's Christmas sorted!!
