My kids aren’t babies anymore but looking back it’s amazing to remember how much they grew, changed, and developed in such a short window. From the first smile to running across the park, those first few years are a whirlwind of change. Fisher Price understands and have developed Laugh & Learn products incorporating Smart Stages.
Level 1 – Smart Stage 1 (6+ months) is about exploration, where baby loves to explore new sights and sounds over and over (and over) again.
Level 2 – Smart Stage 2 (12+ months) is about encouragement as babies start to talk, imitate and follow simple directions.
Level 3 – Smart Stage 3 (18+ months) is about pretend and imagination.
The new Laugh & Learn Smart Stages invite playful learning based on the different stages of a child’s development. The toys are designed to grow with your child’s learning making it like three toys in one.
“Babies go through three stages of learning in their early development phase – explore encourage, pretend,” says Dr. Weber. “These levels are reflected in Laugh & Learn Smart Stages – from Level One, where babies are exploring first words and sounds that spark their curiosity; to Level Two, where babies are encouraged and promoted through questions and simple direction; and Level Three, where babies are fully immersed in imaginative fun and early role-play.”
Some examples of the new Laugh & Learn Smart Stages toys:
The Puppy’s Smart Stages Home (6-36 months). Just baby’s size, this two-sided little house encourages interactivity and exploration. Plus parent’s can enter a child’s age to ensure learning activities are appropriate based on the child’s development stage, updating automatically.
The Smart Stages Crawl Around Car (6-36 months). A popular classic has been updated with Smart Stages. Parents can manually enter their child’s age for appropriate learning activities.
The Smart Stages Chair (12+ months). Baby’s special seat knows when she sits or stands, plays 50 songs, phrases and sounds based on baby’s development stage (based on parent’s entering their child’s age) plus more fun.
