Little ones won’t be able to resist the cheerful sounds, bright colors, and whimsical shapes of the new DiscoverSounds Shape, Sort & Scatter Toy from Little Tikes.
The toy itself is designed like a fish bowl with six cut-out openings for shape sorting.
The fish bowl friends are fun and friendly water creatures, each with a different color, texture and shape to be explored.
There are three modes of play:
Free Play – Drop the shape into the top and the toy counts them. Push shapes through the matching holes and it will identify the color and shape.
Directed Play – The toy directs the child to insert a color/shape into the matching hole.
Race the Clock – The countdown begins and the child has 6 seconds to place the color/shape into the matching hole. If incorrect, the shapes will scatter so the child can start over.
The clam in the center glows green with correct answers. The voice is super encouraging and really cheers kids on as they play.
When an answer is wrong, the clam glows red and the floor drops and scatter the shapes. Kids won’t even mind, because it’s fun when the shapes scatter! You can also push the Little Tikes button to drop the floor and scatter them yourself!
Turn the switch off on the bottom, and then the fishy friends can be stored inside the fish bowl between play sessions.
One of my favorite features of the toy is that you can choose the language: English, Spanish, or French. That adds yet another educational dimension.
The toy stands at the perfect height for sitting babies to play with, and the base is weighted and sturdy so that it won’t topple over easily.
It uses 4 AA batteries (included), and there’s an on/off switch on the bottom of the base. There’s also a volume control switch, something most parents will love.
Buy It! Perfect for ages 9 months and up, the DiscoverSounds Shape, Sort & Scatter Toy can be purchased for $29.99 at Little Tikes.
One lucky reader will win the Little Tikes DiscoverSounds Shape, Sort & Scatter Toy!
