Many of you will remember the Fisher Price Beat Bo – it was last years Christmas must have toy, and featured highly on the wish lists of tots all over the country. This year, Beat Belle has joined the team, and we have been trying her out at home.
A press of her tummy or the buttons on her feet activates fun songs, dance moves and learning rhymes.
As well as all the usual moves and grooves you expect from an musical learning toy, Beat Belle has an added function. The customised Record & Remix function allows your little one to record a song or phrase, which Beat Belle will then play back to them, along with some background music.
Max loves this feature, and uses it daily. He loves hearing words repeated back to him, and he often asks us to say words or phrases for him to listen to. This is great for aiding speech and development, and introduces letters, colours, counting, music and cause and effect.
Eliza loves Beat Belle too, and carries her around a lot. Her antennae are the perfect size for little hands to grab hold of, and the buttons are big and chunky, making them easy for small hands to operate. It is freestanding, so a good option for babies who are sitting up, as well as being suitable for older babies and toddlers. In fact, the Fisher Price Beat Belle toy is an ideal option for any age, from stimulating very young babies, to teaching older tots colours, numbers and more.
If you are stuck for Christmas present ideas, we would definitely recommend the Fisher Price Bright Beats Dance and Move Beat Belle – your little one won’t be disappointed to find this under the tree!
