Pros: Lights, Music, Action! Very Entertaining! On/Off Switch! Simple enough for baby!
Cons: Too sensitive to vibrations!
I found this entertaining toy at Amazon.com. The V-Tech Little Smart Light-Up Carousel is great! It keeps my children entertained (not for hours, but for a few minutes at least). Both my sons enjoy playing with this toy.
The carousel has a blue base with an on/off switch and five buttons. The buttons are different colors with animals, shapes, and the numbers 1 through 4. There are four horses on the carousel. The riders include a red cat, a blue dog, a white rabbit, and a yellow duck. The canopy is yellow with a pink plunger.
Pushing the plunger will cause the carousel to spin whether it is on or off. It is easy for the baby to push the plunger and play with this toy. When off, the horses go around and around. When on, the horses go around and around while music plays and the lights come on. When the buttons on the base are pushed, a voice alternately says the number, the animal or the shape. The animals on the buttons are the same as the ones riding the horses. The shapes are a blue circle, a yellow square, blue star, and a red heart.
This toy is very durable. It has taken quite a bit of abuse from my two sons while playing and it still looks new!
The only problem that I have with this toy is its sensitivity to vibrations. The slightest motion will cause it to start playing. This toy would make an excellent booby trap to let you know if someone is coming in or near something. There is a solution, the on/off switch. The problem with turning it off is that my kids are always bringing it to me wanting it turned back on!
This is a great toy that can entertain a baby as well as a toddler. It teaches numbers, shapes, and animal recognition. I highly recommend the V-Tech Little Smart Light
