The delightful Learn & Groove Musical Table offers 15 different activities and more than 40 melodies/ songs, making it a great present for little ones aged six months+.
Lots of things to open and close; spin and slide; push and pull are accompanied by flashing lights and educational sounds (including letters, colours, numbers 1 to 10 and opposites) in English or French. On ‘flipping’ the page to music mode, the sounds change to an array of nursery rhymes, dance tunes and real instrument sounds.
Learning about Instruments
Different instruments are played by using buttons in varying ways. The slider, for example, can be pushed to either play a blues riff or a cheerful song about counting. On pressing the piano keys, baby hears a choice of contemporary tunes or a colour song, while the banjo wheel will play up to 14 classical tunes.
Featuring neutral colours, the table is supplied complete with a set of either green or blue legs to attach when baby gets a little taller and/ or starts standing up. Reaching, pulling and grabbing is made easier by contoured grips, safely aiding baby in learning the necessary motor skills to stand.
Measuring approximately 23 in x 5.5 in x 15.5 in, the LeapFrog Learn and Groove Musical Table comes complete with instructions and a guide for parents. It is available from Smyths Toys, Boots and Mothercare; Toys’r’Us and the LeapFrog Store at prices ranging from £24.99 to £34.99 (so shopping around is highly recommended).
A great Choice
The LeapFrog Learn & Groove Musical Table is definitely a great choice. Doing exactly what it says on the box, it will keep baby entertained for hours on end. The required batteries (3 x AA) are unfortunately not provided, so make sure to get some to avoid disappointment.
