Today I have enlisted the help of our little boy Jake for his thoughts on the Push & Play Spinning Top from Vtech.

This toy is intended from babies from 6 months, and features four different animals, an elephant, dog, frog and bear, as well as the shapes, circle, star, triangle and square, and numbers one through to four.

When you push the different animals or shapes, it introduces the animals, shapes and numbers, as well as it plays phrases, sounds and melodies, while the animals introduce themselves, their sounds and also sing, all to further encourage discovery and exploration. And of course, when you push down the plunger, the spinning top spins around to help the baby discover cause and effect.

Spin and discover animals, sounds, shapes and numbers with the Push & Play Spinning Top! The press down plunger spins the animals round and round and helps your baby discover cause and effect relationships. The four brightly coloured animals introduce themselves, their sounds, colours and sing song. When pressing the shape buttons, they light up and introduces shapes and numbers, and play fun phrases, sounds and melodies encourage discovery and exploration. 

And when pushing the shape buttons, there is also a quiz game where it asks questions such as where is the dog, and then baby can answer by pushing down the dog.

 This Push and Play Spinning Top has a massive 70+ songs, melodies, phrases and sounds, and it helps baby with:  
  • Auditory stimulation - from listening to the sing-along songs, songs and phrases
  • Sensory development - from the bright colours and flashing lights to enhance visual awareness and attract attention
  • Motor skills - from pushing the plunger to strengthen motor skills and hand-eye coordination
  • Language Development - introducing colours, shapes, numbers and animals to promote early language skills
Our little boy in particular is enjoying playing with this spinning top, and it seems that every time he pushes something we still hear new sounds, songs and phases, simply because of the huge variety it holds, so this really does give hours and hours of fun and learning. But that said, our 3 year old is also having heaps of fun playing with the Spinning Top and showing little brother how it all works!
It is colourful and fun to look at, and it is in a sturdy quality design so it doesn't break from so a drop to the floor, which inevitably does happen when you've got toddlers in the house. I also like that it has an on-off button, and two volume levels, so it is not too loud, unlike other toys.
