Fisher-Price baby toys

This cute little guy chats, lights up, and loves to cuddle. Your child can press Puppy's hands, foot, heart, nose or ear to hear first words, colours, the alphabet, parts of the body and more.

Suitable from: 6 months - 2 years

Review: "Absolutely brilliant this has got to be my best buy! I got it in the Black Friday sales too at a bargain price, the saying and rhymes are short... had my little one flapping every couple of seconds for me to press again but if you hold the heart down for a second or two every nursery rhyme plays one after the other no touching needed!! Absolute godsend and the lights are bright and colourful too."

Baby always stealing your phone? Try to tempt them with their own! This one from Fisher-Price has over 20 sing-along songs and phrases as well as bright colours, music, lights and sounds to stimulate your baby’s visual and auditory development. 

Suitable from: 6 months

Review: "After receiving this my 9 month old quickly made this her favourite toy. After multiple times or stealing our phones and remote control we decided to get her her own little toy smartphone. Each button has two noises one says the biker and if you press the same key again it does something different so it doesn't sound too repetitive like other toys. It's very hard wearing as my little one likes to fling things on the floor at the minute. Would definitely recommend it to anyone's little one who keeps stealing phones and remote controls from you."

Review: "Bought this for an Easter present for my boy and Absolutely love it.... I've been having so much fun with the voice recorder, never mind my son!!! My son loves watching the colours of the lights and the dancing and I'm sure he will be dancing along with it in time to come."

Review: "This Lama by Fisher Price is a great way for our baby to develop and prepare for sitting and crawling. So far we’ve tried him on it a few times and he appears to love it. The lama is soft and snuggly, and he likes looking In the mirror at himself."

The calming music and sounds, super-soft fabric, and rhythmic breathing motion of this otter-ly cuddly pal helps soothe and comfort your baby, at home or on the go. Choose for sounds including white noise, womb, snoring or heartbeat sounds, adjust the volume, and turn on or off the soft light and breathing motion.

Review: "I got this little cute otter for my daughter for Christmas. She is 8 weeks old. It's so soothing. The music is nice and soft and just the right volume. The belly moves in and out and the belly lights up and it's not too bright, it's just enough. As soon as I put it on, within minutes my baby girl is sound asleep. It's amazing, I recommend it for every parent to get one of these."

Review: "What a lovely item! I was a bit unsure about buying it as my daughter has just turned 3 which I noticed the item was advertised for 1-3 years but her face lit up when she saw it so decided to purchase it anyway, and it’s been a very big hit! She’s played with it all day and even her older siblings have been getting involved as she’s been “cooking” food for them. Very well made and one of the best gifts I’ve bought her. Hours of fun."

Ideal for toddlers who like their cars, this ​garage includes two vehicles with built-in characters for your child to play with in the garage. Place a car on the mechanic’s platform and lift to take a look underneath and ​turn the crank to ride the elevator up and down.

Suitable from: 18 months

Review: "Delightful garage with two cars. One lift is great with a bell ringing when the lever is turned. Easy to carry by little people. It’s an improvement on the original which you couldn’t carry. Only complaint is that the green lift platform is difficult to raise. Perhaps another lever could be introduced for that so you press down and it raises up! It’s very frustrating to operate as it is."

Get your tot walking with Lil’ Snoopy. They can grasp the leash and pull him along, developing fine and gross motor skills. There are also fun rewards like sounds and ear wiggles encourage little ones to do it all over again.

Suitable from: 12 months

Review: What a lovely toy. I ordered this for a friend's one year old and she absolutely loves it. I first saw this toy when my niece received it a couple of years ago and know what a popular toy it is. It is well made and sturdy, so any time that it is dropped on the floor or kicked by accident I'm not worried that it is going to break."

Vintage Fisher-Price toys

The Fisher-Price Change-A-Record Music Box, commonly known as the Fisher-Price Record Player, is a favourite among those who played with it as a child.

Review: "Great toy. Just like the one I had when I was a kid way back in the 70s. The toy actually gave me nightmares where it came to life and started chasing me around the room. Which is probably why I remember it so well. Anyhow, it’s great, solidly made, and I bought it for my little nephew."

Originally released back in 1959, the Fisher-Price TV Radio has a wind-up knob which plays the “Farmer in the Dell” melody while whimsical scenes scroll across the window of the brightly lithographed case.

Suitable from: 18 months

Review: "I remember having these as a young kid and now cannot resist buying from this range for young children I know , such great quality and so true to the originals."

Kids will love playing shopkeeper with this seventies-style cash register which is perfect for shopping make-believe and introducing tots to numbers and currency for the first time. It’s got shop-appropriate sound effects, chunky buttons and a lever that opens the till, plus money to exchange for goods.

Suitable from: 18 months

Review: "Great product, just like my parents' one from when we were little. I got this over the cheaper one as the colour of the buttons are better in contrast for little learners than the other colours that are more similar to each other. Simple but effective this toy, the kids have hours of fun learning and make believe when they're older."
