Debbie reviews the My Pretty Learning Purse
The Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn My Pretty Learning Purse, priced around £17, teaches your baby about numbers, colours, size, opposites and greetings. Each time you open the handle or pull the zip it plays songs, sounds and phrases.
Jessie started smiling the minute she saw the My Pretty Learning Purse with its bright happy face. The tunes and sounds that play when you open the purse or press the heart button engage her attention too. It is great to be able to adjust the setting so that the music and sounds vary.
The tunes and purse help to teach the alphabet, colours and shapes. Inside the purse there are all of the most important items a girl might need; phone, keys, bangle, mirror and a credit card! Jessie is always after my mobile phone and so the phone with its picture and rattle were an instant hit.
My Pretty Learning Purse is a fun product to help support imaginary play and I look forward to watching Jessie's skills develop in this way. At the moment she is enjoying banging each item, but I'm sure that as she grows older her purse will come along on our shopping trips.
Emily reviews the My Pretty Learning Purse
The Laugh & Learn My Pretty Learning Purse, £16.99, has a friendly animated face to encourage smiling and role-play fun. We recruited Emily and her three-month-old triplets Emelia, Felicity & Charlotte, to test it. This is what she thought:
The My pretty learning purse is a lovely girlie toy… just what every little girl should have to hold her phone, keys, bangle and mirror and saves her from emptying mummies!
The toy came well packaged but the purse was just tied in, so no scissors/ pliers were required to remove it from the box which is a big plus to begin with. AND it came with batteries.
The purse plays songs and has a selection of different modes- colours, ABC etc. - as it is opened and the button is pushed which gives lots of variety and keeps little ones attention. Also the girls had great fun emptying the contents out and exploring them (with hands and mouth)!
It is fascinating to see how the girls are progressing. The purse helps their co-ordination placing items into the bag, interaction with the toys and having lots of bits, it also encourages interaction between them.
The purse is a fab toy and contains all the things babies love. I feel it will grow with them.
