Laugh & Learn® Piggy Bank – Product Review
Classic Piggy Bank Counting Toy for Toddlers Helps Teach Kids to Count To Ten
Cha-ching! Toddlers just love this classic interactive piggy bank counting toy that will keep them engaged and entertained for hours. Drop the big colorful coins in the top, take them out through the side door. Press the cute piggy’s nose and sing along through music, silly sounds and phrases. Explore two levels of learning through staged development settings and learn to count in two languages.
Hours of engagement for babies and toddlers this classic piggy bank counting toy is by far one of the enduring favorites in our home. Used endlessly by both my children (boy and girl) and bought as a gift many times over. From the age of 10 months to 3 years they never seemed to tire of it.
A clear winner whenever I hosted play dates. Babies and toddlers love the rewarding music, silly sounds and phrases which count up to ten as the chunky colorful coins are dropped into the cute pink piggy bank, then retrieved through the side door. It quickly teaches counting numbers, and simple phrases like “open” and “close” to retrieve the coins and “touch my nose” to which fun snorting and musical responses yield squeals of delight.
Smart Stages™ Technology Provides Stepped Learning as Toy Grows with Your Child
The Smart Stages™ Piggy Bank includes Smart Stages™ technology, which is a fancy way of saying you can set the toy for two different developmental stages with appropriate songs, phrases and sounds for their comprehension level.
Level 1 – Explores first words and sounds
Level 2 – Prompts learning though questions and simple directions
Although it’s a pretty obvious setting switch on the top of the toy, so baby has no trouble switching between stages one and two weather they are ready for the multi-lingual experience or not.
My kids have dropped this sturdy toy so many times and to my surprise it has not broken. The door hinge is a solid metal rod so it’s not easily snapped, and I would have expected the plastic around the hinge to have cracked by now but it’s still in tact.
There are two versions so be aware when you buy. English/Spanish (for USA market) or English/French (for UK market). It’s just the counting numbers which are in the foreign language, not any of the other phrases or songs which are in English.
