What if there was a way a toy could keep up with your child? With learning content that could adapt and grow as your baby grows?
Say hello to Smart Stages™ technology from Fisher-Price.
New learning technology for the stages babies grow through.
Available now on select Laugh & Learn toys.
By around six months, babies love to do the same thing, over and over (and over!) again.
Smart Stages Level 1 inspires curiosity as they start to explore, with early learning concepts, fun phrases, playful songs, and lots of baby-appropriate activities.
Encourage: Starting to talk. LOVES to imitate. Follows directions—as long as they’re simple and there’s encouragement. Smart Stages Level 2 asks basic questions and offers simple directions to engage and encourage your one-year-old with rewards (Great job!).
Pretend: Your 18-month-old is probably starting to use her imagination and enjoying pretend play, wanting to be just like mom or dad. Smart Stages Level 3 inspires imaginative fun with songs, sounds and phrases for creative, open-ended play.
Watch your child play and interact with the toy, noticing how they respond. You’ll know your child has learned a concept when they can not only show you something on the toy, but also in the world around them. For example, when he can show you things that are yellow (the banana’s yellow, the flower is yellow), he’s learned that color. Or maybe she likes to sing along to a song about counting with you … and even starts to count while walking up stairs, or numbers each blueberry when eating a snack.
