I’m not a fan of video games and computer software aimed at toddlers and preschoolers. The Baby’s Learning Laptop toy, however, is a little different. The Baby’s Learning Laptop by Vtech isn’t designed to be a video game type toy, but rather is just in a laptop-style and includes classic learning options appropriate for the development of babies and toddlers. The Baby’s Learning Laptop by Vtech is a toy that will grow with your child and can be enjoyed by a variety of ages.
The Baby’s Learning Laptop is brightly colored with the three primary colors and green. The Baby’s Learning Laptop opens and closes just like a real laptop computer. There are buttons on the keyboard area of the laptop toy and a screen or monitor. There is even a mouse located to the right of the keyboard on the Baby’s Learning Laptop toy.
Depending on what setting the Baby’s Learning Laptop by Vtech is on, your baby or toddler can learn about colors, shapes, or common objects. The lights, music, and audio on the Baby’s Learning Laptop are exciting for toddlers and infants and help to keep their attention. The keyboard buttons are large and easy to push and many toddlers love opening and closing the laptop again and again.
According to the manufacturer the Baby’s Learning Laptop is appropriate for ages 6 months to 18 months. While I do really like this developmental toy, I disagree with this age range. This is a great toy for an 18 month old and with the teaching of shapes and colors and words, the Baby’s Learning Laptop is a great entertainer for an older toddler up to at least 24 months as well. The flashing lights and fun sounds are entertaining for an infant, but the developmental aspects of the toy make it fun for an older toddler as well.
Because the Baby’s Learning Laptop is lightweight and portable it is a great car entertainer toy. Like so many toddler toys, The Baby’s Learning Laptop is noisy, but not nearly as annoying as many other similar toys on the market. There is a volume control and when the Baby’s Learning Laptop is set on the quieter setting it isn’t too loud at all.
At about $14.99 the Baby’s Learning Laptop by Vtech is also an affordable electronic toy. The two included AA batteries seem to last a while. Our son has had his Baby’s Learning Laptop toy for 3 months now, plays with it several times a week, and the first set of batteries are still working.
Overall, the Baby’s Learning Laptop by Vtech is an affordable, quality toy that might even entertain your child for a longer period of time than most toys. The Baby’s Learning Laptop toy is definitely worth checking out.
