Frustrating for determined little one,

This review is from: Fisher-Price Laugh and Learn My Pretty Learning Purse (Toy)
I bought this as birthday present for my 1yr old. I figured my other 2 girls have purses, the little one needs her own too. This is soo cute. The phone is a rattle, the keys are just chunky, and the credit card , well...a credit card. None of which she couldn't care less about. Having older siblings though we have a lot of interesting toys that function and make sounds. She loves the bracelet and mirror though. She is proud of herself putting the purse on her arm and of course likes to push the button to make it play music. The major downfall though - I have a very determined little girl and she gets so frustrated because the opening doesn't really let her do much. She can get things in sometimes. If she's pulling something out, her hand gets stuck because the opening is only about 2", if that. She is usually screaming within 5 minutes of playing with it and then I have to take it away which upsets her even more because she's not easily distracted by another toy. Like I said, she's determined. Not sure what the designers of this one were thinking making the opening as small as they did - another 1" would make a world of difference. I usually love the laugh and learn toys so I didn't even check reviews before buying this one. I wish I would have, probably wouldn't have bought it. I'm giving it 3 stars because I realize the phone, keys and credit card would interest a 12mo that isn't surrounded by all the toys made for older kids.
