This review is from: Fisher-Price Laugh and Learn Apptivity Monkey (Toy)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
My daughter just turned one and has been enjoying her Fisher Price Laugh and Learn Puppy since Christmastime. She also enjoys commandeering my iPhone, so the Apptivity Monkey seemed like a great way to combine her love of Laugh and Learn the Puppy and modern electronics while protecting said electronics from little hands and the precocious little kid attached to them. And the Apptivity Monkey is a great toy!

This toy can be played with, with your iDevice popped inside (you have a choice of putting it in so your kid can hit the home button, or flip it upside down in the iChamber to keep their little pokey fingers off it), or by itself, in case you don't have a spare iPhone or iPod to plug into ol' Laugh and Learn Monkey. Also, the free app can be used independent of this toy, which is great if you need to entertain your child, have your iDevice in-hand, but left Laugh and Learn at home. The thing is, even after reading the directions and cranking up the volume on my iPod Touch, I'm still not bright enough to make it loud enough to be heard. When your device is paired up with the Monkey, your device is what controls the volume of the whole works. On its own, the Monkey's volume is about on par with Laugh and Learn Puppy's. So with that being said, my daughter prefers to play with the Laugh and Learn Monkey without the shiny iPod inside, because she likes to be able to hear the sounds it makes. As for those sounds, there's the standard Laugh and Learn fare, jazzed up with monkey sounds, and there are also a few different songs and themes on this that aren't on Laugh and Learn Puppy.

The Laugh and Learn Apptivity Monkey entertains my one-year-old and makes her happy, so despite not being able to figure out how to make the Monkey louder than a whisper when my all-the-way-volumed-up iPod Touch is installed, I still think this is a really great toy for the little person, big curiosity phase of life!
