Learning content changes as baby grows – with Smart Stages technology!
Every baby develops at their own pace, and Smart Stages technology gives you the ability to select the stage that’s best for your child! There are a variety of developmentally appropriate songs, phrases and sounds within three levels of play – just slide the switch or enter baby’s age for automatic level changes. Level 1 – Explore – 12M+: Spark curiosity with busy activations! Sit and stand to hear simple words like, “Up; down. ” Or press the buttons to hear songs and phrases like, “One, two, three, four. ” Level 2 – Encourage – 18M+: This level expands on the introduction of numbers, opposites, actions and more by encouraging baby to get involved. Flip through the book to hear prompts like, “Do you see the carrots?” Level 3 – Pretend – 24M+: Let’s play some more! Older babies can engage in imaginative play, hopping like a froggy, exploring different remote channels and playing peek-a-boo.
Develop & Grow
Songs, phrases and sounds introduce numbers, shapes, opposites, colors and more. Busy activities like turning the book pages, pressing the remote control buttons or lifting the seat cushion introduce cause and effect. Stand up and sit down to hear fun rewards - and to encourage gross motor skills and coordination.
Expand the play!
Lift the chair seat - what do you find? Talk about what you might find hiding in your own chair or couch! A cookie? Mom’s keys? Maybe a blankie? The possibilities are endless!

-- The box says there are over fifty phrases/songs/responses. This is true. In fact, my brother counted up to around 80.
-- Like most Fisher-Price stuff, the build is sturdy, yet light. It would survive a fall from a twenty story building, although any child sitting in it at the time would probably not.
-- The components in the chair automatically progress through responses as the child learns to comprehend them. In my brother's words, this was "very cool." You can also manually set the system level, choosing from three settings. Level 1 is all about the kid just exploring the chair and what it can do, Level 2 builds on what the child has learned and starts asking guided questions, and Level 3 gets a bit more abstract by encouraging games of pretend.
-- The chair is just the right height and stability for the suggested age group. My niece -- Kyrie -- isn't walking yet, but it was easy for her to sit next to and in the chair as well as play with all of the buttons and switches.
-- My brother was very excited about the chair's ability to adjust its volume. Although he liked the variety and quality of the tunes and feedback, he also saw himself getting pretty sick of it after awhile. Kryie, on the other hand, didn't seem to get too sick of it.
-- The power, volume, and setting switches were convenient enough for adults to adjust, but also inset so as to be difficult for children to change.
-- The chair automatically goes into a standby mode after a while and only turns on when it senses feedback. It's nice not to have to remember to turn it on and off.
-- There's a big gap between the base and the seat to help prevent the accidental mashing of hands.
-- The assembly was kind of a pain, even more so since the battery housing is located under the rear leg assembly, which means every time you need to change the batteries, you'll need to partially take apart two separate parts of the chair with a screwdriver. It would've been nicer to have a more accessible battery compartment.
-- Although it has a lot of tunes and feedback, more actually would've been nice (and "kinder to my sanity," says my brother). This, he admits, is a bit of a nitpick.
-- There's not much included literature to indicate how the chair works. Adults will end up having to explore the chair with the child just to figure out what it's doing.
Overall a fun and fairly inexpensive learning device with a few small, not-too-big flaws.
Well, this chair - as lame as it may appear - turned out to be a total winner! I really credit it with our son being rather strong. He was quick to pull to stand, quick to crawl, and at just over a year old walks a bit here and there too. And, what is pretty miraculous, is that he still loves this thing.
At one year old, he can now sit in it and have his feet touch the ground. But his favorite past time is standing on it, hiding stuff in it, opening and closing the "cushion."
Yes, it has phrases and talks - but I don't think that is the real allure (at least not with my son). It was something that he could play with, hold on to, slam shut... All while watching his favorite tv show.
If you have limited space, go for this. I can't recommend it enough.
Child did not grow bored with it (so far had from 4 months to 12 months).
Stays up pretty well (can tip, but takes work).
Helps kid spend energy holding, balancing, playing with lifting cushion.
Assembled by myself - and it wasn't too bad.
Not too expensive
Only one color choice.
When child is older and standing on it - can put lid down on toes, but no serious injury.
Can tip - but is hard to do so. Never had any issues of injury.
The things I like most about the chair: The design is simple, with no parts that come off and on to lose. It has different settings for different "learning levels" and activities. The phrases and/or songs change up, so that it doesn't drive you crazy with repetitive sounds. (Actually, it has over 75.) It's happy. My granddaughter enjoys having her own tot-sized chair. The feature where the chair talks when you sit on or lift the lid is cute. It has volume control (thank you Fisher-Price!) The chair goes to sleep when not in use, which saves on batteries.
Cons: These were so light to me that it didn't lose it's 5 star rating. I has no plug-in option, so changing batteries needs to happen. However, the battery area is under the chair and you need a screwdriver to change the batteries. I've noticed this on a lot of toys and wish they'd come up with another way to keep a battery compartment safe from little ones without making the change such a hassle. I also wish this had the option of an AC adapter.
