So I scored this on Amazon's black friday lightening deals. I didn't know it was for ages 2 and up, my daughter is getting ready to turn 1. So, when I opened the box and saw that, I was momentarily concerned. However, she LOVED it. EVERYTHING is touchable on this. The numbers, the food, the animals, the smoke stack (is a chord plus the root an octive up, 1 note per 2 "discs"). There are several modes. "Meet the animals," a music mode, a game playing mode (does thing such as "Find the red pinwheel" and then you push it and it praises you for finding the right item), learning modes, etc. I worried initially that she didn't quite have the coordination to select just 1 thing..and she doesn't. But it's forgiving, and with so much of the screen interactive it will continue to make noise and entertain her. It will be FANTASTIC over the next year for both giving her an educational toy, and giving us a fun way to learn numbers, colors, animals, etc. I can't praise this toy enough! If you're looking for it to fully entertain your child so they can be independent with it I would definitely stick with age 2 and up. However, it certainly makes for an effective 1st birthday gift if you're looking for something fun and interactive that your kid will enjoy because it makes noise, and you can use as a teaching tool!
