#Giveaway: Fisher-Price Smart Stage Toy #HolidayGiftGuide2014



There’s good news for parents and children alike! Fisher-Price, Inc., the world’s largest infant and preschool toy manufacturer and a subsidiary of Mattel, Inc., is releasing its newest, most innovative toy collection ever! Introducing Laugh & Learn® Smart Stages™, a revolutionary learning technology that grows with your child for up to three years. The toys’ age appropriate content is user-controlled and can be adjusted to match your child’s development.  

Laugh & Learn Smart Stages incorporates three levels of programmable learning, offering babies the chance to grow and discover the world at their own pace. Created in consultation with early childhood learning experts, the toys reflect the philosophy that babies learn best by experiencing the world around them.

“Our Laugh & Learn Smart Stages line was inspired by many years of observing families with infants at home, where we saw babies’ natural curiosity for everyday objects, like phones, light switches and pots and pans,” says Dr. Deb Weber, senior manager of child research, Fisher-Price. “We also found that babies’ play patterns are made-up of contextual and digital learning, and that parents are looking for learning content to help their child grow and develop. This research and insight was our starting point for developing our unique Smart Stages technology.”

The new toy line includes seven products, including the Smart Stages Chair; Puppy’s Smart Stages Home; Puppy’s Smart Stages Train; Smart Stages Crawl Around Car; Smart Stages Laptop; Smart Stages Vacuum; and Smart Stages Mower – all designed to encourage experiential learning through active play.

Three-in-One: Smart Stages of Learning

Smart Stages technology features developmental play for little ones starting at six months, progressing all the way up to 36 months. Each toy is effectively three-toys-in-one.

“Babies go through three stages of learning in their early development phase – explore encourage, pretend,” says Dr. Weber. “These levels are reflected in Laugh & Learn Smart Stages – from Level One, where babies are exploring first words and sounds that spark their curiosity; to Level Two, where babies are encouraged and promoted through questions and simple direction; and Level Three, where babies are fully immersed in imaginative fun and early role-play.”

Introducing the Laugh & Learn Smart Stages Toys

The Laugh & Learn Smart Stages toy line was launched in Toronto on October 8 at an event featuring Canadian comedian, Gerry Dee, and Dr. Deb Weber.

Gerry Dee says, ““As a parent and former teacher, I truly believe in the importance of learning through play and I’m excited to introduce the new Smart Stages line by Fisher-Price. These toys are engaging, challenging and fun, and they interact with kids in a unique and dynamic way when they are at that critical development age.”

About Fisher-Price
Fisher-Price, Inc., a subsidiary of Mattel, Inc. (NASDAQ: MAT) located in East Aurora, N.Y., is the leading brand of infant and preschool toys in the world. The company's legacy of high quality toys has enhanced early childhood development for more than 82 years. Some of the Company's best-known "classic" brands include Little People®, Power Wheels® and Imaginext®.

The Company's website, www.fisher-price.ca, as well as its Facebook page, www.facebook.com/fisherprice provide valuable information and resources to parents and grandparents around the world.

When I was a child, I had a lot of Fisher-Price toys. Hard to believe almost 40 years later some of those toys are still around, just improved. For instance, the vacuum. My Fisher-Price vacuum back in the day had things in it that popped in this dome thing, as you walked across the carpet. Now the vacuum of today lights up and interacts with the baby a little more realistically. Instead of being a toy for amusement, they have turned it into a toy that amuses and teaches!

Speaking of which, Fisher-Price has generously provided one of these great toys for one lucky reader. 
The Smart Stages mower. Valued at $29.99 and perfect for little ones aged 12-26 months.
