It’s so true what they say about second children. They don’t get as much attention as the first one…for obvious reasons. I hate to say it, but it’s happened in our home with my little boy. He’s barely gotten any new clothes because I’ve used a lot hand-me-downs. In terms of toys, besides the handful of cars and trucks he’s received as gifts, he’s inherited all of his sister’s baby toys.
So when Fisher Price came asking if we were interested in doing a review of their Laugh and Learn “Learning Kitchen” I gladly accepted for three reasons. First, I’m a loyal Fisher Price customer. My sister gave my daughter, Vanessa, a Laugh and Learn “Learning Home” three years ago when she turned one, and she is still playing with it (and so is her little brother, of course)! I honestly love their products not only now that I’m a mom, but when I was a child back in Peru, too. I have many a great memory of playing with my Fisher Price house and airplane back when the little dolls were like cylinders without arms. ¿Se acuerdan?
Second, I’m absolutely thrilled that more and more Fisher Price is incorporating Spanish into their toys. The Learning Kitchen is no exception. It has a Spanish mode and children get the same key words they hear in English in Spanish. It even has a song in Spanish! Funny thing is that the recommended ages are from 6 months to 36 months and, as soon as we opened it, my 4-year-old couldn’t hide her excitement—especially when she heard it spoke Spanish. “Español!” she belted out immediately. I truly think that hearing these type of toys “speak” Spanish does a lot to validate the language in the eyes of our children. Not to mention that it’s a great way to introduce simple vocabulary to those children just getting their initial exposure to Spanish.
Finally, I accepted because I thought it’d be nice for my little boy, Santiago, to have a toy all of his own. So, thanks Fisher Price!
