The Fisher Price Sparkling Symphony has five colorful animals, a light show, and several classical music songs that children can listen to and add harmony to. Batteries are included.
Once the toy is turned on, children can take the animals off of the stand and play with them. Each animal has a different shaped base that they fit on to, so kids have to match each animal to their stand. Once the toy is turned on, it will start playing music, and then once the child puts the animal back in its correct place, harmony will be added to the music, so by matching the animals, they are making their own music.
The Sparkling Symphony from Fisher Price plays music and lets children add their own harmony to songs by putting the small plastic animals in the corresponding colored stand. The toy has five small plastic animals that come in bright colors including red, green, blue, yellow, and purple. There is also a light show that children can watch. It has a volume dial, which users have said is helpful in making sure that the volume is not super loud, but it can be just loud enough for the child to hear. Reviewers also mentioned that it was a good educational toy for teaching younger children colors and animals. There is an elephant, dragon, bear, lion, and giraffe and a variety of colors. The toy plays several songs, so the same one is not playing all of the time. The toy comes with batteries, and users said that they have lasted for years.
Fisher Price recommends this toy for children ages six months and up, but several users said that kids don’t really get what the point of the toy is and don’t start using it until about age eighteen months. Also, the five animals are made out of plastic, but some reviewers were disappointed that they were made of a very hard plastic because it made it harder for babies to chew on them while teething.
- If the animals get sticky or dirty, they can be rinsed off in the sink or wiped down with a damp cloth
- The animals all sit on the toy and can be kept there when the toy is not being used
