Fisher-Price HFT76 Interactive Baby and Toddler Learning Toy, Multicolor
About this deal
Turn the toy to Level 1 and Bouncin’ Beats will announce “Level 1, let’s have some fun!” This level is called “Explore” and is designed for babies ages 9 months and up. It introduces colors, numbers, and letters without giving too much information or direction. A push of the Music button will often make Bouncin’ Beats encourage kids to dance along, and then it’ll play some music, sometimes without lyrics. When babies push the Learning button, Bouncin’ Beats may them it has two colorful ears, or simply sing the first three letters of the alphabet. Fisher-Price, a subsidiary of Mattel, has developed all sorts of toys for babies and toddlers. DJ Bouncin’ Beats is one of the more interactive options for kids ages 9-36 months — it bounces, sings, and remixes kids’voices into its songs. The “Pretend” stage is level 3, and switching to this level will have Bouncin’ Beats excitedly declaring “Let’s pretend, yippee!” Designed for kids ages 18 months and up, this stage adds more interactivity to the songs. The Music button will give songs with instructions such as “bounce like a bunny” and “now slow like a turtle.” There’s also a freeze dance game at level 3, which asks kids to stop dancing when the music stops. The Learning button also adds some instructions, such as asking kids to do two big jumps “like a kangaroo” while DJ Bouncin’ Beats counts them.

There are three main buttons on top of DJ Bouncin’ Beats’ head. The rightmost button with musical notes is the Music button, and pressing it will get DJ Bouncin’ Beats singing and playing music. The middle button is the Learning button and when kids press it, the toy will say shorter phrases that will familiarize a little one with early learning concepts like letters and numbers. The last button activates the toy’s microphone, and kids can say something once they’ve pressed it and DJ Bouncin’ Beats will record it and mix it into a song.
Kids can record any sound or phrase three seconds or shorter with DJ Bouncin’ Beats’ recording feature. The toy will take that phrase, distort it just a bit, and incorporate it into some music. Kids will also occasionally hear the phrase remixed again when they press the Music button! However, the toy only stores and uses the last phrase it recorded, so there won’t be a full baby mixtape by the end of the play session. The batteries are included in this toy, so babies can get straight to bouncing. The first time it’s turned on, the toy’s face lights up and it declares in a high voice “DJ Bouncin’ Beats in the house!” The toy is built on a motorized spring base, so any time little ones push a button, DJ Bouncin’ Beats will excitedly jump up and down while playing music, counting, or saying the ABCs. (For this reason, it’s best to play with DJ Bouncin’ Beats on the floor only, not on a table where it may bounce off.) The toy has a cute face that lights up with different colors and a spring mechanism that makes it jump. | Source: Mattel Large multi-coloured LED face and fun head and body bobbing action; watch him bounce to the beat. He also has soft, squishy ears.

The Smart Stages are also a cool feature since it means the toy can grow along with kids. And it’s definitely making a real effort toward being educational. Essentially every button press has DJ Bouncin’ Beats mentioning either the alphabet, colors, or numbers.
