Fisher Price Pink Piggy Bank is one of the best toys for a 6 month old
I bought my daughter Amelia, the Fisher Price pink piggy bank for Christmas! I would definately say it is one of the best toys for a 6 month old and I am not just saying that because I picked it!! It is one of these baby learning toys that encourage fine motor skills as well as teaching colors, numbers,counting and animals! When choosing what gifts and toys to buy for my little girl I like variety and this completed my shopping for a six month old baby.
In a hurry then check out the Fisher Price Pig Bank right now!
Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn Smart Stages Piggy BankThe Fisher Price piggy bank toy like the other smart stages Fisher Price toys has more than 1 learning level; this particular toy has 2 levels. Amelia is only 6 months old so I am at the first level. I am guessing she will be on this level until she is at least 1 year old! This is recommended for kids up until they are 3 years old.
Amelia loves to open and close the clear door at the side of the Fisher Price pink piggy bank, although she has not yet figured out how to put the coins in the slot. She watches me put the coins in and smiles whenever she hears the pig say the numbers. I reckon she will be at least one years old before she can put the coins in the slot. The clear door has the numbers from 1 to 10 written on it.
What is not to love with this adorable Fisher Price pink piggy bank..it looks and sound so cute!! Not forgetting the talking nose!! Press the pig’s nose to hear her talk and count!
When the child is older this Fisher Price piggy bank toy will help them learn about saving money, through the concept of putting coins into a piggy bank.
Fisher Price Piggy Bank Coins make great teethers!
The Fisher Price piggy bank coins are educational in their own right and can be bought separately from the Fisher Price Piggy Bank toy. Not only do they encourage fine motor skills they also teach colors, numbers and animals.
There are ten Fisher Price coins in total, numbered from 1-10. Each coin has a number on one side and an animal on the other. There are five different colors of coins; red, orange, blue, yellow and green. There are 10 different animals featured on the coins. When I reach the individual coins to Amelia I tell her the color, animal and number. I know she is too young to recall this information but it gets her used to different sounds, colors, animals and numbers. I guess if I wanted to take it one step further I could make the sounds each animal makes but I will leave that for now!
Of course baby has to insert these into the Fisher Price pink piggy bank but if your child is anything like Amelia they will spend more time chewing the coins and rubbing them along their gums; all part of the fun and the reason this is one of the best toys for a 6 month old! Right now we spend more time looking at the coins than putting them into the slot on the Fisher Price pink piggy bank.
Fortunately the Fisher Price laugh learn piggy bank coins are durable and can withstand chewing and being constantly dropped onto my wooden floor! I think most kids will enjoy playing with the Fisher Price coins the same way they enjoy playing with building blocks. They are small and light enough to be picked up and held for long periods of time.
Fisher Price Pig Bank is great fun for toddlers
Amelia is now 14 months and she definitely spends less time chewing the Fisher Price Pig Bank coins and more time trying to put them into the slot! At this age she still has not grasped the counting aspect but that will hopefully happen before she is 3. I will be happy to let her play with the Fisher Price laugh learn piggy bank as much as possible top her learn to count as soon as possible.
I sometimes switch to stage 2 for further learning. In this stage the toy encourages your toddler to find body parts such as nose and tail. At 20 months Amelia knows where the pigs nose and tail are! This has helped us move on to teach her other body parts.
Toys that encourage fine motor skills
The Fisher Price pink piggy bank is just one of the toys that encourage fine motor skills; fortunately there are lots more. I never just stick to one particular toy with my little girl because I like to provide variety so that she does not get too clingy with one toy. This helps her learn more and not get bored with the same toy.
