And now for a fun item that your baby will delight in,
and you can smile about, as it is perfectly suited to their developmental needs!
Hippo has lots of fun surprises for your child to discover and enjoy!
2 musical play modes offers lots of fun and surprises:
- Piano mode features 3 magical keys that light up and play piano sounds only (without any balls popping)
- Popping ball mode plays music as well as features balls that pop out from the hippo's mouth as it randomly opens and closes
Babies will have a blast as they drop one of three colorful balls through the opening on top, watching it pop out of the hippo’s mouth which will open and close at random. Three musical key notes magically light up, also engaging the baby!
As you can see Hippo-Poppin' Piano Pal is VERY bright and attractive to your baby! It allows them to perform an action intentionally, to get similar results, due to having seen the results from an accidental reaction (putting ball in and music plays). It allows for them to learn cause and effect in essence. Plus you might actually note a preference towards the right or left hand dominance, when they keep putting the balls in the Hippo!
Hippo-Poppin' Piano Pal requires 3 AA batteries, which are not included. My only wish is that he came with more than the 2 balls, as Miss Grace has a similar train type toy and the SUPER light weight balls got lost VERY easily and we ended up with only 1 left. So make sure they end up back in Hippo at the end of play time!
