Zoe is constantly after the remote controll to our television. I decided to find her a toy that would be similar to the remote controll and yet be safe for her to play with. She is approaching 7 months already so the toys for her age span is plentifull. I went to Wal*Mart to see what I could find, if anything like a remote. Well, I found the perfect thing for her. It is a toy microphone. Ok, not a tv remote but hear me out. It is slender and covered with buttons. Zoe loves music and this thing is constantly going. You press the large center button and it lights up and asks the baby to sing with her then it continues to sing popular nursery tunes. The side buttons make animal noises, and when the doggie gets pressed it will bark press it again for applause. She really gets a kick out of it when she makes a noise with it up at her mouth it echos like a real microphone. There is a switch where it will play her songs, invite her to sing, or simply turn it off. Also there is a mobile ring around the top with a different animal at every turn. When the arrow is over a certain animal it will imitate the sound that the animal would make. The microphone is for ages 3 months + and takes 3 AAA batteries which are included with purchase.
