My darling JJ loves to dance. He loves to run, jump, play football - anything active is his thing. A few weeks ago we were sent the Fisher-Price Bright Beats Learnin’ Lights Dance Mat to review and it has been such a hit!
The interactive Fisher-Price Bright Beats Learnin' Dance Mat is £39.99 from Smyths Toys. It allows little ones to move, groove and learn and features innovative motion sensors. As children move around the mat they’re rewarded with colourful lights, fun sounds, music and phrases. The learning content grows with your child and teaches ABCs, numbers, colours, shapes and dance moves to help get gross motor skills rolling.
The dance mat has four different sections. The blue section teaches letters, the red section teaches numbers, the yellow section teaches shapes and the green section is all about dance. The dance mat is suitable for babies and toddlers aged 9 months and upwards. From a young age they can have fun with the Move & Play mode, pressing the light-up buttons and interacting with BeatBo who can be spun around. Then, in Dance & Play mode, they are encouraged to dance and move around the mat. The motion sensors detect when JJ has moved into the right section and rewards him with songs, lights and phrases!
The dance mat is quite a small size, but not too small. It's ideal for a baby to sit on and for older babies and toddlers they can dance on and off the mat. At times I feel like our house is overrun with toys, but one of the great things about this is that it can be folded up neatly, so once JJ is all danced out it can stored without taking up too much room at all!
