Have a blast with the Spinning Lights Learning Hippo by VTech. This vocabulary builder uses moving lights with six fun activities to encourage language development as well as introduce numbers by making a connection between what they see and what they hear. Your child can spin the lights around the alphabet circle by pulling the bird on the toy hippo's back to learn about letters, phonics, objects, animals and more. They can also move the lights around one at a time by moving the tail up or down. Move the hippo's mouth and he will ask questions to help reinforce learning. Press the ABC button and your preschooler will learn their ABCs as they sing and watch the lights move along to the Alphabet Song. Press the 123 button to see the lights come on to introduce numbers. In music mode, they can move the rolling ball in the center of the musical hippo to add fun sound effects to 26 cheerful melodies. Take a spin with this learning hippo for tons of fun! Requires 2 AA batteries (batteries included for demo purposes only; new batteries recommended for regular use). Intended for ages 18 months to 4 years.
