Fisher-Price Musical Pop-Up Eggs (Review)

The Fisher-Price Musical Pop-Up Eggs is a toy specifically designed to help babies / toddlers develop fine motor skills while entertaining them with sound effects and lights.

Taking center stage are three signature style characters — a chick, turtle and toucan which¬†pop up from individual eggs accompanied by three different activation switches.

The three switches each have their own unique way of activation. The chick requires a push (press down) to pop up while the turtle and toucan require a slide (up or down) and twist (left or right). Each time a baby successfully pops up a character, he or she is also rewarded with lights and sounds (catchy tunes). There is also a switch that can be used to turn off the lights and sound effects.

The toy itself has a multi-colored exterior that babies will find attractive and is powered by 3 AA batteries. It is built to be quite sturdy and can take a lot of abuse although I am a bit disappointed that the characters are not completely hidden in their eggs (they are half-exposed actually).

Having the characters half-exposed simply ruins the element of surprise. It would have been great if Fisher-Price designed them to be completely hidden in their eggs but I guess at some point during the design process they realized that having the characters completely hidden means a product would stretch more vertically resulting in a bigger, more expensive and potentially more fragile design.

The "eggs" do not fully depress and enclose the characters.

Whatever the reason is, the Fisher-Price Musical Pop-Up Eggs is still a neat toy for children ages 6 months to 3 years. My son has been playing with it since he was barely 12 months old and still finds it entertaining a year later.
