Playtime With BeatBo ♥

Just before Christmas our boys were sent a toy which they have really enjoyed playing with together, and I have to admit, I quite enjoy pressing the buttons on this one too to listen to it's little, catchy songs, this toy is BeatBo by Fisher-Price.

BeatBo is suitable from babies 6 months plus to 3 years, so it's been perfect for my two boys. I like to think that BeatBo is based on a robot (I like robots!), as he moved rather mechanically when his buttons are pressed and he has a light up 'disco' like tummy, which brings Beau great joy, he loves the lights.

This toy has honestly kept both of our boys so entertained. I think it's the three different modes of play - which are available through three different buttons - that appeal to both of their ages. BeatBo dances, moves and sings little songs - which are rather funky! He also sings learning tunes such as the alphabet and a song about the colours of the rainbow. He also has a button, which when pressed, will record what you say and then BeatBo will sing it back - I love using this mode myself!

BeatBo has over 40 tunes and phrases, so it's not a toy that will grate on parents or that the kids will bore of easily - I actually love some of the tunes it plays as they really have a dance vibe to them.

BeatBo evokes joy in our house and although Beau is a little bit too young to move a lot to the songs, he does enjoy pressing the three buttons and looking at the lights on BeatBo's tummy. Tyler loves listening the the 'ABC' song and seeing BeatBo dance along to it. When they're older I can see them both playing along to the 'Freeze' song - a song which stops at stages throughout, kind of like musical statues.

This really is a great toy and as a parent I really do love when my boys play with it. It's light enough to move from room to room and as you can see from the pictures in this post, the boys have lots of fun playing with BeatBo all around the house - even in my bed! Tyler brings all the cuddly toys to Beau and then they have a little 'party' with BeatBo - it's the sweetest thing.

BeatBo is €34.99 and is available from all good toy stores and online.

*We were sent BeatBo to try out with our boys, however, as always, all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.
