Fantastic Toys From Fisher-Price
We all know the name Fisher-Price—it’s been a trusted name in toys for infants and children for as long as we can all remember. In fact, Fisher-Price is one of the top 10 most recognized brands in the world! That’s not surprising considering the company goes way back to 1930, when it was first founded in New York, USA, by Herman Fisher, Irving Pirce, Price’s wife Margaret Evans Price, and Helen Schelle. From the very start their fundamental toy-making principles have centred on intrinsic play value, ingenuity, strong construction, and good value for money.
Early toys were made of steel and pondersosa pine wood, but in the 1950s the use of plastic meant longer-lasting toys with brighter colours. In 1993, Fisher-Price became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Mattel, squarely focussed on infant and pre-school products. And since the 1930s, Fisher-Price has created approximately 5,000 different toys!
Well, we can’t stock them al, but you’ll finding a fantastic array of toys by Fisher-Price at the Toys Paradise warehouse. In fact, a quick search brings up almost 90 results! There isn’t room to talk about them all here today, but let’s have a quick look at some of the popular Fisher-Price toy lines that your baby or toddler are sure to love.
The Brilliant Basics toys are wonderful playtime friends for babies and toddlers. Make bathtime funtime with Stay N Play Bath Friends, a suction cup bath bar with 4 fun water activities with a wonderful aquatic look. There’s a starfish with a spinning water wheel, a whale with multiple water flow actions, a ‘fill and pour’ lobster and a water cup disguised as a sea shell. The suction bar attaches to the side of the bathtub and all pieces attach easily and securely to the suction bar.
When baby’s all clean, the Musical Pop-Up Bus is ready to keep them occupied before bedtime! The wheels go ’round and ’round, and with baby’s help, three friendly passengers pop up and down! Music and fun sounds play when baby turns or presses the knobs. The puppy turns so he can drive as baby pushes the bus along. Time to head to school—singing all the way!
When baby is a bit older, they’ll love their Walker-to-Wagon, and the best thing is, it changes as they grow! This grow-with-me walker is perfect for helping early walkers build confidence—then it easily converts to a pull-along wagon once your toddler is ready to take off! All along the way, there are loads of fun activities built right in, including big spinning beads and a clicking dial, a roller ball to spin and jingle ball to bat, and colourful pages with friendly characters to flip. Baby can sort three colourful shapes and drop them through the lift-up door. The sturdy handle has a textured grip for pushing or pulling, and lots of room for favourite toys inside!
Babies love colourful, moving, musical toys, and the Go Baby Go! range are just the thing to stimulate those little brains. The 1-2-3 Crawl-Along Snail wobbles, wiggles, smiles and giggles—this cheerful friend is fun in so many ways! For tummy time, baby will enjoy looking in the mirror, listening to music and sounds. For sit-up play, there’s a back and forth rocking motion. And when baby’s ready to crawl, the snail will lead the way, wobbling along with lively music and dancing lights!
The Bop & Rock Musical Lion keeps a wild beat, encouraging baby to bop the balls and pound them through the holes for rewarding lights, sounds, roll-out action, and plenty of lively fun! It’s a great way to encourage eye-hand coordination and other physical skills as baby learns to sit, balance, grasp and tap. The Shake & Rattle Monkey Ball is all about fun—from his easy grasp ears to his soft, silly feet. In between is a smiling face, soft fabric surface, and a ball that bounces and rattles inside. It’s big but lightweight, so baby can sit, shake and explore, toss it around, or roll it along, crawling after it!
