Who would have ever thought a musical octopus would be the best toy for preschoolers at a birthday party? We hosted Annabelle’s fifth birthday party with her preschool friends and they all had a blast playing with the Think & Learn Rocktopus™ by Fisher-Price®.
With three play modes – Math, Music, and Game – the girls were able to compose their own rhythmical patterns, add and subtract instruments, and learn the sounds of 15 musical instruments.
The Think & Learn Rocktopus™ is the perfect way for a child to explore a variety of musical styles and different musical instruments. Kids are prompted to hand the octopus a different instrument and bop them to hear it play. There were some instruments the girls have never heard of, like the congos and clarinet. The Rocktopus™ tells you facts about the instruments and allows you to play the instrument. You can also compose music with instruments! Not only did Annabelle and her friends enjoy playing new instruments, but they also enjoyed dancing to the beats.
Did you know there is a Free Rocktopus™ app? If you download the free app you can help your little one create cool music videos to go along with their compositions.
When the Rocktopus™ is in Math mode, you can play games answering questions. For example, “How many instruments are left when you take a two away?” There is also the opportunity to add instruments and then count the total number the octopus is holding. Annabelle and her preschool friends are learning addition and subtraction in school, so this toy reinforces important math skills. Another math skill challenged by the Rocktopus™ is patterns – by creating a rhythm, your child creates a pattern!
Why not buy an educational, engaging fun gift for a child you love this holiday season?!
Any toy that inspires both thinking and learning is the perfect toy for preschoolers. With the Rocktopus™ in Game mode, the kids are able to enjoy five levels of musical play. They can practice listening skills by completing actions and following prompts. If your little one is anything like mine and gets tired of being told what to do, turn the Rocktopus™ back into free play mode and let her have fun!
The Think & Learn Rocktopus™ is the perfect toy for preschoolers with the endless possibilities for play and learning time. If you want to purchase the Think & Learn Rocktopus™ for your kids, or someone you know, it is available at Walmart stores. (Don’t forget about Layaway!) Why not buy an educational, engaging fun gift for a child you love this holiday season?!
