The Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn Smart Bounce & Spin Pony is one of those cool looking interactive and educational games for keeping your little toddlers amused and learning through play.
So what is it?
The Smart Bounce & Spin Pony is a molded plastic pony that sits on a wide sturdy plastic base.
Basically, it encourages physical movement in your child and interacts with the television.
It is more than a rocking horse.
Get your little toddler to hop onto this interactive pony and whilst it encourages physical movement it also interacts with the television at the same time.
It will need assembly when you buy this.
How Does the Spin Pony Work?
By plugging in the receiver into your television, VCR or DVD player’s audio/vido input jacks, you’ll see the game introductory screen appearing on the TV.
Because this is WIRELESS technology, the pony’s motions will control the video games – perfect for a toddler who is just starting to learn about cause and effect.
Whilst your child is playing and bouncing and spinning as he/she rides the pony, this interacts with the learning games that your child chooses to play.
The use of wireless technology is smart because it makes this very convenient to use and avoids nasty accidents where your child might trip over the trailing wires and cords.
Does it Need To Be Connected to the TV?
No. If you don’t connect this to the TV, then your toddler can play on the pony which by itself will make sound effects and play songs.
Adult supervision is required for this toy in case your toddler falls off.
What Sort of Games Does This Educational Toy Provide?
The educational games here feature simple and colorful animation. Your child will bound on the pony and this causes the animated features to react.
