Fisher-Price’s newest toy being released on the market is called the Think & Learn Rocktopus. If you have children ages 3-6, and you’re looking for a STEM toy, then the Rocktopus might just be a suitable one for your little ones. Continue reading below to learn what I already know about the Think & Learn Rocktopus …
What is the Think & Learn Roctopus?
The Think 7 Learn Roctopus will teach your child about music. It spread 15 different instruments across a total of five genres. While learning about music (something that will really catch the little ones attention), the child will also be learning about patterns, numbers, and math skills.
Long story short, this STEM toy teaches the basics of math using music.
Who is this Toy Best for?
This toy, as I previously said, has been developed from children as young as 3 and as old as 6. If you were to purchase this toy for your 3-year-old, this means that he/she could use it for 3 years before they outgrow it, which is great because with most toys, the child will outgrow it within a year. I would say that this is for every child within that age range, because what child doesn’t like to learn when there’s music involved? I had a chance to preview it at an event I went to and it actually made me wish it had come out when my children were that young because I know they would have enjoyed something like that.
Is it Fun?
For a child, yes, I believe this would be a fun toy. Kids may sit there for hours on end while they try to make their own music. The music is made by putting tiny pods on their arms.
The Fisher-Price Roctopus is set to be released this fall (2018) and will start out at a price of $59.99, which is decent when it comes to a high-quality STEM toy by Fisher Price. If you’re not familiar with the Thing & Learn series by Fisher Price, they’re not bad at all – they are comprised of a turtle, a caterpillar (Code-a-Pillar), and a smart cycle.
If you have children that are in the right age limit for the Rocktopus, this yes, I would recommend this. I have heard some parents ask if 3 years old is too young to start learning math, but honestly, it is always a good idea to get them started at a young age. You see, children’s brains are like sponges, they soak up knowledge better than us adults. This would be a great starter toy, no doubt about that one.
