This table is a lot like the LeapFrog "learn and groove" table, the major differences being that this table features food instead of musical instruments and is smaller in size.

The table is very easily assembled coming in 5 parts(4 legs 1 table) the legs simply click into place and you're ready to go, you dont have to use the legs if your child isnt the the right stage of developement.

Suitable from 6months of age its a great toy for little ones who are just learning to stand, theyre eager to see all the colours, the dancing lights and interact with all the toys which encourages them to pull themselves up and strengthens their legs.

The toy has 3 settings, chosen by simply sliding the switch to the chosen style, you can choose abc, 123 or off.

The table top features a selection of different foods

1-A bowl of alphabet soup-Stir the soup to sing the alphabet.
The bowl turns, starting off a song or music. This is a very
clever little dish its made from 2 sheets of clear plastic and
between the plastic is a liquid and some letters, as the dish is
turned the letters bob around in the liquid, it looks like real
soup from the outside but theres no risk of spills or mess.
2-Pizza- teaches shapes & colors- press one of the 3 shaped
buttons to be told its colour or shape, the will also play a single
note which varies depending on the shape you press.
3- fruits- teach colors & textures- slide the blueberries, press the
banana or turn the apple for a tune or description ie "red
apple" or "soft banana"
4- Sippy cup- magically empties & fills to teach opposites &
manners. you push it down once and the cup is nearly empty,
push it down again and the cup is nearly full.
5-Cookies- Press down to trigger songs inc- the mexican hat
dance (my daughters favourite) or a song counting to ten. the
chocolate chips are actually different coloured balls which
spin within the cookie
6-Spoon- comes away from the table to allow your child to "eat
and stir the soup"
7- Table cloth corner- flip over to reveal a small compartment of
peas, they giggle and make other noises

There are 15 different songs, including "the Alphabet Song" "Someone's in the Kitchen with Dinah" "Teddy Bear Picnic" & "Pease Porridge Hot" as well as 25+ different silly sounds including crunching and slurping.

The abc and 123 features promote early academics, understanding of letters, counting, colors, shapes, textures, opposites, first words, foods & manners, they also encourage problem-solving skills as your baby learns how to activate music & sounds in multiple ways.the repitition of simple words encourages speech developement. The table provides an opportunity for baby to be like the grown ups, encouraging imaginative play.

It is a very durable toy and like the "learn and groove" has stood up to the mountain climbing attempts of my 2 years old, it has also helped my baby girl to learn how to stand, she nows stands confidently holding the edge and dancing to the music.

It requires 3aa batteries that dont come with it, the compartment is easy to reach under the main table. The packaging is brightly coloured as all kids toys are but is easy to remove, in fact it has a front flap which you can open to test the toy before you buy it. it retails at £19.99 and is available from toys r us, woolworths, argos and many online stores including amazon.

I highly recommend this table, it has more activities than the "learn and groove" nicer, more varied songs and is smaller(which is important when considering how it will fit in your home) my kids love it and im sure it will interest them for a long time, even if it's just when my little girl is old enough to play teddy bears picnic.
