To celebrate their 90th birthday, Fisher-Price have launched their own virtual toy museum, accessible on Instagram! A fantastic way to utilise social media and appeal to a younger audience, the museum takes visitors on a journey through 90 years of toy innovation. The museum tour begins in the 1930’s and ends in the 2010’s, so we are able to see the evolution of one of the most loved and revered brands in the nursery industry over the decades. Each toy is lovingly presented with a themed background that really brings the fun to life.
Some of the toys featured in the museum include the original Fisher-Price Chatter Telephone and Rock-a-Stack, first released in the 1960’s. We stock their updated versions, which are still family favourites years later. Although it features a more modern design, the Fisher-Price Chatter Telephone still provides hours of fun! It features an adorable face, spinning dial, ringing-phone sounds and eyes that move up and down as baby pulls it along. The toy encourages early role play – and baby can pick up lots of great developmental benefits, too. The dial introduces baby to numbers and counting from 1-9 and helps exercise fine motor skills – making it a brilliant addition to any toy box.
The Fisher-Price Rock-a-Stack has grown in size and in fun! At over 14 inches tall, the Fisher-Price Giant Rock-a-Stack takes classic stacking play to new heights. Kids can grasp and shake the six extra-large, colourful rings. The toy features a wibbly-wobbly base to make stacking even more fun. The littlest ring also has swirling beads inside for kids to shake and explore! A smaller version of the Rock-a-Stack is available in the Fisher-Price Eco Friendly Gift Set, which also comes with Baby’s First Blocks for even more fun.
Fisher-Price is one of the leading toy and nursery brands, with huge success worldwide for nearly 100 years!
