Huge Hit, November 10, 2011
Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars Educational:3.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Fisher-Price Little Superstar Sing-Along Stage (Toy)

This toy has been a huge hit at our house. My five-month-old son loves it as does every other infant/toddler that I’ve had over to my house. It does a great job of encouraging babies to sit up and also helps to develop fine motor skills. The music is not too loud for me and I don’t find it annoying to listen to.

How it works:

There are four instruments: A guitar which baby activates by spinning a ball in the center of the guitar; a piano which baby activates by pressing down on (it’s all one piece, not individual keys); a drum which baby activates by pressing down on; and a trumpet which baby activates by pushing a lever down.

When baby pushes the piano or the drum a little picture of a baby pops up along the bottom of the mirror above the corresponding instrument. I don’t like this feature. My son always wants to grab the little picture of the baby when it pops up and can get very frustrated/upset when he isn’t able to do this. Several of the other babies that I’ve watched play with this toy have also become upset when they’re not able to grab the picture of the baby.

There are two modes. In the sing-a-long mode baby presses any of the instruments and a song plays (it continues playing even if baby keeps pressing other buttons). Each song gets repeated twice-the first time it includes the words and the second time is an instrumental version which baby is supposed to sing-a-long too. In the music mode baby presses an instrument and hears about 30 seconds worth of that instrument playing. If baby presses a second instrument that instrument will be added to the first one (e.g. press the piano and hear a piano playing, press the drum while the piano is playing and you will hear a piano and a drum playing). In either mode the lights at the top of the stage flash on and off while the music is playing.

I really like the way the music works because it doesn’t end up killing my ears the way some musical toys do. No matter how many buttons baby pushes or in what order the music still sounds nice and doesn’t have lots of starts/stops to it. We have other musical toys that restart every time my son hits one of the buttons and this always drives me crazy because I just end up hearing the first couple of notes of a song again and again. It’s really nice that this one plays all the way through even if additional buttons are hit.

This toy is very low to the ground so it won’t work as well with a toddler who wants to stand to play with it. The baby/toddler really needs to be sitting on the ground in front of it as opposed to standing. If you baby isn’t ready to sit up on their own they can still play with it by sitting in a Bumbo seat or something similar or in your lap.

The Fisher-Price Little Superstar Alog-Along Stage is a wonderful toy for children younger than 18 months. It offers a mirror, a rattling microphone, light, music, pop-up, and all of the things that little kids like. The Superstar Sing-Along Stage is built about 6 inches off of the ground, which makes it perfect for your child to crawl up to the Stage and stare in the mirror and bang on the buttons.

While the Superstar Sing-Along Stage is perfect for kids under 18 months, it really isn’t designed for older toddlers. First off it too short for them to stand and use many of the features. My 2 year-old daughter does enjoy it, but it is a little too low to the ground too maintain her interest. It is a little unfortunate because if it was a little larger (and if the microphone actually worked) our daughter would play with it non-stop!

Notes-

– The mirror is not glass (which makes it much safer) , however if it is hit with the microphone it will leave a permanent mark.

– Two volume settings – although it is still pretty loud on the lowest setting

– Two setting for music, instrumental and music with vocals.

– The music quality is very good, both in terms of performance and fidelity

– The lights are very bright … in some ways it reminds me of a carnival ride

– Lots of keys and buttons to bang on

– The microphone is really just a rattle

– Assembly is pretty simple

– It is worth mentioning again, the “Stage” is very low to ground – about 6″

– Very sturdy, unless your child pulls it toward them – it could fall over, although it is light enough that it is unlikely to hurt them

Final Verdict – A very fun toy for infants and waddlers, but toddlers and older kids may not get full use out of it because it is so low to the ground.

4 1/2 stars for kids under 18 months

2 stars for kids over 2 years and older

My 6 month old is just at the point where she can sit for about a minute without falling over (as long as you don’t get her excited at least). So she is the perfect age for a toy that encourages her to sit up.

She absolutely loves the mirror, and the flashing lights captivate her. She’s not very good yet at buttons – it’s a complete accident when she hits them (and then startles a little, looking around, trying to figure out what the sudden noise is). My 3 year old likes to help her with this aspect (see video and there is a photo attached as well). One thing I don’t like is how loud it is when they press the keyboard. I thought it would be separate keys but it’s one piece that depresses no matter which key you touch (and a little baby face pops up in the mirror area).

So you really have one rotating bit (on the guitar), one keypad, one round button, and one pull button. All trigger music or sounds (depending on your setting). Then you have the microphone, which is basically a rattle. There is a high/low button. My baby doesn’t really seem to enjoy the music, even if I dance with her a little.

UPDATE: she’s had this for a month and she still enjoys it, and now understands how to make things happen purposely. The only difference is that the amount of time she spends before losing interest has gradually shortened. Her favorite item is the rotating ball on the guitar. Also – she’s sitting up like a champ now.
