Ryder had a *small* obsession with the television remote. And when I say small, I mean that we’d often find it curled up with him in his crib. We honestly didn’t understand the fascination until we chatted with other parents who similarly noted the same affliction in their own babies.
Learn to sit. Learn to crawl. Grab the remote. Oh happy days.
To show you just how much we “drank the Kool Aid” (so to speak), for Christmas 2009 Ryder received his very own remote control. Seriously. It was a Best Buy special at $8.99 for a universal remote. BEST present ever.
However, I suppose if I really think about it, it makes perfect sense. It’s a handheld object with colourful buttons. Daddy and mommy reach for it multiple times per day, and when no one’s looking, it’s the perfect teething toy. The thing is – I actually needed my remote to perform a function, and when it’s drool-encased – or moonlighting as a sleep aid – it’s no good to anyone.
Enter the Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn Click ‘n Learn Remote. Finally! I’ve seen toy telephones, toy computers and toy tablets. And now, introducing baby’s very own remote, with realistic styling, buttons to press, lively songs and light-up learning fun! Baby can click away to learn about numbers, opposites, colours, greetings and first words, and sing along to four songs, too.
Develop & Learn:
Light-up musical rewards
• Fun responses help baby understand cause & effect
• Like a real remote control—inspiring early role play!
Lots of buttons to press

“Turn on the smiles and playtime joy with the Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn Click ‘n Learn Remote! Volume control and “channel surfing” are a big part of the role play experience, inspired by the Click n’ Learn Remote’s realistic styling.
With more than 25 sing-along songs, tunes and phrases – each controlled by baby – there’s a new lesson with each push of a button. Smiles will fill up the room as baby learns numbers, opposites, colors, greetings and much more. Turn the volume up and down or switch channels to hear a new station and lots of realistic sound effects, too. Baby will love being in control of his very own learning experience!
Pressing a variety of the Click ‘n Learn Remote buttons promotes the development of baby’s fine motor skills. Fun sounds and phrases teach baby colors, numbers, shapes and more! There are light-up musical rewards, too, as pressing buttons for fun responses helps baby understand cause and effect relationships. Learning couldn’t be more fun!”
