Push, slide, open, close and turn--a little home for children where there's always more to learn! As children explore the house they can role-play everyday actions related to home with 5 play areas offering more than 75 learning responses. Children learn about opposite words as they open and close the fridge, push the doorbell, slide the window back and forth, push in the birds, flip the light switch and press the ducky. When the sun is in the window children learn about daytime routines and are encouraged to pretend to do things related to morning and lunchtime activities. When the moon is in the window it’s time to learn night time routines and hear bedtime stories. Teaches: opposites and daily routines. Parents can connect to the online LeapFrog Learning Path for customised learning insights and ideas to expand the learning. Appropriate for children ages 6 to 36 months.

1. Both my daughters have played with this from age one through to three. The toy is strong and has withstood a lot of play with no breakages.
My favourite are the two birds on the top of the house who say "tweet" in both very high and very low pitched voices!... The door bell can be rung and the house tells you who is at the door. There are a variety of visitors from astronauts through to the dog walker!
There is also a light switch which turns the light in the window on and off. It will also read a story - this is the only really poor bit - the story isn't really worth listening to - very brief and not a real story at all.
On the back of the house is a bath with a turnable tap and a duck that can be pressed.
Overall, this has been a really good toy for my children. It is easily carried around and transportable too with the handle on the top.
2. My son is currently going through the button/door stage so this toy is just perfect. The 4 sides has something different to push/pull/open/turn on/slide. It is very bright and colourful. The handle on the top is great for him to carry it around with him. He has played with this for a good while at a time. I would recommend this to any parent. The interactive side of the toy is also very good. My little boy was 1.5 when I bought it and my best friends little boy is 3.5 both love it just as much.
3. we bought this for my 1 year old and she loves it, would reccomend this toy for any child that likes pressing buttons and exploring, turning on/off light switches and opening the doors are a nice touch and im glad i purchased this item
4. This house has given my son many hours of fun, especially the doorbell and the door (with the mirror effect behind). I am still surprised by how many things there are to do on this, there are literally dozens of features and sounds and things to move. You can then change to a reverse mode where, things are in reverse, big is small etc, so you get twice as many features!
This is genuinely one of the better things we have purchased for our son and you wouldn't go far wrong if you got your love one this too.
5. Bought this for a few friends now, our own daughter was given one by my parents, now handed down to our son who is 18 months old, this is a toy that entertains (on and off) from 12 months through to 36 months. It has enough different things going on that the child discovers more about it as they develop cognitively. It's a nice size, not too big, easy for kids to get hold of, lots of things to press and open and noises to surprise and delight. Kids love it!
6. I got a lot of toys for my baby son, this one is probably my favorite one. you can take it everywhere you go, there's a story for each moment of the day,little songs that are just right for going to bed and differents sounds which kids can play with. my son just love ringing the door bell. the birds are adorable. I love this toy and I definitively recommend it !
7. This has been so popular since Christmas that the adults nearly took it home! It is quite small - say ten to twelve inches long, but there are plenty of things to grasp for little hands ( and big ones who can't help being curious!) . You could probably take it with you to places as it is manageable .I haven't actually counted the activities but you can alter a button to give more options. It seems strong and the voices are English.
8. I bought this for my lg when she was 1 for Christmas. 2 years later it's still going strong with the same batteries I bought it with. She plays with it all the time still and she is 3. It's in her bedroom so everynight she presses all the buttons and loves to press the doorbell and answer the questions. She also likes opening the fridge and choosing food and turning the light on and off. Would definitely recommend
9. I'm french and living in the UK so I try to mix toys which "speaks" both languages. I've bought it for my little one who is 7 months. I played with him for somedays showing him how to use the different "features" : birds, door, switch on/off light etc... so that he can discover and understand how it works. Now he loves it and plays on is own with it. Definitely a good gift from 6 months.
10. My son is now 3.5 and still likes this toy. He received it as a birthday present when he was 2.5.
At first, I thought he was too old for it and honestly it would have been better if he had it from 6 months.
The lightswitch saved my sanity because now he could turn a light on and off without my having to lift him up for the ones on our wall.
The toy teaches on/off, big/little, up/down, hot/cold and other opposites and has a story mode.
I especially enjoyed the baratone "tweet"
