It has 6 animal shapes that when placed in their correct positions make noise and light up the chimney. The sounds are loud and clear. This toy plays multiple songs when on the song mode. Each piano key will play a different nursery rhyme tune.
Piano mode a child can free play and the notes are in tune. The animal and shape toys are large enough to prevent choking, this is a plus for small child toy.
This toy has many different sensory features to help build motor skills and provide an exciting experience. It also comes with 5 shapes for the littles to learn and place correctly.
The side opposite the shapes was what children enjoyed. It has an abacus as well as fun shapes to turn with different sides so that when they are a little older you can work on simple math problems. There is also a keyboard that plays music and notes too.
The other end has a door that you can open with a key. There is a puppy that holds the key. Just pull the key & unlock (or lock) the door. When you are finished, turn the knob above the puppy & the string will retract until the key reaches the puppy.
The cottage has a carrying handle on top. The entire thing is made of a heavy duty plastic material, including the shapes.
Another fun part is the soft round door that children can put their hand through to retrieve the animal and shape figures. The "door" made of soft silicone type material. The child (or adult) can reach their hand through to remove the shapes. The opening closes enough so that the shapes will not fall out when moving around.
