Best Fisher-Price baby toys

Best smart puppy

This cute little guy chats, lights up and loves to cuddle. Your child can press Puppy's hands, foot, heart, nose, or ear to hear first words, colours, the alphabet, parts of the body and more.

Review: "Absolutely brilliant this has got to be my best buy! I got it in the Black Friday sales, too, at a bargain price. The saying and rhymes are short... had my little one flapping every couple of seconds for me to press again, but if you hold the heart down for a second or two, every nursery rhyme plays one after the other no touching needed!! Absolute godsend, and the lights are bright and colourful too."

Suitable from:6 months - 2 years

A classic toy, this Giant Rock-a-Stack takes the classic combination of wibbly-wobbly base and colourful rings and super-sizes it for big-time stacking fun for your toddler.

Review: "Brilliant jumbo version of a much-loved classic. Lightweight, easy to clean and very versatile. Our little girl pretends the rings are wheels, donuts, bracelets etc., and the holder is an umbrella in her imagination. Brilliant toy and used much more than our smaller version."

Suitable from:12 months and over

Best tummy time toy

This adorable llama friend has 13 sensory discoveries for your baby to explore and encourages tummy time. There are 7 soft and satiny fabrics for little hands to explore, a watermelon rattle and crinkly mat for making fun sounds, a removable self-discovery mirror, and a chewy, textured carrot teether.

Review: "This Lama by Fisher Price is a great way for our baby to develop and prepare for sitting and crawling. So far, we've tried him on it a few times, and he appears to love it. The lama is soft and snuggly, and he likes looking In the mirror at himself."

Suitable from:Birth

Best counting toy

Introduces your baby to numbers, counting, opposites and more as they drop the colourful coins into the piggy's back and open the door to pour them back out again. Press the piggy's snout for silly sounds and exciting bumbling motions, and your baby will be giggling all the way to the bank!

Review: "What a great toy! My daughter loves it! She doesn't yet know how to post the coins, but she is very interested in the colours and the pig."

Suitable from:Six months

The calming music and sounds, super-soft fabric, and rhythmic breathing motion of this otter-ly cuddly pal help soothe and comfort your baby at home or on the go. Choose sounds, including white noise, womb, snoring or heartbeat sounds, adjust the volume, and turn on or off the soft light and breathing motion.

Review: "I got this little cute otter for my daughter for Christmas. She is 8 weeks old. It's so soothing. The music is nice and soft and has just the right volume. The belly moves in and out, and the belly lights up, and it's not too bright, it's just enough. As soon as I put it on, within minutes, my baby girl is sound asleep. It's amazing, I recommend it for every parent to get one of these."

Suitable from:Birth

Best toddler chair

Gives your toddler a comfy spot of their own with The Laugh & Learn Smart Stages Chair. As little ones play and explore this interactive toy chair, they're rewarded with colourful lights, fun songs, sounds, and learning phrases.

Review: "I purchased this Fisher Price Smart stages chair for my son for his 1st Christmas present, and it has been a massive hit. I absolutely love the colour and the function of this product. It is high quality, super fun and easy for the little ones. This product has a lot to discover. Educational, unique and helps your child's growth and development. There are buttons on the chair, and a flip flap book, when opened and pressed, plays a range of phrases and songs."

Suitable from:12 months

Best roleplay toy

Serve up hours of learning and role-play fun with this interactive food truck. The blend of kitchen and vehicle play keeps mini-entrepreneurs busy with lots of role-play, such as greeting customers, working the register, prepping "orders" on the light-up grill, and more. They'll also be introduced to sizing and sequencing, advanced vocabulary, manners, taking turns, and more with lively songs, sounds, and phrases.

Review: "What a lovely item! I was a bit unsure about buying it as my daughter has just turned 3, and I noticed the item was advertised for 1-3 years, but her face lit up when she saw it so decided to purchase it anyway, and it's been a very big hit! She's played with it all day, and even her older siblings have been getting involved as she's been "cooking" food for them. Very well made and one of the best gifts I've bought her. Hours of fun."

Suitable from:18 months

Best car garage
Fisher-Price Little People Helpful Neighbor's Garage
Price: $23.99
Alternative retailers
Target$23.99View offer
Kohl's$23.99View offer
Walmart$32.00View offer

Ideal for toddlers who like their cars, this ​garage includes two vehicles with built-in characters for your child to play with in the garage. Place a car on the mechanic's platform and lift it to take a look underneath, and ​turn the crank to ride the elevator up and down.

Review: "Delightful garage with two cars. One lift is great, with a bell ringing when the lever is turned. Easy to carry by little people. It's an improvement on the original, which you couldn't carry. Only complaint is that the green lift platform is difficult to raise. Perhaps another lever could be introduced for that, so you press down, and it raises! It's very frustrating to operate as it is."

Suitable from:18 months

Best engaging owl toy
light up owl
Price: $38.79

With multicoloured lights and over 90 songs, sounds and phrases, the Light-Up and Learn Owl is super engaging for toddlers. It's even part of the Linkimals, which interact with each other when they're together.

Review: "My little boy is obsessed with the linkimals, so he's over the moon with his new owl. He plays songs and shares facts."

Suitable from:18 months and over

Best robot toy
Fisher-Price Bright Beats Dance & Move BeatBo
Price: $133.28

Get your baby moving and grooving with Dance and Move BeatBo. Just press his tummy or any of the buttons on his feet to activate fun songs, learning content and dance moves. You can even record a phrase for your little one, and he'll remix it into his favourite song!

Review: "Bought this for an Easter present for my boy and Absolutely love it… I've been having so much fun with the voice recorder, never mind my son!!! My son loves watching the colours of the lights and the dancing, and I'm sure he will be dancing along with it in time to come."

Suitable from:9 months - 3 years

Best phone toy

Baby always stealing your phone? Try to tempt them with their own! This one from Fisher-Price has over 20 sing-along songs and phrases as well as bright colours, music, lights and sounds to stimulate your baby's visual and auditory development.

Review: "After receiving this, my 9-month-old quickly made this her favourite toy. After multiple times of stealing our phones and remote control, we decided to get her her own little toy smartphone. Each button has two noises, one says the biker, and if you press the same key again, it does something different, so it doesn't sound too repetitive like other toys. It's very hard wearing as my little one likes to fling things on the floor at the minute. I would recommend it to anyone's little one who keeps stealing phones and remote controls from you."

Suitable from:Six months

Best pull-along toy

Get your tot walking with Lil' Snoopy. They can grasp the leash and pull him along, developing fine and gross motor skills. There are also fun rewards like sounds and ear wiggles to encourage little ones to do it all over again.

Review: What a lovely toy. I ordered this for a friend's one-year-old, and she absolutely loves it. I first saw this toy when my niece received it a couple of years ago, and know what a popular toy it is. It is well made and sturdy, so any time that it is dropped on the floor or kicked by accident, I'm not worried that it is going to break."

Suitable from:12 months

Review: "Great toy. Just like the one I had when I was a kid way back in the 70s. The toy actually gave me nightmares when it came to life and started chasing me around the room, which is probably why I remember it so well. Anyhow, it's great, solidly made, and I bought it for my little nephew."

Best classic cash register
Fisher Price Classics Cash Register Toy
Price: $42.00

Kids will love playing shopkeeper with this seventies-style cash register which is perfect for shopping make-believe and introducing tots to numbers and currency for the first time. It's got shop-appropriate sound effects, chunky buttons and a lever that opens the till, plus money to exchange for goods.

Review: "Great product, just like my parents' one from when we were little. I got this over the cheaper one as the colour of the buttons are better in contrast for little learners than the other colours that are more similar to each other. Simple but effective, this toy, the kids have hours of fun learning and make-believe when they're older."

Suitable from:18 months
