FisherPrice.SmartStagesVacuumNot all vacuums are created equal and Fisher-Price is giving kids ages 1 to 3 a super-cool toy vacuum that features more than 30 sing-along songs, tunes, and phrases making this annoying (or at least I find it annoying) chore a lot of fun. I’d like to say that I am not supporting that parents delegate household maintenance to babies, but they’re never too young to learn and this toy not only inspires early role play, but also introduces colors, shapes, letters, and more to little tikes!

The Laugh & Learn Smart Stages Vacuum is the best kind of vacuum. No one has to turn the TV on full blast in an attempt to mute out the insanely loud noise and this vacuum contains an adorable smiley face decal on the front and three big multicolored light-up buttons. With its sleek, purple handle kids can harness the art of vacuuming, while developing gross motor skills and pushing the toy along to activate fun songs and phrases.

Because this toy utilizes Smart Stages technology, parents can select an appropriate level of play for their kids, or teach kids to use the manual switch to change the Smart Stages level themselves. There are three levels of play and each level contains developmentally appropriate songs, phrases, and sounds. This technology allows kids to grow with the toy instead of outgrowing it too quickly.

This product and more from Fisher-Price will be on display at The Big Toy Book’s Sweet Suite 14 event in New York City on July 17. Part of Blogger Bash, a two-day conference connecting bloggers and brands nationwide, Sweet Suite will feature the hottest toys and games for the upcoming holiday season.
