Barney Lets Go LaptopBarney Let's Go Laptop

Barney Let's Go! Laptop; JAKKS Pacific, Inc.; Recommended for ages 18 months +, price range $14.99 -$19.99.

For nearly two decades young children have been journeying through learning adventures with Barney and his friends. The Let's Go Laptop is a brightly colored plastic toy that brings the learning adventure right to your child's hands. Your child can select one of three double-sided, plastic discs/cards to slide into the screen of the laptop. They can choose from a farm, picnic, beach, classroom, zoo, and the circus.

Front and center, right where the finger pad would be, is a large purple button with a smiling Barney head. When your children presses the Barney button he will ask a question about colors, shapes and numbers pertaining to the particular scene on the screen. Children can answer by pressing one of the large numbered buttons or one of the primary colored shapes. All buttons are well-spaced and easy for little fingers to press. No worry if the wrong button is pressed Barney will just repeat the question. When the correct button is pushed your child will hear something like,"Right, you're good at this!", or "You're right, super-de-duper!". When done kids can easily slide the cards into the back of the laptop for easy storage and travel. Barney's Let's Go Laptop introduces and familiarizes preschoolers with different environments, basic numbers, shapes and primary colors. In addition it reinforces language development, listening skills and hand - eye coordination. The interactive quizzes enable preschoolers to enjoy learning; the laptop design allows them to do so alongside their parents.

The recommended age is children 18 months and older. Young ones will be stimulated with the musical sound effects, the Barney-themed styling and over 200 Barney character phrases. While the question and answer aspect and laptop design will keep older kids busy and entertained for quite awhile. The Let's Go! Laptop is a great first laptop and you'll like the fact that it comes with the three required AA batteries.
