Leap Frog Fridge Farm Magnetic Animal Set...
This handy little farm lives on your fridge along with 10 chunky magnetic animal halves to match up. My boys have had this since they were 1 and they still like it and Baby R is already a big fan and pulls herself onto the fridge to play with (and try to eat!) the animals. The farm plays lots of cute songs while teaching kiddos matching skills. When you match two halves correctly it sings a happy little "you made a match" song. If you combine say a pig and a cow it will sing a silly song and give it a silly name like a "cowpig". I like this because it never fails to illicit giggles AND it does not make the child feel bad for not getting a match. Positive reinforcement!
The little farm also plays some fun banjo tunes and teaches animal sounds. It is super durable which we have put to the test in the nearly 3 years we have had it (dropped on hard tile countless times!). It has a volume switch which is great as well as a little handle if your walkers want to carry it from room to room. It uses 3 AAA batteries to run and is recommended from 12 months to 5 years. Pick one of these up to give your kids something to do while you tackle that never ending sink full of dishes!
