Promotional Review Smart Stages Piggy Bank By Rachel and Maddox Maddox is 9 months Rachel's score 5 Star(s) Buy Now "This toy really does grow with your baby and I can see many years of play to be had with the Smart Stages Piggy Bank." The Smart Stages Piggy Bank is a great idea for a toy with a lot of features including the brightly coloured numbered coins and many different phrases, sounds and music. Maddox really enjoys playing and discovering with this toy. He loves pushing the nose and hearing the Piggy say "That’s my nose!" as well as listening to the different songs, words, phrases & numbers. He still needs help to post the coins in the slot but this will come with practice. Like any 9 month old baby, most toys go straight to their mouth and the coins are perfect for this as well as putting them in and out of the opening door on the side of the Piggy Bank. You drop the coins in the top and you can see them fall down into the Piggy's tummy which I think is great as it really encourages your baby to discover what has happened to them, and it also counts the coins as you put them in encouraging your baby to repeat words and learn to count. One of the great features of the Smart Stages Piggy Bank is that unlike a lot of toys, it is perfect for both Maddox and his 2 year old sister to play with together as it has different levels depending on your child's development. It’s a toy that they can both interact with as they can take it in turns to post the coins in the slot. This toy really does grow with your child and I can see many years of play to be had with Piggy. The improvement I would make would be for this toy to have a volume control setting as I do feel that it’s a little loud. However, I would recommend this toy to friends and family, I will also be buying this as a Christmas gift this year.
