Promotional Review Smart Stages Puppy By Natasha and Aaron Aaron is 9 months Natasha's score 4 Star(s) Buy Now “The Smart Stages technology is a great feature and will mean this toy will grow with Aaron”. From the moment Aaron saw the box for the Laugh & Learn Puppy he became really excited, when I took it out of the box Aaron loved listening to the songs and seeing the heart light up. I think the Smart Stages Technology that grows with your child is very clever and it is a toy that I know will grow with Aaron. He is a little too young to know how to keep pressing each part of the puppy to hear a song or phrase but when he does touch the right body part or if I help him, he smiles with happiness and is really engaged and stimulated by this toy. My 3 year old has loved showing Aaron how the Puppy works and he is even singing one of the songs that the Puppy plays on a regular basis which is very sweet and shows the longevity of the product. I think this is also a great travel toy and I also like the volume setting which I thought was unique for a toy like this.
