are good for standing on! Both babies are pulling up and loving this toy! It plays animal sounds and sings to them in the animal voices. You have to be under the age of two to appreciate it, I think. Normally, Caroline has it switched to the Spanish side, so we hear all of the nursery rhymes in Spanish. I love how they are getting to play on their own, but as they become independent, it also means that they move farther away from the baby stage...BITTERSWEET!
