Review Summary

This is the summary of consumer reviews for Fisher-Price Brilliant Basics Friendly Flip Phone (6 Months +). The BoolPool rating for this product is Good, with 3.90 stars, and the price range is $8.99-$10.99.

Fisher-Price Brilliant Basics Friendly Flip Phone is an entertaining, fun and learning toy with sounds and music. Each time baby flips the phone open, a mouse, kitty and puppy take turns appearing with a friendly “Hello!” When baby presses buttons on the phone, it plays 3 ring tones or musical key tones. And of course, closing the phone means it’s time to say “Good-bye.” The process of opening and closing the flip phone and pressing the buttons helps kids develop their motor skills.

This Flip Phone also helps develop kid’s language skills by encouraging children to speak by repeating the words from phone. This toy phone is compact and good size for small hands. It is easily portable and can be a good toy for car rides. The songs play for short period of time and thus do not annoy many adults.

Some parents report that the flip cover can be hard to open for some kids. Some buyers found this toy to be bulky and heavy for their kids. This toy may not hold kid’s attention for long time since some kid’s favor the real cell phone when compared to this toy.

Overall, Fisher-Price Brilliant Basics Friendly Flip Phone is an inexpensive and fun toy where baby can press a button to hear 1 of 3 ringtones and enjoy the short musical tones. This is a good toy for pretend play.
