ScoopyOwl looks into the Top 5 Worse Toy / Products of all time from Fisher-Price
1 – Imaginext Mega Apatosaurus by Fisher-Price
Imagine…a world of action and excitement where kids decide what happens next! Get ready for a mega prehistoric adventure with the Imaginext Mega Apatosaurus. With motorized action, it walks and roars like a real dinosaur. Plus, this one comes with cool transforming tech armor and cannons that fire! – Wrong: this toy does everything on its own, there is no way this toy encourages imagination. Plain Stupid
2 – Fisher-Price Ipad Apptivity Seat, Newborn-to-Toddler.
The Fisher-Price baby bouncy seat with an iPad holder just above the little Kit’s face is just wrong. If your child has special needs and requires the use of an Ipad and a seat, then this makes sense otherwise ignore this product. Why would you put a new born or a toddler in front of a screen. Plain Stupid
3 – Fisher-Price Deluxe Apptivity Gym
Fine and gross motor development, hand eye coordination and tracking are all skills that can be practiced with an activity gym. However, this gym has a place where you place a mobile phone into where traditionally the mirror goes, what do you think your baby will do? Interact with the activity gym or stare at the screen?. Plain Stupid
4 – Fisher-Price Laugh and Learn Apptivity Puppy
Why there has to be a screen time and why can’t a baby have a simple stuffed animal puppy that he can learn to pretend with? This one even comes complete with a pouch in in its stomach to hold (and protect) mom or dad’s iPhone/iPod and it’s hands and feet can be pressed to interact with the apps. Mom and Dad in todays word seem to be more buzy then find time interacting with their baby, pointing out and labeling the puppy’s tail, paws, eyes, nose, mouth, ears? Plain Stupid
5 – Rock ‘n Play sleepers by Fisher-Price
As of today, all models of Rock ‘n Play sleepers by Fisher-Price are being recalled after reports of infant fatalities occurring while using the product. Over a period of time more than 30 infant fatalities have been reported since the product was introduced in 2009, “after the infants rolled over while unrestrained, or under other circumstances,” according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
