VTech baby rattles are great baby toys and baby gifts. Sing along with the Babble and Rattle Microphone by VTech! Just like a real microphone, this interactive microphone amplifies your child’s voice, and the puppy button encourages them to sing along with the songs. Turn the ring to introduce twelve different animals and their sounds or hear playful melodies. Press the instrument buttons to play twelve melodies in either classical or rock ‘n roll style and learn about instruments. When your little one shakes the toy microphone, it will play fun sounds and phrases. Sing and learn with a fun microphone! The baby rattle is intended for babies ages 3 months to 3 years. The toy microphone requires 3 AAA batteries (batteries included for demo purposes only; new batteries recommended for regular use).
