Infantino is a well-known company who make products specifically designed for parenting.
“Smartly-designed products for happy parenting™”
Infantino has a wide range of products including, feeding, nursing, carrying and toys. Their products are generally known for a combination of being good quality and an affordable price.
Among their more popular products are the Infantino Light up Baby Toys, and today I’m going to be taking a look at a couple of them. First up is:
Infantino Topsy Turvy Lights and Sounds Musical Touch Pad
This Infantino musical touch pad is really a very simple device designed for younger babies. It has a touch sensitive surface which twinkles when touched. Infantino recommend this for 9mths up but a younger baby would be able to have fun with it. It features:
- Song and sound effects, 14 different ones.
- A keyboard of one octave.
- The surface has light up effects and is soft-touch.
- A volume control with an on/off switch.
- There are 2 modes of play, melody and silly Sound Effects.
The 2 modes of play teach cause and effect with the fun songs encouraging musical discovery. It has an auto shut off which is great for saving batteries, but younger babies will find it tricky to turn back on, parents will need to do this for them!

Battery life is supposed to be 720hrs, but this depends on how the tablet is being used. Continual play on the soft touch surface will drain the batteries much faster.
There has been reports of this Infantino touch pad breaking after a short time, half of the touch screen not working. Having said that, customer support is good and Infantino encourage you to contact them if there’s a problem with any of their products.
This Infantino light up baby toy is a useful toy your baby will enjoy and at a good price. It’s robust enough to withstand being thrown around and if it does break, not too expensive to replace.

Infantino Lights & Sound Touchpad
Again, this is a simple pad designed for young babies. Unlike the Topsy Turvey Pad, the animals on the screen don’t light up, there’s just the flashing red light underneath the touch-pad area.
It’s been designed as a sensory stimulating toy and comes with a battery ready to use. There are no dangerous projections or removable bits so babies as young as 4/5 mths will have some fun playing with this.
- A learning toy which is touch activated.
- For melodies and animal sounds, just press the smiling faces.
- There 5 melodies and 9 animal sounds.
- If you’re travelling this will keep baby amused for a while.
- Recommended Ages: 6 – 18 months
It’s robust! Because the Infantino Lights & Sound Touchpad is based on simple electronics, there’s not a lot can go wrong. It’s a shame the speaker is on the back, when it gets laid down flat as the sound can get muffled.
A good robust basic toy for young babies at an affordable price.

Ease of Use
Learning and Development
The Infantino Light Up Baby Toys are good value for money but only really suitable for younger babies. Older ones would soon get boredas there’s no facility to add extra apps like the Leapfrog products.
