Toys That Make Animal Sounds

Introduction

Toys that make animal sounds are popular among parents because they are fun and there is a learning element involved. Hearing a cow moos or a lion roars after a button is pressed also exposes a toddler to the world of cause-and-effect. They are usually accompanied by upbeat melodies or ABCs too to help a toddler learn a few other things besides animal sounds alone. If your toddler is the more adventurous kind, a dinosaur toy is also a good alternative.
