One of the most common ways people identify activities or things is by the sounds they make. The Fisher-Price Little People Happy Sounds Home helps little ones to associate the sounds they hear every day with common household items and activities. It is a toy that can help children to become more comfortable with their surroundings, and identify household items without seeing them.
To help in making interaction with daily activities easier, the Fisher-Price Little People Happy Sounds Home comes with an entire family that children can recognize as representing their own families.
This toy is a fun way for children to understand the world around them better, and to connect noises they hear every day with their sources.
The Fisher-Price Little People Happy Sounds Home comes with mom, dad and baby figures that children can easily identify with themselves and their own parents. The home comes with some furniture that can be used like it is used in the real house, and it also has a dial at the top to indicate night and day.
Each function of the house has a sound associated with it, and the Fisher-Price Little People Happy Sounds Home is filled with daily activities your children can do on their own. The Happy Sounds Home includes everything from the sound of a door bell to a toilet flushing. It is the ideal toy for your little one to use to become comfortable with their own surroundings.
The Fisher-Price Little People Happy Sounds Home is recommended for children from 12 months to four years of age, and requires three "AA" size batteries to operate.

While the Fisher-Price Little People Happy Sounds Home is designed for indoor use, it is durable enough to take outside. Some of the more helpful features of the Happy Sounds Home include:
The Fisher-Price Little People Happy Sounds Home does have small features that are for decoration only. There is a chimney on the house, but it does not offer any animated features. There are vines and flowers on the sides of the house that are only there for decoration.
The benefit of the Happy Sounds Home is that children can interact with everything they have in their home, and become more familiar with them. Sudden noises such as a toilet flushing or the buzzer on the washing machine going off are featured in this toy to allow children to become familiar with those sounds and not be so frightened by them.
Parents should also watch their children at play with the Happy Sounds Home to understand what their children consider to be a happy home. For example, a child that shows the whole family going to the refrigerator to get food may prefer that the family eat its meals together. This toy can teach children about household items, and help parents to understand their children better.
There is a small amount of assembly required for the Happy Sounds Home.
Fisher-Price has a toy called the Little People Neighborhood Playground Set which could almost be called a sequel to the Happy Sounds Home. With the Neighborhood Playground Set, children are given the chance to interact with real items they would find on a playground, and become comfortable with the idea of interacting with other children.
My Girl's Dollhouse manufactures a product called the Sweet Bungalow Dollhouse that is very similar to the Happy Sounds Home. With the Sweet Bungalow Dollhouse, children can create their own home routines using the variety of accessories that come with the toy. Each major room in the home is represented in the Sweet Bungalow Dollhouse, and this toy can be used with up to 10 dolls at a time.
