Fisher-Price has launched a new series of toys children and their parents might equally enjoy.

The new Laugh & Learn products are inspired by products from the 1980s and 1990s, aiming to lean into young parents' love of nostalgia and help them relive childhood memories.

"At Fisher-Price, we’re always looking for ways to create playful connections between children and the grown-ups in their lives," said Chuck Scothon, Fisher-Price senior vice president and global head of infant and preschool at Mattel.

The toys include Busy Boombox, for $19.99, which has music and lessons for babies.

Puppy's Mixtape, for $7.99, looks like a cassette tape and teaches the alphabet, counting and colors through songs, sounds and phrases.

In August, Fisher-Price launched a series of toys inspired by the new work-from-home wave spurred by the pandemic. Mattel, which owns Fisher-Price, also released a new line of action figures and toys resembling essential workers, including doctors, nurses, emergency medical technicians, grocery workers and delivery drivers.
