“ Brand: Playskool „
We bought this for my 1yr olds birthday. We were hoping it would hold her attention and maybe encourage her to be a little more active.
This toy required 4 x D battery's which do not come included, it is bright and colorful and includes 5 balls. The toy is air powered, there is and on of switch on the back which is handy, i particularly like the fact you can turn in on but it doesn't continuously go, to get it to work you push a big orange button (the smiley face you can see in the picture) nice and easy for little ones to get the hang of, it plays a tune, pops the balls out of the top, some over shoot, some land in the track, iv found it all depends on how 'new' your batteries are as to how high it pops the balls out. The balls go down the track and back through the machine to get 'popped' out again. Once that particular tune has finished it stops until the button is pressed again.
This toy has done well at entertaining my 1yr old and also keeps my 3yr old amused for quite a while aswell, they race to fetch the balls that land on the carpet to put them back onto the track, the whole time its being played with they are in fits of giggles. Well worth the money!
It is well built and very sturdy definitely a toy built to last, the battery's also last very well in it unlike a lot of other children's toys that drain battery's very quickly. The only complaint i have is replacement balls seem very hard to come by. At one point we only had 2 of the 5 balls, after a lot of searching and a few emails with no reply's i gave up, luckily we eventually found the missing balls and we now have all 5 again!
Drop a ball though the shoot and they pop out all over again. This air-powered toy includes 5 balls and has fun music and sound effects. To be used under the direct supervision of an adult. General information: Batteries required: 4 x D (not included). For ages 9 months and over.
