    Motor and music are too loud, pops the balls out too fast so they go everywhere half the time, and it's easy to tip over Mar 15, 2019

  • Made my baby laugh and encouraged her to retrieve the balls, making it an active toy. Jan 17, 2019

  • Good quality and lasted a lot time. After my daughter played with it for two years we gave it away. May 10, 2018

  • The plastic pieces came off really easy and I had to always put it together before using. The balls were easily squished and eventually wouldn’t work with the toy. Feb 06, 2018

  • My son had a lot of fun with this. He really got a kick out of the balls popping all over the place. Feb 05, 2017

  • loves it Dec 30, 2016

  • It amazes me how much older kids will get into playing with younger kids with this toy! Oct 05, 2016

  • Kids of all ages love this toy!!! May 25, 2015

  • This thing is so annoying but she thinks it's interesting... doesn't always play with it but it gets used. May 21, 2015

  • Fun toy! A bit noisy though. Apr 07, 2015

  • My 12-month old son loves this. He can turn it on himself and then put the balls back. Good idea to buy replacement balls though - if you lose more than 2 it won't work anymore.... Oct 23, 2014

  • My son loves it and we have a lot of laughs watching the balls shoot out. It would be nice if there was a way to turn down the volume. Oct 01, 2014

  • I'm not sure if ours works properly; sometimes it launches the balls really far and other times they don't even pop out. EVERY time, the LOUD music terrifies our son, even after months of owning it. Aug 22, 2014

  • We got this for a gift. It is fun for the kids, but make sure they are old enough to collect the balls, put them back in the machine and start it again, or you will be chasing balls for hours. For 1+ Aug 20, 2014

  • My son loves watching the balls pop up in the air. Jun 30, 2014

  • My son is completely freaked out by it Jun 17, 2014

  • The music is annoying but the kids love it. One of the first times my girls played "together" was with this toy. Apr 27, 2014

  • ;) Apr 07, 2014

  • The kids love it, but I find the noise super annoying, even with tape over the speakers. Mar 20, 2014

    Oh my goodness is it loud! The fan on the machine that makes the balls pop isn't too loud (makes my son cry, but he hates the vacuum too), but the music is so loud.. The balls are wonderful though. Feb 07, 2014

  • So much fun! Feb 07, 2014

  • For some reason kids of all ages absolutely love this toy. Perhaps it's the cool music or the balls that pop out into the air. Whatever the reason, it keeps them occupied for a fair amount of time. Nov 13, 2013

  • My son had an older version of this toy that he absolutely loved...so fun for him to watch!! Sep 27, 2013

  • This toy lasts! My daughter got it for her first birthday and still plays with it regularly a year later May 21, 2013
