  • This is a really entertaining you and nice to get some energy out because they have to go and get the balls when they pop out fast. Mar 11, 2024

  • This is a really fun toy. Kind of loud and the scary for babies at first but once they get used to it, they love it. Feb 28, 2024

  • Cute and fun but very loud and wish their was an adjustable volume. Oct 17, 2023

  • My granddaughter is now 1 and is still a little afraid of the balls popping up because it makes so much noise. She does like to put the balls in and turn it upside down for them to come out. Jul 19, 2023

  • My daughter plays with this everyday! It is so fun. And she loves to dance to the little song too Jun 22, 2023

  • My son loved this toy. They are hard to find now though. Jan 28, 2023

  • One of my son’s favorite toys. It’s silly but fun - and helps learning about cause and effect. Mar 19, 2021

  • My 15 month old loves this one, but as the parent I’m kind of neutral. The balls often pop out onto the floor and roll away and there is only one volume setting. Could be better Jan 20, 2021

    This was an okay toy. The motor is really loud and when the balls pop out, they have some force on them so make sure nobody’s hand is in the way. Dec 22, 2020

  • Love love love. When my 12 year old son was little he loved it. And my toddler now loves it. I had to buy it for my second son because i knew he would love it.When the batteries run out he still play. Oct 25, 2020

  • Good for age is 8+ months. Was shocked my infant was able to so quickly with placing the balls in. Although sound is loud and cannot be adjusted May 15, 2020

  • Our kiddos loved this toy so much we bought one for everybody house! They spend hrs playing with it! Jan 04, 2020

    Bright colors and fun sounds! The surprising pops of the balls out the top is even still entertaining for my toddler! Oct 20, 2019

    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
