  • My baby loves this! Got it at 6 months old and now at 15 months it’s still his favorite toy. He matches the colors of the balls with the holes and loves the music when the balls drop on the xylophone Nov 07, 2023

  • We received this as a gift, and initially I was skeptical. I was so wrong! My son loves everything about this. He played with is 6 months-2 years+ and is still going strong! Nov 06, 2023

    This is a staple for my first birthday gift list. I buy it quite often for birthday parties. Sep 23, 2023

  • One of my favorite early toys for sitters because you can use the xylophone or balls separately or combine as intended. Solid construction and nice sound to xylophone. Jun 15, 2023

    Our son received this as a gift for his first birthday and loved it! I recommend using with adult supervision if your baby likes to hurl balls! Mar 10, 2023

  • Our child received this for her first birthday and the xylophone was an instant hit. It grows well with kiddos as they begin the underside how the balls work in turn with the music. Great gift idea! Jan 17, 2023

  • My toddler was really interested in this at around 12 months. He lost interest at 18 months but we might re introduce later as the xylophone should be fun, even for an older toddler. Well made. Jan 16, 2023

  • I love that you can use the xylophone separately. The balls and hammer only got a couple weeks of use, but the xylophone is still being played with over a year later! Dec 23, 2022

  • This came with the xylophone bent so a couple keys didn’t make noise. Also I tripped on it and it broke/splintered like crazy so it didn’t feel very solid for the cost. Sep 25, 2022

    We are slowly starting to enjoy this toy at 12m. He gets super excited at the sounds. Mar 26, 2022

  • My kids love putting the balls through the holes and listening to the sounds it makes on the xylophone Nov 12, 2021

  • The balls are a great size for littles to hold and can be used in a variety of ways to entertain my child. Jul 20, 2021

  • Cute little idea for more Montessori type learning. Works just as you would imagine. Jun 22, 2021

  • A beautiful toy with a lovely sound! Xylophone slides out for separate use with the hammer. It’s easy to lose the wooden spheres though. Jun 19, 2021

  • Great eco cause and effect toy. My son loved hammering the ball into the holes and hearing the xylophone make noise as the ball rolled on it. He would also take the xylophone out and play it. May 02, 2021

  • Received this as a gift. My son likes to push the balls through and work in matching colors. Not so much interested in the xylophone aspect of it. But you can slide it out. Feb 26, 2021

  • This is a super versatile and sturdy musical toy. It allows the child to find new ways to make music and encourages creativity. We received it at 1.5 years and still gets regular use a year later! Feb 10, 2021

  • Cute and functional! Love this toy! Oct 02, 2020

  • Great toy for little boys who want to bang things around but still make music! Sep 25, 2020

  • so much fun and practice for little hands. Not overly loud of annoying. Apr 25, 2020

  • This is one of my daughters favorite toys. She loves music! The only downside is the hammer. She likes to carry it around and I'm afraid she will fall with it in her mouth. Feb 03, 2020

  • Received as a gift for first birthday. The balls are very heavy (hurt if thrown at you) and the hammer isn't my choice for a baby toy. I ended up taking it away from my daughter. Jan 24, 2020

    This toy was a hit. Love that it has several things to do in one. Just keep an eye on little one with the hammer, as it’s pretty solid and hard in case they use it on something other than the toy. Jan 19, 2020

  • You can do so much with this toy! Take the xylophone out or use with the balls, use the hammer on the balls or xylophone, work on matching colors with the balls, etc. Jan 03, 2020

  • My daughter loves this or could care less (she’s 1). I think it’s a great 2 for 1 toy and doesn’t take up much space. Jan 02, 2020
