Roll-a-Rounds Drop & Roar Dinosaur and Listen-Up Rounds
When I was young, I remember getting a doll that rollerskated. It was what I wanted most for Christmas, so I was thrilled to open that present and see this doll. That day my mother put batteries into her, and we tried her out. She didn't work though. Instead of rollerskating she'd fall over. I was very disappointed, and I never really played with her after that.
This is what I don't want to happen to Andy. I want to buy his presents that he'll get a lot out of. I don't want to spend my money on something he'll like for a half hour and then ignore from then on. This is one reason I really like the comment section on Amazon. I use it to help me decide if I really want something or not. I was very interested in the Roll-a-Rounds Drop & Roar Dinosaur, especially since we already own the balls that it needs. Although it'd be a tight fit in our little apartment, I figured I'd find a place for it because it looked like so much fun for Andy. But almost everyone who owns it, according to Amazon's comments, doesn't like it.
However, I must recommend the Listen-Up Rounds. Andy still is a little small to really play with them, but he loves the noises when I play with them in front of him. I think they are a toy that he'll use for a long time, and the comments on these are pretty good.

I have to say my daughter loved the dinosaur. It did need a little bit of space to sit and couldn't really be put away... but she sat next to it all the time. She especially liked the "roar". Zoe is 17 months old now, and she still likes the dinosaur but has mostly moved on to different toys. One funny thing about the dinosaur... when our niece and nephew come over (ages 3 and 2) they love playing with the dinosaur. So we're putting him away for now... but he might make it back out when we're looking for something "new".
