Review: Busy Ball Popper
We took a trip to Babies'R'Us the other day to get Andy some new pajamas, since everything he had was more suited to cold New England Winters, instead of hot North Carolinan springs. While we were there we took a quick detour through the toy section and picked up the Playskool Busy Ball Popper. I seemed to recall reading about it before and figured that Anderson needed some bigger toys.
So far, he's really enjoyed this toy. When I first started it up, he laughed and smiled at it. Eventually he came over to see what all the fuss was about. It only took a day or two before he was playing with the toy all by himself. Typically he'll tip the toy over a little and push the button to start it up. Since its not pointing straight up, all the balls go flying out. Then he'll look around for the balls and put them back in, along with a couple of other toys that convienently fit into the popper. At first, the blower was strong enough to blow anything out, but after two weeks the four D batteries aren't strong enough anymore.
When its running, it plays fun songs like "Rockin' Robin" and has other whacky sound effects. The toy is listed for children 9 months to 4 years. I would say that's just about right, but it might be a little advanced for a some 9 month old babies.
