Playskool Busy Ball Popper Review

ball1It's poppin', droppin', air-powered fun! One of PLAYSKOOL'S most popular toys features new colors and characters for 2009. Drop the colorful balls down the track and watch as all five balls pop out of the top chute past a silly face, roll down the brightly-colored track, and then pop out all over again! Sometimes the balls even spill over for delighted babies to chase after. The whimsical BUSY BALL POPPER toy features silly sound effects and eight lively songs that add to the fun.


Playskool sent us our very own Busy Ball Popper for my little boy. I was so excited when it arrived because he has another little toy that spins little balls around and it is his favorite toy so far. I loved the bright colors which create even more excitement around the toy. I knew this one was going to be a hit in our household. The only thing I wasn’t prepared for ball3were the batteries. I had failed to read the side of the package saying “batteries not included” so that put an hour or two delay on our new toy. Boy, was the wait worth!!! My little one squeals in delight each time the balls shoot out! Even more excitement comesball2 out when one spills over the edge and he gets to chase after it. The music and sound effects really make for an exciting toy. One thing I need to note is that there is not a switch to use it without sound. The music is very loud so at moments it can get a bit on my nerves. I really wish it had a mute setting so he could enjoy it and I could enjoy it too :) It only took a few minutes of him watching us put the balls in, and he grasped the concept and began playing himself. He loves it so much that he will sit and play with it for a long period of time. It really captures his attention. It is great because the other Playskool toy with the balls work in this one. So he now has 8 balls he plays with in it instead of 5. This is definitely his New Favorite Toy.

Thanks Playskool for making such a fun toy! This is definitely one item you want to have under your tree on Christmas morning for your kiddos ages 9 plus months!
