My daughter received the pink version of this for her first birthday and loved it!
The Bruin Peek in Roller is available at Toys R Us, priced around £4.99 and is available in pink or blue. My daughter had the pink version as she is pink mad! The age suitability is 9 months+.
It comes in a small flat box deflated, and to set it up you simply inflate it as you would a balloon and plug the valve lid back in. Very quick and simple to do.
The toy is a relatively wide tube (either pink or blue) with ABC and pictures of animals on the outside. It is transparent at either end, just clear plastic, so the child can see through from one end to the other. There is also a clear plastic transparent window about half way down the roller for the child to peek in. Inside the roller are 2 small balls (one blue, one green) and a slightly larger pink ball.
The functions of the roller are whatever you want them to be. The product is designed for the child to 'peek' inside and watch the balls rattle around as they roll the roller, but there are many other functions it can do. My daughter loves to bat it, throw it and roll it to hear the balls rattle and to see them rattle. She also likes to roll it to and from me as if we were playing catch. Her all time favourite is to peek in one end whilst I peek in the other, like a telescope. She also loves doing this to our cats lol. She's had this since she was 12 months old, she's now 22 months and still plays with it regularly and still gets a lot of enjoyment out of it.
It is very lightweight so I agree with the age range - however I think even younger babies would get enjoyment out of batting it and seeing/hearing the balls rattle inside. It is wipe-clean only but very easy to clean. It has stood the test of time as my daughter has sat on it, bitten it, thrown things at/on it etc. and it is still in perfect condition. You can deflate and inflate as required, which means it is small enough to store, take on holiday or even take to visit the grandparents.
For the price, it is a fantastic toy and one of my daughter's favourites. I can't really fault it to be honest!
