My daughter was bought this at Christmas when she was few months old. Planning older toys in advance! It is fab for helping them at various things....they learn cause and effect from pressing the button and realising it starts up the machine. I found with cheaper batteries the balls come out from the tunnel and follow the track nicely, but once the batteries were empty I bought duracell! This caused more fun as the batteries were so powerful they flew out of the air tunnel d went all over the floor, this in turn then taught her she needed to crawl after them! My eldest daughter at 3 also loved using this, but she can learn the colours of the 5 different balls, and counting them too.
When the button is pressed they also get a tune played, which lasts for a short time with the air...then press for it to start all over again!
Probably best suited when they can sit up alert alone, and able to have control of motor skills to pick up the balls at least, the pressing of the button will follow!
I bought my one year old son this Hasbro busy ball popper for Christmas and both him and my 2 year old loved it.
The ball popper has 5 colourful balls that pop out of the top forced by a slight wind, they then go around the track and start again.
It had a small on/off button on the back and then a big plunger button on the front making it easy for even the smallest children to set going. The balls popping are accompanied by funny music that is very upbeat and adds to the excitement.
The balls often over jump and end up on the floor so have to be picked up and placed back on the run, this help your child with movement and hand eye coordination.
The moment the ball popper starts going both my children's eyes light up and they fill with excitement. The first few times we set it going on Christmas day all the family were laughing and we all loved it however it can get very annoying and is quite loud, the novelty has not worn off with this toy and is still played with quite a lot of the day. I am not sure if that is a good thing or not.
The Playskool Busy Ball Popper is suitable for children aged 9 months and over. It is air powered and with it you get 5 light weight plastic balls which are all different colours. What the child or children have to do is drop the balls on to a track which then drop through a hole in to a see through tunnel and then the air forces them out a hole at the top of the toy so they float in the air before dropping on to a track that swirls downwards and does it all over again, as it does this it plays a tune. Its a very simple toy for children to play with and creates hours of fun and laughter for them.It costs around £20.00 but it is defanatly worth the money nd i would recommend it to any one who has 9 month old children.
my 8 month old daughter was lucky enough to be given the playskool busy ball popper toy, and she loves it.
it is an air powered toy with 5 lightweight plastic balls that roll down the helter skelter slide and into the machine which pops them back out the top to roll back down again.
a very simple toy but it provides so much entertainment.
the machine uses 4 d sized batteries, and plays 8 different fun tunes.
suitable from age 9 months, it is a very bright eyecatching design made from tough durable palstic, the front of the machine is clear so you can see the bright plastic balls being pushed through the tube before being popped out of the top. the balls are large enough to not worry about any choking aspects.
a huge hit all round as my 13 year old son was equally enthralled with it when he was 'showing' her what it does lol
available from most toy shops, online or from argos, it retails at approx £19.99, but really does entertain
i like the toy
i would just like to find more ball for it for my granson thank you my first grandson loved the toy and I just need more balls for it to make it work please . tell me were I can find them . why do i need 75 words. why do I need 75 words . I dont have any tind else to say just need to know about the balls thankyou.
I got my son this toy when he was a year and a half we saw it on an advert on the tv and my son wanted it.
So off we went to our local argos and bought it for £20 which i thought wasnt bad for a toy that has just came out.
It came in a big box and it looked good from the picture on the front but when we took it out it looked very small. But it looked fun and it was nice and colourfull .
It was easy to put together you need 4 d batterys to make it work.
Then you push a big red button at the back and thats when the music starts it has got a fan inside that shoots the air around inside the tunnel and you got 5 different coloured balls that shoot around inside the tunnels and fly out the top of the ball popper and hover in the air
.My sons face just lit up .It had him playing for hours it was probably the best toy that i have bought for him.If you have it on for a while the batterys dont last two minutes.Its a fun and educational toy.Great buy for young toddler would recommend it to any one.
Air-powered toy pops 5 colorful balls out the top then they roll down the track and pop all over again. Silly sound effects and 8 lively tunes accompany the action. For ages 9 mos. and up.
