“ Brand: Tomy / Age: 9 months „
I bought this toy for my first daughter when she was around 1 year of age. The balls are big enough to be grasped easily and some of them rattle. The stand however can be easily pulled apart and I often had to reassemble it. It is a much loved toy in this household, my middle child also adores it. It helps develop hand eye coordination and my daughters like to try to race each other with the balls.
It isn't too large, so doesn't take up room and needs no batteries. A simplistic toy at its best. Priced at around £15, it is good value for money and safe to leave your child playing with unattended. You can reassemble to change the order of the colours and i would often teach my children about colours depending on what level the ball was on. All in all a worthwhile buy.
We bought this toy on a recommendation, and it was a good choice. It is a plastic helter skelter with pieces that slot together so that you can have it at full height, or smaller for a younger baby. It comes with 10 different colour and texture balls. The child can post the balls into the funnel on the top, and they fall down, going round and round the helter skelter until they come out into a collection point at the base, ready to be put back in again. I’ve been amazed at how popular it is! We got it for our one year old (it’s age 9 months plus on the packaging) but our older daughter who is nearly 3 has probably played with it at least as much. It is played with several times a day and seems at the moment to be an endless source of amusement. You can also get a Bridge toy (we don’t have this) which can be used independently, or connect with the ball spiral.
Put the coloured balls in the top and watch them spiral down.
