The Tomy Pic n Pop is a vacuum like toy which your baby can push around and shoot balls out of from buttons on the handle, and then roll over them to suck them back up into the toy.
I bought this toy for my daughter's 1st birthday, she is walking with a walker and standing up a little but not walking unaided yet, I thought this toy may be a good progression towards helping her walk a little more. Unfortunately this wasn't the case, as you need to hold the toy upright yourself, and if it is leaned on, it will just roll away. Completely my fault as the toy does say 18 months +.
What I did find a little disappointing about this toy is how accurately the balls have to be lined up with the toy for it to be able to pull them back in. I was struggling, sometimes the balls just got pushed away, other times they got into the machine but the machine struggles to pick them up and it just made a terrible clicking noise when being moved, and then sometimes they successfully went in.
My daughter enjoys pushing it around in a kneeling position and playing with the balls at the moment, and I have no doubt she will enjoy playing with it stood up once she is more confident on her feet. It's just a little unreliable about the task it is supposed to perform.
Still not a bad toy for £19.99 though!
This is a fun toy which you wheel along like a hoover and it picks up the balls and you can shoot them out of the front by pressing the buttons on the handle. I bought this for my son's first birthday as I thought it would be good when he is learning to walk. However, because it has to be held upright as it rolls over the balls to collect them and because the buttons require a bit of pressure to push, he isn't able to use it. However, my 2 year old daughter has had lots of fun with it. For her, it is easy to collect the balls and I don't have to worry where she shoots them as they don't go too far or high. I can see this is going to provide great entertainment for my son when is a bit older as long as we haven't lost all the balls by then. It seems quite robust and colourful and in general I am pleased with the purchase.
