Vtech Pop-Up Surprise Ball
Advantages: Well priced, colourful, stimulating
Disadvantages: Very loud
My daughter got this toy when she was about 4 months old and she loved it from the start. By around 6 months it was her favourite toy, and while shes progressed to other things now, she does still play with it from time to time.
The Vtech pop-up surprise ball is aimed at babies from around 3 months and is a colourful, fun toy, which lights up and makes lots of noise!
When the star in flush with the ball, it rolls easily and makes a great incentive for parents trying to encourage their babies to crawl.
When the star is pressed a puppy pops up, which always delighted my baby.
The ball will shuts down itself after around 30 seconds of non use, which is good for saving batteries, but also saving the patience of the parents, as this ball, while fantastic for babies, can become really annoying for adults.
This is primarily due to how noisy it is, and the fact that it just seems to go off by itself all the time, and shout random things like "I see you!" Thankfully the volume can be turned down.
The pop up surprise ball is programmed with a number of tunes including Row Row Row Your Boat, Old MacDonald Had a Farm, The Wheels on the Bus and Three Blind Mice. The songs go off at random, depending on which part of the ball is pressed, hence it being a 'surprise.'
Requiring two AA batteries, this toy costs around £10, and is available from most toy shops.
It is excellent for young babies as it really holds their attention and is very stimulating, but it really did wear on my nerves after a while!
Summary: A great first toy for young babies
