~*~*~ Funtime Gifts Jumping Ball with Light and Sound ~*~*~
This is a present my youngest received from his uncle for his first birthday back in August. My brother bought it as he has one himself which my son loves so in all it has turned out to be a very good gift!
~ What is it? ~
This is a fun ball with numerous little coloured prongs sticking out of it, the ball jumps around, lights up and giggles. It is very bright yet cute.
~ My Thoughts ~
The box says this is suitable for ages 3+ but my son has been playing with my brothers one of these since he was about 8 months old and received his own when he turned one, I can't see anything that would pose a choking hazard looking at in now and my son plays with it under supervision anyway so I think so long as it's supervised play it is good for any age.
My son particularly loves the way it bounces around the living room giggling which has always made him chuckle and I think it is a rather cute toy due to the fact that the giggle is that of a baby like one!
The ball has a switch to turn it on and you can also choose to turn the sound off. The ball activates with a loud sound such as a clap or as my son does ... A screech!
The flashing lights are incredibly bright but this adds to the fun.
My son likes to hold the ball whilst it jiggles away and vibrates in his hands and then he lets it go and it bounces across the living room like something crazy! The little prongs are quite soft to touch so it doesn't clang about and make a racket but the giggle is quite infectious and has us all giggling along with it.
It takes 3AA batteries which need to be placed in the inside of the ball, this is done very easily by unclipping the plastic tabs and pulling it apart.
The ball is made of clear slightly frosted plastic and the strong slightly soft prongs are coloured in green, red and blue.
I believe my brother paid £7.99 for this from a local store that sells a variety of different things, but I can see that it is available on Amazon priced at £4.99.
It's really quite cool and is one of my sons favourite toys, it is often the first one he will look for in his toy box and has had a lot of use of the last few months.
It's well made and hasn't showed any sign of breaking.
