This product seems to have everything right in a developmental toy. It's colorful, not electronic, makes sounds, has differently colored balls which are easy to grasp and can teach colors, and teaches tracking (it's not too fast) as well as cause and effect of course. And for the adult, it seems like it could occupy a child for a good amount of time (and since time and sleep are precious to parents of very young ones that is a good thing), and another plus is that the pieces separate for easier storage.
The kids who had the most fun with this toy at that time were the 3 and 6 year old kids but for their age, might as well get the marble run type sets where they can learn cause and effect by building their own track and problem solve.
Anyway, back to the baby's experience with the toy. I figured if we just started off with one ramp level instead of two, he would be able to reach it sitting down. He was able to, but any pressure on any part of the toy whatsoever would make even the low tower crumble and fall apart. If I set up both levels, the thing would topple over and hit him on the head when there was the least it pressure on part of it.
I read another user did hot glue and duct tape. I mean if we have to use glue and duct tape for afn infant/ toddler toy, it's probably not worth paying $30 for it.Read more ›
As to the tower, it fell apart every time we tried to use it. I think if we glued it together, it would work better. I put it aside and used the balls alone. If you have the Fisher-Price farm, I put the balls inside the silo and they come out the bottom if the door is open or you can store them in there with the door closed. It was entertaining.
I might also mention that because they are small enough to get under things, if you use the balls on the floor they will roll everywhere and you will end up chasing them and retrieving them from under the sofa or playpen or chairs. You will get a lot of exercise and baby will enjoy watching you run around. LOL I put them in the playpen so they are corraled and still fun.
Yes, the tower does topple when he's rough with it, but I always saw that as a plus. If it didn't come apart temporarily, our rough little guy would have broken it permanently. The way it is designed, it topples occasionally, I fix it, and he continues to play. Plus he gets to experiment with the sideways tower - he was fascinated that the balls wouldn't roll that way!
Finally, the toy still looks brand new after seven months of hard use. Even the little painted smiley faces on the balls are as bright as ever. Speaking of the balls, there are five of them (contrary to the photo), all hard plastic. Two are silent, two rattle, and one has a reflector inside. They bounce tremendously well on tile floors. And they are interchangeable with the balls in the Plan Toys Punch and Drop. It's fun to put one of the wooden Punch and Drop balls onto the Rollipop track and see it roll a little faster, with a deeper sound. (Try a ping-pong ball, too!)

I love that the balls are weighted and roll down the ramp slowly, my 6 month old is able to easily track them and even "catch" the balls as they roll. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Joyce

We bought a Rollipop for my son when he was one and he still loves it 2.5yrs later, so it seemed the perfect gift for another little boys 1st birthday party.Published on November 21, 2013 by Nicole Abood
Very cool toy and the weighted balls really add to the fun. I didn't know that it would be so easy to take apart the stacking trays; my son had them pulled apart in seconds. Read morePublished on March 18, 2013 by HEP
As others have said, this ball tower falls over/apart very easily, not for kids that might hold onto it for stability. Great for those that can put it back together by themselves! Read morePublished on January 30, 2013 by Kelsey Baker
