Not terribly exciting....
on October 22, 2012
Overall, I'm not super impressed with this toy! I've listed the pros and cons below, and although the list looks pretty equal, the pros are minor functions compared to the cons of a long time to assemble. I have a 3 year old and a 16 month old and they really don't seem to care for this toy, which was surprising, but it really doesn't do much other than the balls sliding down the ramps.
The post lights up and has fun music
It comes with LOTS of balls, so if you lose some you're not frantically looking for something to make the toy work again
It's fun colors
It has a 2 different music volumes so you can turn it down if you find the music annoying
It takes a LONG time to put together (took me more than 1 hour and I'm good with putting toys together!)
My kids were bored with it after 15 minutes
The toy itself is VERY large and takes up a lot of room (it's about 3 feet in diameter by the time it's all put together)
The balls only can take 2 different tracks, so the limited options, left my kids (3 and 16 months) bored quickly
The "door" they can crawl through doesn't move well and doesn't trigger any music or lights
The music and lights are not always triggered by the balls going through
It's too tall for my 16 month old to put the balls in the top part and The crawl through door is too small for my 3 year old to go through, so it seems like they weren't sure what age/ages they were really making this toy for
