Your infant will love the bright, happy, and spinning colors of the Explore and Grow Tumble 'N Twirl. A quick pump of the top plunger makes the fluorescent balls jump and tumble like popcorn, swirling the colors together into a vibrant show. And because the door can open to let the balls escape, your infant will get plenty of exercise scrambling to find the balls. Designed for infants six months and above, this fun, interactive toy will keep your baby happily occupied with lots of fun and healthy exercise.

What We Think

Fun factor:
Durability:
Ease of assembly:
Educational factor:

The Good: Helps your infant improve gross motor skills and hand-eye coordination.

The Challenging: Hollow plastic could result in breaking if dropped or thrown repeatedly.

In a Nutshell: Colorful balls swirl and pop in the spinner, or onto the ground for chasing.



You never know where the balls may land when the door's open!View larger.

Watch The Balls Pop Among Colorful, Happy Characters
Outfitted with four large, colorful balls, which are compatible with other Explore and Grow products, the Tumble 'N Twirl has a sliding plastic door that can stay closed for spinning or open for spilling. Your infant can take the balls out, pop the balls back in, pump the plunger to watch them spin, or open the door to watch them tumble out--providing many options for the different ages and developmental ranges of your infant.

The balls are small enough for most six-month-old infants to hold in their hands, but plenty large enough not to be a choking hazard. Though the ball-twirler is made of a durable, sturdy plastic, keep in mind that it can still break with repeated dropping. Also be careful of runaway balls, since you never know where they may land once they come popping out of the spinner.

Toy That Grows Along Side Child
The Tumble 'N Twirl has a variety of activities for different developmental levels. For younger infants, the combination of bright colors and the kinetic movement of the balls will be plenty to keep them occupied. The spinner also helps your infant with eye-and-hand coordination, and it helps improve their gross motor skills.

The silly, smiling faces and vibrant, bright colors make this toy visually appealing, even to adults. It may become a little too simple for older infants, but for the younger one's still trying to figure everything out--it's one fun-filled, ball-spinning top.

What's in the Box
Ball spinner and four plastic balls.

This is a kid-powered version of the busy ball popper. I recommend it for kids from sitting up through 2 years. No batteries, no sounds. The balls spin around fascinatingly, and for more fun the door opens so they skitter away! My son, now 15 months, got this for his first birthday and has played with it daily since, learning how to open and close the door himself, run to gather all the balls, then put them back and start over. Very engaging and lots of fun!

This is currently my 8 month old son's favorite toy. He has just learned how to push down on the lever to make the balls spin by himself. But he loves to open the plastic door and take the balls out. He loves those balls!

I purchased this toy for my 16 mo. old twin grandsons, primarily based on so many positive reviews. I was a little concerned because there's a "choking hazard" warning on the product page for children under 3 years of age and yet the manufacturer's age recommendation is 9 mos. to 4 years.
The balls are way too large to be swallowed and I couldn't find anything about the toy that looked hazardous. SO - let the gift giving begin!
The plunger is what makes this toy so much fun for the boys and frankly, the balls were secondary at their age. They even put their small toy trucks in the container and watched & listened to them spinning around as well. So far, this is their "go-to" toy and, because I didn't get TWO of them, they're also learning how to share because it's THAT popular:)

Our daughter has played with her Playskool Explore and Grow Tumble N Twirl (now that is a mouth full) with well over a year. Early on (before she turned 1) she simply liked pushing down to see if she could make the toy spin. As she got older she enjoyed watching the ball twirl around... now that she is approaching two she loves to put the balls in, watch them twirl and then watching them pop out. This makes the Tumble N Twirl a rare breed a toy that entertains both an infant and toddler.

A few other notes

- Uses the same balls as Playskool Explore and Grow Busy Ball Popper

- It is nice to have a toy that does not make electronic sounds or require batteries

- Seems to be very durable

- Helps with motor school development - placing balls in-and-out,, making the top spn

Final Verdict-

Hard to find any faults with the Playskool Explore and Grow Tumble N Twirl. It is a toy that my daughter still enjoys even after a year.

My 18 month old graddaughter loves it.... she loves balls! She enjoys putting the balls back into the top probably more than getting them out (one way or another!)

My child loved the toy, its very fun and packs high intensity for a young child. You put the balls into the tumbler and start pumping the handle. This calls the balls to spin in the toy container, eventually shooting out of the opening of the toy. Kids love simply love it. My child actually enjoys me pumping the toy and she tries to catch the ball when they shoot out. One time, when I wasn't looking she put a bunch of other toys, and crackers in the tumbler and start mashing everything up. It was cute but messy.

I bought this for my 10 month old son....he LOVES it! He will sit there for long periods of time. He will keep pushing down on the toy so he can hear the noise and watch the balls fly out. Highly recommend!!

When I first showed this toy to my 4ish month old I spun the balls too fast and he was scared. At 5 months, I didn't touch it and put the toy in front of him and he began pushing down on it immediately! He Loves this toy very much. He loves to push down on the top to make it spin, he loves playing with the colorful balls and loves dragging it around him. I am sure this toy will grow with my son as he learns to take the balls in and out and open and close the doors. This is the one toy I can put in front of him throughout the day and he won't refuse to play with it. It is also extremely durable. It is educational in that you can teach colors and cause and effect.
