There are a few problems with it, though, causing me to rate it at 3 stars.
One is that the balls don't always go into the giraffe's mouth easily -- you have to get them just right, or they stick, and little baby hands don't always get them in there just right. This is frustrating for her.
Second, when she tries to pull up to standing on it, it tips. Not all the way over, and if she was pulling from her knees, it might not be a problem, but she's pulling from a seated position, and it keeps wanting to tip, which makes me nervous.
Thirdly, the balls don't always emerge fully from the tunnel, so they "disappear." At this age, she doesn't understand that sometimes she needs to fish the balls out, so I have to get them for her.
It's an entertaining toy, but I would prefer something that doesn't require so much adult intervention/supervision.
As far as what the other reviewers said, it does take good coordination to put the balls in the mouth. My son got this for his 1st birthday and it took a day of practice to get good at putting the balls in. Smaller balls make it easier. If your child doesn't have good coordination then they may get frustrated. On the other hand it may improve their hand eye coordination.
It is really cute and plays cute music my son likes to dance to. My 3 year old is enjoying it too. Like I said it's the best ball toy we have had over the years. I have had to toss all the others out because you can not buy replacement balls for any of them, including the ball popper. But this one will last.
Update: Still love it but check out my review on the Fisher-Price Go Baby Go Sit-to-Crawl Polar Coaster
The balls are too hard to get in the mouth (there is resistance; hard for a baby). Also, he loses interest even if he does get the balls in the mouth - seems to be because the balls don't always come out the same exit. While I thought the fact that they are random would be fun, he doesn't like it. He's just now learning cause and effect so the randomness doesn't interest him; it's not repeatable.
As for a toy to use while standing, I've found it not stable enough since it tends to tip. And he has trouble pulling himself up - the handles are awkward to get to so he pulls at the ball track. Once standing he finds it awkward to reach around the base to get the balls after that.
This is one toy I wish I hadn't spent the money on. On the plus side, my dog seems to enjoy it - she's figured out how to set off the music by pressing the button on the nose with her chin.
While the name says "Sit to Stand" I wouldn't buy it for the purposes of having your child lean on it as he learns to stand. But, the good news is that a child can play with it while sitting or standing. If you want you child to learn to stand, just have him rest up against the couch.
I think that your child will enjoy this toy just as mine did.

The music doesn't play on the loud setting at all and on the lower setting, it only plays for a split second before cutting off. It doesn't play thru. Pretty disappointing. Read morePublished on April 4, 2014 by bopper329
