Now that my son is older...
on June 26, 2012
Update- from my last review I gave it 3 stars, but now that my son is older 20months, I give it 5 stars. He really likes it and it keeps him busy for at least 20-30 at a time. When he wakes up in the morning, that's the first toy he goes to. I have lost count of the number of times he's picked up and dropped the toy of the floor, but it still works just as it did on the first day. Actually, the toy seems to work better now.
First review- I like the idea of the product and my 11 month old son and 18 year old daughter (yes, 18 yrs old) likes to play with the toy. The problem is that the balls frequently fly off the machine and I have to scramble to get them and put them back in play. Also, once the balls are back in play and they fall through the hole at the top, I have to guide them around to the vacuum area in order for the balls to be sucked through. Lastly, when you push the lever down for the toy to start, it only plays for a few seconds and then all the fun stops again; so you have to frequently push the lever. Believe it or not, the toy is fun. It just needs some work. My son just likes to push the balls around on the floor anyway.
