I bought this for my now 7 month old. He seems enjoy it but doesn't seem to understand all of it's fun details. I'm,sure he'll get the hang of it, though. This you has cute buttons that play different noises. It rolls on its own after receiving a slight push. I wish it rolled easier, though. Overall, I consider this a good purchase.
I ordered this ball for my youngest granddaughter who will turn one on the 23 of January. Her party is the next day. I had one of these before and it is so much fun for the kids. It moves and plays music while it teaches colors and shapes with word recognition. it has a lot of things to do on it for the child. This will be perfect for her. The expected delivery date for this to arrive was January 13, 2015 and it came on the 9th instead, just in time for the party. I was impressed with how quickly it arrived, I was very please about that. Way to go Amazon for another fast delivery. The packaging was ok too. Just a brown box with the description of the item, that's ok, she will see it anyway and not care what the box looks like. I recommend this toy for anyone who has small children. This is a great first learning toy and makes a great gift.
I purchased this as a donation for a toy drive for children and infants who are in the hospital, so I wasn't able to see it in action with an infant. Upon arrival, I opened it up and tested it out. It is a heavier toy, but it does roll around and is interactive for an infant. The only problem I see is with the volume being so easily accessible. It is harder to switch but baby hands and fingers are very strong. I ordered the frustration free packaging, which was a brown box with the details of the contents listed on it. This was my favorite toy out of the few that I ordered.
We are really enjoying this toy- I take care of my four month old granddaughter and I had no idea that she would love this so much at her age! She has learned already that if she pushes it with her foot or touches it with her hand, it will roll and light up and talk to her! Since she is not sitting up yet, she sits with me on the floor or lies on the rug with it next to her and pushes it and then gets very excited when it moves and makes noise. She gets so excited she talks back to it! It has been a fun toy to keep us entertained during the day while she is with me....
