Happy Tuesday, friends! Are you looking for a GREAT gift for someone who is having a baby or a birthday gift for a small baby? Look no further! This toy by Bright Starts is so much fun! It’s called “Having a Ball, Get Rolling Activity Table”! Come check it out!
I bought this fun toy, Bright Starts Having a Ball Get Rolling Activity Table for our sweet grandson months ago. He was really too young for it when I bought it, but I knew he would grow into it. He is now 13 ½ months old and it’s absolutely his favorite toy at our house!
The table is very educational and teaches shapes and colors and has 4 different language settings. (English, French, Spanish and German) It has a fun ball ramp that dumps the balls into a hole in the middle of the table and it counts as the baby drops the balls into the hole. Each time the ball comes out in a different hole and is caught by a little ring at the foot of each leg of the table. The baby can stand up at the table and practice balancing skills as well as dexterity by leaning over, picking up the ball and dropping it back into the hole.
If you spin the gears, it sings the ABC song, which our grandson loves! When the song starts, he starts dancing. So cute! The table grows with the child too! When we first bought the table we left the legs off so our grandson could sit and push the buttons and play with the balls like this little one is doing.
But when our grandson started pulling up, we attached the legs to encourage him to stand and balance. I often put one end of the table against the ottoman so it doesn’t move or slip while he’s playing, but sometimes he likes to push it and use it as a walker!. Our grandson loves the colorful balls, and the spinning elephant, and toy book. Now he’s able to pick up the balls and put them into the hole and claps when he does it! And it’s the perfect height for our little guy!
The Activity Table retails for about $39 at most places, but if you buy it from Bed, Bath & Beyond, you can use a 20% off coupon and get it for about $31. It’s also available at most toy stores, online and big box stores. It takes 3 AA batteries which are not included. The batteries are housed in a baby-proof compartment accessible only with a screw driver so it’s very safe. The toy also features an automatic cut-off so that after a short period of inactivity, it goes into battery conservation mode. We’ve had the toy for about 9 months and haven’t changed the batteries once! Another nice feature is you can adjust the volume, so it’s not too loud. Always a bonus!
This toy is great for boys and girls alike, making it a great gift or purchase. It gets nearly 5 stars from consumers and I certainly give it 5 stars! This is definitely a keeper, which is why I recommend it so highly!
Thanks for stopping by today! Let me know if you purchase this for someone and how they like it! Have a great day! xoxo Dell
