Ebeanstalk is a website dedicated to selecting great toys for 1 year olds and toys for 2 year olds. They have a team of moms and a team of child experts that help them pick out toys by age, so you can be sure your child gets toys that have been specifically matched to his or her age!
Once I opened the package my first thought was YES, no batteries and barely any noise. Parents know exactly what I mean. A simple concept, push the orange button and watch the balls go!
My dear Ashleigh picked up on this immediately and sat for an entire 20 minutes the first time I gave it to her.
Since receiving this toy, she plays with it almost everyday. However, she has recently started picking it up and turning it round and round in every direction to make the balls go up and down the slide. While this may seem small, this pleased me immensely because it showed me that this toy really got her wheels turning. I love to see my kids learn through play.
