[...] Now she is 1yr and loves pushing the buttons to play songs and also spinning the top. I didn't have any issues with it not spinning and we use it daily. I like that it doesn't 'pop' the balls each time as my daughter is more surprised or excited when it does happen. I like that there is a music mode and a learning mode and overall, my daughter enjoys playing with this. She also recently started putting the balls back in the top instead of just pulling them out. When they pop she loves to crawl after them. I have been happy with this purchase and even after having it for 6mos she is still interested in it.
I bought this for my one year old son for Christmas. It didn't really catch his attention until recently. My complaint is that the thing NEVER works! First, it rarely ever spins on its own. You have to give it a little push to make it spin after you push the plunger down. Second, it takes 3 or more times of pushing the plunger down to get the balls to pop out. Nowhere on the box did it indicate that it would take multiple tries to get the balls to pop out. I would've gotten my money back but my son stays entertained with the balls alone so I did give it a 3 star review on entertainment.
