[...] This is a terrific product however, parental supervision should be there until your child is well and truly stable on their feet. It is wood, it is a cube, it does have corners and things that stick out. You don't want your child to fall on or against it.
As my daughter got older (she was 17 months at the time of this review), she started to use more features of the product. At 10/11 months, she would hit the wooden discs so they come wobbling down. She lacked the coordination to work them back to the top in their tracks. At 17 months, she can do that now.
Next was winding the beads along the metal rails. I also used to flick the beads to make them spin. She found this very entertaining. At 17 months, she can make them spin herself. Opening and closing the 4 doors on the side came next. She paid very little attention to the alphabet pieces. At 17 months, she knows the animals behind each of the 4 doors and can also identify half of the animals used for the letters of the alphabet. I am particularly thrilled about that! We play together and I ask her to show me the animals that start with various letters and she points them out. She has only just started playing with the last side of the cube - the rollers that show the 3 different animals you can mix and match. I highly recommend this product for its durability and longevity. Best price is definitely at Target and for what you get for that price, its worth every penny! Bravo to B Toys for such a fun product.
I purchase B toys first before anything else comes in my home. I have written many reviews on B products because I not only buy them for my children but they're the only brand for gifts that I buy for young children. My son is 1 and he loves it. I have not had any problems as listed below in other reviews. I think either I am lucky or B toys has fixed the issue. I also will say the four gifts that were given didn't have any problems either. This brand is a wonderful brand and worth the ticket price!
I purchased this for my LO and she's had it for about 2 months now with no breaking! Seems we're lucky compared to the other reviews. She loves the noise it makes, I'm hoping it lasts until she's done with it and I won't have to make a trip to replace it!
This is a really cute toy. I bought this as a gift for a one year old but am disappointed. I had this in my house for one day and I tried it out and everything but the spinny deal in the bottom to make the balls move got disconnected from the top where you push down so now it will not spin and I can't fix it. I will return it and try to get another one tomorrow.Hopefully it will last longer.
