About this item

  • Talking ball for babies and toddler
  • Says the ABCs and counts 1-10 when caught
  • Reversible fabric panels switch the illustrated artwork from ABC to 123
  • Part of Melissa & Doug K's Kids toys for babies and toddlers; encourages these skills: sensory, fine motor, gross motor, logical, linguistic, emotional, communication, self-esteem
  • Makes a great gift for babies and toddlers, ages 36 months to 2 years, for hands-on, screen-free play

Description

Toss it back and forth to hear this amazing ball say the ABCs or count to 10! Just flip a switch to select the mode you prefer, then turn the reversible fabric panels to highlight counting quantities, alphabet artwork, and bright colors and patterns. Designed to delight kids of any age, the pleasantly noisy ball is perfect for indoor tossing, catching, kicking, and rolling, helping babies, toddlers, and preschoolers develop gross motor skills as they play. The layered graphics also offer lots of detail to engage children's minds as they grow, gently introducing more advanced concepts such as odd and even numbers or vowels and consonants in a graphical way, and inviting exploration and discovery at a child's own pace. It's a wonderful way to introduce early-learning concepts in a playful, physical way that's perfect for young children! (Play tip: Listen for auditory surprises to cue more laughter along the way!) Melissa & Doug K's Kids toys nurture early childhood development in three key skill areas: physical, cognitive, and social. With interactive designs and multisensory features, K's Kids promotes constructive play and effortless learning, keeping interest high and new skills flourishing throughout the baby and toddler years!

This ball isn’t cheap in price but unfortunately it’s cheap in quality. I typically love Melissa and Doug toys but this ball is a disappointment. You can hardly hear the ball when it talks and it only talks about every 10th time it’s tossed. Unfortunately I can’t return it because it’s not in its original packaging….

This is the worst Mellisa and Doug toy we have bought

The ball is a terrible toy. The motion activated unit has to be beaten to get to work. It's electronic box is positioned so that it can't be shielded so it bangs things. Would not recommend anyone buy this toy. I would have taken it back but we picked it up on vacation for our grandson and shipping it back to the store would cost more then we paid for it. We have bought dozens of their toys before so it was a big disappointment.

Soft, so when you toss, it will not hurt them. Some of the reviews I read before said they couldn't hardly hear the ABC and 123 sound, but it is plenty loud enough.

We use the ball to play catch with numbers and letters. My nieces love it! The battery compartment is difficult to reach.

I sent this to a one year old for her birthday. She and her 2 year old sister were playing with it right away. I think it was a big hit from what their mom said.

Hex screwdriver needed plus lots of patience.

First of all the battery container is ridiculous. Do you have a teeny tiny hex screwdriver? If not don’t buy this. Ended up just tearing out the battery box and will use as just a regular ball.

Great idea, meh execution

I purchased this for my one year-old grandson who loves to pick up and throw a ball. I love that it's soft and that he can't really harm anything if he throws it indoors, and love the colors and pictures on the ball. My only complaint is, if there is a way to control the volume, I couldn't find it. The battery compartment and speaker are inside of the ball, and the whole point is that the ball talks when it is thrown. It can hardly be heard being on the inside of the ball. As the toy is for little ones, I understand the safety feature of the battery compartment/speaker being tucked away, but the fact that you can hardly hear the main feature of the ball, which is that it talks when thrown, negates the main feature of the toy. He still enjoyed throwing it, but the volume is so low, he didn't hear it talking once it left his hands.

This was a gift for my grandchild who just turned 1. I like that it was a nice bright color, soft cloth-like material. You can see the Letters for learning his ABC's, numbers etc .Unfortunately we didn't have batteries at the time which I really think he would love. This is a great idea for having fun and learning too.
