View Full Version : Toy recommendation -- like the learning playground where you put balls down a shoot
04-15-2006, 11:33 AM
My 9 month old son loves LOVES the leap start learning table where you put balls down a shoot.
This table is at my parent's place and I'd like a similar type of toy for our place but don't want to get the same thing. Anyone have a recommendation for a great toy where you drop something into a shoot and it comes out the bottom? Price isn't a big deal but I'd like to find something that would be fun for a while. Also as he is 9 months chokable items are a concern of course.

The busy ball popper is a great toy and usually only around $20-25. http://tinyurl.com/p6cvz

That's a really fun toy. Kaya plays with it at a play area called IWonder near us and it's actually not too annoying, considering it does make some noise (sounds like a quiet blow dryers, IIRC).

We just got the iPlay Super Spiral Play Tower from International Playthings and it is great!
The same company also makes something called the Clickety Clack Caterpillar.
DH and I just bought the Fisher Price Laugh and Learn Learning Home.
The two of us spent a good half an hour playing with it, so I can tell you it's a lot of fun :).
It includes a "rainspout" that you can drop colored balls down, shape sorter, doorbell, mailbox, light switch, window, working door, singing clock, and much more.

We've had that since my ds was 1 and he is almost 8 now and it's still around. He loved it and so did his younger sisters and every kid that comes to play!
