Playskool Poppin' Park Busy Ball Popper £12.74 @ Argos
This is the sort of game I would have put on my Christmas list as a little girl; I love things that pop up or out - I played Elefun with my youngest the other day - you have to catch the paper butterflies as they are blown out the top of the elephant's trunk - and I'm not sure who had more fun, him or me!
It's suitable for little tots aged 9 months and over, so the concept is very simple - you pop the ball in one end and it gets popped out the other!
There are five balls and the ubiquitous flashing lights and melodies to accompany the aforementioned ball popping; you're going to need four 'D' batteries (they're the little square ones I think...but don't quote me on that, I'm just guessing) and they're NOT included.
By all accounts, toddlers love it...
"My son absolutely loves this toy. It's one of the few toys that he properly plays with and it keeps him entertained for ages. It's lots of fun to play this with other toddlers too. One flaw is that you cannot switch off the music so when it's on it's a noisy business! But it's lots of fun. Highly recommend, toddlers just love it!"
Perhaps consider buying some earplugs too!
