Toys that span the 3 and 1 age group

You know what I love?  Toys that make both of my girls giggle and it just so happens that the toy that Bright Starts™ sent over for a review is one of those toys! I was so giddy when we were picked for Bright Starts™ toys because they all looked like something my girls would love.  Even more awesome was getting chosen to test out the Jungle Fun Ball Climber™–something I knew the girls would have a blast with.  You see, Tay and Peanut both have a teeny tiny obsession with toys that shoot balls into the air.  Something about the pop and all the excitement of it all that gets them going like no other. This time we invited our friends to come over for a Friday play date and check out the new toy that I kept hidden away for 4 days (p.s.- not easy).  The girls couldn’t even wait for me to go get some scissors before they tore into the box.


The kids eagerly turned it on (Peanut, really) and waited patiently (to my surprise) as the balls made their way up the little climber and rolled down the slide. That lasted one turn and then it was a free for all.

And to no surprise, within 10 minutes Hunter figured out that there was a little hook at the top that rolled the balls down the slide. See that look in his eyes?  That’s mischief. 2014-08-01 bright start-005.jpg 2014-08-01 bright start-006.jpg 2014-08-01 bright start-007.jpg 2014-08-01 bright start-008.jpg 2014-08-01 bright start-009.jpg 2014-08-01 bright start-011.jpg

On the plus side, the toy doesn’t break that easily.  That, friends, we tested. Thoroughly, I might add. 2014-08-01 bright start-010.jpg 2014-08-01 bright start-012.jpg 2014-08-01 bright start-018.jpg 2014-08-01 bright start-019.jpg  

And since the play date, we’ve actually kept the ball climber in the living room, where only a handful of toys go.  The girls love pulling it out and letting the balls go flying. Now, the fun part.
