Bright Starts Having a Ball Hide & Spin Monkey

Delight in the sound of your little one's laughter as he or she plays with the Bright Starts Having a Ball Hide & Spin Monkey, which lets your little rascal engage in monkey business while sitting or standing and makes silly monkey sounds, plays melodies and lights up to keep your child interested and focused. Your child can develop his or her motor skills by putting the included balls into the monkey's hat or barrel and watching as they spin and roll, and control them by closing or opening the leaf gates. When your tiny tot presses the monkey's nose, the monkey ducks down into the barrel, peeking out when it's time to play again. While your little one monkeys around, he or she can practice learning shapes and colors by pressing the light-up buttons on the monkey's hat.

We got my son this for his 1st birthday. He really enjoys it and shockingly enough so do his 2 older brothers (8 &5) they open the leafs at the bottom and race to see who can get the most balls to shoot out of their slide. So this is a very cute toy. I do have a few issues with it though. First I wish the 2nd hole below the monkey also counted out the balls as they are put in and played music and had light effects. The hole in the monkey's hat is the only one that produces lights & sound and after 5 balls the monkey lowers and drops the balls out of the bottom. My son mainly uses the bottom hole and then stops and waits for it to play the lights and sounds after he puts the ball in and it never does anything, so I have to put my hand in the top hole and push the little button so it does this. He can stand and does put some in the top, but for babies who don't do well standing up on their own yet, you aren't going to get the light/sound that makes the toy so much fun! I also wish he came with a few more balls than what he does. Bottom line this is a very cute toy for the money and all 3 of my kids have found different ways to enjoy it.

We purchased this for our son when he was about 6 months old. He didn't play with it much until he was able to sit up on his own (7-8 months). Everything was fine, until he learned how to stand up. Once he learned to stand up, he would have to hang onto the top of the monkey's head for support while he put the balls in. The toy isn't made very well, because from that alone, it messed up the mechanism inside that makes the monkey go up and down. It hasn't completely broken yet, but it makes a really loud and annoying clicking sound every time the monkey moves. My son just turned a year old at the end of February and my husband and I are contemplating just throwing the toy away because it has become irritating to hear that sound every time our son plays with it. I have no idea how the toy would last for children any older, as it couldn't even withstand being used by an infant for 6 months. Also, the blue feet/ramps the balls roll down come off way too easily.

Comments about Kids II 1001174 Bright Starts Having a Ball! Hide 'n Spin Monkey:

Overall to me this product is very disappointing. The first one we assembled and it was defective so we took it back to babies r us, they were kind enough to exchange it for us. The second one we put together and it made a clicking noise when the monkey would come back up. It was annoying but bearable so we kept it. At first my son was terrified of the toy but as he started warming up to it and playing with it more the noise got worse and worse until now to my sons disappointment we have had to turn it off all together. I don't blame toys/babies r us for this product being defective (they are always helpful with defective products) but I'd like to warn other parents to save your money and go for a better toy.

        My 6 month old loves the lights, noise and action of this toy! I only wish the monkey went the whole way down in the barrel. It's sturdy and I look forward to our little man holding himself up to put the balls in the top of the toy!

        Comments about Kids II 1001174 Bright Starts Having a Ball! Hide 'n Spin Monkey:

        Put the toy together and dropped the balls in the hat. There they stayed. Once in a while a ball would drop out, but the spinner will not spin. Junk! Taking it back. Looking for a higher quality toy.
