My son received this toy at Christmas (at 8 months old) and he has played with it every day since, many times a day. It's one of the few toys that stays in our living room. He quickly figured out how to fish the balls out of the helicopter and within a couple of weeks figured out how to drop them in the top by himself, and now he has started to push the various buttons to make different sounds/music/etc. And, the cutest sight ever is seeing him pull the toy behind him with the yellow string as he crawls. Now, he does take the balls and plays with them independent and separate from the helicopter, but that doesn't mean that he's lost interest in the helicopter because he always comes back to it. Very fun for my little man!
The only con is that the length of the string makes me nervous about it wrapping around his neck. So, I simply do not let him play with this unsupervised.

I have commitment issues - yes, even with buying toys! So, we always read reviews or look to other parents for toy-advice. When we read that this won a 2008 Best Toy award from Parenting Magazine, we immediately added it to our holiday shopping list.

What a joke! I'm upset with myself for not reading more online reviews before we bought it - seems as though most other parents are as disappointed as we were. My two primary gripes are:

1) The sounds/noises are SO annoying. Even our son pushes it away when it's on! We have plenty of noisy toys that I have no problem with - this one is awful!
2) Boring. Seems cute and fun, but just isn't. With his best toys, he has an attention span of 20min or more.. this one, not even 30 sec. He takes the balls out and puts them in his other toys that take balls!

I don't think the quality is poor, or it's unsafe or anything... but it's just a let-down. I still can't believe it won an award. I can't trust that magazine anymore. If I hadn't destroyed the packaging just to get the toy out, this would have been returned.

      My daughter liked this toy a lot because she could deal it by its strong while she crawled. She also understood how you take the balls out and put them back in. 10 mins of fun since babies have a little attention span. Easy to clean!

        Very colorful toy. It holds my 9 month olds attention better than anything else he has. He pushes it around everywhere. Its a good quality material and durable. (I have a son so he definitely puts durability to the test.) Very glad that I pick this up.

              my son received this gift from a friend when he turned one. Anytime I have to buy a gift for a child turning the same age This is by far my first choice. They love to pull it by the string when they walk and love to hear the sounds, lights and music when they put the colorful balls in the top.

                    I have bought this toy three times for each one of my nephews and they always love it! There is lots for the child to play with on it. It makes several different noises, is great for hand eye coordination, and the child always has fun playing with it as they grow. I will be buying it again this Christmas for my God Son, and I highly recommend it!!!

                    I bought this for my 2.5 year old son who loves helicopters and jets. The sounds and songs are adequately entertaining and keeps his attention. The included colored balls are annoying because they are super light weight and roll all over the place. It would have been better if there was a lip to catch them somehow. I immediately got rid of them, otherwise you spend so much time chasing the balls, you miss the point of the toy. Fortunately, the toy holds it own without the balls. My son never missed the balls. This toy is somewhat heavier than expected. A really small child might have trouble holding it in the air to pretend flying. Wheels are nice for pulling it, but you expect a child to eventually simulate flying it since that is the intended purpose of a helicopter. While I appreciate multi-function, engaging toys, Vtech has a tendency to make their toys overly busy with too many functions.

                      The best toy ever! We found one in a thrift store when my son was probably 3 month old and for almost a year it's his favourite one! Even my husband learned songs, so child won't love toy more than daddy=)))) Those people, who didn't like it because of string, are probably too stupid to cut it off or make it shorter, as we did.
                      Prefare this brand of toys now, jusyt orderded scooter and thinking about one more helicopter!
