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 & Spin Monkey:

            I have had this for 6 months, and really only started using it within the past month or so as my child is now able to use it to stand and place the balls in the top of the hat. The unit worked amazing for the first month, but as other reviewers have noted, the head has suddenly stopped dropping down and will not release the balls. Since my child is developing the motor skills to pick up and place the balls in by herself, this is hugely disappointing since if it works as it should, this would be a fantastic toy to help.

                    I bought this product for my 7 month old son to help him with his motor skills, and to encourage him to crawl and sit up and play with it. This toy has done just that. Within a week he was crawling!!! He motivates him because he absolutely love it!
