The Cruise & Groove Ballapalooza develops cause and effect, eye-hand coordination, and gross motor skills by way of colorful balls, pulsing lights, and music.

Youngest children six months and older who are able to sit will enjoy dropping the balls on to the ramps. Crawlers can explore by crawling through the spinning gate setting off the lights and sounds, while toddlers, up on their feet can place the balls at the top of the ramps and and watch them bounce and travel down the ramps.

My youngest grandson has recently celebrated his first birthday. For the most part, the toys have been his three-year-old sister's domain, I wanted his first "big" toy to be HIS toy to share with sister. He is a studious young boy that watches everything his sister does. Being the great big sister that she is, my grand daughter enjoys teaching her brother. Now that he has finally reached that age where they do play together I decided that the Ballapallooza is something they would both enjoy. Little brother finds his sisters sense for the dramatic humorous on its own, add balls, music, and lights this toy is sure to bring plenty of giggles and laughter for the siblings.

Recommended for ages six months and older the Cruise & Groove Ballapalooza requires 3 C 1.5 V batteries and plenty of space to play.


Servin' Surprises Kitchen & Table

The "magic" tray and burner are what makes this kitchen play set special!

Whenever I visit my three-year-old grand daughter we share a good amount of time with pretend play. More often than not food and cooking are involved, be it baking a birthday cake, pouring tea, making dinner or playing restaurant. Last spring I bought her a smaller sink and microwave kitchen set, now it is time to upgrade to a more sophisticated play center.

The Servin' Surprises Kitchen & Table is a "smart" kitchen play center which sizzles, dings, speaks and plays music. The table comes complete with a stovetop burner, microwave oven, serving tray, pizza, cookies, and plates, cups, and utensils for two.

When a play food item is placed on the "magic" tray it responds with relevant phrases, such as "Who wants pizza?" Play time also promotes social development as included music and songs teach kids about cleaning up their mess in addition to learning about good manners. The "magic" burner makes cooking sounds, the oven has a light and a timer with sounds.

The versatile play center easily converts from kitchen center to play table and the center of the table provides a storage space for all of the accessories when play is finished.

Additional play sets are available for purchase with the themes of teas party, birthday party, barbecue, ice cream, and feeding baby.

Recommended for ages two years and older, the play center requires six "AA" batteries, not included.
