Playskool toys can be really fun for the kids and parents. I particularly adore their Poppin' Park series where coloured balls will pop out of the toys, keeping the baby or toddler amused and focused.
Scored the Roll 'n Pop Express during a sale. This big eye-catching red train pops ball up as it chugs along, while a random sound effect is triggered and the monkey bops up and down.
Comes with 3 coloured balls and is compatible with all toys from the same series.
I bought the Playskool Elefun which was the Toy of the Year in 2013 and I am seriously amused by it myself. Subconsciously playing with it even when the baby is not. It is fun, but may not be so for parents who dislike moving around to catch the stray balls.
The size is right for a 9-month old and above. Parents need not worry about small parts that can be potential choking hazards.
