Fisher Price Ballapalooza Review

Look at this contraption!! Bear got this for his 1st birthday and its huge!

Glad we packed away the Jumperoo to make some room.

Putting it together
This took Daddy nearly an hour to assemble. The tools that came with it didnt really do the job so make sure you have more screwdrivers etc handy.

It’s surprisingly sturdy! Bear (And Dude) can pull up on it and climb it and it doesnt move or topple over. It’s a heavy toy and very well made for those overzealous toddlers.

The music that plays is very different to any other baby toy I’ve come across. It’s more disco than lullaby but Bear loves dancing to the tune. Alongside this, the main tube down the middle flashes different colour lights, turn off the lights at nights and you feel you are in some kind of toddler discotheque!

Playing with the toy
There are 8 balls that come with it to roll down the 3 different runs. An inflatable sphere with a ball inside (which Dude uses like a boxing ball) and Bear’s favourite the green ‘door’ to swing back and forwards.

It’s a lovely colourful toy with lots of stimulation for toddlers. The children play with it every day but it is not a toy that keeps their attention for very long. It’s a heavy toy and takes up a bit of space. The only change I would make is the choice of folding it away for storage when not in use.

1 year old toy favourites!


Bear is one at the end of the month! *cry* I will do a post on what we have got for his birthday soon but for now here are some favourites of his!

1. Vtech play and learn activity table

Now that bear can pull himself up and loves to stand this is great and he will spend ages stood playing with the different toys on this.

2. Fisher price Lion walker

Again this is great as it enables bear to be upright and he loves to show off and walk across the room with this. Love how bright it is and is very noisy and interactive.

3. Henry Hoover 

If like me you have a child obsessed with the Hoover, then this is brilliant. Bear would follow me around with my hetty Hoover but would mess around with the electric cable. Now he has his own he can Hoover to his heart content and the cable is safe to play with.

4. Vtech pop and play elephant

This toy pops out balls which bear loves to chase around. On many occasion I have found him giggling away at this toy!

5. Little tikes cosy coupe 

Technically this is his brothers toy but bear has taken a like to it and can actually get in and out by himself. He loves being pushed around by his older brother and will happily sit in this watching the world go by!
