My 11 month old got this toy for Christmas, but it's a hit with the older kids (2 1/2) in my daycare as well. They all know how to turn it on, and even after two months of play it's still a favorite and go-to toy first thing in the morning. Just because they love it so much is the reason I gave it 4 stars. I do have some things that make me dislike it a bit though! It's kind of loud. I think a lot of kid/baby toys are loud these days though. There arent' very many songs either, and I wish there were more variety. I wish it could hold more balls. It seems like we're chasing after them the majority of the time instead of watching them pop up. Sometimes the balls don't actually pop out of the tube all the way, which then kind of causes a log-jam and stops the fun temporarily. One or two of the kids has also been known to try to stick other stuff into it, successfully of course. We've never had any major issues with things getting stuck though. All that said, it's easy to use and the kids still have a lot of fun with it.
