First off, get rid of the balls. They'll be lost within the first five minutes (under the couch, the bed, dresser, etc.), and you won't see them again until one hits you upside the head. Trust me, they're heavy and they hurt when thrown by a two-year-old. Once the balls are gone, you should be okay. The helicopter lights up and makes a lot of fun sounds that little kids like. My daughter slept with it in her bed for nearly a year. She'd play with it before going to sleep and when she woke up. If it weren't for the balls, this toy would have 5 stars.
