Rainbow Ball Run
Drop, look, and listen! This colorful ball run offers visual and auditory fun for toddlers with a set of towers that make a musical plink-plunk sound as the ball bounces along. Two wood balls are included, and the tower path can be reshaped to change the rhythm of the bounce.
Why it’s awesome
The ball’s plink-plunk connects sound with movement.
Play the rainbow

From the desk of the product designer:
Behind the design
“Our early designs were pretty complex. But after watching kid-testers actually play with our prototypes, we realized that sometimes simpler is better. So we pared back our design and focused on the important stuff that we knew kids would love best: sound, color, and ball-bouncing motion! ”
