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! ”

I purchased the ball run for my one year old grandson and he was absolutely delighted. We have him on video laughing hysterically every time the ball dropped. This is one of the best presents I ever purchased for a child.
This ball run is so colorful and fun! My son loves it. My only complaint is that the colored wrapping on one of the tubes came bubbled up/warped. But otherwise a really great product.
My kids ages 2.5 years and 9 months love this toy, it is definitely one of the most reached for toys. I love everything it has to offer learning wise. I was a little disappointed that the wrapping around some of the tubes isn’t smooth and has creases or air bubbles under it. Even with that this toy is definitely one I’d recommend for littles.
