Not as fun (or as large) as I thought they would be
By Mommy librarian
I've had my eye on these for my son for quite a while. He recently started enjoying knocking towers down, so I went ahead and purchased them. Guess I should have looked at the dimensions before ordering because I was surprised at how small they were. The tower with all 6 balls and the base is really about a foot/foot-and-a-half tall. Pretty disappointing. My son could really take them or leave them as of right now. When I build a tower for him with them he will knock them down, but he hasn't attempted to build a tower by himself. Perhaps once he is able to figure out how to do that, he'll enjoy them more, but for now they just sit unused in the toy boy.

Tobbles are for everyone.
By Amelia Gremelspacher
My grandchildren opened this last night at a Chanukah party. The 7 month old and the three year old were both entranced. The individual components are weighted so they can stack the balls in all kinds of leaning confections. The adults gathered around and played with the toddler to see how much off balance would still work. He then balanced it with different sizes on the bottom. The seven month old put the items in his mouth and tottered them around. He liked them because they are approximately balls but do not roll off so quickly so he can explore different properties, and tastes. The components got a hard handling given the adult participation and I didnt see any scratching or chipping. The toy itself is bright and attractive. I always like a toy that is fun for the parents too, and this fulfills this wish beautifully and colorfully.

Great for baby...and parents too!
By petite mommy
Received the toy on time, and it was in perfect condition! My 11 3/4 month-old loves knocking it down and watching the "balls" spin around. She tries to teeth on them (cutting molars right now) but haven't had any problems, since they're round, and she can't get a good bite on the side that has the indentation. Husband likes to stack them for her -- I like that it almost looks like an art piece, and not just a baby toy. Seems pretty durable. I think that this will be one of those toys that stick around for a long time...oh, and I know that it says it's for "3+" but if you watch your baby play with them, it's safe.
Update: My 17-month-old is still playing with these! She's no longer trying to teeth on them, but they do make a terrific racket when she clatters them onto the hardwood floor. Still, no scratches on the toy or our floors, so everyone wins.
