Hasbro Playskool Busy Ball Popper Toys Review

4.0 out of 5 stars Won't Teach Much, but it is a Lot of Fun, December 29, 2003By D. R. Jeanclerc "Reader, Listener & Obsessive... (Brunswick, OH USA) Durability:4.0 out of 5 stars Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars Educational:2.0 out of 5 stars
The Busy Ball Popper is something of a rarity in today's toy market - it's unapologetic fun that makes very little attempt to teach anything at all. As long as you understand what you're getting, then it's great.

Our son gets a kick out of watching the balls loop through the machine and into the air; he gets an even bigger kick when the balls bounce wrong and rebound throughout the room. It's a mini-workout chasing after them, but it's worth it to see him enjoy it so.
I agree with other reviews that the unit could be easily tipped over, but the last time I checked, the easy solution to this problem is to supervise your child. Trust me - you'll have as much fun as he/she does watching the Ball Popper at work. But again, this isn't suitable for any pull-up or lean-on activity.

The fan motor that propels the balls is about as loud as a hair dryer on a low setting. However, the music snippets make up for the white noise as they're better than most toys. The balls themselves are very lightweight in order to allow them to travel; as a result, they are likely too fragile for play beyond the Ball Popper.

Again, the Busy Ball Popper is a lot of fun and does what it's intended to do very well. It's not educational (get something LeapFrog) and it's not a pull-up toy and it's not trying to be either. If you go in understanding what you're getting, you won't be disappointed.
