Davin and I were sent the darling Bop & Roll from Alex Brands for the holidays! We are already a huge fan of their wooden toys that we could not wait to review this for you! The look in Davin’s eyes as we pulled it out of the box was priceless. This was one toy he was ready to get to before it was even open.
Kids for some reason like to hit things, from balls, to balloons, and hammering pegs into boards. They just love the action of making something move under their own power.
Alex toys has again made a great classic toy that is well built, it is made of solid wood and comes with three balls that allows them to hit the ball and move things down the ramp.
I love that the Bop & Roll balls are a good size for older babies and toddlers to grab and put into the holes. It makes for such a fun time for them. Little ones of this age just love to watch thingsmove and roll, they are learning with every thing that they do. It amazes me to think that things we take for granted like which way a ball rolls they just do not know yet. I can’t help but to giggle when my son tries to hit the ball as it is spinning to go in the next drop off or grabs to catch it! Each time he hits the ball to start the maze, you never know what motions he will choose to do next. It is a new game each time.
The sturdy wood and convenient ball catch at the bottom ensure baby can keep the fun rolling along, they always know where it is going to land. The predictablity of that is so important for them, they love to start from the top and watch and follow the ball go from one place to the next and finally get to the landing zone. The kids are surprised it always runs down the path and lands in the place where they can easily pick them up and do it again.
Painted brightly and built well, this is a toy that you will be able to keep and pass on to your next baby or a baby in the family. I think this would make a fabulous gift for the holidays, I am sure that kids are going to love play with this almost as much as their parents are going to love watching them play. I know that we get a kick out of this. Check out the video to see it in action with Davin!
