Playskool Busy Ball Popper--More than Just a Bad Name, It's Also a Healthy Gift

The Playskool Busy Ball Popper

Playskool Busy Ball Popper  is one of the most sought-after toddler Christmas gifts this year.  Why?  Because it helps that all-important bit of greymmatter turn into something special, instead of something shaped solely by Barney the Dinosaur and Hannah Montanah.

If you care at all about your kids--let's hope that you do!--I don't have to tell you how essential the right learning environments from ages 0-5.  These are crucial years both emotionally and intellectually.  Playskool understands this.

You really need to treat your kids to the right stuff if you don't want them to turn out to be serial killers.  And while there's no guarant the Playskool Busy Ball Popper will keep your little bundle of joy from stalking prostitutes 20 years down the road, it's certainly worth a try.

Playskool is pretty much the Sesame Street of the toy industry.  It's fun, it's educational, and hipsters like the memorabilia.  No, wait…their toys are fun, educational--and parents who played with them as kids, are now buying the same brand for their own kids.  Just like Hamburger Helper ™.

The Busy Ball Popper will help stimulate your toddler's senses of touch, sight, and sound.  In addition, your child will probably try and stimiulate his or her sense of taste as with it as well.  Not only will it help them develop a near-snobbish delicacy of taste concerning the flavor of plastic, it will also develop their hand-eye coordination and motor skills
The child drops a brightly colored ball onto the track of the Playskool Busy Ball Popper then the ball pops out the top and back onto the track, then out the top over and over!  Helter Skelter! 

And while I recommend everyone play the Beatles for their children (start with Revolver), with the Buuuuuuusy Ball Bop, you don't have too.  It comes pre-loaded with eight songs, as well as other sound effects and lights that are sure to have your kids raving out by the time they're 14.

You can also buy replacement balls.

The Playskool Busy Ball Popper has supposedly won awards and received lauds (i.e. it's been lauded) from from parents, pediatricians, and child development experts. I don't know much about that.  

What I do know is that when my little Bam Bam ("Bam Bam Squirrel, according to my stepdaughter) comes around, I'll have him playing with this and eating Hamburger Helper.  Otherwise, he might turn out like Uncle Robert and...well, that's better just left unsaid.
