Review: Roll-a-Rounds Swirlin' Surprise Gumballs
Written on June 6, 2006 by Kevin.
The internet has worked out great for us when it comes to purchasing toys for Rylan. A few months back, I took advantage of a great deal at Amazon to pickup the Fisher-Price Roll-a-Rounds Swirlin' Surprise Gumballs. This toy is an award winner and certainly has won Rylan's heart.
The gumball unit includes 4 balls that are put into the top and after a lever is pushed, they come out the bottom. Lights and sounds (volume adjustable) also play while the ball comes rolling down. A small click knob in the middle can also be played with.
It took a while before Rylan got the hang of this toy but he really seems to enjoy it. In fact he has always enjoyed trying to eat it. We are still working with him to learn to put the balls back in the top but you can definitely see his progress. He certainly knows that by pressing the lever, sounds and lights will play and a ball will come rolling out. The clicking knob does not seem to entertain him at all unless one of us are doing it for him.
One of the best things that Rylan has seemed to find about this toy is that he can use it to stand up. I think that Rylan would certainly suggest this toy to other families. He sure can't get enough of it.
