For indoor fun, keep the basin free from water and simply let kids play with the activity table and balls. The fun never ends with the Busy Ball Play Table. Made in USA of US and imported parts.

    Comments about Step2 Busy Ball Play Table™:

    I got this table for my kids and they LOVE it! The balls are a great size for my three year olds hands. The things I do not like about it is the top cover comes off REALLY easily and my kids are constantly making me put it back on. One of the parts that flings the balls refuses to stay in the hole and comes out every 3-4 times of use.

      Comments about Step2 Busy Ball Play Table™:

      The table is very poorly made. The tower will not stay in place and the tubes come off way too easy. The table is not very sturdy and the balls are super thin plastic. It is a shame that this product is such poor quality because it would be a really cool water table if it stayed together and wasn't so flimsy.

      Comments about Step2 Busy Ball Play Table™:

      Thank you to Step2 for letting me test this item as part of the Step2 toy tester program. This is a great product that can be used indoors and outdoors by young children. The assembly was pretty quick and it was ready to use in no time. There was minimal learning curve for my 1.5 year old as he started to play with the balls and the chute indoors right after I assembled the table. Taking it outside and adding water just upped the fun factor 10x. However, perhaps because my kiddos are a bit rough, the chute was not as sturdy as I would have liked. It's not a huge deal because my 4 year old would just place it back and the fun continued. The lightweight, plastic balls were the highlight as these were sent down the chute, catapulted with force and spinned around. This is a great addition to your backyard and/or patio this Spring/Summer. For those with harsh winters, just bring it indoors and continue with the play!

      Comments about Step2 Busy Ball Play Table™:

      I am partnering with Step2 in exchange for my honest review and opinion.
      I was very excited to get a first hand opportunity to review this table for Spring! My daughter has a love for balls and water, so this was perfect for her.
      When the package arrived, it was in a smaller box than I had imagined, all I had to do was snap a few pieces together and screw the tower to make one piece. It was not overwhelming, I was able to put it together before hubby came home. Only difficult part was getting the screws in tight enough to actually hold the tower together. Indoors, my daughter plays with it without water and has a blast!Outdoors, its fun with water but we have noticed that the balls have a hard time rolling in the tower when wet and flinging from the flinger.
      I love that it is easy to fill and drain. I think it would even be fun to take the tower off and use it as a sand table! While we think this product needs alot more work in durability, my daughter still enjoys it. Thanks Step2 for allowing us to test this product!!

      does this table have a hole for an umbrella?
      Rachelcowden on May 12, 2014
      BEST ANSWER: No,But the table is easy enough to move out of a sunny area to shade when need
      Does the track part come apart easily or does it screw in so its there? Thats my big complaint with all these pieces the kids take all the pieces off and then its just a normal watertable
      A shopper on Mar 27, 2014
      BEST ANSWER: I have found that the track comes apart pretty easily but I also kind of like that I can detach it from the table for storage purposes.
      When will this be available?
      MaryI on Mar 11, 2014
      BEST ANSWER: I know you said it is expected to be available within the next month...I am just wondering if you have a date at this point? I really want to get it for my little one's birthday but that's May 14th. I want to have time to order and have it shipped!
      How big are the plastic balls that the table comes with? It says you can purchase additional balls, but they come in all different sizes.
      DeeAnn S on Jun 20, 2015
      BEST ANSWER: The plastic play balls do not come in different sizes.
      What is the height of just the table without the tower? The height shown I assume includes the tower (27.87h).
      Carol S on May 19, 2014
      BEST ANSWER: The height from the bottom of the leg to the top of the table is 16.5"
      Can you this as a sand table also?
