      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!!

      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. The Step2 Busy Ball Play Table is a fun toy all year long, both inside and outside. As an inside toy, the balls provide hours of fun as children roll the balls down the chutes, spin the balls on the center carousel, and launch the balls from the catapults. As an outside toy, adding water to the table creates a "ball water table." Kids will enjoy splashing and making a wet mess while playing with the balls and chutes in the water. The Busy Ball Play Table is also easy to use and securely built with sturdy plastic materials. If your toddler or preschooler loves balls and water, my toddler daughter and I both highly recommend the Step2 Busy Ball Play Table.
