Does anybody recognize this ball spin top toy?
« on: August 25, 2014, 08:03:32 PM »
I went to an event the other night, and the hostess had a little toy that my daughter *adored*.  It was something like this: http://smile.amazon.com/Infantino-150-3025-Spiral-Spin-Top/dp/B004F8TFS6/ref=sr_1_18?s=toys-and-games&ie=UTF8&qid=1409011264&sr=1-18&keywords=spin+top except that the side of the clear plastic could open up (it slid to one side) so that you could take a ball out, and it had a circular opening at the top so that you could drop the ball down in.  I *thought* the brand was Playskool (I tried to look, so that I could look up the toy later), but I don't seem to be having any luck finding it.  Anybody recognize the toy or particularly good at finding such things?

Tomy has something similar - I will try and find a link soon. I am posting from my phone with a sick baby on my knee. Makes posting a little difficult!

Otterwoman-my grandson has that one.  He loves it.  Goes through batteries like crazy.

Yes, that's it, Tjika!  Unfortunately it doesn't seem to be available anywhere.  :(

Otterwoman, we own that busy ball popper.  It is awesome.  :)

You are only young once. After that you have to think up some other excuse.

contact Playskool directly - I did that when I couldn't find toys we wanted for our kids (not with Playskool, I think, but other companies).  Usually, they want you to buy their products so they can help you find a source to buy one.

The giraffe is definitely cute.  I do have a spin top toy, though, but I think the appeal of the one I saw was that you could take the balls out and put them in, which is thrilling to a 1-year-old.  I'd be half tempted to see if I could buy it off the woman who was having the party, except that she's having a baby this month, so she might want it for her new baby.  I'll have to try calling Playskool or just keeping an eye on craigslist and the like.
