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.

German Amazon still has them (though it's probably not economical to have them ship to America). I've added one to my little ones wish list. It looks like something he'll enjoy. :)
