Twirlin' Whirlin' Entertainer

Ever see the delight in a baby’s face when he or she is surprised by something fun? They LOVE surprises. They’re instantly engaged, curious and ready to be “surprised” again…and again and again! That’s the idea behind the motorized “magic” in this entertainer. One touch from baby (or a parent) starts all sorts of fun motion—a spinning merry-go-round and ferris wheel, along with a squirrel & bunny playing pop-up hide & seek. Baby’s surprise at the motion really piques their interest—and pretty soon they learn that they’re the ones who can make it all happen! There are lots of other busy activities, too—beads to bat and roller balls to spin, which helps develop eye-hand coordination. Dancing lights & music and so much more! Three height adjustments keep the fun going as baby keeps growing! Machine-washable seat pad. Legs remove for storage. Requires 3 D batteries. Developmental Guidelines : Use only for a child who is able to hold head upright unassisted and who is not able to walk or climb out of product. Weight Limit: 25 lbs. (11,3 kg) Height Limit: 32 in (81 cm) Magic motion • One touch from baby (or a parent) starts all sorts of fun motion, introducing cause & effect. Sights & sounds • Baby’s actions make lights, sounds & music happen to strengthen sensory skills. Busy activities • Beads to bat and roller balls to spin—that helps develop eye-hand coordination! Grows with baby • Three height adjustments keep the fun going as baby keeps growing! Sorry, due to its large size, this item cannot be gift wrapped.

Great start sad ending
November 26, 2013
"I should only be giving it one star but my son had fun with it for 6 months. I got this toy as a shower gift for my son in July of 2012. I took it out of the box and set it up at the end of November of 2012. He played with it on and off until June. He had 2 other entertainers so this one old got 1/3 of normal use. I took it out of the garage because my cousin's baby was coming over. I turned it on but the auto spin doesn't work :(. I thought that was the best feature for little one that couldn't move it on there own. The only part of the toy that still works is the music, the cat and dog turn manually and the car still moves. I'm so sad because my son liked it a lot so I was keeping it for my next little one. I think its a very expensive toy for it to only work for a year and not even make it to the second baby."

Not Our Favorite
October 26, 2013
"This isn't a bad toy but its not our favorite. We put it together and found that it wasn't as sturdy as I thought it would be. I thought the legs felt a little wobbly but it seemed to hold my daughter pretty well. It was fairly easy to assemble and it is colorful and has a lot going on as far as the toys go. My daughter seemed really overwhelmed by all the moving toys and spinning parts. My biggest complaint was that it was loud. Not music loud but the noise made by the toy components was loud."

Not working properly
June 12, 2012
"I purchased this for my 3.5 month old because I liked it in the store, and it seemed to have more "moving" features than some of the other exersaucer type entertainers. Sadly, it's not working properly. The lights don't always work, and none of the toys that are supposed to be automated are working. I hear a buzzing noise like it's trying to work, but nothing is happening. The sounds work fine, but the spinning features are not working. I've tried two sets of brand new batteries, so I know it's not the batteries. I wished I had read the reviews for this before purchasing it because I've read on other sites that other users had the same problems. I am hoping to exchange it for a working one, but it kind of makes me nervous knowing that other people have had similar problems."

Bad Buy
May 6, 2012
"I purchased this entertainer for my daughter because of the motion. That was a bad idea. The entertainer goes together very easy but wasn't very sturdy and when you attached the main peace it wouldn't turn. I had to leave that part off for the other parts to function. I had this item for less then 12 hours before returning it. The entertainer is very attractive and children would enjoy it if they make a few changes so everything works in real life and not in a test room."
