Recently, when I visit other parents homes, a lot of them have these ball pits and the bambino loves them. I purchased the one pictured (I will be keeping an eye out for a funkier one) today from Woolworths and was very surprised to discover that they are for age 3+!
But, I’m supervising the bambino in hers….plus every other Tom, Dick, and Harry seems to be OK with having their babies in one (supervised)…
This particular one in submarine style can actually be filled with balls or water and even before I started pumping it up (you definitely need a pump), the bambino lay across it in excitement. My back is bleepin’ hurting me though after standing up to do the pumping!
Anyway, she absolutely loves it. Diving into it, throwing herself on the balls (not included) and then tipping the balls out and laughing as she sees me trying to gather them all up….
It’s excellent value at Â£10 (I’ve heard ‘rumours’ of a pirate ship version available at Sainsbury’s for around a fiver but could find no trace of it online and I don’t live near one) and the pack of 100 balls (yes I had to pick up 100 balls from my floor) areÂ£4.99 by Chad Valley. Oh and the balls are suitable for 3+ too!
