I bought this originally for my 17-month-old grandson, but his 3-1/2 yr old brother wanted to play with it all of the time, so I bought a second one. They both love to play with the stacking cups now.

We got the set for the boys' firsth birthday. As one of the boys has an obsession with balls and tossing whatever he gets hold of, we knew he'd love the toy. The other one loves everything that has a lid on, to take it off and put it back on. This toy offers both. I've read that a customer had difficulty parting the halves, but it's a comment from two years ago. The problem must have been solved as we don't have the problem. The boys have figured out that if they bounced them with great force against the wooden floor, they'd crack open. I thought the parts would not survive for longer than a week, due to the impact, but even after three months of relentless use and bouncing, they have not had a single crack! Well done! And on the Toy Top Chart, this one is still the boys' N1.
Grandchild is 6 months, not yet sitting alone. But she picks up the cups from a high chair tray or creeps to get them. She loves to shake or bat the smiling rattle ball! My only complaint is that for future numbers learning, this set does not have the numbers highlighted in white as in these pictures. It's hard to see the numbers.

While as many have mentioned, the halves stick and are hard to take apart, they are still interesting to my baby as balls which she can roll and throw. She also enjoys stacking them. I can see this toy growing with my child as her motor skills and imagination develop. I think it is important to balance flashy, technology driven toys with those which put the onus on the child to creatively figure out what would be fun to do with simple objects. So, this is a winner in our book!
I have a daycare with my granddaughter as one of my children in care. I had purchased this toy for her when she was 6 months old. It is a great toy when it is opened and able to stack and play with the ball, etc. But opening is a joke! I have had every parent come in and try it and no one can open it. I can open it only by using my fingernails in the grooves. Not one of my daycare children, even the 8 year olds can figure it out. Anyone have any ideas? I would love to find out how to open it easily, so it can be played with more. As much as I love playing with the children, I don't want to have to open this toy all day long. Please help.
my one COMPLAINT IS that you don't get the version pictured. I intentionally made sure to order the version of this toy with white behind the numbers so you could see them.. I was mailed the version where the numbers are the same color as the plastic, and very hard to identify for learning eyes. not really a complaint, just fyi - little ones will need help clicking the pieces in place whether stacking or turning them into balls.
I purchased this toy as a gift. I liked the simplicity of it (not every toy needs to talk!) and the different ways to play with it. As another reviewer stated the best part is the smiley ball! When snapped together as balls the larger ones are almost impossible to separate. I had to pry the 3 largest ones apart with a screwdriver! I would not buy this again.
