Fun but not sturdy

Comments about The Little Tikes Company Little Tikes Lil' Ocean Explorers™ Stand 'n Dance Starfish™:

Our 7mo loves playing with the toy. The music, lights, ball drop and slide, all of the parts are great fun. However, it slides on the floor if she so much as grabs for a ball. We keep it against a piece of furniture to prevent the sliding. When she pulls up on it to stand the toy tips over. If they designed the base to be weightier then I think this would be perfect. It is a lot of fun, just be prepared to always have someone playing with your baby by it.

    This toy is advertised for an infant to stand up with it. This toy is easily pulled over when my grandaughter tries to pull her self up using the hand holes on top. Advertisement needs to be changed!!!

    Comments about The Little Tikes Company Little Tikes Lil' Ocean Explorers™ Stand 'n Dance Starfish™:

    This product was easy to assemble and plays lots of different songs. It makes noises and lights up. My 7 month old really enjoys it. The problem is the item does not have a stable base and moves anytime Harper tries to stand. She falls forward if I don't hold it in place. It is not a toy I can let her play with alone and walk away because of the instability. If I am with her, however, it is fun and she loves it. Just wish is was heavier and studier from the bottom up.

    Comments about The Little Tikes Company Little Tikes Lil' Ocean Explorers™ Stand 'n Dance Starfish™:

    We have tried the product on carpet and the linoleum floor. It slides around every time our LO puts any pressure on it. We put a no-slip pad under it, which seemed to help, but even though it claims to have a wide, stable base, it immediately tips over any time he tries to pull himself up or use it for balance. The colors, sounds, and balls are very fun, but overall I wish I would have spent my money on something more durable that would truly help with his development, without needing countless modifications on my part.

    Comments about The Little Tikes Company Little Tikes Lil' Ocean Explorers™ Stand 'n Dance Starfish™:

    If your child can stand, or has enough coordination to grab a ball, then the Lil' Ocean Explorers™ Stand 'n Dance Starfish™ might be a great option for you. This toy is great because it offers playtime for a child that can sit and play or stand and play! We love the bright colors, the music and watching the balls roll down just to drop them in again. The little pedals act like a keyboard, and can be played by hand or foot. Bubby is just now learning to dance and loves hearing music of all types. When the Lil' Ocean Explorers™ Stand 'n Dance Starfish™ starts playing he gets excited and just wants to go, go, go! This is one of those toys I would wait until about 9 months to offer to a child, but can be a great thing to have around for a long while to come even once baby is walking and climbing. This becomes a distraction most days for him, which is actually a huge blessing to me as I am a SAHM and usually am trying to get a blog post or 2 done throughout the day as well as the rest of my housework, and the laundry. This is also a great item to have for baby AND you to play with. You can use it to help teach coordination, and learning colors and shapes! I would recommend this for 9 months and up, for all children and parents.

    We haven't been able to fully enjoy or try this product out. Our box was missing one piece and had a duplicate of another. Our daughter was so disappointed she didn't get to play with it after we made such a big deal about it.

    Comments about The Little Tikes Company Little Tikes Lil' Ocean Explorers™ Stand 'n Dance Starfish™:

    My 2 year old loves to play with balls, any kind of ball. So he really likes this. He loves putting the ball in and watching it slide down. He has a fascination with things that light up, so that's a bonus! Little sister, who is 10 months old likes it too, but I'm afraid that if she tried to use it to pull herself up that it might topple over, taking her with it. I wish it was more sturdy. Overall, I am happy with the Stand 'n Dance Starfish, and I would recommend it to other parents with little ones.

    This product was fairly easy to put together except the screws for the battery compartment were stripped out and it took awhile to fix that. The concept of this toy is very fun but the songs get easily overplayed. This did not keep the interest of my 23 month twins, I would recommend for 12-18 months.

      We are just beginning the use of this product with my almost 8 month year old. He can sit up with supervision (not completely stable on his own yet), so we are really looking forward to growing along with the Stand and Dance Starfish in the coming months!

        We brought this toy to a play date for kids with and without disabilities, ALL of the kids enjoyed playing with it. I love how easy is it to activate and the kids loved the cause and effect features! This would be a great toy for a child working on fine and gross motor skills. The toy was easy to assemble and we put it together with "help" from a 2 yr old.
