2-year old loves it!
Great fun, here are pros and cons:
-- bigger than it looks, can comfortably hold 3 toddlers.
-- balls are sturdy, bright, colorful, lightweight.
-- cage opens and folds close very easily, not a hassle to put away between uses.
-- kids can see through and parents can see in.
-- packaged very well. The cage folds down and stores in it's own little slip case, and the balls come in two 200-ball size net containers, square shape that stack quite nicely. everything fits right back into the box it came in for storing. Inner box was shipped inside of a larger box, which was very much appreciated because it kept the inner box in excellent condition.
-- 2 year old loves it.
-- height could be a little higher, toddlers want to hang on edge and that pulls it down. it seems like the sight level of the top prevents toddlers from seeing parents sitting down on standard size furniture. our 2 year old's head, standing up, was just above the top of the cage.
-- The fun of throwing the balls over the sides would be diminished if the sides were higher, or the inside fabric edging at the top was wider, or there was a cone top of some kind.
-- The flap door only has one piece of inadequate Velcro. we added 4 more pieces of double tape Velcro, two on the sides and two at the bottom corners. Otherwise, balls escape and toddlers want to go in and out too much, which also lets the balls escape.
-- Best for toddlers, probably under 3 years old. Older children will feel confined, won't fit well, and will probably use it from outside, which means the balls will be scattered all over.

Balls gone wild.
I like the concept of a private ball pit because my child is too small to be in one at lets say chucks cheese or some. The tent is big. Even I can get in which is what I had to do to convince my 1year old it was safe. I beleive there are 400 balls although I have not counted them it does not seem like it though. The tent is very light so if you have it outside like we do then make sure to put the balls in or it will blow away. The tent is some what flimsy and that is the reason for 4stars. It has caved in on my son once or twice. Overall, I like it and now he does too. I hope it holds up long enough for the next child.

This ball kit comes with 2 packages of 200 each balls for this ball pit. the outside labeling on the box is misleading. My twin grandsons are really enjoying it and they both can be in the pit at the same time with ease. the one thing I have noticed is that the entrance door to the ball pit doesn't close well enough, allowing some balls to escape the pit during play. The pit is sturdy. It bends if the kids fall on it. The balls are soft plastic. If they deflate (my grandson bit one) you can blow in the hole of the ball and it will re-inflate.

Excellent product and customer service!
I ordered this for my daughter for her first birthday, and it was the best thing we ever could have bought! I didn't get all the balls in my original shipment, but I emailed customer service and they had them right out to me! We have even left the balls out a few times and put a blanket in with her stuffed animals for quiet time, and she loved that just as much! It's started coming apart at the seams a little, but nothing a little stitching up can't fix!

Great for one year old
This was great - it is quite large for a one year old. I can easily sit inside with my child. With the amount of balls you receive, the entire floor is covered. About half the pit has a second layer of balls. When you move around, it seems like the pit is very full. Such a fun toy! It packs up very into a surprisingly small case.

Did not receive item as described. Only received bag ...
Did not receive item as described. Only received bag of 200 balls. Also, when counted, it wasn't 200 in that bag.

Do not order this- poor quality
This product was not as described. balls easily crush when handled and only 200 balls came with order instead of 400 as in description. Would not advise to order.

I LOVE this ball pit. I've had it for several months now and my 11 month old really enjoys playing in it. I ended up buying 200 extra balls just because my son is always throwing them out of the pit.

This is a really nice ball pit and larger than most ball pits online
This is a really nice ball pit and larger than most ball pits online. Definitely needed the 400 balls to cover the bottom adequately. When not in use, it easily folds almost flat and stores in the case included. My 2 yr. old granddaughter loves it, and it can fit 3-4 toddlers in it at one time.

Love it, and the previous review is right - ...
Love it, and the previous review is right - 1 bag of balls (like the picture shows) is not 400 balls, we counted. It is only 200 balls. We contacted the seller right away and they were prompt and shipped us out another bag. I bought 2 sets, one for each of my grandkids, and so far I have only had my grandson (xmas is still a month away) play in his when he is at our house (he is 10 months old - he won't tell his parents lol) and he loved it completely. The balls are the perfect size.
