I couldn't resist buying this for my daughter since it looked just like a gumball machine! The Fisher-Price Roll-a-Rounds have proven to be much fun and this is no exception. Four Roll-a-Rounds come with the Swirlin' Surprise Gumballs: teddy bear, diamond ring, lollipop, and a wrapped candy. You put the balls in the top of the gumball machine, push down on the lever handle, and it lights up and plays a tune as they roll out. It is fairly easy for a young child to learn how to press down on the lever handle. My only negative about this is that the opening is large enough for a hand to go in and get temporarily stuck - nothing serious, but something to watch for. The recommended age is 6-36 months and it requires 3 AAA batteries which we have never had to change. The Swirlin' Surprise Gumballs is colorful and lots of fun!
