How To Have A Ball: Cluck & Learn Barn Review & Giveaway

by How To Mommy on 09.08.11

I have always been a huge fan of Bright Starts toys whenever I see them at Target.

I was super excited when the good people at Bright Starts offered to send me their Having a Ball™ Cluck & Learn Barn™.

The Cluck & Learn Barn™ is for children ages 6 to 36 months and is described as “bringing animal learning and ball dropping surprise together to spark laugh out loud fun.  Toddlers can drop balls into the chicken to activate fun barnyard sounds, and to see which barn door they’ll pop out of.  Pressing the buttons teaches animal names and sounds while ball dropping fosters counting and playing all at the same time.”

You can purchase the Cluck & Learn Barn™ for $24.99 from Toys R Us.

Having a Ball™ Cluck & Learn Barn™ Review

As my girls are 9 months and 31 months, I was curious if it would actually be a toy both of them would enjoy.

Within minutes of taking the Barn out of its packaging both girls were all over it!  As a sometimes unprepared mom, I was also glad to see that two AA batteries are included so we could play with it immediately.

Little Miss R loved putting the balls in the top of the chicken, while Baby O liked the lights and sounds.  I swear, after the toy said that a sheep says “Baa” she made a noise very similar!  The Barn entertained them both for quite awhile, and they even played together!

Here’s Baby O, enjoying her new toy.

As you can see, she loved it!

B has always loved his snuggle and teeth puppy! The crinkle noise combined with soft fabric and teething ends is amazing and he loves to chew on it and hold it too. I would also love the remote…maybe it would deter him from trying to eat the real one??
