the ball popper, part 2 (or, how to get it right)

ok, so a few of you may remember this post about the busy ball popper. well, a year and a few months later, at a playdate, we found emmi in love with playing with her friend's ball popper. now, having seemingly scarred her for life the first time she saw one of these things, we were more than a little surprised. so we decided to resurrect her own ball popper from the island of misfit toys, and lo and be-effin'-hold...

i guess it's just one of those things you learn as you get older: if at first you don't succeed, try the popper again.


  1. TOO CUTE!! I love the "One, two, three........GO!" I love watching kids explore a toy for the first (or second) time. I used to be a preschool teacher and it was always interesting to see that toys the children wouldn't even TOUCH at the beginning of the year, were their favorites by the end and you have to pry them from their hands with a crowbar lol. All a part of their learning and growing for sure. And hey, at least it wasn't money wasted like the sippy cups :-)

    (I found out about your site on btw)
