ToyQuest.com is home of the “the world’s best toys”! In addition to a huge assortment of super fun outdoor toys and games, ToyQuest.com has a number of toys and activity centers that are perfect for indoor play – just in time for holiday shopping!
Our mission is to provide children of all ages with safe, innovative, quality toys that encourage creativity and imagination. … We strive to stimulate, fascinate and enlighten.
ToyQuest.com offers its own brand of toys, including Banzai, Minimoto and Cliq, and also a number of licensed brand toys featuring Sesame Street, NFL and Monsters vs. Aliens (to name just a few). We received the Sesame Street Activity Center – a blow up ball pit featuring Big Bird, Elmo, Bert and Ernie. When I opened the Activity Center to put it together I was initially surprised to find no pump or anything included to help blow it up. It was actually much easier to blow up than I expected, though, so it wasn’t a problem.
The Sesame Street Activity Center comes with 25 soft touch plastic balls to fill the center area with balls. There is a tall blow up backdrop with a “hoop” of sorts and a hole for dunking and throwing the balls. Big Bird flanks peek a boo curtain doors that my kids have loved.
Intended for children over the age of 2, both of my little ones have really enjoyed the Activity Center – Baby Girl perhaps more than Toddler Boy, actually. They can both fit in the pit area easily, and have played in it with 2 friends, but it is a tight squeeze. It’s really the ideal size for my two kids because it can fit inside the house without taking over and is easy to move around. The Activity Center is also suitable for outdoor play and it’s withstood our tough half-dead Florida grass quite well.
I think this is a great and affordable wow-factor gift. Imagine the joy a little one’s face to find it blown up sitting near the tree on Christmas morning. But, if you want to make it a true “ball pit” you’ll need more than 25 balls. The 25 included don’t cover the bottom of the Activity Center but my kids don’t really seem to notice that. (You can purchase a coordinating bag of 100 balls at Wal-Mart for only $9.99.)
To Buy… With literally hundreds of toys to pick from, Toyquest.com definitely has something for everyone. The Sesame Street Activity Center is a great alternative to an oversized ball pit or toy house. It’s perfect for a play room and is a great price for the fun.
Or Not to Buy… The Activity Center could use more than 25 balls to really achieve ball pit status.
Shop! Check out ToyQuest.com for great toys for the holidays, including Sesame Street toys, Cliq toys and Banzai! The Sesame Street Activity Center is $39.99 and can be purchased at numerous retailers nationwide and online, including Amazon.com.
