At TimetoPlayMag.com, we want to engage, inform and entertain our readers to give them the benefit of our knowledge, experience and the breadth of products we cover. We look at more than 10,000 new toys and children’s products every year, and our primary purpose is to help you make the best choices for the kids in your life.
Our goal is to give you the real story on what you’ll find when you bring a toy home. And we know that every kid and every family is different. That’s why we always say: “The hot toy is only hot if it’s hot for your child.”
Our editorial team has more than 100 years combined experience working in the toy industry. Our rating system ranks toys on 4 key criteria:
- Fun — Does it engage the child? Does it inspire imaginative play? Does it contribute to creative expression? Is it entertaining?
- Repeat Play OR Collectibility — Some toys are played with, some are collected. If we feel a toy is better suited for collectibility, we’ll rank it based on Collectibility instead of Repeat Play.
- Repeat Play — Will kids come back to it over time? Does the toy allow diverse imaginative play experiences? Does it provide longer-term play value?
- Collectibility — Some toys may have limited traditional play, but kids will treasure them as collectibles.
- Assembly/Instructions — Is the toy easy to assemble? Are the instructions clear?
Over the years we’ve learned a lot about what makes great toys and exciting play experiences. We want to help you create the best experiences for your kids and your family.
Ultimately, you’re the best judge of what you want to bring into your home — and what’s best for your kids. And because you’re an important part of the Time to Play family, we invite you to let us know if you ever find an error or have any ideas how we can better help you. After all, we exist for one reason: to help you have more fun!
What It Is
Hasbro's Poppin' Park toys feature unpredictable ball popping and animals that encourage kids to explore through ball play. With the Fill 'n Spill Hippo, kids drop colorful balls into the hippo and give the hippo a spin to start the action. The hippo rolls across the floor, bobs back and forth, and plays music and fun sounds as the balls spill from the hippo's mouth. Kids chase the balls and place them back in the toy to keep the action going. The Fill 'n Spill Hippo comes with three colorful balls that can be used with any other Poppin' Park toy and a music on/off switch.
Why It’s Fun
The music, sounds, and fun motion of the Fill 'n Spill Hippo will keep babies engaged as they play both visually and physically. The Fill 'n Spill Hippo gets babies moving as the toy rolls across the floor, encouraging babies to crawl and chase after it. Through picking up and placing the balls inside the hippo, babies develop hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills. This toy also introduces babies to cause and effect, as babies tip the hippo and see the balls spill out.
Who It’s For
The Fill 'n Spill Hippo is for ages 6 months and up.
What to Be Aware of
Two AA batteries are included, but these are for in-store try-me purposes. Hasbro recommends replacing them with fresh batteries before you play.
