Imagination Generation Review

Play and creativity is such an important part of childhood. Of course every parent should teach their child as much as possible too.  Some of my best memories growing up include playing dress-up with friends, or spending time outside with them.  The best part about children is that they can create their own fun with few resources. Having an active imagination will always provide a child with nonstop entertainment.

Imagination Generation is every child's dream come true.  This company manufactures toys and blocks, playsets, ball pits, and so much more.  There's truly something for every child's interest.  The ballpit is the company's best selling item and it's easy to see why.  Every child loves a ballpit, I know I did when I was a kid.  Any toy or item from Imagination Generation would make the perfect birthday or Christmas present for a lucky boy or girl.  

Scarlett has recently started going to a special baby gym class at our local play gym. There's a ballpit there which she absolutely loves! Anytime I put her in it, she's all smiles and coos. I just love to see her so happy.  Since we only have one class a week, she has to wait to have fun in the ballpit until Friday's.  I didn't think it was an option to bring the ballpit to us, but Imagination Generation has made that possible! 

The ballpit recently came in the mail and included 200 brightly colored balls that have their own storage bag.  What more could you want out of life than beautifully colored balls to play around in?

Dogs love ballpits too! 

The ballpit arrived when my daughter was napping, so my dog Carolyn and I set it up in our playroom without her.  There's virtually no installation at all.  When you take the ballpit out of the bag, it instantly opens up like a large pop-up hamper.  Simply unzip the balls from the storage bag and throw them inside the pit.  In minutes, your vision will be taken over by pretty brightly colored balls!

Lynnie was very excited to test out the pit for herself.  She was a little hesitant at first to go in, but when I went inside she followed suit.  She's a mom's girl and always wants to be where her mom is. You enter through the yellow flap that's in the front of the pit.  The surface area of the pit is very large.  It's large enough for I'd say 3 or 4 small children at once to be in there.  The walls are all breathable mesh and the top is completely open, so you don't have to worry about anyone not being able to breathe well.

Once Scarlett was up from her nap, the true fun began.  Lynnie and I got in there with her and had so much fun! I put Scarlett on her tummy and she had fun looking at the balls, smiling, and cooing.  Since she's only 15 weeks old, she can't play like a big kid can in the ballpit.  Soon enough she will be able to though! I think she enjoyed all of the colors and the balls around her.  The pit comes with 200 which might seem like a lot, but it's not if you have a larger child.  200 is okay for Scarlett right now since she's so young, but eventually I'll have to buy more since the provided balls don't even completely cover the pit floor.

I can't even imagine how much fun Scarlett will have in here with her friends when she's a little bit older.  I like that it's large enough that I can go inside and make sure she's safe.  The balls are pliable and soft, so if your child likes to play rough and throw balls they won't hurt other children.  

The ballpit and balls have a storage case to put them in when not in use.  I think I'll always have the ballpit open and set up in our playroom though.  It seems like too much effort to constantly put the set away when I know Scarlett will be playing in there everyday.  The ballpit is slightly large, but not large enough to take up a whole room.  It certainly would be great to have for your child's next birthday party or sleepover though!

If you're looking to bring some entertainment to your playroom and light up your child's face, Imagination Generation is waiting to send a ballpit your way!
