Searching For Cheap Ball Pit Balls?

You may have already purchased a ball pit only to find that the balls weren’t included. What’s a ball pit without the balls?! This is your reminder to double check that the ball pit you’re interested in actually comes with balls.

The smarTrike activity center is a whole package deal with the balls and all. We won’t sell you only half the product. In fact, since this ball pit is also a toddler trampoline, it’s in our nature to give you a bargain.

So, if you decide to try the ball pit for toddler activity center by smarTrike, you won’t have to go searching for balls to fill it with.

Keep Age and Weight Limits In Mind

Now that you’re aware of what our product can do, it’s time to really find out what’s worth knowing before you buy a ball pit. The first things you need to keep in mind are your child’s age and weight since many of these products will have restrictions.

Because our ball pit turns into a baby trampoline, we might have more weight specifications than other companies do since most ball pits rest on the floor without the chance of breaking from too much weight. For us, the weight limit on the ball pit for toddler that turns into a trampoline is 55 pounds or 25 kg.

When it comes to age restrictions, the main thing to worry about is if your child is too young for a ball pit. Our smarTrike activity center is best-suited for kids ages 10 months to 5 years which speaks volumes for how versatile and long-lasting this product is.

Check Out The Materials of the Baby Ball Pool

Before you buy a ball pit for your child, you’ll also want to check out the materials in which it is made. Is it durable? Will it be easy to clean? Is it long-lasting? These are all valid questions.

Our smarTrike ball pit for toddler activity center is made with high-quality materials, as are all of our products.

The fabric is polyester, an extremely strong and durable textile that is resistant to most chemicals, flexible and quick-drying. It’s easy to clean too, needing only a wet cloth to do the job and being UV resistant, you can still bring it outside without the risk of fading from the sun.

The metal is made of Q195 steel which has excellent results for its strength, plasticity, and welding capabilities. Plus, you’ll find that all of these materials require no assembly.

How Our Ball Pit Pool Benefits Your Kids

They’ll Be Able to Enjoy and Relax

The number one benefit we hope your tiny tike gets out of their small ball pit is that they’re having fun. At the end of the day, regardless of all the other good things, we just want your children to have an absolute blast in their new ball pit for toddler activity center.

Since there’s no right or wrong way to enjoy playing with the balls, you kid has the chance to explore all this ball pit has to offer. Some children just want to take in the colors of the balls. Others want to see what it’s like to throw and catch. Maybe two siblings just want to squirm around and experience the noise they make as the balls clash together.

From sitting and relaxing to tossing balls around, the biggest benefit of the smarTrike 3-in-1 activity center is that it is loads of fun.

Kids Learn to Share Their Mini Ball Pit During Playdates

When kids are young, it’s pretty hard to share. Grasping the concept of letting another kid play with your toy is confusing at first. It’s definitely a learning process and an important learning process at that. This is where the ball pit for toddler playdates comes in.

Teaching your child to share with their siblings or friends is a tough stage in parenting and a ball pit is a wonderful place to start. With so many balls, your kid might still feel protective but at least they have a better chance of letting go since there are plenty of balls to go around.

Once it’s understood that playing games in their ball pit with someone else is far better than playing alone, they’ll understand how much is to be gained when we cooperate and share. This skill gain will be a huge benefit of using this ball pit for toddler with other children.

Improve Motor Skills Using Our Indoor Ball Pit for Toddlers

What’s more, is that your child will also be working on their fine motor skills in a ball pit. Fine motor skills describe movements that have to do with smaller motor functions such as grabbing and holding. They involve the wrist, hand, and fingers versus gross motor skills that use larger muscle groups like arms and legs.

When sitting in a pool of balls, young kids can pick up and handle the balls to hone in on their fine motor skills which won’t yet be developed. Even catching the balls in the ball pit for toddler will be an effective test of their fine motor skills at work. Then, when they toss the balls up or to a partner, they’re using gross motor skills as well.

Safety First! - And We’re Not Just Saying That

We want you to know that we take your child’s safety when using our products very seriously. So, in order to create the best ball pit available, it was a top priority to make it safe and functional.

Keeping in mind the appropriate ball to pool ratio, we kept our ball pit model small enough that even if a little one topples over, they can get right back up without the balls taking over. Then, as the ball pit for toddler transforms into a baby trampoline, they’ll start off with the handlebar while they get used to bouncing.

Basically, we make smarTrike products that grow with your child so that they’re never taking on more than they can handle. And when it comes to peace of mind, we feel that teaching kids skills one step at a time is the best way to keep them safe.

Make Sure to Always Supervise Your Child

Even with optimal safety features, the best thing you can do to keep your kid out of harm’s way is to keep an eye on them when playing in their ball pit for toddler.

You’ll be the one to decide whether or not your kid is ready to graduate from the ball pit to the trampoline and even though the activity center works in stages, it’s important not to push your child into something they’re not ready for.

Perhaps a few test runs are necessary to give them a feel for the next level. You can always give it a go and return to a lower stage if they’re not ready.

Don’t Fill the Ball Pool Too Much! - Every Child Has a Different Capacity

It’s obvious that a one-year-old differs in size and skill level to a three-year-old. Take these differences into consideration when filling up the ball pit for toddler. It’s important not to fill the pool too deep with balls to the point where your child begins to struggle.

A good place to start is by filling the pit with balls until they reach their waist. As they grow and change, the number of balls will likely increase but overall, it’s best to start slow.

To summarize, our smarTrike Activity Center is a safe and fun way to enjoy a ball pit and a trampoline and we hope your kids have a spectacular time learning and playing.
