A Ball Pit That Transforms into a Mini Trampoline
When you purchase smarTrike's ball pit for toddlers, not only will you have bought your baby’s first ball pit, but also your baby’s first trampoline, all at the same time, in one package.
In true smarTrike fashion, our ball pit is a 3-in-1 activity center that grows with your child. Starting as a ball pit, it evolves into a two-stage trampoline that includes a removable safety bar. Its innovative design and versatility make it the number one choice for parents who want to ensure their kids’ unlimited fun and safety during playtime.
With smarTrike's ball pit, you'll save money because, instead of throwing out a ball pit that your kid will outgrow quickly, it will transform into an entirely different toy for your child to experience. Consider it a big bonus for buying the ball pit that your child wanted.
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?!
Remember to double-check that the ball pit you’re interested in comes with balls, so you won’t have to spend extra time and money looking for balls to fill it with.
The smarTrike activity center is a complete package that includes 100 colorful balls, a foldable ball-pool-cum-trampoline, a detachable safety handlebar, and a simple guide. And you will be getting everything at a bargain price.
Keep Age and Weight Limits In Mind
Two things you need to consider before buying a ball pit are your child’s age and weight. We have more weight specifications than many other companies because our ball pit turns into a baby trampoline. The weight limit on the SmarTrike activity center is 55 pounds (25 kg).
On age restrictions, our product is not only versatile but also long-lasting. It is perfect for children aged 10-months up to 5 years.
Check Out The Materials of the Baby Ball Pool
Before buying a ball pit for your child, you’ll want to check out the materials it is made from. Is it durable? Will it be easy to clean? How long can it last? These are all valid questions you should find answers to before making a buying decision.
Our SmarTrike ball pit for toddlers (aka 3-in-1 activity center) is made with high-quality materials, as are all of our products.
The baby ball pool is made with polyester, a durable and flexible textile with excellent chemical resistance. It’s easy to clean—with a wet cloth and no soap—and quick-drying too. And it is UV resistant, so you can take it outside without the risk of fading from prolonged sun exposure.
The balls are made from BPA-free plastic and are crush-resistant. And the metal of the detachable handlebar is made of Q195 steel, which has excellent results for its strength, plasticity, and welding capabilities.
Note: All the different components of the 3-in-1 activity center do not require assembling.
How Our Ball Pit Pool Benefits Your Kids
Don’t assume that a ball pit for toddlers is just a silly toy with no actual benefits. While it guarantees hours upon hours of fun (which is the most important perk for kids), the ball pit also aids the development of social and motor skills.
Read on to learn more about the benefits of the ball pit for kids.
They’ll Be Able to Enjoy and Relax
Since there’s no right or wrong way to enjoy playing with the balls, your kid has the chance to explore and enjoy all the amazing features of the ball pit. Some children would be fascinated and excited about the colors of the balls. Others would discover what it’s like to throw and catch. Maybe two siblings would squirm around and love the sound the balls make when clashed together.
From sitting and relaxing to tossing balls around, the biggest advantage of the smarTrike 3-in-1 activity center is that your tiny tike will have unlimited fun.
Kids Learn to Share Their Mini Ball Pit During Playdates
Instinctively, kids find it hard to share their toys with others. Letting another kid play with their toys is an action they'd only consider even after being persuaded. This is where the ball pit for toddlers’ playdates comes in.
Teaching your child to share with their siblings or friends can be pretty stressful, especially when they are unyielding, but a ball pit will make it a lot easier. 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.
Soon, your kid(s) will come to learn that playing games in their ball pit with someone else is far better than playing alone. This knowledge will be the foundation on which their social skills will be built. They will socialize easily and invite friends to play in the ball pit or mini indoor trampoline.
Improve Motor Skills Using Our Indoor Ball Pit for Toddlers
By playing in the ball pit cum mini trampoline, your child can improve their fine motor skills. Fine motor skills refer to the coordination of small muscle movements in the hands, wrists, and fingers in coordination with the eyes. They are responsible for enabling functions such as writing, grasping objects, and self-grooming. Gross motor skills involve the use of larger muscles in the legs, arms, and torso.
Seated in the ball pit, your kid(s) can grab, count, and play with the balls to hone their fine motor skills. You can even play catch with your kid while they’re in the ball pit to test their fine motor skills at work. If they throw the balls back at you, they will be improving their gross motor skills.
Safety First! - And We’re Not Just Saying That
Your child's safety while having a blast in the ball pit or baby trampoline is our utmost priority. Each product part plays a significant role in the safety and functionality of the complete product.
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 getting covered in balls. And for when the toddler ball pit transforms into a baby trampoline, we created a padded handlebar your baby can hold on to while practicing how to bounce.
We make smarTrike products that grow with your child so that they’re never taking on more than they can handle. This way, your child will achieve developmental milestones at a healthy pace.
Make Sure to Always Supervise Your Child Even with optimal safety features, the best way to keep your kid safe from harm is to keep a watchful eye whenever they play in the ball pit or 2-in-1 indoor trampoline.
You’ll be the one to decide whether or not your kid is ready to graduate from the ball pit to the trampoline. It’s important not to rush your child into the next stage of the activity center if they aren't ready for it yet. Perhaps run a few demos to give them a feel of the next level and return to the lower stage if you notice that they are uncomfortable.
Don’t Fill the Ball Pool Too Much! - Every Child Has a Different Capacity
For sure, a one-year-old differs in size and skill level from a three-year-old. Take these differences into consideration when filling up the ball pit for toddlers. It’s important not to fill the pool too deep with balls to the point where your child begins to struggle. Start by filling the pit with balls until it reaches their waist. As they grow, you can add more balls to the pool.
Summarily, the smarTrike activity center is a safe and fun way for kids to enjoy a ball pit and a mini indoor trampoline. We hope your kids have a spectacular time learning and playing.
