Brilli the Imagination Ball Review (VTech)

What It Is

Brilli the Imagination Ball is an interactive toy that introduces children to counting, rhyming, vocabulary, and more. The ball has a squishy texture and funny face. Press Brilli's nose to turn it on and twist Brilli's top and bottom halves to choose one of five games. Throw Brilli to hear it count in the Counting game. In Rhyme Time, Brilli will say two words. If they rhyme, press Brilli's nose. If not, throw Brilli to another player. Throw Brilli around to hear silly sounds in Silly Sounds mode. In Sounds in Your World, press Brilli's nose when you hear the sound that matches what Brilli is looking for, such as the sound of a drum. Then throw Brilli to the next player. And in Hot Potato, pass Brilli around and see who is left holding the ball when the music stops. Brilli has a special motion sensor to keep track of games and prompt children to keep playing.

Is It Fun?

Brilli the Imagination Ball provides fun activities for kids to play alone or with a group. It's easy to rotate Brilli and choose the games. And the soft material makes it easy for young kids to grasp Brilli as they toss the ball around.

Who It’s For

Brilli the Imagination Ball is for ages 3–6.

What To Be Aware Of

Three AAA batteries are included, but these are for in-store try-me purposes. VTech recommends replacing them before you play for best results.

Brilli features automatic shut-off to preserve the battery life. However, if you don't want to wait for Brilli to turn itself off, press and hold down on Brilli's nose for several seconds until it turns off.

There is a volume button on top of Brilli that lets you select between three volume levels, which is a nice feature because this toy can be kind of loud at the higher setting.
