Parents named Derek and Victoria said, “I am a mother of 3, and I wish I’d had this mat from the beginning. I was skeptical that a baby play gym could really be worth $140, especially because I thought pretty much all other play gyms are completely overpriced for what you get, and not to mention, they are just plain ugly. The first obvious difference is that the frame for this is made from solid wood. It’s soft and smooth, no chance of splinters and no sharp edges, every detail in this product has been carefully thought through, and it shows! It can hold up heavier toys, which your average mat will not. Not an issue with this one, and I LOVE IT! (via Amazon)
A woman named Rebecca had this to say about this toy, “My son was referred to physical therapy at 9 months old because he wasn’t crawling and only went on all fours for a few moments. The therapist had this toy in her office- it encourages babies to be up on all fours and strengthens the upper back muscles. I bought it for my son, he loved it and within a week he was crawling.
I also like that this toy is not overly sensitive. By that I mean it doesn’t go off easily- so many of my son’s lights-and-sounds toys will start up if you take a step too close to it. Drives me bonkers. This toy does not sing, talk or light up until the wheel is spun. All in all an excellent product.” (via Amazon)
An Amazon customer named Brittany said, “My 6 year old daughter asked for a dj mixer, so she can make music like Marshmello, for Christmas. I have been messing with it for a minute and it’s really cool! Most other dj tables for kids are either more for a toddler or you need to buy more stuff to go with it. This has Bluetooth so it is optional but she probably won’t be using that just yet. The quality is good. The adjustments all work. It sounds great! Not to mention the lights are going to go great with her led color changing lights in her room. I just know she’s going to love it! If your child is in kindergarten and up and shows interest in something like this, this would be the product you want!” (via Amazon)
An Amazon customer called LMA said, “Bought this for the top of a dresser. I wanted something secure as we were not mounting additional hardware to the dresser. After looking at the earlier reviews I was skeptical, but being able to mount this on the back of the dresser and the non-slip pads (not to mention the safety belt) were safety measures I needed. I’m so glad I went with this! The pad was ordered and arrived 3 months prior to giving birth. Bought the pad covers at Walmart. As long as you get one with holes for the straps and is made to fit the inclining sides you’ll be fine. Our bouncing baby boy kicks, attempts to roll around, plays and remains secure on the table. With the non-slip pads it wont even scoot around.” (via Amazon)
An Amazon customer named Kerstie said, “I knew what this was as I have 4 kids and have used Little Swimmers for 13 years lol. FYI moms the absorbency is to catch poop, not pee. Please be sure to put their swimmer on at the pool/beach etc. Traveling while wearing a swimmer will make for accidents in your car! After 13 years I thought they would have come up with a way to absorb pee but guess not yet!” (via Amazon)
Amazon Dad Review had this to say, “No frills, just works. Over the last few years I have tried 5 different diaper pails from all the top brands and the Munchkin always comes out on top. I like the larger version for when the kids are smaller, but as they get closer to potty training I like the compact version. They hold the smell in amazing. The only downside is they seem to have about a 1 to 1 1/2 year shelf life before something breaks (usually the gear thing on the lid) or the plastic starts to permanently hold the smell.” (via Amazon)
An Amazon customer named Jess C. said, “If I could pick ONE and ONLY ONE toy to entertain a baby for the entire first year and beyond, THIS IS IT. Hands down, no question. These cups are frickin’ amazing and versatile. Light enough for young babies to handle, sturdy enough for older babies and toddlers to beat on, no sharp corners, compact and easy to travel with, and they make a really satisfying clattering noise when you knock them down, unlike those soft blocks. Yeah, I hear you saying, “Oh, they’re just a bunch of stupid plastic cups. How exciting could they possibly be? What do you even DO with them??” Everything. Just buy them. Your kid will know what to do.” (via Amazon)
An Amazon customer named Vlad said, “Got this one for my son, to help with stacking. He has special needs and stacking was one of the areas he was struggling with. During his OT they used a variant of this stacker with a lot of success, so while I was still at their office, I ordered one. So far, so good. He likes it, specially the red ring with yellow dots. He also liked the one with the beads inside. The rings are made out of plastic and appear to be durable. Update: They are very durable. Over a year has passed and they are still going strong.” (via Amazon)
An Amazon customer named Taylor Rose said, “This leave in conditioner has been amazing not only for my 18 month old’s curls, but my hair as well! It smells amazing, is very hydrating, and is well worth all of the hype it gets! I have seen a few negative reviews about alcohol being a main ingredient, but the agent being used is Ceteral alcohol and this is actually a HYDRATING agent that’s used in a lot of beauty products. People see the word alcohol and immediately assume it is drying, BUT the chemical composition of this specific alcohol is great for hair that needs more moisture! I just felt the need to write this review because I have looked for a great hair detangler/leave-in for so long (and have even used luxury products) and this one has been our favorite by far :)” (via Amazon)
An Amazon customer called D Graham said, “As a teacher, I fully recommend the set. My daughter is in grade 2 and still hasn’t been taught how to tell time at school; I was tired of constantly telling her the time. She got the set as a Christmas gift and after two 15 minute lessons she is able to tell time to the minute using the set. Using our real analog clock, that doesn’t have each individual seconds labeled, she’s accurate about 80% of the time. This is because the set includes not only the clock, but also whiteboard clocks where she writes in the digital and analog time. We used her school schedule and the included picture cards to write accurate times for each day’s activity.” (via Amazon)
An Amazon customer named Breen said, “Honestly we are minimalist people. Hate most of the plastic crap. And the repetition of most kids’ toys make you crazy. I can update the review long term for its endurance/longevity. My kiddo’s are 3&1, one talking vigorously and the other learning the language/single words but building her vocabulary. These things are awesome! So easy for the kids to use and learn on their own. The screen is very sensitive & responsive but great. The kids can easily check their knowledge very easily. I literally want to buy one for every niece & nephew & friend w a toddler – which there is MANY! The device has a system that reads when you turn the page and announces the new subject matter. Me & my doubtful man were immediately impressed. And it does the whole thing in espanol too! It’s a winner! Well done LeapFrog!” (via Amazon)
An Amazon customer named Kaitlin had this to say, “Are you an anal retentive mother like me? Then boy, do I have the product for you! I spent a lot of time researching sound machines and initially purchased this for our newborn. It worked great for nighttime feedings as you can adjust the light brightness from your phone. Have a big blowout that occurred at 2am? Fear not. This light will get you through that change without having to wake the baby with bright overhead lights.
Now, I schedule my children’s daily feedings and naps Kate Gosselin style, so this sound machine fits the bill. You can program it for certain times of the day and train your children to see the light and act accordingly. There are other cool features such as simply touching it with your finger to turn on and you can play your favorite settings all with the touch of a finger.” (via Amazon)
An Amazon customer had this to say, “Ok so! This is the best outdoor/indoor playpen ever. It’s a great size, the flooring is slightly padded but not enough for my liking – so I purchased something else to soften the blow. This playpen also comes with half a canopy! The best part about it is that you can remove the canopy around it to block out the sun. I always placed a netting around the playpen to avoid bugs coming in. But this is legit the best- I would just also buy another floor mat if your child is still learning to sit/crawl/walk etc.” (via Amazon)
A customer named Ciat had this to say: “At the beginning of my third pregnancy I walked down the aisles looking at all the new gizmos and gadgets for babies. What a silly thing, right? Who can’t just use the good old free finger technique (ew)? Then we had MONTHS of ear infections. In case you aren’t familiar: ear infections = antibiotics = explosive stool. Because I was going through so much diaper rash cream, I began buying in the large jars. Have you ever tried to stick your hand in a jar of diaper rash cream? You do not leave said jar unscathed. This product is soft for babies bums and it is flexible for the hard to reach areas of the jar. This product is so easy to clean AND the quality is great. I have 2 full size applicators and 1 travel size. (via Amazon)
