Before I even had my baby, I set off in search of a great bath tub to use for her when she came home from the hospital. It was really important for me to find something cute, but I also wanted her to have a bath tub that I knew she would be safe in. I looked at some tubs with baby slings, but I didn’t like them and thought the slings were not too sturdy and weren’t safe enough. I finally came across Fisher-Price Precious Planet Whale of a Tub in my local Baby Depot and decided to purchase it.
I was instantly attracted to this bath tub because it was so cute. It is actually shaped like a whale and even has eyes and a mouth painted on it. The tub is blue and large, so that baby will be able to use it well into toddlerhood. I liked the seat that was in the tub, however, and that is the feature that convinced me to buy it. There is a seat in the tub that will hold baby’s butt in place so he or she does not slide down too far in the water. You can sit baby one way so that their back is supported and then the other way when they are big enough to sit up on their own. My baby loved to lay back in this tub and then got to like sitting on her own too.
My daughter would play for the longest time in this tub. It is sturdy and made of a strong plastic. It is also deep enough to add enough water for baby to soak in and my daughter loved this as well. The plug in the bottom of the tub allows the water to be easily drained. My daughter used to like to pull the plug and let the water run all over the place, so this is something you need to watch so you don’t have a mess. The plug does stay in place, however, and I never had an issue with water just leaking out.
I also liked the fact that I got a whale bath toy for my baby when I purchased this tub. The toy is a cup with sprinkle holes in it and my daughter loved to play with it and be washed with it as well. She would like to watch the water sprinkle out of it and I found it to be great when I was washing her hair.
This tub is actually really reasonably priced, and it is sturdy and completely safe for my daughter. I would highly recommend the Fisher-Price Precious Planet Whale of a Tub tub over a different model with a baby sling. Your baby will enjoy being able to actually sit in the water and play. It is a must have item that should be added to baby registries. It is well worth the money and I am so glad that I found it!
After my daughter started learning how to stand on her own, I knew it was time for me to look for a walker for her so she could finally start to get her footing to walk on her own. I looked at many different products, both online and in stores and finally decided to purchase a Fisher-Price 2-in-1 Singing Band Walker.
Originally, I found this product on Amazon and checked it out on there. It had some great reviews, but I decided to check it out in a store to see what I thought of it. I then found this product at my local K-Mart store and was definitely impressed.
For a little toy, this walker does so many different things. Of course, it will help baby learn how to walk so that eventually, he or she will be able to walk alone. But this walker also has a full front full of entertaining things. I really liked the fact that when a baby walks with it, it plays music. This is a fun way to encourage a child to walk and the music is upbeat and cheerful. It plays songs like, “She’ll Be Comin’ ‘Round the Mountain” and other similar tunes. Then, there is a four key piano on the front too, which my daughter was so fascinated by. She would push the keys for the longest time and giggle at the sounds she was making with them. There is a book with pages that you can turn attached to the front and the walker even has lights to encourage baby to walk. When baby walks, there are even phrases of praise.
All this product required was some AA batteries which was simple enough and it came already assembled, which I liked because I didn’t have to spend time putting it together or have the hassle of trying to figure out difficult instructions. I really like how durable and well-constructed this product is. My daughter is a little bit chunky, but never once toppled the walker over. She started walking by using this walker and still uses it just to play with. She loves to push it through the house at top speed because it’s so entertaining to her.
I would definitely say that this Fisher-Price walker is worth the money you will pay for it. If you cannot find it in a store, I would recommend ordering it online. It holds up so well and is a great toy, perfect to use for encouraging your baby to walk. My daughter still plays with it and I do not see her giving it up anytime soon. Even if you have not yet given birth to your baby, be sure to include this walker on your baby registry because you will get so much use out of it and your baby will love it! So glad I got it for mine!
As a mom, I have looked at a ton of different products to keep my baby entertained. After seeing an Exersaucer that a friend of mine had for her baby, I decided that maybe that was what I needed. I looked at many of these products until I finally found the one I thought was perfect for my baby. I found my Exersaucer at my local Baby Depot and can honestly say that it is one of the best and most useful things I ever got for my baby.
I wound up deciding to get the Evenflo Exersaucer Triple Fun Active Learning Center. Because my daughter is so active and we have stairs in my house, I felt as if a walker wasn’t the safest option, so this seemed perfect. The Exersaucer had so many things to play with on it. There are so many different functions for this Exersaucer. My daughter was about four months old when she started to use it and I really liked the fact that as she grew, I could adjust the height on the Exersaucer to suit her and make her comfortable.
My daughter loved the Exersaucer and sat for extended periods of time in it. She would chew on the teething products that it came with and watch TV. I also feel that this is a great product if you have a baby that is trying to strengthen their legs in preparation for walking. This allows baby to stand and be supported by the seat, and also allows baby to jump. My daughter did a lot of jumping in this product and I really liked that she wasn’t constantly wearing out my arms by jumping. You can also take the Exersaucer apart to use it as a walking table type thing, which is great for when your baby starts to cruise and hold on to things to walk. My daughter absolutely loved this!
The Exersaucer is made well and is a high quality baby item. It is sturdy and you can easily see that the materials used to make the product are durable. Everything on the Exersaucer is able to be cleaned with a wet washcloth and the seat cover can easily be taken off and thrown in the washing machine.
The Exersaucer was easy enough for me to put together, but the directions provided with it are a little bit confusing. You will need some tools to put it together, such as a screw driver, because there are screws that need to be fixed into place.
At the end of the day, I totally loved this product. I felt that my daughter was always safe when playing in it and it was something she looked forward to. It was a great product to use, especially when I had something to do and needed her to be occupied for a bit. The price was reasonable, and I can honestly say that I would recommend any mom get an Evenflo Exersaucer for their baby. It’s wonderful!
