Sit to Stand Learning Walker Review 2020

Can the Sit to Stand Learning Walker for Baby really help toddlers take their first steps on all twos? Read on to find out more.

Sit to Stand Learning Walker

The early developmental milestones are so important and, as a parent, so exciting to watch. The transitions from sitting to standing to walking all seem to happen so fast. It is also a time when little ones take some nasty falls. The Vtech Sit To Stand Learning Walker is a great toy to help your child with standing and walking, and at the same time add in a little safety.

The Sit to Stand Learning Walker can be with your child all through these developmental milestones. The play panel can detach, so while your child is just learning to sit, you can detach the play panel and it’s a great toy for the floor. As your child begins to stand and walk the Sit to Stand Learning Walker will continue to entertain and help your child.

Some walkers can go way to fast and get away from your child. The Sit to Stand Learning Walker is perfect though because it won’t go too fast. It stays right with your child and even transitions easily between carpet and hard floors.

In our house, we have had two of these with our kids. They are great and I highly recommend the Sit to Stand Learning Walker. Plus I love that the play panel detaches, that way you can take it with you in the car. The play panel has so many things going on that kids really seem to love. It has piano keys that play music, spinning rollers, shape sorters, light-up buttons, telephone handset, spinning gears, and an open/close barn door. It has an educational mode and a music mode. So this really is several toys … Read the rest

Fisher Price Laugh and Learn Apptivity Case Review 2020

Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn Blue Apptivity Case for iPad Devices

Finally someone is helping us keep our iPhone’s and iPod’s safe from our sticky-fingered, drooling, adorable children. Thank you Fisher Price! This is one of the best products since sliced bread.  I’ve been looking forward to the Laugh and Learn Apptivity Case Review for a long time.  Let’s check it out.

With all the kid friendly apps on the iPhone and iPod they are a great way for kids to entertain themselves, but the problem is… our kids are entertaining themselves with our iPhone, that thing is expensive. It’s not normally a gadget you would just hand to your 2 year old and say, “Here you go, have fun”.

Well, thanks to Fisher Price, now you can. The Laugh and Learn Apptivity Case is the perfect way to allow your kids to enjoy all those fun apps, but still keep your phone safe. All you do is put your Apple gadget into the case and twist to lock it in. The Laugh and Learn Apptivity Case has large handles for easy gripping, teething rings, and even a mirror on the back. One of the features I love the most is that the “Home” button is covered up. It gets really frustrating when your kids keep accidentally hitting the home button and taken out of the app.

It’s inexpensive, so you just can’t go wrong with the Laugh and Learn Apptivity Case. Much better than having to replace your Apple device because it got dropped or drooled on to much.

I know lots of us parents have been waiting for something like this for a long time. For those parents who never knew their iPhone or iPod could be a great distraction for their child, well head on over to the app store and get those kid apps now. Fisher Price … Read the rest

Stomp Rocket Ultra Review (2020)

stomp rocket ultraThis is no ordinary Stomp Rocket, this is the Ultra Stomp Rocket. What makes it Ultra? I have no idea, but I do know this is a cool little toy. Actually, I think it is Ultra because the rockets are a little bigger and go a little higher than the junior version. When you get your hands on this kit, you will agree that it’s the best stomp rocket on the market This toy is a lot of fun and we have spent hours playing with this thing at our house.

Best Stomp Rocket

It is about as simple as a toy as you will find. You stomp on the launch pad which uses the air blast to propel the stomp rocket about 200 feet in the air. It comes with a flexible tube which is connected to a rectangular stomp pad made of plastic. The tube may look like one of those you’ll see in the best stethoscope 2020 models.

The tube end is then connected to one of the foam rockets. There is also a small plastic stand that serves as the launch pad.

Obviously the Ultra Stomp Rocket is ideally played with outside. When you are going for height, those 8-foot ceilings just seem to get in the way. However, on rainy days we have had a great indoor foam rocket battles. The rockets are lightweight foam, so you can play indoors and not worry about breaking things. But like I said, I think outdoors is best because you can spend hours adjusting and fine-tuning your blasts to try and get the rocket at just the right height you are looking for. Kids actually get very creative with the Ultra Stomp Rocket, figuring out different targets to hit and exactly how hard they need to stomp to … Read the rest
