ever seen. She has to touch everything and does not sit still
for a second. Besides that fact everything goes right into the
mouth and I need to make sure its safe. She loves pieces,
parts, noise and TOYS! When she was between 3 and four
months and first started showing interest, a lot of interest,
in the world around her, I made my first of many trips to the
store to find Toys that I thought would keep her occupied.She will
be 6 months in a week here and if you walked in my house today
you will walk right back out and check to see if there is a sign that
says Toys R Us outside. Yes, there are that many toys.
Doing product reviews just adds to the collection and she
has gotten a chance to review many wonderful items that
she truly loves for I would rather not post the review then
stretch the truth. There still is the fact that I am her mother
and I love to go and look and browse the isles and pick out
items myself that I think she might like. One of the first things
I bought her was a rattle but she was too little to grip it so I rushed
back and got this cute little Do-dad that had a suction cup
attachment that you could stick right to her stroller or highchair
and then that very same week I bought her a mirror. These soon
became her two favorite toys. I never even bothered to look at the
name of the suction Do dad and truthfully the box to the mirror was
tossed aside as soon as I saw her reaction. Right off the bat the
mirror became number one in this house, and I have to put it
away to feed her or all she will do is grin at herself and ignore
the food. At the same time I bought those items it could no longer
be overlooked that Rowan like to stand. It was all she wanted to
do and it was getting old for John and I for you can't cook dinner
while holding her up so she could stand, you can use the
bathroom, open the door or even talk on the phone for that
matter. I went to get her a Walker but her feet still couldn't touch.
I remembered Andrew had this little thing that hung in a door
frame that bounced and thought that might work. Again, back
in the car and too the store and off to the mall I went. I went to
3 different stores before I found one I liked. Most were simple
little holders with nothing for them to do. Andrew had one that
looked like an airplane and had gadgets where the controls were
for something that he could play with. The one I found I liked
was made by Sassy Toys, it was a big box so I noticed the name
this time. It has gadgets and was bright and cheery and adjustable
and everything I wanted. It also locked and wouldn't slip like the
one 16 years ago did. Rowan loved it!
I sat there with a smile on my face knowing I did
good and glanced at her Mirror wondering if that was a toy
of the past. That is when I noticed the tag. It said Sassy.
( Oh, and the mirror is still number one here!) I knew right
then I needed to let them know how fond of their toys my
daughter was. After talking to her and letting her know I
reviewed toys she offered to send me one of her other
items to review and post. I was eager to do so since I had
such a good track record with their items already. When she
sent me the list I was shocked to see Rowans other favorite toy,
the little suction cup Do Dad on it! That is three for three. I
am going to, er, I mean Rowan is going to love this review!
AND SHE DOES!
We received the Fill and Spill Barrel for her to evaluate.
Isn't that a hoot? A 6 month old has a say so in what's hot and
what's not? Well, so far she has been right on the money!
This toy kept her busy for, well, let's just say if I had an alarm go
off when she was done with it I could have taken a long nap and
caught up on some much needed sleep. It was that long.
She loved the fact she could see in it and knew what she was
trying to get. The fact that there were multiple items for her
to pull out and put in kept her really going and its wide, easy to
handle opening made it perfect for someones Rowans age
and I can see my 2 year old Nephew having just as much fun.
I liked that all the toys were safe and easy to clean. Toss
the little guys in the wash and the plastic in the sink or the
dishwasher. I didn't panic when she put them in her mouth
for after every use I just clean um off and no more germs!
Perfect for MZ Bizzy Body! The fact all the little buggers belong
in the bucket and fit perfect makes it a snap to pick up. An
added perk is when I put on the lid for clean up she is just
as entertained trying to get the lid off as she is when it is
off! Silly little girl! This makes Sassy's track record at my
house four for four and I can see the list is only going
to grow. When you make a good product to start it is
easy to find homes with kids that love it!
