First Toddle Review, Promo Code and $50 Gift Card Giveaway

Friday, September 17, 2010

This contest is now closed.
A winner has been selected.


Ever look at all the toys and baby gear you've accumulated over the years and wonder if it was all worth it? Or are you a recent or soon-to-be parent and feeling overwhelmed trying to narrow down the products that will give you the biggest bang for your buck? Stop wondering and start saving. For the cost of your typical baby activity centre, you can now treat your wee one to a versatile and ingenious 5-in-1 baby gym called the First Toddle.


Designed by Mike Monaghan and inspired by his twins, the First Toddle is the solution to every parent's need for a quality product with multi-functional features. I'm telling you, this baby gym packs a punch. Suitable for babies as young as 3 months all the way to toddlerhood and beyond, the First Toddle promotes cognitive development and exploration as it grows with your child. The complete 5-in-1 system provides your newborn with a comfortable play floor mat and sturdy parallel bars to help him or her learn to stand and walk. It also comes with velcro fasteners from which to hang baby's toys as well as a large activity table.

Once your child is a bit older, they can use the parallel bars for some gymnastics fun. It has three adjustable heights and you can see my 5-year-old enjoyed balancing on the First Toddle at the highest setting.


My two-year-old son also enjoyed hanging around. And you can also tell that these are my kids since they like "hanging around" in their pyjamas.


The fun doesn't end there, however. With the mesh tent accessory, you can easily transform the First Toddle and provide your child with some crawl-thru fun. My kids decided to camp out in for a bit. It was one of those rare times that they actually agreed and got along well. Score!

Speaking of scoring, the First Toddle comes with a mesh net to convert it into a soccer or hockey net. With blue and pink balls, foam hockey stick and mini goal, it was a huge hit in our home. Just watch as my daughter attacked shot at the goal with fierce determination.


I gave the First Toddle to my friend who tested it out with her three girls aged 1, 4 and 7. The sports features were also popular with them, which I think is great because I feel it's just as important to promote sports among girls as it is among boys. Here are her two youngest sharing some mat time.


My friend sums it up by saying that, all in all, it is a durable toy and because of the many configurations it's great for kids beyond the 3 year recommendation. And I tend to agree. Oh, and I'm inserting some more pictures of her middle child because she's just too cute not to.

Here are some more noteworthy features of the First Toddle:

  1. Contains no lead, no paint, no PVC and no BPA
  2. Safety tested and certified
  3. Assembles easily without tools (no flimsy allen keys required!)
  4. Disassembles just as easily for storage or transport in reusable box
  5. Eliminates the need for a multitude of toys
  6. Great for children with special needs
  7. You can count on great friendly service from the people at First Toddle!
It is also the recipient of several awards including the National Parenting Center 2010 Seal of Approval. The First Toddle is truly a unique must-have for babies.
