First Toddle Review, Promo Code and $50 Gift Card GiveawayFriday, 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
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.
