    5-0 out of 5 stars A fabulous toy!
    I bought this gym for my baby when she was only two months old. Now, at 5 months, her father and I can actually eat dinner at the SAME TIME!! I can put her in it while I wash bottles, make my own lunch, or throw in a load of laundry and she's happy. She's figuring out how to get the toys off now and it can keep her happy for an hour or more. She loves the music and has figured out that she can kick the bar and activate the star on "Motion" setting. This is WELL worth the money anyone would pay for it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars my baby LOVES this
    My 2 month old absolutely loves this gym. He is captivated by the flashing lights on the star. He keeps the music going by kicking the gym. He's also beginning to reach for the other hanging objects and enjoys looking at himself in the mirror. The product is great...it gives mommy a little time to herself while baby is happily entertained.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Worth the Money
    Our baby loves to kick the blue rattle with his feet, which makes the lights light up and the music play. He laughs so loud! He has learned cause and effect with this toy even at less than a month old! Also, the green pillow is great for 'tummy time'. This activity gym is worth the money!

    5-0 out of 5 stars 3 Cheers for Baby Einstein!
    We bought the Baby Einstein Discovery and Play Gym for my nephew about 2 months ago and it is wonderful! He loves to lay on the mat "talking" to the star, watching the lights, and listening to the music that he has grown fond of from the DVD's! Next to being held, this is my nephew's favorite thing to do. The gym goes with us everytime we go out of town! Thanks Baby Einstein!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great Investment
    Definitely worth the price. My child loves it. The detachable toys prevent the baby from becoming bored looking at the same things. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    This toy will make you want to take a nap. Equipped with straps that attach it to a crib, this play aquarium and music maker is the perfect thing to amuse a child or soothe them to sleep. There are three settings, depending on what kind of stimulation is needed: music only; music plus soft glowing lights; and music plus lights, bubbles, and moving fish. There are also three music options, the best one offering soft and melodic New Age fare, the other two somewhat odd, spacey versions of familiar lullabies. The music combined with the lights creates an instantly peaceful, soothing ambiance. There are a couple of buttons and doodads for baby to bat around that make the fish react in various ways. If these buttons were a little more responsive, this toy would be near perfect. --David Stoesz ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars My little one goes to sleep everynight w/ this toy
    We really like it. I had the older one for my 6 year old. Now my 7 month has had this one for 6 months, and has listened to it everynight before bed. He has now learned how to turn it on and off himself. I would highly recommend this toy.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Second baby still loves it
    I love this aquarium. We first had the older version of it with my first son (broke it when he got older). Then we got this one for my now 6 month old. I change his dipes in the crib sometimes or let him play there and I just turn it on for him to watch. He loves it. I LIKE that it can be loud because when I lay him down for a nap, I want it to drown out the noise in the background... like of my almost 3 year old racing through the house. <br /> <br /> It definitely keeps him entertained and even moreso as a newborn.

    3-0 out of 5 stars ok toy
    This is just an ok toy. My 9 month old son likes it ok but it not one of his favorites. The motor is loud and it's kind of creepy music. I would recommend getting a different toy to soothe your little one back to sleep. My child just mainly likes to play with it a few minutes or so.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Not quite what I expected
    The ocean waves sound really soothes my son to sleep, but I have to keep the volume turned down all the way. I can't believe how loud the volume is for a nightime toy. Also, I can't turn the bubbles on because the motor is so loud if it doesn't keep the baby awake, it keeps me awake over the monitor. The bubbles are the major reason I bought it, so I'm not exactly thrilled with it. I just feel like there was probably something else out there we both would have liked better.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Helps her learn to go back to sleep on her own
    I bought this for my daughter when she was just 1 month old, she is now almost two and she still loves it. You can adjust the how low it hangs down in the crib so I have never had a prblem with her head getting hurt. She loves to push it by herself, and when she wakes up in the middle of the night she just sits up and pushes the button and goes back to sleep. The Bubbles are a bit to loud to use when she is older though and the music is also a bit loud for a crib toy. But the running water noise saved us when she was a baby. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Activity mats are a staple baby item in most households. They provide a safe, fun, and educational environment where your little one can lie or sit, and play. Tiny Love's award-winning deluxe mat depicts a riot of happy animals. Elephants, monkeys, giraffes, and even birds will charm your baby who will love the round mirror, squeaky bird, crinkly elephant ear, and pullable giraffe tail. Also included are four plastic rings that can hang from the crossbars, each one with a different plush animal attached to it providing more stimulation and activities. Hidden in one corner of the playmat is a small plastic box housing a switch and speaker. Move the switch to Mozart to hear 10 continuous minutes of music and to light up the three flowers on the mat. Switch to Nursery Tunes for shorter snippets of three popular songs. The mat and its arches fold up nicely, and the entire gym snaps together and travels easily. --Pam Lauer ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT ENTERTAINMENT
    My 4 1/2 month old daughter has enjoyed this Gymini for over two months. It is wonderful entertainment. She especially loves the mirror and looking at the flowers light up when she is on her belly. I love the convenience of being able to fold it up quickly and neatly to take to our parents' houses. It is the ONE item that we could not live without right now. She loves to play on it for over an hour a day. It's well worth the money.

    5-0 out of 5 stars GREAT GYM
    Our 4 month old little girl just loves this gym. She plays with all of the animals and just laughs for hours at a time. It folds up very easily, which makes it a sure thing to take to the grandparent's house. I would highly recommend this gym for your infant.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful
    My 8 week son is very active. He loves to move his arms and legs all day long. So, I knew a Play Gym would be perfect for him. He loves this one. He can kick and grab at the hanging toys for up to an hour. It's very colorful. There is so much for him to look at. Don't think for a minute that this is too busy or that there is too much going on. He makes all sorts of happy grunting and gurgling sounds, so I know he is being entertained. He isn't laying on his tummy very often yet, but that just means he can grow into this toy. I highly recommend this Play Gym!

    5-0 out of 5 stars This is Great
    My baby loves to play with this. I used this almost right away. Great colors and music. You will be sooo proud when your baby first reaches for the toys!!!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars A MUST FOR YOUR NEW BABY
    This is by far the greatest gift we got! I don't know what I would have done without this! My daughter loved it so much. I first put her in it when she was 3 weeks old and she stared at the animals so intently. She would smile so big at the giraffe... It was too cute. It encouraged her to reach, swat, kick and grab at objects very quickly. And the mirror on the corner helped encourage her to roll over at an early age. The arches are removable (and should be removed once your baby can sit up) and the mat & toys are machine washable. It folds up nicely and I kept the original plastic bag it came in for traveling. Again, this is sooooo worth the money!! I would move the toys around all the time. And she loved the different textures. The giraffe and monkey are rattles, the parrot crinkles, and the elephant vibrates. There's another rattle and mirror too. She loved chewing on the monkey and giraffe feet! Perfect size for a little mouth :-)The mat itself has a crinkly elephant ear, zebra tail, squeeky bird, and musical flowers that light up. You can put the music on yourself, or they go on when your baby puts pressure on the music pad.
    The ONLY negative is that when it folds up, the "good side" of the mat and toys are exposed, instead of folding the opposite way. But if you save the original bag, it's not a big deal.
    I can't say enough about this - it helped me occupy my baby for hours. I just loved laying next to her while she played - or knew that she could entertain herself while I relaxed nearby. It has been a favorite for months - adapting to her development!! DEFINATELY BUY!!! ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    This is a happy, noisy toy that should amuse most toddlers. Everything that can be touched reacts in some way, from a trombone-playing frog to a book that sings the alphabet. Our favorite is the colored keyboard that sings each color you press. The tabletop can be placed on the floor for those still in the crawling phase, or can sit on the included legs for a sturdy surface and leaning spot for little ones who are new to walking. If there is any fault with the Learning Table, it may be that it has too many features: each element of the table reacts in two different ways, depending on whether it's in Learn Mode or Music Mode. (Modes are switched by flipping the page of the book mounted in the center of the table.) Though this means more fun stuff for kids to hear, the mode concept is not one that they can be expected to understand, and the effect of the toy's inconsistent reactions is likely to be confusion. --David Stoesz ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Well worth the money!
    Bought this for my daughter at about 6 mos and she just turned one. She still plays with it! It is well worth the money. Also, it is fun to put little goodies in the open/close compartment. I put cheerios in there and she loves it!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great toy!
    This is a must! This was given to my daughter before she could walk. Not only did we take the legs off so she can play with it while sitting up, but this toy helped her pull up! We love this toy! She is a toddler now and still enjoys it and I am sure when our newborn gets older she will enjoy it the same. ***We use to put surprises in the little purple compartment!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Love this!!!!!
    Wow!! We got this for Christmas for our 4 month old and she loved it from day 1!! She loved holding herself up and standing by it and playing with it. I thought that there didn't look like very many activities but when you turn the page in the middle it makes all the gadgets do new things. Our daughter is now 1 and still plays with it all day. My husband has even caught me playing with it and singing along a few times!! I love it too!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great For Learning to Walk
    I bought this for my son when he was first starting to crawl. After I bought it he was pulling up on it and cruising/ walking around it at 7 months. He interacts with it by learning how to open the little purple lid, how to press, push, pull and how to flip the page. It is very heavy and he can push it and bang as hard as he can and it will not flip. It is also very durable, although, the purple lid can be pulled off but it is safe and it snaps back on easily. It is funny because my son cannot stand for me to reattach it because the first thing that he does is pull it back off. Highly recommended.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best table toy ever!
    My kids and any other kids that come to my home LOVE this toy. It's the first thing they got to. We've had ours for about 2 years now and when ever any one I know have a baby I get this for them as their Happy six months old gift! This is a MUST have for any kid! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Our twins love the jumparoo!!!
    We purchased this almost a week ago for our 5 month old twin girls. I wanted it mainly to help strenghen the smaller twins legs and she didn't really get much entertainment from the Exersaucer and the FP Take Along Hop & Pop. She loves bouncing around! I did put a pillow on the floor since she couldn't yet reach even on the first setting. She'll stay in it for close to an hour. They both get excited when they activate the music and lights. The girls are both under 11 pounds, so we'll get plenty of use out of this!!!

    I'm so glad someone came up with a jumper that didn't require a doorway!!! I remember with my older children, I was always so afraid the Johnny Jump-up would fail or the molding would come down.

    This has by far been the easiest product to put together!

    5-0 out of 5 stars We looked and we looked...
    for a jumper that did not require placement in a doorway. We have only two small doorways (bedroom) to hang one in. We were afraid she might actually bump herself hanging there. We decided on the Jumperoo after a few days of research.

    At first, we were leary of purchasing another Fisher Price product considering the difficulty of assembling the Cozy Fit Infant Highchair. However, when we got this home, it was assembled in less than 15 minutes without the instructions. Our six month old 15 pound daughter loves this Jumperoo. She hops, moves and bounces with nothing but smiles and delightful giggles. She is an absolute joy to watch in it also.

    There are two volume control settings for music: high and low. The high setting is not obnoxious. There are also two mode settings. You can set the Jumperoo to play music when the baby jumps and moves, or you can set it to play only when the button is pushed. While the music plays, there are two lights that flash back and forth. It is a real eye catcher for our little one.

    The toys are easily accessible to our daughter's reach while sitting in the Jumperoo. The Lights and Sounds Toy does come off easily and there is a small tray underneath that could hold other favorite toys. Another wonderful feature was the four height adjustments enabling the Jumperoo to grow with our daughter. Seat depth is about 12 inches so she is well protected and stabilized on all sides. Additionally, the seat does come off easily for washing.

    We have not had any problems with the Jumperoo. It is sturdy and folds up nicely so you can tuck it away. It unfolds just as easily, but is rather roomy. For the many smiles given to all of us, the Jumperoo was well worth the investment. We wouldn't change any of it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Baby Toy
    Bought the Jumperoo for my son when he was 4 months because he loved standing on our lap and trying to jump. As soon as we put him in it he loved it. Played with the toys right away and loves being able to jump on his own. He is now 7 1/2 months and there isn't a day that goes by that he's not in it! The best money ever spent on a baby toy. We've used this toy the most out of anything. If your baby loves to be active and bounce around...this is the toy for you!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Worth every penny!!
    We bought this for my daughter when she was 6 months old, after seeing at a baby shower. She is now 9 months. It is worth every penny. She jumps in it every day and loves it. I have even caught her falling asleep while she was jumping, she didn't want to get out. This is definitely a toy worth buying. We had gotten a walker as a shower gift and I returned it. She has one at the babysitters and didn't like it, she enjoy this much more!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great product.
    I got this as a baby shower gift. And it is a wonderful thing. I started to use it when my daughter was 4 months. She just loves this thing. Of course she can only sit in it for 15 mins because she gets tired of it. This is a great buy/gift for the baby. My baby gets so excited in it, she bounces and screams in it. The first time we put her in there she was soo happy - I couldn't stop laughing and neither could she!!! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best $$ ever spent-just bought 2nd
    I wouldn't be able to praise this toy enough. We gave it to our oldest daughter last Christmas when she was 3 1/2. We were concerned because of the price but compared to a GameBoy we prefered the educational aspect. We have never regreted the purchase. She loves playing with it and has even mastered basic math skills well ahead of time. We had a problem with the screen not responding after about 6 months but it only took a quick email to Leap Frog and they replaced it with our only expense being a few dollars to ship it to them. They have excellent Customer Service. We would have even invested the money to buy a new unit if they hadn't replaced it. <br /> <br /> We have just purchased a unit for our 19 month old daughter because she always wants to share big sister's. I know the age is 4-10 but our little one just loves the characters and even though she doesn't totally understand what to do, she still loves playing. It has helped her to master control of the stylus and she is now much better at coloring too. We have a few extra cartridges and plan on expanding for Christmas. <br /> <br /> We haven't had a problem with battery consumption. This toy definitely hasn't eaten batteries nearly as quickly as others and my older daughter plays with it almost every day. She would play with it more if I would allow it. But we still plan on buying the recharging system too.<br /> <br /> I highly recommend the investment in the carrying case also.<br /> <br /> You just can't go wrong with this toy.

    5-0 out of 5 stars my grandson
    I purchased the LeapFrog Leapster for my grandson as a Christmas gift when he was 2 years old. His mom gave it to him when we was 21/2, he absolutely loves it and has learned so much. I like the durability, educational theme and the add ons, it just keeps getting better and better.

    My son was given this on his 4th b-day, he absolutely loves it and so do I! It has taught him alot and the only reason I rated a 4 and not a 5 is because of the battery situation!! Ouch!

    My son got this toy for his 4th birtday. He truly loves it, but it's a battery eater! I cannot believe how quickly this toy drains 4 AA batteries. Thank goodness they are coming out with a recharging unit soon or we'd go broke!

    I've never written a review before, but feel I have to about this product. It is the BEST money spent on my daughter ever!!!! My daughter got this for Christmas when she was 3 1/2 years old. She has played with it every day. At night we read books to her and then let her do her Leapster for a little while. We just purchased The Letter Factory for our last trip....and she already knows ALL the letter phonics....it is just amazing!!!!! We have never had a problem with it in 7 months...and we just put new batteries in it for the first time. I so highly reccomend this toy!!!!! ... Read more

    This Portable Fun Ultrasaucer is one of the most versatile and action-packed entertainers on the market. Loaded with eye-catching interactive toys and activities (there are 11 separate activities) designed to encourage hand-eye coordination and cognitive development, the Ultrasaucer also has some great design features that make life easier for mom and dad, like height adjustable legs, three flip-down feet for stationary play, and a very handy "fold" button so you can easily collapse the Ultrasaucer for compact storage or travel. Babies can bounce or rock on the saucer's wide plastic base, or spin around inside the saucer on the soft fabric seat. The Ultrasaucer is designed for use by children from 4 months of age until they can walk. --Chris Burns ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Always amusing for my baby!!
    My husband and I knew that we wanted to get our 5 month old daughter a stationary exerciser for Christmas, but even after reading online reviews, we still were undecided on which one to choose. So we took Ciara to the store, and placed her in many floor models to let her pick for herself. She immediately was fascinated with all of the different toys on the UltraSaucer, so that's what we bought. It did take my husband and I an hour or so to put together, but we were taking our time to be sure it was right. She loves to look at herself in the two mirrors, and turn on the musical parts. I was concerned about the pieces she was putting in her mouth (the rattle, and the top of the mirror) but upon closer inspection, I found that these are made of a softer, flexible plastic. I put her in the seat whenever I want her stationary, without pulling out a lot of toys. Ciara has been using the seat numerous times daily since Christmas, and is still very interested in every toy on it. She has learned to spin herself completely around in it over and over again. I also catch her standing up on her own, using the seat only for balance. I highly recommend this for any parent, just remember to BE PATEINT during assembly.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A must-have for babies!!!
    I saw this Exersaucer on Oprah whenever she hosted a baby shower and thought it looked like a neat one, so I bought for my 4-month-old daughter. It is the absolute greatest Exersaucer...there are SOO many fun and neat things for babies to play with on there. She especially likes the lights and mirrors. I would strongly recommend purchasing this for your child or a friend ~> DEFINITELY worth the price!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Love this toy!!!
    We bought the saucer when our daughter turned 5 months old, she is 7 months now and still loves it. It was easy to put together and she never gets bored. I can't get it to fold up though but we don't really need to travel with it. The toys are awesome and she is our little queen!! def worth the $$$$

    5-0 out of 5 stars Gotta Have It
    When I was pregnant a friend of mine had saucer and I remember her son chewing on all the different toys and I thought that it was one of the neatest things in the world and decided I needed to get one for my baby. I waited till after my son was born and when he was 2 months (he was already sitting with minimal assistance) and my mother and I went to the store and decided on this one because it was one of the cuter models, had lots of leg room (some don't) and lots of things to chew on Oh and it also bounces! Well my son absolutely loved it, until he discovered crawling at 6 months, and now that he is 7 months and pulling up on everything he loves it again because they are things he can play with on his level. Overall this was the best investment I have made outside of disposable diapers to be honest, and I tell everyone to get one because if their child loves it half as much as mine its worth it. Not to mention it gives you time to make dinner or just read a book w/o having to entertain a baby.

    5-0 out of 5 stars must buy
    After researching exersaucers online I decided on this one because of the great reviews.

    It is definitely worth the high price tag. My son loves all the toys. The toys that play music are not too loud; which is great so they don't startle my son when he taps them.

    I found it very easy to assemble. I completed it in 30 mins. ... Read more

    Many high-tech toys start with a fun and fascinating idea only to make it frustratingly complicated in the execution. Leave it to LEGO to make a technologically advanced toy fun to play with. The enormous 718-piece LEGO Mindstorms Robotic Invention System lets you construct a variety of moving robot vehicles and then program them from your Windows 98- or Windows Me-compatible computer. The robots are all based around a bright yellow basic unit, which serves as the functional heart of whatever is being built. The brick receives commands from the computer via an infrared tower unit. The computer interface is incredibly user-friendly and intuitive. What's most impressive about the system, however, is the variety of robots that can be built. There are detailed instructions for each one, and since these are LEGOs, builders are free to come up with an endless variety. --John Moe ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Toy I have Played with in 40 Years
    This system is phenominal. We own version 1.5, purchased a year ago and we have not put it down. And trust me, this is not for kids only. I only wish there was something around like this when I was 12 - I was stuck with Robbbie the Robot replicas.
    When my son opened it for Christmas, we knew it would be a big hit. We have spend uncountless hours working on this together (quality, quality time) and the problem solving skills he has gained have put him in a position that he can now program a computer in Visual Basic at 12 years. (Not that this system teaches you VB, but it sure teaches you logic and structure, necessities for any program language)
    We have since bought all the expansion kits, a few books and have built robots capable of some unbelievable feats.
    Keep in mind that older Technic sets work well with these sets as well as many of the other Lego sets you have.
    I would recommend this set to anyone, especially those who longed for a real robot as a child, not a "flashing lights only" Robbie.

    Best think ever
    I have this toy for more then a yeat and it still is fun,i keep making stuff i even made a robotic hand, this is the best thing ever well what are you wating for buy it!!!

    Beware of software incompatibilty
    Unless you have Windows 98 or Windows ME, it may not work (who knows -- you may get lucky). I refuse to use either of these operating systems, which I consider wretched. The Mindstorm official FAQ says it was tested only on those 2 operating systems. For those who can get it to work, apparently it's a great product.

    Great Product, but IR Tower has problems w/certain computer
    Great Product - but like another reviewer, I had the same issues with the IR Tower and XP. Non of the Lego Support Documents were of much use, but using an older PC with Windows 98 did the trick.

    A MUST!!!!!
    I am an engineering student and we use these in our robotics lab. Adults with an interest in programming can use java or C to program, children can use the included software. The software is an easy to use visual drag and drop type software. I would recommend every parent to purchase this toy. It allows the kids to learn the basics of programming and see the immediate results when the program is downloaded to the robot. My 9 year old daughter never lost interest in my assignments. This is one of the best learning toys I have ever seen. I am planning on purchasing on for myself to use with my daughter (lots of little parts, messy children will need some supervision or most of the robot will be in the vacuum). Children between 7-12 will enjoy the product, with alot of assistance from parent, over 12 should have no trouble at all with it. Excellent for education, and a lot of fun for a parent - child activity. ... Read more

    Why should big bouncy high-energy fun be reserved for carnivals and outdoor festivals? Now you can have the excitement of the bouncy castle often seen at those public venues in your own backyard. This castle set inflates with minimal effort once you hook it up to the heavy duty fan that is included. The packaging claims that the castle can be fully mounted in 45 seconds and in our informal test we did have pretty speedy results. Once its set up, kids up to 83 pounds are ready to get in and bounce (total weight should not exceed 250 pounds) in the yellow, red, and blue castle set. The entrance ramp and safety netting around the sides make for nice touches as does the convenient storage bag. --Charlie Williams ... Read more

    Fantastic Fun
    We purchased this item for our daughter's birthday party from Walmart.com. We were notified that it would be delivered in 7 business days, but to my surprise, we got the package in less than 48 hours later! The Bounce 'Round was a hit with all 9 kids, ranging from 1 to 5 years of age. It was easy to set up and take down. It's big enough to hold 4-5 toddlers but small enough to fit inside a garage or patio. It's not educational by any means but it keeps children occupied for hours! We also purchased 100 plastic balls to put inside the Bounce 'Round for added fun. We highly recommend this product.

    VERY DISAPPOINTED
    We ordered this on-line and paid the shipping cost because the only other bounce house we could find were 8 X 8 or smaller. This was going to be a present for our 4 year old and it was going to be used at his party. It stated right on the box 9X9. As my husband set it up, he thought that it looked rather small. He measured it corner to corner and it measured 7ft 6in by 7ft 6in. Not even close to being 9X9. It was very easy to blow up but we were very disappointed in the size. We returned it (...). We then called the manufacture to complain about false advertising and were handled very rudely!!!! WE WERE VERY DISAPPOINTED IN THE PRODUCT AND WITH SPINMASTER.

    Motor Problems
    Based on all the great reviews I purchased this product from a local ToyRus store. Much to my disappointment when I removed the contents of the box the motor was completely torn apart (it is metal so this was no easy task). I phoned the store and they graciously sent someone to my home to replaced the damaged merchandise. However, after removing the contents again there was a large gapping crack across the motor. This time the store said they would check the contents before bringing over a new motor. When the 3rd motor was delivered it looked "beat up" but was intact and did work. The gentleman who searched for the replacement and made the delivery said there were several more boxes with damaged motors in them. After finally getting it all together and setting it up (which was very easy) my soon to be 3-year-old wanted nothing to do with it. What a disappointment. It will go back ASAP.

    Bouncin' Birthday Bash...
    We wanted to rent a bounce house for my daughter's (...) birthday party but we didn't have the space to accomdate one of the rentals. I was on-line searching for a motorized Jeep for her birthday gift when I came upon the bounce 'round castle. We nixed the idea for the Jeep and opted for the bounce house. And I'm soooo glad that we did! My young lids just love it! It's sooooo easy to set up and take down. I was constantly scolding my two younger children for jumping on their beds, my furniture, etc. Now I just send them outside and they can jump until their legs turn to jello! In the long run it was much cheaper to purchase the bounce house than to rent one.

    Cheaper at [local store]

    Be it a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away or right here at home in the 21st century, Mr. Potato Head never fails to reinvent himself. For generations this spectacular spud has wowed us all with his ability to keep up with the times. Now he throws us all for a loop once again to reveal that even he has a Dark Side, taking up the role of the most menacing movie villains of all times: Darth Vader. Donning the trademark black helmet, mask and cape, our favorite tuber wields the infamous red lightsaber to become his own Darth Tater. Of course you’ll still find all the classic accessories like the googly eyes, red nose, and silly tongue we’ve come to love but now with an added twist of Star Wars. As always, all the pieces still fit away inside his body for easy storage.--Chip Quinn ...

    At 42 years of age, I never thought I would find myself seeking out a Mr. Potato Head.But one look at Darth Tater and I was gone. Darth Tater now has his place on my desk at a respected law firm, but rarely can someone enter my office without playing with him.He sits on my desk, glaring menacingly out the office door at all those who dare to pass by.Generally, once he is spotted perched on his corner of my desk, he is greeted with a smile and his light saber arm is raised up and down.OK, so one coworker called me a dork, but that's OK.She's young and has much to learn.....My advice?Get Darth Tater if you can!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars REVENGE OF THE TATOR!
    This is great toy...I always loved Mr. Potato Head & now Darth Tator is my new favorite toy!

    Make sure you get your hands on this one while you still can, I know they still have them in stock at other sites.

    Oh & one more thing in reference to the guy from Lodi who openly admitted he hates Star Wars...its a shame that he owns one of the Tators & I hope his Tator seeks his revenge & breaks!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Sure to be a mashing success with "Star Wars" fans...
    Okay, I really wish I had come up with "Use the Forks, Luke" first, because no one is going to be able to top that one when it comes to the Mr. Potato Head Darth Tater.But I bet you cannot stop at just one when it comes to riffing on this idea (e.g., Luke and Leia are now Darth Tater Tots and the story takes place "in a grocers far, far away").Not since somebody decided to dress up Barbie in costumes from famous movies has a childhood icon benefited from a commercial tie in to a major motion picture.But not even Barbie as Eliza Doolittle from "My Fair Lady" comes close to the high level of Midi-Cuteians with this toy.

    In addition to the "Potato" with it storage space in the back, Mr. Potato Head Darth Tater comes with helmet, mask, cape, feet, arms (right one holding a light saber), eyes, nose, mouth, tongue, and two ears.The mask makes the nose, mouth and tongue incompatible (the mouth and tongue are either/or choices to begin with).Consequently, you can experiment with other looks besides the obvious: lose the mask and cape, put a face together, and the result is pretty cute.Of course, everything works just as well on a real potato for those of you who want to go real Old School on this one.

    If the words Mr. Potato Head Darth Tater does not sell you then the picture of this toy has got to seal the deal.There are obviously limited opportunities for companion Potato Heads in this series.Princess Leia's original cinnamon hair buns would work, as would Yoda (albiet with a green potato), but neither of those is ever going to be as cute as this one unless they use some sort of Jedi mind trick.That is because the farce is strong with this one...

    5-0 out of 5 stars I LOVE DARTH TATER!

    LeapFrog is well known for their interactive learning toys and now they've paired with Disney for a princesses' tour of language and math. Cinderella and Belle will help guide your child through various learning activities, such as: letter hunt, spelling games, addition and subtraction games, and number find. Both Belle and Cinderella tell jokes, sing songs, and are generally encouraging with sweet and cheerful voices. If your child decides to stop playing and doesn't turn the laptop off, the princesses ask, "Would you like to play some more?" and if there is no answer, the computer shuts itself off. An LCD screen displays letters, numbers, and other pictures during all the activities. Moms and dads will be glad to note that there are two volumes and virtually no set-up. Requires 4 "AA" batteries (included). --Megan Sullivan ... Read more

    Best toy in the house
    My 2 1/2 year old received this toy as a gift. She ABSOLUTELY loves her "puter". I fill my house with fun and educational toys and this one is hands down the best. She has been playing with it for a few weeks now and can sing her ABC's from A-K. All her friends want to play with it as well. I only wish they had a "boy" version so my son could have one of his own.

    Another good one from LeapFrog
    My mother and I were having a garage sale and I very much wanted to clean out and get rid of some toys. After explaining the concept to my daughter that if she sold some toys, she could buy some new ones. Well with her money, she picked this out of everything in the huge toy store. She loves it, she takes it in the car on trips, plays with it at the kitchen table while I am cooking. It's great, educational and something to grow with!

    A fun "umputer".
    I love it and I am 34yrs old.
    My 4yr old loves it. And, as far as I am concerned that is all that matters. The sound, the colors, the characters and the keys all all conducive to the purpose that it was intended for.
    I bought it for my daughter so she could use it when I was on our family computer.
    The only thing (and its not a big thing)is that I wish the screen was bigger.
    I would highly recommend it or buy it as a gift.

    Disney's Laptop by LeapFrog
    My daughter Lily got this for her 3rd birthday. We have always loved LeapFrog products. This was her favorite present, hands down. My 6 and 9 year olds even love it! I am really impressed by how many things it does. After playing with it for a day Lily can identify some letters and numbers. The music is great, and I LOVE that there is a high low switch, making it a quiet toy as well as a learning toy!

    A perfect laptop for your Princess!
    Our 3.5 yr old got this for Christmas and LOVES having "my own 'puter". It is easy for her to open for herself and she loves to hear her favorite characters speaking to her! She likes the activity that sounds out words as you type in letters, and gets so excited when she actually makes a word! She also really likes the counting activity. This laptop has been banged around and dropped several times and it is in perfect working condition. ... Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars A Little Disappointed
    I went out and bought this booster seat for my 21 month old daughter. My 3 year old son has a booster seat as well which is a cheaper model (still being sold), and other than being a crumb trap which has to be taken apart to be cleaned it is very useful, it gets him up high so he can sit at the table with us and it allows me to strap him in so he can not get out during meal time. However this Healthy Care Booster Seat is almost worthless. It does not elevate my daughter up high enough to eat at the table (her height is in the 90%), so I have to use the tray. But unfortunately the tray is so small, I can not fit any of my daughters child size plastic plates on it, so I have to put her food on the tray provided, which she can take apart and throw. This chair is easier to clean, but not giving me anything I need.

    5-0 out of 5 stars You will love it, I promise!
    I recently got rid of my very expensive Peg Perego high chair and replaced it with this. The high chair was impossible to clean and feeding time turned into a huge mess and left me with a major clean up job every time my 10 month old son ate. I don't know why I ever got a high chair to begin with. Just save yourself the hassle and get this booster instead. I can't think of anything bad to say about it!

    The tray fits perfect in my dishwasher and comes out looking brand new after every wash. I love the fact that the tray has 3 different positions when attaching it to the seat; on the closest setting I can get it right up next to my son's chest so that any food he drops falls onto his BIB and not into his LAP (which is what happened with the high chair, I had to change his clothes after every feeding). There are no cracks or crevices for food to fall down into. I also love the fact that it folds up into a neat little square so that I can take it with me when we go to visit Grandma. It's lightweight and takes up much less space than a full size high chair. When not in use, I just slide it under the table so you can barely see it. I love the fact that there is no cushion or seat cover to wash. This booster seat wipes off so easily, I never spend more than a minute wiping it off and it looks brand new. I wish someone had told me about this product before I wasted money on a full size high chair!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect for travel and restaurants
    This is a wonderful booster seat. My son is now 14 mo. old, and we bought it when he was around 10 mo. old. I wish I would have gotten it sooner. It is great for eating out - no touching those restaurant highchairs/boosters with all those germs. Who knows how clean those things are? Also, it gives him a tray as opposed to many restaurant booster and high chairs. I can finally put his food down and not worry about what he is touching and trying to spray Lysol on everything. It's great for travel as well. People ask us all the time where we got this, and I tell them it's a baby "must have".

    My baby is coming, but I have been baysitting for a friend with a 7 month old...so i use all my baby's things for him when he comes over...This chair is wonderful....It's very comfortable for him and very easy to clean for me. I love the simplicity of the product, yet the many ways you can use it!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Comfy, easy to clean, and convenient...
    We got this for Grandma's house. Our big 7 month old loves it! He is comfortable sitting, and enjoys being at table level. I loved how you can pop the tray into the dishwasher. Next time we go visit, I'll just pop the whole thing into the dishwasher to get any dust off it and be sure it's clean. I think we will get one for home too, although we haven't yet. I'm feeling like I need to use the big highchair we got for now - since we did spend $$ on it. I wish I'd just skipped the big chair and gotten this. Oh - and it stores away easily too if you want to tuck it away when company comes or you entertain. Love this chair. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great toy to give moms a break
    Great toy for babies. My daughter can spend one hour on the mat by herself. I also made a few adjustments for her to enjoy the toy even better by placing the mirror on top, so she can look at herself while laying down on her back. She absolutely loves it. Also, I placed the bird chime towards the end where her legs are so she can kick it since the kicking pat doesn't respond to her kicks at all. The chime makes wonderful sounds.
    The kicking pat really need to be improved. The kicking pat doesn't respond unless you kick hard at the exact spot. This kicking pat is not designed for little babies, maybe useful when baby gets older.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Anisa's Mom
    I just bought this mat this past weekend from my local Babies R Us after comparing it online with other playmats.My local Toys R Us didn't have any in stock, and I didn't want to wait for one to be shipped to me.One reason I was drawn to this one is because the mat is much bigger than a lot of the other ones.I also like the idea of snapping the sides together to form somewhat of a border around my baby.As soon as I bought it home, I couldn't wait to unpack it. I set it up, which was very easy and put my daughter, Anisa, who is 3 1/2 months old, on it.Right away she started batting at the dangling figures and kicking on the kickpad.She really likes the tiger :-).She spent about a 1/2 hour playing on this mat and was just smiling and laughing.I left her with her dad for about another 20 minutes, and when I came back, she'd fallen asleep right there on the mat.I guess she played so much, she wore herself out. Wow!

    Another thing that I like about this mat is the fact that the bars that hold the hanging figures simply unsnap from each other, lay flat and I can then change her right on the mat without having to pick her up to change her diaper somewhere else and then bring her back to play.

    I do have an issue with the kickpad.It seems to take a lot of strength and exactness for the lights to light up and to play the music.If she doesn't kick exactly on the imprint showing the ball of the foot, it doesn't light or play the music.And I've gotta say my daughter has pretty strong kicks when we are playing, but I guess they are not strong enough when she kicks this kickpad.

    The description on Amazon.com said that 3 AA batteries were included, but when I bought it at Babies R Us, there weren't any batteries included.Now I don't know if Amazon has a slightly different one or they get some extras from the manufacturer, but I think if you are paying $70 (which is quite pricey I must say), batteries should be included.After checking 3 other Total Playground Activity Mats on the shelf at Babies R Us, I gave in bought a 4-pack of AA batteries at 4 more dollars :-(.

    Overall, I really like this mat because it has some really nice features, eventhough it is a bit pricey.Aside from the kickpad issues, we really do like this toy because it is both educational and fun and it keeps Anisa well entertained and happy.

    I recently purchased this for my 3 month old nephew who loves finding nemo...i figured this has an ocean scene and bright colors ...how can i go wrong..i'll admit the price was a little steep...$70...but i figured if it keeps him occupied and happy why not...i'll have to admit , i was happy with it and he liked it...the dangling toys are great and can clip on to a carrier seat or carriage...however...warning to all moms...the mirror that comes with this product will interest your child, but is too heavy for the velcro it comes with...found that out the hard way when it fell and hit him square in his head. for what i paid, that should have been attached to the product itself...it could have spared him a lot of pain and me the agony of feeling bad all day because the toy ibought him ended up hurting him...moms its not worth it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A surprisingly different playgym
    Let me start by saying that I was very hesitant about buying this playgym because of some of the negative reviews I read.However, I really wanted some sort of playgym for my month-old daughter, and I wanted to see it in person before buying.Our local Babies R Us only had two models in the store when I went there: this one and the Carter's Butterfly Play Gym.Despite the glowing reviews I'd read about the Butterfly gym, when I saw it in person I was extremely unimpressed.In my opinion, the colors were dull and nothing about the gym excited my interest.The Discovering Water gym, however, immediately caught my eye with its vibrant colors and water-filled music box.I decided to give it a try and figured I could always return it if either my daughter or I hated it.

    I have to say I'm DELIGHTED with this gym.No, it's not perfect, but then again, what is?

    The first thing I really liked about this gym was that it's different than all the others I've seen.Every other gym seems to have the same standard design: a flat floor mat (usually square) and two overhead arches that cross in the middle in an X shape.The DW gym, however, has a rippled floor mat with flaps that can be lifted.Each flap is shaped like a different sea creature (a fish, dolphin, whale, etc) and has a cartoon picture of that animal on top and a silkscreened photo of the real animal underneath along with the name of the animal in English, French and Spanish.Even though my daughter is too young to actively lift the flaps to look underneath, at least they give her something to grab onto at floor level when she's lying on the mat.As she gets older, she can do more actual playing with the flaps themselves.I just feel that this gives the mat itself an extra layer of interactivity that's missing with the other activity gym mats out there.

    The standard X shaped overhead arches of other gyms form a square shape (four equal-sized spaces between where the arches meet the mat) and leave the gym wide open on all sides (which, I realize, some people might love).The DW gym has two overhead arcs that come together in the middle and then bow out again rather than criss-crossing.This makes more rectangular-shaped openings (two long sides and two short sides) than with other gyms.What I really like about this design is that the arches themselves have a short length of netting (like a fisherman's net) hanging down from the top.This combined with having one short end occupied by the water-filled music box really gives the gym a semi-enclosed feeling, like the inside of an undersea cave.I think it makes for a wonderful spot for imaginative play, much more so than other activity gym designs I've seen.

    The gym itself can accommodate 12 hanging toys, although only 3 are included.I think the selection of toys that are included isn't the best.The plastic fish reminds me of a dog's squeaky toy, right down to the squeaker inside, but the high-contrast colors really seem to attract my daughter's attention.The stuffed turtle is one of the Baby Einstein licensed characters - it's cute enough, but it doesn't "do" anything, and when it hangs overhead the only thing to look at from below is its plain, undecorated stomach.This is a toy best played with at eye level, unattached to the activity gym.(I bought another, slightly larger stuffed turtle toy with a mirror in the stomach to hang overhead).The third "toy" is really a set of thick plastic flashcards with sea creatures and their names on them.The pictures are very nice, but I don't really see how a young child would necessarily play with them except maybe to clink the plastic discs together (kind of like a set of plastic "baby keys"). I wound up purchasing 3 or 4 additional toys from a variety of companies to add to the gym - I object to having to spend the extra money when the gym itself cost so much, but all the activity gyms seem to be designed this way.

    The water-filled music box is a nice touch, and I like the fact that it has a motion-sensitive setting.The baby needs to actually shake the arches (by pulling a toy) to activate the box in this mode, and I wish it were a bit more sensitive (it takes quite a bit of motion to set it off).

    I really like the pat mat in the floor of the gym.This is basically a thick plastic bag filled with two-dimensional sea creatures and an ocean-looking background.The instructions say to fill it with water and empty after each use, but I don't bother emptying and refilling it and we've had no problems.Be warned, though - at first, it looks like you won't be able to fill it with water because the fill hole looks like one solid piece of plastic with a cover.My husband and I actually thought we needed to poke a hole in the plastic in order to fill it.Don't do this!The fill holes are actually so very small you can't really see them - just put the sink faucet up to the fill hole and run the water in.The mat fills pretty slowly but it does fill, and keeping the holes so tiny probably keeps the mat from leaking all over the place.We haven't had any problems with leakage at all since getting the gym.

    I also like the crescent-shaped pillow that's included with the gym.It's great for putting under your baby's head so she can look up at the hanging toys, and of course, it's perfect for "tummy time."The pat mat and liftable flaps on the mat of the gym give baby some interesting things to play with and look at at floor level during tummy time, too.

    On a side note, I took a Kick and Play Piano and tied it across the other "short" side of the gym (opposite where the water-filled music box is) and it's worked out wonderfully.This gives my daughter something to kick (she's a big kicker) plus when she does kick it, it moves the arches enough to activate the motion-sensor music box.I can either leave the piano in the "off" mode and use the music box activated by kicking, or I can leave the music box off and let my baby's kicks operate the music of the piano.

    The biggest disadvantage of this gym, in my opinion, is the price.It's definitely the most expensive gym I've found, but in lots of cases (the Gymni and the original Baby Einstein, for example), it's only more expensive by about $10.For all the "extras" that this gym provides, I think the added expense is well worth it.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Junky looking and breakable parts
    I'm glad I recieved the classic model.This one is more expensive and uglier.No baby can clearly make out the pictures or move the big ugly flaps.Also - my nephew got a hold of the water pouch and busted it.So, I quickly returned this item to the store and will never question the classic model I was originally using!

    1-0 out of 5 stars What a waste of $70
    I bought this for my newborn and got it out for him when he was 3 weeks old.He never got to use it because the water in the bubble inside the mat leaked out and got all over the place. That's not my only complaint.After really looking at the gym I realized that a BABY does not need a toy that has French and Spanish on it when they don't even know English.I do like Baby Einstein but you pay for the name brand when it comes to this one. A cheaper play gym can make your child just as happy as this on.It took it back and got the Fisher Price Flutterbye gym for $30 less.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great activity gym!
    Santa brought this for our 2 1/2 month old and she has loved it since we took it out of the bag.In the beginning she loved just staring in the mirror and seeing the lights.Now that she's 5 1/2 months old she loves batting at/tugging on the toys, talking to the baby in the mirror, and babbling along with the music.I would recommend this to anyone looking for a fun gym for their little one. ...

    Editorial Review

    The three-wheel Preschool Scooter is a good solution for toddlers who,watching older siblings, have contracted a bad case of scooter envy. In front,two 4-inch urethane wheels are placed eight inches apart for stability; at theback, there's a 3-inch wheel and a "spoon" brake just like on those metal "bigkid" scooters. This vehicle is mostly plastic, but sturdy enough for the job,with comfortable foam grips. A cleverly designed "lean-and-steer" mechanism atthe front axle makes it significantly easier to control than some three- orfour-wheel toddler scooters. This one resists the tendency to tip over whengoing around corners. --Richard Farr ... Read more

    BEST SCOOTER!!!
    I bought this scooter for my 3 year old son 3 years ago and it is still the most popular scooter in our neighborhood! All the kids, ages 2 to 9 like to ride it. It is much easier to ride with the two wheels in the front. It is an excellent first scooter and I highly recommend it!

    I completely recommend this toy!
    We purchased this scooter a couple of months ago for our 2-year old (he will be 3 in August), and after his 2nd try, he was zipping, executing turns and stops all around our cul-de-sac, just like his 10-, 11- and 12-year old siblings on their "big kid" scooters! I was amazed! This is the ONLY scooter I found anywhere with the 2 wheels in the front, instead of in the rear, and it has made a tremendous difference. Educational value comes from the fact that it has improved his large motor skills, coordination and self-confidence! I read the earlier review where someone had problems with the durability of theirs, but we have had no problems at all, and he gets pretty rough with it, at times.

    The best preschool scooter around
    My 4 year old son has been using this scooter since he was
    2 years old. He has had a great time with this scooter.It
    really turns well and is very stable for young riders.Most
    preschool scooters have the two wheels in the back but this
    scooter has the two wheels in the front making it easier
    for the young rider to scoot.My little guy can keep up
    with his older friends when they are on their two
    wheel scooters. This scooter provides a smooth ride and
    is very durable.This is the best preschool scooter around.

    We love it!!
    My son got this scooter for Christmas at age 2 1/2. Right away he had no trouble balancing and quickly learned to turn. We had tested other "little kid" scooters with the 2 wheels in the back and they were much harder to balance. He loves this and rides it every chance he gets, he has learned how to control it very well which is why I gave it 3 stars for educational value. I would have given it 5 stars for durabilty, but he has 2 big brothers that also want to ride it. When the kids over 50 pounds get on it, I can see the wheels bow, so they are not supposed to ride it.

    Great toy!!
    My two year old received this for Christmas. We just got it out since it is just warming up(April)and he loves it!! I never would have thought he would be able to ride it as well as he does. Very fun and a great introduction to a real scooter. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Radio Flyer’s Pathfinder is the SUV of little red wagons, sporting a rugged plastic body and offering tikes a luxurious amount of towing or riding space. The wagon’s convertible seats fold down for maximum storage capacity and then flip up to comfortably accommodate two children. Webbed seatbelts ensure that children don’t bounce out when riding over rough terrain. The Pathfinder’s interior also has four built-in drink holders to keep sippy cups and juice boxes secure during the ride. The extra-long handle has a large, loop grip that even kids can control and that folds under the wagon for more compact storage. Like all Radio Flyer wagons, this one has heavy axles to handle a lot of weight, heavy-duty casters for making tight turns without tipping, and durable rubber tires that provide a soft, quiet ride. The Pathfinder measures 39-1/4 inches long, 19 inches wide, and 16-1/2 inches tall. --Cristina Vaamonde ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars #1 Wagon
    My parents bought this for my son last year for Christmas. We searched and searched for the right wagon for two toddlers. After receiving this one I would recommend no other. The heavy duty RUBBER wheels (not plastic)are great on any surface. We have a huge property and it's great to go to the garden, to the beach, and for walks. The seatbelts are a must with little ones and I don't know what I would do without them!!! This item is a must have for children and parents alike!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best Wagon Out There
    This wagon is great! My 22 month old and 8 month old love it! There are seat belts so we can go across busy roads without anyone escaping! The wheels roll beautifully and the cup holders are perfect. I would recommend this wagon to anyone looking at all the different ones out there! My older son can pull my younger son (with supervision of course) and feel like a big boy. The wagon is sturdy and smooth so there is no worry about the little one!

    We bought this wagon for my son for christmas last year and he was only 4 months old. Once he learned to sit well on his own we would take him for walks in it and when it was time to go inside he would cry. He absoulty loves it. Very easy to put together and wheels turn great. Easy to pull. Highly recommended.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The BEST Wagon!!
    I just bought this for my grandson and it is AWESOME! Like one mom said the seatbelts are wonderful - I have not seen another wagon with seatbelts and being 11 months old and learning to walk he is always standing up! Now I don't have to keep turning around to check on him. Everything about this wagon is perfect - the handle is long enough to pull without having to bend over; the wheels make pulling SO easy (one review said they had problems with the wheels getting stuck- not me!) and we go off road adventuring too!! - neat cupholders for his bottle - cool storage compartment for all his neat little finds along the way - WE LOVE IT! You have to go get one - you will not be sorry! It is the best investment yet as far as toys are concerned. THANK YOU RADIO FLYER!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best Wagon Ever!
    I was searching for the perfect wagon for my daughter's 2nd Birthday. We decided to purchase this one. I love the fact that it has rubber wheels for a quiet ride. I also love the fact that the seats fold down to make a flat surface. That made it great for towing all of our gear into the zoo, such as our coolers, bags, etc., and then when my daughter fell alseep we layed a blanket on top and it was a perfect place for her to rest. While she enjoyed her ride in the wagon, we were able to strap her in with the seatbelts so she wouldn't try getting out while pulling the wagon. Great price for a great wagon! ... Read more

    In the bright, cheerful colors that Sassy has become famous for, this set of miscellaneous playthings and teethers is sure to capture baby's interest and attention. While the eye-catching colors and shapes, are sure to draw baby's eye, the toys in this set also come in a variety of textures and shapes, so that baby can investigate how each one feels in her hand and, inevitably, in her mouth. Soft, flexible rubber parts on many of the toys make them just right for a little playful gnawing when baby is teething, while other toys in the set come with smoother plastic parts that have been rounded off to prevent injury. --Chris Burns ...

    You get a lot for the price
    We bought this set for our then 1 month old son for Christmas. Now that he's almost 7 months old, he plays EXCLUSIVELY with these toys. They are adorable, fun, easy to grasp( the only exception are the theething toys, that are a little bit heavy with the water inside). I have to say though: the toys we got are a little different from the ones I see in the picture here, but I bet these are great too - Sassy makes great baby toys. For the price you pay there are so many of them, that I've decided to give them to my baby one at a time, according to his age. Some of them are still in the box. We use the links to attach toys to his stroller or crib. The set makes a great gift too, especially for multiple babies. I gave it to my cousin's twins: they can share and there's plenty for both of them. All around a good product, highly recommended.

    3-0 out of 5 stars warning for the babies who are theething
    the toys are cute and great for the baby to play with. the only drawback are the colorful teether toys. when the baby gets few teeth and bites the teether toys, the paint comes off!!!!!!!!!!!! unfortunately, all the teether toys had to be thrown away. babie's safety is more important!!!!

    3-0 out of 5 stars Best Gift Ever!
    We received this as a gift when my daughter was born. She's now one year old, and still plays with these toys. This was by far the best gift we received, and I am now buying it for friends' babies.

    3-0 out of 5 stars I'm a copy cat!
    My sister gave this toy to my newborn daughter. Now I consider it a must for friends' babies. I just ordered it for my friends twins. There are plenty to share, and 2 rubber duckies!

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Must-Have
    This set of toys is a definite 'must-have' for all babies! I cannot beleive the amount of use we have gotten out of these toys. It seems that everytime my 8-month-old daughter is reaching for one of her favorite toys, I realize it is something from this set. One word of caution--even though the octopus is supposed to be a bath toy, I would not use it as such. I believe the water gets trapped inside and gets moldy. It is a fun toy outside of the bath anyway. ... Read more
