~PopATot Review & Giveaway~

Super Duper Christmas Ideas!!!!


Somebody grab the baby!!!

Ever been at the park, the lake, the beach, a family reunion, camping, or just in the yard or in the house and heard those words?

I have, and I am, usually the one yelling them. My kids were, and now my grandchildren are, total escape artists. Put them in a play pen and they climb up the side and out they go. No matter what I am doing it seems I am always chasing a kid or two.

But that all ended the other day when I got a PopATot in the mail. When given the choice I actually picked pink because the new baby coming will be a girl and I thought I would get more use out of it, but I put Zeke in it to try it out, thinking that since he is almost 2 and a big 2 at that he would be out of it in a minute. And although he can scale a wall and get onto the trampoline by flying it seems (no matter what I move he still manages it somehow) he could not get out of the PopATot. I even left him there for several minutes after he asked to get out because I knew he would try harder if he really wanted out and he could not do it!! Then I gave him a magazine and he relaxed back and took some more relaxation time just laying back and being all chill.
Yes~~ finally some peace at our house from the little rug rat when I go to the bathroom~ no more fingers under the door, and most important, when the baby comes and we are spending the spring and summer outside at the exact time she will be starting to crawl and get into everything, I will have peace of mind for a few minutes when I walk around to see what the other little beasties are up to.

Now when I put Zeke in the PopATot I didn't attach any toys because I wasn't really planning on using it for more than a minute before he crawled out of it, but the awesome way it is set up or made, whichever way you prefer it, stopped him from being able to. He loved the feeling it gave him and said he was "rocking" or "walking" it is kind of hard to decide sometimes, but either way, he liked it and bounced around in it for a good 10 minutes before he realized he had no toys to play with. This being my point I didn't give him any and he did his best to climb out and not only was he staying put, he didn't come anywhere near tipping over or being able to move it around. How cool is that~ a stationary 2 year old!!

Sorry about the bad picture quality~~ I have a Nikon D90 on my Christmas wish list so we will see what Santa thinks about how much he likes me ;-)

The PopATot has several little attachments places to add your childs own favorite toys onto so they can't play the throw and fetch game with you every 2 minutes and it has 2 places for bottles, sippy's or snacks. The bottom of the PopATot is fully covered canvas material so your baby wont get their feet all yucky in whatever surface you have set them on outside and makes a great crumb catcher for inside use and the whole thing can just be squirted off because it is completely washable. And one of the best features in my opinion, especially if you are taking it anywhere besides home to use, it folds up to the size of a fold up chair and fits in a little carrying bag. No more having to shove in a huge play pen or exerciser. Perfect for vacations, grandma's house, or an outside baby seat any place.
I cannot even imagine how nice it will be come springtime when we are painting and doing spring cleaning and we have a comfy place for the baby to hang out. It even looks like she can get in a comfy position if she falls alseep instead of doing the jello neck- head bob thing. I'm excited to have spring come so we can find out all the uses we can for it.
I am also thinking of giving several women I know who are pregnant one for their baby shower, it will make a perfect gift for Christmas too and I am quite sure it isn't something they would want to return. They also have very fast and free shipping to the lower 48 states.
Go on over to PopATot and take a look to see which one you like best and you can buy one there.
The ONLY bad thing I can even think of (if you can even call it bad) is that it would be great to have a few more color choices, but I am sure that will come as the company grows and as it is there is something for boys and girls already so it isn't really a negative, just a personal preference.

Too late for the giveaway, but these look like a great idea! I run an in-home daycare, and anything that lets me put a kid down and still have them happy is allright by me - but when everyone goes home for the day, I'm left with all these HUGE things all over the place. This would be an awesome solution. . . really clever!
