A good camera is worth its weight in gold

Photos are the most prevalent way of keeping memories; who writes diaries now days? Very few people, and there are even fewer readers out there. Sure, we have a scrapbook where we keep notes and write a sentence or two about the milestones our babies and...

Clay Impression Kit for Babies and Children

A fixed idea in my wife's mind was making a cast impression of our sons feet. This was a couple of years ago and she was shopping for the perfect kit. She had found one in a local mall, it even contained frames for the soon to be made pieces of...

BabyBjorn Bouncer

There's two things I must say upfront. The first thing is that I love the BabyBjorn Bouncer and I believe it is a lifesaver. The other thing is that I urge you not to buy it for your kid before you test it out because not all children love it...

An AA and AAA battery recharger is one of those pieces of equipment you'll find extremely valuable if you have a kid who loves to play with battery powered toys because they are the most common batteries you'll need for toys. Sure, you can use the...

Us parents are a market group, we are targets in fact. To be completely honest you are a target right now on this site were we recommend various items we have used and still do. This however does not change the honest intention of us trying to give you the best possible opinion on products, even if the opinion is that an item is not worth your attention and your money. We will never review items on an order basis (gifts by manufacturers) but instead focus only on the items we have bought because we liked them or needed them.

As a target we are constantly bombarded with various products that promise to provide the best possible environment and conditions for our child to grow in when in fact we don’t need most of them and we’re just being manipulated and emotionally blackmailed into buying overprices and over-hyped products.

The blunt philosophical truth is that you the parent are the environment and the very conditions for your child’s growth. The pieces of equipment you will buy for your child are just tools, items which serve a purpose. Do not let anyone make you feel like you’re a bad parent because you haven’t bought something and be careful you do not create a self image that you’re the best parent because you have all the gadgets; it’s not a competition.

It is very difficult not to fall in this trap, we’ve all been there or are going to get there once in a while (it’s the world we live in), because not only are the marketing experts constantly pitching at us, so are other parents. Why they do this is a topic in itself. What always rings true are the wise words that what you own ends up owning you… so be careful!

I hope the articles above help you make a good decision.

Your comments are encouraged so please share your story and advice with us on these items… if there’s something better out there, we want to know 🙂
