It is so portable my little boy loves it. It has bright colours and lots of sounds. It is very easy to use and clean. You can take it with you wherever you go or pop it on to your highchair or any flat surface. It is strong and durabauble. I love the colours and the little honey pot and bear. It is value for money.

Very strong and longlasting as it has been dropped and thrown around. It can be taken anywhere with you or put on any flat surface that you would like. It is very good value for money and worth every penny lots and lots of fun. I love it.

What changes would you make to this product?

It could be made a bit bigger for toddlers. It could have some sounds when you turn the bear, bees and honeypot around and maybe some nursery rhyme music that came be turned on and off like some toys do. Other then that it is a great toy.

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

Being a multi-use product saves on making multiple purchases, makes it very portable and a great value asset for any mum. The toy is bright, colourful and my child was instantly attracted to it and thoroughly enjoyed spinning it round and exploring the vibrant features. I loved the different patterns in particular the black and white stripes which make it really interesting to look at and the rattle noise was gentle but yet made it really stimulating when spun. I loved the fact the toy moves with the pulling motion. As a stand alone toy it is easy for little hands to grab and the array of textures make an excellent teether. I loved the honey bee and bear theme I thought this was very cute.

How did this product make your life easier?     

It is stimulating and engaging and it buys me much needed time to get my child into the highchair prior to dinner being served safe in the knowledge they are entertained. As a highchair toy the suction base is simple to secure and can withstand a lot of pulling and tugging. Previous highchair toys I have used I have spent most of dinner time re-fixing the toy to the tray which is frustrating. This model however does not pose that problem and means I can just get on with serving my little one dinner rather than worrying about the toy coming off.

Would you choose this product to win?

I really was impressed by the overall attractiveness of the product and it's ability to engage and stimulate my child. The suction base is excellent and easy to use by simply pressing down which I have not found with similar competitor products which have involved securing by screwing or turning the toy or base and which in turn easily disconnect with the surface. It is overall an extremely high quality product and I feel it will be very durable with rough handling. I loved the fact that the well thought through design of this high chair toy allows it to be used as a separate toy and teether by removing it from the suction base which is easy to do and makes it a great value, multi-use item which is always a good thing for mums.

What changes would you make to this product?

The toy has wonderful intricate textural features for babies to explore with little hands and mouths however many of the components as expected with any texture have grooves. Additionally there are plastic join lines. The difficulty this poses is that in particular being a high chair toy and plastic components is that once sticky hands have played with it, it is hard to clean and make hygienic again with ease. I would therefore be keen to explore a more seamless product or textures to be incorporated but in a manner that still allows for easy cleaning.
