Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

I really liked the colours and the textures of the wheel and the fact that most of the components moved and it wasn't just the wheel. I was also really liked the fact the wonder wheel is used to assist in eyesight which is important for me as my daughter has a squint, so if this product is able to help this is a bonus.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

This product has made my life easier as a mum as when I am cooking the dinner my daughter keeps herself entertained looking at all the aspects of the wheel including moving the rings on the base as well as twisting and feeling the different textures.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

The only thing i would think would enhance this product would be that the suction pad had a locking mechanism so it wouldn't be able to moved as sometimes my daughter is able to pull it off the highchair if she uses water or food substances on her plate as a lubricant!

I was impressed with the Sassy Wonder Wheel as it's bright and colourful, fun and useful. However, what surprised me the most is that it really captures the attention of my son. He is mesmerised by the spinning wheel and has occasionally reached out to touch it. Although this wouldn't have been a product I would have considered buying before, now I have it, I would definitely recommend it to friends. It's very child friendly.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

Although the toy is meant for highchairs, because it has a suction pad I have used it on lots of other surfaces while he is playing. And because the toy is hypnotic, it buys me time to go and do chores, while leaving my baby to play. However, he can move on from it quickly, if there isn't someone there to spin the wheel for him, so it is only a short-term distraction. Another aspect I like about the Sassy Wheel is that it's light and therefore easy to bring to friends' houses with you.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

The toy is intended to use on highchairs, however I found it too distracting to have around feeding time. When you are busy trying to get a baby to eat, it doesn't need any other distractions. But, the toy is great and we found use for it on other surfaces, especially on the floor during tummy time, I therefore think this should be marketed as a more versatile toy, than just for highchairs.

The Wonder Wheel is simply fantastic - it has been a firm favourite with my 6-month-old from the moment I took it out of the packaging (which is, happily, minimal).  It has great colours, plenty of activities in one compact toy and, unlike many other toys on the market, has a really pleasant sound made by the coloured beads moving inside the wheel.  It's secured to a table via a strong suction cup, and doesn't take up too much space on the high chair. It looks and feels like a high-quality product, and this is reflected in the price tag, but it's well worth the money.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

The wonder wheel really helps out when my son is in his highchair and needs entertaining for a few minutes - it means that I can prepare meals, or do the washing up, and he's entertained and contained!

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

Nothing - it's great!

I love this toy! And so did my baby! It has a large sucker at the bottom, which means it can be attached to practically anything. We mainly used it on her high chair and she loved spinning it around again and again, watching the colours and hearing the noise as it span. It kept her amused time and time again and she never bored of it. It appears to be extremely well built and is a cleverly designed little thing. Baby also enjoyed poking at the three little spinning items within the outer circle. It certainly made meal times more enjoyable for us both. Baby loved it so much in fact that at times I had to remove it from her tray because she was completely distracted by it! It was really handy to be able to stick it onto the side of the kitchen unit and our wooden floor - hours and hours of fun!

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

I found it really useful in providing some entertainment for my baby, meaning I could leave her happily playing in the safety of her high chair whilst I was preparing her meals. I also loved the flexibility of the product, being able to stick it to anything in the house to entertain my daughter. I would imagine that it would be the perfect toy to take out to a restaurant with you...not noisy, can't be thrown on the floor time and time again and amazingly good at holding her interest!

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

I wouldn't change a thing about this product. I love it! I only wish I had found it sooner.
