I saw this on an advert and just had to have it as it looked so much fun, it was simple enough to put together it took about ten minutes in total. We bought this for Tillie just before her 1st Birthday and it is only since she turned 16 months that it has actually interested her. She hasn't been very interested in sitting on toys but she now runs into her room leaps on it bounces for about 30 seconds then jumps off and carries on playing.

I like the idea of the product and think that some children would get a lot of use out of it, it wasn't quite what I expected, I think I would get the black and white zebra rather than the pink one if I had the opportunity to buy it again as I feel the colours are not as striking as they could be, but that isn't really too much of an issue.
I am always slightly wary of her falling off but so far she has had nothing more than a couple of near misses when she has been a bit over excited. I thought she would like it more than she does, maybe that will come in time.
Perhaps if it wasn't so plastic looking and had a few more features than it could be more appealing. The handle bars do have a toy either side but they spin round and that is all they do which I feel is slightly boring for a toddler who likes to explore and needs a bit more stimulation.

Advantages - good design
Disadvantages - takes up quite a big space and isn't in the easiest shape to store and cannot be folded away, not very entertaining

Ratings out of 5
I would give this product 2.5

"Your baby has Laryngomalacia"!!!????

I will explain a little about my labour, maybe a detailed explanation might go up in the future but lets put it like this, it was not nice and after suffering from an Irritable Uterus throughout my pregnancy followed by a 42 hour labour and a scary ending but I got the beautiful Tillie Bean so was worth every second! Basically the cord was wrapped around her neck twice and right round her body. She had the hiccups so much during pregnancy and I am wondering if this does have a connection to the problem which was about to be revealed!

I remember a few nights after Tillie was born hearing a strange noises when she was breathing, I had to stay in hospital for a few nights as I needed a blood transfusion, I buzzed the nurse to check about her breathing but was told 'it is just mucous on her lungs it is very common it won't last long'.
Even as a new mum I thought that this wasn't the case, but who was I to argue.
This 'mucous' was getting louder and louder and by …

When I was at school, we didn't have fidget spinners..... we made these

I was sat with Tillie earlier chatting about school. I told her there wasn't such a thing as fidget spinners when I was at school..... instead we made these...... BUT WHAT ARE THEY CALLED? Do they even have a name?

I could easily remember how to make it!
Did you put colours and numbers on yours? I think I did the colours and the numbers the wrong way round. It was close to bedtime so I made one in a rush and told her we would make some more tomorrow.... Any suggestions for challenges would be gratefully received!

Also if anyone knows what they are called please let me know!
