A friend recommended this company to me. I got the play mat and was generally happy with it and it was high quality. I thought the tent would be fun, but my baby was barely interested in sitting inside under it at that point so I got less use than I thought at that stage. Also some of the sections of the mat my baby rarely showed interest in. The black and white cards and mirror were the highlights, and we hung rings from the center that were the biggest hit. I wish the play mat came with a chain of rings.
The first boxes had some overlap with the play mat so I bought 2 of the later ones. He played a lot with nearly all the toys. Some of them got a lot of play, or he would go back to them later. Some of the boxes had one or two items only that I wanted, so I joined a facebook group and bought them used. There is a huge resale value on these toys if you are worried about the cost. I haven’t sold any of mine yet, but you can definitely recoup a bunch of the cost through said groups.
I also bought the soft stacking baskets and the car from their target line. The baskets were great since he was into the throwing stage, and these were completely soft to throw. The car he didn’t show as much interest in.
I also got the tunnel — pretty good, my son liked it but didn’t use it as much as I thought. I liked that it is organic cotton although I wish it was washable.
Finally, I got the block set. My son does like it. The shape sorter is kinda weird, only certain blocks have holes for them so you need to separate out the ones that match and only give those or there will be frustration. My son loved the bead threading, but then would swing them around, and since they’re heavy blocks, it turned into a weapon. So I had to hide that for a while. The blocks only fit inside the box if you do it perfectly, and my son first was upset the box wouldn’t close. So I also hid some blocks for a while so it would close.
Making the books available to buy individually. A lot of them look interesting and I bought some earlier ones on a facebook group. Would have preferred buying them directly. Some people on the group are really selling them for way more than they should be, like $30 a book, so this seems like a missed opportunity.
The boxes used to come with more toys. Lovevery said they would rather focus on fewer items that are better, but at this price point, some of the earlier versions definitely seem more worth the cost.
