I bought this pool for my six month old. I figured the beach water would be too cold and that water would warm up in this pool and she could cool off in it without freezing. The mushroom shade is perfect, she sits right under the dark spot so she's not in the sun. It's sturdy and not too difficult to blow up the old fashioned way. It even comes with little blow up toys. This is a good buy!! Loved it!
We used this pool last year when my daughter was about 13 months. She loved it! The inflateable bottom allowed for extra padding and the archway with three hanging stars added great entertainment. She also enjoyed the ring toss - the squeek of the poles made her giggle. Although another reviewer says her pool quickly got a hole when put on her deck, ours was never punctured even though it was used on our concrete porch. Overall, this pool is a great size, great buy (ours was $6 at Walmart), and will probley last this year with our now 22 month old and 10 month old daughters.
I bought this for my 18 month old son to use on our deck. It is great for this kind of set up since it has an inflatable bottom. He loves this pool! The sides are high enough to keep water in, but low enough for him to climb in and out safely and independently. He also loves this pool inside. When we are not using it, we have it inside filled with a few stuffed animals and he dives into it and rolls around in it. It would be great with balls in it for inside use as well. Seems pretty sturdy - I've only blown it up once and it has stayed inflated for about 3 weeks now. He plays in it everyday, mostly inside and it has been great. Well worth the $9.99 I spent!
I bought this base for our second car - and it is just as easy to install as the base that came with my Eddie Bauer travel system. LATCH is so incredibly easy to install and use, so it is safer for my son (no mistakes setting it up!)

Try to hang the monkeys on the branches but watch out, balance needs to be established and maintained on both sides! This toy helps to develop a child's mathematical skills by getting them to calculate the correct distance required in order to keep the monkeys balanced. (Balancing Monkeys made from rubber wood (Hevea Brasiliensis) from trees that have ceased yielding latex.) Ages 3 and up.
I think the visual representation of counting, by color, number, and the precision of matching the number to the "cut" of the pegs is extremely valuable in teaching young children the concept of number value. My little one is still a bit young, but loves to try to take the pieces off. One of the pieces has cracked after minimal play, however.

I bought this for my sister who is expecting to deliver within the next few weeks. Having had a baby myself I know what items you really need for a little one and this gift set has it all. I chose this set over the others listed because it includes more of the basic needed items and less frills. Rubber duckies are cute and all but they're not practical.
A new born is more concerned with their diaper rash and with the yellow plastic toy float around in the water. This set has shampoo, body wash, baby powder, baby oil, que-tips, and desitin diaper rash cream, AND a rubber duckie! It's even packaged in a cute re-usable bucket. My sister loved it, I would have loved buying all the necessary items together instead of separately too when I was expecting.
My kid loves dropping his coins into the bank. Mommy loves that it adds the coins so she knows when its worthwhile to haul to the bank. Although, I swear sometimes depending on how you drop in the coin, it records the wrong amount. Works 99% of the time with correct coin recognition - its just when the 3 year old gets a little rammy with dropping the coins - definitely say more user error than machine error.
Slip your coins into the automatic counter slot on top, and watch this plastic jar count all your money. This "smart" bank automatically adds the value of each coin to your total, so you can track your money as it grows toward your next financial goal. Unscrew the top at any time to take money out. Requires two AA batteries, not included. Measures 6.5" tall.
