I think if she was interested in it she probably would have tore most of the things off of it by now.

The description makes it seems like there's sooooo many things to do with this book when, in reality, there's not much to do but read it.

I have to admit I was a little suprised when I received the item in the mail because it was very different from what I expected.

A friend just gave this to my 2.5 year old boy. He loves it. He sits down with mommy and we go through the tote looking for all his favorites. He slides the credit card and taps out letters on the computer. He also very much likes the dry erase board. Because they are all familiar (albeit forbidden) items, it is great fun to have them to himself. It is a great book when we have to wait at the airport or the carwash.

What a nice gift for a little girl. The down side it is made all of board so in the shipping process the bottle water and other pieces that stick up bend and break off...
I wish they made this for a boy- perhaps daddy's messanger bag or computer bag....

I bought this for my son to use in the car so he would not get bored. I have decided to wait until he is older because of the small parts. I would not buy this for someone under 3. It looks like it's going to be a lot of fun though.

I recently bought this book for my 3 y/o son to take on long car rides. He loved the dry erase marker. He enjoys playing with the clock and the number/letter wheel. It's a little stiff so he has a hard time keeping it open to write in the car. He can be rough with toys but has not ripped apart anything in this book - yet! We haven't read the text yet as it has only been used in the car, but I haven't found the items to be hugely gender specific (keys, wallet, computer, cell). I'm sure that there are other items that are gender specific but then again it is a Mommy's tote. This wouldn't stop me from purchasing it for a boy again. Since we travel on weekends a lot my son is used to packing up our tote bags with various items. He enjoys having his own tote in the car that he can play with. I can see this coming in handy in a restaurant as well.

We bought this for my daughter's first Birthday. We knew she was too young for it, but I had been seeing it for a while in bookstores and I really wanted to make sure we had it in case it went out of print. at 1, she was still to destructive to really let her play with it. Now at 16 months I bring it out on occasion for supervised play. She LOVES it and is really good and not destroying anything. her favorite part is the pull out laptop. Sometimes when I am working on my laptop, we will get this out and she will open the laptop and "type" on it with both hands, just like mom, and say "Click Click" and "Mommy!" She loves to look at pictures and name items in the book like "brush" and "comb" and "Phone" and "Clock." She loves the keys on the front and thinks the "Sock" on the back is funny. She also recognizes items like "Cookie" and "Mouse" and "Shoe" "Book" and "Apple" I think it can only get more interesting with age, as she realizes that she has her own replica of mom's purse- and notices items like the wallet, credit card, and iPod (just like mom!) Right now it's great for quiet play and I can see this coming in handy at church or in a Dr. office when you want her to sit still and entertain herself without something that makes noise. I recommend this to anyone!

P.S. I DO remove the wipe off marker from the tote. She's WAY to young to have that!

My Mommy's Tote is most likely to appeal to little girls; the text of the book draws comparisons between a little girl and her mommy.

"My mommy always smells nice. Not like me." Is written beside a bottle of perfume.
"My mommy likes to draw. But she is not a good artist like me." Appears beside the dry-erase drawing pad.

In our family however, the appeal is not to be found in the text, but in the tactile, motion-filled experience of playing with the book itself.

Now there is one cautionary note that needs to be made. Careful attention should be made to the publisher's warning on the packing materials. Do NOT let children under the age of three play with this book. The eager fingers of toddlers will quickly set to work ripping off the lifting flaps, the opening cell phone, and other doo-dads they get their grippers on. Yes, one day the book was down and my two-year old had her way with it while I was washing dishes, my back turned. Sadly it is now in need of intensive repairs.

Our family spends a lot of time on the road, as we live in the country. This is the perfect traveling companion for a child, ages 5-10. Instead of handing your child your own purse to wreak chaos in during nerve-wracking repetitions of, "Are we there yet?" this unique book will satisfy antsy fingers and curious minds.

I got one of these for my daughter and one for my niece. It wasn't as much fun as it looked online. Things tore off of it and it just wasn't that durable or interesting.

My daughter really likes this book. It's a bit bulky, so we don't take it with us outside the house, especially with two removeable items. We've already torn one of the pictures off, so it's not horribly durable. There are lots of things my daughter loves to look at and play with, but she still likes my purse the best, which I was hoping this would help with that.
