Sassy Grasp and Glow Developmental Teether Toy
Sassy Grasp and Glow Developmental Teether Toy
Price: $9.40
7 used & new from $6.95

4.0 out of 5 stars Great toy - but watch how you clean it, January 22, 2011
My 4 and a half month old was mesmerized by this at Babies R us, so I bought it for him. The light is bright and it spins around - definitely gets his attention.

However, if you go to wash it, I would recommend only wiping it clean. I very quickly dunked it in the soapy water when I was washing his bottles and noticed water had gotten inside the other ball (the one that is clear with the bug/mirror inside.)

Now that I know, I will be sure to just wipe it - it's a great toy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than "the mommy hook", January 22, 2011
and it's cheaper too!

I got two of these at Target. I originally had one mommy hook and wanted to get another one so that I could use it to hook the diaper bag onto the stroller. The mommy hook was out of stock every time I went into the store, and the other day I noticed that it had been replaced by these hooks.

WOW! What a difference! I love how much easier it is to open and close the clip because of the little finger "hooks" and it works great for my diaper bag (which is the blue Carter's bag with the two straps on the side for hanging it from strollers, shopping carts, etc.) The clip type hooks on the bag are a pain to open and close and can't be done one handed, but these clips make all the difference!

5.0 out of 5 stars This works great!, January 22, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I followed some advice from other moms and actually took the liners out when they were frozen and put them into larger ziplock bags so that I could reuse the freezer caps.

To do that, you have to freeze it with the lid at the top (unlike in the picture where the lid is at the bottom.)

I also liked using these for dry formula powder in the diaper bag. I would use the bottom ring and the nipple and lid together with a liner, fill it with powdered formula and then "collapse" the liner to take up less room. This way I could pack just one of the plastic bottles and reuse it while I was out and just pop the ring onto the bottle the next time I had to feed.

I bought this for my husband - he has a little "toy" collection on his desk at work. I don't know that I would recommend this for a child to actually play with, but it's nice for display.

3.0 out of 5 stars colors much brighter, January 22, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
First I will say that I think the curtain is beautiful. I live in Fla, and most of my bathroom is done in a natural, tropical theme (neutral colors, natural shells, starfish, etc.) I wanted one item to have some really bright color, but not be obnoxious and "fake" looking. This was perfect for that.

However - the picture on here and even on the package is actually very different than the product itself. It is almost like the picture is of the backside of the curtain (which is much more muted) than the front side.

Even though the colors are much brighter than shown, it is still a pretty curtain.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great stroller and carseat, January 22, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I took a friend's advice and got this system for my car and then a bigger car seat for my husband's car so that when our son got older, we'd only have to replace one carseat at a time.

I love this stroller, and the carseat is easy to get in and out of it.

It's not too heavy for me to lift the stroller in and out of the trunk, and the seat itself isn't too bad either.

The system seems pretty sturdy and is easy to wipe clean.

My son is turning five months old in a few days and I use this almost every day. I love it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice - but be patient with application, January 22, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This does look beautiful on my son's nursery wall. It was not that easy to get up there, however. BE PATIENT! It took quite a while - about 45 minutes. The writing sticks to the paper - so I found that I would have to kind of start the process by picking a little bit at each letter with my fingernails and then once that letter or grouping was on the wall to actually tear that part of the paper backing off to make it easier to work with.

I would try this again, because it does look beautiful, but now I know what I'm getting myself into so I'd be prepared to have the time and patience to apply it properly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really helps when having to switch bags!, January 22, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I got tired of having to carry a purse and a diaper bag, or trying to take things out of my purse and stuffing them into the pockets of the diaper bag. This is perfect! I can put it in my purse for when I'm going to work or somewhere without the baby, and then if I'm out with him, I can stick it in the diaper bag so that I don't have to carry it and a separate purse and then when I get home, everything is together and I don't have to worry about things being left behind in either bag and being without something important.
