Jumping Jacks Taffy Sandal (Toddler/Little Kid)
Jumping Jacks Taffy Sandal (Toddler/Little Kid)
Price: $24.95 - $36.95

4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful shoes but questionable durability, April 3, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Got these in white for my 3 year old and they were an instant hit. They are very soft and required no break in time. The leather is very pliable and has a shiny finish which makes it easier to wipe clean, especially with white shoes. The velcro closure means super easy on and off. I thought these were great, but after a few weeks of wear the surface of the leather has developed deep cracks in quite a few places, including the heel strap, and where the straps attach to the sole. I also bought this brand in the fisherman style and you can see that the leather on those is much thicker than on these. I wonder if there is a difference in materials between different colors. Even with the durability issues, these are very comfortable and practical, I would buy them again if the price was right.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worthless!, February 2, 2015
Worthless! Does this stuff even do anything? I tried this out on denim and then cotton jersey materials and could not get the fabric to adhere. Tried varying quantities of glue, still not really working. I think I will stick with Fabric-Tac from now on.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great quality, but visually boring, December 17, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This puzzle has the typical Ravensburger quality with thick, sturdy pieces and a perfect fit. The floor size is great for active preschoolers. The fire truck is a fun theme, but overall the scale of the truck and the large expanse of the rather plain background is kind of boring and doesn't encourage much replay. My kids tend to leave this on the shelf in favor of other puzzles. From now on, I try to find puzzles with lots of details and busy scenes to keep the kids coming back.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect puzzle, great quality!, December 17, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
We love this puzzle so much, we just bought another one for a friend. This really is a perfect preschooler puzzle with great imagery and scale, thick quality pieces and a perfect fit all contained in a sturdy storage box (withstood the climbing attempts of my 1 year old). Every piece has some easily recognizable features so that it's not too frustrating for a preschooler to complete on their own. The illustration is bright and colorful and the background is richly detailed with various fairly tale characters like Three Little Pigs, Goldilocks, Hansel and Gretel, Giant in the beanstalk, Aladdin, Humpty-Dumpty, etc. It's a lot of fun to identify and discuss the fairy tale characters and stories and is a great way for the parents to get involved. This puzzle offers a lot of appeal for replay and can grow with the child as their knowledge of literary fairy tales expands.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cute, durable shaper sorter with typical Hape quality, December 9, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Hape Color and Shape Sorter (Toy)
I'm a fan of Hape toys for their quality wood products and affordable durability. This puzzle has 9 variable sized pieces in different colors. All the pieces are good sized and baby friendly. The wood is smooth and finished and the paint holds up well. Unfortunately my kids haven't been that interested in playing with this puzzle. I've put it away for rainy day fun and hope that the novelty will entice them to play with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Durable, grippy holder, December 9, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Works as intended. I'm using it on my large Lodge cast iron and it fits nicely with a little wiggle room for easy on and off. Unlike my previous sleeve, it hasn't melted or burned near the base after extended use. For general use, it works well to insulate the handle. Those that expect for this to fit like a glove or expect to handle a heavy cast iron with just with the use of a handle grip have unrealistic expectations. This thing is especially useful for covering the handle after using the skillet in the oven (The grip can't be used in the oven)

5.0 out of 5 stars This thing improved my life, so quick and easy!, December 9, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This has been a great little gadget for our household. It's lifesaver for hectic mornings when all you want is a cup of coffee or tea and be out the door without waiting for a conventional kettle to heat up or wondering all day if you left the burner on. Boiling time is very quick and efficient. We've had our model for a couple of years and it's still going strong with no issues. Mineral buildup is treated with vinegar soaks and it's good as new. The size is perfect for a couple or small family. I've purchased this for family members and overall, this particular model seems to be the best reviewed electric kettle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great sounding toddler instrument, December 9, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
We got this for our collection of musical instruments and very happy with the sound and quality of this xylophone. All the notes are spot on (unlike our Hape xylophone) and rounded edges and sturdy construction make it a great toddler toy that works well with an older child. The paint hasn't shown any wear after 6 months of play. The only thing that is less ideal is the mallet, which feels a little cheap and too flexible and the kids prefer to use their hohner plastic drumsticks for play instead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super cute and goes everywhere, December 9, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
There are so many cute designs to choose from but we happily settled on Planes and Trucks. The lunchbox is large and big enough for a sizeable lunch. I use it to haul snacks and food for 2 toddlers. The construction is great and I love the fact that it's PVC free and food safe. There were no weird odors to the plastic. It wipes up easily and keeps it's shape. There is a mesh partition inside, an elastic loop with velcro closure and a outer zippered compartment. Because of it's large size fitting it into a preschooler backpack may be a challenge and we mostly just carry it free. Great lunchbox and usually great pricing from Amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, trendy blank cards, December 9, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These are really lovely blank cards with a rustic modern design of forest animals, which are very trendy these days. There are four different designs contained in a sturdy box with a hinged lid and magnetic closure. The card stock has a nice weight and feel and this set is a great value for the number and quality of cards. The cards are sized 4"x5" and are perfect for a brief message.
