Product to Review: PopATot
Product Information: Evan and Stacy, parents of 5 young active children created PopATot in 2007. As avid outdoor enthusiasts, they quickly learned the value of purchasing child care products that would stand up to tough treatment, were convenient to use, and safe for kids to use. Quality and safety define their expectations. If they won't use a product with their own family, they won't sell it.
Here in Stacy's own words is how PopATot came to life!
The PopATot idea was conceived on a camping trip. Our daughter was about 6 months old, she wasn't happy in the stroller or pack-n-play. But, we had to put her somewhere while we set up camp, started a fire, and cooked dinner. We had an exersaucer at home that she loved, but we didn't have the room to bring it in the van/camper. She liked the exersaucer at home for the fact that should could sit up and look around in her exersaucer.
That evening by the camp fire the idea popped in our heads that someone should come up with a product that parents can easily take anywhere to safely contain, entertain as well as give their baby freedom and independance to move, jump, play with their toys, get their own drink and feed themselves with snacks. Literally, by light from the campfire we brainstormed and sketched out what this product should look like on a brown paper sack.
We arrived home from the trip on Sunday and immediately started working on building a prototype. Our baby used the original prototype that spring/summer. Since then we have made many prototypes, hired a professional baby products designer to help us make it even safer, after over 18 months of work we finally had a working prototype that met our expectations.
When first conceived, it was a product to keep our baby away from the campfire, to keep her out of the dirt. After a full year of using the PopATot it is difficult to find a situation where it doesn't come in use. So, we always keep one in the back of the van.
We immediately gave our traditional baby activity center to GoodWill, because the PopATot is all we need. It literally folds up in seconds once the two safety locks are unclipped. It can easily be stored out of site, if your wanting less clutter in your home. I can take it upstairs, downstairs, or into another room without hitting the walls. I have used it while unloading the dishwasher to keep the baby from the sharp knives and while doing laundry to keep her off the basement floor. My baby can be right by me when I'm working. I also use it outside when grilling to keep the baby away from the hot grill, while the older kids are riding trikes and bikes. We take it to Tball game and soccer games. It is nice to get to watch my older kids play ball with my baby safely at my side. I take it to my moms and friends non-child proof homes to keep my daughter from touching their things or falling down the stairs. I have used it on the beach to keep my daughters feet off the hot sand. I could literally go on and on, but don't take my word for it read the testimonials on this website. If your a mom who wants their child to be able to entertain themselves in a safe environment no matter where you are, give this product a try. There is a 100% money back guarantee.
PopATot was designed for both indoor and outdoor use, the uses are limitless. Indoors it can be used anywhere in the house to replace those bulky plastic baby activity centers that cannot fit through doorways in your home. Use it in the family room to keep the baby away from the tread mill while you get your morning work out in; use it in the bathroom to keep your baby occupied and safe while you shower and in the kitchen to entertain the baby while you cook dinner. It's a portable place to keep the baby safe while the responsible adult completes necessary tasks of life.
PopATot is a portable / collapsible baby activity center that weighs less than 8 lbs. It can easily be opened or closed for easy movement between rooms, down stairs, indoors / outdoors. It is great to take on vacation to the beach, to the park or a friends non- child proof home.
My Opinion: I have found soooo many uses for PopATot! It has actually made things quite simplier! I love popping my grandson in it while I mop the kitchen, bake, dishes, do laundry, shower, exercise and help the other grandkids with things they need done(homework, etc.). He loves it because the other kids climb inside the bottom of it and play with him. My 3 year old grandson actually fell asleep in the bottom of it while the 10 month old was in it. I also love that it has two (2) holders for cups, bottles, etc. on it.
My daughter loved it when they went to the beach this weekend. Baby was happy go lucky in his PopATot under the umbrella while the other kids were building sand castles.
We also used it in Church nursery. It was a hit! They are talking of buying a couple for the nursery.
PopATot would make wonderful Baby Gifts and Christmas Gifts!
