Alright friends. I’m about to do something that I haven’t done in many, many, many years.
Awhile ago, many, many, many years ago, I decided that I would never do a product review without giving away that same products to my readers. You guys are important to me, I have always said “I like free stuff but I like my readers better.” Believe me, I know what it’s like to go to blogs and read endlessly about products they are reviewing and you end up scratching your head and wondering “is this person even telling the truth?”
You know I’m right.
Anyway, a few weeks ago, I was contacted about reviewing something called the Fisher Price EZ Bundle.
Aren’t the colors cool and fantastic? I think so, too. But, I just couldn’t do it. I have standards, people! I showed it to Brian and he was like “so, when do you get it?” I was taken aback…”um, no, I’m not going to do it because I don’t do reviews when there isn’t a giveaway attached” and he was like “yeah, but maybe do it, this thing looks pretty awesome.”
Me: But no giveaway!
Him: But lots of free things, things we will actually use!
Him: We have $14 in our checking account.
and I surrendered and I sort of want to apologize to you because I feel like I’ve let you down but I feel kind of good about this because maybe you should know about this product and also I have SO MANY CUTE PICTURES OF ELI! (so, we’re cool, right?)
Also, maybe Fisher-Price will be like, “awwww…let’s give away some to her readers! You’re getting a Fisher Price EZ Bundle! You’re getting a Fisher Price EZ Bundle! You’re getting a Fisher Price EZ Bundle! You’re getting a Fisher Price EZ Bundle!” or whatever.
Aden + Anais blankie, froggie and cute baby are not included.
This is what I put Eli in each morning while I shower and get ready. I like it pretty well! ”I like it, too!” he says.
That chair piece comes off and attaches to other components. The idea being that rather than having all four of these full size things (swing, infant seat, toddler seat and highchair) taking up much needed space in your home, you can just have one. But really, that’s not true, you have one put together and two other components, lying around.
So, less stuff but still stuff. And good news, you need not be a genius to take these things apart and put back together. I did it without instructions WHICH SAYS A WHOLE LOT.
Here’s Eli in the highchair. We love this highchair. He sits up incredibly well in it and he things it’s pretty fancy. The other components are placed in front of the highchair.
Cute baby and crinkly book not included. This is Eli’s FAVORITE book. It’s about crinkles and things to bite on. and drool.
Hey Mom, I dropped my book about crinkles. A little help?
And then his brother came home from school. (neither brother is included. They are mine.)
And here’s the seat as an infant seat.
Eli likes it pretty well but we think he would have REALLY liked it 2 months ago. Now he thinks he’s sixteen and wants to sit up all of the time. Fortunately, there is a toddler seat, which is the highchair without the legs, but we haven’t put him in that, yet.
So, what are my honest thoughts? Well, HONESTLY, when I saw that first picture (pictured above) I thought, “WOW! Four products in one box, SMART!” So, either the marketing is a little misleading or I have zero brain cells leftover. Then Brian took it out of the box and I was like “wait, there are 325 pieces missing.” And then he explained to his wife, who has lost too many brain cells, exactly how it works.
We like it. It’s incredibly sturdy, high quality, lightweight, easy to clean and really we think traveling with it will be awesome. Would we want it instead of having each thing individually…not necessarily. I’m always on the move, from one task to the next and having to put Eli down (on the floor?) to move things around just doesn’t seem to fit with my life, so that bothers me a bit. But for the price $150.00? I think it’s a pretty good deal.
Questions? Concerns? Ask me! And thanks Fisher-Price for the review.
*and now back to our regularly schedule no reviews without a giveaway show. Thank you for your patience.*
This product was given to me, free of cost, in exchange for an honest to goodness review, which you see here.
