Syki product review: toddler monitor!

As a parent we know as Much as we’d like to have eyes in the back of our heads, we don’t. 

Sometimes toddlers are simply too fast and too sneaky for both their own safety and our overall sanity. This is where the toddler monitor comes in, this simple adorable device becomes your second pair of eyes when connected to your smartphone. You can use this long range capable sensor on both exterior and interior doors!

Don’t want your little one to have access to the laundry room or garage without your knowledge? Toddler monitor to the rescue!

Keep your toddler safe inside with a sensor on both your front and back doors. 

Give your child the freedom to Rome in their parent designated “safe zones” without having to worry about their safety. 

The toddler monitor by syki offers Independence to your children while ensuring peace of mind for parents and caregivers. 

The toddler offers the longest Bluetooth connectivity range on the market so you and your smartphone would need to stray pretty far to be out of reach!

If  you think your kiddo is just too sneaky for the toddler monitor think again! With 3 sensitivity levels even the slightest movement can be detected and you’d absolutely be notified if your child managed to remove (or even try to remove) the monitor from its host door!

Since the monitor is internationally charged by included usb there’s no need to replace batteries ever just plug it up, charge and armor your home against danger!

Nothing happens without your knowledge with or without a second and 3rd pair of eyes!

It’s Bluetooth meaning you could essentially take it everywhere so you can safe guard even the most unfamiliar of places such as hotel rooms on vacation or even the homes of family and friends. 

They sell them in sets so they’re definitely worth the investment and as a parent and teacher myself these would make an incredible gift!

Of course it takes a village to raise children but these little door monsters help carry the load! 

The safety of children is as it should be every caregivers main priority so these are definitely a sound investment for anyone with love in their heart for a child!

And with it being summer this is the perfect addition to your safety precautions if you have a pool!

I’m beginning to see that syki doesn’t disappoint!

Syki bath support product review! (Re-upload)

I had the incredible opportunity to review a syki bath support,with a little help from one of my favorite tiny humans. While I’m a fan of the ever classic sink bath, this bath support by syki gives the comfort of a sink bath in a bathtub for easier transition from little to big with no tears. 

Unlike the mesh or fabric bath supports that you’ll find on the market today, syki’s support is made of sturdy non slip material that is extremely easy to clean post bath play and there’s no worry of mold and mildew. 

I love the fact that while this support is not collapsible, it’s still very easily transported, easy to hang and dry and it’s built in hanging option gives you the opportunity to tuck it away when not in use. 

*Less than an hour total dry time. 

My little product tester seemed to be very comfortable. I never once worried that he was going to slide down. Thanks to quality material used in manufacturing he was able to kick and splash in the water without even budging the Support’s position in the tub, or his position on the support. 

The way that the Support is shaped towards the bottom gave me some concern before the first initial use while I thought it might be fine for little girls I thought it might pose a problem for little boys. If you follow me you know what I’m referring to. But I’d like to keep my platform appropriate & available to all ages. 

I was pleased to see that that was not the case! If anything it made bathtime a little bit easier. At least, when we used it we weren’t dodging streams of Pee. 

(Boy mamas feel me on this one.)

I didn’t find the support to be bulky or take up too much space so all & all I give it 9 out of 10

Just because my son is already over 2 foot tall and 16+ pounds at 4 months old. I only wish they offered a size up. 

Great product, amazing company and the best quality money can buy. Syki is on their game and I think it’s high time other companies take notes. 

Yookidoo product review!

This is the review of the yookidoo gymotion tummy time playland ideal for babies from birth to 1 year. 

Just when I thought their family of products couldn’t get any better I was proven wrong! every baby product company has a tummy time Matt but how many can say that their tummy time Matt comes with two attention grabbing friends, hooks a track and an interactive buggy all while being completely portable?! No one but yookidoo!

This is not only an extremely convenient toy but it also promotes baby’s development. 

The gymotion playland promotes Chest and shoulder strength, development of peripheral vision And encourage baby to reach all while offering support.

Everything is completely removable for easy cleaning. 

The matt and car cover “friends” cow and dog are machine washable as well as the attached pillow. 

The track car and ring attachments can all be safely removed and wiped down as well making for a clean & healthy play experience. 

attachments and closures are made of soft, safe Velcro.

The track & buggie attachment takes simple AAA batteries to operate. 

The many colors and patterns are a major attention grabber. 

They’ve even included a secure pouch to safely store the included buggy cover animals or other accessories such as pacifiers or teethers. 

The quality of this particular product is above even what I’d expect from yookidoo or any other company. This is definitely worth the purchase!

For size comparison Raiden is over 2 foot long at 3 months old and still has plenty of room to play. So this product is clearly made to accommodate growing babies even on the go!

It’s very simple to fold with all pieces safely kept inside for travel near and far all while taking up no more space than a diaper bag does. 

This playtime essential even has its own convenient handle for a briefcase style fold and Carry. 

Yet another yookidoo product review is in the books. I cannot wait to see what else they come up with! It’s been an amazing journey with them and one I hope continues!

Do yourself and the babies in your life a major favor and go checkout yookidoo’s website for your new favorite toys. 

(Thank me later.)

Syki life pearls product review (Re-upload)

Life pearls is the perfect gift for new parents!

At first glance it’s a beautiful vase full of pearls over 900 of them in fact but it’s so much more than that. 

LifePearls and the companion app are a beautiful representation on how short the 18 years we have with our children as children really are. With one pearl for each week of life to their 18th birthday LifePearls offers an innovative way to make sure each week counts and priceless memories are made. The app offers a tailored advice section as well as activity suggestions based on your child’s age and developmental stage and even a place to store memories made! There you can store the pictures taken during these activities, share with family & friends and a virtual album is created for you. 

The purchase of your LifePearls vase includes an app activation membership code. 

The app available for iOS and android devices is very well done, extremely simple to operate and visually appealing. 

You don’t even have to purchase a vase for each child but I don’t see any reason why you wouldn’t want to! The app gives you the opportunity to add multiple children under your profile and get personalized advice and activities for each child I must caution you however, once a child is added they cannot be removed. (This could potentially pose a problem if god forbid parents add their child(ren) before birth and something unfortunate were to happen.)

You also receive reminders when to remove pearls and how many to remove when you set up your account and add a child that’s already began their 18 year journey. 

There are also tons of creative things you can do with the pearls as you remove one each week. 

Needless to say we LOVE OUR PEARLS! I’m grateful to syki not only for giving me the opportunity to do this review and make memories with my precious babies but also for creating a product like this to give that same opportunity to parents and caregivers everywhere. 

I truly feel each child deserves their own special LifePearls set because LifePearls is nothing less than an outward representation of the limited opportunities we have to create childhood memories and as the pearls dwindle like sand through an hourglass so does that time. 

Don’t wait!

Kiki shoes review: the adorable friends for your little ones feet!

When I was little light up shoes were all the rage, however as someone who wore several sets of AFO corrective braces finding cute, kid friendly shoes was nearly impossible because very few shoes accommodated my necessary orthotics much less comfortably. However ikiki  co has changed the dame by offering extremely kid friendly options that offer plenty of support for those who use AFO & SMO braces daily. They’re not only for toddlers who need special accommodations but for all toddlers making ikiki shoes all inclusive!

That’s just one of many things that set them apart! These are so much more than ordinary toddler shoes! They’re friends for your feet, each character pair has their own back story and since this review is all about Gina Jenkins I have to share her story with you! “Gina is a civil rights attorney who has dedicated her career to sticking her (long) neck out for the little guys.  Ironically, most of her work these days is for clients who are literally little, as she helps improve accessibility for some of her diminutive four-legged friends.  While she doesn’t make as much money as big-time corporate lawyers, it’s enough for her to afford a comfortable apartment in the city, with high ceilings.

Gina describes herself as an avid online shopper and “a little bit obsessed” with reality TV fashion shows.  But her favorite hobby is stargazing.  She has a small telescope that she pulls out on clear city nights, and a larger telescope that she keep at an old family cabin in the woods.”

Gina and all Ikiki characters are Velcro closures. Making them easier for parents to take on and off all white offering children independence they wouldn’t have with laces. 

But the best part about these roomy fit companion shoes Is that they promote heel-to-toe walking with the squeaker located in the heel of each shoe. (Don’t worry parents, it has a switch, and can be turned on and off!)

These shoes are functional, adorable, entertaining shoes that will work for families from all walks of life! (pun totally intended) 

I absolutely love the love and support ikiki puts into their shoes making sure no toddlers are left out, offering many characters and sizes to fit braces and growing feet. 

The squeaker is definitely entertaining while promoting heel-to-toe steps, and it’s definitely a bonus if you have a runner who likes to hide!

“Can’t be sneaky if you’re squeaky!”

The prices for these above and beyond shoes is no more than you’d spend on any other brand for your toddler.

Syki product review: The autumn grey diaper bag experience. (re-upload)

My partnership with Syki is in full swing!

This partnership is huge! I’ll be reviewing several items for Syki and I couldn’t be more excited. 

I traded in my wonderful ipack baby chevron diaper bag that I absolutely adore for one week and switched to the autumn grey bag by Ryco!

Like my current bag the autumn has tons of pockets, an insulated bottle pocket to keep bottles hot or cold, and an included matching changing easy clean pad however this Ryco bag offers things my ipack baby doesn’t. 

-the fabric material is waterproof 

-the inside lining is wipe clean and waterproof. 


-there is even a designated pacifier pocket on the inside!

The bag itself is lighter than my current one, even when packed which is nice. 

I’ve only found 3 drawbacks in comparison of these two bags but of course each of these is just a personal preference 

-the outer pockets are not zippered. 

-the autumn does not come with a wipe travel case 

-and lastly the autumn does not have the protective pegs on the bottom of the bag that the ipack does so fabric is touching whatever surface directly when the bag is sat down. 

Again, these are extremely minuscule details but I’m here to deliver all the facts. 

The week that I used the autumn for this review we had several appointments. 

I’m very pleased with the experience we had. Ryco clearly took these things into consideration when designing their line because I loved the fact that I could safely wipe down the waterproof fabric to help cut back on any gems we may have brought home with us from doctors offices, hospitals and any other highly populated areas we visited where germs are bound to linger. 

As a breastfeeding mother it’s not a stretch to say that I would’ve used this diaper bag as a pumping bag & purse combination! This thing is spacious and plenty roomy to hold all pumping supplies and essentials discreetly!

This diaper bag is gender neutral which I love and could very easily be personalized with heat transfer vinyl or even embroidered for those parents looking for a personal touch. 

I LOVE this bag. The question is… now that this week is up will I switch back to my ipack?

Maybe,maybe not. Only time will tell. Is it worth the purchase? Absolutely. 

No question if I was contacted by Syki or Ryco to review the rest of their diaper bag line I would do it no hesitation! That is how positive this experience has been. 

Snuza hero product review:

This is the Snuza hero review!

{My precious son was an all too willing participant for this review as you can see}
I was given the amazing opportunity to work with Snuza on not one but two of their impeccable products!}

Snuza is a voice for the ones who need it most, babies!

with the snuza hero you can conveniently clip the monitor onto the child’s diaper no cords, wires or even sensor pads are necessary. 

The Snuza monitor lets you sleep soundly knowing you’ll be alerted if your child’s abdominal movements slow to less than 8 times a minute or even stop. 

The units vibration stimulates baby to start breathing again after 15 seconds of no movement. Alarms sound after just 20 seconds of no abdominal movements. 

We enjoyed the simplicity of use with the Snuza hero knowing that the most precious of all are sleeping soundly. 

The lights add a visual reassurance that the unit is working and your baby is safe yet is never distracting or over stimulating. You never have to worry about the flashing light keeping you, or baby awake. The Snuza is easy to set up and install and takes at max 2 minutes At nap or bedtime. 

The simplicity of the Snuza hero wearable baby abdominal movement monitor is charming! No wires, socks, cords or sensor pads are needed you don’t even need a WiFi connection or Bluetooth!

The monitor comes with a protective case for easy on the go travel making it perfect for any and all impromptu sleep sessions your little one may venture on so you always know they’re safe!

And as you can see Raiden isn’t bothered one bit by wearing the Snuza, being wrapped up and headed on his way to bed!

Nanobebe Product Review!

Tatorthoughts Nanobébé product Review!!!

Thanks to the incredible marketing department over at nanobébé I received:

  • 1 nanobébé brand breastmilk bottle complete with direct pump adapter, storing cap, nipple & nipple cover. 
  • 2 preemie slow flow nipples & storage case. 
  • 3 extra thick nanobébé flat breastmilk storage bags. 

Initial thoughts: 

The bottle: packaging is impeccable!

(Slightly damaged but I blame the shipping courier for that, considering it was crammed in my mailbox.)

Upon opening the box I was taken back by how well manufactured the products actually are. I was impressed by the fact that it’s not cheaply made plastic, rather durable thick plastic with sturdy rubber like material rims which I really liked. 

I must admit even as a woman, a mother and an infant teacher I did get a giggle out of the bottles shocking likeness to a breast. 

I also appreciated the fact that the nanobébé bottle came with a locking storage cap, and a lid to shield the nipple while in transport. 

The storage bags: as someone with texture sensitivity I appreciated the feel of the bags themselves both empty and in use. 


The extra nipples:

Again quality is evident right of the bat. Prior to even using them I can say with confidence that nanobébé is a brand that puts both thought and effort into their products from the drawing board to the store shelf, or in my case straight to your mailbox. 


(After using the products for 3 days.)

I used 1 bag for milk storage each day. 

They fill and freeze well and it’s an extremely nice aspect that it stores FLAT!

They’re easy to write on and writing remains clear and doesn’t smudge as well. 

The baby response to the bottle was overall a positive one, of course like anything with babies they like what they like and overall nanobébé was a fan favorite. 

The direct pump adapter works well and it isn’t awkward to pump directly into as someone may initially have thought. (Honestly, that someone was me. I was wrong and I’ve never been so happy to be wrong.) 

This adapter gives a whole new meaning to pump & serve. Mama approves. 

The only thing I didn’t like was having to transfer milk from one bottle to the nanobébé after heating. Now, the only reason I had to do this was because I don’t own a nanobébé warmer or a warmer that accommodates the size of this bottle brand. 

After this experience I may be looking into getting one though. 

Overall I give these products (with babies’ willing help of course) a 9 out of 10!

Way to go nanobébé! Great job!, great products! Great customer experience!
