Tommee TippeeOk, I'll admit it, when it comes to baby items if you ask me my opinion (or those unlucky few people that look confused at BabiesRUs when registering that get my unsolicited advice) I have certain items that I'll tell you are the BEST baby products that all parents need to have. I love those bibs with the scoop pockets, we always called them pelican bibs. I really like the Playtex sippy cups because they don't leak and the valves don't fall out as easily as some other brands. And I really like the Gerber soup spoons for kids learning to self feed.

Well, I was really excited when I was given the opportunity from Mom Bloggers Club and Tommee Tippee to try some of the Tommee Tippee line. See a few months ago I started following Tommee Tippee on Twitter and won a set of their scoop bibs! If you have a Twitter account I would suggest following them too, you can stay up to date on new products and enter giveaways. Now these bibs are studier than the ones that I was currently using and they came in a twin pack. So I was more than happy to try out a few of their other products. I received their non slip easi-mat, a set of weaning bowls with lid and spoon, and the spill proof water bottle.

Ok, now let me break them down for you.

First the easi-mat sticks to ANY table surface. It's not like one of those mats (ahem kiddopotamus placement) that doesn't stick to wood tables and is nearly impossible to stick to the table. The Tommee Tippee easi-mat has no problem sticking fast to tables and high chair trays. It has a little suction cup that hold onto bowls or plates. I tried using it with some baby plates that we have, and they stuck easily along with the bowls that I received in my package.

Next comes the weaning bowls. They have a lid that has a little holder built in for the spoon. It's one of those awesome soft spoons- just like the Gerber one that I liked. But this spoon is a step BETTER! It is curved a bit so that it's easier to feed with! Genius I tell you! The lid fits tightly to the bowls and the bowls stick to the mats. Now, incase you think, "come on I've gotten those bowls and plates with the suction cups and they don't work." Hey, I was skeptical too- seriously I always thought that the suction cups gave my boys a chance to try and prove that they were strong enough to rip the bowl off the table. But with my Tommee Tippee easi-mat and bowl… haha I won, or more accurately the bowl and mat won.

Finally, the spill proof water bottle. Now B JUST started taking sippy cups and he wouldn't use the bottle, but I did test it's spill proof-ness. I left it for 2 hours upside down and after 2 hours there was a small puddle of water. But come on, what cup can sit upside down for that long and not leak a tiny bit. He actually threw it down a few times and the valve didn't come out or cause it to leak after the impact. Now my only complaints are that I wish the easi-mat was larger or came in a placemat sized mat. And I wish that they made plates. I left them a comment on their Facebook wall and shared with them my ideas. I'd  be pretty excited if they use my suggestions. I decided to take a picture of B this morning eating his Cheerios with his Tommee Tippee  mat, bowl, spoon and bib. He looks sleepy, but so cute! I tried to get a picture of him attempting to pull the bowl off the mat, but he's realized that it doesn't work and doesn't bother to try and pull it off now.

Overall I'm VERY impressed with the Tommee Tippee line. So much that I'm going to Babies R Us tomorrow to buy some more bowls for us. Right now Tommee Tippee is sold at Toys R Us and Babies R Us stores nationwide as well as online at BabiesRUs.com. I also learned that now through July 23 when you buy an Explora item (cups, toddler feeding items), you can get a second item at 50% off! So, I guess that my "list" of must have baby products just got a few more quality items added onto the list.

Just so you know I received products free from Tommee Tippee and I am a reviewer for the Mom Bloggers Club. But I really am impressed by Tommee Tippee, and I really am going to Babies R Us and buying more! All of the opinions in this post are my own.
