Gradie is growing up – as much as I am trying to stop it, it is truly a case of resistance being futile!! She is almost 15 months old now and already getting to the stage of wanting to do things all by herself. Thankfully I was lucky enough to receive a box full of amazing tommee tippee Explora products for her to use.
tommee tippee Explora range
The tommee tippee Explora range of products is designed to help your little ones as they transition to self feeding – really to help them master eating and drinking, in easy steps. The Explora range of products consists of bowls & spoons, bibs & cups, and more. I will talk about a few of my favorites below.
From a mommy perspective, the tommee tippee Explora Easi-Mat is my favorite product. If you have a toddler, you know they love throwing things, everything!! I can say that the Explora Easi-Mat saved my sanity – if i had to clean up the mess of one more spilled bowl of food I think I would have lost it. The easi-mat grips bowls and plates firmly where they should stay, on the high chair tray, no more flying plates or bowls, no more allowing the dog to eat all of Gradie’s food, and most importantly no more mess on the floor. Let me tell you, at first Gradie was mad with her easi-mat, she tried with all her might to pull the bowl off of it, but she couldn’t get it off and after a while of trying she gave up and just ate her dinner, I call that a hugely successful product!!
Truly Spill Proof Straw Cup
Couple things about the tommee tippee Explora Truly Spill Proof Straw Cup – they say it is truly spill proof, and I have to agree. They also say that this cup is to help your little one learn to drink with a straw, and in our experience it has worked wonderfully. In fact, this is the first straw cup that Gradie was actually successful at learning how to use. While learning how to use it she also sent it on many trips off of her high chair tray, she crawled around with it, which for Gradie entails throwing it ahead of her, crawling to where it is, drinking a bit, throwing it again and moving on – hence the reason I agree that it is spill proof, there has been no mess on the floor during her escapades.
Bibs – they’re probably my least favorite thing to have to use. I get the usefulness, I really do, but I always seem to forget to pack them in when we head out, or I remember to pack them, but I then forget to use them when it’s time for Gradie to eat. That was until I received the tommee tippee Explora Easi-Roll Bibs. As the name states – they ROLL up. You can roll them up and easily store them in the diaper bag, I like to put them into the ‘bottle’ holder on the side of her diaper back pack, that way they’re safely stored, and I SEE them to remember to use them. The other fantastic feature of these bibs is how easy they are to clean – all you have to do is wipe them down, no more putting nasty, dirty bibs back into your diaper bag, or having to take care of that laundry!
Easy Scoop Feeding Bowls With Lid and Spoon
Life is busy, we all know that. Seems these days we have so much stuff to get done but absolutely NOT enough time to get it all completed. That is why I love the tommee tippee Explora Easy Scoop Feeding Bowls with Lid and Spoon. While we’re on the go, taking care of errands, visiting grandparents, etc. we still have to feed our beautiful toddlers and with these bowls you are able to transport that food so easily. With the included spoon you’re set to be able to feed your little one on the go. At our house we love using these bowls at home too, it is attached to the Explora Easi-Mat in the photo above.
