Evenflo ExerSaucer World Explorer Triple Fun Saucer

This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Evenflo and Latina Bloggers Connect,  All opinions are my own.

Hi everyone! So we have officially started the Holiday season here. We had such a great first Thanksgiving with Nina. She might not have any teeth yet but this girl loves to eat so she had turkey and all the fixings. It really is amazing to watch your family love your children. I’ve always appreciated how warm and loving my great big Latino family is, but seeing all that love and attention lavished on my baby really makes me love them all the more. (Update: as of this week she has a tooth!)

Getting ready for the holidays for me means lots of baking. Just for the Thanksgiving holiday I made two pumpkin pies, a pumpkin croissant bread pudding, devilled eggs, kale garlic dip, and an entire prime rib all from scratch! I love, love to cook. It’s my version of therapy or meditation, zoning out and completely focusing on the task at hand… until baby came. Unless my husband is home, cooking has become something of a juggling act that I do while entertaining her. So far her favorite play is just on a blanket in the living room with some wooden dinosaurs, a small tambourine, and a book. And while I do love how she can play on her own I can’t exactly focus on anything else now that she is mobile and she and our English Bulldog enjoy giving each other sloppy puppy kisses. So I have been on the hunt for something that would keep her safe and entertained and allow me to finish browning the shallots! We first tried the First Starts activity center. It did the job for maybe a week before Nina decided she rather be on the floor exploring so away that went. We have a clutter rule in our home, if she doesn’t use it then out it goes to storage, donations, or handed down to a friend or family. Living in the city with limited space we don’t like to keep extra stuff and also we try to follow a simplicity approach to parenting, but that’s a whole other post. Luckily for our dinners and me Evenflo approached Nina On the Moon with their Exersaucer to try out. Funnily enough my Mom and I had just seen it in Babies R’ Us and we both commented on how unique the play as you grow idea was. I like products with more than one purpose or as we all have come to know them “hacks” built in. This product starts as a gym and play mat, then becomes an Exersaucer, and eventually when your little one is walking or at least standing steadily a play table. How cool is that. When we got the Evenflo ExerSaucer World Explorer Nina had just past the stage of being able to use the gym but I set it out for her anyways to see how she would react and although she was too big for it (She was like a baby version of King Kong grabbing the helicopter and trying to gnaw on it) she really liked the dangling toys on the bar. I loved the play mat. Having hardwood floors I’ve been looking for something with a soft and thick feel that was cute, and that didn’t come apart like those puzzle mats. This is exactly that. I only wish it was a little bigger so I could set her down on it and she could crawl and play. Seeing how into the gym she was I was pumped to build the Exersaucer so she could really play. I had built an activity center once before on my own so I though that of course I could do it again. I was so wrong. This thing is intense! It took my husband and I half an hour of teamwork to build it, but it was completely worth it. It’s the Mercedes of activity centers. The around the world travel theme is thought out really well with animals from different parts of the world as well as a camera, globe, mirror, and a bunch of other cool stuff. We went out of town after she only had a couple of days to interact with it so I’ll follow up in a couple of days to update everyone and hopefully we found our match! If you’re interested in getting this for your kiddos Babies R’ Us is offering 20% just follow the link . It would also make a great Christmas or Hanukah gift!
