So here it is Day 5 in our 11 Days of awesome giveaways...has it been 5 days already? I hope you are all enjoying the great giveaways that we've had for you so far and I really hope that you've been visiting my girl Alexis' blog to check out what great giveaways she has going on!

As most of you know I have four children, two of the four are under the age of 2 and that sometimes makes things interesting to say the least! One of the biggest challenges I face when I have all four children is being able to handle (logistically of course...I'm a SAHM I can handle anything) taking all four children somewhere by myself. Both of my oldest daughter's are very active in school activities and sports and while I love being able to attend their different events trying to do so with two babies is not always easy. On the off chance that I drag both of the babies with me to a sporting event I am always stressed out and can never enjoy the game because I'm either fighting with a baby that would rather be crawling around or running after a screaming toddler. Needless to say I am always looking for solutions to this problem and my solution came when I found a great product called PopATot!

The idea for the PopATot was conceived on a camping trip with a wiggly baby who didn't want to be strapped into a stroller or held on Mommy's hip. The inventors of the PopATot wanted to design a product that could be portable, safely contain a child, and offer lots of freedom, fun, and independence and so the PopATot was born! The PopATot is a highly portable activity center for babies that can easily be used inside or out and is convenient and ideal for a number of different settings and activities. The PopATot is designed in much the same way as the fold up chairs we all take to baseball and soccer games and is definitely a life saver for on the go parents!




When we received the PopATot to review I was so excited and it didn't take long before we were able to test it out. The first time we used the PopATot was on a family fishing trip. Normally I take a big blanket and lay it out on the ground for my daughter (she's 7 months) to play on but she usually crawls right off and into the grass which I do not like. First let me say that the PopATot is so simple to set up, it literally pops right into place and snaps to lock in seconds which you can see in the video below!



Now excuse the shirt (which looks a little freaky on camera), and how bad I look (hey I had 4 kids screaming at me in the background) I just wanted you to see how easy and convenient the PopATot really is! I've used the PopATot several times; at softball games, family cookouts, and fishing trips so it really is a great product to have when you have a baby who doesn't want to be strapped in a stroller all day. The only thing about the PopATot that I wish was different is the fact that the bottom of the structure is not adjustable (you can not move it up or down to allow for children of different heights) my daughter is very short for her 7 months and I had to place a folded blanket in the bottom of the PopATot so that Kinley's feet wouldn't be left dangling. Overall I think that the PopATot is a genius idea! I love the idea of having a highly portable activity center that I can take anywhere!

Buy it!!! You can purchase the PopATot on there website here.

Now the super nice people at PopATot are offering one of my great readers their very own PopATot...how cool is that?!!
