To date these are the best wipes we've gotten for our son. We buy them at BJ's and we love them. They're the softest, they clean the best, and they're not as stiff as other brands. We use them to clean pretty much everything. They feel more like cloth than paper, which is what we like. My son has had no reaction to them so far, and they help keep his teething rashes in check. We've switched to the Luvs wipes permanently, they just work for us.
These pens are my favorite - more expensive pens end up looking fancier but write for crap, and cheaper pens are of a horrific quality. I like my pens to write thick and glide well over the paper, and these are fantastic for that. I'm pretty hard on my pens and I've had good luck with these. (Now if only I could stop losing them!)
There is nothing redeemable about this book. It's a copy of her (largely plagiarized) Harry Potter fanfiction. The plot is predictable, and not "This is going to happen next ahhh I'm dying with anticipation" predictable, more "Okay, so now it's time for the final battle, during which the evil bad guy will reveal a terrible secret that we've been guessing at the entire book." She really left NOTHING up to the imagination and overkilled all the foreshadowing and metaphor.
The writing was lazy and boring. The characters weren't characters, they ended up being caricatures that only perpetuated the whiny powerless female character falling in love with a powerful beautiful man trope. The relationship didn't grow, it just sort of existed, and nothing important happened between them.
This is essentially a Twilight book with magic instead of vampirism.
My son loved this and played for it until he started walking. He absolutely loved playing with the piano. The hanging toys weren't as interesting to him as the piano was, but he loved to chew on them when his teeth were growing in. It was the single most useful toy we had for learning to sit up unassisted. He really tried to stay upright as long as possible to keep playing with the piano.
We used ours religiously, the batteries never ran out and it never busted.
It was a little bit big for our small apartment - we didn't find that there was a good way to store it to save space.
We bought ours at walmart for 40$, and it was easily worth that to us. He used it for 6+ months and when you compare the hours of use with the price it really wasn't that bad for us.
