Grand Finale #4 ~ PopATot


When I found out we would be getting a PopATot for review I was excited! I knew before we even had it that we would like it, but I had no idea how much we would LOVE it! I am so excited to share this amazing product with you all!




PopATot was created by parents, Evan and Stacy, who have 5 children! I personally think this idea is wonderful. When I was trying to describe to my husband what was coming in the mail for Ladybug, I described it as a cross between a card table, an exersaucer, and a fabric folding chair. He sort of got it, but when he finally saw it he totally understood my references!!!

I will let our many photos of Ladybug speak mostly for themselves (she is 5 1/2-6 months in all of these photos). We use this thing every day now, and in many different places throughout each day-it is that easy to move around.

My absolute favorite use for the PopATot is in our schoolroom. We have a fairly small schoolroom and I only need to have Ladybug in there sometimes, so I don't want a big baby item in there. PopATot is perfect because I can set it up and take it down quickly!

My bedroom is another of those places! She hangs out in my room often like this now!!

We have a 2nd story deck off of our bedroom, and the PopATot is perfect for the deck!!! We can't fit anything else out the small door, let alone leave something big out there in the weather. This is wonderful!
I set Ladybug up in the middle and the boys ride all around her on their riding toys!
She's all smiles and cuteness!!!
Pac Man likes the PopATot too ;)
I am so excited that one of YOU is going to win this awesome baby item, just in time for the holiday season. Won't this be wonderful to have for Thanksgiving or Christmas, when you are away from home? I am looking forward to bringing ours with us to visit family for Christmas this year! It folds up so small and fits in it's own sling bag so it is very portable!

I'd LOVE a PopATot for my little guy - we live out in the country & with 2 other boys & 2 older girls we are outside frequently - this would be perfect!!

Rockin' C said...

MamaBB said...

With a super active 19-month old and a new little one on the way, I'd love to have somewhere for the new baby to play safely and watch his/her big brother while we try to do tot school!

Carrie said...

The Pop A Tot would be perfect for camp - where my hubby works & I volunteer when I can - we're expecting a baby girl in December, so we would use this a TON next summer! We live in a small house, too, so it'd be nice to have this instead of the Exersaucer set up all the time.

Carrie said...

2nd entry - my baby that I'd love to have this for is T minus 8 1/2 weeks and counting - due date Dec. 18th! :)

Carrie said...

3rd entry -I would definitely take pictures of my lil girl in the Pop A Tot & post it on my blog. :)

Kellie said...

I would LOVE one of these for Alyssa!! We don't have anything portable that we can carry around the house (or outside) for her to play in. I try to move her Buggy Car (which is an exercauser in the shape of a car) around but it is so bulky and wide and heavy...it's hard to move around some. It would be so nice to have something portable to take around!

Kellie said...

I would use this for Alyssa, who is 6 months old!

Kellie said...

I would LOVE to take a picture of Alyssa in it and blog about PopATot!!

(I will hopefully have the picture of Aaron and Alyssa watching their new brainy baby dvd up on a post this week...my computer crashed so I am a little frazzled right now but am still planning on getting that up this week!)

Kellie said...

On the picture page - I love the one that says "Mom can finally take a bath!" I would so be the one that would be setting it up in the bathroom so I can have a bubble bath! :-)

I also love the beach and the lake pictures!

This would be so handy!!

Kellie said...

ok - I just went to our other computer that normall doesn't get used since I can't get anything to work on my laptop to watch the video segment from Great Day St Louis!

How lucky is she!!! Just a mom who had a great idea and now she is so very busy selling her product! That is just awesome! I love products that were created by moms. They are the best!

Life by the Handful said...

What a great idea! I hate how much room activity/bouncers take up and with baby number six on it's way I need all the space saving I can get not to mention the convenience it would allow when going places.

I love this!
My family, with 4 children, travels in an RV throughout the year with my husband's work and ministry. We do not have space there for big baby items and this would be perfect!
Debihumston@yahoo.com

DebiH. said...

I love the beach photo! The beach is hard to enjoy when watching several small kids and holding onto a baby! This baby looks so happy!
Debihumston@yahoo.com

DebiH. said...

I would love to post a photo of my baby on my blog if we win!

Just watched the video! It is great to see an older baby using it and enjoying it ! Such a smart idea!

Lori P said...

We would love to own a PopATot for all the reasons you mentioned, also, all of the grandparents live out of state, so we travel a lot to see them. This would be such an awesome thing to be able to bring back and forth!

Packer Family said...

I would love this for Camping!!!!!

Lori P said...

My youngest daughter, Liberty, turned 6 months old yesterday! She would looooove playing in a PopATot!

Packer Family said...

My baby is 6 and 1/2 months old! and he would love it!

Packer Family said...

I would post on my blog if I won!

Evenspor said...

Our baby wants to stand ALL THE TIME. He needs something like this. My arms are getting tired!

Lori P said...

I we win a PopATot I would definitely take a picture and blog about it on my blog at www.lorislittleloves.com.

Evenspor said...

My little guy is four months old, five by the time we'd get it - just the right age for something like this.

Lori P said...

I watched the entire segment telling all about the start of PopATot. It's cool to know that it was created by a family that goes to "church" of some sort!

Lori P said...

I like the photos showing the baby: Chillin' in the PopATot outside while mommy or daddy is doing yard work.

Danielle said...

i would so LOVE a popatot. we live in a small mobile home with our 2 month old and our 2 year old. there's not a whole lot of space in the floor for the both of them so something that folds up when not in use would be perfect for us! that's my favorite part about it....that it folds up so i could store it until my son is old enough to use it!

Danielle said...

i would absolutely write a post on my blog and take a picture of my son in it if i win. :)

Danielle said...

my son that i would like a popatot for is 2 months old right now.

Bethany said...

My first child (a boy) just celebrated his four month birthday and would LOVE to play in this while I'm working from home.

Bethany said...

I would totally post a picture and blog about it if we won :)

Bethany said...

I love how content the kids look in it on the video!

Bethany said...

I like the "what's mom making for dinner" :) we would totally use it for that!!

Danielle said...

my photo that i think is a great idea for a use of the popatot is mom being able to take a bath now! being a mom of 2 i don't feel like i get to take a bath or shower on my own and that is an awesome use to help me do just that!

Danielle said...

The Activity Mom said...

I just love the portability of it. It would be so nice to have something that folds down and goes up with ease. We do a lot of traveling so it would be nice to take with us.

The Activity Mom said...

My baby is due in January.

Cassie and Jase said...

We'd love the Pop-a-Tot, because we also have limited space where we are currently living and it would be a great way to entertain the baby!

Cassie and Jase said...

Baby Kirsten is 11 days old =]

Cassie and Jase said...

I love the trick-or-treating photo of using the PopATot while handing out candy!

Cassie and Jase said...

We would definitely post pictures on our blog if we won!

Jennie Shellenberger said...

This would be perfect for when we go to our favorite park or visit family out of town!

Jennie Shellenberger said...

My baby is due in four weeks... a perfect gift for Thanksgiving!

Brandi said...

We travel alot and don't have much room so it would be much better than not taking anything.

Brandi said...

I have an 8 month old that would love this!

Brandi said...

Of course I will take a picture..ok I admit it lots of pictures and post them on the blog

Brandi said...

I think the best use for it was right on the water edge on the rocks. the baby in POP A TOT is totally safe and not going over the water

kimberlysummer40 said...

I love that you can take it anywhere. We are always taking trips to see family and friends and this would be perfect! It would be a good christmas gift for my sister-in-law too.

kimberlysummer40 said...

I like the photo Mom can finally take a bath. This is perfect for the bathroom. Love it.

sharon said...

I'd like a popatot cause I am having my 3rd baby in just DAYS! By next summer we could really use one of these for the back yard since he will likely not be crawling yet!

sharonsaad at gmail dot com

Jennifer said...

I have not been blessed enough to find the man God has created for me or have children of my own, but I do babysit and volunteer every Sunday in our church nursery. I could find so many uses for the PopATot.

klagee27 said...

This would be such a convenience for our family, without just sticking the baby in a playpen and "jailing" her!

klagee27 said...

My baby girl is almost 3 months old!

klagee27 said...

I would definitely take a photo of my girl in this!

klagee27 said...

I watched the video - I love that these have wheels, so it's that much easier to move!

klagee27 said...

We live near the beach, so I love the pics of this by the river... water safety!

Amy said...

My baby girl would love this and so would her mama! She loves to be upright and watching her big brother and sister. This would allow her to do that and be safe from all their craziness! :)

Amy said...

My baby is 5 months old. :)

Amy said...

I would love to take a photo of my girl in the PopATot and blog about it!

I would love this for my 4 month old son especially since we live 9 hours from family and over holidays have to pack tons and this would pack perfectly and also travel great on airplane!

Amy said...

I LOVE the picture of that little sweetie and daddy in the mess hall.

Jessica said...

I have a 10 month old that would love the PopATot! He is trying to stand all the time and we have slippery tile floors, and 4 other children and 2 dogs watch out for.

Jessica said...

I would love to post about the PopATot on my website, AlwaysAMama.blogspot.com

Jessica said...

I became a facebook fan!

Jessica said...

I love the picture of the baby in the PopATot in the bathroom, I don't think I've been able to take a relaxing bath (just quick showers) since before my 10 month old was born!

Jessica said...

I just watched the video, the pink one is CUTE! Makes me want to have a girl lol.

Misty said...

I'd love to win a pop a tot!!! It would be perfect to pack!!! I've had my eye on this- I saw it on another blog!!! I'd love it!!!

Kristi:)

Diana said...

With family out of state, this would actually fit in our car, and make visiting out of town so much easier. I love the fact that it's portable and light.

Diana said...

I have a little one coming in March that I'd use this for.

Diana said...

I love the picture on the PopATot site at the beach. It would keep baby out of the sand, but still allow him/her to enjoy the scenery, especially with the umbrella attachment, to keep away the sun. Genius!

Katy-Anne said...

I'd love to win this! I have three ages two and under and it would be great to keep the baby in while playing with the bigger boys.

Katy-Anne said...

My baby is two months old, I'd love one for when he gets just a little bigger.

Katy-Anne said...

I would take a picture of my baby in the PopATot and blog about it if I won.

Katy-Anne said...

I love the bathroom idea. Can take a shower and know baby is safe!

By the way my email addy is katyanne85 at gmail dot com.

Our Family Is His said...

This is awesome. I have a 20 month old with hypotonia that this would be awesome for. He could use this daily.

Our Family Is His said...

And yes, I will pop a picture (probably many) on my blog if I win this. I am all about sharing great products with my readers.

Evenspor said...

I watched the video!

Evenspor said...

From the photos: I love the idea of putting it next to the bath.

Margaret said...

I would love a PopATot for my little one! We travel a lot and with three kiddos it's hard to fit all of our gear in the car sometimes--this would be perfect since it folds up!

Margaret said...

I have a 3 1/2 month old who would love this! :)

Margaret said...

I would most definitely take a picture of my baby in his new PopATot and write about my win and PopATot on my blog!

Laura said...

This would be perfect for my little girl who is currently 4 weeks old :)

Laura said...

I would definitely blog about this on my blog :)

Susan said...

THey all were terrific uses. The one where the baby is in the pop a tot during a playdate is so perfect. I remember bringing Sweet Pea home from the hospital wondering where in the world I would when we resumed our playdates. This is perfect!

Susan said...

cute video. i'll stick w the child version lol

Erin Emigh Stanford said...

This looks like such a great product! I'd love to have it for my little Caroline!

Mama Ruck said...

Just looking at Popatot you can tell it was invented by a parent! We have a new little one coming in the family whose parents would love this!

Jeanette said...

I watched the video and love how easy it is to just pull out of the bag and pop open! Very thoughtful product!

ShiningStarAcademy said...

Hi! I would love one because it would be a safe place for my little man to go and sit and play away from his older brothers 6 and 2. :) It would be comfy and he could still be upright and participate in our activities safely! :)

ShiningStarAcademy said...

My baby is 8 months old today! :)

ShiningStarAcademy said...

I would def. take a pic of my little man in this and post it on my blog! :)

ShiningStarAcademy said...

I watched the video! Camo would so be up our alley since my hubbys in the army!! :)

ShiningStarAcademy said...

Omg! I can't pick just one photo! They are all soooo great...by the water, at the park/picnic, etc! But if I must the pix with the military daddies is great. A great way for baby to interact with daddy and all who are around. :) (I miss daddy!)

My lil guy loves things that he can stand in, but as you know the regular ones don't travel well...not even room to room! We would be able to go outside, or to the grandparents house with this though! He could have a set up of us own at the park!

And I love the cup holders!

Erin said...

My son is just over 6 months old now!

Erin said...

We would definitely post a picture on the blog if we were to win!

Erin said...

Watched the video and I did not expect it to be so easy to get out and pop open! I think you could actually do that one handed (with the tot in the other hand!)

Erin said...

Just one good idea? I think taking a bath is the best one!!
