Best of the Best: Favorite Baby Gear


The old addage is so true, the time when my kids were babies is a complete blur {insert sad face here}. I’m thankful that I overcompensate when it comes to videos and photos, or I’d have very little recollection of the early years. Yet, some things stick out to me so well even without photo-proof, like it was yesterday.

Moments when the girls slept lazily in the bouncer and swing, letting out those random sighs of content. Those peaceful times when I could catch my breath,  take it all in and etch the memory forever. Let’s call it regeneration after what was most likely complete chaos just minutes before, reassurance that I could do this. This thing called Motherhood.

Speaking of baby swings, my Katie laughed for the first time, swinging in one. I actually caught this moment on video, one of the best videos I’ve ever got. Obviously she loved that swing for play as much as I did for it providing her with sleepiness. That was one gear item that was such a smart purchase, and wouldn’t even hesitate to recommend to others. I was actually so sad to pass the swing along to another Mom after the twins outgrew it. Yet, I knew I was passing down more than a swing. I was giving her memories, peace of mind and time to enjoy that morning cup of coffee.

I can still close my eyes and be taken back to the soothing music and lights of their crib attachment, which calmed the girls as much as it did me. In this case I’m taking about the Ocean Wonders Aquarium by Fisher-Price. First we had one when the twins slept together, then later a second aquarium was placed in another crib for when they slept solo. It was one of those products that was so needed, so welcome, that I had to have a twin set {pun intended}.

The common denominator all examples is obviously, Fisher-Price. Which is exactly why I stand behind the brand and adore being a Fisher-Price Mom Ambassador. We were surrounded by the toys and gear that shaped my days since my babies were born, and they are all very much part of the memories I hold dear, today.

It’s with this reminiscing that I am happy to announce that Fisher-Price is launching their Fisher-Price Favourites Campaign. The Fisher-Price Favourites line includes 5 pieces of baby gear and 7 toys for a total of 12 items, that have proven again and again to be the “Best of the Best”. Moms throughout the generations have continued to love these particular 12 items above all others.


What Makes a Fisher-Price Favourite?

  • These toys have been tried & tested through the years, and year over year have been favourites of moms, not just in Canada, but globally.
  • They have lasted through generations of kids, and continually pass, not only the “Dr Alfono test”, but also the “kid test”!
  • They encourage child development and support children in achieving important milestones.

The first 5 of the Fisher-Price Favourites items are ‘gear’ and they include:

  1. Ocean Wonders Aquarium
  2. My Little Snugabunny Cradle N Swing
  3. Infant to Toddler Rocker
  4. SpaceSaver High Chair
  5. Discover’n Grow Jumperoo

For myself, my favourites mentioned were ones that lasted the test of time, passed down from child to child. It was those time-savers and sanity-savers that were my little helpers in a mess of chaos.

  1. Kids grow too fast! I remember when my babies were little! The lived in their swings! I have a video of my middle laughing in his swing. its priceless!

    1. That is precious Jenn, such great memories! Glad you also got it on video, make a few copies just in case. You’ll want to view that one forever!!

    1. Funny how you don’t notice until you really take notice, right? I mean, I didn’t think of it at the time, I just had gear. But looking back, it was mostly FP! That says a lot!

  2. We are definitely a Fisher Price family! We have depended on the brand for the past two years! I love seeing all of the new things they come out with each year!

  3. I love Fisher Price and when my last grand son was born bought him a complete set of Fisher Price entertainment set of swing, tot totter, and crib mobile.

  4. Too many to list! The Ocean Aquarium bouncer is legendary as was the lamb swing. We also had the highchair, the aquarium crib toy and borrowed a jumparoo from a friend.

  5. we have the SpaceSaver High Chair. Wouldn’t want any other high chair, it’s perfect. AND i love the color pattern of brown and pink. Easy to clean, take with us if needed.
