My First Cubby from Little Partners {Review}

d34b7eacde8e85faf23a8b18f840ae53If you’re a new or expecting parent, I’m going to let you in on a little secret. SPOIL ALERT! That tiny squishy baby will soon be an independent almost 5 year old faster than you can ever imagine. Time flies (I’m not at all exaggerating) and soon your little angel will be a wanting to do everything for him or herself with zero help from mom and dad. In my case, that new found independence is so welcomed. I gave birth to my youngest daughter 11 months ago (how is she almost one? *insert crying emoji) so my oldest wanting to do things for herself is a huge help. Whether it’s getting herself dressed, brushing her teeth by herself, going to the bathroom alone, or simply getting herself alp_cubby_lifestyle-800x800 snack, it’s one less thing that I have to do. So I jumped at the opportunity to review My First Cubby ($159.99) from Little Partners!

We have worked with Little Partners in the past and we love their products! You can check out the Tri-Side Learn & Play Art Center review here. I was excited to see how the Little Cubby could make our lives easier and help my daughter grow even more independently. First of all, the construction is solid. It was rather easy tcubo put together, the instructions are very easy to read, and it was put together rather quickly (my husband builds furniture for a living so he may have had an advantage). Once built, I noticed the amazing quality. It’s sturdy and looks very classy in our hallway, it’s a piece of furniture you can be happy to put on display. After a quick screw in the wall for the tether to prevent it from falling, it was ready to go!

There are 2 sides, which is perfect for us so each kid can have their own side. There’s a top cubby that we use for hats. Below that is a section with 4 hooks on each side to hang coats and bags. On the bottom is a little cubby for a 2-3 pairs of shoes. My girls have so many shoes but I put the ones out that they were most often. I seriously love being able to ask my daughter to her jacket, shoes, and school bag and she knows to hang her stuff up when she gets home. It’s so nice! I love that it’s also teaching her to be responsible for her own things and she also knows where she can find her school bag or coat, it’s always in the same spot that she put it. The great thing is multiple cubbies can be pushed together for more children and for day cares or schools!

I’m beyond impressed with Little Partners. The My First Cubby will complete any bedroom, foyer, or playroom! I give My First Cubby a 5 out of 5 stars, it’s been such a help in our house and while the cubby is available in two beautiful wood finishes, I would love to see options available in colors. Soon enough my youngest will be able to hang her coat and bag on her side, but for now, my oldest is happy to lend me a helping hand!

The Shelfie {Product Review}

Bathtime is a favorite in our house. My 3 year old would sit in the tub until the water was freezing and her little toes and fingers were pruned beyond recognition if I let her. She loves to act like she’s deep sea diving for her little sea creatures and she often says the ‘waves’ are out of control in the ocean, so she puts her animals on the edge of the tub, causing water to go everywhere. Mommy does not like cleaning up water off the floor every night after bathtime, although I’m sure the floor welcomes a nightly cleaning. That is why I am so thankful I came across this genius product that not only I love, but my daughter loves as well.   The Shelfie is a thick blue plastic shelf with about a 1 inch lip around and has 2 suction cups on each end (they’re really strong, too, and stick where you put them, even on the wall after bathtime) and adheres to the side of the tub. It allows little ones to be able to play on the edge of tub and it contains the water so you’re no longer cleaning up tons of water. However, it DOES NOT help protect your bathroom floor when your 3 year old decides to pore a bucket of water (twice) on it, as my daughter did the first night we used it. Luckily, she figured out that you cannot dump water on it, only play with her little animals and toys on it. She really loves being able to play on the side of the tub and even says it’s her animals ‘house’. When we’re not using it, I suction it to the wall or the tub so it’s out of the way, I don’t have to dry it every night and it’s always in reach for bathtime. If you’re tired of cleaning up sopping wet floors, check out The Shelfie. It’s now a must during every bath and it is super easy to use. I’m sure (sitting) babies would love to play on it as well. Again, just don’t let your little one(s) dump large amounts of water on it, you’ll be needing a lot of towels if you do! I would give this product 5 out of 5 stars, it really does chsnge the game of bathtime for us.
