KID tested... Globber My Free 4 in 1

Over the past few months I’ve been keeping my eyes peeled for a fun and functional trike for my little guy. I wanted something that would allow my toddler more freedom on the way to the park, whilst also being safe. This week I tested out the Globber My Free 4 in 1… and so far it has been a big winner.

Globber My Free 4 in 1

The Globber My Free 4 in 1 is designed to help little folk learn how to ride and scoot at a pace that is suitable for their individual needs. The first setting is designed for kids that are still a little unsteady on their feet (12 months +) with a handle attached at the back for pushing and guiding.

Once your child is more confident (15 months +) you can remove the handle and use the Globber as a stand alone tricycle. Finally, when your little one is ready you can transform your Globber into scooter mode (24 months +), which will hold kids up to 50kg.

I liked how the Globber is fully adjustable with 2 seat positions and 4 handlebar positions. There’s a steering lock button on the front which helps with steering and handling, and the wheels are awesome quality which means that they will last the distance.

The coolest thing about this Globber is that it grows with your child. This not only saves you money, it also gives your child a sense of satisfaction as they try out their new skills on their familiar old friend. This model is available in pink or blue at a RRP of $160. You can also purchase just the scooter version for $120 and a range of other styles for bigger kids and adults too.

The verdict… innovative, sleek, and super fun!

The creative mind behind Red Wagon, Jen, has a love for vintage and retro children’s toys. She says, “Hunting for and collecting toys is one of my favourite pass-times. For the last 10 years, I have taught children with Autism how to play, be creative and come out of their shells. I’ve just recently made my debut into motherhood and I’m looking forward to teaching and playing with my little boy as he grows. With Red Wagon, I enjoy creating custom products and toys that reminisce on days gone by, to help children’s imaginations blossom and let kids be kids”.

KID tested... Bitybean UltraCompact Baby Carrier

Hooray for the weekend! Today I’d like to introduce KID independent reader, Lisa from Victoria, who has joined us to share her review of the Bitybean UltraCompact baby carrier. This carrier is designed for infants and toddlers over 3 months (up to 40 pounds / 18kgs). It weighs a tiny 8oz (226g) and folds up to the size of a child’s water bottle. Take it away Lisa!

Lisa’s Review…

I’ve been using the Bitybean for a few weeks now and I can’t leave home without it!

When the carrier arrived in the mail, I couldn’t get over how light and compact it is, folding up to size of a pair of sunglasses! I had been using another baby carrier and although it’s great, it’s also pretty big and bulky.

My baby is five months old and is currently going through a fussy period, sometimes he is happy to be in the pram and other times he would rather be in my arms. The Bitybean has made my life easy, because it’s always with me, it gives me the option to strap him in and keep on walking, crisis adverted.

The carrier is comfortable to wear and easy to adjust with my baby inside. He finds it quite comfy too, and has fallen asleep in the Bitybean on a few occasions.

I have to mention that it would be best to wait until your baby can support their own head before using this carrier as it doesn’t offer a lot of neck support.

I love that the carrier is made from waterproof material, which makes it easy to keep clean and dry, especially after being covered in baby drool. Once the weather warms up I can’t wait to use it in the water too. What a great idea!

I would definitely recommend the Bitybean carrier to other parents, as it is so easy to use, can be taken anywhere, and my baby loves it!

I’m looking forward to many more outings with my Bitybean carrier.
