I am not big on lots of baby gear. Being in an urban setting, our space is limited. While we have a lot more space in our new home, it is still a rowhouse with narrow rooms and passages easily blocked by chunky baby gear. And let's face it, even if you have a huge house, you don't want it cluttered with baby stuff you don't need. An item must absolutely prove its worth to me to take up space in our home. The Go-Pod has proved its worth. And as an added bonus, it doesn't take up much space.
The Go-Pod is basically an exersaucer that folds up and fits into a tiny little bag. There's no taking it apart to make it fit. You just push a button and it folds in. You can hook your baby's favorite toys to it and there is even a place for sippy cups and such.
I was very lucky. I found our Go-Pod for half of retail price on craigslist. It had been used once and the seller still had all the original packaging. When Baby Anne tried it out, she loved it. In fact at this point she seems more comfortable in the Go-Pod than she does in the exersaucer.
We will be using the Go-Pod when gardening in the back and playing in the front. We will take it on overnight trips. I may even move the exersaucer to our basement family room and use the Go-Pod in the upstairs living room so we can fold it away when it is not needed. I am sold on this product.
