KidCo Go-Pod (Review & Giveaway)

(My friends, I have saved the best for last... This will be my last giveaway of 2012, and it is by far one of the very best products and giveaways I have had the pleasure of sharing with you!) 


You now those folding camping chairs?  The kind that fold up, fit in a nice little bag, are super light weight and can be carried over your shoulder?  Well, the geniuses at the KidCo company have created a baby exersaucer that can do the same thing!  It's called the KidCo Go-Pod, and it is AMAZING!

I was in total disbelief when I saw one for the first time.  How can something so light weight, that requires NO assembly, be sturdy enough to hold my near 26-pound 2 1/2 foot tall baby?  Well, my friends, it does, and well!

I could continue to gush over this wonderful invention, but I think I will just let a few pictures write this post for me.  I have no doubt you will get all of the information you need from the following pictures.....


The box shows up at my door.... 



This amazing invention is just a few inches longer than Ollie's favorite toy!

I take it out of it's box. As promised it is fully assembled...


And it's just as wide as his fire engine.



Just like one of those folding chairs, it slides easily out of it's carrying case...


Right out of the bag, no assembly needed!


BAM!  It pops open into what I call a portable exercauser, and what KidCo refers to as a "portable activity seat." Bottom line: It's a super awesome portable baby docking station!
Seriously, it just popped open!

One quick adjustment....

FOUR height adjustment levels to fit any baby perfectly!
                         
I clipped the closest toys I could find on, added some snacks and a sippy cup...

Cup and snack holder, with loops for toys.
GENIUS!!
Then added Oliver....

Ollie was as excited as I was.
So much so, he dumped his snacks out!
One Happy Baby...

Once I put the snacks directly in the holder we were back in business!
Nothing says happy baby and mommy like a sturdy portable docking station!

Mom tested... kid approved.
As you can see, the Go-Pod is amazing!  The easy setup is fantastic. The Go-Pod locks in place making it very sturdy, even holding 26 pounds of crazy baby.  The cup holders and loops for toys make it versatile for adding your bubs favorite toys and snacks.  And when you are finished using the Pod, it really just folds right up, slides easily into its carrying bag and off you go!  Seriously, one minute set up and take down. 

The Go-Pod is perfect for travel, picnics in the park and afternoons at a friends house. I cannot say enough! And since the Go-Pod fits all FAA dimensions for on-board travel, I plan to take it with us on our flight to Australia so Ollie can stand up during the layovers. Oh my goodness I LOVE this thing!

Huh... that's pretty awesome! They are the same ones who did the baby tent bassinet thing, right? Either way, perfect for travel (ahem)...
