Our downstairs has been in disarray for two weeks now, much to Sebby and Quincy’s dismay. If you recall, we had a failed tile job that delayed things. Neither one is still allowed in the living room, because to be honest, vapor barrier and subfloor isn’t really something they can play on. Quincy is just starting to figure out the walking thing, so when the Joovy Spoon in Purpleness arrived at our doorstep at the beginning of the week, I was estatic. After being confined to her high chair or her room (and occasionally outside when it wasn’t raining) for the previous 10 days, she wanted some freedom.
Why we love the Joovy Spoon
The smartly designed Spoon from Joovy was the answer to her freedom, and it iradicated the mommy guilt I was having not being able to allow her to roam free in the kitchen because of all the construction in our adjoining living room.
Now, I’ll be honest, I am not a fan of most baby walkers. Overly structured baby containment devices with 100 toys attached to every blank surface is just not my idea of practical. ADHD central! Not good!
The Joovy Spoon is sleek, clean and height adjustable. Why is this important? Because your little one’s feet should be FLAT on the floor when they are in any sort of walker, saucer etc. There are 3 height adjustments, and will accomodate a child up to 30 pounds and 33 inches tall. For petite Quincy, this is good news! It’s wide base design should also keep her fingers from being pinched if she attempts to venture through a door way or bangs up against a wall.
Plus, it’s easy to clean and with the nice large tray, free of clutter, Quincy can eat her favorite animal crackers AND play with a puzzle at the same time. An added bonus? The tray snaps out so easily for cleaning, and it’s dishwasher safe!
Set up was a breeze. The Spoon was almost ready to go out of the box, I just snapped in the wheels and the washable (MACHINE WASHABLE) Purpleness cover and adjusted it to the right height and we were ready to roll. Best deal? When it’s not in use it easily folds down for storage, which is BRILLIANT.
The verdict? We love it! Quincy is happy that she can chill with us without me worrying about her crawling around on the dusty floor. Plus, it exercises her leg muscles, which is important. It’s a real win win.
