If you’re looking for the perfect gift to give a new mommy and/or daddy in your life, look no further than the Toy Nanny, an innovative new product created by 2 Red Hens.
Traveling with babies and all of their luggage is tough. So, when it comes to settling down at grandma’s, a friends house, a play group, or at the park (all after toting around all of that stuff) you just want to sit down and take a break. But where do you tend to put baby? Most likely you lay him or her down on the floor.
Then gradually (in the back of your mind) you probably begin to wonder just how sanitary this typical play spot is– not that grandma doesn’t do a good job of cleaning. But you want what’s best for your child, right? All parents do!
And so, our first thought is, roll out a blanket and lay baby on that. But blankies tend to bunch up with movement and once again your child is exposed to the floor (or ground). THEN what do you do? Lugging around a heavy, bulky playard is most likely out of the question considering everything else you have to carry. And keeping baby in her car seat is no fun. A really great alternative to this madness is the Toy Nanny!
This ingenious product is 3 products in one — a play mat, carrying (diaper) bag for storage, and it’s great as a changing pad!
When Toy Nanny is first removed from it’s packaging and in it’s fully opened position it looks like and can be used as a play mat. But once playtime is over, clasp the hook, and grab and pull the straps that are embedded within the outer rim of the mat. When pulled tight the straps can be carried over your shoulder as the mat has now become a bag.
1.) Toy Nanny comes folded & secured w/a button closure 2.) Button closure
3.) Embedded straps 4.) Clasp hook to change to bag
5.) Pull straps & slide fabric tight 6.) Keep gathering the fabric & pull straps tight
For easy storage, when you’re gathering and pulling the straps, carefully pull them up around your child’s toys so the bag can keep the toys safe and sound.
If your child is too young for toys, Toy Nanny can also be used as a changing mat — store diapers, wipes and other essentials inside the inner mesh pockets and when baby needs a changing, Toy Nanny provides a convenient location for diaper changes, no matter where you are.
Speaking of clean, the Toy Nanny is machine washable so don’t worry about spills or spit-ups, just toss it in the washer, as needed.
Toy Nanny is available in 5 attractive, custom designed vintage-inspired patterns: Pink Lemonade, Chevron Stripes, Owl Dots, Grey Damask, and Peacock Mum.
Pretty darned stylish, right?
Toy Nanny makes the perfect gift for moms-on-the-go… and dads too!
