Tag*a*long Review

 

Have you heard of a tag*a*long?


It is a must have, especially if you have two toddler/pre-school age kids! 

From the website:
“this is how it all started- with an idea to make strolling with our walking little man a little easier. a prototype made with supplies found at our local hardware store and testing done in and around the city of brotherly love. we were so excited by what we found- we made more of them. these went to our baby having friends and the rest is- well, found below…the tag*a*long was designed, developed, and manufactured in the USA by a mom and dad design duo from philadelphia pa. have fun.”
Why try a tag*a*long? Tag*a*longs are useful on strollers, grocery carts, hanging off your diaper bag or purse… anywhere you can loop it through! Tag*a*longs keep your child close while still giving them a sense of independence. Use them at zoos, parks, museums, amusement parks, and play grounds!
My Take:
I have two little ones ages 3 1/2 and 2. Going anywhere with them alone is a huge chore, to say the least. I made the analogy just the other day… they act like two squirrels caught in the middle of the road with a car heading their directions. They scatter back and forth all over the aisles. I am sure if you were behind me you would wonder why I don’t just save my breath, “Emma, honey… this way”, “Ethan, come on Bubba”, “Uh uhhh… no touch!”, yadda yadda
yadda.
Today I had the privilege of trying out a tag*a*long during a trip to the grocery store. I was not happy about going alone, but a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do, right?
So I let Ethan play with the tag*a*long during the 15 minutes ride to the store to get accustomed to it. Once at the store, it took less than 5 seconds to loop the tag*a*long through the rung on the shopping cart and we were off. Ethan just turned two, so I thought this might be a stretch for him considering the tag*a*long is intended for ages 3 and up. He instinctively grasped for the straight part of it, but after I showed him how his hand loops through the circle he didn’t need to be shown again.
(Ethan using the tag*a*long)
There were only a few times that I had to remind him to grab his tag*a*long… he actually had fun doing it! With Ethan not running down the aisle, Emma stayed close to the cart also!! I was thrilled, to say the least. I know that this will take a little “training”, but Ethan caught on quickly and Emma is asking for one for herself. I’m thinking one in raspberry might be in order for her :O).
My final thoughts on the tag*a*long? It is made of a nice durable plastic that is bpa free, attaches and detaches easily onto just about any loopable surface, it is easy to wipe down/clean and it fits nicely into the diaper bag! I would highly recommend one to anyone with young children that are wanting a little independence while out in public.
