FunPod Review and Magic Craft Bundle Giveaway

Biggest enjoys the FunPod from Little Helper

Little Helper offer a range of brilliant kid-friendly furniture that help your child to get creative and have fun while staying safe. We were lucky enough to try out the FunPod – a multi-functional kitchen and craft safety stand that comes in a version that doubles up as a high-chair. The FunPod High-Chair is a pretty nifty piece of kit. Both Biggest and Littlest loved it and have been using several of its functions.

In addition, we are giving away a brilliant Magic Craft Bundle from Little Helper – just the thing to get your little ones imaginations and creative sides buzzing. Please see the Rafflecopter below for details as to how to enter the competition.

FunPod High-Chair Review

 

The brilliant thing about the FunPod High-Chair is that is is actually five products in one. It can be used as a safety stand in the kitchen, a conventional high-chair, a low chair, can be used with or without the tray AND it is entirely height adjustable. This means it can be used with bigger kids and babies alike from six months to five years. Biggest is getting the most use from using the pod to help in the kitchen. We made the delicious and simple Festive Gingerbread Recipe from Laura at Life with Baby Kicks and Biggest absolutely loved helping out in the FunPod –

For us, the extra stability and safety than the FunPod provides is invaluable. Biggest has delayed fine and gross motor skills relating to his autism and probable dyspraxia. This means he has poor balance and he finds climbing on to steps and maintaining balance very difficult. The FunPod removed this problem entirely and, as a result, he was able to enjoy baking with me for the first time. He did not become distressed or uncomfortable once. We spent a wonderful afternoon and I hope it is the first of many. I will certainly remember it for a long time.

Littlest is using the other functions of the chair more at the moment, though she has used the safety stand a few times too. She most enjoys using the stand alone low-level chair, as is enables her to colour and craft in different locations easily. The high-chair function is also great as the overall pod is so sturdy and secure.

Verdict

The FunPod High-Chair is great. It’s well-made, sturdy, and all the functions work brilliantly. I would say there is only one real disadvantage, and that is the price. The high-chair version retails at £219.19. I agree, this is a lot. However, many stylish wooden high-chairs are priced similarly. In addition, the fact that the FunPod can be used from six months right up to five years, and the fact that it has several uses, means that you could get A LOT of use and value for money from the product. If you have two children who are a few years apart, you could conceivably use it for many years.

Little Helper also sell the FunPod without the high-chair attachment, in a range of colours, for the lower price of £117.99.

    I’m entering this for my niece. This would be perfect for her as she’s just discovered play dough and loves it! I think she’d love this too 🙂

    I would use the FunPod with my daughter! She loves helping out in the kitchen and helping mummy or daddy when they are baking! I love its design! Our favourite family crafts usually involve painting or playdoh! We love painting little ceramics and i keep a keen eye looking for them in the local pound shops! We got magic sand from Santa and waiting for a rainy day to get into that !! I don’t know who likes the crafts more me or them !!!

    I would like to use the fun pod as a highchair and a crafting table for my baby daughter. Great prize. Tanks for running 🙂

    We like baking muffins and simple biscuits – FunPod sounds great for that. My kids are not that clumsy but can be all over the place in the kitchen and the FunPod would keep them safe.

    The funpod would be for my sister and her daughter(my neice) … she is just two and loves baking, crafting and sitting up at the big table with mummy. The craft bundle would be for my daughters and I .. They are both ASD and love to craft!!

    We would use the funpod for helping my little boy feel a bit more independant and letting him help make his meals ie breakfast, sandwiches, baking etc. He loves helping in the kitchen but i’m very wary of allowing him so this would make is so much easier and safe.

    I love doing arts and crafts with the girls, they are 6,8 and 14 and all love getting their hands dirty with paints and clay and papier mache.

    What a wonderful idea! My daughter likes to help me do everything in the kitchen so we would use it so she can be my helper easily!

    I would use it with my two little nieces to bake and paint stuff!
    I like to take them on walks finding things we can do craft bits with, like leaves in pretty colours and shapes

    We had a Funpod (still got it in fact, need to sell it) and used it a lot when my son was younger. He was always keen to help and watch with the cooking and it was the only safe way to do it. Chairs just weren’t safe.

    Me and my Daughter are forever making things from paper mache but she also recently become obsessed with digging dinosaur bones/fossils from inside blocks of hard chalk. They come with a small chisel and brush to get them out.. can be messy but she absolutely loves it

    My great niece loves craft play and likes making things. Her little sister is right by her and they often squabble as she interferes!

    It would be perfect for our youngest so we we can all bake in safety without standing on wobbly steps. Ideal for our fabulous art and craft sessions too.

    I’d do similar to you and use it so I could cook and bake with my son, he usually ends up sitting on my knee which isn’t very practical or safe.

    Caroline Smith

    All my girls love baking but the youngest is too small to reach the top of the worktops – this would be great for her so she feels like she isn’t left out!

    I would use the FunPod for crafting activities with my granddaughter. She got a tub of craft items for Christmas and loves sticking sequins, felt shapes, pompoms, twigs and other things onto paper. The results are a bit random as she’s not quite 2 years old, but she really enjoys the activity.
