Fisher Price Rant
When we go out to buy our children "stuff", a lot of us look at the brand name. There are some manufacturers that we know we can trust to give us a quality product for the vast sums of money that they demand. I used to be a believer in Fisher Price . Not so anymore. We spent a hundred bucks (on sale) on the fancy fisher price ocean wonders swing. We bought the ocean wonders portable swing, too. We got him the ocean wonders high chair. We had to return the larger swing because it didn't EVER work right. Even the replacement wasn't that great, we hardly ever used it, and now there is a hundred dollar swing in pieces in his closet. Sigh. Today we had to return his high chair (the one I showed ya'll just last week, when we bought it)and get it replaced (driving to a different town to get the replacement). Indy's grandma donkey bought him a little musical fisher price toy. It broke in the first 3 days. Just stopped working. For NO reason. He didn't break it; No one stepped on it. It just doesn't work. So, if anyone has a suggestion for a different, more trustworthy children's "stuff" maker, I am ready to buy from someone else now and would welcome input!
