I knew when I got pregnant I was going to have a hard time with all the "baby stuff." A) I hate clutter. B) There is very few baby items out there that are aesthetically pleasing. For most moms it doesn't bother them at all.. I wish I were one of those moms! But there are some of us out there, especially those of us who work in a design related field, who get panicky at all the plastic and primary colors while walking through Babies R Us.
I know, I've heard it before from friends - you get over it. But luckily there are companies that know the importance of form and function. 4Moms is one of those companies!
When I started researching items for my registry a couple months ago, I came across this video (yes I am a crazy researcher.. I was watching videos about the new baby products that were introduced at the October market):
And I was SOLD. Form, function and didn't take up a ton of space? I knew I was going to put the rockaRoo on my registry the second it came out (I had always planned on adding the mamaRoo, but was bummed when I read reviews saying they wish it rocked back and forth like a traditional swing).
Well, literally THAT SAME WEEK 4Moms contacted me about the rockaRoo Blog Tour and asked if I would be interested in receiving a rockaRoo and giving one away! Um, YEAH! It was meant to be!
As I mentioned earlier, since I'm a crazy researcher, FUNCTION is just as important as form. What's the point of a great looking baby item if the baby is going to hate it? Which is why I love the concept behind the rockaRoo (if you watch the video I posted, you'll see what I mean). But in short, here is thinking behind the engineering:
Why swing when you can rock? The 4moms rockaRoo flips the traditional swing on its head. Literally. It rocks like a rocking horse, which maximizes the sensation of motion for your baby. It features five speeds, an MP3 hook-up, and removable toy balls.
