I think we finally are starting to feel spring! I was thrilled to spend several hours outside with the boys this afternoon. Up until yesterday we have been stuck indoors day dreaming of warmer weather. As I have told you all before, I am very proud to be a Step2 Test Drive mom. What does that mean? Well, we receive new products from Step2 each season to try out and share with you. I am thrilled to be a part because Step2 has been a long time friend to our family with products that are long standing and fun. We still have several Step2 outdoor products we use that have been passed down from my now 12 year old niece! Quality.
For spring we were sent the MailMaster® Hudson Mailbox with Planter™ as well as Cappy Coaster™. Both have been beneficial to us in very different ways. My husband was just able to put the Hudson Mailbox with Planter up this weekend, so we have not gotten a ton of use out of it yet, but I am here to tell you that it is sturdy! Sturdy is important when it comes to our poor mailboxes. We live on a very busy street and our mailbox is right off of the main road. It is such a crazy road that my husband prefers it if only he checks the mail. Our mailboxes have been hit on several different occasions which has prompted several of our neighbors to start using steel rods as the posts. No kidding. Not only is the Hudson Mailbox sturdy, but it also has a built in plater on the back! What a fun touch especially if you live in a neighborhood where your mailbox is directly in your yard. We do not currently have any plants in it because of the weather. I plan on putting something in there this weekend and making it colorful! $99.99 with $4.99 shipping from Step2.com.
The Cappy Coaster ride-on toy has been put to the test indoors. Davis really loves it and you can even find Graham on it on occasion (yes, he is WAY too big for it, but he tries anyway). Davis (age 2) is the perfect size for Cappy Coaster. I appreciate the nice size and that his wheels are big enough to take on the outdoors. Cappy Coaster’s back portion slops up slightly which makes it easier for your child to stay in place. The size is also great for keeping the ride-on on all fours instead of him tipping over. He seems to be pretty easy for Davis to maneuver around corners as well. The best news? Cappy Coaster is only $24.99 and ships from Step2.com for only $2.99.
