As a blogger who does product reviews, I usually have a chance to try a product out for a week or two before I write up a review about it. A few weeks, or a few months down the road I often feel like I have a thing or two I'd like to add to my original review. Things I really feel like I should share with you guys, like I was wrong don't put that in the washing machine! So here are a few of my review items, revisited:
Indestructibles - my original review
Boikido Blocks - my original review
Little Cool Toys! I would say these would be great for a window display, knick knacks in a baby's room... that sort of thing. Not for every day play by young kids, as the durability is definitely lacking.
Bibagogo - my original review
Maileg Dolls - my original review (medium mouse), (small mouse with box)
We are absolutely in love with our Maileg critters. The larger sized Miss Mousie continues to often be Baby-G's bedtime snuggle companion of choice. The girls play with these dolls fairly regularly, and they are holding up quite nicely. If only I could say the same about the cardboard "match"boxes that came with the wee mice. I am sad to say they are looking a little worse for wear and should probably be retired. This is less the fault of the really quite sturdy thick cardstock boxes, then it is mine for handing them over to a three year old. For older kids, like say 5 and up, I'd still definitely recommend the wee mice with their matchbox beds. However, I'd suggest sticking with the larger dolls for younger kids.
Baby Gourmet - my original review
We love Baby Gourmet. I thought I would mention that the fact that both my girls are now well past the Baby Food stage doesn't stop me from still buying this on a regular basis. And eating it. Yum. I am looking forward to trying out the new "protein" flavours that are debuting in 2012.
Earthlust Water Bottle - my original review
Alegria Shoes - my original review
My Alegria shoes have entirely changed my monogamous shoe relationship. I am now a two-pairs of shoes gal. Heck, I've even been tempted to go out and buy another pair of Alegrias, and own (gasp) three different pairs of shoes. Alegria Shoes ROCK. They are SO comfy. Those rocking soles, once you get used to them, are fantastic. I've owned these shoes for a little over four months, and they still look like new, and not because I haven't been wearing them. I often get complimented on them and have had several discussions with complete strangers about what great shoes they are.
Fluf Organic Cotton Lunch Bag - my original review
Now it doesn't look that bad, but for something that's only been through the washer twice that's a fair bit of wear. Not sure what I did wrong, as I followed the tag instructions - hand wash, or cold water machine wash, lay flat to dry.
So there you have it folks, eight products that I thought deserved a quick revisit. I hope you found the additional info useful. Based on reader requests, I also have a TASSIMO vs Nescafe Dolce Gusto review in the works. Any thoughts on other products you'd like to see receive follow-up info?
Disclosure: All of these are items I originally received for review. I wasn't requested to write about them a second time and no further compensation was received.
