Remember this vintage toy? The Fisher Price Cash Register is a throwback to the 70’s – share the fun with your kids too.
The Helpful Dad loves to cook and loves this handy little tool from The Pampered Chef. It’s a MUST have if you cook with a lot of garlic… As an FYI, you can get just the peeler for about $8 but if you want the slicer too, see below…
Pampered Chef says…

You want to buy a train table but are not sure if you should get an ‘official’ Thomas Table or buy a less expensive one from Imaginarium or similar ‘generic’ brand. What do you get for your money and what should you know? The Helpful Dad provides you some things to consider as you make your decision.
For Ages 3+ per manufacturer (despite what video says).
The Helpful Dad says this is a quality product that really works. Although this pack doesn’t include Lightning, it’s still a good buy for only $8-12 b/c the cars are easy to use and go fast.
Here’s the official review:
Tow Mater and his friends The King and Ramone are charged up and ready to go with this Disney Cars Turbo Pullback Racer Set. Just pull them back, then let go to launch them forward for some high speed fun.
Want a durable EASEL for your child to draw on? Perhaps one with a chalkboard AND dry erase/magnetic boards? Then check out the Crayola Double-sided Easel. The Helpful Dad gives this 4 of 5 stars.
Here’s the official description:
“Magnetic/Dry Erase and Chalkboard provides a large work area. Each board includes a Clip to hold paper. Surfaces are easy to wipe clean. 4 detachable storage bins for holding art accessories. Folding easel for easy storage. Product includes: Eraser, 77 Magnetic Letters & Numbers. “
Is your Toddler a Cars Fan? Does he/she love Lightning McQueen? Are you looking for a Ride-On Toy? If you answered “yes” to each of those questions, then this is the toy for you!
The Helpful Dad gives this 5 Stars – it’s durable, fun, and will keep your toddler’s attention for month’s to come. We’ve had ours for over a year and Jax is still using it every day. Just be careful – once your toddler gets the hang of it, they can speed around the floor and run you over! 🙂
This is a MUST HAVE for Cars Fans.
Does your toddler love Chuck? Then consider this toy. The Helpful Dad says ‘be sure to compare the Playskool version to the Tonka version” to see which one you like best. We believe the Playskool version is the better buy – for 1/2 the price you get similar features.
Here’s an official description:
“Your toddler will have loads of dump-truck fun with Playskool’s Chuck My Talking Truck. Not only does Chuck have over 40 spoken phrases and sounds, he also drives to you when called and shakes his bumper and dump bed while chatting and “working.” Designed for children ages two and up, Chuck My Talking Truck offers your child interactive fun and role-playing opportunities.”
Has your toddler outgrown their high chair but you don’t want to get them one of those ugly plastic booster seats? Then consider the Cooshie – The Helpful Dad owns this seat and my son loves it. I give it 4 of 5 stars – the only negative is it’s a bit pricey. Try to pick it up around $30-40 and you’ll be in good shape.
