Tag *A*Long Review & Giveaway ~ CLOSED!!!

I was given the opportunity to review the Tag *A*Long.  I was very excited to try out this product.  Jayden is a very busy 2 year old now and the Tag A*Long seemed to be an item that could help me out when at the store.

What is the Tag *A*Long?
  The tag*a*long is a plastic handle that attaches to most strollers and grocery carts.  This handle is perfect size for little hands to hold onto.  It is a one piece design made from Engage from Dow.  Engage is like a cross between plastic and rubber.  It is very flexible and durable.  The tag*a*long is lead as well as bpa free and meets the new CPSC’s CPSIA standards.  It takes only seconds to attach this handle to a stroller or grocery cart.  Once it is attached they your child has a place to hold on.  The tag*a*long was designed, developed, and manufactured in the USA by a mom and dad design duo from Philadelphia, PA.

   The handle is in the shape of a circle that is closed off and it has a tooth, so it looks like a smiley face.  It comes in different bright colors.  The look of it makes it appealing to children.

Recommendations:

Use under adult supervision and with discretion at all times.
Recommended ages are 3 and up.
Do not use the tag*a*long to lift or carry the stroller.
Keep it clean! Wash with soap and warm water as needed.

How did it work for us?
   Jayden and I went to a couple of stores to try this out.  The first store we went to was Big Lots.  I attached the tag*a*long to the side of the cart.  The carts at Big Lots made it a little more difficult because they have the honeycomb shape as you can see from the photos.  But it did attach!   Jayden held on and walked with me.  After a short time in the store Jayden began to walk away from the cart.  I stopped him and reminded him to hold on the the handle and he quickly grabbed on again.  It was nice to give him a direction of where to hold.  He would pull on the handle like he was pulling the cart himself.  I think he would have loved to have the handle in the front and just pull.  Jayden did a good job using the handle at Big Lots.  He did need reminders, but it was our first time using it. 

   Next we went to Fry's Grocery store.  The tag*a*long attached to this cart very easily.  Of course there are many more people at the grocery store.  Jayden started out holding the handle well.  He needed more reminders at the grocery store.  But again having a specific place to send him was great.  Jayden would switch hands that he held on with, but for the most part did well staying near the cart.  I think with a little practice the tag*a*long will be very helpful to keep Jayden near me at stores and anywhere else we use it. 


Would I recommend this product to you?  YES!  I think this is a great idea and it would be very helpful for a mom or dad that just needs a little help with an active child.  I think that Jayden will continue to practice using this and it will be great.  The manufacturer recommends age 3 and up, but says they have had success with 2 year olds.  I think that Jayden can be very successful with more exposure to using the tag*a*long. 

You can purchase the Tag*A*Long for only $9.99 plus shipping and handling.  You can even purchase the tag*a*long from Amazon

  53. I would definitely choose blueberry! I would use mine when we go to the grocery store, too. My 3 year old never wants to sit in the cart and when he's walking he has a tendency to run away. :) Maybe this would help.

  64. I would choose the raspberry (it's more likely my son will hold on to his favorite color). I would use it on the stroller and shopping cart. I would also find a way to attach it to my ERGO or my beltloops, too. Too often lately I've had my hands full of babies and groceries and needed my toddler to hold onto me, but he doesn't understand how to hold onto my pocket - this would be perfect!
