Step2 Is Making Parker’s Summer Shine Brighter: A Review And Giveaway

Comments are now closed.

Note: This is a compensated (Parker received his Sand and Water Transportation Station for free) review and giveaway from Step2.


It was a warm summer’s morning. Parker had been signing “outside” since he woke up, hours before.

Finally, after the medications, the morning therapies, bath time, trach change and breakfast, it was time to go outside.


When you are a medically fragile kid with special needs your whole world becomes the area within your backyard fence.


And it is your Mom’s job to try and provide as many typical experiences as possible.


Despite all the cords, tubing and bags and bottles that trail after you each step of the way.

Because typical is often found in the eye of the beholder.


On this most magical of mornings, Parker stepped out into his world to discover the Sand and Water Transportation Station sent to him by Step2 toys.

We set Parker’s table up with rice and water. Because sand and trachs make this Mama even more nervous than usual. But the beauty is that you can use anything in this toy made by Step2.

Different colors of water.
Clear water with different colors of ice cubes.
Dried beans and lentils.

Only your imagination limits you and your child’s experience with this toy.


And may I just say, Parker luuuurved this toy. Thank you, Step2


He delighted in it.


He engaged with this toy. Which made his Mama’s heart sing.
