The funpod is fantastic. It's just brilliant to have a safe place to put my daughter where she can help out with the cooking and be at the right level to see what's going on. We got ours when my daughter was 14 months and she's now just over 2. She loves going in it, hiding in it and jumping up to "surprise" me. It's pretty easy to clean and it feels solid. However, I do still wince at the price. It's just a bit too expensive for what it is. I also wouldn't buy it unless you have a spacious kitchen as it does take up a lot of room.
