And since we’re about to wrap-up 2018, let me also share with you some of the best items which I purchased throughout the year.

For now, let me give you the 30 of the best items which gave me my money’s worth.

While enumerating, I will also provide the things which I liked and did not like (if any) about the product to give a quick review.

And in light of the Grand Year-End Sale, I will also indicate the anticipated price of the product come 12.12 (or as early as December 10th) in case the said product is included in the sale.

These are the products which I received in very good condition and with quality that met my expectations (I broke them down per category):


Baby Products

1. Baby Wipes

Regular Price: P595.00
12.12 Price: P540.00

Liked: These wipes are very safe to my baby’s skin so I did not have to worry about her developing rashes and any irritation.

Disliked: Some sheets are sticking tightly together that’s why there were times when I would dispose more than a single sheet at a time.

2. High Chair

Regular Price: P2,399.00
12.12 Price: P1,899.00

Liked: The design of this high chair is very simple, perfect for minimalists. 

It’s very easy to clean because it doesn’t have any fabric so you can even spray water on it if you want to do some deep-cleaning.

It’s also very sturdy and durable.

I purchased this when my baby was about to turn 6 months to start with the baby-led weaning and she’s still using it now that she’s more than a year old.

Disliked: The safety belt may not be enough for some babies who are very active so very close supervision is highly encouraged.

Here’s a video showing my baby using this high chair when she was only 7 months old during Stage 2 of Baby-Led Weaning.

3. Spill-Proof Trainer Cup

Regular Price: P520.00
12.12 Price: Not participating

Liked: It’s 100% authentic and original product.

The quality is really good based on the texture of materials used in making this trainer cup.

Disliked: Most babies would need to do some training before they get used to drinking through this cup.

Since my baby is a little impatient, she would sometimes get irritated especially when there’s no water coming out.

4. Feeding Bowl and Spoon

Regular Price: P299.00
12.12 Price: P265.00

Liked: This was the very first feeding bowl set I gave to my baby when she started with Stage 1 of Baby-Led Weaning.

The quality is really good and it’s easy to clean.

The suction feature works just fine. My baby loves the spoon and she tends to eat more with it.

Disliked: It’s a little easy for babies to figure out how to lift the bowl once they have fully developed Pincer Grasp.

5. Placemat Plate Tray

Regular Price: P369.00
12.12 Price: P350.00

Liked:
I just recently bought this item since my baby has officially become a toddler and we’ve entered the Stage 3 of Baby-Led Weaning.

This perfectly fits her High Chair and has a very good quality.

Disliked: None so far.

Regular Price: P2,499.00
12.12 Price: Not Participating

Liked: The quality is very good and my baby found it comfortable to sit here.

Disliked: Although this came with a play tray, we’re still not able to make use of it because it was easy for my baby to remove it.

It’s also a little hard to put in place (not sure if I was just not doing it right).

It would also have been better if this chair had a safety belt instead of the play tray.

8. Soft Chair

Regular Price: P425.00
12.12 Price: Not participating

Liked: The size of this soft chair was just right and my baby was comfortable while sitting on it. It allows the baby to learn how to sit when they’re still learning that skill.

Disliked: This is not recommended for babies who are very active because they’re at risk of suffocation if not supervised well.

It’s lightweight and doesn’t get fixed on the floor so it’s very easy for babies to roll-over while seated.

10. Inflatable Outdoor Swimming Pool

Regular Price: P559.00
12.12 Price: P503.00

Liked: My baby graduated from using her Shnuggle Baby Bath Tub and she started playing with water more so I decided to buy her this inflatable pool.

The size of this pool is just perfect for my 1 year old, not too large but not too small.

It’s durable because the material is thick.

Disliked: This did not come with a pump so we needed to look for one in order to inflate it.

There’s another package that comes with a free pump but it’s a bit more costly, of course.

Hoopchina Childproof Drawer Locks
Hoopchina Childproof Drawer Locks

My baby’s no longer able to open the drawers after we’ve placed these locks because it would require an adult intervention for these to get unlocked.

And my list ends there….but only for 2018 LOL!

Looks like my Lazada list has become a yearly thing due to the number of items that I purchase every now and then.

One thing I noticed was that the quality of the items that I got for year 2018 was a lot better than the previous year.

This was due to the fact that I learned how to search for quality items.

You can also achieve this by carefully reading feedback and comments from previous buyers.

That’s why it’s also important to keep in mind that leaving your honest and objective feedback and comments on those items you’ve purchased are very helpful and important.

I hope I was able to help you decide.

How about you?

What are your best Lazada purchases for this year?
