For Sale: Sturdy White Baby Compactum – R1,200 For Sale 21 JAN 2014

Please note that this item has since been sold and is no longer available for purchase.

Although we’ve just had our second baby arrive on the scene, unfortunately the room that she now calls her own simply doesn’t have enough floor space to accommodate the beautifully sturdy and neat white compactum that we used first time around for Jessica.

I’ve attached a picture to this advert showing my three year old Jessica standing in front of the compactum to give you a good sense of its size, and as you can see, this tall, spacious work space comes with ample storage area in the form of four sturdy pull-out drawers and a vertical, shelved cupboard to the side. Its height is perfect for working with a baby, saving one a lot of backache in the process, and is definitely one of those must haves if you have the floor space for it!

We’re selling it for R1200, which seems a good price if I take into account other similar items for sale on Gumtree and OLX.

Please note it is fairly large and you will therefore have to arrange transport for it, either in the form of a trailer, bakkie or truck. (Unfortunately I can’t help you out on that front. My little Hyundai Getz just doesn’t cut it!)

The Fountain of Jessica Jessica 08 JUL 2011

Ha ha, that little smiley rascal of mine went and played a nasty little trick on Daddy the other night.

Come evening I collected my soft and cuddly bundle of joy up from the activity mat, took her into her room and deposited her squarely on top the changing sponge (which is on top of the compactum) in order to prepare her for her (almost) nightly bath.

I carefully removed all of her clothes, tickled her tummy, played with her nose, and then gave her the ever popular Mr Springy Bee to play with as I proceeded to get the bath water and towel ready for splash time.

Finally, I removed her nappy and proceeded to dispose of it in the bin. However, as I turned around from throwing the stinky offender away, there was the little naked Jessica lying on her back, huge smile on her face and a miniature fountain spewing up into the air, as the pee pooled around her and quickly trickled down the drawers of the compactum, pausing for just long enough to enter each and every drawer and wet at least one item.

All while she had the biggest smile you have ever seen on her face.

She does this on purpose you know, I’m sure of it!
