Equipment, photos, equipment, children's - our list of models

Since we are sometimes asked about certain things, I decided to post a list of what we use here. And then it lies in my Evernote and does not bring any benefit, but in any case I always write down all the models, so that later I can quickly find what I have already bought, for advice to friends or to re-purchase, this is very convenient. Of course, something here is already outdated and not for sale, but most of the things are still in stores..

All products, especially appliances, I choose with great care. And it doesn't matter if it's a kettle for 800 rubles, or a MacBook for 50 thousand. It just so happened that I couldn't do otherwise, I definitely read the reviews and compare. Therefore, for many years no one has given me anything without my knowledge, they simply won’t guess. On the other hand, I do not consider myself a guru either, especially since everyone has different requirements and budgets. Nevertheless, I can recommend all of the above for purchase, since we use it ourselves and almost never have to change something..
