Performance-wise, the Pobabies performs moderately when blending basic preparations, from baby food to fruity concoctions. However, when faced with challenging ingredients such as icy fruits, greens, or oats, its efficiency diminishes. In contrast, La Reveuse handles these challenges with relatively good results, without the necessity of pre-cutting ingredients as required by Pobabies.

Structurally, the PopBabies offers a cute design, but its build quality is questionable. Notably, its blades seem subpar, and the blending cup, made of hard plastic, shows signs of wear quickly.

Ultimately, the ideal blender varies based on individual needs. Sporting a corded design, La Reveuse contrasts with the battery-operated Pobabies, making the latter an ally for travel enthusiasts and campers. But for those who emphasize blending efficacy and versatility, the La Reveuse is the preferred choice.

Pros & Cons

  • The motor doesn’t struggle much to handle frozen fruits. 
  •  User-friendly design allows for easy control and operation.
  • The cordless design allows for blending on-the-go. 
  • It is pretty useful when it comes to making small batches of baby food and fresh fruit smoothies.
  • The battery is easy to charge.
  • The narrow design makes the blending cup tricky to clean. 
  • The blending cup's small opening makes it quite messy to add food, especially powders.

  • The cup’s small capacity limits the quantity of ingredients.
  • Food must be cut into very small pieces before blending.
