Boon {Review & Giveaway} CLOSED

“A boon is defined as “a benefit bestowed, especially one bestowed in response to a request.” Each one of our products offers a boon to parents by helping to make their everyday lives a bit easier while incorporating great design at an affordable price.”

Boon sent me a Fluid Toddler Cup and Groovy Interlocking Plate and Bowl Set for review.

When I first laid eyes on the Fluid Toddler Cup by Boon, I knew it was something that I wanted to try. I love the fact that it is BPA and PVC-free and dishwasher safe. It is also very unique in design and has an ergonomic, two-handed grip that is perfect for small hands. I couldn’t wait for Cooper to give it a try!

The first time Cooper tried it, he said it “didn’t work”. I actually tried to drink out of it myself and found that it was difficult to get much from the cup. After a few minutes of trying it out, I realized the reason we were having trouble is because we were trying to tip our heads too far back, just as you would with a typical toddler cup. The Fluid Toddler Cup is designed with an angled spout requiring less head tipping. Once we figured this out, and showed Cooper what to do differently, he was able to use the cup. He really likes the design because it is very easy to hold, and I love it because I can easily hook it to my “no throw stroller strap” so it never hits the ground when we are out and about.

The Groovy Interlocking Plate and Bowl Set is really cool. This interlocking plate and bowl set includes a toddler-sized plate with two separate compartments plus two small bowls that attach to the edge of the plate in a variety of positions. The small bowls are perfect for dipping—always an engaging activity at mealtime—or for serving small portions.

Cooper loves to dip his chicken nuggets in ketchup, but he does not like it to actually be on the same plate where the ketchup can seep over and touch his vegetables. This plate has totally solved our problem! We just fill one (or both) of the interlocking bowls with ketchup, hook them on the side of the plate and he loves it! He can dip without worrying about ketchup getting on his side dishes! My favorite feature is that the plate has slip-resistant base. No more slippery plates sliding around the table making a mess!


Buy It! You can buy these, plus any other Boon product at http://www.booninc.com/.
