Gotta Love boon!

Even before my son was born, the mountainous pile of stuffed animals began. At first I sort of just shoved them in a bin in the corner of the room. Not only did this look bad, but the problem got worse after he was born. People loved giving him stuffed animals, and while they were cute and made him happy, I ran out of places to put them. I ended up storing them in the Pack'n Play...until now. The animal bag by boon is a genius storage solution. It's not only stylish looking, but I was able to put all of his animals in the bag with room to spare. It's well made and features large, mesh zippered windows so that you can see where every plush "lovey" is hiding. It comes in a variety of styles and colors and is so soft, just like a big stuffed animal itself! Its practicality is two-fold - after you've put all the animals away, the bag becomes a soft seat for your child to sit on.


The myriad of innovative products offered by boon continues with the feeding line. I mentioned before that my one year old still likes to eat pureed fruits and vegetables, so I was intrigued by the Squirt. I've never seen anything like this before. You fill up the bulb with baby food, give it a little squeeze and the food comes out magically onto the spoon, thus eliminating the need for a separate spoon and container. This is also a great way to free up space in the diaper bag when you're out and about.


The ModWare comes in a bright, fun design and the rubber grip makes it easy to hold. My son is still trying to get the hang of holding his own spoon and fork, so this is an ideal choice for him. This set is BPA free and there are no sharp edges anywhere on the fork. This does make it a little more difficult to pick up food, but I no longer worry about poking his mouth like I used to.



The Groovy really is well, groovy. This is an interlocking bowl and plate set that is also BPA free. There are also two separate smaller bowls that you can attach to the edge of the plate anywhere you want. They are perfect for dipping or smaller portions and makes mealtime more fun! The non-slip rubber base is a convenient feature, and this set also matches the Modware perfectly.


WANT TO WIN? One winner will receive a Groovy and a ModWare from the feeding line. To enter, go to the boon website, then leave a comment on this post telling me what product you think is the most innovative. The deadline to enter is Wednesday, July 2 at Midnight. Don't forget to leave me your e-mail address. Winner must provide a U.S. mailing address.

*Update - The winner is #80 The Mama Hood. Congratulations!

  9. The oval storage bag is by far the neatest and the most unusual idea. I'm dying to get a few, but they're beyond our price range.

  10. I was all over their feeding products and intrigued by their potty, too, but I hadn't seen the Animal bags. That's great!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I think we would need the Trio Storage Bag! Like you we have PILES of stuffed animals, and with two kids it is unbelieveable! I've tried hanging racks, and piling them nicely, but the bags would be perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I love the Flaire Elite highchair. It is fun and funky, yet practical and child-friendly. I also love the animal bags. What a fun way to store toys.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  79. The animal bags, definitely. Anything that combines storage and play/fun, is awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  80. The Squirt definitely seems like the most innovative of the Boon products to me. Unfortunately, my daughter was out of the soft baby food phase before I learned about it. I'll definitely get one for our next baby.

  81. I think the layette set looks very handy. My son was a big spitter upper and having a bib that is part of the outfit makes a lot of sense.
