Boon: A Review and Giveaway!

boon n. A benefit bestowed, especially one bestowed in response to a request.

I was so excited when I received the opportunity to review the Boon products. I really like the modern style of these products. My kids have a lot of fun with the bath toys. They are foam toys, and chewable (for little ones). I really like that the balls have no holes in them. This helps greatly with keeping the mold out. There are 3 balls, 2 bath scrubbers, and many colorful shapes. My oldest son likes to make "pictures" with the shapes on the wall of the tub.




Madelyn just likes to chew on the shapes, and they probably feel great on her little gums. She is getting into throwing the balls, too, and she thinks that is funny.
As you can see in the picture, we have a Flo, too, and I love it! It has a soft, rubbery material so it helps prevent injury. Maddie loves to hit her head against it. I don't have to freak out, because it is soft on her little head. The Flo has an Easy-fill bubble bath reservoir, a one-touch bubble bath dispenser, and attaches easily and grips firmly to most bathtub faucets. I like that I can still turn on the shower head with the Flo attached. I really like this product because it makes rinsing the kids hair easier. I think Maddie really likes how it feels more like a shower. It creates a nice flow of water.

I like how you can fill the bubble bath dispenser before you turn the water on, then the kids can "help" put the bubbles in without making a mess. This is a super product for bath time, and I place it high on the list of "must-have" for homes with kids!

Our family likes to go places and it can be a challenge with everything we have to bring for the kids. I love that Boon has a super product line for feeding. The Squirt baby food dispensing spoon makes feeding on the go so convenient!

Here is what it does: allows for convenient feeding, one bite at a time. The easy-to-fill bulb holds up to 3 ounces of baby food and attaches firmly to the spoon end. Simply squeeze the bulb to dispense just the right amount of food. Squirt comes with a protective cover to seal food in and keep the spoon clean between feedings. By combining the spoon and food container into one product, Squirt makes one-handed feeding a snap.
The only thing I would do to make this product different, would be to make the spoon part a little smaller, and made of rubber. I think making these two changes would make the product more "baby friendly". Other than that, I completely love this product! It was a big hit at our family Christmas get together. My nieces (who are teenagers) wanted one. I would highly recommend this product for all parents of babies.

Another great feeding product that Boon has is a Groovy – Interlocking Plate and Bowl Set.

This is a great plate/bowl set for any toddler. I like how there are separate bowls to put the "dips." Every kid likes to dip everything...and this helps keep things a bit neater. Here are some facts: Groovy offers a fun way to serve meals in a customizable configuration. 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. The feeding line is made with non-toxic materials, so they are safe, too!

They really do have just the cutest stuff. I'm going to have to remember this site. My daughter liked the bracelets, but I really liked the pink, oval Animal Bag. What a great solution for all those stuffed animals!

Oh, and my e-mail address is the.clan@hotmail.com

I love the frog pod!

Naomi said...

We love Boon! We have a Potty Bench, Frog Pod, Flo, bath toys and Animal Bag and all are superb. Especially the potty, what a lifesaver that has been...

I would love to try the high chairs and feeding items with my five month old. His big sister is slightly too old for them at 3 1/2.

Stephanie said...

We're getting ready to potty train within the next year so I like the potty bench.

I'm not entering, but I wanted to add that Boon uses the safe plastic that doesn't leech into our children's foods. Boon doesn't advertise it much, but it is on the Soft Landing blog.
And I love my Boon products!

This would be a wonderful plate set for my niece. She loves the zoopal plates for the dip areas. I hate buying them though.

The animal bags are a great idea! But, I'm going to say my fave is the frog pod - genius. I bet it doesn't mold (yuck) like the fabric bath bag we had.

Oopsies about the last post. :)
But we're been eyeing the Flo for a while now - just waiting for a good sale. :)

aBookworm said...

Oh, FLO, without a doubt is my fave. The number of times Kiddo has narrowly avoided hitting himself on the faucet makes me CRAVE this. It's truly a boon :)

I so wish this were the prize, but barring that, do count me in for the current prize!

Such a great giveaway deserves a shout-out! As soon as I'm done commenting here, I'm going to go blog about this on my contest blog : A Bookworm's Diary

Thanks and have a great New Year!

I love the Otto Animal Bag. I could have used this as a child, but my mom bought me a horrid "pet net" which kept my precious animals high out of my reach. We'll have to get Suzi one of these when she turns two.
