Havin' a ball



Buttercup is in love with anything round that resembles a ball, so she just about flipped when she saw my open up the new boon snack ball we just received. It's white and cute and oh-so-brite that I have no fears of losing it in the bottom of the diaper bag, so that makes me happy, too.

It's slightly smaller than I expected, but is big enough to hold a nice size serving of dried cereal for travel (a much better option than finding nothing but crumbs in the bottom of the diaper bag because you used a sandwich bag, I can tell you from experience!)

Since Buttercup is all about bite-sized snacks on the go, I pretty much rely on the snack trap she loves to lug around, with the boon snack ball playing the all important role of Carrier of The Next Snack. And when it's time to fill 'er back up again, I simply pop open the snack ball and pour Buttercup's little snacks into her cup before putting the snack ball away for safekeeping.

Notice I said "put away." I didn't say that I hand it to Buttercup to use as her actual snack container, nor do I allow her to play with it. Sure, it's only $6.49, but I'd like to it last! Besides that, the opening is just big enough for her to get her hand in and out right now and she is only 15 mths old...and since she is not old enough to understand the concept of "pouring" to avoid a stuck-hand, I'm just playing it safe and keeping it with me.

I do, however, like that it's BPA-free, pthlatelete-free, and PVC-free (all the major no-no's!) and that it's round shape allows for easy blind grabs out of the diaper bag or purse.

Of course, Buttercup loves that her cereal doesn't get smashed up by anything other than her little chompers!

And yes, you know the drill! More often than not, my posts end up announcing the chance for you to win more free stuff! So, if you want in on the chance at your own boon snack ball, you need to visit the boon site and leave me a berrie (read: comment) telling me which combination of three items you'd think would be worthy of a contest prize celebrating upcoming my 100th post. I'll tally the votes and then send off an email to boon, and the top choices will be offered as a combo prize for my 100th post!


Extra entries are also available if you:
* subscribe to my RSS feed and comment letting me know you did so.
* Blog about the contest and link to the giveaway.
* Non-bloggers can email three of their friends about the contest and CC me on the email. Girl Scout's honor that I will never bother these sweet people. I promise!
* Grab my button and place it on your sidebar, linking to Berrie Sweet Picks. (I'll check!)
* Follow me on Twitter! (nickname: berriesweetest)
Please note all entries MUST include a valid email address to be considered for the drawing! That means that well, all entries must include an email address to be considered valid. Simple enough, right? ;)

I'll pick one name at midnight (EST) on Sept. 26 and post their name to PRIZEYWinners and on my sidebar. The winner has four days from the announcement date to contact me, or an alternate winner will be selected.

3 items?? hmm the high chair and the potty bench and the another highchair(i have twins-so id need 2lol)! Okay thats going overboard...

I think the three items you pick should be under the same theme, liek bath time ... id love to see the LadyBug Pod ( i want one so bad) The Flo dispenser and bath goods! Or Feeding time: A groovy plate, A fluid Cup,and the ModWare

Either way i am excited for the giveaway! I still have to track down a store that sells the ladybug pod and the snack balls and the fluid cups- those are just a few items i am dying to have. They are so modern and fresh looking from the styles to the simple colors they use!

Yasmine said...

I sent them an emails..i think i accidently sent it twice too oops!

To Whom It May Concern:

I just wanted to let you know what i think should be offered for Berrie Sweet Picks 100th Blog Post. I enjoy reading her blog-. I love that the reviews on all different products come from a moms point of view!
Well, here goes...
I think the Bug Pod, and The Flo, and the Bath goods would be a good prizes, because we all know bathtime can be hectic with little ones, and i think many Moms would love the opportunity to win these items!
A Feeding Time theme would be awesome as well! I think the Groovy, the Fluid Toddler Cup, and the ModWare toddler utensils would be another great set of prizes. Toddlers start becoming more and more independent, so why not let them try eating on their own?
All the products seem awesome, The designs are so practical(esp the catch Bowl and squirt) and would make any mom happy!

Yasmine said...

I have subscribed to you via gogle reader, and already had you on my blog reader-is taht the same as RSS feed??

I love Boon stuff, and I think a mealtime set would be great, the Groovy plate, Fluid sippy cup, Catch blowl, Squirt spoon, and some utensils. Maybe they could even throw in the high chair! :)

The theme ideas the people have listed are all wonderful ideas. I love the Boon products. I would probably choose the bathtime products. I love the Frog Pod(think little boy), The Flo Dispenser and Bath Goods.

Sandy said...

LadyBug Pod, the potty chair and the high chair...I love this site !

if you need to get those old crumbs up out of the diaper bag try putting the bag down so the dog can smell it- we accidentally left ours open on the floor and found the dog digging for crumbs like she is never fed

I just wanted to say how much I love the Mixed Chicks leave-in conditioner you gave me a few weeks ago! Love, love, love it!!! It really helps define my curls, instead of having a frizzy mess.

You also included a few samples of deep conditioner, which is pretty great, too.

Thanks for having such awesome giveaways!

Nicole Feliciano said...

I have this snack ball and love it. In fact I'd love a backup. Boon rocks and they make so many great products. I'd pick the bug pod and the flo faucet cover. It's not necessarily the most expensive items that should be touted. Congrats on your anniversary!

And if you can stop by http://momtrends.blogspot.com/2008/09/lollitops-contest.html

I've got three fashion-themed contests running until 9/30.
