Friday, September 19
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!
