If there is one thing I have learned since I began reviewing mom and kids stuff, it's that the stuff I think I am going to be least impressed with usually bowls me over and makes me a believer.
Cloth diapers? Baby-wearing with my ergo and baby k-tan? Yeah, none of that would ever have become a regular part of my life until the unassuming packages arrived on my doorstep and made me wonder how in the world I had survived without them.
That's kind of what happened when A.B. Baby Boutique contacted me about reviewing the Wristlet Key Ring Accessory by Kristen Lemoine. The premise is simple: Stop digging in your purse or diaper bag for the keys you swear you just had in your hand and just wear it on your hand to begin with.
It's a great concept, but I really had no idea how I'd heart the wristlet so until I tried it. I have a mondo key-ring with keys for everything, and since I'm all about hauling the world's biggest diaper bag around wherever I go, it was a common occurrence for me to have to stop in my tracks when I got to the mini-van to perform an all-out search for them.
Not only is that not safe, especially at night, it is far from practical with a kid in tow.
Thanks to the wristlet, I have happily slipped my wrist through the loop once I have arrived at my destination and not had to worry about it until it was time to start the engine again. My only concern was that the whole contraption (and by contraption, I mean my fist full of keys) was going to be too heavy. But somehow, magically even, it is far from that and I think you'll heart this, too. And for only $12.00, it's a sweet buy.
May I suggest the Mocca? It's cute and earthy and happens to be the same one I received! Buy one for yourself, and stock up for Christmas! Your girlfriends will love you for it.
