Boon Inc. Review and Giveaway

I'm sure we have all seen products made by Boon by now - they are those brightly colored, unique-looking products that always seem to have a useful purpose!  When I was registering for baby showers when I was pregnant with Sydney, I remember seeing the Flo water deflector/spout cover and thinking it looked like a very neat product (more useful than the huge duck spout covers).  We got it, and still use it!  I love it - since it is a water deflector, it keeps the water in a soft flow - not as loud as a normal faucet.  Plus, it doesn't look like a kids spout cover, which is a plus in my book!  When I was offered another Boon item for review and giveaway, I was excited!  I knew it would be perfect for the month of March and our Virtual Baby Shower! 

A Little About Boon
"It's funny how such a simple thing can lead to so much. It all began with a messy toddler bathtub. Designer Rebecca Finell's wheels started turning and the Frog Pod was born.  But the problem solving didn't stop there. She had lots of ideas for other parenting innovations so she sought out a partner, Ryan Fernandez—who could create a successful business—and together they founded Boon Inc. Today Boon offers a wide range of products that help parents all over the world.  We're committed to creating nothing but the most innovative gear—and keeping it affordable. Our design studio is always in motion, tackling one parenting challenge after another. And don't forget our commitment to quality and safety" (from Boon, Inc.'s website HERE). 

Here are some of Boon, Inc.'s products that I think are awesome!  The first is their "animal bag" which stores stuffed animals by making them into a chair for your kids!  Sydney has several stuffed animals that she doesn't play with constantly and I can't wait to get one of these bags for them!  Next, is the bug pod for the bath tub.  These are great because they can easily scoop up toys in the tub, and then they hang and allow the toys to dry.  Next, I think their potty chair is neat!  No "bells and whistles" on this potty, but it does have a place for toilet paper so that your child can reach it easily.  Sydney doesn't like noisy potty chairs (personally neither do I), so this one is right up our alley!

My Review
I was able to review the Fluid sippy cup by Boon, Inc.  This sippy cup was created so that kids could hold onto it easily (and any way they want).  It is spill-resistant, but not spill-proof.  If held upside down, it will drip.  That means that your child can actually drink out of it.  Any spill-proof cups we've tried were pretty dificult to drink from, so I'm glad this one is only spill-resistant (just wanted to make that clear).  It also has an angled spout so that your child doesn't have to tilt their head back as far to drink from it.  It's dishwasher safe and only 2 pieces.  It is super easy to clean and put together.  Sydney LOVES this cup.  She prefers to wear it as a bracelet while she drinks from it.  It seems to be very easy for her to drink from and hold.  I'm sure this cup would work well for younger kids as well.  My only issue is that it doesn't fit into the cup holders on most of our diaper bags, but since it has kind of an odd shape, it stays sitting upright inside the diaper bag without any spilling issues.
