About (taken from website): BooginHead LLC. is currently located in Issaquah, Washington and continues to provide unique and solution based products that are geared towards simply making parents’ lives easier! Davidson says that “the basis for all the products I create need to fit a certain criteria: is it solving a problem, is it fashionable and does it break the bank? In this economy it is a need vs. a want so creating functional products that meet a need and look more expensive than they are is a great niche.”
Superpower SplatMat: My daughter is just at the age where she is eating and making huge messes. The thing that I hate the most is the mess that gets on the floor. I like her to be in the living room with us while she eats and snacks while I blog, and I’m always worried about getting baby food on my carpet. This splatmat is 52″ round and wipes up very easy with just soap and water. It folds up nice and easy to fit into a diaper bag for easy travel.
PaciPouch: My daughter no longer uses a pacifier, but this adorable little lady bug pouch is great to carry all kinds of little things in it. I actually use it to carry my daughters medicine in when we go out. The pouch itself is washable, inside and out with soapy water. The strap has a snap enclosure to attach to your purse or diaper bag.
Screw Top Squeez ‘Ems: These reusable food pouches are such a blessing in my house. I hate buying pre-made pouches from stores with purees in them for my kids. There is too many horror stories about yuckies in them. I would rather make my own. They are perfect for any age and great for snacks and lunch boxes. Microwavable and freezer safe (remember to save room for expansion). And of course its BPA free!
SippiGrip: I hate when my kids would play the game “pick it up”. And of course bottles, cups and toys would get dirty and I would have to wash them so many times before giving them back to the kids. I reviewed the SippiGrip that I could attach to the high chair and to her sippy cup or bottle and it would keep it from hitting the floor if she knocked it off. The strap is adjustable and works great on high chairs, strollers and even car seats!
Pack ‘Ems: I love to use these Velcro closure packages. They are great for taking snacks on the go and for in lunch boxes. I hate buying and wasting plastic baggies for snacks. They are expensive and wasteful. Hop online and buy a few sets from Booginhead. They are cost efficient, BPA free and easy to fill as they stand on their own. They are also top rack dishwasher safe.

About (taken from website): Yummi Pouch was created by husband and wife team, passionate about serving people and pursing adventures together. Inspired by their daughter, they designed Yummi Pouches to help parents meet their children’s fundamental need of good nutrition while making the feeding process simple, eco-friendly, and cost-effective. Their vision is to provide moms and dads with a simple container to fill with delicious homemade blended snacks.
I am always looking for new reusable products that I can use for just my kids. My oldest son is a wrestler and we like to make sure that he eats light and healthy during the season and I like to “pack” my toddler his lunches a few days at a time to have ready so when he is ready to eat he can grab it and eat. When I saw that Yummi Gear had lunch boxes I knew that they would be perfect for both my boys!
Yummi Gear comes as a 4 pack with 4 colors; blue, green, teal and orange. There is 2 small compartments and 1 large that is perfect for a sandwich. I was able to pack both lunches, my oldest son with a salad, grapes, and strawberries (I had to put the dressing in a different container so that the salad wouldn’t get soggy). My youngest I made a peanut butter sandwich, grapes and apple slices (spritzed with lemon to keep fresh). He loved that he was able to be a big boy and get his own lunch. He acted like his big brother and was “going to school”. The Yummi Gear is microwavable, freezer and dishwasher safe. The lids are easy to take off even by little hands. This being said, liquids are not a good idea to put in the lunch boxes as they will spill out. I am so happy I was able to review these!

About (taken from website): The BOX4BLOX evolved from one of those classic “light bulb” moments, after Moira had spent nearly an hour sorting the kids’ Lego into a selection of plastic containers, only for our youngest to return home from pre-school and tip them all over the floor.
Have you ever stepped on Legos?! May be the WORSE feeling ever. I have 2 boys who are completely obsessed with Legos and have thousands of them all over my house. I try so hard to keep them organized and separated neatly but I have a 4 year old who could care less if the yellow are all together or all of the black ones are in the same box. Most of the time when they are all over my living room, I will end up sweeping up a Lego mini figure head or two.
The Box4blox is a 10 1/4″ cube. The cube works like a coin sorter and sorts all of the teeny tiny Lego pieces from the bigger ones and keeps them seperate and easier to find what you are looking for. The yellow tray holds all of the largest pieces and its goes down to the green tray which will hold all of the tiniest ones. Box4blox is great for sorting and storing Legos, K’nex, Mega Block and more. Load from the top and give it a little shake or stir with your hand and they will fall through the plastic grate on each level to the appropriate color. This bad boy can hold up to approximately 1600 bricks (depending on the size!!). What a great invention for kids of any age to use, my 4 year old learned the first few times we used it. Its a nice size and easy to store. I can’t wait to get another one for my other son! Purchase yours on AMAZON (Affiliate links).
