Toddle Along Tuesday - My Must Have Item

A while back I posted pretty regularly about the toys and baby items that we really liked. A few of you have been asking for an update so here is a really quick one (I'll do a post with our top 10, like I used to, sometime in the near future).

This is a little bag of wonder. It's the Take & Toss Variety Bag by the First Years. It contains Sippy Cups, Small Bowls and Large Bowls (with lids), and utensils. All BPA free, and microwave and dishwasher safe - woohoo!

The Sippy Cups are the only ones Carina will take. Fancy Sippies with straws? No thanks. She couldn't care less. She loves these cheap and {semi} disposable ones.

We use the bowls to store her meals and often feed her out of them as well. Sometimes she knocks them out of our hands (yes we have that child) so it's good to have unbreakable serveware.

She also currently enjoys throwing her utensils over the edge of her high chair, so having a pile of these has really come in handy. When one lands on the floor, we just grab another. I usually bring 2 or 3 to the table for each meal. I know, I know, I could just wipe the overboard flatware off and keep going, but I'm a bit of a germaphobe ;)

I love that these are cheap, we can throw them out if we need to, no biggie if we forget them somewhere, and she actually likes them. Win all around.



This week's Toddle Along Tuesday topic is your Must-Have Item! Whether it's for your baby, toddler, or yourself. Feel free to use an old post, and one that is just a "Favorite Things" post is fine. It can be more than 1 item. You get the idea :) There are no rules, except that you link up a relevant post rather than your whole blog. Thanks to Staci from Gatorette and Me for this week's topic!





Next week's topic is your advice for Mommies-to-be! This can be funny, sarcastic, serious, whatever you'd like. Maybe things you wish you had known, or make fun of the bad advice you received? I'm not picky. Have fun with it :)

I love the take and toss stuff! Whenever a new mommy asks me what I recommend putting on a shower registry, those are one of my main items. I still use them with Hannah and she is 3! Perfect for snacks!

Jenny said...

Those look fantastic! I'm going to have to try those. I have yet to find a sippy cup my 9 month old will drink from, hopefully these will be it! Thank you!

Why don't I know about these? This would be great to keep in the car just in case I forget something and we are out and about. I'm off to amazon!

Mama G @ Growing Up Geeky said...

Candice I couldn't find the whole set on Amazon, it might be there somewhere, though!

We love the Take and Toss feeding stuff too! I have never seen it all together in this bag though. I use the bowls to pack the boys lunches and snacks for daycare and they work great.

Karen said...

I finally figured out what mine was hahaha! I had this set too for Tristan. We still use the silverware and sometimes the cups.

Congratulations on the new one! I spotted these and thought of you -- have you seen these Calculus 101 Baby Toms? http://www.toms.com/youth/tiny/red-calculus-101-tiny-toms-classics

We may need to pick some of these up. I'm getting tired of our little glass bowls, especially since she is starting to reach for them. Plastic would be better. :)
