If you follow A Frog in My Soup on Twitter, you might remember that last month I was tweeting live from the Big City Moms Biggest Baby Shower in Manhattan. I am so lucky to get to attend quite a few new and expectant parent events as part of my work with Ella’s Kitchen. These events are always filled with representatives from the newest, best, and most innovative companies in the world of baby products, and I love getting to check it all out!
One company that I recently discovered is Innobaby. As their name suggests, they have taken storage to a whole new level of innovation. We all know that when you have kids you begin to collect all kinds of storage containers. Ones for baby formula, toddler snacks, hair clips and toy pieces. Our once organized kitchen cabinets become a mess of bulky juice box holders and large, unstackable food containers. Innobaby has created feeding systems and storage systems that are just smart. I could go on and on about their products but it’s probably best for you to just check out their site and for me to tell you my two favorites at the moment.
The Packin’ Smart Bento Box (above). Bento boxes are very “in” right now so you can find many variations, but this one is by far my favorite. It is thin and tall, which makes it perfect for stacking in a lunch box. It comes in great colors, is bpa, phthalate, pvc, and lead FREE, and you can throw it right in the dishwasher. My son thinks the compartments are super cool and he loves that I can give him a variety of snacks and treats in his lunch. When he isn’t in school, we use it for snacks on the go, and for treats at home – the divided compartments make it great for bananas and pb or pretzels and Nutella. 🙂
I am also really loving the Packin’ Smart Original 5 Tier. The number of different ways that you can use this tiered storage device is amazing. It comes with 5 seperate containers that can be used alone or in any number of stacked combinations. Even when you have all 5 tiers in use, you can access any one of the sections by simply pressing on the sides of the container. We have used this product for snacks, for hair ties and accessories, for craft supplies like beads, rhinestones, and stickers, and I even used it for our toiletries when we went away for the weekend. The lids are interchangeable, and there is a convenient base to keep your stack standing. Plus, there are a ton of cute designs, and like the bento, it is dishwasher safe and free of bpa, phthalates, pvc, and lead.
It has been so wonderful discovering all of the smart products that Innobaby has to offer, and I couldn’t wait to tell you all about it! Check out their site and let us know which product is your favorite! Or better yet, head over to the Innobaby Facebook page and tell them! I know they would love to hear from you!
Oh, and if you have a toddler who loves juice boxes, but tends to squeeze them all over the place, you might be in the market for one of these adorable holders. Not only will it keep your tot and home juice free, but it also folds flat for easy storage. Trust me, your cabinets will thank you!
Stay tuned – my goal is to highlight a few of my favorite products from all of the events I’ve been attending over the past few weeks. If you are looking for a baby or toddler product, and aren’t quite sure where to look, feel free to ask! We have seen so many amazing new inventions for little ones and we’d be happy to try and help! 🙂
