Nûby On-The-Go Set Review

We  have such busy weekends, either its a birthday party or we are visiting friends and family. We try to make the most if its sunny, by going out to a park or zoo. With such on the go life, the only problem I face is to make sure my daughter eats without making a huge mess. Nuby takes that into consideration, and has designed feeding items specially designed for on the go needs. As a Nuby Mommy Blogger I got the chance to review Nûby On-The-Go Set.
    Each set contains 2 cups (9oz / 270ml) with dual-flo valves, 1 suction bowl with feeding spoon and 1 snack keeper for you active kiddo.

Nûby On-The-Go Set

  Each piece is incorporates features to help prevent spills and reduce the mess of feeding. And because they are from Nûby, you know they are durable, easy to use and 100% BPA Free.

My daughter carries these four feeding items all over the house without leaving any mess. The Easy Go Suction Bowl and Spoon is perfect for  travel, or any on-the-go occasion. features a suctioned base that keeps the bowl firmly in place during feeding. It also features a lid that seals tightly to keep food fresh during storage. The spoon makes a perfect travel companion because it snaps onto the lid of the bowl for easy storage. Its dishwasher/microwave safe.
    The matching cups are adorable. Dispensing a variety of liquids, the No-Spill cup and cap features a unique dual-flo valve system that is engineered to help protect against spills or leaks. Parent simply chooses the fast or slow flow setting as filling child's cup. Liquids pass through only when child sips. I fill one with water and other with juice for our trips.
    The unique  Snack Keeper cup keeps kid-sized snacks inside the container instead of on the floor or car seat. The soft flaps make it easy to grab snacks without spilling. The container holds 9 oz. of dry snacks and the protective bottom keeps tabletops scratch-free.
  You can buy this set for your kid or as a gift at one of these retailers:

Nuby's Fish Swoosh Bath Toy Review

Nuby's Fish Swoosh Bath Toy

My daughter loves playing with bath toys. It’s the only thing that makes her sit stable while taking bath :) So when I got the chance to review Nuby's Fish Swoosh Bath Toy, I was really excited :) 
       I have heard from a lot of moms that their kids run and hide when it’s time to take a bath. Nuby understands this and that is why they have so many fun bath toys which can turn your kid's bath time into something they look forward to.
    Nuby’s Fish Swoosh is another fun and interactive bath time toy from Nuby. Fish Swoosh will help develop and improve your child’s motor skills as well as hand eye coordination.

It’s a dual fun toy. The net of the toy can be left open or closed. I love how at the end of bath time. I can just leave all the fish toys inside close net to dry. Your child can also squeeze and squirt the fish between dunks in the goal. My daughter loves to play with this round ball like fishes. The super sturdy suction cups keep the goal adhered to the bathtub wall for endless bath time fun. Fish Swoosh is sure to be a bath time favorite. This product is BPA Free and recommended for 18+ month old.
