{Boon} Review & GIVEAWAY! *CLOSED*


I know I've mentioned Boon products before, as I find them to be clever, modern and, well, fun! But if you're still unfamiliar with Boon Inc., I'd like to take a minute to introduce you to them. Boon Inc. is a company that manufactures toys, bath goods, organizational pieces, potty training seats and more! And they do so in a fun style - as their own slogan declares, they offer "innovations for modern parents" (TM).

All their products are BpA-free, pthalate-free and PVC-free, so you can be assured their products are safe for your children to use. Plus, 10% of all their profits are donated to children's charities. It's always nice knowing that not only are you getting a fab product, but that by doing so, you'll helping out others, too!

And just where did the name come from? Glad you asked! A "boon" is defined as "a benefit bestowed, especially one bestowed in response to a request.” Brilliantly clever and all too spot-on. I mean, that is, afterall, what every parent is looking for when it comes to finding products for their children!

So recently we had the chance to test out a couple of Boon's line of products. We were sent the flo and their scrubbles. Of course, from those names, you probably have no idea what products we're referring to...such cute names...just part of the Boon creativity, I guess.

The flo (MSRP $14.99) is a device you use in your bathtub. You put it over your faucet, and it not only protects your kids' noggins from bumping into the hard faucet fixture, but it also creates a gentle waterfall and can dispense bubble bath for extra fun! My son now loves to rinse the shampoo out of his hair by placing his head under the waterfall - less work for me, and more fun for him! And being in his do-it-all-myself mode that he's currently in, he also has thoroughly enjoyed putting bubble bath into the bubble bath dispenser and pushing the button to release it into the water. All for fun bath-time goodness!

My only issue with it was that I had to toggle it around a bit on our faucet to get the water to flow out smoothly. But once in the right place, it worked great! It does have a multitude of different settings to make sure it fits each faucet just right.

Next we checked out their scrubble set (MSRP $9.99 for set of 3), their "interchangeable bath toy scrub set." These are not only water squirters but also scrubbers. So kids can practice scrubbing themselves, scrubbing the tub, or whatever it is they want to scrub! Like other bath squirters, you just squeeze and release under water to fill up. However, we found that you hardly got any water in them that way and that it was easier to unscrew the tops to fill (fully) with water. This makes for some good fine motor skill practice! So not only can you unscrew the tops to fill with water (or to clean the product), but you can also interchange the tops with one another...just a clever little way to have even more fun in the tub.

So all in all, we're having a lot of fun with these festive little Boon products! I love that they can be used from ages 0 and up {heck, even I enjoy using them!} and that they're both multi-functional. We all like more bang for the buck, right? And speaking of bucks, they're both very affordable at just $14.99 for the flo and $9.99 for the scrubble set.

BUY IT! Visit Boon Inc. to purchase your own scrubble set and flo or any other number of fabulous children's products! Be sure to check out their Frog Pod {the product that started it all} for easy bath toy storage or their simply fabulous pedestal high chairs!
