Review and giveaway (closed): Simply On Board


Congrats to my winner: jakiesmom
 
As I've discussed many times before here on the blog, my family is an urban family. We live right on the edge of downtown Seattle, just a few blocks from Seattle's iconic Space Needle.  We love our neighborhood- everything we need is within a few blocks. This means that we do a lot of walking- the kids and I run 99% of our errands on foot/in the stroller. Since the kids spend so much time in the stroller, they need a few toys on hand to keep them occupied during all their sitting.  Fortunately, I have a trick for keeping their things close by- Simply On Board straps! Here's a bit about Simply On Board, from a press release that I received:
Toddlers beware; toy tossing has come to a stylish end!  Parents finally have a simple solution for keeping favourite toys, teethers, etc… in the stroller, car seat  and carrier, and off the ground - the Simply on Board toy straps.

How do they work? 


Simply affix one Velcro end to a:
·         Stroller
·         Car seat
·         Shopping cart
·         High Chair
·         Carrier, etc….
And the other adjustable end to favorites like:
·         Sophie the Giraffe and other teethers
·         Rattles
·         Snack traps
·         Plush toys
·         And so much more….


Simply on Board is available in packs of two with four colour options: black, green, blue and pink. One solid and one polka dotted strap because there is no need to compromise style for sensibility.  Price $8.99 for a 2 pack
Here are my kids- ready to go for a walk in their stroller, with some little toys attached to their Simply On Board straps.
And here's Vivian in her single stroller, with the Simply On Board strap keeping her sippy cup safe and secure and off the ground!


These straps are such a brilliant but simple idea. They look nice on the stroller, they keep toys and other items clean, and they're simple to use! You can pick up these straps on Amazon. And, if you have a cute child- enter the Simply On Board contest- they're looking for a cute child to feature on their toy strap packaging! Details of the contest can be found here.

And I have good news! One of you will win a pair of these straps for yourself!  Open to US and Canadian mailing addresses only, please.

My son just turned one and has so much fun throwing his toys and drinks off the side of his stroller. This would be perfect!

I don't have kids small enough to need a stroller, but I do use a wheelchair. It is a constant struggle to find products that allow ME to carry things! These might be just what I need! :)
