Works For Me Wednesday – The Car Edition

By , April 4, 2007 11:03 am

How ironic that my first “Works For Me Wednesday” would be about the car. If you could see my car there is no way you would consider me an authority on car-organization. However there is one cool little invention that I just discovered with baby number three, that I really feel has changed our travel life. Drumroll please! Allow me to present to you, THE NO-SPILL CHEERIO DISPENSER!!!

Hopefully this is not yet another example of how “oh so behind- the-times” I am. Hopefully you are not all saying to yourselves “Why, that has been around for as long as the sippy cup! What rock is she living under??” But, even if it is as ubiquitous as the sippy cup, it is MY “Works For Me Wednesday” post and the No-Spill Cheerio Dispenser works for me!

For those of you who are equally as behind-the-times as me, it consists of a little cup with a soft plastic lid. The plastic lid has slits in it. Baby pushes her chubby little hand through the slits to get the Cheerios, when hand comes out – slits shut to prevent spillage. A determined baby can still manage to lose a few, however it is usually not as dramatic as the Flying Cheerios Game that can occur with an ordinary cup.

Available at Babies-R-Us: Currently 3 for $10.99. Please visit Shannon at Rocks In My Drier for more great car ideas!

    Great tip! I’m behind the times too I suppose, but I’m not a mommy yet ;) Thanks for the suggestion, I’ll keep it in mind for the future! =)

    What a great invention! I wish I would have had one about 3 weeks ago when my son spilled his Cheerios all over Kohl’s department store!

    Isn’t it great to discover something that works. The one nice thing about parenting is that unless you have ten kids you are always discovering new ways to do it better. Thanks for sharing. My child doesn’t miss a morsel of food. If she drops a corn ball she will note it and then search far and wide before she will leave the car.

    I have one of these and I love it! We put other small snacks in there besides just Cheerios (like goldfish).

    Thanks for sharing!

    Behind the times isn’t a bad thing, you can help update people like me who are further behind. My dd’s carseat at this very moment is full of cheerios! I’m going to get one of these tomorrow! LOL! Thanks for the tip (even if I’m a month and a half late responding!)
