Spring is here and most families are eager to get outside after months of indoor time. But every mom knows that heading out with kids means extra toys, snacks and other accessories if the excursion is going to be fun and comfortable for the whole family. I never realized before I had kids just how much “stuff” needs to be toted around on even a quick excursion. So I was thrilled when I heard that Oyaco, a Canadian distributor of innovative, safe and high-quality baby, maternity and children’s products, had recently added a variety of products especially for moms frustrated with trying to tote around their children’s necessities.
I received the new Cups ‘N Cargo stroller organizer and YummiGo booster seat to review. I tried out the stroller organizer first. I appreciated the fact that it had a universal fit so that I could put it on any make or model of stroller. I immediately headed outside to attach the organizer to my Britax B-SCENE stroller. I love this stroller, but its storage space is pretty limited. It has a large bottom basket but no storage up higher. After attaching the Cups ‘N Cargo organizer using the simple adjustable buckle straps, I was ready to head out in style!
The stroller organizer quickly became an essential for me when I ran errands. I used to find it so frustrating to have to either hold my letters for our entire walk or tote along my large purse. Now I always have a place to pop my letters that leaves my hands free! I also loved the bottle-holders in the organizer; having a place for my beverage was one of the only things I really missed about the stroller I had used before switching to the B-SCENE and being able to carry a drink with me again was wonderful!
Next I tested out the YummiGo booster seat. This is quite possibly the most ingenious travel booster I’ve ever seen. By simply attaching the straps around a chair and then buckling your child into the booster, you’ve got a handy and safe booster seat with you at all times with minimal fuss. But the convenience doesn’t stop there! The bottom of the booster actually opens up to store a child’s toys and treasures. And the hard shell of the case meant the contents are protected too. As the icing on the cake, the strap that secures the booster to the chair has an adjuster so that it can be made long enough to use as a shoulder strap for the case!
Benjamin loved his YummiGo and he used it in the house as well as when we were going to a restaurant or visiting a friend. It was actually a great choice for our small kitchen since it took up much less room than a high chair and was easier to pack away after a meal than a regular booster seat. And I absolutely loved how much the hard shell case could hold when we did take it out of the house! I was able to pack my wallet, toys for both boys, some snack packages of cookies or crackers and a drink in the storage section and still have room to spare!
