Strawlution Review & Giveaway!!

What comes to mind when you hear "Straw-lution"? When I told my husband that I was going to review the "Straw-lution" he said, "A WHAT?!" So I explained that it is basically a half of a straw with "wings"!

I got my straws in blue, since I have two boys! They LOVE them! We buy the little Danonino yogurts, and these straws were PERFECT for them!!

We have only used two of the twelve straws, since they are reuseable AND dishwasher safe! The thickness of the straw is terrific! C likes biting straws, and with these, he couldn't leave teeth marks!

While we have only used our straws at home, I think these will be such a great addition to any picnic or vacation! No more spills!

Some Straw-lution info:

The Straw-lution Straws will come in a package of 12 ($4.99). The Straw-lution Straw is appropriate for ages nine months to 90 years and minimizes the mess associated with eating pre-packaged small cup foods, such as baby food, applesauce, and drinking pre-packaged liquids. The unique length of the Straw-lution Straw (5 inches) is perfectly suited for child-sized cups and for individual containers of yogurt, applesauce, baby food... The shorter length when compared to a typical adult straw makes it easier for children to use. The Straw-lution Straw is the perfect solution for on the go snacks!

They are: BPA free - Made in the USA - Dishwasher safe

They come in from FOUR colors: Blue, Pink, Green or Yellow.

**NOTE** The Straw-lution Straw is not a toy and should be used only with adult supervision. The Straw-lution Straw is intended only for use as a feeding product, and children under 36 months should only be given the straw once it has been inserted into a beverage or food container. To prevent choking hazards, children under 36 months should never be allowed to play with the Straw-lution Straw by itself or to chew on the straw anchor tabs.

  28. Iwould choose blue for all three of my crazy boys and I think we would use it with my oldest son's drinks - if they have ice he doesn't know how to drink without a straw.

  40. I would get blue since I have a boy - and I'd like to see if they work with applesauce. My little boy can eat yogurt pretty well with a spoon, but applesauce spills easier - so these would be perfect!
