No Throw: Review and Giveaway


It is a proven fact: Babies love to throw things. Babies aren't picky either. If it's not tethered down, chances are it will be flung to high heaven. That's why the folks at Twin Beginnings created "No Throw."


This clever little device secures bottles and sippy cups to strollers, car seats, and high chairs. I've found that it also does a great job of holding on to Teething rings and just about any toy that has an opening large enough to thread the strap through.

I love to go on walks with my son, but he often (whether by accident or on purpose) looses his grip on his sippy cup. If the cup falls on the floor at home I usually do the super quick "wipe-it-off-on-mommy's-shirt" routine. I'm not as crazy about handing my son a cup that has fallen on the street. With the No Throw band the sippy cup never reaches the ground. It simply remains tethered to the side of the stroller.


This principle also works well for the car. Not only is it dangerous, but it's near impossible to grab a fallen cup from the bottom of the backseat floorboard while SAFELY maneuvering a vehicle. Now, if the child gets the urge to fling their cup. They can't send it too far.

I think this is a novel and fantastic idea. The velcro strap adjusts to the exact size of your cup or bottle. They are super easy to attach and remove. I give it two hearty thumbs up!

The kind folks at No Throw have generously offered you a chance to win your own. TWO readers will have a chance to win TWO No Throw bands.

Can't wait to win one? You can also purchase one for yourself at Walgreens, Bed Bath and Beyond or the No Throw Website.
