Bryce likes to throw things. That is his new fun game these days. Sometimes it is amusing, but other times it is not. Like when we are out at a restaurant and he tosses his sippy cup halfway across the room. I'm not real amused then, even though he thinks it is hilarious. After the first and second throw, I will wipe his cup off with a sanitizing hand wipe and give it back to him. After the third or fourth time, though, I usually just put it away.
I was so excited when I discovered the No Throw! Now Bryce can toss his cup whenever he wants, because it isn't going to go very far!
The No Throw is a tether that straps around bottles and sippy cups. It can be slipped around high chairs, car seats, strollers, you name it. When your baby or toddler throws their cup, it doesn't go very far, and it certainly won't hit the floor. It is such an awesome product!
I could post a bunch of pictures of Bryce with the No throw, but pictures wouldn't explain this product nearly as well as a video. We first tested it when we went to our favorite breakfast-for-dinner restaurant after school one Friday. Let me show you why we like the No Throw so much...
I am so glad I don't have to deal with constantly cleaning his cup when he throws it now! Unfortunately the strap is not long enough to hook it to his high chair at home, but it works great when we are out and I don't have quick access to a sink and dish soap to wash his cup off. We never leave the house without a No Throw anymore! I also hook it to Bryce's car seat, and his stroller.
The No Throw was developed by twin sisters, Karla and Karen, in 2001. They both were doing a lot of traveling with small children who liked to throw their cups all over the planes and cars. They knew there had to be a solution, and the No Throw was created! The No Throw has been featured in Women's World Magazine, Parenting Magazine and was Published as a 2007 "Top Ten Most Innovative" winner in the StartupNation Home-Based 100!
The No Throw comes in several different colors and patterns. A few of my favorites are Blue With Dinosaurs, Green With Numbers, and Brown With Flowers (for a little girl, of course).
You can purchase the No Throw from the No Throw Online Store for $5 each. You can also order by phone, or find them at most Walgreens locations. Trust me, you will want more than one so that you will always have one with you!
