Boon makes an adorable little snack container called the Boon Snack Ball which I recently purchased now that my son is old enough to eat Cheerios and Gerber Puffs. The Boon Snack Ball is a complete sphere with a small, circular lid at the top that slides to the side to open. The Boon also unscrews into 2 pieces for adding snacks. This snack ball is for babies 9 months and up. It retails for just under $7.
I’ll admit it: I purchased this snack ball based completely off of it’s looks. It’s the cutest snack container I’ve ever seen! The design and colors are very modern and unique. I purchased the orange and blue model (I’m a little partial to these colors…just look at my logo!) I love having a hard-sided container to carry his snacks in. I had been using Ziploc bags for his snacks, but of course they get crushed easily when in his diaper bag. The Boon is also fairly compact in size, which is perfect for throwing in the diaper bag or a purse without taking up a lot of space. It also easily fits into the cup holder on the stroller, and is easy for little hands to hold. I would estimate that this snack holder can hold about 1/2 cup of snacks. Not huge, but perfect for little day trips where you don’t need a lot on hand. I also like that the lid is attached so it won’t get lost. You can also rest assured knowing that this snack holder is safe for baby, being that Boon products are completely free of BPA and phthalates. It is also dishwasher safe.
There are a few things that could be improved on the Boon Snack Ball. First of all, the price of roughly $7 may seem a high for the size. Also, the size may be a little small for people with toddlers who are needing something that holds more. However, I’ve found it to be the perfect size for baby. It would be great if Boon offered a few different sizes.
Here is a quick breakdown of the pros and cons:
Pros: Cute design and colors, hard-sided, attached lid that slides, easy to add snacks, nice size for small hands and compact use, BPA free, dishwasher safe
Cons: Price, may be too small for some uses
Overall, I would say I am into the Boon Snack Ball. It’s cute and it’s very functional, especially when space is an issue.
