Review & Giveaway! Easy Lunchboxes

Review & Giveaway! Easy Lunchboxes

When I first started talking to Kelly Lester about her “Easy Lunchboxes,” she suggested that I use catch-phrases like:

  • “eco-friendly!”
  • “waste-free lunches!”
  • “bento lunch box!”

But I insisted that since this is a father’s website, that, no offense to the charm of her products, dudes like me think in a different way. That’s why I’m proud to announce these features of Easy Lunchboxes:

  • Fits a full pork chop!
  • Strong plastic!
  • Fits a full pork chop!

No matter whether you think like me or Kelly, however, I’ve got to say, these Easy Lunchboxes are big winners. Really. Everyone – man, woman and child – have something to use these things for. And despite some very minor details, these containers are one of the more useful tupperware-type things you can use for a toddler’s food and snacks. Okay, that’s over-stating it a little, but Easy Lunchboxes are awesome. And I love them.

Also – 8BitDad and Kelly Lester also wants to GIVE YOU a set for free! Find out how at the end of the review!

Review: The Gyro Bowl

Review: The Gyro Bowl

Look, let’s not muddle up the main point with facts: the Löopa Gyro Bowl isn’t perfect. Yes, it’s dishwasher-safe. It’s BPA-free. It’s (according to their website) “virtually indestructible.” That means, as far as I know, that you can’t destroy it in virtual reality worlds like Second Life. The Gyro Bowl is a whole lot of great things, I guess. But unfortunately, it also looks like a toy and a challenge for kids. The minute some punk kid (read: your kid) sees that the inner-bowl rotates 360 degrees in every direction, the kid is most-definitely going to try to spill whatever’s in the bowl. Adults, believe it or not, will try to spill whatever’s in the bowl too. Read More

Baby Gear Review: HALO SleepSack Swaddle

Baby Gear Review: HALO SleepSack Swaddle

I think it is justifiable to be suspicious about a baby product when the website advertising lead-in is something to the effect of: did you know that your baby could suddenly DIE IN THEIR SLEEP if not properly swaddled in their cribs?

But if you head over to the HALO SleepSack website right now, that’s exactly what you’ll see. The first banner image you’ll likely see will take you to a video of a friendly pediatrician (and mother) who will tell you all about the 2,500 babies who die every year from SIDS (and the 2,500 additional babies that die suddenly from crib suffocation every year – wait…how is that not the same thing?). Anyway, the takeaway is that this all could have been prevented with the HALO SleepSack Swaddle.

So while this website did make me suspicious, I did not come here to rag on HALO’s fear-mongering advertising staff, nor am I trying to make light of the tragic baby-deaths that happen ever year from SIDS. I’m here to review the HALO SleepSack Swaddle, a product which I was lucky enough to have gifted to me recently…

What can be said about Johnson & Johnson: Johnson’s Bedtime Bath, that hasn’t already been said about a half billion other infant products? Turns out, more or less nothing. Every product sold to you as a parent is proven to and promises to do something.

But better than what?

Turtle Beach Ear Force X11 Headset – A Father’s Must-Have

Maybe you’re a new father, and now that you’ve got a 24-7 responsibility, you’ve kind of made peace with the idea that you just can’t play video games anymore. Maybe you’re a not-recently new father whose family needs to be up early, so your nights usually die at 8:30pm. Either way, you already miss your video games. Why was it that when your wife had her baby, you had to lose yours? Ooh, burn. Just kidding. But the fact is that it has become increasingly harder for you to play your favorite game now that there’s a little one sleeping on the other side of the wall. Evidently, the sounds of war and violence don’t mix well with a sleeping family.

That’s where Turtle Beach’s Ear Force X11 becomes your knight in shining plastic.
