Yup, that about sums up how I feel about Boon! Boon is an amazing company that sells non-toxic bath, feeding, decor, and organizational products. They are modern, fun, simple, economical, unique, and of course safe.
Safe bath products are extremely important due to plastics leaching into bath water. You wouldn't pour a bottle of chemicals in your baby's bath water, so why would you put toys that release nasty chemicals? The problem with most bath toys is that they are PVC which can contain phthalates and release dioxins. You also have to worry about plastics containing BPA, cadmium, bromine, lead, and arsenic. Boon products are all BPA- free, Phthalate-free, and PVC-free.The one thing I couldn't stand about bath toys was there was no place for them. Leaving them in the bath tub was gross and taking them out and putting them in a container was a pain. Water would always build up and mold/mildew would grow. Then I got the Bug Pod. This is the best answer to bath toy storing! The holes allow proper water drainage. The bug shell detaches and is easy for a child to dump when it's bath time. Plus it's easy to scoop the toys into when it's time for cleanup. And they are really cute! You can get the Bug Pod in red or the Frog in green. The Pods hold tons of toys. We have the Boon Bath Goods set, the Jane Odd Duck, Water Bugs, and some other random foam pieces that fit. Every bath needs a non-toxic duck!! Filling the Pods with non-toxic toys and bath products makes an excellent baby shower or birthday gift.

One of my other all time Boon favorites is the Flo. The Flo is a faucet protector that works like a waterfall. It allows water to spew so your child can lean back and wash his/her hair without getting water in their eyes. It also has a nifty button that releases bubble bath! My daughter hates getting her hair washed. When I finally tried the Flo, I was so mad I hadn't gotten one sooner! This has made hair washing SO much easier! Not to mention it's a more relaxing sound. You also don't have to worry about your child leaning back and hitting their heads on the metal faucet.

Another Boon bath product we love is the Potty Bench. Yes, it does come with a toilet paper roll! This potty mimics an adult potty which entices your child to want to use it even more. It has 2 storage areas for wipes, books, potty training supplies, or butt creams. If you close the lid, the potty then transforms into a step stool! I love that it's a compact potty with tons of awesome features. Especially the shield! Now that my daughter is potty trained, I keep the potty in the car for road trip emergencies. Public restrooms are so ick for kiddos!! This is the perfect back seat solution, especially with the toilet paper holder.

I love that Boon donates 10% of their profits to charities like HOW and Child Crisis Center. They really are a spectacular company that is helpful and beneficial!! :) Boon is about to release a bunch of new Bath, Feeding, and Decor!! So stay tuned for the new goodies!
