It’s hard to get a handle on drink boxes. One squeeze too many and mom’s cleaning up a tidal wave of apple juice.
Keep the mess to a minimum with Innobaby’s new Keepaa drink holder. The expandable sleeve gives sippers a handle to grip everything from milk boxes to yogurt smoothies.
We tested ours on a newly independent drinker and rather than cursing the day Capri Sun created the pouch, we enjoyed a stress-free, spill-free beverage break. The sleeve also collapses flat, which makes for easy transport to play spaces and birthday parties (a.k.a. messy drink territory).
Like all of Innobaby’s products, the Keepaa is free of BPA, phthalates, PVC, and lead, so it’s as safe as it is useful.
We’ll drink to that.
