If you have ever been chucked in the back of the head with a sippy cup while driving (I have)… you will understand why the No-Throw is such a fabulous invention! The No-Throw was designed with a leash style that loops to tether to a car seat, stroller, bike seat, high chair, baby back-pack, stroller… you name it! On the other end it wraps snugly sippy cup or bottle with a velcro closure.
I have a huge problem with my toddlers tossing things (sippy cups, toys, snacks) into the far reaches of my van where it is nearly impossible to reach them unless I squeeze through between their car seat and the front seat and then maybe, just maybe I can reach them.
That is when the No-Throw came into play. Emma & Ethan have a terrible habit of tossing their Munchie Mugs (and sippy cups) down to the back of the van when they are finished with them. So, I tethered Emma & Ethan’s Munchie Mug to their car seats (I looped it through the handle on the mug because the strap was a little short… worked like a charm)… and then it began. Ethan had several minutes where he was insistent that the strap be removed. I held my ground and soon we were driving in silence.
We arrived at the apple orchard an hour later… the Munchie Mugs were still in their laps! *sigh of relief*
I can think of so many times & places these would have been perfect for. We recently went to a fall festival on the town square and Ethan lost his sippy cup four times under the front wheels of the stroller. We have actually lost a sippy cup at Wal-Mart because he tossed it while my attention was elsewhere. Ohhhhhhhh to have had these when my 13 year old was a toddler! He was the head chucker. My windshield and the back of my head took several impacts from sippy cups.
My final say… They are well made and the straps seem to be long enough for the children to not be hindered, but not long enough that the cup/bottle/etc will be dragging on the ground if dropped. They are very affordable and available in a wide variety of patterns… I would say they are a must have! I think they are a “I wish I had this 2 years ago” and a “Why didn’t I think of that?” product!
