Have you all seen the infomercials for the gyro bowl? You know, the one where the little kid is toddling down the side of a mountain with a mouthful of food (now that’s a good mama – “here sweetie, put these crackers in your mouth, run really really fast, and since you have a free hand, take these scissors with you while you’re at it…”) and a bowl full of goldfish crackers and not one of those little fishies ends up on the ground….
We were given one of these for Christmas and we’ve tried it out a bunch of times with baby snacks. “Virtually indestructible”? Awesome! “Stays open-side-up, no matter what”? Yes, please! “Saves time, no more cleaning”? Yeah… I waited an entire day for them to come clean this up for me.
Those a-holes never showed.
The gyro bowl is actually a pretty genius concept and I was secretly wanting one the second I saw the commercial. Though knowing what I know now, it will probably work a lot better once she’s a little older and not shoving her entire arm into the bowl to get one Cheerio. Although I think the Cheerios are part of the problem, too because when I put anything small like Cheerios or puffs or anything that my child currently might actually eat in it, the food tends to get stuck between the 2 bowls and then the bowls won’t spin. And then this happens.
“100% kid-proof”? Apparently the makers of the gyro bowl haven’t met my kid. Nice work baby.
