A mummy Amy Review
How many times have you just started out on a long and tedious journey only to hear a shout from the back “Are we nearly there yet mummy?” the dread sets in and you know you’re in for a rough ride don’t you?
At nearly four Big Boo gets bored really easily during even the shortest car journey and her constant shouts of boredom is bad enough when both daddy and I are there but it’s even worse when I’m on my own as short of stopping the car every two minutes there is very little I can do to entertain her. It doesn’t seem to matter what I pack to keep her entertained for the journey it always ends up falling the floor to shouts of “Get it please” causing me to have to pull over and retrieve the awol toy.
Content and Calm recently sent the little lady one of their fabulous TrayKit’s to review and I must say that when the star covered pink traykit arrived she was once excited little monster.
So what is a TrayKit?
A TrayKit is a square backpack that can be opened out to reveal a whole host of different sized pockets which are perfect for storing all of those essentials that little monsters require during car, train or even plane journey. Simply secure the items within the pockets then close the traykit and zip it up and you have a completely portable entertainment centre. Open out the tray and attach it to the back of the seat and voila one fabulous play station is formed and thanks to its design and high sides the traykit retains the treasures insides without them rolling off the tray and all over the floor.
Lexi loves to draw so I wasn’t at all surprised to turn around to see her stashing her favourite colours into the designated slots and she even made me smile by cramming in her vast collection of hair bobbles as she had discovered the built in mirror and apparently “mirrors are for doing my hair in mummy” (I’ve taught the little lady well)
Now the TrayKit has a great feature that all parent’s will love- its wipe clean!!! Whilst this might not sound thrilling as a mummy I know how much mess can be made by sticky sweets and juice so personally I think that this is a fab feature that definitely deserves a mention.
Boo soon became inquisitive as to what the Velcro straps did so we popped out to the car so I could show her how the TrayKit cleverly attached to the back of daddy’s seat thus creating a platform for her to play upon when she was sat in her own car seat. With this the little monster insisted that we went out for a drive so she could play properly and her wish was my command!
It’s fair to say that lexi really likes her pretty TrayKit and it has quickly become a permanent fixture in our car especially when we make long journeys to visit family across the country. Whilst at 3 ½ Boo does find it a little tricky to set up the TrayKit by herself but to be honest for the extended peace and quiet that they TrayKit affords I’m more than happy to do it for her.
I am mightily impressed with Lexi’s new travel companion and can’t wait to use it on the plane during our next holiday abroad. The TrayKit is a very simple idea which has become this mummy’s saviour for carrying all of the equipment needed to keep my little girl happy en route.
TrayKits are currently priced at £24.99 and can be purchase from the Content & Calm website.
