My Busy Kit Review & Giveaway (ENDED)

Winning comment is #106!


Does your overactive child need something to keep him/her occupied while you are waiting in doctor's office, restaurants, airplanes or on road trips?


DD received My Busy Kit to review and she just loves it, although I think I might love it more than she does because I feel like it helps to keep me sane when she needs to be entertained.


The little bag actually came with all of these things. I know, hard to believe that so many different activities can fit into one child size bag right?! I love that everything in the bag is something a child would love to play with. If your child wants to play games, there's toys for that. Want to color? There are papers, crayons and markers. There are even crafts for your child to do.

From the content of the kit, I can tell that a lot of thoughts went into putting the kit together. As a mother, I know these are products that kids love.



Next time when you need to keep you child busy, you will wish that you have this kit with you. So, pick one up now and leave it in your car for those outings you are going to have. You can buy the kit from My Busy Kit online store.



Many thanks to Lorraine of My Busy Kit. She has generously offered 1 busy kit as a giveaway prize to one of my lucky readers (US residents only please).

The 2 owners met through a Mother's Club in Redwood City. The idea came from Grandma's clear bag travel ideas when one founder went to Mexico. So COOL!! I so want to win. My girls are such busy bees--that I NEED this in my bag to bide time in restaurants, grocery shopping, travel, etc.

I think this would be a great product to keep my daughter busy so that she won't wake the baby and to keep her from getting bored and I learned
that they help preschoolers by donating to silent auctions and donating a portion of proceeds to the school

I learned the kit is about 8 inches- the size of a lunchbox :) I'd love to win this for my son who is not good at sitting still. Unfortunately when we go to visit grandparents it is 4 hours to one set and 6 hours to the other set of grandparents. That's a long time for a toddler to be in a car! This kit would be so much fun for him!

Do your product contents change?
Yes, specific product contents may change, but the mix (something to color, play, create, & discover) remains the same.
