Did you know that there are just over 2 weeks left until the Hugest giveaway event of the season?!!  We are so excited for our line up of sponsors for this event, and will have 2 great prize packages up for the winning!

Our first sponsor is Gyro Bowl

You guys have all seen these funny bowls, right?  They look kind of like a flying saucer, in fact, Big Brother calls them his space ship bowls.

I am terrible about letting my kids carry around their snack bowls, and Little Brother is terrible about spilling his food all over the place.  It is an accepted fact at our house that we have many spilled bowls of snacks every day.  This is a big problem in our new house where we have hordes of ants that come marching should the smallest speck of a crumb be dropped on the floor.

I saw Gyro Bowls on a TV commercial this summer while I was visiting my mom and thought they’d be perfect for my little stinker.  I was very excited when, earlier this month I was contacted by the company and asked if I would be interested in reviewing the Gyro Bowl.  I have heard mixed reviews on the Gyro Bowl so I was very interested in trying them out.

Here are some facts about the Gyro Bowl:

• Kid-Proof Gyro Bowl
• Inner Bowl Rotates 360 Degrees
• Virtually Indestructible
• Saves Time, No More Cleaning
• Use it for Non-Food Items
• BPA-Free Plastic
• Top Rack Dishwasher Safe
• Not Microwave Safe

Here is my take:

We love the Gyro Bowl!  We found it to be very effective when used as it was intended to be used. I found the base of the bowl to be a little narrow so sometimes the bowl tips, but that hasn’t been a problem because the bowl is designed not to spill when tipped.  If shaken hard or dropped on the floor the contents of the bowl will spill.

The outer ring around the bowl prevents the bowl from tipping all the way over when on a surface.

Little Bro is using a toy as a spoon. This would have caused major spillage in other bowls.

Here is a short list of some of the “No, No uses” and the “Good Job uses”.

No, No Uses

Do not have your child try to eat anything out of this bowl with a spoon.  That is a no no, and will frustrate the child every time you try.  If eating cereal, you’ll end up with milk all over the table.

Do not “test” the Gyro Bowl on the trampoline. 🙂 We did not do this, but I read some reviews of people who did.  Come on people!  Your 1-4 year old is really going to be eating his fruit loops while jumping on the tramp?  I don’t think so.  The Gyro Bowl protects against tipping spills, but has no control over the food in the bowl when a child-generated loss of gravity occurs.

Good Job Uses

Pour a little snack in and send the little children off to enjoy.

Instruct the older children that, though it looks like something to be tinkered with, it will do its job best when simply left alone.

The bottom line

Though this is no miracle bowl, when used correctly, it will greatly reduce the number of snack spills.  Besides that it is fun and looks really cool.

You can purchase the GYRO BOWL Spill Resistant Kids Gyroscopic Bowl with Lid for under $10.

  1. This sounds like something I need. I have a toddler who likes to snack in the living room and get crumbs everywhere. Thanks for sharing!
  2. I was wondering how these bowls actually worked. I would have thought it would have made eating cereal with milk easier though. Looks like it works great with snacks though!
  3. Great review! I keep seeing these ads on TV. I had to laugh at the idea of someone eating snacks on a trampoline! LOL!
  4. I've seen these on TV and wondered! My daughter could use this for her snacky puffs.
  5. what a cool space agish concept! Neat!
