The Giddy Bowl is a sturdy plastic bowl (we had it in the blue/green colour-way) with handles, snap on lid and if you remove the bowl it's even a handy strainer/colander. Great for snacking on the go, or transporting food when you're on the move, this is a product designed for children (or clumsy adults - like me!) With the addition of the colander, it's a neat bit of travel kit for toddlers.
My older children put it through its paces and tried to see how vigorously they could spin, twist and whirl it before it spilled any of the contents, and I was surprised to see that it took them a considerable amount of time and effort to achieve this! In reality, this would hopefully mean that accidental spills would be less likely (always a good thing).
A chance conversation with a friend provided me with another tester for the bowl. My friends son has been diagnosed with a condition called ataxia. You can find out more about it here. Ataxia is a collection of neurological disorders which can affect balance, coordination and speech. My friend had read about the Giddy Bowl in an Ataxia newsletter, as it is a product which could be of use to those affected. I dropped round our bowl to see how they got on with it. As a bowl for a baby or toddler, it's just the right size, but for a school boy (my friend's son is 5yrs old) it's a bit small for everyday use. However, I think it's a great idea for car journeys/travel. Apparently her son was adept at taking it apart!
Another plus point for me is the handle around the edge. Apart from the obvious ease with which a small child can grasp and hold the bowl, the design of the handle mean that the bowl can be attached to a stroller, for example, so it won't get lost. As my son managed to lose yet another beaker today, this appeals to me!
The fact that it comes apart means it's easy to clean, and it's also dishwasher safe.
