Snack & Play Travel Tray {Review & Giveaway} The Baby Store Plus: meeting a mother's needs

{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, Annette!}

Big Sister E used to be a fantastic traveler. No matter how long she was going to have to sit in the car, she was able to occupy herself well enough that the majority of our road trips went off without a hitch.

Then Little Sister B came along.

Somewhere during the 20 months that the two girls have been riding next to each other, Little Sister B's, shall we say, spiritedness has rubbed off on her older sister. Now our drives are filled with snacks, toys, books, more snacks... pretty much whatever it takes to keep the girls' minds off the fact that they're stuck in their car seats for the duration of the trip.

However, considering they can only hold one or two things in their lap and it is difficult (and unsafe) for me to try to reach back and hand them items, we still end up with complaints and whining for more crackers or that someone has dropped a crayon.

But, wait. Do you hear that? It's the sound of happy silence thanks to The Baby Store Plus and the Snack & Play Travel Tray.

Convenience and durability come together to make the Snack & Play Travel Tray by Star Kids an easy, versatile solution to preventing many of the common issues we had been having while traveling. Made out of 100% nylon and soft foam (easy cleaning!), the Travel Tray features a large, flat tray with a two-inch ledge to keep items on, two side pockets located within the child's reach and an adjustable strap to ensure a perfect fit.

Big Sister E was enamored with the Snack & Play Travel Tray from the moment it was out of the package and wanted to instantly put it to use. Even though we weren't getting in the car just then, she put the strap behind her head and proceeded to wear the Travel Tray around the house like a necklace while she played. And when she and Little Sister B took a break for a snack, there was no question that this tray was there to stand in for the table.

When it came time to try it out in the car, however, I found that using the Snack & Play Travel Tray was almost just as easy. The adjustable strap made it simple to custom fit it right to Big Sister E and to hook and unhook the Tray without any problems. The amount of area it provided for laying out books or papers or snacks was great - I felt like I could have set her up with a four course meal right there on her lap!

The two-inch edging kept anything and everything from rolling or sliding off and the large side pockets provided extra storage for even more. No longer needing to ask for her sippy cup every 10 minutes, Big Sister E was able to move items back and forth to the pockets all on her own... making everyone happy.

The combination of the Snack & Play Travel Tray's flexibility, lightweight materials (easy storage and easy to carry) and the fact that it fits on most all car seats, strollers or on an airplane makes this such a great item to own. Or, for the jet-setting child that you know, what a great gift! The Baby Store Plus even makes gift-giving easy, as this Tray arrived promptly, adorably wrapped and even included a sticker about their good-for-the-earth packaging.

Whether shopping for yourself, baby, a new mom or a mom-to-be, The Baby Store Plus is a one-stop shop for all of the best products out there. Only carrying items that they use and recommend, whether you shop online or at their Cortez, Colorado location, you know that you will receive personalized help and attention by friendly moms and grandmas.

Ugh, I hate having to pick only one thing: how about the stuffed Zoobie lamb and the cutting food toy...I really want the cutting food for my daughter's little kitchen. But I also liked the stroller that folds down to a changing table. Now that is clever!
