Great travel toy!

So a few years ago we decided to move four hours from home with my husbands job. Well the drive wasn't that bad when it was just the two of us or even when my daughter was a baby and slept the entire drive-ah how I miss those days! Now I have to frantically pack snacks and toys in hopes that we make the drive without any major meltdowns. Last weekend we drove to see the grandparents and I had every song violet the dog sings stuck in my head all weekend....that is it time to find a toy that will last more than five seconds and does not make noise or light up to distract every single driver on the interstate. In my search for sanity I came across Claspy Kids. Here is what the designers of the toy have to say about their product "Claspy is a portable, pocket sized, carbon foot print friendly entertainer for your toddler to preschool level child. It’s the ultimate “go to” toy when you’ve traveling by bus, train, plane or car. It’s the perfect “find” in your pocket or bag to keep your child occupied at restaurants or while waiting for an appointment." The toy has different activities for children as young as 18 months and is small enough to travel.

  17. At first I didn't understand how it worked but after seeing it on their site I see how it can really entertain any toddler. My son would love it.

    I love that it can be used from 18 months to over three years old. Great toy for outings...just what I need.
