The important business of mess-resistant toddler snack containers

Today's Cool Tool is about the Munchkin Snack Catcher, a container with a multi-flapped lid. You fill it with whatever your toddlers or sysadmins like to eat, snap the lid on, and hand it to them with the confidence that they aren't going to spill everything on the floor.

It turns out there are other solutions for mess-resistant snacking.

Boon Snack Ball. You don't even have to fill it with a snack. This Kubrik-like container stares down the child until he or she is frightened away.

Gyro Bowl. This is designed to challenge kids to knock the snack out of the gimbaled bowl. A simple shake defeats it!
