I saw the gyro bowl commercial:
Ooops! Uh-oh! Watch Out!
Let’s face it kids spill stuff, but now parents can relax whenever kids snack.
I want to relax!
Introducing the gyro bowl. The first ever snack bowl that spins and spins and stuff stays in.
The gyro bowl is 100% totally absolutely kid proof.
100% kid proof is something I could use in every area of my life.
Just fill the gyro bowl and you are ready to go. The magic is in the middle.
The gyro bowl works just like a globe. The gyro bowl‘s inner bowl rotates 360 degrees and magically stays open side up no matter what.
So the gyro bowl keeps all your snacks inside wherever you bounce swing or fly. Now kids can use the amazing gyro bowl as a super snack contraption. Fill it up with raisins or cereal and rev up the action.
Kids love the new gyro bowl because it is fun and it never spills!
NEVER SPILLS? Sign me up!
And so I bought the spill-proof contraption.
And forgot about it for the following 5 weeks it took to be delivered.
Well, not exactly forgot because when I ordered I was required to enter my telephone number. I then received 3 calls times a few days after I made my purchase trying to sell me OTHER things like memberships to buyers programs and gasoline.
What the heck?
I very rudely stopped the calls with a little yelling and some faux-obscenities.
Eventually I received the life changing item. But once again, the as-seen-on-tv purchase ended up to be not just one life changing item, but TWO. I guess it was buy one, get one free and I didn’t even know it. And by free I mean I am sure I was charged an obscene amount of shipping and handling for the second one. I have lived 41 years without one miracle container, but now I need two?
Does the Gyro Bowl Work?
Good question! I was impressed with the quality of the plastic. It is sturdy and moving it all around is extremely addicting…and a bit mesmerizing.
Then I added Cheerios and lost all interest. Within a few seconds there was cereal all over my floor and several of the pieces were stuck in the magical inner workings that rendered the 360 degree rotation useless.
It comes with a lid, but my lid didn’t seem to fit very well and popped off. Rhett(5) accidentally dropped it and the inner part and the inner part rotation device fell out. I was able to easily put it back together and assume this is what would need to be done to clean it.
The commercial shows kids eating out of them in the car. I am not even going to re-enact that unless I am driving directly to the car wash for a detail.
It is a cool looking thing that we will never use.
Anyone want one?
Anyone want some WOW containers?
Anyone want some pajama jeans?
How about a booty pop?
