Boon Inc. Flō Review & {GIVEAWAY!!}

I had the opportunity to review Flō by Boon. First off, Boon's tag line is "innovations for modern parents." All their products do have a modern feel. The "modern" movement is based on simple lines and function. Boon products do have simple, clean lines that are nice to look at and their products serve a function (usually several functions within one product). Boon gives 10% of each of their products profits are donated to children's charities. Boon is a company with a conscience.

Flō is a water deflector and protective faucet cover with a bubble bath dispenser. Basically it's something that you cover your tub facet with so your babes and children don't knock themselves out when they hit it. Which we all bump into the faucet sooner or later. Even Mama when she's balancing on one leg while shaving. Ok, so we know it saves heads and shins from bruises, but it also has some really cool features added to it.
The top is a nice big oval hole to allow you access to your shower diverter (that thing that you pull to get the water to go from coming out of the faucet to come out of the shower head). The "water deflector" is like a "pair of cupped hands" that overflow and spill over (this is my description, not Boon's). The deflector is made of a soft plastic (anti-bruise) and it allows the water to come out of the faucet like a waterfall. The picture on the box shows a little girl rinsing out her long hair with this feature. My 8-month old daughter doesn't have hair that long, nor is she coordinated enough to lean back for a rinse. But it was helpful for filling up her cup to rinse her hair and she liked sticking her hand in the "waterfall." At first I was a little worried about the "cupped-ness" of the deflector. I thought that the pooled water would sit there and be a breeding ground for shower gunk. Then after a few minutes after the water was turned off, I noticed the water had disappeared from the cup. I ran my finger in the dip of the cup and Boon is so smart they put a small hole there so there is no breeding ground for shower gunk. The most fun feature is the bubble bath dispenser. The top has a flip top where you pour in your bubble bath so it's always ready for bath time. The top is nice and wide so you don't spill half your bubble bath into the bath instead of the dispenser. Then when you want bubbles, you push the button on the front of the cover and it allows a squirt to come down onto the deflector and to be whoosed down into the waterfall and it creates bubbles as the water falls into the tub! The longer you hold the button down, the bigger the squirt and the more the bubbles.

Ok, so I think this is a pretty cool gadget. Most parents need to have a faucet cover anyway. Why not have one that is functional too?! Oh, and for all the hip parents Boon has made the design pretty styling with it's mod lines. The very best part....... it took 2 seconds to install. No joke. You just squeeze the deflector to the top (like a clothes pin) and pop over the faucet. It can't get any better than that!

So, Boon was generous enough to allow me the opportunity to test drive the Flō, but they also want to share the love. They are offering a Flō to one of our readers.
