Neat-Oh Zip Bin: Review and Giveaway!

Do your children love to take toys with them when you go in the car, visit family or friends, or even when you go out to eat? Do they end up wanting to bring a ton of things with them? If your family is anything like mine, this is a regular occurrence and can sometimes be a battle!


I was recently introduced to a product that will bring play and travel to a whole new level - Neat Oh! Zip Bins and I cannot wait to tell you all about them.




The Neat-Oh Zip Bins Story:


Could messiness be the mother of invention? ZipBin® storage originated when my inventive 10-year-old son, Max, and I put our heads together for some true "out-of-the-box" problem solving. Like many boys, Max loves plastic building blocks. And he likes to dump them on the floor-CRASHHH!! Of course, I loved to see Max play, but I groaned when I heard that loud mess of blocks spilling everywhere. Neither Max nor I liked cleaning up all those little pieces.
Inspired by our problem, we thought creatively about how to solve it until... what if Max's toy bin unzipped to a play mat and zipped back up, capturing his toys? That would take the work out of having fun. It would be neat! And that's the name we chose for the company - Neat-Oh!® - that would introduce ZipBin® storage to the world...
Neat-Oh! International, LLC, established in February 2005, brings innovative products to market that help consumers simplify their lives. The company's flagship products are its patent pending ZipBin® line of attractively designed, transportable and collapsible interactive storage products that unzip to become activity or play surfaces, and then zip back up to storage bin form.
The company's name, Neat-Oh!®, is a direct result of how consumers verbally react when initially exposed to the charmingly innovative ZipBin® line of products. Privately-held, Neat-Oh! International, LLC, is headquartered in Northfield, IL




Dollhouse Play Pack:

Got to bring toys everywhere? Keep your fantasy kingdom with you at all times with the ZipBin® Princess Bring-Along BackPack™! The castle walls invite you inside by unzipping into a beautiful courtyard. Unzip the BackPack to find a two story doll house with a slide that leads into a swimming pool! It’s the perfect way for a princess to travel with space for more! When it’s time for your kingdom to move, the castle zips up, capturing the toys inside for easy clean up! This play set includes 1 beautiful 4" doll.

ZipBin Country Stable Play Set:

My review:
We generously received not one, but two, Neat-Oh Zip Bins - both of the products above, and we are LOVING them! My girls have played with both the Country Stable and Dollhouse for hours, bringing so much joy to them. The thing that I have loved the best is how much the Zip Bins bring out their imagination. Even at 2.5 years old, my youngest will create scenes with her big sister. They have learned so much about playing together, sharing and taking turns. All from one toy! Neat-Oh Zip Bins have a huge fan in this mother. The products are very well made and offer a lot of room, to place extra dolls or animals. This has been perfect for going to the grandparent's place for a visit.


If you have a Barbie, Lego or Hot Wheels fan in your home, I highly recommend you check out the complete line of Zip Bins and Play Mats from Neat-Oh. You will not be disappointed. 


A great product that I gladly give a huge thumbs up to!
