Neat-Oh: Review and Giveaway!





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™!

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.

Workzone 2-sided Large Playmat

Want the boldness of a beautiful play zone but not the loss of space? The two sided Construction/Roadville Playmat by Neat-Oh! is double the fun. One side has a mechanic's shop, gas station, quarry and roads which need repair and construction. The other side is a vehicle and train lovers’ delight, a village with roads and rails. (The tracks are the same gauge as most wooden trains) When it’s time to go, roll up or fold and stow away! Construction/Roadville includes two construction vehicles.

My Review:

Both my girls and the children in my family child care program have thoroughly enjoyed playing with both Neat-Oh products we received a few months ago. They are high quality in their design and materials, brightly colored, come with a few accessories (doll, and two cars) and have provided HOURS of fun, imaginative play. Exactly what a parent wants. What I love best though is both products are made of wipe-clean materials, perfect for little hands that tend to get messy at the drop of a hat:) If you are looking for a great gift idea for the little ones in your life, I cannot suggest Neat-Oh products enough. With the great variety of licensed products like Barbie, Hotwheels and Lego, there is something for everyone.

I highly recommend Neat-Oh products and give them a huge thumbs up.
