On a plate

I don't want another baby...one was enough work thank you very much. But this appeared on the gadget website Gizmodo and I just felt it has a place in my life. I'm not sure where. Perhaps I have to wait for the boy to grow up and have his own children. But until then it can reside here, just because I think it's a great idea and would have made my life so much easier 13 years ago.

Here's what they said:

Labeled as "gravity-defying," this spill-resistant bowl uses gyroscopes to avoid spillage, no matter which way kids turn, tip and flip it. Impressive, but I'm sure I can still find ways to create a mess.

In fact, the other day as a kid—while eating my sugary breakfast cereal—I would jump on my bed with my bowl still in hand: Spillage. Then there were those times I'd throw my bowl across the room when my mom would make me eat brussels sprouts: Spillage. Granted, those bowls didn't have the same type of technology, but gravity-defying? The Loopa gyroscope-equipped bowls probably would only be able to resist spilling to an extent, but anything involving kids and food cannot be 100% spill-resistant, can it?

Although it seems like just another gadget for gullible mothers, with a $8.95 price tag, it still might actually be worth giving the Loopa spill-resistant bowl a shot.


  1. Although I don't consider myself a gullible mom, I would be willing to pay money for this. I have spent hours picking up random food messes. My small boy has found the value of "free entertainment." lol

  2. I saw a similar idea for use on a houseboat. don't know whether it made someone a fortune.


There's only one thing worse than being commented on...not commented on
