My Thoughts:
Not familiar with Cool Gear?  I wasn’t until I stumbled across their website, while looking for an on-the-go storage container for my daughter’s snacks.  You don’t know how excited I was to find a product like the Snack Time container, which not only stores snacks, but also keeps your child’s drink cold.  This is perfect for travel!  
 
I couldn’t believe the assortment of products that Cool Gear offered. I felt like each one was designed to help make moms lives easier, all while offering unique and fun ways to store snacks, cereals and drinks for on-the-go.  There have been times that I have packed snacks and drinks for my daughter, only to forget an insulated bag to keep them cold, forgot to chill the freezer packs, or the items spoiled because it was too hot in the car or outside to keep the items I packaged cold.  But, now I don’t have to worry about this, thanks to Cool Gear.  
 
My husband has been enjoying the Cereal on the Go storage container at work.  Because we are back on baby duty and up all night, my husband has to make a mad dash out the door in the AM in order to make it to work on time, after help with late night feedings with our new daughter, Arabella.  So, the night before, he packs his cereal and milk in this BPA-Free container and stores it in the refrigerator.  Then, before heading out the door the next day, he grabs this and is ready to enjoy a bowl of cereal with cold milk once he arrives to work.  
 
In addition, I recently used the Cereal on the Go when my oldest daughter, Savannah, went to spend the day with her maternal grandparents.  Because we got up early to head to their house, Savannah wasn’t in the mood for her morning cereal.  But, I knew that we would have to make a pit stop along the way to feed her, once she finally woke up and got hungry.  Instead of worrying where to stop along the way for food, I simply filled these two compartments with her favorite cereal and milk, and when she got hungry, I was able to pull over and feed her.  What a lifesaver this product is, not only for my daughter, but for my husband.
As for the Cool Zooey Flip Top Bottle, without this product, I would still be teaching my daughter, Savannah, how to drink from a straw.  We had tried in the past with other sippy cups with built-in straws, but she didn’t take to them, like she did with the Cool Zooey Flip Top Bottle.  After one use, she was enjoying drinking from this bottle.  And, as a result, when we head out for car rides, I can now fill this bottle with her favorite juice and she is good for the entire car ride, with a cold beverage.
 
Overall, these products from Cool Gear are “Cool!”  They have made my life as a busy, on-the-go mom, so much easier.  And, when it comes time to serve up cold drinks and snacks while on the road, I can count on Cool Gear to keep my little one satisfied, all while enjoying her chilled drinks and snacks.
 
I was talking to a friend the other day about these products, and she said she would send her children to their full-day summer camps with the Cereal on the Go containers, so that their children could enjoy breakfast while on the bus, heading to their daily field trips.  While other kids were snacking on chips and other unhealthy snacks, her children were able to enjoy their favorite cereal with cold milk.  This would tide them over until lunch time, and give them energy to last the entire day in the hot sun or on the go, enjoying their summer camp experience.  
 
So, as you can see, these “Cool” products from Cool Gear really do come in handy for various on-the-go situations and for each member of your family.  With the holidays around the corner, these products and others from Cool Gear would make for great stocking stuffers, as well as a nice gift set for children and adults.  Click here to check out the full product line from Cool Gear now!
