Wow! This is such a fast and easy solution to an all to common problem.
The guys at Key|Smart have come up with this simple solution that anyone can use, and the magnet is super strong. The price is so cheap that you could put these on any switch you wanted - in the garage, by the front door, a closet. You could even change out a a screw somewhere else to hold small tools - a screwdriver or a bottle opener, just to name some useful items. :-)
Their other Life Solving product is their Key|Smart keyring. It's a pocket knife for your keys. No bulk. No sounding like a janitor walking down the hallway. Just a sleek and simple solution. I need one!
So you have the stroller. You can pack a few things into it, but let’s face it - carting around a kid requires a military quartermaster to keep track of all the things you will need from bottles, wipes, snacks, pants, toys, hats, and oh yeah, room for your stuff.
You have to find a way to keep all your accoutrement organized, and it is not easy to find a stroller organizer that can fit all of your demands.
Joe, founder of Ethan & Emma, suffered the same struggle and endeavored to create his own solution.
Joe wanted an organizer that offered more storage space, cup holders that could hold something bigger than a soda can, and a way to attach this organizer to any stroller on the market. His background in manufacturing gave him the skills to see the product through to production and years of retail experience led him in his course to bring this fantastic idea to the market that needs it. This organizer is a wonderful example of a superior product developed by parents for parents.
Now for the details of what Ethan & Emma has brought us.
Out of the box, it’s clear how compact this organizer can get. Folded up it takes up no more room than a fanny pack, remember those? So it’s easy to travel with this product anywhere you plan to use any stroller.
Two large flaps on either side of the organizer allow you to mount the stroller on any handle bar set up by wrapping the flaps around attaching the velcro back on itself.
Ready to roll, you now have everything you need right in front of you. There are two deep and insulated pockets for holding drinks. These are great, thought out features. Insulated cup holders, big enough to hold your steel water bottle and deep enough to make sure that large iced coffee travels securely.
Between the cup holders is a parent friendly square pocket as deep as the cup holders with a flap covering that has a mesh zipper pocket built into the top. This mesh pocket is a perfect place to keep a metro card, easy pass cards for theme parks, or even a grocery list. I currently use it to store blog business cards.
That same middle pocket keeps the flap closed with a magnetic strip to allow access without the noise from ripping Velcro to wake a sleeping child. Obviously this was a function a parent knew needed to be featured.
If you are looking to store a few more items beyond the necessities, there is a large zippered pouch attached to the main organizer with a zipper. Put wipes, plastic bags, pacifiers, or anything else you would need and then need to bring around to the front of the stroller. Easy on, easy off.
A deep mesh pocket next to the zippered pouch completes the main unit with a perfect place to stash your cell phone.
But wait…THERE’S MORE! That’s right, just as you packed all your belongings and are ready to head out, your kid brings out his two dinosaurs that have to come with us, or her magical flute that travels everywhere with her now. If you need more space there are TWO MORE pockets that are cleverly stashed with Velcro right under the main compartments. Pull the Velcro and roll out two large mesh pockets that hang securely below everything else and stay out of the way while walking.
You’re set! Once you find your way back home after an afternoon of excitement, all the pockets easily fold up, close up and create the simple streamlined organizer you started with. A quick wipe down with a damp cloth will clear any messes you find at the end of your day.
For my money, this organizer checked all the boxes without sacrificing necessary space for gimmicks. Infinitely useful, infinitely practical, and infinitely adaptable, the Ethan & Emma Stroller Organizer is an excellent purchase that you will be happy with and touting its perks to your friends the first chance you get.
