273 IHeart: Boon Grip and a GIVEAWAY!



We all have proud moments as parents.  First steps.  First words.  First lost tooth.  First grand slam at a little league game.

I recently had a VERY proud moment as a mom.

One of my fav companies, Boon Inc, recently popped over a Boon Grip for us to try out.


I was beyond excited and my poor hubs was listing in as I was spouting out 101 ways we could use the new hook system.  Parker was nearby and thought it would be a good idea to chime in with his thoughts on the subject.

"Mom, I think we should put it in the playroom, and use it to organize our Wii controllers!"

I have created a five year old organizing genius.  His idea was far superior to any I had thought up.  So we implemented Parker's first organizing project!

Using a level and some wall anchors, the hook installed quickly and easily, right next to the entertainment center in the playroom.


The next step was just to hang the WiiMotes and WiiWheels {using some ribbon}, on the hooks!

Super smart.  Super simple!  Super big smiles!

{yes, the wiimotes are loved in this house, and dirty!}

Of course, we just found one way out of the infinite options that are available for the hook.  It's sleek, durable, kid friendly and versatile enough to work in any room of the home!



Boon Inc loves you too!  Today, they are giving one of these sweet hook systems away to YOU!




Here are the details:
  • Giveaway is for one Boon Grip Hook {a $30 value!} 
  • Giveaway is open to US only
  • Giveaway is open from Tuesday, November 22nd through 9:00 p.m. central time, Monday, November 28th, and the winner will be announced right here on Tuesday, November 29th.
  • One winner will be selected using random.org.
  • Please ensure I have your blog or email address so I have a way to contact you if you win.

To enter:
Thanks everyone and good luck!


Psssst!  I wasn't paid or swayed to write this post, I was just offered a Boon Grip to provide an open and honest review and giveaway!

  1. That thing is awesome! I have other Boon products that I really like. I would probably use it in our playroom as well for dress up clothes and bags my little girl plays with.

    ReplyDelete
  2. Definitely a cool product. I would put it in the laundry room for my aprons, bags, miscellaneous stuff that I never know where to hang.

    ReplyDelete
  3. I would use it to hang up the growing number of coats and bags my toddler seems to be accumulating! I didn't know a toddler could have so many coats!

    ReplyDelete
  4. I would put it at the top of our basement steps. We sorely need a spot to hang winter hats and gloves.

    ReplyDelete
  5. I would use this for all my pups items we need in a quick snag. My husband and I don't have kids yet so Winston (our pup) is our "child". We have things of his we need to have organized to grab at a quick hand, leash, collar (he only wears it when outside), towel (to dry him off on wet and snowy days), toys, etc., clippers, brushes. I know.. i know spoiled right. This would be neat to utilize though!

    ReplyDelete
  6. OMG! That is cool. I never heard of them until now.

    By the way, how do I know if you have my contact information? I don't remember completing any form.
    Thanks!

  7. What a funky wall hook! I'd put in my long hallway.

    ReplyDelete
  8. I would put next to our front door because my girls have a tendency to take off coats and backpack anywhere on the floor.

  9. I would put it in my son's room for pants and pjs not too dirty

    ReplyDelete
  10. I definitely would use it to organize all of my necklaces. Right now they get all tangled up and these hooks would work perfectly! I "liked" Boon Inc. and also "follow" them on Twitter! Thanks for this opportunity! :)

    ReplyDelete
  11. I'd put it in my daughter's room to hang her coats/sweatshirts.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I would put the boon hooks in my son's room upstairs to help organize the gazillion things he has!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I think these would have to go in my baby girls room! We would use it to hang her coats/sweaters and bags, etc. Cute cute!

    ReplyDelete
  14. What a great idea! I would definitely use it for Wii controllers too - they always get misplaced in our house.

    ReplyDelete
  15. This would be great in the front entryway to organize my baby girl's hats and jackets.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Goodness - they have the cutest rubber ducks, but I absolutely love the hooks. I could use one of these in every room in my house.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I would use this to hang my daughters coats at her height on the wall.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I think I would have to take a cue from Parker and use it for our gaming remotes. We have a Wii and Playstation and as of right now they are jumbled in a plastic box. It's a messy place for sure.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Honestly, I would use it the same way as you. All of our Wii remotes are in an unsightly boring plastic bin and the buttons always get pushed causing the batteries to drain faster. Your son is a genius!!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I like them on Facebook, especially because they are in my town, yay!!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I am now following them on twitter!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. There are too many places I could use this! But i think I would put it in my kids' room

    ReplyDelete
  23. I need one of these so bad! I would hang all of my pretty necklaces from it! Right now all my necklaces are hanging from tacks and it looks plain tacky!

    ReplyDelete
  24. The kiddos room! Especially since we are in a rental with limited space.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I liked Boon on Facebook and Twitter!

  26. Hi! I heart this blog. :) Really though, this was interesting. Great photos. It looks practical. Now I want to play the wii. Thanks for the idea!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Definitely in the baby's room....he has so many little hats, coats, etc. this would really help to organize.

    Thanks!

    - Christine

  28. I must give your kid some props. That's a terrific idea!

    I'll have to do the same thing for my WII system :)

  36. I love your (or rather your little's) idea to use it for wii remotes - we even have the perfect spot! It would also be so super duper awesome as a hook for backpacks and coats - something for which I have yet to find the perfect solution!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I would love to put this in my kids closet!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I've been trying to find a pretty way to organize my embroidery hoops, this would be perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I would use it for my Jewelry storage!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I would put this in my room to organize my purses, scarves, gloves, and coats for winter/fall.

    ReplyDelete
  43. My kitchen to hang my aprons or my closet for scarves and such. Using this for your Wii remotes is genius!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I'd put it in our nursery so we could hang up all our cute new baby clothes and blankies where you can see them. :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. I like them on Facebook! (with a Side of Sneakers)

    ReplyDelete
  46. I would hang it in my son's room!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  49. I would hang it by my back door (which is where we come in) to hang purses, hats, etc to keep them off the kitchen table!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I would use this in our laundry/utility room for holding dog leashes, umbrellas, tote bags, and all manner of sundry items!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Visited the website! This would totally work great by our hallway by the garage.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Following on twitter. Pick me!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Liked it on Facebook - there are so many ways I would use this. I think it would be great with the Wii's - like you. It would also be great in the garage as you enter into our house. So much can be organized there too!!

    [email protected]

    ReplyDelete
  54. I need a place for my wii remotes too! they are currently shoved into my tv stand, which drives me nuts. I could also use it to organize my dog's leashes, or I could buy a few more and hang jewelry on them...

    I check out their website and I LOVE the stackable caterpillar containers. I don't have kids yet, but what a great gift for a baby shower.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I would use this in my boys bedroom to hang their school bags and coats.

  65. Would love to put this in my son's room...maybe he would actually hang his clothes instead of throwing them on the floor..

    [email protected]

    ReplyDelete
  66. I'd love to use it on my closet door to hang scarves and belts!

    ReplyDelete
  67. I would use this for coats in our mudroom!

    ReplyDelete
  68. I would either use it at school to hang my jacket and coat on so they don't get student stuff all over them and for my emergency stuff. OR at home to hang my Wii stuff on or for my clothes for the next day. I need to get organized that way!

    ReplyDelete
  69. I would put it in my bedroom to organize my scarves or purses!

  75. I'd use the Grip at our laundry room/back door. It's where we let the dogs in and out so I'd hang up the leashes and the old towels we use to dry them off before letting them loose in the house.

  78. I adore Boon products!!!! I'm guessing I'd use this in the nursery or boys' room, but who knows. It could be used almost anywhere.

    ReplyDelete
  79. I love this! Would totally put this in my son's room, always wanting more organization :)

    ReplyDelete
  80. Love the versatility of this product! I would put it in my mudroom for bags/coats/hats.

  82. This would go great in my little boy's room. We just moved and I am in desperate need of things like this to hang stuff! [email protected]

    ReplyDelete
  83. I think this would be perfect at the top of my basement stairs to organize all those reusable shopping bags, umbrellas, etc.

  84. I love this! I would use this in our entry way for our little ones to hang their back packs and jackets. :)

    Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  85. Dog accessories. I didn't even have to think about it. Leashes need somewhere to be hung to dry and since our doxie won't go outside without her jacket, that needs a place to dry too.

    ReplyDelete
  86. I would use this in my kid's room to hang clothes on. Super neat.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Ooh, where do I start? I'd use it for the kids' towels in the bathroom, or for the girls' dress-up clothes in their room, or I really love the idea of organizing the Wii remotes... so many choices!

    ReplyDelete
  88. I just want to say your blog is the CUTEST!!

    If I had the Boon I would use it to hang my jewelery, headbands and other accessories.
    I currently just throw them all in one drawer and do a scavenger hunt whenever I need one, so I think it would be cool and helpful.

    :)

    ReplyDelete
  89. I would love to put the Boon in my son's closet. He has tons of Halloween costumes...you know, for those "everyday I'm a super hero" years. But the material is too delicate for coat hooks and they get ripped...this would be an excellent solution.

    Thanks as always for your insight Jen!

    ReplyDelete
  90. This is perfect for my scarves! I liked them on Facebook. Great idea!

    ReplyDelete
  91. This product looks awesome!! I would love to win it. My email is [email protected]

  92. I wonder how much weight they can hold up. I would use them for my bookbags and other assorted things that always end up littering my floors. In fact, if they come in other colors eg, black, it might be a good idea to completely cover a bag of a corridor door with these and hang up every riff-raff that annoys you out of sight.

    ReplyDelete
  93. It's so cute! That's what I love about Boon products...they are so attractive while staying super functional. I'm going to be boring and say that I would put it inside my kitchen door, to store jackets and hats when we come inside. Right now we are using the hooks that stick to the wall....except they don't stick too well sometimes. This is a much better (and more attractive!) choice!

    ReplyDelete
  94. And I'm following them on Twitter. :)

    ReplyDelete
  95. Oh I love this! I would put it in the mud room so my kids can hang their own coats upi =)

  99. This would be the most useful in our front closet, for scarves, mittens, hats, etc... but it is so cute that I would need to have it out and on display :)

    ReplyDelete
  106. Where I would use it is not the question...where wouldn't I use it would be more appropriate. :)

    I would use one in my closet for scarves. I would use one in my girls rooms for sweaters and bags. I would use one in the playroom for all sorts of stuff....I could think of a million other uses too.

  138. We have no coat closet (infact the only 2 closets in our house are in our bedroom, and the heater closet in the utility room, the kid's room doesn't even have one, we had to use an armoire) so I think I would use this in my bedroom to hang our coats so the coat racks in the living room can be saved for guests and only 1 of our coats each, not all of them piled. Or maybe I would use it for purses so they're not just piled in the closet. Decisions decisions...

I would use it in my pantry to hang my recycable grocery bags; in the bathroom to hang used towels; by the door to hang the dog leash, my purse, umbrellas, etc.; In the coat closet to hang winter hats, scarves, mittens, etc.
