I saw the Straw-lution straw a few years ago and thought it was clever, but then I forgot about it. But a few recent road trip incidents with my toddler prompted me to dig through my bookmarks to find it. It's the kind of product our parents and grandparents probably roll their eyes at - do kids really need a special straw? - but if it eliminates a lot of mess in your life, why not? This straw has small anchors so when it goes into a cup, juice box, yogurt container, etc. it doesn't come out (or not easily anyway). The straws are mom-invented, BPA-free, reusable and dishwasher safe. Smart all around.
