This amazing invention is a child's bowl that is designed to keep the food inside the container, rather than on the floor, no matter what the angle. This revolutionary design ensures that if the bowl dips precariously close to what you think is a spill angle, it will not spill. Swing the bowl around and around, and what is inside stays inside. 'The Magic is in the middle,' as the commercial says.
With the Gyro Bowl, you can confidently fill it with snacks, cereal or anything else your toddler enjoys, and you can be sure it will either stay in the bowl or end up in your child's stomach.
The science behind this product is similar to the gyroscope. Remember the toy gyroscope? The device was invented in 1917, and for decades it has been a popular educational toy. That toy was based on a device used to measure or maintain orientation. Technically, the gyroscope is based on the principles of conservation of angular momentum and inertia. The inner chamber of the bowl rotates to find its own center of gravity. What that means is that the gyroscope stays steady while its axle takes up any orientation. In the case of the Gyro Bowl, this means that what you put in the bowl stays in the bowl.
While based on the same principle, using the spill-proof Gyro Bowl is a lot more fun than mining or tunneling. And it can save you a lot of clean up time.
When you fill it with a food item or snack, like Cheerios, the Gyro Bowl will always maintain a position with the open side facing up. This means that the Cheerios will not spill out. If your child moves the Gyro Bowl, the contents stay safe. The bowl stays steady while another bowl covers it up.
The result is you can feel safe letting your child take snacks in the car, the living room and in the store as he rides along in the grocery cart. When your little one is done with his snack, snap shut the stay-fresh lid until a later time.
While moms will love the spill-proof nature of the Gyro Bowl, the kids will like the bright turquoise and orange colors. This kid-proof product is made from a BPA-free sturdy plastic and it is dishwasher safe.
This amazing storage container can also be used by the grown-ups in your house. Dad can fill it with nails or tacks when he's working on a household project. The feet at the bottom of the bowl will keep it steady, even as he reaches for a nail. Mom can fill it with a variety of household products, like paperclips. That way, she will always have what she needs at her finger tips.
Older siblings can also fill it with their snacks. Place a Gyro Bowl full of fruit or trail mix next to their computer or game system, and you'll know that nothing is going to spill out.
