Travel Essentials part four- SHolder giveaway exclusive!

This is the final part of my travel essentials reviews. Now, this is one product that I had to turn down in the end. It wasn’t an easy task as the product itself looks amazing and I really wanted one BUT the toddler is too small and the big one, I know, would not wear it without fussing. I also felt it wasn’t quite what I was looking for for a holiday in Florida. However, I did think that it was such a fabulous new product that I agreed to host a giveaway as part of this feature. So, let me introduce the SHolder.

The SHolder is a new, innovative product that has only just been launched onto the market, so its likely that you won’t have seen many around yet. Its designed for kids aged between 3 and 9 years old and literally allows you to try some of that ‘hands free’ parenting you sometimes hear about…

The following features come as standard: security name tag; reflective strips for safety; zip pocket for valuables; a weatherproof mac/ poncho and a water bottle holder. Its basically a fun shoulder sash that allows children to grab a taste of independence. As you can see from the picture, kids can carry all the important stuff during days out, which leaves your bag free to carry all of your important rubbish stuff instead.


The SHolder comes in two sizes, 3-5yrs and 6-9yrs. For more information, you canย  call 08453 90 80 68 or email


I have one SHolder Kit to giveaway toย  one lucky reader! All you need to do is leave me a comment with your email address, and tell me about a super family day out that you have had recently. It doesn’t need to be a long comment, just a few lines that lets me know about the fab ways you make days out fun. One entry will be chosen at random in one week’s time- Tuesday 9th August 2011 at 4pm.

The giveaway is open to UK residents only and the prize is one SHolder Kit in your specified size. The kit will be sent out by MummyMitts.

So that’s it- what are you waiting for? This looks like such a fab product, I would love to know what you think!

    How cool is that? I would totally love one, particularly as PD insists on bringing an assortment of things with her wherever we go. I alwyas end up carrying a stuffed dog or three, especially on the beach, which we hit most weekends. I have to keep them safe, apparently, because they don’t like sand. Which begs the question…..
    Parenting: such fun!!

    Oh my word, that would solve SO many of my problems! Edith is obsessed with handbags and likes to take a ton of stuff with us wherever we go, which causes issues in terms of having free hands to hold. They definitely look like a fab idea and I could start using some of my very pretty SMALL hadbags again!

    (I would leave my details, but I think you might already have them ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

    Wow. Thanks for such a lovely write up on My SHolder Kit. I thought i would leave you with a rhyme, of when we went to Legoland for the day:)

    “Didn’t we have a lovely time, the day we went to Windsor,

    With our SHolder Kits, they were a hit, and all for under a score you know.

    With a drink by our side, and a mac for grey skies, toys and snacks to keep us happy.

    We stayed nice and dry, as we flew through the skies, thanks to the poncho.

    So if you want your bits in one funky kit,

    Mrs Mummy Mitts x

    Our best family days out usually involve going to the local beauty spot with a picnic and playing in all the parks x None of the long car journeys or the ‘are we nearly there yets’ just fun memories and a five minute car journey home ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m @pipersky1 on Twitter ๐Ÿ™‚

    What a great idea! DD’s a bit too young for this at the moment but when she’s older… ๐Ÿ˜€
