Mess Eaters: Desk Caddy Review by Leslie Talley

The Mess Eaters: Desk Caddy is a cute and functional storage solution. The bright colors and adorable monster characters make this caddy perfect for your little student. This is a complete product that has Velcro dividers that can be arranged in different sizes to meet your specific storage needs. Children as young as two or three would be able to use it to organize things but in order to rearrange the dividers children would probably need to be four to five years old. My children enjoyed using The Desk Caddy. It was a fun way to keep organized at their desk. We wish there were more color options. The Desk Caddy costs $9.99.

The Mess Eaters: Crayon Roll is another cute storage solution perfect for your on-the-go artist. The Crayon Roll holds up to 10 crayons in a compact Velcro secured case. It is bright and cheerful with another adorable character just waiting to help create a masterpiece. Included with the Crayon Roll are 10 European-made crayons and a clip to attach it to a belt loop, lunch box or backpack, or any number of things. This product is great for children as young as two but they will likely need help getting the crayons back in their little spaces. My children like the Crayon Roll because it gave them a compact space to store their crayons and it was easy to open, close, and store. The only thing I’d change is how hard it is for the littlest of hands to put the crayons away. The Crayon Roll costs $9.99.

The Book Buggee – Fire Truck doubles as a place for storing books and a pull along toy. Its cute design makes it hard to resist using it only for books. Not only does it have room for many books but there is plenty of space to add a few favorite stuffed animals too. The Book Buggee would be great for a toddler who is confident on their feet. My children enjoyed The Book Buggee and like I mentioned above it has been used for more than just books. I like that it is wooden but wish that it wasn’t as heavy. The Book Buggee drives smoothly and costs $39.99.
