Back-to-School Round-Up: Snackeez, Flips Audio, Copper Fit, and Master Lock

As we get settled into the routine of the new year, my teen daughters are enjoying the review of several new items to the market, great for several back-to-school needs.IMG_20140826_185202119

1. Snackeez Travel Cup (MSRP: $9.99): My 16-yr-old literally squealed when she saw the Snackeez drink/snack combo cup on the counter. Dishwater safe, this 2-in-1 snack cup boasts a fliptop snack lid, 4 oz snack cup, non-slip grip and 16 oz. drinking cup. She loved filling the top with Triscuits and the bottom with pink lemonade and loved the curious glances all day at school the first day. Everything stayed sealed in and safe until ready to consume.


2. Flips Audio FH2814BK Collapsible HD Headphones and Stereo Speakers, Black (MSRP: $120): These incredibly cool headphones that flip to become speakers were immediately snapped up by my 17-yr-old daughter who loves anything audio/video (just like her dad). She wants to go to college for film and picks up technology very fast. Flips are headphones with custom vented ear cups & memory foam that turn into 40mm neodymium speakers with amplified sound. They fold and store in a protective case that comes with purchase. A rechargeable Li-Polymer battery recharges via standard USB cord.



3. Copper Fit Copper Infused Knee Sleeve (MSRP $19.99/2 + $7.99 s&h on Copper Fit website) – My 16-yr-old plays volleyball and rides horses, doing both almost daily during the Fall. She gets aches and pains in her ankles and I thought she could perhaps try the knee compression sleeve for her leg. She thought it felt like a legging and took it off. I think I would need to buy a smaller sleeve for her than the one received for review. The benefits of the sleeve are that it helps reduce recovery time of muscles, wick sweat away from the body, provides support for muscle stiffness and pain and supports improved circulation of active muscles.

4. Master Lock Dialspeed Electronic Combination Padlock (MSRP $39.68): (Note: The vendor on Amazon lists it at $89 but the Masterlock website lists it at $39.68) This nifty digital padlock is mine to treasure. My kids are provided locks at school so I get to use this one when I go to the Y or other various places I need to secure my belongings. Love the lightup keypad with one hand operation. And, if you forget your password, head over to where you can back up your passwords for easy retrieval. (Note: that’s my daughter’s chipped nail polish showing off the cool light-up feature – just sayin’).


MasterLock Digital
