In this post, I am going to share with you my favourite baby products made by Munchkin that will help make what’s left of your summer vacation even better. There is also a giveaway to enter at the bottom of this post, open to US & Canadian residents! Just click the link below the giveaway picture at the end of this post to get instructions on how to enter. Good luck, everyone!
I don’t know about you, but our house is full of Munchkin products. In the bathroom we have Munchkin rubber ducks. In the kitchen we have a large assortment of Munchkin plates, spoons, and spill-proof cups. In the nursery we have a Munchkin sound machine and change table cover. They are a company that my family trusts, and I had no issues in partnering with them for this post because I already loved their products. Since my house was already outfitted with Munchkin products, when their company asked to collaborate I thought it would be fun to test out some of their products made for travelling.
Top Munchkin Products to Help You During Summer Vacation
Miracle® 360° Cup
So far in my mom career, we have been through a lot of trainer cups, and honestly most have failed. Some have too many parts (the straws always go missing!), they end up leaking, or you can’t get them clean enough.
Well, it appears that my kids have finally met their match. At 4 and 1 1/2, they both LOVE the miracle cup, but I think I love it even more! They are completely spill-proof, are easy to clean, and there are no extra parts to worry about. I probably could have written this entire article on this cup.
But I digress.
- Toddler cup with dentist recommended spoutless design
- 360° degree drinking edge eliminates spills completely
- Drink from any side of the cup. Simply tilt the cup and suck on the valve’s edge. Do not bite.
- Cup automatically seals when child stops drinking
- Perfect cup for your nightstand — doesn’t spill when you’re in bed
- Great for older kids too
- Easy to clean with no extra valves or parts
- Top rack dishwasher safe
- 12+ months
Cool™ Bottle Bag
This bottle bag is pretty great. It has its own removable ice pack, and can hold up to four bottles and then can fold right down for easy storage. We have two of these bags – one for the kids and one for the adults, and they have come in handy so far this summer on camping trips and our day excursions.
- Holds up to 4 bottles including wide neck styles and Dr. Brown’s
- Includes removable ice pack to keep bottles cool
- Folds flat for easy storage
- Versatile bag also holds lunches and snacks
- Easy to clean
These Snack Catchers are a life-saver in the car – since starting to use them this month, our Goldfish-to-floor ratio has declined exponentially. The kids love having their own special cups to hold their awesome snacks, and I love that they curb the mess while the kids stay in good humour.
- Toddler snack container with lid and soft flaps for easy food access
- Holds up to 9 ounces of snacks
- Fits most standard cup holders in cars, carseats, strollers, etc.
- Great for home, daycare or on-the-go use

GoBoost™ Travel Booster Seat
This booster seat is so cute and yet takes up no space at all! We keep ours tucked away in the back of our car, ready for the next visit to Grandpa’s or a last-minute rest stop. It also has a handy compartment where I store some eating ware, a couple diapers and some wipes….Don’t forget the wipes!
- Ultra portable with a strong and stable internal frame
- Includes storage for bottles, diapers and more
- Durable and easy to clean materials

Are We There Yet™ Travel Tray
This Munchkin travel tray helped to keep my busy toddler and preschooler entertained on our recent 2.5 hour car ride to our campsite – which is not an easy feat. I love that it includes a snack dispenser and that it has a cushioned bottom for comfort. Our preschooler loves playing with small action figures and this travel tray provides the perfect landing for her space trips and underwater adventures. In addition, the raised tray walls and attached mesh pocket are a huge help in keeping all her toys wrangled together.
- Cushioned, thermoformed, ergonomic design
- Tray table attaches securely to car seat sides
- Reversible surface
- Raised tray walls and convenient mesh organizer/storage pocket
- Includes Snack Catcher® lidded snack dispenser
- Designed for kids 2+ years old
Baby In-Sight® Magical Firefly™ Auto Mirror
Both of our babies hated the car, so naturally I wanted to review this Baby In-Sight® Magical Firefly™ Auto Mirror in case we have another in the future. I love that while you use its mirror to keep an eye on your rear-facing children, it also has both entertainment and soothing modes to cover all the bases.
- Choreographed LED lights that light up in fun shapes and patterns in entertaining mode and gently fade on and off in soothing mode
- Choose entertaining or soothing mode with up to 24 minutes of music available
- Remote lets you control the music, lights and volume from the driver’s seat
- Eight high-quality, custom songs that are adult and kid friendly
- Auto shutoff to conserve battery life
- Shatter-resistant Clear-Sight™ Mirror for superior reflection and a distortion-free image
- Multiple attachment options securely fit most vehicles
Cling™ White Hot® Pop Open Shade – 2 Pack
There is nothing that kids on a long car ride despise more than getting sun in their eyes. These BRICA Cling™ SunSafety™ Shades stay on your windows snugly and then fold compactly when not in use for easy storage. These really do stick on seamlessly without having to worry about suction cups that lost their stick or rolling down windows to take them on and off.
- White Hot® heat alert system indicates when the car is too hot
- Blocks over 90% of harmful UV rays
- Made of a dual-layer lightweight mesh/ PVC material that securely clings to your window with no adhesive required

These seat covers for under your child’s safety seat protect your car upholstery from spills, crumbs, and compression damage. They are very easy to install, and can be wiped clean on an as needed basis.

By-my-Side™ Safety Harness Backpack
At one point in my life, probably before having kids, I would have scoffed at the idea of putting a harness backpack on my child. But then I had my son. He is a wanderer and an explorer, two traits that I am sure I will admire when he is older, but right now I just need to keep him safe.
With the By-my-Side™ Safety Harness Backpack, my son has the freedom to run around in busy or hazardous areas, and not always be constrained within a carrier or stroller. It works as a small functional backpack and includes an optional tether for times when you need to keep your toddler extra safe. My toddler loves wearing his new backpack.
- Optional tether is removable for years of backpack use
- Shock absorbing tether helps reduce tension and improve comfort
- Swivel clip helps keep the tether strap from tangling
- Toy loop lets you keep your child’s favorite small toy or trinket close at hand
- Top loop lets you hang the backpack on a hook
