Toy Tie

I went to lunch the other day with a friend and took little Grant with me.  He sat in the highchair and proceeded to throw every single one of the toys I brought on the floor.  I spent the majority of our time in the restaurant trying to catch them before they hit the ground or wiping them off with baby wipes.  On the way home I began thinking of how I could make things easier when we are out and Grant is in the grocery cart, his stroller, or a highchair playing with his toys.  Then it came to me, a toy tie.  I'm sure someone out there has already thought of this but I felt pretty smart because I havn't seen them before.  It's along the same line as a binky clip but no velcro.

Here's what you will need:
Ribbon and a mitten/suspender clip (you can find these in the notions section at Joann's or Hobby Lobby)

Cut your ribbon to the length you desire.  I cut mine fairly long but it is up to you.  Now make a loop at one end and stitch it together.

Take the other end and loop it through the suspender clip and stitch.

Now when you are ready to go out and about take the toy of your choice, put the suspender clip end of the ribbon through the loop and pull, like so: 

Clip the suspender clip to your car seat, stroller, your child's bib, or anything else you can think of.  I couldn't wait to try mine out so we went grocery shopping and I clipped his toy to the cart cover and it worked like a charm.  No more toys hitting the dirty ground and no more spending so much energy trying to catch them before they hit.


  1. Wonderful Idea! I just got a few of those clips to make binky clips for the same reason! Now I know what to do with some more!!!
