Cap Trappers

When I heard about these I almost jumped for joy. As a mom, you know how difficult it is to keep those caps with the markers they belong to. I am so sick of finding markers all over the place and the caps are no where to be found.

Well Cap Trappers has solved that problem. Cap Trappers are a simple yet inexpensive way to keep your markers and caps in place, keep them organized and save you from having to replace dried out markers. Since we've had these the caps and markers tend to stay in one place and I'm not on a scavenger hunt through-out the house to find the caps before the markers dry out, I'm no longer at the store each week replacing the dried out markers that lurk around our home.

You simply place the markers with the caps on, into the Cap Trapper and the caps are held in a safe place where you can always find them to put the markers right back to. A Godsend in my house, I am telling you. These are also great to use in schools to keep on desks or even in your office. Cap Trappers come in two sizes, the original which holds average sized markers, pens and everything that you can think of that has a lid, and the professional sized Cap Trappers which will hold larger, fatter lids such as those with highlighters or dry erase markers.

I would like the black professional for my study. I am a full time college student as is my husband so this would make our orginization a lot easier!

Alitheia said...

I like the clear sparkle and I say the biggest problem this would solve for me is pens, I'm always losing them and they fall to the bottom of everything and this would make it simpler to keep them together =) Thanks for offering this product, it's such a great idea!

TheAngelForever said...

I like the black and white. This is a fabulous idea and would greatly help when the caps roll off the table and go into the land of the lost. Thanks for the great giveaway.

Pink, please. I need these as I have thrown away countless markers. Last time I told my daughter no more until it was back to school time (when I can get them cheap at Walmart). Since I'll be buying some soon, I'd love to make sure they last longer than normal, and save me a headache too! Thanks!

veggiemama said...

I like the pink and blue. I love to craft and my daughter is getting to that age of being able to use markers. This would be great!

Blue, i have a drawer devoted to mismatched pens and markers, this would help organzie them.

flchen1 said...

The clear sparkle for us! This would help us keep the markers together AND the caps on! Maybe we could actually use the markers for a while instead of slowly throwing the caps and markers out separately as we find them in random places around the house! Imagine that!

Julie said...

I like the white and my 21 month old son could definately use the help!

Liz said...

I like the clear sparkle and I need them because I'm a grandma and we do alot of arts and crafts and it is a constant search to find the lids. Under the sofa between the cushions, where ever the cat hid it. Karma loves to play with marker lids ponytails everything, and shes a cat. Its wild

louiseb130 said...

Black and white, please. Thanks for a great giveaway!

Parker Family said...

This is a great product! I would like the black and white, so not only would my daughter use it, but hopefully her future brothers (if there are any!) My daughter is getting to the stage where she likes to draw, so this would be great to make sure the lids get put back on! Thanks for the giveaway.

Ginny said...

My daughter could use this, I'd love to win the pink!

Ginny said...

I stumbled the post, for the extra entry.

Reiza said...

I'd like the blue.

I want them because I can't tell you how many markers we've had to throw away because the top got lost and the markers dried out. And then, a few days later, we wind up stepping on the missing top and getting hurt. I think this would solve that problem.

Liz said...

The blue is my favorite. And, THANKS for introducing me to a product I'd never seen!

mverno said...

love the blue it would help to keep me organized

Suzie G. said...

I like the pink and blue set. My daughter is always losing caps to her color wonder markers! Then by the time I find them they are dried out! I've gotten so tired of replacing them that as soon as I find a capless marker I put Glad Press and Seal around it until I can find the cap. I also SAVE caps from trashed markers if I find them later on!

idahomom said...

Pink and Blue. What a great idea! Thanks for the chance at such a great prize.

momo3 said...

i heart the clear sparkle. what a great idea . . . thanks for sharing! kristen.

Alyce said...

I like the clear sparkle. I need these because I have two little boys who like to color and then run off and do something else without putting the caps on. Simply stated they are typical kids.

Kristan said...

i like the clear sparkle. we're a little too little for markers just yet, but it's coming up...and seeing as we've lost everything else from someone walking off with it, no reason to believe markers would be any different!

jenny said...

wow how cool and well i be happy to have any color if i won this thanks

layla said...

I like the white. We have lost many marker caps at my house due to my 4 year old. My Mom tried to resolve this by taking a big bowl, filling it with cement, pushing the caps in the wet cement, and letting it set. Then you just push the marker into the cap after you've used it. It was a good idea, but it is heavy and takes up a lot of room. This product is a much better solution.

I'd like a set in black for my little artists.

cltgrace said...

THis is an awesome idea! I am a pediatric therapist, working with infants & toddlers with disabilities. This would be ideal to use with my toddlers as we build fine motor skills. PLUS, it will be easier to keep track of my marker caps. They will be safely tucked in my cap trapper, instead of spread throughout Chicagoland. Great idea! Thoughtful of you to host!

Kari said...

I'd like the blue or black. Thanks!!!

LisaW said...

I like the clear sparkle. I have 3 little boys, and anything that makes keeping their stuff in check sounds like a fabulous idea to me!

Karen said...

I would like Black or Blue. With three toddlers learning how to write, we use markers all the time, and just like you, it seems that I am always left without the caps:(

I'd choose the black and white and use them for my daughter's markers in hopes that I wouldn't have to continually search to match up markers and caps.

Thanks!

My 3yr. old hates crayons-they won't write on her. I don't care which one I get, I just feel like my life would be a whole lot easier with this simple little contraption!!!

Brooke said...

I'd love it in black. We need it because between 3 kids, these marker tops are always missing.

retc said...

Black. My toddler is constantly stealing my marker tops.

retc said...

I gave you a thumbs up on stumble upon.

evildoersmuffs@hotmail.com said...

Wow - I never even knew that these existed. A great idea. My kids are always losing the tips of their markers. Buying new ones on a monthly basis is kind of getting old & expensive! We'd love the black one in our house.

- Marybeth I. said...

Love the pink and aqua!

Bree said...

I'd love a black pair- my toddler always loses the caps!!

Audra Marie said...

I'd like it in white so the white board markers I use for homeschooling don't dry out when the kids lose the lids! I'm beginning to think it's their master plan to avoid school lol.

Thanks for the chance to win! :)

I would like th black if I win. I need them because I always lose the caps on markers. They dry out and then I have to go buy more. garrettsambo@aol.com.

zoe hunter said...

I love the black one :)

PEMom said...

I'd choose the black. As a teacher my supplies are constantly being loaned out to students. It would be nice to have just one set of markers to use that wasn't dried up because of little hands that didn't secure the cap back on.

Sylvia P said...

i'd love the clear sparkle one! There's loads of dried up markers that lost there tops along time ago, and i'd like to put the drying to an end~
