Review: Buckle Buddy – Hungry Monkey #sponsored

BuckleBuddy1Last week we were contacted by Buckle Buddy to see if our 5 year old would like to try it out in exchange for an honest review here on Everything Mommyhood. My daughter has been so excited to use her Buckle Buddy, and it’s super easy to use!

We received the Hungry Monkey, which has a banana that goes to the bottom receiver part of the seat belt, and the adorable monkey that is on the actual seat belt itself. It took me approximately 15 seconds to install. Super simple. The banana just wrapped around the bottom seat belt “receiver.” The monkey has a Velcro wrap that fits around the actual seat belt. Next, all you do is connect the seat belt together to make the monkey and the banana meet together. It’s like a game, to buckle up to feed the monkey!

I love how the Buckle Buddy promotes safety and fun all in one. My 5 year old no longer struggles to get her seat belt fastened, she’s always excited to “feed the hungry monkey.” Safety is always my number one concern with my children, and I’m always trying to think of fun ideas to incorporate into safety.


As you can see my 5 year old loves it!


Buckle Buddy is run by a group of Harvard Business School students with kids’ hearts. Unlike competitors who focus on providing comfort while traveling, Buckle Buddy actually makes it fun for kids to adopt safe and healthy habits. If you have trouble getting your child or a child you care for, to buckle up in the car, I highly recommend giving the Buckle Buddy a try! I’d do anything to keep my children safe in the car, and having them buckled up is my number one priority.

The Buckle Buddy comes in two different choices, you can choose from the Hungry Monkey or the Snack Time Snake, for $19.95.

  1. These ar relly cute for the kids seatbelts. I like that the monkey also has a banana too. Something for the kids snug in their seatbelts

    My son would LOVE the monkey! He loves animals, especially monkeys- but his is still in a car seat so I could save it for a few years. So cute!

  3. What a cute idea! I can see how a child would be more prone to initially make a habit of feeding the monkey vs. putting their seat belt on for safety–but the outcome would be great, to develop a habit of putting their seat belt on.

  4. Lauren Riemer says:

    Such an adorable idea and a great way to encourage safety!

  5. Anything that will help a kid remember to buckle up is a good thing. Cute.

  8. Sherrie C. says:

    Love that kids think they are feeding the monkey a banana while they are actually learning good safety habits. What a great way to get kids to buckle up.

    (Review: Buckle Buddy – Hungry Monkey #sponsored) I sure could have used this for myself on a trip we just got back from to Myrtle Beach, S.C. in the car on my own seatbelt. That car ride was 17 hours long, and that back seatbelt kept digging into my neck, was hurting and very frustrating too!!!!!!

    How cute. what a fun way to encourage safety. Plus kids will love to help buckle themselves in by learning that the monkey wants to “eat” the banana.

  11. Sarah Elyce says:

    I can’t get over how cute this is. Great idea to associate something fun with safety so that kids get into the habit early.
