I have an infant toy link attached to my travel bathroom bag. We don’t use them for actual infant toys any longer because we’re out of the infant business, but I am still surprised by the myriad of places I find them useful.
The one on my travel bag allows me to hang the bag on a towel rack or door hook when we travel, so the kids don’t soak it when they wash their hands or brush their teeth. I also find it useful camping, with limited counter space at campground bathrooms. I can also hang it on the bathroom door while I use the potty and not have to leave it unattended elsewhere in a public restroom at campsites.
I use another one on my daughter’s baby doll carrier. Otherwise, the straps constantly slip off her thin shoulders and we have to stop and yank them back up repeatedly. With a link connecting the two sides, not only do the straps not slip, but she can fit the straps into and out of the link all by herself. That means one less thing I have to take care of leaving the house.
