Pros:

* attractive
* useful / helpful for smaller items
* affordable / not too expensive
* less expensive than a seat protector, altho I haven't used it in the winter.
* probably great for people with babies!

Cons:

* pockets not deep enough, taller sippy cups and items fall out
* does not hang flush with seat
* strap shows on the adult seat
* you can feel the strap when you sit in the adult seat
* child cannot reach contents when in car seat
* some sippy cups do not fit in the cup holders

I guess my biggest concern is that it holds the sippy cups, but why have the sippy cup holder when the child cannot reach the sippy cup? Also, it's frustrating the many of the items, including the sippy cups fall out on occasion. I'm surprised the other reviewers are OK with this. When my 3-yr old gets in the car and I strap him in, either myself or my chid knocks items out of the holder.

Overall, I'd only recommend this to people with babies. Baby toys are smaller and the parent can distribute them to the child.

I was aware of some of the problem areas other people had pointed out and bought it anyway. In some reviews people said that there is no strap on the bottom of the product, so that it dangles and hits their kids' feet. Well, when I opened the package, it most definitely had a strap on the bottom! The bottom strap is the same kind of clip on strap at the top, and since I rarely have passengers, I don't need to worry about somebody snagging the strap when they sit down or anything.

I also own the same sippy cup that's pictured in the cup holder, as well as the car seat I own has two built-in cup holders, so I am not faced with the dilemma of cups falling out.

There is no way a toddler still in a car seat (kids under 4) will be able to reach the bottom two areas under the cup holders closest to the floor. That should be common sense right there. In my situation, with my daughter being almost 2 and still in a car seat, she is not able to reach across to the top compartments unless she wiggles her way out of the car seat straps, which she is good at doing anyway. So I have her favorite toys all stored in the top mesh compartment, and can easily reach them to give them to her while driving. The cup holders on the organizer will probably end up holding snacks or other small accessories like socks and shoes.

Overall, this is a great thing to have for a child who isn't required to be in a car seat anymore. For children 5 and over this is a great way to keep crayons and toys off the floor, if your child can be conditioned to remember to put stuff back in the organizer!

Ordered one and put it in my Honda CRV to collect the number of books and toys and bottles that we take with us anywhere to keep our 21 month old entertained. These items were collecting about the car and making a mess, so this was very useful to keep things tidy. Worked great! The adjustable straps worked well and allowed enough flexibility to make it fit reasonably well behind the passenger seat that backs up to the rear-facing Britax carseat.This area of the backseat is difficult to use for other things due to the size of the carseat anyway - so the organizer makes good use of this "lost" space.

I need to order another one because today I realized I could put this to even better use indoors. I yanked it out of the car and strapped this to the obsolete chalk board side of my daughter's crayola easel. She only uses the dry erase/magnetic side of the double sided easel. This now holds her dry erase markers, eraser, magnetic letters, and magentic animals neatly out of the way and off of the floor. Again, the adjustable straps allowed for a snug fit. - Happy Mommy

This is a must have in you car when you have little ones. It prevents things from being tossed around everywhere. Everything I need for my infant fits perfectly inside the pockets and it does not get in the way of the back seat passenger that may have to sit behind it. It's great!

This has come in handy. But the truck I have to put it in doesn't have an adjustable headrest, so it is a tight fit over the built in headrest (and sometimes pops off).

I have a Rav4 and it works just fine. I bought it for storage and also to protect my seats from my 3 year old. So far it's doing a good job.

While the concept of this organizer is great, I find that it's not the best quality, and the lower strap wasn't long enough to reach around my seat (I also didn't want to have to feel the strap against my back while driving). It just wasn't for me, and certainly wasn't worth the price and so we returned it.

I'm sure this would be a good organizer...if it would actually attach to the carseat. I drive a Ford Expedition, and the seat is all one piece, meaning I can't lift up the headrest to fit the strap onto the seat. The upper strap is about an inch too short and the lower strap is at least a few inches too short. Not sure at this point if it's worth the trouble to send back. If I do keep this, I'll have to buy some elastic and sew it onto both straps. I bought 2 of these, so that's 4 straps I would need to sew...I so don't have time for this with 2 small kids. As is, this product is worthless since I can't attach it to my seat. My seat itself is not that big. I know I can't be the only one in America with an SUV, so I wish Munchkin would have had the good sense to make the adjustable straps a little bit longer...can you tell I'm annoyed??!!

It looks like it would work, and is the size I was looking for, but I got a nasty surprise when taking it out of the box.

This thing smells like rotting fish and hate.

We soaked it in dish soap and hot water for awhile - NOPE.

Ran it through the washing machine - NICE TRY, BUDDY.

Liberally doused it in all purpose cleaner and hung it up to dry - HAHAHAHAHA, NO.

Did Cthulhu buy out Munchkin? Why does this reek so bad?

Still on the lookout for an organizer that I can use in the car.

It doesn't work if you drive an SVU or a sedan especially with a car seat in the back. The pockets are very shallow so it doesn't hold much. I bought two of them thinking it would be a great idea to organize all the books I have in the car, but it can only hold two books max. If you put more than one item in the lower pocket, they drag the organize downward so it blocks the back seat entry way. I would not recommend this item.
