Paladone Henry Car Bin
Advantages: Handy, plenty of space, inexpensive, Henry's smiling face
I got this Henry Car Bin for Christmas last year, it was a stocking filler from my boyfriend which has proven to be a very useful gift.
I love my car and try to keep it as clean as possible on the outside, but I don't particularly like cleaning the inside of it so anything which can help me keep it tidy is a good thing.
The car bin is modelled on the Numatic Henry vacuum cleaners and comes in the traditional red and black, with Henry's instantly recognisable smiling face on it. I'm not exactly sure what material it is made from, but I would guess nylon as it is very similar to light weight rain jackets.
It is a pop up bin which can be folded down to a smaller size when not in use to make storage easier.
When popped up the bin is just under 30 cm in height and about 20 cm in diameter. in it's folded state it is roughly 3 cm tall but still has the same diameter.
The bin has some straps which you can use for attaching it to various parts of your car, these have velcro tabs on them so you can either use the velcro to stick to the upholstery of the car or attach the straps together so that you can hook them over something.
I push the straps around the posts on the headrest of my passenger seat so that Henry is in the back of the car. I find this to be the best spot to quickly throw rubbish such as receipts and sweet wrappers into it from the driver's seat. This means that instead of litter ending up in the ash tray, in the footwells or door bins it all goes into one place and I can just take it out and empty it into the wheelie bin when he starts getting full up.
Should for some reason you want to pack your Henry car bin away, as mentioned he does fold up to quite a compact size for storage. Once you have squished it down there are some shorter velcro straps attached to the bottom of the bin on the inside these stick to velcro on the outside bottom and keep the bin in it's folded up state. It is then small enough to fit inside most glove boxes, or be placed under one of the front seats when not in use.
I think the great thing about this bin is that it can be used in other places as well as in the car. It could could be used as a waste paper basket underneath a desk (although it might get full quite quickly) or in a kids' room to keep bits and bobs in.
With Christmas fast approaching, I think the Henry car bin makes a great stocking filler or Secret Santa present at a reasonable £4.99 from play.com
Summary: I'd be lost without my car tidy
