KOVOT Gamer Chip and Dip Dish (Black/White) is a Must-Buy!


Do you have family members or friends that love Video Games? If so, this product is a real Must-Buy! The KOVOT Gamer Chip and Dip Dish is a new family favorite in our house! I love that it is the perfect size for two different types of chips and then dip fits nicely in the middle. My son loves that it looks like a Video Game Controller and it really is just too cool! It is easy to clean (although it it recommended to be hand washed) and is just the perfect size! It is available in Black or White and would make a great gift this Valentine’s Day or any other occasion!
