What Prius Owners Are Saying

"The Car Cubby really is the bomb. My wife keeps her purse there, where it is handy but out of sight. I was surprised to find it’s also big enough to hold my photo gear bag so my camera is always handy (but not visible) and not relegated to the back seat and out of reach."

   - Larry, Lone Tree, CO

"It works great for holding receipts and other stuff that I don't want to get lost in the depths of the console."

   - Paul, Honolulu, HI

"The Car Cubby is a remarkably simple solution to increasing the storage capacity for small items in the Prius. I keep my sunglasses, employee ID page and anything else I need to have at arms length in it.

I used to keep these items in the cup holders but now I can use them to hold cups! The material is sufficiently rigid so that items don’t fall out of it but supple enough so that it fits easily (and with perfect precision) into place. Thanks for creating this!"

   - Gordon, Petaluma, CA

"I just love my Car Cubby! It’s the perfect place for my purse, as it keeps it nearby, especially when I have a passenger."

   - Donna, Plymouth, MA

"Wow! I ordered my Car Cubby Saturday morning, and it arrived Monday after lunch!"

   - Liz, Evanston, IL
