This portable and easy-to-clean placemat is great for babies on the go. It has a built-in scoop to catch the mess, which is especially useful when it comes to spilled liquids, while the suction cups help to keep the mat in place. It's made of durable 100% waterproof material that is free of latex, PVC, phthalates and BPA. It rolls up simply for easy travel and comes in a handful of bright colors with a beautiful design of the "Hey Diddle Diddle" nursery rhyme. A Mickey Mouse design is also available for those who enjoy Disney characters.

And, when it comes to germ prevention, this is great for eating out with baby. After all, who knows what kinds of things lurk on restaurant table surfaces?


The most commonly cited likes for this product are:
  • Easy to clean
  • Easy to carry
  • Helps keep mess down to a minimum


User reviews frequently note these disadvantages:
  • Suction cups don't work on all surfaces and for strong and curious babies
