I totally love this idea, I hated to give this 4 stars, I hope this doesn't prevent you from buying it, this is worth getting but I want you to know why I gave it 4 stars. First, it doesn't fit on the typical highchair tray, it is big. It is good for my house where my granddaughter eats at the coffee table and is constantly knocking the bowl/plate off the table (so the dogs eat everything), making this placemat totally ideal. My daughter gave it back to me though because she could not use it at her house with the highchair. It is sturdy, well made, and so cute, I love it!
love this placemat.. it's adorable. It has 3 sections -- two small "wheels" and the main car part. My little one's face lights up when he sees me carrying it over to him. He has no problems picking up food in this. The only reason I downgraded 1 star is that he can move it very easily; it doesn't really stay put on the table. So, we still have to make sure he doesn't fling it on the floor or push it across the table. our table is nothing overly slippery or anything; just a painted wood table.
Love this mat to use at home and on the go with my 9 month old. It's so nice to have at restaurants to keep him from eating off of the dirty table or dropping dishes that can break. He loves the shapes and can easily pick up his food. I love that it is easily cleaned in the dishwasher and folds up in his diaper bag. My only complaint is that it does not stick to most surfaces, and he can already pick it up easily which makes for a fun game when he's fussy and hungry.
