Editor's Notes

June 11, 2020:

When you’ve got one or more little ones, you’re surely looking for products that can make your life easier and save you some time. These high chair mats fit the bill, since they’re often easier to clean up than removing spills or stains from your hard floor or your carpet, and many come in fun designs your little one is sure to enjoy. In this update, we added in the Paw Legend Washable, which features a large 53-inch-square size and four grippy dots to keep it from sliding or bunching up underneath your high chair. Speaking of fun designs, you can choose from among prints with friendly jungle animals, colorful dinosaurs, or interlocking diamonds. If you’re not into bright or busy patterns, there’s also a neutral solid gray available. For an all-inclusive set that keeps both the floor and your baby clean, look to the O’ranch Anti Slip, which comes with a 51-square inch mat as well as a waterproof, long-sleeved smock. When mealtime is done, just wipe both down and get on with your day. Both components come packaged in a nice gift box, so it makes for a nice shower or new baby present.

If you don’t want to detract from your kitchen decor, look to the newly added clear vinyl Nuby Protector, which features a round shape that measures 50 inches in diameter, and it folds up neatly for compact storage. Not only is it a budget-friendly choice, but it also comes with a money-back satisfaction guarantee. For another round-shaped choice, but not a clear one, look to the newly added Prince Lionheart Catchall, which is made of durable laminated cotton along with a non-skid bottom layer. Since it’s so easy to remove spills from, this one makes for a convenient choice in a kitchen as well as a craft room where little ones are busy at work with their paints or other art supplies. We also added in the Neat Solutions Floor Toppers, which is the perfect solution for anyone who wants to spend as little time on cleanup as possible. This disposable choice can just be thrown away with the food it has collected. Even if you have a reusable model for your home, this choice would come in handy for trips to grandma’s or a playgroup. It comes in a pack of two, and you can choose between fun Mickey Mouse and Sesame Street designs.
