Do you like to go out to eat at restaurants? What do you do about your little one's eating area? Clean it off with a wet wipe? Sanitizing Wipe? Put napkins down? Restaurant tables are so dirty, and even after cleaning them with a sanitizing wipe I still get the heebie jeebies just thinking about what sorts of germs my little one may be touching. With the help of Whispering Owlets Table Mats you will never have to worry (or be grossed out) again!
Whispering Owlets is an Etsy boutique that specializes in sewing cloth diapers, table mats, nursing covers, and bibs! Based out of Washington, Whispering Owlets was created by Rachael who was inspired by her beautiful little girl!
Whispering Owlets generously sent me a table mat in the Los Muertos print! I fell in love with the concept of these table mats and I couldn't wait to try it out. When it arrived I was so excited to test it out that I had my parents go out to breakfast with me (I received it when I was back home!) just so we could take it for a spin. The table mat comes rolled up so you can easily keep it in your car or diaper bag for "spur of the moment" restaurant stops. The top of the table mat is clear soft plastic which makes it so easy to just wipe up after your kiddo has finished their meal (because you know they've made a big sticky mess), then you can just roll up the mat and take it home!
The back of the table mat is a non skid material that I would say is similar to the liners that you can purchase to put in your kitchen drawers. It is almost "sticky" (not really though) to the touch so moving it while it's on the table is harder, especially if it is little hands that are trying to move it!
The table mats come with taggies that are around the edges and are meant to entertain your little one while they are waiting for their food or if they have already finished before you (or is it just my kid that eats like I'll take it away from him if he doesn't finish in two minutes?).
You're probably wondering, how does it stay on the table aside from the non skid backing? Well my friends, there are two suction cups at the top of the table mat to hold it in place! This will ensure your child not being able to move it even if they get past the non skid backing! Along with the suction cups, the table mat also includes a "weight filled" section at the top that is full of micro beads to add some extra weight on the top of the table mat, along with adding more entertainment. If you so request, Whispering Owlets can make that part clear and add fun colored beads inside so that your child can see them, providing more table top fun!
I am so impressed with the craftsmanship of Whispering Owlets Table Mat and I highly recommend it to any family who goes out to eat a lot. The overall concept is genius and I found myself thinking "why the heck didn't I think of this!?". Whispering Owlets is a fabulous sewer, I couldn't find any flaws in her work and it has held up beautifully in the many times that I have used it! Since receiving my table mat for review, I have also purchased a Mickey Mouse "Hooty Bum" cloth diaper that I am so excited to get in the mail!
