Wow! Am I ever impressed with this product! In my experience, suction bowls have been a total and complete waste of my money. They work for 3.5 seconds before the suction releases and bowl is victoriously tossed to the floor, or simply as far as possible. I am a firm believer in touching food and making a big ol’ mess to learn how to eat sometimes the disaster is just a little much. The game of “I toss and Mama picks up” also gets old really, really quickly.
This little number is a placemat and a dish all in one! The suction is unbelievable. The only way my little one has figured out how to move it, is to peel up one of the corners. Otherwise, it has stayed in place FOR THE ENTIRE MEAL. ON MULTIPLE OCCASIONS!!!
Pros: great suction, comes in a divided plate version or bowl version, easily fits in the dishwasher and is big so it catches a lot of mess.
Cons: Cost. It is expensive. It may not fit on the tray of a highchair because it is meant to be used at a table. Takes ++ surface area to store flat. It’s big.
Available at West Coast Kids for $29.99. The bowl version is $23.99.
Let me know what you think if you try it.
