Featured Friday: Table Toppers {Giveaway}

February 24, 2012 | By More

Featured Friday is a series dedicated to products, people and places that I think everyone should know about.

We go out to eat quite a bit and ever since Caden could sit in the highchair I’ve been trying to find a way to protect him from restaurant germs. No, I’m not a germ-a-phob but the thought of how many people touch restaurant tables and then seeing my son chew on the side of it makes me cringe. When he first started sitting in the highchair I would just wipe the table down with an anti-bacterial wipe, he really couldn’t reach the table anyways. But as he got older and started touching more things I knew I needed something.

I saw Summer Infant Tiny Dinner Mat at Babies R Us and thought it would be great for going out to eat.

I was wrong. It’s rubber, bulky and the suction cups never worked, not to mention the food catcher always got in the way of the highchair and Caden would ripe it off and chew on it. Long story short it sucked.

Then I came across Table Toppers.  I LOVE these things! You can find them at Babies R Us, Toys R Us and Target.

First off they are disposable which I love. You peel off the edges and literally stick it on the table, so it’s flat. And I even stick it over the edge, in case CK ends up chewing or licking the table. I’ve used these on the wooden tables to outdoor patios (you know the one with the holes).

They work on everything. Caden doesn’t ripe them off and it works great for putting his food and toys right on the table. Which keeps him occupied, germ free and the waitress happy because when your done you take it off and throw it away.  This is a great addition to Bibsters. As you can tell I’m all about convenience when going out to eat or traveling and these both are permanently in my diaper bag.

I love these so much that I want to give one away to you. (I think the last time I did a giveaway was way back when we were traveling in Florida with the Dog water Bowl. Yikes, it’s been way too long.)

    I liked your page on facebook and I L.O.V.E Chipotle. When D was one week old our ceiling caved in in our kitchen with tons of mold and we immediately vacated to let the construction workers take care of the (epic) problem. My mom was in town from WA(we live in AZ) and she took us out to Chipolte. So our baby boy was introduced to the restaraunt fairly early : ).

    Although I love trying new restaurants, the local Mexican place is easily our favorite spot. I’d love to use these little place mats now that h I’d getting old enough to sit at the table.

    These mats look like a great idea! Good to know about the Summer Infant mats–I had registered for them and got one as a gift, but it has not been opened yet–I may still be able to exchange it, as we are coming up to the point of table food soon!
    I’d say my favorite restaurant is an amazing seafood place we ate at while vacationing in Vernazza, Italy. Gorgeous views of the Mediterranean, sea breezes, and the freshest seafood and home made pasta! Great memories.
