Dig In!

Looking for a fun way to get your pickiest eater to dig his or her veggies? These colorful placemats transform your little one's place setting into a creative construction site or an an enchanted garden where every meal is spent breaking new ground. Junior architects will look forward to shoveling up piles of peas, stacks of carrots, mounds of tomatoes, and more, all while building healthy eating habits. And with the help of her fairy friends, your little sprout will look forward to harvesting the day's crop. Plus, as she tends her very own garden patch she'll learn about the kinds of good eating habits that will help her grow up healthy and strong. These placemats also encourage children to get involved in meal prep by including shaded, silhouetted spots for his forklift, bulldozer and pusher utensils or her bite-sized rake, trowel and hoe (sold individually). And since they're both made of durable polypropylene, any mess left behind can be wiped away with ease. Made in USA. Sold separately.

            I purchased this item as a gift for my nephew. Although he hasn't used it yet, it certainly seems to be durable and child friendly as I would hope it would be. The price for this item is somewhat reasonable, but the cost of the others is a little outrageous. I would suggest the seller create a 3 piece combination pack that includes utensils, plate, and placemat for a discounted price. The whole set, with shipping, cost me about $50.00 and I paid it because I had not seen anything like it, however I would have been more apt to buy more than one if the set of three pieces could be sold for under $30.00 including shipping.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Arrived very quickly.

                Great placemat! It has been used as a frisbee, pulled and bended and it's indestructible. My son loves the design and it is perfect with his new Constructive Eating plate and utensils.

                  I bought these to go with the cutlery and plates, but I use them for snacktime too. They make cleanup a breeze... especially for my 18 month old son! He is a messy eater, but the placemat helps cut clean up time down to a minute. I pick up the mat, dump the mess, and clean it with a soapy sponge. Super easy and my 3 year old daughter loves the designs on her mat. We make meal time more interesting by asking her about what she sees on the mat (like how many pumpkins do you see or where are the houses).

                      I bought the whole set (placemat, plate, utensils) as a birthday gift for my niece who was turning 2. She loves eating from it and talking about what she sees on the placemat.
                      It's a little on the pricey side but for it's uniqueness I decided to give it a go. Once it arrived I was surprised by how sturdy everything is. So, overall, I would recommend this for a young child who is learning how to use utensils (or making meals last longer by adding enrichment).

                        My son has asked for peas at each meal due to the pile of peas on the construction place-mat.

                        I also love that it is made in the "little" country South of Canada. I tried to purchase at least one present made in USA for each person on my gift list.
