The webstore Iddy Biddy Boo, started and run by the lovely Rochelle, is a goldmine of gorgeous products for kids. The newest creation to hit the shop are Kids Placemats and Coasters designed by Rochelle and made right here in Australia.
When I first saw these beauties, I thought ‘what an original and brilliant idea!’ Then I realised they were perfect for my daughter. Upon receiving the ‘Learning Colours’ placemat pictured above, our whole family was in awe and in love. In awe because the quality is top notch and in love because it’s really quite delectable in person. My daughter was absolutely cheering for the matching coaster – ‘just like Mummy and Daddy’ were her words.
The concept is simple but I don’t think I’ve ever seen placemats designed specifically to entice children to eat at the dinner table AND as a learning tool. All placemats feature a striking design, crafted to encourage kiddies to spot the animal or learn their colours or numbers. Each placemat design is also available in a personalised version so you can put your child’s name on the mat if you choose. Ingenious!
Manufactured with only high quality materials and featuring a cork backing and heat resistant top glaze, they will last through many messy meals. To snap up some placemats and coaster sets for your little ones, go to Iddy Biddy Boo. They are priced from $13 plus postage and are nicely sized at 21.5cm x 29cm. Each placemat is made to order so allow 10-15 days for delivery.
