One of the many things I have learned from having young children is that when we do get up the courage to go out to eat it definitely can’t be a fancy place. Having a one year old that likes to throw food on the floor along with all of her toys, crayons and coloring sheets limits our selection of establishments. We have had different types of highchair covers in the past but the Neatnik Saucer is the king of all high chair ‘covers.’ The Neatnik is in a class all by itself, it is far superior to ANYTHING that you have ever seen before. I wasn’t to sure about it when I first received it, but I decided to give it a try and boy was I impressed. There are so many wonderful features to the saucer I don’t know where to start.
We received the Rome which is black on the bottom and white on the top. The black part is the only part that actually touches the highchair itself which has not yet gotten that dirty look to it. The white surface on top is wonderful for your little one to draw his masterpiece. My daughter used the crayons that came with the Saucer as well as the standard restaurant crayons and drew until her little heart was content. When we were ready to eat I took a baby wipe to clean the surface of all the crayola markings which came up with ease.
Like most one year old babies there is nothing neat about a meal. The saucer kept all of the food on her ‘tray.’ I couldn’t believe my eyes when I got up from the table and there was nothing on the floor not a single crumb. I was so excited and actually wasn’t embarrassed leaving the restaurant. Other great features about the Neatnik are the suction cups on the bottom. You simply unfold in the highchair and suction cup the front to the table. No matter how hard she tried she was unable to pull the suction cups off the table. There are also velcro on the sides for your child’s favorite toy or pacifier.
The hardest part about the saucer was learning how to fold it, so I watched the online tutorial and after a few tries I was a pro at fitting it back into the little bag for easy portability. I actually look forward to going out and being able to use it because it makes life so much easier. Last weekend we used it and I counted six people who asked me where they could get one; I actually think one lady wanted me to sell it to her! With the Neatnik Saucer you are now free to eat at the fanciest restaurant in town. Happy dining!!!
One winner will receive a Neatnik Saucer of their own!
