Summer Infant Tiny Diner

Where would we be without this meal time miracle?

It seems quite simple - the Tiny Diner is essentially a rubbery feeling place mat with little suction cups on the bottom.

Where it becomes genius is the crumb catching tray that hangs off the edge and its ability to roll up and fit the entire mat inside that little tray.

We started using these at home with with a Stokke Tripp Trapp which does not have an actual tray.  The grippy surface kept plates and bowls from falling off the table and it wipes down quite easily.  Just be sure to moisten the suction cups for maximum table grip.

The Tiny Diner is also great for airplane travel with a baby who will inevitably be playing with the tray table.  We popped it on over that gross tray table, and it became a nice play and snack surface.

It comes in 3 cute colors - blue, pink and gender neutral green. The Tiny Diner is PVC, latex and BPA free as well.  Need we say more?
