Kickstart Your Week

Happy Monday! People are doing such cool things on Kickstarter that I decided to start sharing some of my favorites on a regular basis. (Just because I am pairing down the crud in our house does not mean I'm against shopping or purchasing new things that will be put to good use or add value to our lives.)

First up, Hedge by Cora Neil Design. How gorgeous are these? If you'd like to get me an expensive Christmas present, you can be done with your shopping right now. These planters (check out the wall options too) are awesome.

Next, the Less Mess Happy Mat by Lindsey Laurain. Simplify the mealtime experience for kids and parents with an integrated placemat and plate that self-seals to the table. So smart. "The mats are FDA approved and BPA, PVC, lead and Phthalate-free (so they're safe for growing bodies). They are made from the best quality silicone available and pass the most rigid food safety testing standards (CPSIA Certified). Additionally, Happy Mats are dishwasher and microwave safe."

This is not a new idea. Look at this mat being sold by Toysrus: http://t.toysrus.com/skava/static/product.html?type=TRU_product_us&url=%2Fproduct%2Findex.jsp%3FproductId%3D3359384&domain=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.toysrus.com.
It is not too difficult for a child to grab it, so it doesn't really solve the problem. I personally prefer this solution by Bambinos: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/302613495/1038807465?token=425f7df2
