Bought this for my 8 and a half month old. It is handy when we go out to a restaurant to eat however depending on the height of the high chair the scoop part can be in the way. It does suction to the table surface pretty well.
The instruction says to not leave it in the rolled up position for a prolonged period of time, which I understand is to prevent the mat from permanent curving. However I have many times left it at home because I don't have it in my diaper bag all the time.

I have two of these already. While my baby was going through baby led weaning, this was perfect for the times we ate out at restaurants. He didn't have to eat off a dirty table and the little catch-all at the bottom helped prevent an otherwise massive mess underneath his high chair. My only qualm would be the suction cups because he likes to pull the mat up. But I don't think that can be avoided!

I really like this product. It has helped keep my table and floors so much cleaner. An added bonus is that it keeps plastic bowls from sliding when my toddler is scooping food from it. He used to have to chase the bowl around the table with the spoon but now it stays put on the place mat. It sticks very well to my wooden table and is easily cleaned with a quick scrub and rinse at the kitchen sink.

Suction cups not all that suck-y and the colour is kind of livid. Also, not dishwasher safe (at least, it doesn't seem to be recommended). Other than that it works okay, provides a clean surface for the baby to eat from when we're out and about and rolls up and stores fine. I also have an oogaa silicone placemat which works just as well for us and is dishwasher safe.

I had one of these for my older son, now three, and LOVED it. Rolls compactly for travel, the trough catches the getaway bits, suction cupped securely to any flat surface and we even loved the graphics (cow jumping over the moon, dish running away with spoon, yadda yadda). Great for restaurants -- I was a waitress for years and I don't trust the cleanliness of the tables. I scoured the internet to find two more for my now 13 mo. old twins. These ones are just not quite the same. The material is quite stiff, and while the trough is still effective, the suction cups are not. The twins peel these up off the table, making the mess even bigger (if that's possible). I hoped that they would become more supple with use, but it doesn't look good. Funny how a small thing makes a huge difference. If you see these in person, check the pliability -- if they're soft, I endorse them highly. If they are stiff, I don't.
