With great solutions for portable eating, travelling with your kids just got a whole lot easier
Tidy Tot Tray
Even when you securely prop your child into a comfy high chair, some how they still manage to get bits of food squished down the sides for you to clean. Not to mention the surrounding floor area that often looks like a splattered war zone. The tidy tot tray was invented by a parent who felt that pain and dreamt of stress free baby eating with minimal food waste. Designed like a pop out tray, tidy tot comprises of a large tray and bib set that fits snug around your baby.
It attaches to their high chair or table using suction caps making it easy to take on and off. The best part of the tidy tot design is that the accompanying full sleeved bib attaches to the front of the tray with easy Velcro fasteners. That food’s not sneaking off anywhere. Easy to squish down into its own washable bag, the tray is easy to wipe clean with bibs that can be machine washed. Perfect for on the go.
