Messy Me make wipe clean products for babies and toddlers in a range of stylish prints and useful products. They asked if I’d review one of their products and I chose The Messy Mat in Olive Grey, I love the grey and white star print. As the name suggests it’s a mat that’s used in places that will get messy, I’ve put this one under the children’s table in our living room. We regularly have snacks here and do craft sessions but for messier things that might ruin the carpet we use the kitchen table so the living room stays cleaner.

With the mat underneath I thought I’d let Evan have some soup in the living room, I didn’t really consider that he would then be very close to his toys – poor Mickey got a bath in tomato soup! The mat did it’s job and the soup was cleaned up easily from the wipe clean fabric. We also recently had our very first mince pie of the season and it turns out that Evan really likes them! Bob did the clearing up for me, scavenging under the table for any crumbs he could find. Normally I’d have to hoover up after a snack like that but again the Messy Mat (and Bob!) made sure the crumbs didn’t reach the carpet.


The size of it is perfect for under our little table or under a highchair, any bigger and it would be a trip hazard. I just leave it under the table but it does fold quite small so you could just as easily get it out each mealtime or use it when you’re out and about.

If you have a baby or a toddler then you need things that’ll make cleaning up after them easier and that you don’t mind looking at for potentially a few years, until you know your house is safe! I really like Messy Me products and think you will too, to view their collection of products click here.
