Introducing EZPZ Mats…
First off, let me just say that I have the most adorable package opener there ever was!
I was really excited to try these mats out and see if they truly stuck to the table. They are made of 100% silicone that is BPA, BPS, PVC, and phthalate free! Because it is made of silicone, it will not slide on table surfaces (assuming the surface is smooth and dust-free). Do you even know how many globs of yogurt and spaghetti sauce I’ve cleaned off of our walls and floor?! No, I guess you don’t, because your name isn’t Jaxson and you are not an 18-month old toddler tornado. 😉
I can appreciate the quality of the zip bags that they come in – they are really smooth and feels really luxurious. I would be really impressed if I received this as a baby shower gift – it oozes quality. The cute food graphics and illustrations on the outside are also a really nice touch.
Once I took the mats out of their packaging, I placed them on the table to see if the suction function was adequate. AND. IT. IS. I tugged, I pulled, I pinched the material and tried to mimic my toddler’s heavy hands. The only way to release the suction is to pull up on the edges (which given the dexterity my little one currently has, will be much more difficult for him to succeed painting the walls and floor in food).
Table Eating With EZPZ
To test out the Happy Mat & Mini Mat, I gave my 18-month-old (Jax) and 12-month-old (Ben) some Greek yogurt, Cheerios, and strawberries. Ben is not my little one, but I nanny for him :)So if you see another random baby hand, that’s Ben 😉
The boys TRIED, I carefully watched. I call these two the ‘Trouble Twins’ because they are always getting into some kind of mischief together. And if there is ANYONE that could figure out how to flip these mats – it would be the Trouble Twins!
They couldn’t flip these mats.
Super impressed mom right here.

Hallejujah! This mama loves easy-to-clean products, especially those that can stand a little dishwasher action. In fact, all EZPZ products are dishwasher, microwave, and oven safe to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
I hand washed these before using them because I wasn’t ready to run a load through my dishwasher and because I was so excited to give them a go, but I did place them in the dishwasher that afternoon to test out their durability. They handled my washer just fine. I did space them out a bit, as recommended by their washing instructions, to give adequate room for cleaning.
Four weeks later, and I can certainly say these are the real deal. And when I say real deal, they aren’t just high quality, EZPZ is the original creator of the all-in-one placement and plates/bowls.
The Happy Mat & Mini Mat are high quality, easy-to-clean, and completely functional. I am completely impressed with their construction, concept, design, and suction feature. We love them! We use them for every meal now. Because we aren’t so focused on keeping a bowl or plate on the table and off the floor, we can focus more on teaching the boys to eat with utensils.
