The Neatnik Saucer
***CLOSED!!!***

                    What is it!?#@!?


A high chair cover that will make your life so much more simpler! Created by: Cookie Centracco, Co-Pres, Coulson's Crib, LLC

                             The floor test! 


What would've went in the floor......







                     The review

Isn't it so embarrassing when you go out with your infant (who is also learning to self feed..) and they make a god awful mess in the floor. Close your eyes.. now picture me all bent over under the table cleaning (or attempting to..) clean it all up. I have been a server. I have been THAT server/waitress. You been at work 9 or 10 hours.. you just swept up your section, your ready to go.. its say.. 8pm? and here comes someone like me (pre-me now..) two young kids in tow. *Groan!* *sigh!* Even worse, they usually do not tip very good either. Now, Devonny - she may be messy but at least I attempt to clean it up, and we tip more because of the under-table mess.  Ha ha!
But I was amazed with this Neatnik saucer, she was only able to fling a few french fries. Three to be exact .. behind her. How she managed that, I don't know. But when she is done eating she takes her arm and swishes it side to side across the tray (table .. whatever) slinging whatever was on tray into the floor as if to say.. OK! I'm all finished now! She got so frustrated at Burger King the other night when she couldn't do it, it was so amusing.
Ten reasons I like this thing, and 6 I don't.
Lets start with why I do.



           The Pros

#1 - Cute! Comes in many different styles and colors..
#2 - Works .. like a freekin charm!
#3 - Minimizes a humongous mess and an extra point on this note because it catches the food she drops in her lap that falls in the floor too.
#4 - Has a little "lip" around the edges to catch food from sliding off. NEAT!
#5 - Clean surface for them to eat off of.
#6 - Saves embarrassment from a huge mess in the floor.
#7 - Has a toy ring Velcro to hang things on to entertain baby that baby cant throw in the floor - but they might get food on them. Eh....
#8 - Keeps baby off germy high chairs completely. You know they never wipe those things down good, and if your baby is anything like Devonny, they num num all over that nasty thing.
# 9 -  Has suction cups that suck to the table to keep it from sliding around.
#10 - Folds up small & has a matching carry bag with a loop handle to carry it and baby easier!



           The Cons
#1 - You have to clean it up before you can put it back in its bag, to leave with it. Its so big, you don't want to walk out with it wide open and food smeared all over it. Its not as if restaurants have a hose at the front door to spray your Neatnik off with I recommend having baby wipes to wipe it off with.

#2 - Also its quite hard to fold back up. I am impatient and get extremely frustrated when I cannot do something. I still haven't figured out how to fold this up. Thank god the hubby has (Yes, I have practiced and it comes with instructions.. that are kinda hard to understand (for me, anyway) ... Guess I should have watched the use & fold demo video. I never read directions. If I were a man, I'd be the one who doesn't stop & ask when lost.

#3 - If you forget to really clean it when you get home and leave it in the car, it could get really REALLY gross and/or make your car stink.

#4 - Doesn't fit all high chairs, the first restaurant I took it to was Taco Bell who had really old metal highchairs, that sat a good ways under the table and the Neatnik's saucer rim wasnt level with the table enough  - and wouldn't work because the food would have just slid in her lap, plus it looked really stupid.I scolded myself for forgetting to take a picture of that.. oops. When we got to Burger King I noticed the high chair wasn't level with the table either, and thought it would be a problem, but it wasn't because of how much room the leg area seat has to go downwards.

#5 - The final issue was threading her legs through the holes. The holes aren't big (which is good, because the food would end up in the floor). She isn't the most cooperative, so it took one person holding her while the other pulled her legs through to get her in it.

#6 - They sell for 32.95. Far more than I would be willing to pay for one.

Overall though, I still give it an A , even with the cons. The pro's outweigh them by far if you ask me.





PS. Did I mention they ALSO SELL BIBS AND NAPSACKS?
