I bought another Crocodile Creek placemat was on special. The artwork was beautiful and my 2.5yo loves it (it was animals on the world map). I was looking for a placemat that was educational for my child to talk about and to protect my wooden dining table as my little one transitioned out of high chair. I have been using the placemat for few months now. I think this product is visually appealing but not functional for my family. It feels like the cover of a clear file folder. If bent sharply, it leaves a dent and it does not lay flat on the table. My excited child did this on the first day we received it when she was carrying it around. The placemat is thin and has a matte finish so easy to wipe clean, but does nothing to protect my table. If placed on top of table cloth, can slide around. If you are considering it for an other child who is very careful, then this could be an option. For toddlers, I wouldn't recommend it, I would go for something silicone based or have some cushion to it to protect the table surface.
Excellent. Products top quality. Definitely use this company again.
