Apron, Tunic & Oilcloth Review – The Ladybirds’ Adventures

Apron, Tunic & Oilcloth Review – The Ladybirds’ Adventures

The apron is designed for children aged 3 – 5 and is a really good fit for my eldest. She has only just turned 5 and is average height and weight. I suspect it will fit her for a while yet. It wipes clean well and the website says it can be machine washed occasionally (I’ve not tried this though).

This tunic style bib is suitable for children approximately aged 1 – 3 years. My youngest is just 2 years but bear in mind she is only 22 lbs (10 kg) and 77 cm tall. She currently wears clothes that are 9–12 months old. This tunic does fit her as you can see in these photos and there is plenty of room for growth. I love the velcro fastening that is tucked away at the back. The tunic allows my toddler to move freely but protects her clothing. Obviously, as there are no sleeves it won’t totally stop her getting wet. It does allow her to move easier and stops her from getting too hot in this weather though. I find that rolling her sleeves up does a good job of keeping her clothes clean.

We have also used the oilcloth fabric in the garden on a number of occasions. We’ve used it for a picnic rug and as a mat for messy play like play dough. My girls love play dough.

All three products were easy to wipe clean afterwards and also to dry. We love how lightweight, soft and flexible the oilcloth that messy me uses is. I love the designs too and I know that we will be using these aprons a lot for messy play, baking and painting in the future. The oilcloth fabric is now on our dining table and getting a lot of use. It’s still in perfect condition too.

Splash Mat Review – Sophella

Splash Mat Review – Sophella

The Splashmat made a perfect job out of keeping our carpet clean and dry whilst she was rolling around playing in her bubbles; and turned into what was going to be an outdoor activity, into a perfectly clean and tidy indoor activity without mess!  Soon she discovered how much mess she could make with the bubbles, but that still didn’t make a mucky of my carpet!

I absolutely love our Messy Me Splashmat, and I think it is a great accessory to have for any kind of crafts, feeding times etc. It is so versatile and allows you to keep floors, surfaces and even your garden clean no matter what your kids are doing! The oil cloth material will keep whatever’s underneath dry (oh – and the patterns available are super cute!)

Grey Splash Mat Review – Em&Me

Grey Splash Mat Review – Em&Me

“…The Messy Mat we were sent is grey with a lovely star print on it. This fits in so well with our other grey accessories in our home and is just gorgeous. It folds away quite small so is easy to tidy away when finished. We just store ours on the breakfast bar for now as we have it out every single day. The Messy Mat can also be placed underneath the highchair to catch any food that Emily drops. Her latest game is to tip her bowl of (dry) cheerios out straight over the side of the high chair and watch them fall. However, now I can just scoop them back up into her bowl knowing that the mat is clean and fine for her to eat off.

The Messy Mat really has become a staple item in our home. We use it every single day whether for messy play or using as an easy clean up under Emily’s high chair. I know we will use it well into the future too as I imagine it would make a really good sized table cloth to protect surfaces for craft activities when she is older. I think the mat would make a perfect base for play dough as it would be easy to clean up and far less likely to get stuck in the carpet. You really could use this in many different ways so every home should have one!”

Splash Mat and Tunic Review – Mommy & Mabel

Splash Mat and Tunic Review – Mommy & Mabel

“…All wipe clean and are available in gorgeous colours and designs, meaning – hey presto – our home can still look lovely even with Mabel’s mightiest attempts to create mess.

Messy Me’s secret is in its oilcloth, which feels incredibly soft, so is more comfortable for babies and toddlers and drapes well, meaning it catches all those pesky flying food particles.  It also has a 100% cotton base for added breathability and a lovely gloss finish, which is harder wearing and resistant to most stains.

Mabel is currently sporting her own Messy Tunic bib in a grey star design (£9.50), which perfectly matches the Messy Mat (£24) splashmat sitting under her highchair – as well as the rest of our kitchen and living room.  The muted grey looks great in our home and the functionality of both products means that while mealtimes aren’t quite mess-free, they are definitely mess-a-whole-lot-less.

Our house is forever evolving and with Mabel now its star occupier, we are finding ways to make it a home we can all grow, live and love in.  It’s small differences and products like Messy Me that help along this journey”

Tunic Bib – Red Stars

Tunic Bib – Red Stars

“it’s super cute, oilcloth, easy to clean and can be used for mealtimes and messy play. It’s my absolute favourite we even take it to our weekly playgroup because my OCD won’t allow myself or my child to touch the ones at playgroup…”  Raga @parentinginbritain

Splash Mat Review – Navy Stars

Splash Mat Review – Navy Stars

“…a godsend; no more scrubbing the floors to remove crusty purée and yogurt, you just give the mat a wipe with a damp cloth and voila the mess has gone!  I chose the Navy Stars design which has white stars on a navy background and is very pretty.  Measuring at 90 x 120cms it is large enough to protect your floor from food flingage but small enough that it can be easily folded and stored away in a drawer or if you are travelling somewhere…

In my opinion I think that the Messy Mat is something really worth having, it saves so much time tidying up after they have eaten as no need to take the vacuum out to hoover up the crumbs, just shake the mat into your bin and give it a wipe with a damp cloth.  Also any spillages on the mat will just disappear with a quick wipe.  It folds up well so I just chuck it into my changing mat when we are visiting the grandparents as no-one wants rice cakes, fruit, veg, etc trampled into their carpet/rug.

Ikea High Chair Cushion – Navy Stars

Ikea High Chair Cushion – Navy Stars

“…a gorgeous navy blue insert covered in white stars.  It is so pretty, I love the colour of it.  The fabric is oilcloth, which is wipe clean so it’s easy to clean up after a messy dinner (of which we have plenty!) I love the design of the cushion.  It’s not just a back and two sides, it also has a bottom for Henry to sit on.  I think this is nice because it gives his bottom a little padding, as well as his back.

The size of the cushion is perfect – it’s big enough to keep him safely cocooned in his seat, but small enough that he’s not squished.  I think this is the perfect insert for growing babies – with Alfie he only used the IKEA insert for about a month as he was so big but I was always worried he was uncomfortable!  Henry is a bit smaller but I can see this insert lasting him until he outgrows the highchair!

The one thing I hated about the IKEA insert is how hard it is to clean.  Both my kids are VERY messy when it comes to eating, which has never bothered me, I’m happy to see them enjoy their food. But it does mean the highchair gets covered in food, and with the IKEA insert being cotton fabric, it basically needs to go in the washing machine when it’s dirty.  I had two, but there were still times that we had no insert to use because the cover was in the wash.

The Messy Me insert has been a game changer in that respect.  I can just wipe it down with a damp cloth or baby wipe, and it’s spotlessly clean again.  Even tough stains have been no match for the messy me insert!  You do have to be careful with some foods. Whilst the oilcloth is pretty tough, it’s not foolproof – tomato, black/blueberries and carrot have been known to stain if you’re not quick enough with cleaning.  A few of our white stars are now a faint shade of orange, however it’s not really noticeable and it doesn’t affect the use or look of the insert at all.

Overall, we love the Messy Me highchair insert. It does the job more than well, is comfortable and easy to clean and also looks great. I would highly recommend this product for babies who are weaning, and beyond!”

Clutch Bag Review

Clutch Bag Review

Made of oil cloth it’s easy to clean and the perfect size. It fits travel wipes, a couple of nappies and there’s still space for a dummy, nappy cream or my current favourite – teething gel!

I love that it’s so neat and compact, now that Jasmine is 9 months old we brought a stroller it’s it’s much easier for nipping out to the shops or holidays away as it folds so small, the new stroller has a much smaller compartment underneath, so my regular nappy bag won’t fit – so the nappy clutch is perfect!

It also has a matching changing mat because, let’s face it, public changing tables aren’t the most hygienic. They come in various patterns. I chose ‘wild rose’ as I thought it was classic, pretty and matched the buggy. I love that it has a velcro fastener as I can open and close it with one hand whilst sorting Jasmine with the other.

I’d really recommend getting a nappy clutch for all of these reasons it a perfect little gem I’d never have thought to purchase before I had Jasmine but post Jasmine it makes my day a little bit easier!

Tunic Bib Review

Tunic Bib Review

As they were both happy to wear the bibs, we now use them at every meal time. It’s fab for wiping up spilt milk each morning, Oscar likes to drink from his bowl! I can wipe clean everything from beans to yogurt, this is one happy mummy!

More recently we even took them out with us when we went out for our lunch. As I’ve said, usually I would have had to battle with them to put on their bibs to keep their clothes clean but they really do like wearing them. As we ordered the food, we popped the bibs on. The best thing was as we finished our food, we don’t have to carry home dirty bibs. A quick wipe and there ready to use again later in the day.
