Maker Story

A Welcome Mat

Lindsay Laurain, a mom of three boys, was tired of chaotic, food-flung dinners. She wanted to make her kids’ mealtime less messy and less stressful for everyone involved.

She began by creating the all-in-one Happy Mat. The silicone placemat-meets-sectioned plate sticks to a table or highchair tray, so there’s nothing to slide around and no upset dishes—any mess your little eater makes is more likely to end up on the mat, which washes up easily. From there Lindsay has created utensils, cups, and bowls all made with BPA-free silicone, just like the Happy Mat. This material is a deliberate choice because it is as durable and long-lasting as it is safe for little mouths and hands. Each piece is thoughtfully made to make mealtimes more hands-on for even the smallest diner, with small details like non-slip grips and weighted bases. By encouraging babies and toddlers to eat and drink on their own, their independence and confidence grows, and dinner time is a happier affair for everyone.
