Cruisy Baby to unveil the Placematix Kid’s Dinner Set at the Baby Show 2015


From cheese strings to sandwiches cut into triangles, parents have tried many ways to increase the ratio of food that ends up in their child’s mouth to the amount which lands on the floor. Cruisy Baby is excited to launch the ingenious Placematix Dinner Set at the Baby Show, New Zealand’s NZ's longest-running and most successful parenting event.

Placematix is smart, functional and designed to make mealtimes fun, encourage kid’s imagination and coordination. Built to fit or popular brands of brick toys like Lego® Duplo®, this unique kid’s dinnerware puts eating, playing and learning in the centre of development.

“Kids are often finished eating before their parents and of course they want to leave the table while parents still want to finish their meal, says Lara Fleck, Founder of Cruisy Baby. “Just take away the plate or bowl and replace it with their brick toys on the placemat and kids will play at the table, allowing their parents to enjoy their dinner. We think it’s a brilliant idea!”

Winner of the Mad Blog Awards and currently a finalist in the Excellence in Housewares Awards, the Placematix concept is based on the world’s most popular toy principle; interlocking brick toys. All Placematix parts are universal with the existing and popular branded toy bricks like Lego® Duplo® and Megabloks, giving a wide choice in playing possibilities.

All Placematix parts can be connected, preventing knocking plates and bowls off the table.

Placematix is:

  • Developed and made in Europe
  • Recommended for ages 1-5 yrs
  • BPA free, tested, durable and made from food approved material
  • Recyclable
  • Microwavable for up to 5 minutes

The Dinner Set including placemat, bowl, fork and spoon is available from Cruisy Baby for $39.95, the plate is available for an additional $9.95. All accessories are sold separately. Cruisy Baby will have a great value-for-money Show discount of 20% off normal RRP at the Baby Show on stand A27.
