Kidz Box Illustrated Placemats

These adorable, artistic placemats caught my eye a few weekends ago while I was shopping in Brooklyn. They're a great idea for keeping hungry kids (or hungry, creative adults) occupied while dinner cooks: playful line drawings are printed on food-grade silicone (without BPA, phthalates, or any of that bad stuff) and packaged with nontoxic washable markers so they can be run through a dishwashing cycle and then colored in again and again. No Spongebob here — the dozen or so designs are created by various independent artists, and are charming enough that I'd hang them on my wall.
