Such wonderful illustrations on the pouches. I was a little dubious as it seemed to be a combination of two good ideas, reusable snack wallets and reusable colouring sheet but I wasn’t sure how it would actually be in reality. Instructions clear and simple. This was very easy to use. This is a fantastic eco idea but for me this would have been better with a zip and not Velcro. I like to do chopped apple and raisins for the car but this wasn’t possible as the Velcro is too strong for a young child to open and without a zip raisins aren’t suitable. A great idea having the two different sizes I personally would have preferred the same design on both. Unfortunately the detachable water doodle mat just wasn’t suitable, the pen was impossible to remove from the pack and personally even though it was a child safety lid I would have elected for a pen with a much bigger lid. The water doodle mat converting to place mat is a great idea. I would have liked this to have been the sole focus for this part of the concept. If it had had Velcro on both edges and was simply a food mat  would have been more taken with it. We have used them a lot, we are always looking for versatile and eco solutions. We used this on trips to the Library so in the car, at the park outside the Library. These became firm favourites with my children. I even borrowed them for my lunch! Orly liked the colourful designs were an instant win. I liked the fact it was reusable and versatile. This is good to take on holiday for snacks but I wouldn’t use the doodle side of it. Well-made and easy to clean. Unfortunately I do not feel it is good value as a lot of money for what it is. If they were solely snack pouches I would be buying a set for my elder daughter too as it’s handy to have wipe clean pouches but for me it’s too gimmicky. I might buy one as a gift as it’s a cute idea but not for me. I like simple, functional products. Eco solutions will always be welcome, for me after seeing these in use I would personally have preferred these with the kind of press shut line that the presentation bag comes with. The Velcro is more of a hindrance and for tiny snack such as raisins I would feel more comfortable with this whole side closing. I personally would be more willing to buy them if they were offered in the same design fabric. Also if they were offered in adult choice fabric I would be tempted to buy them for picnics or work for me. For me if the doodle side was change to a two sided fixture with Velcro and used solely as a food mat I would think that a great improvement. I much prefer buying from small companies and there is obviously a lot of care and consideration that has gone into the make of this product that I went to see what else they do.

Nicely packaged, very colourful. A great idea! Meal times can be stressful for us and  I appreciated this concept of keeping children busy! Instructions easy to follow and it was simple to use. Similar to water pen books, the children understood what to do through familiarity. This could have been bigger, they are a tight fit for sandwiches, only slightly. I didn’t use the small one as much, but often packed it as an extra distraction for the kids. They did enjoy using this as a doodle mat. They loved the rainbow colours! I think it is a great idea the doodle mat can be used as a place mat. Used a couple of times a month for picnics/ outings. Mostly used outdoors – picnics. They liked the rainbow colours and watching it disappear. Magic! I liked the designs on the bags. I do agree this would be ideal to take on your holiday and when travelling. This could be larger, the water page could last a bit longer the images faded quickly. Personally I think they are pretty expensive for what you get. I’m not sure the novelty of the water pen/board is worth that much. Though they are very pretty, they were complimented by friends. Personally I would not buy due to the price. I would not recommend as I think they’d feel the same as me, poor value for money. Great concept and idea, but falling a bit short in cost area. Loved the designs and the idea, my kids liked it straight away. Easy to use and keep clean. Lucy Kibbler-Weaver – Leo & Robyn – 4 & 1 Year

Nice concept, compact, easy to fit into a bag. Good concept but not sure how suitable for older children. Instructions clear and easy to follow.  Very straight forward to use. Not really big enough for what my youngest eats at 5 years old. The doodle mat was not really suitable for my boys but would have been when they were younger. The boys quickly lost interest as once done they needed to wait for it to dry to do anything else on it. I did like this concept that could be used as a hygienic place mat but again would probably be better when they were babies/toddlers. We used this a couple of times on days out and in the car. The boys liked the bright colourful pattern.  I liked the design and versatility. We found that the types of snacks you could use it for was fairly limited as fruit got easily squashed. Other things like crackers ended up broken which my kids don’t like. Great quality product, just not suitable for us I’m afraid.  If this was used regularly good enough value but not for us as we were not successful using it. Personally we will stick with reusable snack pots to prevent food

I personally would be more willing to buy them if they were offered in the same design fabric. Also if they were offered in adult choice fabric I would be tempted to buy them for picnics or work for me. For me if the doodle side was change to a two sided fixture with Velcro and used solely as a food mat I would think that a great improvement.
