We’re launching into 2009 with a giveaway that will keep your kids (and your house) cleaner . . . and maybe a little craftier?
The Vegas-based Classy Kid company has burst onto the kid product scene with a focus on germ defense and attempts to make “non-toxic” as green as can be.
They’ve scored in the Inside Out book with the Keep Me Coloring Placemats, the first set of disposable placemats for kids that are actually biodegradable. Packed in groups of 10 or 20 in convenient zip-packs, the Keep Me Coloring Placemats take the restaurant kid mats another step – the stick-em backing makes them mats that truly stay in place. So do the accompanying “CrayAngles,” triangular crayons that come in every Classy Kid placemat pack and won’t send you scrounging around on a grubby restaurant floor because they won’t roll off the table.
For little artists who want to hang around the house, the Classy Kid Full Sleeve Art Smocks will keep their clothes paint free (which is almost more important than keeping THEM clean). Packed in bags of two – one of them, and one for a friend – the smocks can be thrown directly in the wash, making this a green kind of clean. The fabric itself is soft enough and light enough for little arms to keep moving around, but the full sleeve art smock make-up resists the paint, so it doesn’t soak through to skin (or sweater). Sized for kids, the smocks have grow-with-me velcro closures, so they’ll last through their scribble phase on into stick figures.
