Fidgety (= all) children often need a little extra incentive to stay sitting at the dinner table. Peng + Hu’s Hirameki placemats (Thames & Hudson, RRP £9.95) provide just that. The tear-off pad comprises 36 placemats (four each of nine designs) featuring paint blots and blobs, just waiting to be transformed into creatures, vehicles, people, landscapes. Just draw what you see – the only limit is your little one’s (or your) imagination. Great fun and easy to tear off a couple to pop in your bag for a meal out as well.
