Pampers Pocket Bibsters solve snacktime messes in the van for us. We have tried laying out a napkin or paper towel on our children's laps with snacks on it-- only to be dumped when they move slightly or we take a turn. We have tried coffee filters (bought specifically for this purpose since we don't drink coffee) and even little bowls. A few months ago I received a coupon in the mail from Pampers for their disposable bibs. I didn't even realize there were a couple different sizes and that some of the Bibsters don't have pockets. But I happened to get the pocket ones in the large size.
Well, just recently I stuck the box of bibsters in the van for when we might go out to eat. One day when the paper towel roll ran out, we discovered it was so easy to fill the little pocket with snacks like raisins, pretzels, cheese, and crackers. They don't have to hold on to the bib like they would a bowl because it's attached. The kids are thrilled to be able to reach their snacks without accidentally dumping them all over. We just fill them up before driving away and they are content. It even works smoothly with my 19-month old. So, Pampers Pocket Bibsters gets two thumbs up because they definitely work for me!
