"I purchased these for their entertainment value - coloring at a 2-year old bday party. I had the kids 'decorate' their cupcake with stickers and crayons. But I had extra mats that I lined up (design-side up) and used as a table-runner for the food table. Worked great!"
"I was not happy that these came unassembled - picture 8 flat triangles of cardboard you have to mold, tuck, and then attach the elastic cord to each side. Not difficult, but annoying to add one more task to my list to prep for the party. Also, they only lasted on the kids for about 10 minutes."
