FAQs

How Do I Clean My Placemat?

Placemats should be wiped clean using a soft cloth. The use of mild detergent, such as washing up liquid, can be used if required however you should not use anything abrasive such as scouring pads. We also recommend wiping spilt food from your placemats before it dries - it's easier and it will prolong the life of your mats!

Are Little Wigwam Placemats Safe For Young Children?

Absolutely! Our placemats are made in Great Britain and comply fully with British safety legislation including toy safety regulation EN71, which means the inks and lacquers on the mat are safe for use by children - there are no toxins, no thalides, no heavy metals and no PVC! The mats are finished with a smooth edge and rounded corners for added safety. We would never sell anything that we wouldn't be happy for our own kids to use - our kids use Little Wigwam placemats every day!

Should I Buy A Placemat That Is Recommended For Older/Younger Children?

The recommended ages we show against the placemats are just there as a guideline - all the placemats have a very wide range of age appeal, and there is no "right" or "wrong"... different children like different things at different ages! (You'd be surprised how many Dads order an extra Solar System placemat by "mistake" :-)

Are Your Placemats Just Laminated Paper?

No, absolutely not! Unlike the cheap, flimsy, laminated-paper mats you can find elsewhere (if you look in the wrong places!), Little Wigwam's quality placemats are made from a hard-wearing material called polypropylene. Not only that, our mats are printed directly onto the polypropylene and then coated in a special non-reflective, UV-resistant, child-safe lacquer - so your mat won't fade, and your kids can easily read their mats rather than struggling with the glare of lights!

What Is Polypropylene?

Polypropylene is a very eco-friendly, non-toxic material which is 100% recyclable - please see our Green page for further details.

Where Are Your Products Made?

Our placemats and posters (and our free rulers!) are made right here in the UK, our games are made in the UK and EU, and our jigsaws are made in the EU! We don't believe in manufacturing products in Asia and shipping them half-way round the world - not only is the quality better in the UK and EU but it's much more environmentally friendly too...
