(PRLEAP.COM) After being featured in the October 2006 issue of Parenting Magazine, the Piggy Platter Placemat was chosen by the magazine to be showcased on its Today Show segment on NBC. The Piggy Platter is the world's first all-in-one placemat and craft mat for kids.

"We were very excited Parenting covered the Piggy Platter in its Crunch-Time Solutions feature," said Lindy Bartell, founder of Smarty Parents. "And to be highlighted by Al Roker and the crew at Today was just icing on the cake."

The Piggy Platter has a host of features that means less mess at the table and speedy clean-up while offering unprecedented educational opportunities at the table. Because the Piggy Platter is a shatter-proof tray, meal-time spills and craft-time messes can easily be carried to the sink and wiped away. The Piggy Platter is also clear so educational art and images can be placed underneath to help educate and keep the child's attention at the table.
