Sometimes a mama's gotta stand up and fight.
Against germs, that is.
If you know me in real life, you know that I am not a huge fan of crowded places like movie theaters and malls and hospitals. I will go to those places - don't get me wrong - I just don't like all of the germs (and potentially scary people) that abound in heavily-populated places.
To help combat the "yuckies" when I'm out-and-about, I like the idea of the Clean and Green Germ Defense collection of products by Classy Kid Inc.
The products are disposable and biodegradable ("breaks down in months, not decades"), thus making them "Earth Friendlier."
I love that the company says "Earth Friendlier" and not "Earth Friendly." After all, disposable products aren't exactly "green." That said, sometimes these kind of products do come in handy and - if I'm going to use them every once in awhile - I would rather use products that are better for the earth, wouldn't you?
WIN IT! One winner will receive one pack of each of the above-mentioned products by Classy Kid Inc.

These Earth friendlier products are a great idea! They would be perfect for my friend.
I would like to try them.
These would come in so handy, please enter me :)
wow, we don't have any of this stuff and need to start potty training...
The placemats are an awesome idea!
The coloring placemats
The Keep Me Healthy Potty Protectors would be great to have, Im potty training my son and thinking about him going to public restrooms grosses me out, Thanks :)
I would love to have the potty protecters. Every time we have to use the potty away from home I freak out. I keeping wondering who else has sat there. thanks
the placemats would be great for keeping the little ones busy in restaurants
These would be great, it seems like no matter where we go, my daughter has to use the bathroom, and most of them are usually disgusting. Or they dont have anything to go on the seats! Thanks for the chance!!
I'm a germa-phobe! This is a great fighter against the yuckies!
I absolutely love that the potty protectors are so large. So many liners are tiny and shift around so much that they aren't much help at all. These ones are great.
I most like the coloring placemats to keep them busy while I'm getting the meal prepared
I am a totaly germaphobe and will only want the cleanest for my little one. I love these products.
I am a germ freak too!! POtty protectors would be great! The disposable placemats would be great too!!
I know every mom out there has a diaper bag that weighs a ton, I like that these are disposable so it doesn't go back into the bag!
The disposable placemats sound great I would love them for when we are outside
These all look fabulous. Im a germ freak too, I wipe down carts, tables, etc. whenever we are out. After my son had an awful bout of cellulitis that they though was a strand of mrsa, Im even worse. I too, dislike crowded places.
These would be great products to have. Thanks.
I think the place mats are great. There are so many germs in public places
I'm going to have to stock up on these items once my son is older. These would be awesome when take road trips to NY...rest stops are so gross.
This would be great for my friend who is expecting. She could use the practical diapering items for the baby and her older child could color the placemats.
I have never used Classy Kid products,
but I have heard so many great things about the Company and the products they offer. Thank you for the chance.
I would love the chance to win,thanks.
Thanks Metropolitan Mama. You know just what a mom needs.
I like the idea of the potty protectors, it's really difficult to have a potty-learning toddler not touch the entire toilet in a public restroom. Especially with twins.
Good point about "earth friendlier"! I truly appreciate the honesty. These products really would be a help in situations on the go.
these are great products-I like the Potty Protectors - big enough so they will not touch the toilet
I love,love love the potty protectors. I'm potty training my son now and he's pretty good at home but whenever we go out I put a diaper on him because I don't want him sitting on a public toilet.
Germ freak here!! I would love to WIN this! Thanks for the great giveaway =)
I'd love to try the potty protectors. These would be great when my son is finally potty trained. I also love that they are biodegradeable.
The products do sound kind of cool but superfluous, I mean, I don't want to sound like a bad mother but people who are germ freaks kind of freak me out. My friends wife just had a baby and they bought a steralizer and everything and were boiling everything. My 1 year old touched one of their baby's toys and they had to put it in the machine to steralize it? I just think that is crazy, kids need to be exposed to germs to make antibodies. I don't know I guess I don't think they are going to catch a deadly disease by sitting on a toilet or getting their but changed on a changing table in a store. It is not like I go out of my way to use these things but if the need arises I will. I mean obviously if the toilet or changing table is smeared in feces I'll pass to the next one but usually public bathrooms are fairly clean, I have only run into a few that weren't so great but still nothing to worry about. The food mats seem weird because most food places have their own little mats they give kids with crayons and stuff. I don't know all this stuff seems fairly situational unless you are obsessive compulsive about germs. I mean if i got these i might use a few of each and have leftover for my grandkids. I can see moms buying these because they sound cool and useful and then having them sit around. I wouldn't mind trying them out if I won though to see if I am wrong, maybe they would come in handy more than I think. I am more the kind of mom to tell my kid if something falls on the floor, quick! pick it up 5 second rule!
These products sound great. I'm all for knocking out germs whenever possible. Please count me in. Thanks!!
These would all be SO useful in our house. Thanks!
Great products to protect from germs that are in some of the most disgusting places!
Very cool ideas, I wonder if they are all available in local shops. It is so hard, you want to encourage the kiddos to be mobile and learn, but you never want them touching stuff! :)
I really like the diaper changing table covers. Those would really be handy to have.
Public changing tables are just totally gross in my book so I opt to change my kids in the car if it is an option. But for those times when you just have to change them in a public area, disposable changing mats are a must!
Diaper sacks are also a must in my book. I always keep a few in my diaper bag so when I am at a friend's house or even just changing a diaper in the car, the smell and mess is contained until I can throw it away properly.
We will be needing those potty protectors soon, sadly...i'd like to never have to face the public restroom with a toddler, but assume it is inevitable!
Wow! We go out a couple times a week, and boy would those place mats be nice. Thanks for the chance.
Im excited about the diaper sacks as we put all dirty diapers in the garage and spring is coming- it wont smell so sweet out there while we wait for garbage day
We take our grandchildren out to eat a lot. The placemats would really come in handy
I would love these - I am such a germ a phobe. I try not to have my kids touch anything in public places
I dread when we're out in public, and I hear "I have to go potty. It's any wonder how she can hold it in while I clean off the toilet and line it with layers of toilet paper. Hand sanitizer comes in handy for cleaning off the toilet.
Keep me tidy diaper sacks would really come in handy...diapers can get really smelly and we have been using the cloth diapers to save on money and thoes things can get smelly at times.
All these products sound really awesome. We are expecting in 5 months. thanks for the giveaway.
The coloring placemats are such a great idea! Keeps 'em busy AND healthy! Hm, do you think they could make attachable crayons?
great that they are biodegradable
These are really fantastic products. My daughter could really use this to keep germs at bay for my grandkids. Thank you so much!
very nice items thankyou
We will be on-the-go BIG TIME from June 15th through August 3rd, and I can only imagine how these products, esp. the changing pad covers and place mats, would make my life SO much easier!
my grandson could use these when he is out of doors playing [email protected]
What an awesome giveaway! We are always on the go and all of these products would be a wonderful help.
I am a germ freak myself. This parenting gig has just increased my freakatude (there's another Jinxyism for you :) ).
I love the place mat idea.
I love disposable placemats for my kids. Whenever I don't have one I cringe. The potty ones sounds amazing. I would love to have this my family on the run!!

As a teacher, surrounded by germy kids all day, I get a bit obsessive about germs and staying clean. These products sound great! Thanks!
Wow! These products are so handy! I don't like germs either and these are such a great solution!!
I like the slogan "friendlier" rather than friendly. I have not heard of this company but when I visited their website, I was quite impressed. They make genuine stuff.thanks
All these products sound really awesome. We are expecting a boy in 7 months. Any of these items would really help.
Those placemats look cool!
I LOVE Classy Kid and these are a STAPLE in our household....germs are EVERYWHERE! UGH!
Funny enough, I saw their table covers at a restaurant in San Diego....Cafe 222....I wanted to email them but I couldn't find a contact number/address....
I thought it was really ingenious of them to get into a restaurant...it even came with a wipe and crayons.....
These are definitely products that I like to have in my bag when we're out and about. Germies are really just freaky - especially in public restrooms, and those changing tables - ick. I'd rather change the baby on my lap in the car than use some of the changing tables I've seen in public restrooms.
The diaper sacks would definitely be used. We go out a lot to metal detect and to the park and are always looking for a bag for the dirty diapers. Thanks for the chance.
Cool! I've never heard of this company but it's a great concept. I especially like the idea of the toilet seat covers now that we've entered the potty-training stage. I've contemplated carrying around our seat topper wherever we go just in case! ;)
Those potty protectors sound awesome. I had a gross out experience where my niece put her hands all over a toilet at a public pool!! UGH!! These are a must!
We're in the very early stages of potty training our daughter, so we haven't had to deal with public toilets yet. But I dread that day. These potty protectors look like a life saver.
I love how these are all such practical items. The placemats would especially come in handy for entertaining our hyper son at restaurants!
