Buddy Up To Tray Buddi

Tray Buddi is an innovative, dishwasher safe, fold-able mesh screen designed to protect surfaces such as carpet and flooring from food, liquid and other spills. Perfect for travel or home use. Tray Buddi has also been used by healthcare professionals as well as older adults who are chair bound.

Tray Buddi will be at the 2017 Chicago Baby Show, on August 26 and 27, at Navy Pier, when the nation’s largest show for expectant and new families comes to Chicagoland. A family-friendly mega-event featuring everything to do with maternity, baby, and toddler – from top products to trusted parenting experts – the Chicago Baby Show will welcome thousands of expectant and new parents from Chicago, the surrounding suburbs, and beyond!

Tickets to the Chicago Baby Show are $30 per family, and $20 per individual.


To learn more about Tray Buddi, we spoke with Jodi Bracho, the company’s CEO.

For someone unfamiliar with Tray Buddi, how would you describe the company’s mission and core offerings?

Tray Buddi is a mesh screen that can be easily attached to any highchair in order to keep food from falling to the floor.

A big plus to my product is that it can also be used on a stroller, toddler chair, toddler car seat, and wheelchair with a tray! Tray Buddi is available in two colors, sets up in thirty seconds, easily buckles in the back, folds right up within itself making it so convenient for travel, and it can be placed on the top rack of your dishwasher to be cleaned, or just wipe clean with soap and water!

Tell us about the company’s background. When did it start and how has it evolved since then?

I invented Tray Buddi over three years ago and it was inspired by my daughter (Gabi).  It was made out of love to keep her safe, due to her severe allergies! It has become a true dream come true, as we’re able to help so many families and health care professionals.  Tray Buddi is not only great on a highchair, but it works on strollers, toddler chairs, toddler car seats and wheelchairs as well!

What are the most popular and newest products from Tray Buddi?

Tray Buddi is a new company and we are selling one product that is available in two colors at this time.

What sets Tray Buddi apart in the baby marketplace?

There is nothing that can compare to the quality of Tray Buddi on the market, and this is the Original Tray Buddi with our logo right on the front circle.  When I invented Tray Buddi I searched everywhere and there was nothing selling out there that was even close to this! To have an incredible product you have to have the passion and love for it, and a story that’s real behind the inventor! Tray Buddi is an incredible product that will definitely help make so many lives easier!

What can parents expect from Tray Buddi at the Chicago Baby Show?

Parents can expect to see Tray Buddi displayed on a highchair and car seat at the New York Baby Show, and although I attended before under another company name I’m thrilled to return with my invention and my product! They’ll get to meet me and see me demonstrate how easy Tray Buddi goes on and off the highchair.  I will also be doing a giveaway at the show! When someone purchases a Tray Buddi they will be entered in the raffle to win a highchair.  They will see the two colors that we sell (Pink and Aqua).
