Getting playful in the kitchen just got a whole lot easier… and kid-friendly.

Introducing Tic-Tac-Trivet – the age-old game recast as a support for your teapot, pan or pot.

Four pairs of magnets keep double-sided square wooden blocks – with a bas-relief X on one side, and an O on the reverse – together as one solid pad. And when there are no hot pots to cool off, you can let the competition heat up on the field of tic-tac-toe fame. Best out of 5, anyone? How about winner gets to pick the choicest piece? Or first pour? The individual squares may be used as coasters.

Made out of resilient rubber wood and machined to a fine finish, this beautiful, high-quality magnetized trivet is simply irresistible as a family game and a functional protector for your counter top.

As a perfect accessory for any kitchen, especially one with children, Tic-Tac-Trivet is also the ideal gift for any occasion: housewarmings, birthdays, tea parties, beer pong – you get the idea.

So, gather everyone round the kitchen table and tap the Tic-Tac-Trivet into a whole, piece by piece. You know what they say about families who play tic-tac-toe together, don’t you?
