We saw this Nymphenburg Sketches bowl with hippopotamus by Hella Jongerius from Moss in Paper Magazine's gift ideas. There is also a snail, a fawn, and a bird. We thought these would be a great way to get kids to eat their veggies. How fun would it be to eat your Brussels sprouts if you uncovered a magical animal along the way? Then we saw the $2,295 price tag and realized that no child would ever be allowed to come near these dishes. Ever. In the bowl's defense, it is Hand-painted, hand-thrown porcelain with ivory glaze, so maybe you can think of it as more of an investment in art.
