Smiling Planet is an online store that creates products based upon the illustrations from their children's books. Their products are always part of a bigger story (literally) and they're super-duper eco-friendly to boot! They aim to make children and parents alike smile through their day and who can't get behind that?
Smiling Planet is running at the top of the pack when it comes to children's dinnerware and the methods in which it is made. Their plates and bowls have no BPA, no phthalates, no lead, no toxic inks and are CPSIA compliant. They are also made from 100% recycled, 100% recyclable, safe, high-grade polypropylene plastic — making them a safe alternative to melamine, especially with their sub-surface decorations. "The one-inch vertical sides on the plates help keep food on forks and off the table. The plates and bowls are stackable, top rack dishwasher safe, and virtually unbreakable."
They also have posters and books in their store, all of which carry the same earth friendly, harmonious themes at reasonable prices.
Although their website doesn't allow us to directly link you to their individual products, navigation on the site is extremely easy. Across the top you'll find tabs for the type of product you're looking for and large, easy to see displays will pop right up. It's easy, we promise! Here's a few of our favorites:
