We still haven't invested in child-size dinnerware for our son and are dutifully exploring our options. We're looking for something hard to break, safe to eat on and microwave and easy to clean. Cheery colors certainly don't hurt. Beaba, headquartered in France, and makers of the popular Beaba Babycook now offer a line of dinnerware just for kids.
The Beaba dinnerware collection includes baby spoons, toddler cutlery, plates, bowls, cups and a lunch box. All are BPA, pthalate and PVC-free. They can go in the microwave and dishwasher which most parents appreciate. The bases of the plates, bowls and cups are "slip resistant" which is a little vague, but also a feature we're looking for. And we do like that the color combinations are bright, cheerful and gender-neutral.
Except for the lunchbox everything comes in sets - 3 plates, 3 bowls, 3 cups, 4 spoons, 4 pair of cutlery and range in price from $20-$30. You can find the collection for sale through Baby Cook Store. If you've tried these out - let us know how you and your kids like them in the comments.
