The school holidays are flying by so quickly. Most days we’ve been out and about, visiting some great (though usually packed) local places and keeping as active as possible. It’s back to school in less than three weeks and the big question is – ‘school dinners or packed lunches?’
We didn’t receive the whole range (below) just a few bits to try!
The range, shown in full above, includes some really beautiful tableware for kids, cleverly designed by product designer parent-team Suzanne and Andrew Stokes for their two children aged three and one. As they watched their own kids battling with the classic ‘peas rolling off the spoon’ or ‘food falling off the plate and onto the floor’ dilemmas they decided to design their own tools for the job and came up with this new range specifically created for little fingers.
I was immediately impressed with the packaging as all of it was entirely recyclable with the added bonus of having pictures outlined for the children to colour in before recycling it or using the packaging for another purpose. For example, the triangular box that the cutlery set comes in could be coloured in and then used as a box for crayons or the dining box packaging could be used as a little carry case in itself.
Product features include:
I particularly liked the lunch bag and the snack pots from the ‘out and about’ range as they are a little less generic than most of the things we find in the supermarkets these days…these might sway us towards packed lunches!
The table mats were engaging enough to get them happily to the table and stayed in place well – there’s nothing worse than a mat that slides around in my view!
