This week we’ve been trying out the new Disney range of plates, cups and cutlery from Munchkin. I’ve used Munchkin stuff before and always been impressed with the design, and practicality – the cliplock bottle remains my favourite and believe me we’ve tried, lost and broken most of the makes on the market.
The new Disney range has several themes and Arthur was very excited when his new Winnie the Pooh bowl, plate and bottle arrived. Firstly it’s just good quality stuff. Great colours which are BPA free and seem to last really well with a good level of toddler-proofing!
We both loved it and I was particularly taken with the cute cutlery – the little rounded fork is so easy to use for little hands and I think a little less daunting than being faced with a normal fork and all it’s forky stabby bits!
Arthur liked the fact he could finish his lunch and see Winnie at the bottom of his bowl or plate and this was also a very handy technique for getting him to eat some more. I also like the separate areas on the plate and I used that to talk to Arthur about what he was eating and where we were going to put things. It’s these little things that help make meal times a little easier or a little more interactive and fun.
They washed really well in the dishwasher and like the other Munchkin stuff we have I’m sure they’ll last and last.
Munchkin is available in Tesco, Asda, Wilkinsons, Morrisons, Argos, Amazon, Boots, Mothercare and other good quality retailers. Prices start from £4.50.
