Check out these funky spoon and fork designs and let the little ones’ imaginations and appetites go wild!

Yes, they love the small forks and spoons. They actually pick them out of the drawer to use. :)

Quoting Vertical15:

 Did you ever use the toddler ones?  I have those cheaper ones from IKEA but I'm not too big of a fan but the kids like them.


Quoting Bmat:

They are cute!  My kids just use regular utensils.

 My 5yo loves when I give him the 'knife' to use.  Just enough of an edge to try to cut things himself.

For the little eater who is a budding transportation enthusiast…
Sound Bites Spoons from Nuby are the perfect “first” spoons for toddlers 6 months and older. The soft tip is soothing to the little ones’ gums and shaped to deliver just the right amount of food for the budding foodie. The fun trains, cars, and airplanes designs come complete with their unique sounds to make mealtimes an interactive experience.

my DD takes forever. The rest of us are finished and have moved on and she still has a plate full of food. :/

Quoting Vertical15:

 I personally don't mind that as two of mine eat really fast and always want to leave the table before the rest of us are done.


Quoting RobynS:

Personally, I like the construction ones. But this would only make my kids play at the table more--not get them to eat!

 Thats my 10yo.  I try not to push him too much because they csay its good to savor your food but sometimes it drives me nuts.  My younger two eat like their food is going to disappear before they get it into their mouths sometimes.

Yeah...I've thought of that, too. My DD isn't savoring, though. She's playing.
