I love using colorful matching dish sets for my kids' snacks and meals. Not to mention, I swear it makes my kids eat better.
And now, there's a new line of children's dinnerware from Marimekko--yes, the design house responsible for the iconic bold prints that may be on your couch cushions or even baby clothes--that I'm totally in love with.
Made from durable porcelain--so not for babies--the four different kids' dish sets include a plate, a bowl, and a mug. On the plus side, porcelain means microwaves, dishwashers, ovens and freezers are all fair game.
Now I will say the price is not cheap; in fact it really is an awful lot to spend on something you might end up sweeping up in tiny pieces alongside the overly ambitious leek-and-feta fritatta you dare serve your discerning chid. Come to think of it, maybe just consider that floral print for yourself? Still, it's nice to window shop. So pretty. -Stephanie S.
