Construction Eating Utensils Review

Construction utensils. Yes, three of them and so cute. The set consists of a fork, spoon, and a pusher. We found them at Construtive Eating. I couldn’t resist, I just had to know more about these unique utensils. So, I contacted Jackie Malcolm, the creator, to give me a little insight as to how she came up with these fun items.

Jackie told us that these items were created as a result of her middle child, a boy, who was going through his construction phase. Jackie stated, “It was just one of those middle of the night ideas. Our third child was still very young and we spent many wakeful night hours just laying in bed, sleepless and thinking. It just dawned on me that construction machine utensils would really tickle his fancy”.

Jackie stated that her husband was an engineer, so he fine tuned the designs after local stores expressed an interest.

Constructive Eating has added a matching plate to their collection. I had the opportunity to review the plate, and I found the orange color stimulating. It’s divided into 4 section and contains a place to hold the fork, spoon and pusher. The bottom of the plate contains rubber, which keeps the plate from sliding. This is a great concept. The plate is a great buy at $14.95.

I absolutely love the utensils. The set consists of a fork, spoon and a pusher and the construction is superb. The construction is important to me, because my 18 month old grandson believes everything is made to be thrown. He’s learning to feed himself, so I thought this set would be perfect. When I gave him the spoon, he immediately pointed to his dump truck. He loves it. I carry it in my diaper bag now. He loves to eat his ice cream off it when we’re out and about. He also uses the fork for his corn, mac and cheese and Cheerios. Yes, he uses it for Cheerios too.

Be warned, these utensils are so cute your toddler won’t want to share. My grandson’s cousin visited and wanted to use his spoon at breakfast. Oh my, let the fun begin. Xavier wasn’t happy about sharing, so guess who will be buying a set of utensils for visiting cousins in the near future? The set is $19.95 and is available in pink and green.

I highly recommend this feeding set for a birthday or Christmas gift or a fun way to get your toddler to eat. We would love to know your thoughts on this set, so please leave us a comment.

Baby Dipper Bowl Give Away

I was excited when Barabar asked me to review The Baby Dipper Bowl. We’re always on the look out for products that make make life easier for mom. When I received the set, I was impressed. I love the color of the bowl and the shape was well thought out. The shape helps with placing the food onto the spoon and the spoon rests in the bowl easily. Great concept if you have the baby in your arms rather than the high chair, which happens often when visiting friends or grandma.

The spoon is contoured with a contrasting handle in yellow. This is a great stimulation for baby. The bowl has a non-slip base to help prevent sliding. This benefit is two-fold, great bonus for mom keeping the bowl stationary while feeding baby and a great bonus for toddlers learning to feed themselves.

The bowl is great for cereal or apple sauce for infants and toddler’s fruits or spaghetti. This set would be a great practical baby shower or new baby gift for a first time mother too. The Baby Dipper Bowl gets two snaps and a booty shake. It goes in grandma’s bag for sure.
