At the beginning of the summer, I decided it was time to replace Little Buddy’s baby spoons and forks with utensils more appropriate for older toddlers. He does well at feeding himself independently but is still a long way from being able to maneuver adult-sized cutlery.
I began scouring the internet for quality children’s utensils. Plastic was out of the question because the few that we do have haven’t lasted well. I came across a company called Kiddobloom and was immediately impressed by their bio, which expresses their gratefulness for their children and their desire to create quality kids’ products that last.
I ordered a set of metal cutlery, and Little Buddy has loved them from the start. The forks and spoons are the perfect size for his little fingers, and I look forward to letting him use the blunt knives when he is a bit older. He is two-and-a-half, and the size of these utensils will make them appropriate for another few years.
With all the meals and snacks that toddlers require, we use our Kiddobloom utensils at least six or seven times a day. They have held up perfectly. I love that they so closely resemble our other cutlery, so that Little Buddy feels like a big boy when he eats alongside us.
Kiddobloom sells two sets of utensils, one for babies and young toddlers that is 4.7 inches long and one for older toddlers and children that is 5.75-6.25 inches long. I bought the larger size. The company also makes metal dinnerware sets, which include a bowl, cup, and divided plate.
If you have children, at what age did they start feeling themselves independently? At what age did they start using adult utensils?
This is a sponsored post, but we have a strict policy of only posting items that we actually use. We spent money on Kiddobloom utensils long before receiving a sponsorship, and we genuinely love this brand.
