Gripables Comfortable Cutlery

When I first saw these come in as samples, I asked myself why we would sell silverware, of all things. But then I took a set home to "sample" with my eighteen-month old daughter (I know she's a little under the age range!), and I am sold! She was just learning the fine art of feeding herself with a spoon and fork and was obsessed with silverware, often stealing mine partway through a meal so that she could eat like a big girl. Of course, this is a messy process, but kids have to learn by doing, right? These silverware sets, made by the producers of the Pencil Grip (which teach children correct hand position on writing implements - see our Handwriting section), feature very grip-able soft round handles. Unlike most utensils with two flat sides, these can be held at whatever angle works best for your child, without being uncomfortable. Being able to position these at different angles was very helpful in discouraging spoons from being flipped upside down, or food spilling off on its way to her mouth. Small-sized for small people, without being tiny, the silverware sets include a fork with blunt ends, a spoon, and a knife. The handles are available in three different colors (listed below), striped with white and are dishwasher safe and non-toxic. Gripables are also latex-, phthalate- and BPA-free and meet all safety requirements. ~ Megan
