A big box arrived one afternoon, which was very exciting as we weren't sure what we would be sent, so we were thrilled to open the box and see a number of products, all brightly coloured and very suitable for our monkeys, especially the smallest one. The Lindam products are in a separate review.
Munchkin Disney Baby Toddler Dining Set
This arrived in the usual cardboard and plastic packaging that I personally always find quite hard to get into! On getting into the packaging I showed little monkey his new plate and he looked delighted with it. It's nice and colourful and catches the eye with the Monsters Inc bright colours on it. It is also divided into three sections. The set comprises a bowl, spoon and fork. All in green and blue and very eye catching.
Littlest monkey seemed to really enjoy using his new plate and spoon, both the ideal size for a 2 year old. The set is suitable from 12 months and is BPA Free, the bowl is square for helping to scoop food from and the plate has a grippy base. He used the bowl for his favourite chocolate treat. The spoon and fork have curved handles and are an ideal size for him. All items are top rack dishwasher safe. As you can see from the photos the Toddler Dining Set is a hit.
Munchkin Disney Baby Flip Straw Cup
This cup is suitable from 12 months and takes 9ozs of fluid. Is 100% leak free according to the packaging, has a click lock lid and a soft, flexible spill proof straw. It is also top rack dishwasher safe.
I'm pleased to say we have to fully agree with it being 100% leak proof as I did the shake and turn upside down test and nothing escaped! There was no leakage from the straw either when flipped up and turned upside down. Littlest monkey asked for squash so I gave him some in this lovely Monsters Inc cup which matches the Toddler Dining Set. He was really pleased to use it and has no problem unlocking the straw by flipping it up himself. The click lock system from my point of view is a great idea as you know the lid is secure. The cup is a great size for toddlers and judging by monkeys response to it, he finds it easy to use and hold. It's an ideal size for him.
Toddler Fork and Spoon Set
This little set also arrived in the box and like the spoon and fork from the Toddler Set it has curved easy grip handles and is the perfect size for little hands. These are also BPA free and suitable from 12 months. The spotty design is colourful and vibrant.
As a rule, at the minute little monkey prefers to use just a spoon but we are encouraging him to use a fork as well, so he will have a nice choice now. We shall add a bit more when smallest monkey has had more use out of all these great products.
Personally my favourite product is the Flip Straw Cup, but we love it all. You can find the above products on the Munchkin website. Alternatively follow their Twitter profile and Facebook page.
