Funky and fun cutlery

August 10, 2010

I’ve been on the look out for some cool cutlery for ebabee no. 1 who is now insisting on feeding herself or she starves!

The first place I headed to was Zara Home, knowing that they’re usually great in the toddler cutlery department.  I found these ‘hombre’ cutlery sets.  They’ve got a PVC handle in the shape of a little man who’s wearing a hat and each piece has a shiny, happy face on it.  They’re available in black, green, blue and pink and cost £3.99 per piece. You can buy them online at Zara Home but with their rather large delivery charges your best bet is to get down to a shop if you’ve got one nearby.

If you’re after pure stainless steel, the kids animal cutlery is rather funky. The pieces are shiny and each one has a whacky animal face engraved on it.  They cost £2.99 a piece.

Once home I decided to have a bit of a surf.  I found the WMF Hits cutlery which comes in bold, bright colours and has wavy handles making it easier for small hands to grip.  The handles are made of acrylic plastic and the tops are shiny stainless steel.  They cost £16.99 for the four piece set with a £2.95 delivery charge.

I rather like the translucent handles on the inter-locking Trebimbi cutlery which is similar to the Zara Hombre one. They too have shiny happy faces on the stainless steel bit and the plastic handles form their bodies, making each piece look like a funky little person. They cost £11.99 + £2.95 delivery for the set and come in yellow, orange, pink and blue. You could get a couple of sets and mix and match or these would make a cool gift.
