If you couldn't tell, we travel with the kids a lot and though I'll leave the award for "Best Packed Diaper Bag" to my sister, Christina, I try to be as prepared as I can when leaving the house. One thing I've always wondered is why family friendly restaurants don't have kid sized utensils. Even IKEA, which uses their own brand of kid cups, plates, and bowls in the cafe.....doesn't provide the utensils from their set!
At this point, Charlie is big enough to handle adult size stuff, but when he was younger it was a pain to remember kid size utensils, keep them clean, somehow clean them off after use, and hope we didn't lose them. We tried the Take and Toss stuff, but it was so cheap and didn't last long. Thankfully, Nuby introduced us to their Travel Set of utensils; toddler sized, dishwasher safe utensils in a plastic case that we can toss in the diaper bag and GO.
The set comes with four forks, four spoons, and this handy, washable travel case that snaps securely closed. I LOVE when I find exactly what I'm looking for in a product! These are the perfect size for either kid to use....even though Ginny is still getting the hang of this whole eating thing.
This past weekend, while we were volunteering at a summer camp, having this set was SO helpful. There were no child sized utensils in the dining hall and since we're trying to encourage Ginny to feed herself, we wanted to keep on that routine. We were able to bring the Travel Set with us to the dining hall, throw them into the case and wash them back at our cabin afterwards. No mess, no problem. If only there was a handy travel case to transport a messy toddler.......
As a bonus, the travel case doubled as a cup for Cheerios while we were driving home. BOOM -- unexpected multi tasker!
I'm so glad we got to try out this Travel Set. At around $6 for the set, I vote it a diaper bag must have. Maybe I have a shot at stealing my sister's title after all.
You can pick up the Travel Set from Buy Baby Direct, Cookie Kids, Ideal Baby, Kids Land USA, TJ Maxx, DD's Discounts, and Ross Dress for Less.
