My children as youngsters all had their own carefully chosen plates and bowls and while it might be a big assumption to make, I do think this contributed to the family dinner harmony. Peas are much more appealing when rolling around a much loved plate than a boring one. It’s with this in mind I want to bring these fun melamine wares from Buddy + Bear to your attention, and hopefully, to your kitchen table!
Firstly, plastic is awesome for kids because frankly speaking, they drop stuff constantly – and while you can’t protect your floors, you can certainly protect your favourite crockery set. Buddy + Bear melamine tableware and plastic cups are extra tough, microwave safe and even dishwasher safe – and there’s no denying their fresh modern look is easy on the eye.
Buddy + Bear’s Shapes plate (£7) is seriously cute and pairs beautifully with the Triangle and Circle tumbler (£5.50) which comes up trumps as my favourite design. The Happy Clouds come in as runner up position to first choice – who can pass up a smiling cloud!?
The gorgeous melamine egg cups are worthy of a mention for those kids (and adults!) that love a dippy egg and toast soldiers but find a traditional egg cup (why are they all on little stands?) hard to stop from toppling over, this bear and bunny are bringing breakfast struggles to an end.
