Elephant Section Plate Gift Set (inc. one suction plate, bowl, spoon, cup & straw)
6m – 5yrs
The elephant nursery rhyme list is pretty endless. What could be more fun than bringing that wonderfully exotic creature to enjoy mealtimes with the kids.
There's also nothing more relaxing than breaking out into a well loved song to distract a little one who is being introduced to a new food or texture.
But you're probably here to find out what's inside this beautiful gift box and why you should think about buying it....
Let's first talk to the why:
All eco rascals bamboo products are made from natural bamboo that is FSC certified and grown without the use of pesticides - YAY!
Unlike most bamboo fibre products which tend to be different colours and thinner, our bamboo is NOT mixed with Melamine or other plastics that can leech into your children's food - Recent studies led to a number of EU countries banning the sell of bamboo fibre products to children under the age of 3 because of this. - DOUBLE YAY!
Mealtimes are already a daunting enough space for children. They are using all of their senses on overdrive. They are determining whether they like the SIGHT, the SMELL, the TASTE, the TEXTURE and the SOUND. Do they like the look of that? Does it smell good to them? Does it make a loud crunch when they're chewing. Is it lumpy. That's a lot for a little person to consider multiple times a day. So, this is where the super suction comes in, we decided to take out the other stress which is navigating their bowl or plate of food without it falling to the floor.
And now we get onto what's inside:
1x Bamboo elephant shaped plate with two large sections and a detachable suction base.
1x Bamboo bowl with detachable suction base
1 x large cup with a silicone straw feeder
1 x spoon to match
2 x reusable bamboo stalk straws
Once you've made the great step in investing in natural, non-toxic tableware for your children. We want to help you make it last.
All the products in this weaning set should be washed in warm soapy water and rinsed thoroughly before first use. This is also how to care for them after each use.
We recommend leaving the products to dry on a drying rack with the silicone detached and to store in a cool dry place. Reattach the silicone before next use. This will allow time for the bamboo to breathe.
We suggest coating in coconut oil with a kitchen towel and leaving overnight once a month. This will nourish your natural products and ensure they keep looking their best. If you don't take this step, then the bamboo can get dry and start to get rough.
Bamboo should not be put in microwaves, ovens, sterilisers, dishwashers or freezers.
Children should always be supervised when eating and drinking.
Silicone spoon feeders are detachable for cleaning purposes. Please monitor use.
