Congrats Emily N!
We recently had the chance to review a set of kid-friendly dishes from Duralex.
"Trendy, licensed kids tableware is generally made of plastic, lasts a year or so, and gets worn or broken as a child gets older. Kids tableware is often really a disposable product. Not so with the Duralex For Kids collection of glass, bowls, tumblers and plates. The products are BPA-free, 100% recyclable, dishwasher and microwave-safe and an eco-friendly alternative to plastic. Made in France, the Duralex For Kids collection is 4 to 5 times stronger than standard glass—so it is surprisingly shock-resistant. Plus there’s no chemical leaching. Duralex For Kids, a must-have for the active American child.
The transparent bowls capture the attention of young children as foods are in full view all the way to the bottom of the bowl. The easy-to-grasp drinking glasses have been the primary drinking glass for children in France for decades in both homes and school cafeterias. The tumblers are solid and won’t topple over easily even when bumped as a plastic cup will. The tumblers and the bowls are made from tempered glass, stronger than standard glass, withstands heating and cooling changes and is shock resistant. The tempered glass is non-porous so it does not retain odors, scratch or stain.
The Duralex For Kids collection is tough and durable and will last for decades without breaking or chipping. It is likely that the toddler drinking out of a Duralex tumbler today will be drinking out of the same tumbler as he or she goes off to college.
The Duralex For Kids includes collection includes 15 items. The most popular is the three-pc set that retails for $8.50 and is available in three sizes."
What we thought: These were great dishes! The kid's loved that you could see through the plate and bowl. It really added an element of fun to the meal:) These dishes are in such high demand around here that A and D have to take turns using them and I have to wash them between each meal and snack:) They have been thoroughly tested too...all three have been accidentally dropped and not a single on has broken. I like knowing my kiddos can have safe dishes that make them feel a little more grown up:) Duralex has a variety of safe dishes and their kids line is perfect for families with small children. ABCD Diaries gives Duralex an A+!
