LTD has begun to grasp the concept of ‘pretend’ or as Mr. Rogers called it, ‘make believe’ and this new ability has come in particularly handy when dealing with food. He is big on eating pretend goldfish crackers and feeding them to everyone nearby. It is with this new behavior that real dishes were called for. Green Toys makes a Dish Set that is pretty cool because even though the little guy usually plays make believe he also has a habit of using the cups and bowls for actual eating and drinking. The set comes with cups, bowls, plates and silverware made from 100% recycled plastic milk containers. The pieces are also non-toxic, BPA-free, and meet FDA food contact standards. However, the feature I really dig is the fact that they are dishwasher safe. Another cool feature is that he can use the set’s plastic knives without hurting himself or the more likely target, me. He usually makes soup which truth be told is always a little too salty, but for The Mommy he makes a nice cup of tea. So far he hasn’t thrown a dinner party for the stuffed animals but I imagine that will soon be on the list and I can’t wait to take pictures to show his future high school prom date.
