Zak Designs has been committed to making mealtime fun for people around the world. Whether it's through dinnerware and on-the-go products that feature children's favorite characters or tableware and kitchen prep products that represent the latest global fashion statements, Zak gives people the mealtime products that fit their appetites.
Every parent knows that teaching toddlers how to feed themselves can sometimes be a trying – and messy – proposition. With Zak’s new ToddlerificTM line, it no longer has to be. Featuring a complete assortment of mealtime products that are all created meet the unique needs of toddlers – from durable plates and bowls with high sides and wide bases, to arched flatware and innovative insulated cups that adapt to growing thirsts – the Toddlerific line is designed to make mealtime fun for toddlers and easier for parents.
The new line from Zak Designs features a complete assortment of products that were designed specifically to meet the needs of toddlers. The line includes a spoon and fork with thick grips and large arches to make them easy for little hands to hold onto, a wide-based bowl to help prevent it from tipping and a sectioned plate with high sides and contours that match the spoon and fork to make it easier to get food onto the utensils. The line also includes two different cups to meet the unique needs of different ages. The Spout Cup has a pronounced drinking spout to make it easier for toddlers who are 9+ months to transition from a bottle to a cup, while the Sip Cup has a low-profile lid that will help toddlers who are 18 months and older to work toward transitioning to a regular cup. Both of the cups are sized for small hands and feature double-wall insulation to help keep beverages cold while also preventing condensation from building up on the outside of the cup. They also both include a valve that allows parents to easily adjust the flow rate to better meet their child's drinking preference.
I love all the pieces in this Zak's line. The colors are bright, which makes it appealing to the eye (I am someone who likes even kitchen items to look appealing). The bright colors make it interesting for babies too I think. The monkeys on them are cute and the pink Owl set is adorable too! The plate and bowl don't both fit on my high chair at the same time, but my son likes a lot of variety when it comes to food which is why I like to use it all. Most babies only eat 2-3 different things at one time so I don't see that being a "problem". The spoon and fork are very easy for my son to hold onto. He just turned 8 months old so they're perfect for his little hands.
The bowl can be tipped over, as with any bowl, but the wide base definitely helps it happen much less than regular bowls. It's harder for him to pick up and try to toss it around, which definitely helps, especially if there is food in it.
The depth of the tray is nice, he doesn't mix his food up too much because of it, it keeps it pretty separated, and as he gets older I see it only continuing to be beneficial.
My favorite thing about this line is the cup. He's just learning how to drink along with his nursing, and the cup keeps it fun for him. He does chew on the spout, but what baby doesn't chew on everything? The fact it's double insulated is awesome, it doesn't get his hands cold and it doesn't get all icky wet on the outside from condensation, a major pet peeve.
