Oneida Stainless Flatware for Toddlers

I had the extreme pleasure of trying out Oneida's Paul Revere Child and Baby Flatware 6 Piece Progress Set.  I am currently in the process of weeding out plastics whenever I can, so this couldn't have arrived at a better time.

The set comes with six pieces in a lovely box, which is just perfect to give as a gift.

There is a set of flatware for babies, and one for toddlers/big kids. My daughter is totally digging her new flatware. They look just like mommy and daddy's, but they fit her tiny hands!

The flatware is dishwasher safe, and is 18/8 stainless steel with a brushed finish.  Ava LOVES that she is allowed to use a knife- it's little and not very sharp, but is perfect for exploring and strengthening her cutting skills.

This particular set is currently on sale~ regularly $30, it's available for $24.99, check it out today!

Thank you to Oneida for providing my daughter and I with a sample of this set to help facilitate this review. All opinions are 100% our own.

Go See: Mars Needs Moms

Mars Needs Moms was fun filled, heart warming story about a little boy who has this wonderful adventure as he is trying to rescue the very person he took for granted: his MOM! We laughed throughout the movie and teared up at the end...a sign of yet another awesome Disney Movie! My girls loved the characters and I appreciated how life-like the human characters were! That was fascinating! We were last to leave the theater as we enjoyed watching the actors make the movie as the credits rolled along. For what it's worth, this mom is highly recommending  Mars Needs Moms!

The fun did not stop when they turned on the lights...What an exciting day! We enjoyed every activity that followed at the Franklin Institute as well as the movie! My kids were excited to learn about Mars. The science experiments were of high interest. My little one, 7 years, was dressed as an astronaut during a demonstration~Very cool! She was in her glory! My older one, 10 years, soaked up the information on star gazing/star chart. She loves looking for stars with her make and take project. We greatly appreciated everyone's time and effort in making this such a valuable-FUN-experience for our family!
