Plastic for Kids
It doesn’t break when you drop it on the floor, hurl it against the wall or put it on your head – all things that frequenly happen when your tiny tot is getting to grips with his or her table manners. But with all sorts of cool and cutesy new designs hitting the shops, practicality isn’t the only reason to love plastic. So whether you’re planning a fun picnic (real or pretend), having a marathon baking session, or simply want to brighten up meal times, plastic pieces such as the pop-coloured pastry cutters and designer cutlery sets (above) are a mum’s new best friend.
