Kitsch 'N' Fun Twirling Spaghetti Fork
A few years ago we got this for my daughter as a bit of a joke of a birthday present. She loves spaghetti but has an impossible time trying to eat it! She normally ends up putting it on her fork and sucking it. This is funny, but not extremely convenient! So as a bit of fun, we got her this!
Not that hard to understand really. If your kid (I say that, but adults could use it!) has trouble eating spaghetti, noodles or tagliatelle then they can use this fork. You insert the fork into the food, press the switch and watch it do its magic. It turns clockwise and the stringy food becomes wrapped around it. You can then eat up your spaghetti or noodles etc.! The idea is actually very good and I think pretty original!
Does it work?
Well, yes it does! When we first tried it out, no one really knew what to expect. She flicked the switch and it began a quite loud buzzing noise. We looked around in a bit of amusement as it did sound a bit weird, I must say! But, it worked very well. It did what it was supposed to and after Izzy had turned it off again she could easily suck the spaghetti off of the fork. It isn't the biggest fork but you can get a reasonable amount of food onto it. It is easy to grip and even toddlers could probably get the idea of it pretty quickly.
Price and Availability
It might sound quite expensive but for what it is, it is a pretty good price really. Around £5-£6 in most places online and there are quite a few different colours. There is red like shown in the photo provided by Ciao, a purple and darkish green one, a light and dark blue one and a light pink and a pinky purple one. So, many different colours for boys and girls.
Very simple to do. It is dishwasher safe (only the metal fork though as the handle has electronics in it obviously!) or you can simply wipe it over with a sponge and some fairy liquid. After all, the top bit is just a normal fork!
A Little Note
Just remember that it does require *** two AA batteries ***. They aren't included with the fork and you have to supply them. In case you are planning on buying it, it would be a nice idea to pop them in the gift as well; otherwise it can't be used anyway!
If there is anything I haven't explained and you aren't sure about, don't worry as it comes with a really good set of instructions as well. They tell you everything you would ever need to know!
I think if you have kids, grandkids, nieces and nephews or just a friend's kid coming round regularly, it is a great idea. Izzy is too grown up now really and so it was passed on to Jess, my friend's daughter and she loves it as much as Izzy did! It is pretty tough and durable as well as easy to clean. Yeah it's a bit noisy, but if it makes them eat their dinner then surely it's worth it! Stick the telly on and it kind of drowns it out, I find. It is a great fork and is really worth the money! Kids love it and it makes them enjoy their food more.
As Kitsch 'N' Fun say themselves - dinnertime has never been so much fun! And they were right!
Would I recommend the Kitsch 'N' Fun Twirling Spaghetti Fork? If you have some connection with kids then yes! If you haven't and still want one? Contact a doctor lol!
