Boots Baby Spoons
Advantages: Easy to handle
Disadvantages: Meal times can be messy!
This is a review of Boots Baby Spoons which I bought around a year ago when we started weaning our daughter.
As there is no picture with this review header, I shall attempt to describe the spoons we have. There are twelve spoons, three of each colour: green, red, orange and yellow. On first inspection these spoons look absolutely huge for little mouths but I decided they were still worth a try. The spoons are also dishwasher safe although we turn ours around quicker by hand washing them.
I started with yoghurt and found these spoons ideal for our daughter, especially when she started to use a spoon herself and can handle these spoons brilliantly now. Whilst they look big, they are funnel like so seem to help the food stay upon them a bit better than smaller spoons. A lot of friends have laughed when they saw the spoons because they thought they were gigantic too but our daughter must have a big mouth to match them as she is perfectly happy using them.
For the price paid, these are excellent value for money. We have all 12 in rotational use and they are showing no signs of wear and tear yet and we have been using them for months. I found the smaller and shallower spoons better for the early stages of weaning but now we are trying most foods, these are great for puddings like custard, rice pudding or yoghurt. I really like the bright colours of the spoons and they brighten up our cutlery drawer. They are so easy to clean too as food doesn't tend to stick to the spoons.
At £1.50 for 12 spoons, these spoons are a great bargain and it means we can keep them in the change bag, the house and at Grandparents' houses all at the same time. You can have some washing and some in the drawer and there is always one to hand.
Don't be put off by their appearance, they may not work for all children but they are the best spoons we've got for self- feeding and if one goes missing, it's not the end of the world as we still have loads left in the drawer! I would repurchase these in a flash if I needed to as they are a bargain and do the job well but a pack of 12 will probably be enough to see us through.
Summary: A good independence tool
