      Tommee Tippee basic bowls - set of three in pink


      I have not long entered the wonderful messy world of baby weaning and before investing in too many (possibly) pointless items I thought that I would start with the basics, i.e., some bowls and some spoons.


      The Tommee Tippee basic bowls are simply just that a - basic weaning bowl, essentially they are just a child sized shallow plastic bowl. Each of the bowls has the same star pattern and all three of mine come in pink, I have also seen blue available. The bowls really are no fuss and don't come with lids or spoons, but they are a great size and are extremely light weight making them ideal for baby food.


      There isn't a huge amount to say about the Tommee Tippee basic bowls because they are a very simple piece of baby weaning kit, but they are perfectly suited to the task at hand. I really like the Tommee Tippee basic bowls that I own and I do plan on buying another set in a different colour the next time I see them. For the price they are a useful item to have around and as such I would highly recommend them.


      I bought my set of Tommee Tippee basic bowls from Tesco for a very reasonably priced £1.99, which in my opinion is a complete bargain. I use the bowls everyday at the moment and I can't see their use coming to an end any time soon.


      The bowls are dishwasher and microwave friendly and I have also been dumping mine in my cold water sterilser and so far the Tommee Tippee basic bowls still pretty much look like new, even after quite a few uses. And of course as with the majority of baby products the Tommee Tippee baby weaning bowls are BPA free.


      The bowls definitely get the full five out of five star rating from me. Yes they are basic, but then for the early stages of weaning I so far haven't needed anything but some nice bowls and spoons.


      Just as a little side note - I do really like the Tommee Tippee basic bowls but when I start feeding my daughter more and more I will invest in some bowls with lids because keeping these bowls sterile while carting them about in a busy changing bag is a little difficult, but for home use the bowls are fantastic.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A good weaning aid

        This is a review of the Tommee Tippee Weaning Bowl my mum bought for our daughter which we use when we eat at their house. The bowl is pink like the one in the picture and we also have the suction base to make it stick to her high chair table or to any other surface she has her bowl on.

        Description
        Well, it is a pink plastic bowl, which holds quite a bit and is removable from the base when it comes to washing it.

        In use
        We use it for everything from savoury to sweet to solid and liquid (like soup). It has been well and truly tested and continues to live to tell the tale. Our daughter is a bit of a chucker when it comes to food and whilst you can't stop her from throwing things with her hands (so annoying!) it does stop her from throwing the whole bowl on the floor which has happened with other bowls of food that she either doesn't like or has just had enough of!

        My thoughts
        Weaning can be a messy process and lasts a long time so an investment in some of these bowls is not a bad idea. Anything which helps promote independence whilst protecting your carpets is worth a try in my opinion!

        Price and availability
        I am sure my parents bought their set from the supermarket on one of their travels but online prices are competitive too with a set of the bowls costing around £5 on Amazon. I would recommend buying a set with the suction base if your child is a thrower too.

        Final word
        I think your first thought around these bowls is that they are a gimmick but they really do work. They are not as attractive as the melamine sets you can get with pictures on but they are not really ugly anyway. They wash up well and help children in the quest to feed themselves. I can't fault the product really and all our experience has been positive. We do use other bowls with our daughter but I am nervous when she uses the cute ceramic Miffy bowl I bought for her before she was born (me being unpractical).

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A great first bowl

        **The bowl**

        I love tommee tippee products as I have never had a problem with the quality or them failing to do as promised so when it came to weaning my children naturally I searched for a brand I can trust. I found these bowls in Tesco for around £5 for a 4 pack of bowls and along with the weaning spoons I decided to purchase them.

        The bowls come in a variety of colours; we have them in blue and pink. They are nice and vibrant meaning they are good to look at but also functional. What I like about these bowls is they are a good size so I can use them when my children are younger and only just beginning to try puree foods but they grow with the child as they can be used for more solid foods when the baby is older too.

        **In use**
        Tommee tippee suggest using this bowl with their magic mat which we did try but didn't find we needed it and of course they can be used by themselves anyway. We use the weaning spoons from tommee tippee with these bowls but as they are a good size any spoon can be used. It of course has a flat bottom for sitting on the highchair to make it sit steadily.

        The best feature of these bowls is the lip on the side of them. It can be awkward when you first start weaning to hold the bowl and spoon while trying to keep the mess to a minimum. With this bowl you can get a firm grip while you are feeding to make it less hassle and a lot easier to do. This simple feature actually helps improve mealtimes which I never expected when I first purchased them. Also now my son is older and becoming a lot more independent in feeding himself he can carry this bowl a lot easier because of the piece of plastic on the side of the bowl. As it is a rounded lip there is nothing that could be harmful to little one.

        They are BPA free and although they suggest they should be used from six months plus I am not sure why as obviously it is the parent that uses these bowls rather than the children while they are still young. The colours of the bowl are lovely but it also stops the staining of the bowls that tend to happen with other bowls we own. Although I tend to heat our children's food up in warm water rather than the microwave this bowl can be used in it and so are perfect if that is the way you warm your child's food.
        These bowls are very easy to clean they come up as good as new and can be used in the dishwasher. They do not lose any colour at all and after 5 years of use they are still useable and look perfectly new. We do like to sterilise our bowls while little one is just weaning but as they grow older we chuck them in the washing up bowl. They can be used in the dishwasher however I am not lucky enough to own one so cannot comment on how long they will last being washed in one.

        **Summary**

        We love these bowls they are simple and cheap and are a must have for any parent beginning to wean their child. They are widely available and although we purchased ours from Tesco you can pick them up at any supermarket, baby store or Amazon for around £5 for four bowls. I would highly recommend these bowls they are fantastic quality as always from tommee tippee and they can be used for more than weaning babies.

        Disadvantages

        Great baby weaning bowls from Tommee Tippee

        Being a first time Mum I was new to the weaning process and to be honest rather scared about how my little ones were going to take to something other than milk. I knew I was going to need bowls and spoons so just before I started weaning I went shopping in Boots to stock up on a few of the essentials. I saw these weaning bowls in a pack of 2 with a spoon and a lid. I had already used some Tommee Tippee products before and felt sure that these bowls would be of a good quality and so bought them along with some smaller Boots own brand bowls

        Packaging
        These bowls only had a small amount of cardboard packaging on them and so were easy to get into. It tells you that they are suitable from 6 months which is the recommended age for starting weaning, obviously these bowls are perfectly safe for use before 6 months if you need to start before this time.
        These bowls are BPA free which I always look for if the product is going to be in contact with my little ones food or drink.

        Using the bowl
        I found these bowls slightly large when I first started feeding solids, even though I was feeding 2 they were only having a few spoonfuls each and so the smaller bowls I'd bought were better. Within a couple of months the amount they were eating had increased to the point of needing these larger Tommee Tippee bowls.
        They have a decent sized handle which is easy to grip with one hand whilst you are feeding with the other. Being a good size it is easy to spoon the food from at the speed required from 2 hungry little mouths.
        You can use these bowls in the microwave which I have done a lot as I would freeze baby sized portions of meals to reheat. They are slightly stained now but I have been using them daily for over a year and I think they have worn really well.

        Colours
        These bowls are available in a range of colours, I have seen them in pink, blue and orange. I have one transparent pink and one solid pink.

        Price and availability
        I can't remember how much I paid for my set but these bowls are currently (August 2012) £5.99 for a pack of 4 on Amazon. I think this is good value for bowls which will last you through weaning.

        Would I recommend?
        Yes, these bowls are ideal for when you are feeding baby. Tommee Tippee also sell a suction mat which will hold it in place on the highchair when little ones start feeding themselves.

        Disadvantages

        Tommee Tippe weaning bowls

        If you're a parent like me you will have loads of little cups, bowls, lids and spoons floating around the house that you use when feeding your little ones. In my opinion and experience you can never have enough little bowls as they are so handy for actually feeding from, putting left overs in, taking out snacks in them etc etc.

        Most of the baby products I buy are from Tommee Tippee as I am always pleased with their products and they sell them at Boots which is where I go to buy everything baby and I can also get Boots Advantage points when I buy items here so its a perfect brand for me. I had some of these bowls back when I was weaning my little girls and at the start of this year I bought some for my little boy too.

        They come in either pink or blue so stereotypically I had pink for my little girl and blue for my little boy although it really doesn't matter, they are both the same. The bowls come with lids which is a must in my opinion as the lid is perfect when it comes to transporting food inside them. I think its also great to have a lid as when I put leftover mashed up food inside them it will stay fresh until later that day or the next day. This is perfect for when I have made a lot of mashed food and don't want to waste it.

        The bowls also come with a spoon which again is perfect as I really like the Tommee Tippee spoons. These spoons have quite a bendy rubber feel to them and the actually spoon part at the front is great for scooping out food and the soft rubber goes into my little boys mouth well and does not irritate his soft gums or teeth. I am finding now that he is chewing the spoon quite a bit as well and when the day comes when he is feeding himself (which won't be long I don't think) I think he will get on well with these spoons as they are so easy to hold and put into his mouth.

        The bowl is quite deep which I like as its harder for food to spill out of it which can often happen with an eager baby who is desperate for his food and who will grab at the bowl. Its also designed well and makes it quite easy for you to scoop soft mashed up food out of it. According to Tommee Tippee you can use these bowls with the Tommee Tippee magic mats. I actually have a Magic mat, its a mat that sticks to a highchair tray and then suctions on your bowl so a baby cannot drop it over the side and although I thought this was a great design idea, when I used it with my little girl she figured it out in a couple of days and was able to unsuction the whole mat and just drop that over the side of the highchair so I don't use the mat anymore.

        These bowls are available from Boots for £4.99 and in my opinion are a good weaning tool.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        These are good weaning bowls, I am going to buy the same set with lids

        WHAT ARE THEY?

        Small plastic bowls for feeding your baby.  They are made by Tommee Tippee and you can buy them in pink, blue and green. 

        ARE THEY ANY GOOD?

        These are good weaning bowls for babies from the very start of their weaning.  The bowls are quite small but they are big enough to hold a meal for your baby.  The handle on one side of the bowl is a good idea but it is a bit too big because it means the baby can easily grab hold of this handle and tip the food up. I used these bowls when I weaned my older daughter and they have kept their good looks and I still have and use all of them now. 

        The bowls are safe to use in the freezer, microwave and dishwasher.  My set have not been used in the freezer but now they come with clip on lids so that makes them more convenient for using in the freezer and batch cooking.  I have warmed up food in the microwave using the bowls and the plastic stays cool.  

        You can buy a Tommee Tippee mat that these bowls stick to but I haven't got one of these, my friend uses the blue mat and it looks quite useful so I will invest in one when I start weaning my baby daughter. 

        I think the round shape makes these bowls very easy to hold even without using the handle, I usually cup the bowl in my hands because I think it's more stable than gripping the handle. The smaller base means the bowl sits comfortably in my hand when I feed my daughter and the bases are also not slippy to help prevent it sliding around on the high chair tray, that is even more effective when you use the sticky mat with them.

        5 Dooyoo Stars.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        We still use these bowls after nearly 5 years

        I bought these bowls when I began weaning my youngest daughter just under 5 years ago. I cannot remember which supermarkets I bought these from but know it was just with our weekly shop as that's when I always bought these sorts of items.

        You can buy the bowls now in supermarkets, chemists and online, currently on Amazon they are selling for £5.99 for 4 bowls. The bowls comes in a cardboard wrapper which states that the bowls are BPA free and are suitable from 6 months upover however I cannot understand these having an age range on them.

        It seems from looking them up on the internet that these bowls are available in blue, pink and lilac, we have the lilac version.

        The bowls are shapes like a normal bowl, a circle at the bottom about 3 inches across and then the bowl tapers upwards to the top which is about 5 inches across. On one side of the bowl there is a lip which allows you to hold the bowl easily when feeding your baby, the only detail on the bowl is the Tommee Tippee logo on the lip of the bowl.

        The bowls are made of hard plastic and they are safe to use in a microwave which I have done many times. The bowls are really hardwearing, they get used every day in our house and have been going for just under 5 years now and although they have plenty of scrapes on them where the spoons have rubbed against the inside of the bowls they are still perfectly usable and have lots of life left in them.

        These bowls are great, they are durable, easy to wash and a decent price. My older daughter likes to play with these filling them with beads and pretending she is baking and I now allow my younger daughter to hold the bowl whilst we are both feeding her and this is made easier by having the lip on the bowl. These bowls are highly recommended.

        A great bowl from Tommee Tippee.

        ~ Tommee Tippee Explora Weaning Bowls, Lid & Spoon ~

        As many of you may be aware from my previous reviews I have got an 11 month old son, and some months back I decided it was time to start weening him onto more appetising stuff than milk, he seemed to be very hungry still and was demanding more and more bottles to satisfy his appetite so yes, he was totally ready for some 'real' food.

        After moving house in the three weeks before he was born I had pretty much got rid of everything we didn't need anymore, and that included throwing out lots of little lidded pots that I had previously used for weaning my other son as a baby, so I was in need of getting more bowls, pots and spoons for my little one.
        On a trip to Home Bargains I saw they had a good range of baby products, with branded makes not just the cheaper non branded products and included there were these brilliant Tommee Tippee Explora Weaning Bowls, Lid & Spoon sets. My set came with two bowls, both green one a solid colour the other see through, one lid and a spoon which neatly fitted into a slot on the lid with a little covering to cover the head of the spoon to keep it clean. I also purchased the heat sensor spoons I previously reviewed at the same time.

        I paid in the region of £2 - £2.50 for the set and I was very pleased with it, the bowls seemed sturdy and firm and although they were deeper than I really needed at that moment I thought they would come in useful over the coming months and I wasn't wrong.

        Initially I would make up a little bit of porridge and that satisfied my son but as the months went by his appetite obviously grew and I was putting more and more in the bowl.

        They are microwave and dishwasher safe. But I just wash them in the sink with hot soapy water, I have put them in the steam steriliser and they have come out as new.

        The handle which I once thought useful has now become somewhat a hindrance as my son likes to now make a grab for it, or flip the bowl over, resulting in me being covered in food, which he finds highly amusing, funnily enough he only seems to do this when he isn't fussed on what is in the bowl ... Clever yet naughty boy!

        I have used these for a huge amount of varied foods and haven't found them to stain or take on any foul smells. They wash well and have kept really good over the 5 - 6 months that we have had them.

        They are quite deep and my five year old will often choose to have cereal in one, well, until we got our Kellogs Tip and Sip last week that is!

        I would recommend these as they will last the duration of the weening period and for when your baby is feeding themselves.

        As these come with a lid and spoon that all click together it makes it quite useful to pop into your bag to take with you if you are eating out as baby can then use their own bowl and just pinch a little bit of your food!

        Thanks for reading :o) x

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A decent bowl which does it's job

        While stocking up on all of my weaning goodies for my baby I picked up these at Tesco's for around £3 for 2 bowls and a lid. I bought them in yellow as I thought it was more neutral to use as I already had a boy and was pregnant with my baby girl and so thought they could be used for both. Although they do do them in a variety of colours and of course blue and pink!

        The bowls themselves are quite small but as there for a baby this is fine. It's also handy as they easily fit into the changing bag in case I need to feed my baby when out and about. They also have a handle on the side, which is useful for you to hold onto while feeding your baby. I assumed the lid would be useful in case I had prepared any food for my baby I could put the lid on the bowl and take it with me. However I found this not to be the case. The lid didn't clip tightly to the bowl, and so a slight knock and it would pop off, because of this if it was ever in my bag the lid always fell off. In the end I totally gave up with this idea!

        They are made from transparent plastic and this is useful as there have been a number of times my baby has knocked the bowl from my hands or threw it off their high chair but it can't break!

        The bowls can be washed in a dishwasher and placed in a steriliser which is useful, however I found that there was another problem with them. Anything such as spaghetti bolognese would stain the bowls and no matter how much I scrubbed it wouldn't come off. This is slightly annoying as although they are clean they still look grubby!

        Although there are a couple of problems with this bowl I would still recommend them as for £3 they are useful.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Would buy again

          I bought the tommee tippee bowls when I first started weaning my daughter. I was attracted to them initially because of the design. A nice pink colour with stars etched on to them. Tommee tippee is a brand I trust so I popped them in my basket. They also come in a blue colour. I purchased mine from Asda but you can get them from pretty much anywhere

          These were £2.97 which may seem a little steep for 3 small plastic bowl but they have actually been very economical. We have used these bowls daily for 6 months and have never needed anything else. They are still in excellent condition and show no signs of wear even though they must have been washed and sterilised well over 100 times. These bowls (and some spoons) are genuinely all you need.

          The bowls themselves are very pretty, as mentioned above. The are made of a durable plastic and are just the right size for a parent to hold. They wash very easily and have survived being sterilised without warping and becoming misshapen. We have used them successfully with the tommee tippee magic mat, a great combination!

          There's not much else to say really. I would recommend these bowls to any parent looking to wean their child.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            good weaning bowls

            For weaning, I used a wide variety of Tommee Tippee products. I had used their bottles for milk feeds, as well as their microwave steriliser, so it was a brand that I was familiar with and had grown to trust. So, it seemed natural that the first brand that I looked to when purchasing bowls for feeding was Tommee Tippee.

            There are a vast range of different weaning bowls by Tommee Tippee - basic bowls, easy scoop bowls, cool and mash bowls and easy scoop bowls with lids. I opted for a pack of three basic bowls, for £2.99 a a pask of two easy scoop bowls with lid for £4.99. All bowls are available in blue, pink and green.

            The bowls are made of plastic. The basic bowls are made of a light transparent blue plastic with a pattern etched on. The easy scoop bowls are more solid plastic and the bowls are two shades of blue - one light blue and transparent and the other slightly darker and non see-through. The lid is a slightly flimsy plastic and has an indentation where a spoon (which comes with the set) lies. This has a cap which pops in place over the top of the spoon to keep it in place - and to keep in clean too. I tend to use the basic bowls at home and take the easy scoop bowls out with me as they keep clean (and sterile) more easily.

            All bowls can be placed in microwave sterilisers and can be cleaned in the dishwasher. I have found that the basic bowls can slightly warp in the steriliser and occasionally come out a slightly non-rounded shape. I think that this is due to them being made of a slightly thinner plastic - I have not experienced this problem with the easy scoop bowls. The lid on the easy scoop bowl is slightly thinner though and this does mis-shape a little (especially the cap over the spoon) if it is placed in the steriliser.
            The bowls hold a good amount of food and are a nice size for you to hold when feeding baby. They can also be placed in the microwave if you need to heat food. They are also easy to clean.

            Overall, these are good bowls for feeding baby with. Once baby progresses on to feeding themselves, they are likely to be redundant as a bowl that attaches to the highchair surface is a good idea....! However, they are relatively cheap and you will probably only require one pack so they are a good purchase.

            Loses one star because after some use the bottom began to wear and go out of shape

            While thinking about weaning my daughter I took my time looking through the vast range of products available. When it came to bowls I was looking for something that would last me a few months at least, be microwavable, portable and not too big. I eventually decided to purchase these Tommee Tippee bowls for my 6 month old daughter.


            I bought three just to last me until she was old enough to move onto eating out of her own bowl. They cost me about 5 euro each but can be bought for just £4 on Amazon right now.


            I was pleased with the quality at first. They were sturdy plastic and in lovely pink. The came with a lid that could be placed securely over the bowl. A spoon could then be attached to the top of the lid so it was easy to fit into your handbag if you were planning on going out to dinner. I often used these in restaurants when my daughter was too young to feed herself.


            There is a handle on one side which makes it easy to hold when feeding your baby. They are deep enough to fit a lot of food and mix around without causing a mess. I hate when the food comes out all over the place when mixing together but this bowl was just the right size.


            The only downside is that after a while the bottom of the bowl started to peel as it is not scratch resistant and every time I went to cut up food with anything sharp, bits of the bowl started to come away too. I was worried that this would be dangerous if my daughter ingested any but it wasn't too much. Also they became molded out of shape and it wasn't possible to fit the lid on securely after some use but they did withstand a lot of wear and tear as they were used everyday and thrown in the dishwasher after each use too.


            I would recommend these to other parents because despite them wearing they will last you a good few months and that is all you need when weaning your child!

            A prefect little weaning item

            ==Tommee Tippee Weaning Bowls==


            You are bombarded with information and products when you have a child and it is pretty ard not to get swept along buying everything left right and centre. However this item was probably one of the better ones that I bought to aid Jack in his weaning off of milk and on to solids. They call it solid food but it is far from solid as everything is mush blended down into even softer mush, so why they call it that I don't know!

            Anyhow, these Tommee Tippee bowls I purchased from my local Boots store for Jack when he was around 5 or 6 months old and I have to be honest and say that I will still use them occasionally now! They have represented such a good value for money and they may even last for the next child (if we can afford another).

            The price in Boots was around £5 I believe and I was able to get a little of that off with my discount card and of course reap the benefits of extra points as I am a member of the mother and baby club that Boots have. The price therefore is not that bad when considering what it is you get for your money.

            Not only do you get two brightly coloured plastic bowls (pink or blue - we opted for the blue ones), you also get one rubber type plastic lid (of matching colour) which fits onto the bowl and a matching multi coloured plastic spoon. This does seem to be a lot for your money and I was suitably impressed. It is really like a little starter kit for leaning and all you need is some puréed food to get you and your little one going.

            The bowls themselves are rather good as they are really rather deep which means it is easy to have room to give the food a good stir without spilling any of the contents. They also have a extra bit of plastic on the side of them to use as a parent handle, making it easy to hold the bowl in one hand whilst spoon feeding your child with the other hand (plus cleaning the kitchen floor with your feet - multitasking mothers!). They are made of a strong and durable plastic that is suitable for both the dishwasher and the microwave and will be fine to go in the steriliser too.

            The lid which is contained in the set is very handy indeed and we did use this quite a lot even though at first I didn't think I would. It was really handy when jack and myself were out and about at friends or families and we could have our food in this bowl without worry of it being too difficult to prepare and to give to him. Plus the fact that the lid has a section in the top for storing the spoon which comes with the set. It allows the spoon to be clipped in and the main head of the spoon covered up so as to prevent it from getting dirty until used and then once it is used you can slip it back in and prevent the used spoon getting old food on anything else! Ingenious!

            The spoon is the same as the Tommee Tippee plastic weaning spoons that you can buy singularly and it is a very nice one as far as plastic spoons go. The handle is a good length for the parent to hold and the head of the spoon is deep enough so that you can get a good amount to stay on it without making too much mess. The soft plastic type rubberness of the spoon ensures that if the spoon is caught against little gums that it will not hurt the child when compared to using a grown up metal spoon.

            The bowls have been washed up and used an absolute ton of times and yes they are probably looking a little bit worn and tainted from all the tomato type food stuffs we had tried out but they are still more than usable and Jack will from time to time have his breakfast in them if I am running low on other bowls. At the time when he was weaning I felt that they were the bees knee and I still do now looking back. I don't think you really need any more than two as more often than not I would wash them up with his milk bottles and pop them in the steriliser in the evening all ready for the next day.

            I had no problems with the lid either as this was easy to clip on and to clip off as well. The lid is a softer type of plastic than the bowls so it was easy to let any trapped air out of the bowl once the lid was on. The idea of having the spoon holder and cover was a brilliant one and certainly came in very handy for us.

            I would have to say that these Tommee Tippee bowls are a must have for any parent who is thinking of weaning their child. They are a good price, a good quality and last for a very long time!

            I think a top newby2 score of 5 stars out of 5 and an exceptionally high rating!

            Ooh I'm feeling all broody!


            Many thanks for taking the time to read.

            I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you.

              An essential aid to weaning

              Having successfully weaned two boys so far, I have learnt the hard way that it is possible to spend over the odds for fancy items and accessories when, usually, something basic and simple will do the job just as well, if not better.

              Tommee Tippee is a brand that I have come to trust over the years and this simple set of weaning bowls has only served to reinforce my positive impression. The bowls might seem pretty basic compared to some of the more fancy designs on the market but essentially these are simple, functional and durable which is exactly what you need for weaning.

              My bowls were purchased as a set of four from Toys R Us for £4.99 and are still available for the same price which is very good value considering how long these bowls have remained in use for. Tommee Tippee also supply a twinpack of these identical bowls complete with lids which would be worth considering as they would be handy for storing items in the fridge as well as transporting snacks out and about.

              As the name of the product implies, we originally bought these bowls for the weaning stage. The deep sides and sturdy lip to hold on to made these bowls ideal to mix up and then serve baby's very first tastes of baby rice and fruit and vegetable purees whilst minimising mess, as much as possible. The bowls are suitable for use in both microwaves and dishwashers and the simple single colour tones used seem to disguise and minimise any tendency to stain or discolour, unlike other types of baby bowls.

              As our children got older, the bowls continued to be used as they learnt how to feed themselves. Again, the size and design of the bowls helped to minimise mess and the little ones could use the lip as a means to hold on to the bowl whilst they spooned or picked their dinner out of the bowl. Whilst not claiming to be non-slip, the bowls are reasonably solid feeling and we didn't really experience too many problems with the bowls being tipped over or thrown, although a determined toddler would certainly be able to do so!

              Our youngest is now three years old but the bowls are still in daily use in our household. My son actually uses one of these bowls for his breakfast every morning. With kids, I find that the bigger the bowl they are given, the more they insist on putting in which can lead to a lot of waste. These bowls are more than adequate for my three year old's morning cereal without any unnecessary waste. Likewise, we also use them for perfect sized portions of things like pudding, ice cream and even for nibbling on sliced bananas, sweets or crisps. In a small bowl, it looks like our son has much bigger portions, which can be handy when he is eating something fairly unhealthy!

              Our current bowls have certainly proved themselves to be incredibly versatile and hardwearing. For hygiene reasons, I'm intending to buy a new set for the new baby as these are really such a great product and fulfil so many functions during weaning and beyond.

              I bought these bowls because I had got the Magic Mat from Tommee Tippee and these were recommended to use with it. They cost me £3.99 from Lloyds pharmacy.

              The bowls come in packs of 4 and the colours are pink, blue and green. You can also buy them in packs of 2 but these ones have lids with them. The packs of 4 don't.

              The bowls hold 325ml and are made out of a sturdy plastic. They are suitable for using in the microwave and dishwasher. They can also be used in any type of steriliser and they are easily stackable when being stored.

              The edges of the bowls have a small lip which is handy for wiping the spoon after feeding. The bottom of the bowl has a rubber edging and is non slip. The bowl is lightweight so the non slip aspect helps to prevent little accidents!

              The bowl has a small handle on the side which is useful for holding the bowl whilst the baby is eating. I sometimes use these bowls for snacks for toddlers and the handle makes it easier for them to carry it.

              I have found these bowls to work well, in all honesty the only reason I bought them was because they work with the mat but they work well on their own. they aren't huge and don't hold a lot for older babies but they are more than adequate for babies who are weaning.
