A few months ago we requested a handful of everyday, busy Mamas to try the new (to Little & Loved) Re-Play range of eat ware and provide us with a little good (or not!) honest feedback!
Thank-you Rosie, Kirsten, Lucy, Samantha, Racheal, Laura and Ange for putting Re-Play through its paces, your incredible feedback and allowing us to share some of your gorgeous photos of Re-Play in action!
Here is just a few things our Mamas had to say about Re-Play:
From Rosie; My boys couldn’t be more different in their eating habits. Hugo (2.5) is that kid you dream of, he will eat anything, at five times the speed of Spencer (8 months), who fusses, cries, wants a different spoon half way through, or 'wants different dinner'! The Divided Plates have been pivotal in our dinnertime developments. They’ve made me realise how MUCH I was trying to feed my boys – particularly Spencer. I have gone from serving up an adult size bowl to a “taste” of a variety of foods. This has gone down a treat and I’m stoked to say that Spencer is now eating ALL of his dinner, even broccoli! The divided spaces of the plates not only manage portions they invite variety and inspire creativity! Our lunches are now fun! I love the fact that this range is made from old milk bottles – it’s great to know that our waste is being recycled into something we will use but beyond that, it’s the most practical dinnerware we’ve had for our kids. I'm used to falling in love with a product and then baulking at the cost but not this time, the entire range is so affordable. We will definitely be building on ours!
From Kirsten; I was surprised by how sturdy the (Re-Play) range felt, even the fork stands up really well to toddler antics. The size of each divider in the plate is perfect. I love that the tumbler is quite tall and can fit quite a lot of drink in it if needed but is nice and slim so easy for my toddler to hold, she hasn't dropped it once. Our girl (2.5) loves her Re-Play divided plate and won't eat off anything else now! I was nicely surprised by how well general grease washes off the plastic. I would highly recommend the Re-Play range. I think they are priced fantastically for what they are and not only can you rest easy having a practical piece of dinnerware that is safe for your child, you are also helping our environment. They are a firm favourite in our household!
From Lucy; My girls were very excited to get the Re-Play plates, spoons and forks delivered. It's fantastic that they are made from recycled milk bottles and yet they seem very hard wearing and sturdy. The plates are the perfect size for toddler/preschooler sized meals (lunch or dinner) - the larger section I found great for the protein and other two smaller sections for some veges. The forks and spoons are easy for them to hold. They have washed really easily either in the dishwasher or by hand.
From Samantha; We received our package the day we were flying to the UK for two months so it all went straight in the cases! My son who is 3 has eaten from it, thrown it, played with it and anything else he can think of. As a Mama the textured feel of the products are great as my son now feels confident to bring his bowl or plate out to the kitchen. The size of the bowl is perfect for little ones for breakfast pasta and desserts, the plate would ideally be a bit bigger for dinners as my son has a very good appetite, it's perfect for fruit, lunch and afternoon tea. All in all I love the range! I must add that my son has Down syndrome so the phases the children go through like throwing, takes much longer to move through with him. Re-Play will be items that I take with me to people's houses, so that I'm not worried about him breaking things!
