I love items for kids that are stylish and fun, but more importantly, I love items that can take something like mealtime and make it an opportunity to learn and develop properly.
Recently, Team Mom introduced me to mOmma, an innovative collection of cups, plates, and utensils that are not only unique and stylish, but also functional… and fun! Their unique shape allows cups, forks, and spoons to rock back and forth. Not only does this keep kids entertained during meal time, but it also helps keep spills at bay. Another great feature? The collection comes in two color choices: brilliant orange or vibrant green, and all of their items are PBA and phthalate-free and completely dishwasher safe.
I had the opportunity to test out the mOmma Non-Spill Cup, the mOmma Cup with a Straw, a mOmma Warming Plate, Spoon, and Fork, and the mOmma Wash.
We’ve used these items quite often since receiving them, and I can’t get over how much Parker loves them, or how much they’ve encouraged him to feed himself. My absolute favorite item is the mOmma Cup with the Straw. We’ve been trying to get out of the sippy cup stage, so this has been perfect! I love that it doesn’t spill, and Parker loves that he can rock it back and forth. He laughs so hard every time he does it! It’s hysterical.
I also love the Developmental Meal Set that included the warming plate, the spoon, and the fork. The spoon and fork have handles that are completely round. I thought that this would discourage Parker from using them, because they’re pretty big for his tiny hands, but I was wrong! He loves them, and he won’t put them down. He’s really gotten good at scooping up his food and feeding himself. It’s fabulous! The warming plate is fabulous, too, because it’s got separate compartments for main and side dishes. And, the bottom is textured just right that Parker can’t scoot it off the table and throw it on the floor when he’s done with it. (I love that!)
The Non-Spill Cup is really, really cute, and I’m definitely holding onto it for when the new baby we’re expecting is ready for sippy cups. The only issue I had with it was the fact that the lid is so hard to get on straight. It doesn’t spill if it’s not on straight, but Parker had a very hard time holding it. I’m wondering if there’s a trick to getting it on right? If you know, would you let me know?
The mOmma Wash is awesome. It’s the perfect size and shape to quickly and easily clean the mOmma items, and it’s just as cute as can be. I smile every time I see it sitting on my kitchen counter. Parker loves how soft the bristles are, and in fact, he loved it so much, that he slept with it the first night we took it out of the box. Silly boy.
Overall, I am quite impressed with the entire mOmma line, and will definitely be adding more items to our collection before the new baby arrives.
