Buying a dinnerware set for my oldest was a little sad for me. I was being forced to admit my first born was growing out of the baby stage and already growing up on me. Admittedly, it’s ironic how plates, cups, bowls and silverware can muster up tears. But, for me they did. I searched forever trying to find A) a good deal (because I am cheap) and B) something that was durable.

I found a 36 piece set from Ikea on amazon at an amazing price and decided to go for it. That was in 2012 and we are still using the exact same set over 4 years later. My significant other and I often use the bowls and plates when we grab a quick snack as well.
The set comes with 36 individual pieces which includes a cutlery set (6 knives, 6 forks, 6 spoons); 6 bowls; 6 plates and 6 cups. It’s BPA free, microwave and dishwasher safe. The plastic that they use is very strong, and of excellent quality. The colors are pretty and my daughter loves to mix and match them.
Won’t bend or wobble. My 5 year old loves using the “knife”. She’s recently gotten into making her own sandwiches and likes to cut bananas. She hopes one day to graduate to an “adult” knife. For now she is happy with her “kid knife”.
Are extremely durable. Don’t ask how but she has ended up stepping on them quite a few times and they don’t even bow in when she does. The edge comes up about 1/2 an inch and it keeps stuff from flying out like rice, peas and who am I kidding her whole meal. She’s still a messy eater.
Bowls & Cups
The bowls are perfectly sized and deep enough to hold a kid portion of cereal with milk or a salad. Easy for little hands to grasp. The cups are great to. The exterior plastic has some traction to keep it from slipping out of little hands.
All in all this is a great set that I am sure will be used for many more years in our house. Want to try them out? Get your little one a set here and then let me know how you like them.
Do you already own these? What do you think, leave a comment and let me know if you love them as much as I do.
