It’s Not All Mary Poppins

Form over function? Probably, but does it matter?

Normally I do not go in for gimmicky kid-stuff, but are these not the CUTEST damned things you’ve ever SEEN???

I have yet to decide whether they would help a finicky eater shovel that food in, or whether they’d be so good for construction they’d never accomplish any ingestion. And I rather suspect that the extra length required to stick a vehicle body on the stem of the thing would increase the already significant challenge of actually getting the utensil into the mouth. Fully loaded.

But CUTE? My lord, they’re cute.

  1. Gives new meaning to shoveling the food in your mouth!
    Very cute!

    With these gadget, it might even be good manners!

  2. That bulldozer/pusher utensil is a great idea on its own! I’m trying to convince my newly 4yo that he needs to be done with finger feeding. He’s likely to become left handed because his right hand is so busy holding a fork so he has to eat with his left!

    Oh, his handedness was decided when egg met sperm. We’ll see how long it takes him to learn that forks and spoons can be more effective than fingers!

  3. Adorable! But why “for boys”? I think I’ll get a set for my daughter to share with my grandson. Her second word was BULLDOZER!!! (Her first was NO!!!)

    You’re absolutely right. I know a few little girls who would love these, too.

  6. Fun! And somehow right for the parent who makes various vehicle noises to get the food in the kid’s mouth anyhow…
