With a new baby in the house, I was very conscious of what we brought into the house, having got rid of, sold, or gave to charity, a lot of the previous things that we had for the older two children. He was a little surprise after all, so we could almost start off with a clean slate. We got things like the pushchair secondhand, but there were things like bottles and plates, sippy cups, and other weaning items that I had forgotten that we would even need to get!
We have some Dantoy toys for Mason, which we really love. The colours are stylish, they’re fun to play with, and most of all, they are made from dantoy’s popular bioplastic line. The Danish brand has expanded their already environmentally friendly range of plastic toys, and now have a weaning kit, from beakers, sippy cups, plates and bowls. The whole range is 100% eco-labeled, which means that the toys are environmentally friendly and are free from any dangerous chemicals.
Made sustainably from sugarcane
The BIOplastic that their items are made from comes from sugarcane. The sugarcane can be harvested several times, with new sugarcane plants being planted around every six months. The fields are harvested at intervals of around 6-12 months, which is why this material used for the toys and baby items can be defined as a sustainable raw material. A bonus when you’ve got a little one but don’t want to fill the home with plastic.
Plate set for weaning
The weaning set looks great and really works well for weaning when you want your little one to try different foods, grouping different items. I have seen the divided plates before, so this is similar, but if the 2 smallest spaces of the plate are not used for food, then the bowl and cup can instead be placed in these spaces, making it more like a tray to carry food and drink together. Makes it handy when you’re a busy parent with your hands full.
The dining set has a long life, as it can be used right from the child’s first meal (the recommended age is from 0+), and from there it can be adapted as the child’s skills and motor skills develop. Mason is now 14 months, and while he is happy with his food and I’m confident in the chewing/ not choking side of things, it will be great to develop him to use the knife, fork and spoon, as he is fully just using hands at the moment.

With Danish dantoy’s quality dinnerware, Mason can explore food and have all that he needs right in front of him. The different compartments of the plate make it possible to sort the food and give a well-balanced and well-arranged meal. You could even think about mixing up different sets to have different colours for the cup and bowl, for example. The Dantoy Tiny BioBased Dinner Gift Set costs £18 from Coolshop.co.uk. I think this is very reasonable for the seven-piece set that you get, especially one that is made from such quality materials.
Have you heard of Dantoy before? It would be great to hear what you think.
