There are so many products out there for our babies and toddlers. It is pretty remarkable the things we have nowadays. The “stuff” can add up pretty quickly and, as we all know, it doesn’t always work to our expectations. Not to mention that our babies and toddlers have strong preferences as to the type of cup they use, which fork works best, etc.
So, needless to say, I was skeptical when I received these products from Oxo Tot, but I’ve also heard great things about Oxo Tot products, so we went in with an open mind!
As soon as I took these items out of the box, Caroline was playing with everything! She was so excited, and so was I! There were some really neat items in this bundle that we received. After using them, we have nothing but good things to say!
Oxo Tot Freezer Storage Containers
Oxo Tot Grape Cutter
Oxo Tot Plate with Removable Training Ring
Oxo Tot Roll up Bib
Oxo Tot Fork and Spoon Set
Oxo Tot Twist Lid Water Bottle for Big Kids
Oxo Tot Flippy Snack Cup with Travel Lid
Caroline is just starting to really use a fork. We had purchased some pretty inexpensive plastic reusable forks that we loved. I have to say, once we tried the Oxo Tot fork, my mind was changed. A metal fork in general is much more conducive to them actually stabbing the food and being successful. The handle on this fork is nice and thick and gives Caroline a lot of control. Her fork using skills instantly improved just by giving her the right type of utensil to use!
Her personal favorite items, are the water bottle and the snack cup. She sees them and gets extremely excited! She is 15 months old and handles both great. The water bottle can leak water through the straw if it is tipped, as it is made for older children, but Caroline loves it, so we just watch her with it. The snack cup seemed a little hard to me, but she uses it easily and it doesn’t seem to hurt her little hands like I thought it might. We put frozen peas in it and they do not spill out unless her hand is holding it open! Can’t prevent that! LOL
Mama’s personal favorite is the grape cutter. Yes that’s right, the grape cutter. This is the item that would have been last on my list to purchase. I never would have purchased this- ever! It seems like a waste of money when I can simply cut the grapes myself. Well, that was my opinion until I used it. It is amazing. So fast and fabulous! It is annoying to cut grapes, and we need to since they are a choking hazard. This cuts them in a second and is so convenient. I am so glad that we have this in our house!
The plate is going to be a great little appetizer plate for Caroline when she’s a bit older and understands the concept of dipping! I think she will be ready for dipping just in time for summer! I am so excited to make some healthy dips with Stonyfield Yogurt. I have my eye on this healthy Avocado Yogurt dip!
