My kids have their own drawer full of a hodgepodge of sippy cups, plates and bowls. Over the years, we have tried all sorts of children’s tableware made from everything from plastic to corn, stainless steel to glass. Yes, glass! You may think that glass cups and kitchenware wouldn’t be able to withstand daily use by a toddler, but that’s because you haven’t tried the Be Kind Kid Shop’s tempered glass kitchenware. It’s a safe, earth-friendly and healthy alternative to plastic dishes and cups.
Be Kind kid friendly glass kitchenware is tempered, making it 2.5 times stronger than regular glass and able to withstand a fall to the floor. It’s the perfect size for small hands to hold. In fact, the Perfect Place Setting comes in both small and large sizes, so you can order the right size for your child.
Be Kind kitchenware is microwave safe, which means I don’t have to heat foods separately and then transfer them to my toddler’s bowl. All of the cups (tumblers), bowls and plates are dishwasher safe, so I never have to worry about melted tableware (and believe me, I have accidentally melted plastic tableware in the dishwasher before). There are even more great features to tell you about using this tempered glass – it is shatter and chip resistant, nontoxic and even freezer safe.
The Be Kind Kid Shop is also Home to the Silisipper! I don’t know if you’ve tried a Silicone Silisipper Training Top on your cups, but let me tell you that these are wonderful for helping children learn to drink out of a cup. As recommended by the American Dental Association, there are no valves or spouts on the lid, so children learn to sip from the cup (instead of sucking from it). They are also microwave and dishwasher safe for easy sterilization.
The Silisippers come in bright, fun colors and fit perfectly around the top of the Be Kind glass tumblers. My 2-year-old had no problem switching from a traditional (leaky valved) sippy cup to the Silisipper. I feel like they make learning to drink correctly from a cup so much easier. The tumblers are the perfect size for young hands to hold. We love the glass tumbler/Silisipper combination!
We have had our Be Kind Kid Shop plates, bowls and glasses for several weeks now. I noticed that the glass kitchenware felt a little heavier than the dishes we normally use, but my kids don’t have any problem whatsoever picking them up and carrying them around. Now that we have been using tempered glass kitchenware, I really appreciate their sturdiness and feel like they really could withstand just about anything. Sorry, I do not want to test our Be Kind tableware to the limits – I like using it too much and don’t want to break it on purpose. That would be too sad!
One word keeps coming to mind as I think about our glass tableware, and that is Classy. The clear glass place settings look really nice at our table! There are no BPA, phthalate, lead, PVC or any other harmful chemicals in this kitchenware – so feel confident it’s a healthy choice for your children. I think anyone looking for an excellent, eco-friendly alternative to plastic kitchenware should check out Be Kind Kid Shop’s tempered glass kitchenware.
A complete set of Be Kind glass kitchenware is affordably priced ($16.65 per place setting, which includes the tempered plate, bowl and your choice of glass style and Silisipper). The items can also be purchased separately.
