The whole "open wide for the veggie rocket ship" trick is a lot easier to pull off with these fun Cubetensils. Would they help make mealtime a blast around your house?

It's a cute design and more safe for being BPA and PVC free. But it's made in China, which is the main reason I don't like this, especially for Uncommon Goods to sell. Nothing against China or their manufacturing, but I think Uncommon Goods should focus instead on more local artists.

This looks cute! I'd like to see it in several designs so you could buy a whole set for a child.

I'm always trying to find new and interesting ways to get my kids to eat their dinner- this product would make it so much easier!

Danielle

These would be so great for little kids whether for a birthday party, play date, or just to add a little more fun to everyday meal time!

Erika
Vote: Thumbs up!

I think this is very cute idea! But on the other hand, kids might get distracted on actually eating!!

Colors and kids, how can you go wrong!

Kids can now play with their utensils instead of their food!

I'm skeptical about this item. I would need to see the price, because it wouldn't take much for this to become "cute, but too expensive to be worth it". Also, what I love about Uncommon Goods is the emphasis on local designers as well as its commitment to safe, sustainable products. I *love* that this is BPA and PVC-free, but concerned that it comes from China. I would pay more for locally made products for many reasons, one being the sizable carbon footprint of traveling to the US from China.

So perfect for little hands...colorful; and cheerful. A good incentive to EAT.

I'd say "thumbs up" pending price information. My daughter would love to "fly" her food into the "hangar."

Kristi

I've seen designed children's utensils elsewhere, and making manipulative handles for use during mealtimes seems counter-productive to encouraging children to eat--one more thing to distract them.

These are amazing inventions for kids to keep them at the table for dinner time!

Too distracting for little eaters!

Kip

It's hard enough to get my child to eat without having distracting toylike qualities.

Kathryn
Vote: Thumbs down!

Cute, but seems less than practical. The shape looks like it would be difficult for a small child to use and the moving parts seems like they would be a pain to clean.

Elisse

Cute, and clever for kids, but made in China. :-( Please find something fun like this that's made in the USA!

Toys and utensils should be two separate things.

I can't support items manufactured in China. Please offer us goods made in our own country so we can support our economy.

Bethany
Vote: Thumbs down!

this makes me wonder if kids will play more with these than eat their food.

Mary
Vote: Thumbs down!

I think you would have a hard time getting your kids to actually eat. They would be too busy playing.

Jamie

Not locally made and seems like those teisting blocks would become a hotbed for ickiness. Plus, the design isn't really that interesting. Each side is pretty much the same. Nice idea, but doesn't really work in implementation.

Joy
Vote: Thumbs up!

The only potential limitation I see is if the pieces detach - that could be a choking hazard. Or if they don't, then you don't have as many combination possibilities. My boys would love these either way though! I'd definitely have to get 2 sets to avoid favoritism. =)

I get the idea, make eating fun for kids. But it's hard enough to get kids to eat sometimes, this seems like it would add to their distraction.

Lauren

Absolutely LOVE these! My nephew would have a blast playing with these during dinner time. Anything that helps that process be a little more entertaining is always appreciated by mom as well!

Chris

The plastic on these type of utensils always break off the stainless steel. Plus forks cannot really grab the food. They are cute, but not really practical

Not for children under 3 years?

jaque

Tons of fun! My 3 year old would love it. Unfortunately, it would probably be more than I am willing to spend on a child's utensil set

Thumbs up on being food safe but it would encourage playing with food or playing while eating.

Jennifer

kids will love this

Jennifer
Vote: Thumbs down!

I like the idea a lot, but don't care for the choice of image/theme. There are many other options that would make for more interesting combinations than slightly varied rocket ships.

A fun way to inspire your children to use utensils when eating.

I love that this inspires imagination in children, and yet looks easy to clean and store.

Okay, another reason for a little kid to be distracted during meal time? This Grandma thinks this is a set-up! Let's keep toys and utensils seperate! And "made in China"? I think we've got quite enough stuff from elsewhere for sale in the USA!

"Choking hazard"? On children's silverware? Really? Why are these even being considered?

Kathleen
Vote: Thumbs down!

Pretty common for kids and also made in China (sadly too common).

Bridget
Vote: Thumbs down!

I have to agree with others. Although its cute its made in China and like others said nothing against China but I would like to focus on more local products. Thats one of the main reasons I come to this site.

Cassie, UncommonGoods Community Moderator

Thanks for the feedback, everyone! We just wanted to jump in and explain the warning on this product. Since the silverware is made from small pieces that could be forced apart we've included the warning. The pieces are not intended to be separated, and aren't easily detached from the fork and spoon--but could pose a choking hazard if they were to come free.

Half of the trouble of getting kids to eat is getting them NOT to play at the dinner table; this would only exacerbate the problem.

Allison

I think the moving parts would make these tough to clean. Plus, given there's a choking hazard for children under age 3, I think they'd be completely impractical. It's those little ones that would probably have the most interest in this.

I hate that it's from China and not handmade...or at least USA made. We need to support our local economy.

Any utensil that has a choking hazard should not be sold.

Anita
Vote: Thumbs down!

Really cute idea, but not only is it not locally made, it shouldn't be used by a toddler. Utensils that would be this appealing to a young child should be safe for the young child to use.

Not for children under three...great way to learn dexterity? Really?
