PRODUCT STORY
Ready for a summer picnic? This cheerful octopus is! With eight tentacles holding forks, knives, and spoons, he's ready to dig in and he definitely has the advantage over those of us with only two arms. So eat up before the cephalopod on your plate gets all the good stuff!

While I actually love the design, I don't think it is right for a picnic--unless it was at the beach! I'd be more likely to use it for a casual party with a seafood theme.
