My grandson is two years old and a picky eater right now; these utensils helped to get him engaged in sitting at the table with us a bit longer. After using them once, he wanted them every time thereafter, so I recommend one set for the parents and one set for grandma’s house! I ended up also buying the construction place mat and bowl, and I can’t wait for his next visit to try them out. Oh, and my son and daughter-in-law were really happy that I’d found this set – a good gift all the way around!
Update: my son tells me that my grandson refuses to use other utensils because he loves these so much. The plate is also a great buy.
