product may stay: duktig play flatware from ikea

I have three sons and one daughter, and they have all been babies. Babies have to learn how to use utensils to feed themselves, and have you ever used those insane things they sell in the baby aisles? The spoons are not so bad, but the forks are just stupid. The "tines" are so thick and blunt that they are incapable of spearing butter. I blame our Nerf world and our society of cork-forked Ruprechts. No one gets to experience natural consequences, it seems, until they get behind the wheel of a car for the first time. But that's a rant for another day.

I wanted utensils for Pinga that she could actually use, and saw these on a trip to Ikea. We love them. They are perfect for little hands and you may not believe this, but she has not speared her or anyone else's eye even once. She's far more accurate with them than Captain America is with his own utensils. That may, however, be due to his australopithecan habit of eating with his hands.

Those look awesome. I need to get some of those. My kids would be so happy about those.
