I have been using Munchkin Click Lock™ feeding cups with my 3 year old for a while now and found them very well made, so I know I can trust the good quality products from Munchkin and I was really happy to get the chance to try out the new Disney range. All of my boys love it when they have characters on their plates and bowls, to add a bit of fun to meal times! I chose a Mickey Click Lock™ Flip Straw Cup and a Winnie the Pooh Blue Toddler Dining Set for my youngest (22 months) to try out.
These are all very well made and look great. The character designs are lovely and bright. The dining set includes a plate with 3 sections on it, a small sized toddler bowl and a set of toddler sized spoon and fork. It’s really good value as you get so much! The plate and bowl have some grip on them to make them non slip, which is ideal if you have a slightly clumsy toddler. I do end up with food all over my kitchen floor from time to time but I have not so far with these. Because he likes the characters, my little one is also less likely to chuck them on the floor on purpose – which he has been known to do with his dinner on a couple of occasions! In fact he was a bit cross when I had to take his plate away once he had finished, because he was quite attached to it!
As you can see the plate with sections is ideal for separating the different foods, make it easy for your child to see what is there and easily tackle the meal. In the pic you can see my son’s lunch with a keema pastry, some cucumbers and a bit of roti. There is plenty of space on the plate for everything, and it is a nice size.
The different sections come in even more handy if they have any “wet” foods on the plate, as you can see here my son had some pasta with sauce for his lunch, along with a babybel and a few more pieces of cucumber. He won’t like it if the pasta sauce goes on the other foods, so this is ideal to keep everything in its place.
The bowl is on the smaller side. For a slightly younger toddler it will be ideal for their lunch if they are having a small portion and it is also an okay size for a small portion of porridge or cereal. I found it a great size for a portion of chopped fruit as a snack or after lunch.(Note: If you like his bib it is from Cornish Daisy and you can have a look at our review here)
The fork and spoon are a great size, very comfy for his little hands to grip and hold. He had no problems using these.
Here’s the Mickey Click Lock™ Flip Straw Cup. I was actually thinking of giving this to my 3 year old, as he loves Mickey, but then the little one wanted it and as he hasn’t tried the Flip Straw Cups before I decided to give it a go and see how he gets on with it. He knows well how to drink from a straw as he likes drinking juice boxes, and these cups are recommended from 12 months+ so they are fine for him. He managed to drink easily from it and was happy to use this cup. This is 9oz which is a fraction smaller than the other Click Lock™ Flip Straw Cups we have. This seems better for my little one as it is a more manageable size for him. It is spill proof which is a big plus for me as I don’t have to worry about him spilling his drinks all over the house. The Click Lock™ is pretty handy as it lets you hear when it has properly closed, just to give you that extra reassurance. I have had with other cups or bottles that you think you have put the lid on, but it’s a bit skew so it ends up leaking – very annoying! Luckily that won’t happen with these.
All of these products are BPA free and are fine to go in the top shelf of the dishwasher.
