With all of the concerns about bisphenol A (BPA) in baby bottles, I've become concerned about the plastic dishware my children use. Searching the bottoms of the plastic dishes for recycling codes to no avail, I discovered that in very small writing they say "not intended for children under three." Hmmmm, this standard line is usually reserved for toys with chokeable parts, but what is chokeable about a plate or a bowl? I suspect the warning has too do with the materials, as the new SF law bans certain plastic toys for children under three. We started using our eclectic mix of ceramic bowls and plates with our children, but they have broken a few since we made the switch. Magic Cabin offers a great alternative to plastic children's dishes with the Bunny Family Dish Set
icon. According to the product description by Magic Cabin, "The porcelain enamel dishes are chip-resistant, oven and dishwasher safe, and practically indestructible! Gift-boxed set includes plate, one-handled mug and bowl with plastic lid." My children love them! My daughter has been taking the bowl with its plastic lid in her school lunch every day. The images of the bunnies are delightful!
