Baby Pinch Boutique Fine Bamboo Spoon Gift Set in Keepsake Box Review

Baby Pinch Boutique Fine Bamboo Spoon Gift Set in Keepsake Box Review

At twenty months old, my toddler son loves feeding himself at meals. From applesauce to peas, he insists on using a spoon by himself. If I try to feed him, he shakes his head and says, “Uh-uh.” He is a big boy, and big foods use their own spoons. However, my regular kitchen spoons are still a bit big for him to use effectively. Baby spoons work so much better. Thus, when recently offered the chance to review the fine bamboo spoon gift set in keepsake box from Baby Pinch Boutique in exchange for my honest opinion, I eagerly accepted the opportunity.

Price

The Baby Pinch Boutique fine bamboo spoon gift set in keepsake box currently retails for $35.00 with a sale price of $21.95 on Amazon. Each spoon in the set of five costs $7 at the full price and $4.39 at the sale price. The spoons are comparatively priced to other similar baby spoons made with silicone and bamboo. I therefore rate the price positively.

Design

Measuring 5.5 inches long and 1.5 inches across at the widest point, the bamboo spoons from Baby Pinch Boutique consist of food-grade BPA-free organic silicone heads and bamboo handles finished with food-safe FDA-approved grade A varnish. Lightweight, soft, and flexible, the spoons are free from toxins and plastics. The set of five comes in red, orange, yellow, green, and blue with natural bamboo handles. The silicone head is dishwasher safe and detaches from the wooden handle with a firm tug. The chunky handles and wide tips help infants and toddlers learn to self-feed more easily than with typical narrows spoons. The set of five comes with a smooth finished handcrafted box with magnetic lid enclosure.

Performance

My son insists on feeding himself at mealtimes, and he absolutely loves his new fine bamboo spoon gift set in keepsake box from Baby Pinch Boutique. I personally am a huge fan of silicone utensils, and I have slowly been replacing my plastic utensils with silicone. I also like silicone utensils with wooden handles. Bamboo is both durable and beautiful, so I feel completely relaxed with letting my toddler learn to feed himself with these spoons. He also loves using his new silicone/bamboo hybrid utensils at each meal. The five bright colors make mealtime fun and simple! The handle is chunky enough for him to hold easily but is also short enough to make maneuvering the spoon simple for little hands.

Until recently, I allowed my son to feed himself with a regular metal kitchen spoon. He did okay, getting some of the food in his mouth while spilling the rest on his highchair and the floor. With his new bamboo baby spoons from Baby Pinch Boutique, he has learned to feed himself even more neatly. The head of these spoons measures nearly 1.5 inches across, which is quite a bit bigger than my regular spoons and much bigger than traditional baby spoons. At first I worried that he could not fit the silicone head into his mouth, but he quickly proved me wrong. He easily feeds himself peas, applesauce, and even rice with these miniature-bowl-like silicone spoons. In fact, unless he is activity tossing his meals onto the floor for my dogs, most of his food now ends up in his mouth. The flexible head also bends a bit, so my son rarely misses his mouth anymore even if his aim is off slightly. I definitely agree that the Baby Pinch Boutique baby spoons are ideal for infants and toddlers learning to self-feed.

Cleaning the bamboo baby spoons from Baby Pinch Boutique is quite simple. I hate washing dishes by hand, and I must admit that I put the entire spoon in the utensil rack in my dishwasher. Baby Pinch Boutique states that only the silicone head is dishwasher safe and that the head detaches from the handle for easier washing. However, I have found that I can place the entire spoon in my dishwasher without any problems. My water heater is set to a lower non-scald temperature, and I allow my clean dishes to air dry instead of heat dry. I have not noticed any negative effects on the handles of these spoon even though I place the entire thing in my dishwasher. If you wish to follow the instructions, you can easily pop the silicone off the bamboo and wash the handle by hand, or you can wash the entire spoon with warm soapy water. Baby Pinch Boutique does advise periodically detaching the head from the handle for a thoroughly cleaning if you choose to normally wash the spoon as a single unit.

I finally love the handcrafted box with magnetic lid enclosure that comes with the set of five silicone-bamboo baby spoons. The box is perfect for storing small items. If you choose, you can keep the spoons inside the box between mealtimes. I personally have not decided on the perfect use for my box but I am leaning towards jewelry. I own a number of silicone teething necklaces that I usually leave on my bathroom counter when not in use. Using the bonus box that comes with the fine bamboo spoon gift set in keepsake box from Baby Pinch Boutique will keep my necklaces cleaner while getting rid of some of the clutter in my bathroom.
