This is a fun little utensil set for your toddler. Our 18-month-old loves the little mini-sized spoons and forks, as she gets to be like mommy and daddy. The little tools like these definitely seem more user-friendly for them. These seem slightly heavier than some of the other sets that we have, this is just an observation and does not seem to be a pro or con as she is still able to use them the same as all of her others. They are shaped like whales and even have little blowholes on the top which we thought was a cute and fun detail. I like that they come in the little plastic box, that way we can easily take them out with us or even just keep a set in her diaper bag. It is a cute little add-on gift to add to a baby shower gift I think since it does come in with the travel box, and they come in quite a few different colors to please everyone. They are heavy-duty silicone and while it doesn't say whether or not they are dishwasher safe, but we put them in our baby basket on the top shelf and they turned out just fine. We are very pleased with the set and would definitely buy it again.
