When my son was a toddler, we accumulated an impressive collection of cartoon character plates and bowls. For some reason, letting him choose the plate for his meal made it easier to get him to try a wider variety of foods. I know he would have loved these adorable personalized dishes from Sarah + Abraham.
What I love about these plates and bowls is the level of customization they offer. Not only can you personalize the product with your child’s name, you can choose the background colors, what the child is wearing, and the appearance of the child.
By selecting the proper hairstyle, hair color, eye color, eye shape, and skin tone, you can create a cartoon image of your son or daughter. There is even an option to add glasses if needed!
The personalized plates are 10-inch melamine plates. The bowls are have a 5-inch diameter and hold 20 ounces. Both products are dishwasher safe and BPA free, so they are fully functional in addition to being really cute.
Although these would certainly be great to buy for your own child, I think they’d be cute as a fun but practical birthday gift. You could fill the plate with cookies or add some of the child’s favorite wrapped candies in the bowl.
When buying from Sarah + Abraham, you can feel good about supporting a mom-owned business. Sara Tams, the owner, lives in Naperville, Illinois with her husband and two children: Jack and Emma. She began her business by starting an Etsy shop in 2007.
