These are great dishes for a toddler. The biggest problem with most melamine kid’s dishes on the market seems to be durability. I’ve tried a couple different brands only to end up with cracked plates or bubbling, peeling decals etc. after very very short periods of time. So far the Skip Hop dishes are proving to be much more durable. I haven’ t noticed any scratching, fading or bubbling of the images, even washing daily in the dishwasher. They are also heavier than most dishes and actually feel sturdier. Since I don’t care to buy new dishes – and add the old ones to the landfill – durability and longevity are very important to me.
Other pros for these dishes are that they are a nice size for toddlers. The bowl is perfect for cereal or soup. The ladybug and other patterns are also really cute. My two year old loves them. Additionally they are BPA free. The description on Amazon’s website is not clear about this, however the manufacturer’s website provides this info.
