The inspiration for our Toddler & Beyond range began as we moved through the feeding journey with our eldest daughter. As she grew to be a toddler, we found that we were looking for dinnerware that was suitable to her stage of development, that was safe, practical and suitable for toddler sized portions.
At around 18 months she now understood not to deliberately drop her dinnerware on the floor, but there were still accidents e.g. plates getting knocked off the table and cups getting dropped etc. She was also now wanting to help clean up, by carrying her dishes to the kitchen after mealtime. This meant that for our new range the items had to be soft in case of any slips or trips, flexible so they won’t break when dropped and of course they also needed to be of the highest quality and look gorgeous too.
We weren’t able to find any suitable pieces for our range, so we started designing our own. With the aim being to develop a practical range for toddlers, that is basically similar to what mum & dad would use at mealtime, however they would be toddler sized and with added safety considerations given the little accidents that come with toddlers learning and development.
