The mum in us comes over all Graham Taylor about this plate (“Do I not like that!”). If you don’t get the football reference, you can instead nod your head as you become your own mother and shout “WE DO NOT PLAY WITH OUR FOOD.”
Encouraging kids to play with food = wrong; right? WRONG!
The Food Face Plates by Fred & Friends (which come in a Mr and a Ms version) make us laugh so much, we laugh in the face of what our mother taught us. We don’t just want one for our kids, we want one for ourselves. We’re even thinking of bringing them out at dinner parties (Take that, Delia!).
It’s a plate that’s like Mr Potato Head, except you use food to give him hair, a beard, a hat, goofy teeth…whatever.
Perhaps wait til you’ve established at least basic table manners before letting the kids get their hands on these and until then enjoy hours of childish fun yourself.
