Children's homewares company Love Mae has just released three fabulous new bamboo dinner sets for little ones. The biodegradable and durable four-piece sets feature gorgeous line drawings of dinosaurs, woodland creatures, and feathers and flowers—all so appealing you may just want to play with your child's food yourself!
Love Mae’s four-piece dinner sets consist of a practical combination of one 8.7″ (22.7 cm) high-sided plate, a 6.5″ (16.3 cm) large bowl, a smaller 5.5″ (14 cm) bowl and a 3″ (7.6 cm) tumbler. The bamboo used is sourced as a waste product of other manufacturing processes, ensuring that none of this beautiful material goes to waste. It’s Love Mae’s illustrations that make the company’s product range so special, however, and the three suites of images could easily be used to spark imaginative dinnertime storytelling or even to entice a dinosaur-loving picky eater to the table.

All Love Mae bamboo dinnerware is dishwasher safe (top rack recommended) but is not suitable for microwaving or oven heating. All items are also non-toxic and FDA food-safe approved. The company recommends treating the dinnerware like melamine: it may chip or crack if dropped on a hard surface, but is otherwise very durable. Once your child has outgrown the set, Love Mae suggests gifting it on, but the entire set is biodegradable if you decide to dispose of it instead.
At time of writing the dinner sets are available via the Love Mae online store, based in Australia. The four-piece sets retail for AU$44.95 (around $33), with flat rate international shipping of AU$14.95 (around $11). The company also has an Etsy store, so keep an eye out for the products there if you prefer pricing in US dollars.
