The design of Liewood’s bamboo tableware is lovely. But in our review we find that it’s not suited to outlive a strong-willed baby or toddler that likes to test how gravity works.
Reason for buying
This beautifully designed bamboo tableware set from the Danish brand Liewood is so adorable and comes in different animal versions. Liewood’s bamboo tableware for babies and children is free from harmful chemicals and is a more sustainable (and stylish) alternative to plastic tableware.
45% bamboo fiber, 25% melamine, 25% corn powder, 5% wood fiber.
Review of Liewood Bamboo Tableware
We fell for the cute design and didn’t consider the quality and longevity of the baby dinnerware. Rookie mistake. We’ll tell why next in our Liewood Bamboo Tableware Review.
Our little one has been kind enough to thoroughly test the Liewood bamboo tableware over the course of many, many meals. The set includes a cup, spoon, plate, bowl perfect for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Liewood’s bamboo tableware is adorable, and we like that the dinnerware is lightweight and that it goes in the dishwasher. That said, our little one also likes that it’s light and easy to pick up. And constantly threw the plate and bowl down from the highchair tray, leaving a big mess after each meal.
After a few weeks, the bowl broke in two after being knocked to the ground a few times. The following week the plate was thrown on the floor and immediately broke into two pieces.
The spoon is a bit wide for our little one. Perhaps it’s better for an older toddler.
Liewood Bamboo Tableware Review Verdict
The design of Liewood’s bamboo tableware is lovely. But it’s not suited to outlive a strong-willed baby or toddler that likes to explore the effect of gravity. Also, it would have been convenient if it were microwave-safe.
In our review of Liewood’s bamboo tableware, we conclude that for little ones learning to feed themselves, we recommend buying a plate or bowl that suctions directly to surfaces, making it difficult for tiny hands to tip over.
Alternatives to Liewood’s bamboo tableware
An excellent alternative to bamboo tableware is placemats or bowls that suctions to the tray or table to keep messes in check. We like ezpz’s bendable placemats as they’re also dishwasher-safe and microwave-safe. That’s a huge win.
ezpz Mini Mat
This all-in-one bendable placemat + plate suctions to any flat surface to reduce tipped bowls/plates.
ezpz Happy Bowl
The all-in-one placemat + bowl contains the mess and suctions directly to surfaces.
