Learning to feed yourself is difficult, but it's so important and at Kizingo we believe that kids should have the tools they need to do this, successfully, for themselves. Our utensils are special because they:
Although it's not neceearily typical for baby/toddler spoons, it was important to us that our spoons be manufactured in the US. Our mold was made in the US, too, and our packaging designed and produced here as well. We feel so fortunate to have found our manufactuers (also a women-owned business!) and packaging suppliers and have had a fantastic experience working with them.
All of our spoons are made from FDA-approved BPA/PVC/Lead/Phthalate-free Profax PF511 (aka: polypropylene, aka: plastic).
During the design and manufacturing processes, we tested a number of different materials - all plastic co-polymers - and selected the best one we could to balance safety, feel, and manufacturability. One day we may explore other materials (we love the idea of introducing a wooden version!), so keep coming back to see what new products - and materials - we're offering!
Can you imagine a spoon that you had to hand wash? And then imagine only having one! Our products are designed for parents, by parents so yes, our spoons are dishwasher safe (they are also microwave safe, if you're the microwaving type.
Although we have observed children using the spoons with both their right and left hands, the current spoon is designed specifically for people who are right-handed.
BUT... we recognize how unfair this is (one of our co-founders is even a lefty!) and we DO HAVE a left-handed design ready to go into production. The problem is the price. It is very important to us that our spoons (and mold) be manufactured right here in the US, which means that manufacturing is a lot more expensive than if we made them oversees. But trust us when we say "we're working on it!"
