Let the Scooping, Shoveling & Slurping Begin So your toddler wants to eat like a big kid but doesn't quite understand the concept of pokey tines that can make holes in things other than food. No problem. Our flatware works as well as the grown up version but is designed with toddlers in mind. And see the cute little handles? They're designed for that "hammer grip" kids love so much. Look out, peas and carrots. Your days are numbered.
