Monkey! – Miss J, 1
As Miss J (now 22 months) develops into an independent little lady – honing her fine motor skills and handling her cutlery with ease – we’ve started to introduce elements to her life that give her a sense of ownership. One such item is this fine bone china dinnerware set from Colourful Dove.
The set pictured comes in a presentation box and is part of the Safari Range, which also includes Elephant, Crocodile and Lion sets, each sporting equally striking, single colour designs.
The plate is about the size of a side plate, while the little bowl is perfect for a toddler/preschooler portion of salad or cereal, and the beaker is a good size for little hands.
The whole range is microwave and dishwasher safe, which means they should fit well into your family routine, and I can’t imagine many kids not loving the bold, friendly designs.
Worth noting, though, that the Monkey set is light blue, rather than the darker, more royal blue shown on the Colourful Dove website. That’s not an issue at all for me, but might matter if you’re a stickler for a perfectly matched colour scheme.
The gift sets can be ordered from Not on the High Street for £24.99, or you can choose to buy a single plate (£8), bowl (£7.50), beaker (£7.50), or 4 beaker set (£27.50).
Overall, I think the Colourful Dove Safari Range is really rather cute – perhaps a little pricey for an everyday purchase, but perfect as a gift.
