Baby Care

Dandelion Review & Giveaway {CLOSED}

7:02 AM

***GIVEAWAY CLOSED***

Having children has been such a fun ride for me. Loving them, caring for them and being their mom is the best full-time job I could ever ask for. I especially love meal times. Their expressions when trying new foods, their reactions to new textures and tastes and especially the mess that is made in the process. Babies are sensory-led and learn and grow through what they see, taste, feel, smell and hear. Because we focus on giving them the best we can nutritionally...isn't it also good to attempt to give them the best when it comes to table ware as well? I never gave it much of a thought before I had children. But now, I think about it all the time!!!
Dandelion is a company that gives us organic options when it comes to our children's toys, games, blankets and feeding accessories. The original parent company of Dandelion is Re-Think It...which was founded in 1987, by Craig and Amy Shumway.
This phenomenal couple has developed and continues to develop new and innovative creations that will seriously impress any parent out there who is looking to "go green".

Here is more about this company...

In 2008, Craig & Amy responded to the growing parent concerns about product safety, for children and the environment; and a new division was born! The Dandelion division is the cornerstone of Re-Think It‘s exciting eco-logical campaign: to maximize our use of natural, renewable and sustainable materials and to Re-duce our environmental impact on the world; like you, we want a healthier life and a healthier planet….The Dandelion collection offers you both! We feature an, earth-friendly product line, including rattles & teethers, developmental & plush toys, diaper bags and feeding items. Our products and packaging are made from organic fabrics, corn fiber stuffing, corn starch PLA, and re-cycled materials.

One of my favorite toys that they offer is this hand-crafted Froggy...isn't he ADORABLE?!?!? If you are the type of parent that likes to give your child a "lovey", this may be your child's next favorite toy!! Oooooooooo...I could just SQUISH him!!! :) :) :)
Anyway, moving right along here. For this review I was sent the Infant Feeding Set. This bowl and spoon combo is so cool!
First of all spoon is 6" long which is a HUGE plus for me! I hate getting baby food on my hands while dipping a spoon into the jar or bowl. It looks nasty enough without me having to wear it and get all mushy and sticky!!
The bowl itself is divided so you can have two separate foods in one dish. I LOVE this as I usually serve fruit and a vegetable for Jacob's dinner and ALWAYS end up with two bowls. This really helps me to save space on our already-small dinner table. Plus, I can switch between the two foods with very little mess. Also, see the little tab on the end of the bowl? That is a handle so you can easily maneuver the bowl! How clever!! I LOVE IT!!!!!
This Infant Feeding Set is made from a unique corn bioplastic which is natural, BPA free, PVC and Phthalate free. Corn is also a renewable and sustainable resource. Great to know that this dish is so naturally made!!

Along with this Infant Feeding Set, Dandelion also carries dolls, teethers, diaper bags and clothing. All prices are VERY reasonable and the product is super cute!! The Infant Feeding Set is only $6.99!!! GREAT PRICE!!
(My happy little guy...after finishing his dinner with his new dish!)

So, in my opinion...Dandelion is a fun, organic and delightfully affordable company! I LOVE the dish and spoon that I received and have used it many times since. I would definitely recommend Dandelion to all moms, caregivers and parents who care about the special little ones in their lives!

Dandelion has graciously offered to give away one of these Infant Feeding Sets to one of you! YEAH!!! Once again, here are your easy peasy entry options!! :)
