If you have children I'm sure you wish you could find unbreakable dishes for kids (and even us big kids could use some dishes that don't break when they slip out of our slippery post dish washing fingers). Sure there are those ugly plastic dishes but every time I grab a plate or cup for our kids I think we really need to find non plastic BPA free dishes for kids. With all the warnings about BPA leaching into our food (especially when microwaved) I really don't want that stuff anywhere near my kids. So I usually gamble and give them our quite breakable good dishes... and face the wrath of Brandi when she scolds me for letting the kids use her artsy dishes. (so far I have been lucky but if ever one should break I'll be sleeping on the couch for a month)
But where can I find BPA Free unbreakable dishes for kids?
Just today she handed me a torn out page of a Parents magazine in which they had a little blurb about Kidishes - BPA free dishes for kids, drinking glasses, bowls and plates that are made out of Duralex tempered glass.
I know you are thinking give glass dishes to my kids - yeah right! The thing is these Tempered glass dishes are supposed to be 4 to 5 times stronger than standard glass because they are made through extreme heating and rapid cooling, thus quite possibly those unbreakable dishes we've been searching for - and because they are glass dishes they are BPA free!
You can find these very tough Duralex nearly unbreakable dishes for sale at Amazon. The Kidishes often sell out fast on Amazon but you can go right to the source where you can buy Kidishes as well as a fun video showing off the seemingly indestructible nature of these dishes.
Take a peek at the vid and then go to ZoeB Organic to check out these kid friendly 100% recyclable, dishwasher safe, microwaveable, BPA free Duralex unbreakable dishes for kids (whew that was a mouthful)
You can also find a good deal on Duralex dishes for sale on eBay with a few Kidishes on there from time to time as well.
