Put an end to the plate wars

Personalized Plates at Little UniI want the pink plate. I want the blue one. If I have to use the orange one, I’ll die, because I hate orange more than a thousand. (All actual quotes from my dinner table.)

And if Mommy has to hear the kids argue over plates again, she’s going to go berserkypants.

So here’s a beautiful and safe way to insure that you know who gets which plate. Forever.

The lovely personalized melamine plates from CMP fave Little Uni are available in eight sophisticated designs that mix backgrounds mom
will love with silhouettes the kids will adore. Trucks, owls, crowns,
stars, birds, girls, dogs, and one terrific pig will make it super hard
to choose just one. And best of all, for only two dollars more, you can
have your plates personalized with names.

With names!

The accusation, “that’s my
plate!” can finally be proven in a court of law.~Delilah

    I have threatened to throw our colored plates in the garbage many times. Who cares what color of plate they get? My girls certainly do. I am ordering these right now. Seriously, right now. If I never have to hear about it not being fair that “Libby got the pink plate two days in a row” again it will be too soon!

    Ha! One of my parenting regrets is buying a multicolored pack of kids’ plates.

    Why on earth would you buy Melamine plates for your children? Here is some info from the National Toxicology Program:
    Melamine resin, a hard thermosetting polymer made from melamine and formaldehyde, is widely used in the US in the form of kitchenware, including plates, bowls, mugs and utensils. Reports in the literature indicate that some kitchenware based on melamine resin leach considerable amounts of melamine monomer. A migration of up to 2.5 mg melamine/ 100 cm2 was observed under conditions that simulate an exposure to hot acidic foods. . .

    These dishes are not microwave safe, not recommended for the dishwasher, and toxic! Certainly not a mom-friendly item.
