curved toddler spoon made of FDA-approved plastic

Q: What are Kizingo products made of?

A: The highest-quality, FDA-approved, dishwasher-safe plastic they can be.

All of our products are made from FDA-approved BPA/PVC/Lead/Phthalate-free Profax 511 (aka: polypropylene, aka: plastic).

During the design and manufacturing processes, we tested a number of different materials - all plastic co-polymers - and selected the best one we could to balance safety, feel, and manufacturability. One day we may explore other materials, so keep coming back to see what new products - and materials - we're offering!

Q: Can I put your products in the dishwasher?

A: Heck yeah!

Can you imagine a toddler spoon or plate that you had to hand wash? Our products are designed for parents, by parents, so yes ... they are dishwasher safe. We wouldn't recommend putting them in the microwave, though, although it won't ruin the utensils or tableware if you do.

Kizingo Curved Baby and Toddler Spoons are Handed for Left or Right Handed Eating

Q: Are your spoons really handed?

A: Yup. Although we have observed children using our spoons with both their right and left hands, the current spoon design is specific to a particular hand. It works best when used that way.

Q: What if I get the wrong item?

A: Let us know, we'll make it right.

Kizingo's curved baby and toddler spoons are designed for left or right handed eaters

Q: How do I know if my child is left or right-handed?

A: You might not know ... yet.

Kids develop hand preference around their 3rd birthday, if they haven't shown preference already. One of co-founder's kids were all hand dominant before 3 years, and there other is left-handed! If you're not sure, we recommend either buying one of each, or a spoon for the hand that you see them using most often for eating.

Q: What is your return policy?

A: Our customers are our greatest ambassadors.

If you need to return your product, visit Returns where you will find instructions on what to do.

Kizingo baby and toddler bowls are shaped so that they don't tip over

Q: Why do your bowls look like pet dishes?

A: Because this makes them super stable. You've seen it happen, your kiddo pushes on the side of the bowl and everything inside ends up on the table. The double-walled design of our bowls means no more tipping!

Q: Can your products be sterilized?

A: It is safe to sterilize our products in boiling water, or with a UV sterilizer. Washing with warm soapy water, or running them through he dishwasher, will also clean them just fine.

Q: Can your products go into the microwave?

A: It's best not to. We know it's convenient to just pop your plate in in the microwave for a minute or two to reheat food, but putting plastic - of any kind - into the microwave is not advisable. 

Better to play it safe. Reheat your food on a different plate/bowl and use ours just for serving and eating.
