“The Emondo Kids plate set is the epitome of beautiful. It is both elegant and fun to look at and super smooth and cool to the touch. My children were mesmerised by this plate, happily eating whatever was placed in its clouds or along the lines of the rainbow. The cloud egg cups fit perfectly into the cloud compartments or otherwise they can be used separately.
The design and compartments of this plate make even the simplest meals look like a masterpiece, which for a busy mum with one very fussy eater, is an absolute blessing. My fussy eater is also a whirlwind and will side swipe his plate and send it flying as soon as he’s stopped eating. Not with this! This amazing plate also has a large silicone ring beneath it which forms a very firm suction grip onto the table. My son can’t budge it which is such a relief!
My only hesitation with this beautiful plate is that the lines for the rainbow have been cut into the wood rather than branded like the logo. This does mean that there are grooves across the plate which can’t quite properly be cleaned if you’d served something with sauce/ liquid. Also, due to being a natural material, the bamboo does need to be looked after properly. It is therefore not to be put into the fridge, left to soak, be put in the microwave etc. and has to be washed and dried properly as well as being re-oiled occasionally. A small price to pay for the most stunning dinner plate there is!”
“What a fun and beautiful plate! I filled it up in the rainbow shape of course and my toddler was so excited. “It looks so pretty” he said. The rainbow shape and the three compartments actually helped me think about providing a rainbow of food colours for him to eat which was a great prompt. He was excited to carry his plate to the table and show off his meal – eating with enthusiasm. I will use the plate for more “special” occasions or weekly treats as I’m likely to ruin it as it can only be hand washed (time poor in this house) I have some concerns about the grooves of the rainbow and how I’ll clean it (maybe a little brush) The suction worked lightly on our table but I couldn’t get it off the kitchen bench – so of course it depends on the surface you use. Lovely plate for children of all ages.

“This is such a cute product! Who doesn’t want to eat out of a rainbow, and a bamboo rainbow at that?! Again (see my review of NatureBubz plate), giving my baby a non-ceramic plate to eat out of is new territory for me. I’ve always followed Montessori guidelines and given bub the same ceramic plates and bowls as the entire family eats from.
But I’ve let my hair down with this product! And I’ve had so much fun cutting up fruit and veg and arranging it into patterns in the shape of a rainbow and filling the clouds with dips. My only concern is with the ridges in the rainbow – I worry that tiny bits of food could potentially get stuck in there, and given this product can only be handwashed with cold water it might be difficult to get out. That aside, the suction on the back is pretty awesome – it keeps the plate stuck down tight much to the frustration of bub. A really cute, fun little plate!”
“LOVE LOVE LOVE this bamboo plate! Words cannot express just how divine this plate is, my kids would have loved this at meal time. I reluctantly gave this plate to my gorgeous neighbour whose daughter fell in love with it instantly. I think I considered having another baby just so I could keep it! My teenager even commented on how awesome the plate is. On looks alone this plate is hard to beat. Sustainability? Even harder, it’s made from 100% Bamboo with a silicone suction.”
“Really enjoy using this product, great quality and fun for my kids. I love that it is made from bamboo over a plastic and very durable.”
