A spork? What’s a spork? Before I came across this brilliant little Bambu kids spork I wasn’t terribly familiar with the concept of a spork, but I was convinced very quickly.
A spork is simply a combination of a spoon and a fork, with the two utensils combined into one handy method of moving food from plate to mouth once you’re out and about. In this case the Bambu kids spork is ideal for feeding your child when you’re on the move, and it makes it so convenient.
Sometimes you need a fork for feeding your child, and sometimes you need a spoon. But with a young child up to the age of 18 months you generally need a third hand. One for the spoon, one for the fork and one for the bowl.
Actually, a fourth hand is quite handy too, armed with a wet cloth.
The Bambu kids spork means that you are no longer required to grow additional arms, as the two utensils are cleverly combined into one. One of the questions I’m often asked is why we choose bamboo over alternatives such as wood or plastic? Clearly plastic is not an environmentally friendly solution, and whilst wood is good, bamboo is actually better in many respects.
Firstly, it grows really quickly without the use of fertilisers and pesticides, and our Bambu kids spork is made from bamboo that’s organically grown. Secondly, bamboo is a good deal tougher than wood, is heat resistant, doesn’t stain as easily and can is easy to wash. (A quick note about washing – we recommend hand washing to keep your bamboo utensils at their best. However they can be put in the dishwasher but might soften over time in the way wood does.)
If, like me, you find picnics and days out result in you running out of hands or arms, and have a picnic basket the size of your car’s boot, then why not pick up a Bambu kids spork. It will save you at least an arm, and may well help save your sanity a little too! Convenient, durable, organic, sustainable and with a great name that’s a talking point in itself!
