I had the pleasure of meeting some of the fine people behind Mixed Pears at the 2016 International Home and Housewares show in Chicago. It was truly a pleasure to speak with people who were so excited and proud of the products they make. I was eager to use their products and beyond pleased to see that they delivered on every promise.
First up, Bitesizers.
These wonderful little scissors are designed for easily cutting food into toddler sized bites. These are no clumsy kitchen shears! I was blown away by the quality of the blades and how easily they cut through everything from soft potatoes to steak. They are engineered for vertical use to make the job simple and comfortable. Bitesizers are the only baby food scissor to be certified food safe by NSF International.
Best yet, they come with a sheath to make them perfect for keeping in your diaper bag for meals on the go. At first I was put off at the idea that these should be hand washed instead of going in the dishwasher but I wouldn’t put my best kitchen knives in the dishwasher and that is the kind of quality I am talking about with Bitesizers. I love these scissors so much! I wish I had them when my older daughter was little! They certainly are going to get plenty of use now with my youngest girl.
Suitables – The best and only bib you will ever want.
Suitables are role play bibs that do both the jobs of bibs and dress up clothing perfectly. Suitables come in professional designs like doctor, fire fighter and astronaut (all gender neutral, thank you very much!) and wildlife like a parrot, clownfish and panda. Much like the Bitesizer scissors these bibs are of tremendous quality. They are long sleeved, have a pocket for catching spills, a Velcro closure that won’t snag and pull baby hair. We used our suitable bib for dinner time and it passed the spaghetti test! Our daughter’s clothing was perfectly clean and protected by the Suitables bib!
Suitables are made of soft fabric that is water and stain resistant. They can be wiped clean or washed and hung dry. The brilliant colors and fun, realistic designs are sure to inspire your child’s imagination and make mealtime fun. Or, if your child is anything life mine, she’ll want to wear her bib around the house for the rest of the day “flying” around and making parrot noises!
Both of the Mixed Pears products I had the pleasure of trying out far exceeded any expectations I could have had. I look forward to any products they come out with in the future. This terrific company’s pride shows it quality and creative products.
