Forks that do what forks are meant to do

Oh, we're done with all that vegetable-steaming and mess, our children are cutlery-wielding, spaghetti-chomping angels... at least some of the time.

Forks that do what forks are meant to do

Izzymouse has been a cutlery-weilding child since the beginning, as she's always had a spoon fetish and she liked to wave what we were waving.

Now she's a big girl of 20 months, she naturally likes to do a lot of cutlery action herself. Her spooning technique has been pretty good for a while, but forks are a problem - they're not sharp enough. Presumably because manufacturers think they'll be dangerous. But consequently, they're bloody useless for skewering a slippery bit of penne.

We've got a set of Tommee Tippee cutlery (present), some from Mothercare with animals on them, and some plain ones I think came from Tesco. All useless.

She has more forking success with adult cutlery but obviously struggles with the length of the handle, and she will insist on holding it at the end.

Any recommendations?

I think only big stuff that would be delivered anyway - like my kitchen. We've got a long list of ikea stuff required so I'm definitely adding the cutlery to it as Bruno really likes my fork but we don't have anything small for him!

If anyone wants me to get them stuff (within reason, I'm not buying you a new bed!) then just PM me and I'll let you know when we're going and we can talk about postage etc.

Had an email today from IKea - they now do home delivery for the whole country.....a very exciting prospect for someone who lives 2 hours from one!

I'm definitely going next weekend or the one after. Seriously, if you want me to pick up stuff & post it along I'd be happy to. :D
