Trainer chopsticks

Chopstick KidsMy friend, Amanda, called yesterday and asked if I had any good recommendations for trainer chopsticks. I didn’t have any, but I figured Jenna from Babygadget would be the expert… after all, she is a trusted kiddie product reviewer, is in the food business, has two kids herself, AND is Korean. If that’s not expertise, I don’t know what is!

A search on Babygadget came up with a few different options. It seems the Edison Chopsticks are the best because the positioning loops help your kids know where to place their fingers. But because they are sourced directly from Korea, they’re apparently hard to get your hands on! The Chopstick Kids trainer chopsticks (pictured) are pretty cute and are made of dishwasher-safe, food grade silicone. And the Combi Trainers are good because they allow for a three-step training process.

Party People ChopsticksLastly, a search on Amazon turned up a set of cute Party People chopsticks, which are really simple, but great because adults can use them too! Which, if you’ve seen my chopstick technique, you’d understand why I’d be in to those!

Wow! The Edison chopsticks look really awesome. My son is half-Chinese and he has a set of chopsticks in zoo animal shapes given to him by his grandmother. Pretty fun! They’re made by Hog Wild Toys and the company carries chopsticks in dinosaur, fish, zoo animal, and farm animal motifs.

At Wagamama in London they serve a good kiddie’s menu together with a pair of wooden throw-away trainer chop-sticks. Good to keep the kids busy, but even better – they are ‘training’ in a restaurant… The mess! Cute though…
I think my daughter would love the Chopstick Kids…
