These bowls are absolutely adorable. They're the perfect size for a toddler to use, hold, and carry. Not only do they look good, they are good for the environment because they're 70% biodegradable so I feel good knowing that I am doing my part for the environment. They work great for both hot and cold foods, but is not microwave safe which is fine in my household. The only negative I see is that they don't send you two matching bowls, so that can be a problem if you have multiple children who fight over the designs of the bowls.
