Tiny Tongs Review



You may recall my new product announcement for Tiny Tongs this past fall, and I have since had the opportunity to review a pair. My first impression with these utensils were that they reminded me of children’s chopsticks. You know how they roll up the chopsticks paper and secure it with a rubber band. Like chopsticks, they use a different technique for children to eat. Grabbing rather than scooping or stabbing, which can be messy and frustrating for everyone involved. 


They are also BPA, lead and Phthalate free and are non-toxic. They are ergonomically correct for tiny hands and are dishwasher safe! Just be careful where in the dishwasher you place them, because you don’t want them near the heated wires as they will discolor (ah-hem, personal experience? No….). So treat them like you would any top rack plastic, as opposed to silverware, if your silverware basket is on the bottom of your dishwasher. The recommended age range for these tongs are 12 months – 5+ years old, but anyone can technically use them. 


My toddler is still getting the hang of these, but seems to enjoy using them. She uses them in many different ways, including using the top looped portion as a kind of spoon. But why not? As long as she is eating and having a successful experience self-feeding, she can use them any way she wants. I would recommend these for toddlers and preschoolers, and heck you could even use them on a cheese or snack tray over the holidays if you have family with kids visiting. 


Background:
Tinytongs™ was founded in 2008 by Carys Bice.  With three children under the age of fiveCarys spent countless hours at the dining room table watching her children drop more food onto the floor than into their mouths. She also watched them become increasingly frustrated trying to use standard utensils when the use of their fingers, unfortunately, would be easier. Looking for a solution in her kitchen, Carys thought tongs would be an ideal solution to make mealtime more successful, less messy and more enjoyable for everyone. After launching a search to find the right utensil suitable for tiny hands and finding a void in the marketplace for any such product, she and her husband Justin developed tinytongs. The innovative, safe eating utensil is designed to grip food and keep it in place and provides for an easier way for children to get small bites of food into their mouths.
