Tommee Tippee Explora Bowl Review & Giveaway


During the day I watch my one year old granddaughter Emma. When the oppurtunity came for me to test out and review the Tommee Tippee Explorer weaning set I jumped right on it. We have been using some of the sippy cups and are very happy with them.

Emma is at the age where she is learning how to use a fork and spoon. Keeping her food in the bowl and not on the high chair tray or floor is a skill I have been working on with her.

There are a couple of things I really  liked about this feeding/weaning set right off the bat before I even opened the packing.

But the most important one is this........

All of the Tommee Tippee feeding products are  BPA- and Phthalate-free. 

This is a pretty important factor to me so I am happy to see that the company is looking out for the health of our children.


I really love the fact that the spoon that comes with the bowl set nests on the top of the lid and is secured in place by a cover that snaps down over the bowl of the spoon and keeps it clean and with the bowl.

I can't tell you how many forks and spoons I have lost in the past couple of months.


A little info about the company

This is the bowl set that I had a chance to review. It is actually a set of two nesting bowls, a spoon and a lid. All of the pieces snap together for easy storage. Which is another thing I loved about this set.

The only thing I did not like about this set is that the  tommee tippee® easi-mat did not come along with the bowl set. You can purchase it separately but it would have been nice if it came with the Weaning set as they are meant to be used together.
