Source for Dish set for granddaughter

Posted by Gata (My Page) on

I am looking for a nice "starter set" type of thing for my soon to be toddling granddaughter: matching bowl, cup, and plate. I do not want plastic. Can anyone recommend an on-line store that might have such a thing? I cannot find anything locally. Thanks!

That is a tough one. If it is for real daily use, I would rather have plastic. My DD has several great melamine sets that she has used since she was in a high-chair and even after dishwasher, they look like new. If it is to be a tea set or something that is for looks and for play when she's older, then I would be ok with porcelain, but you said she is pre-toddler, so that's a tough call.

Try Lillian Vernon. From time to time she has good porcelain child's dishes.
Here is a German tea set that is reasonably priced.

Another good company is Sensational Beginnings. This is melamine, but I think it is too cute!

Some Corning ware outlets have sets also, as do some major department stores. Corning ware does have an email site.

Fiesta Ware has wonderful children's sets...from toddler to small tea sets with cups, saucers, etc. And..this might start her on a path to collecting these dishes in her adult life. That is what "I" am doing with my granddaughters. I got a Toddler Set for my grandson also...that he can use and then save for "his" children.

The classic child's set is Royal Doulton Bunnykins. Yes it's pricey, yes it's fine china, but it's sturdy, the bowl I gave my now 10 year old gransdon is still being used by his younger brother.
Any jewlry store should have it, or discount stores, on line try Ross Simons ( look in google for the URL) or many others.
