Tommee Tippee Explora Toddler Feeding Set Review

Do you know that Tommee Tippee, U.K's number one baby feeding brand has made it debut in the United States? Infant and toddler feeding products from its signature lines Close to Nature and Explora are now available exclusively in all Toys”R”Us and Babies“R”Us stores and online at Babiesrus.com/tommeetippee. It is estimated that Tommee Tippee sells one product every three seconds in the UK and that most households with a child under two own up to 15 Tommee Tippee products. Amazing, isn't it? What has made this brand so popular, you might ask. Try one of these cleverly designed products and you'll find out the answer.


I was one of the lucky moms who have been selected by Tommee Tippee and Mom Bloggers Club to review an Explora toddler feeding set, which includes a Truly Spill-Proof Water Bottle, an Easi-Mat and two Weaning Bowls and Lid w/ Spoon. All these products are BPA-and Phthalate-free and dishwasher safe. Besides its colorful and appealing look, each product has its own unique features that make toddler feeding a lot easier. Let me introduce them to you one by one.

Truly Spill-Proof Water Bottle: Each Explora cup is progressively designed with a specific grip and soft flexible spouts to meet the needs of every age and support natural oral development. Ours is a stage 4 intended for children aged 18 months and up. It features patented advance-flo™ technology for easy drinking and unique dura-spout™ for kids on the go. Designed by a physicist, its innovative advance-flo™ Active Sensor valve provides effortless liquid flows on demand while preventing spills and leaks. My son loves the cute airplanes painted on the bottle. It's lightweight and easy to grip for his little hands. I offer my son different bottles as an incentive for him to drink more water. The Explora bottle is definitely a great addition to his collection.
Easi-Mat: This is our favorite from the feeding set! My son enjoys feeding himself, but he often finds it difficult to keep his bowl from moving around on the table. He forgot to hold the bowl still with one hand as he was so focused on getting food into his mouth with the other. As a result, I had to deal with food spills all over his high chair as well as on the floor. Easi-Mat offers a smart solution to this problem. It sticks to the table surface and holds bowls and plates securely in place with a uniquely designed suction device in the middle.While it requires no effort from the child to keep the bowl still, it's easy for the parent to remove the bowl with the release tab at the back of the suction device. It makes both my son and I happy because he now feels more in control of his own feeding process and I have less mess to clear. Yay!!!

Weaning Bowls and Lid w/ Spoon: There are a number of features I love about these Explora tableware. First, it's microwave- and freezer-safe, which means easier food storage and reheat. Second, its ergonomic shape encourages my child to grip the bowl while eating, which is an important skill to grasp for independent feeding. Third, the spoon can be securely locked into the lid, which helps keep everything in one place. The bowls also have the right size for a toddler.

Overall I'm deeply impressed with the quality and ease of use of the Tommee Tippee feeding set I received for review. The products are clearly designed with mom and child's special needs in mind and they effectively reduce mealtime mess and stress. In my opinion, that's the company's key to success.

The complete range of Explora products includes sippy cups, straw cups, water bottles, drinking cups, independent meal sets, weaning bowls, food pots and utensils for children aged 6 months and beyond. They are available at Toys”R”Us and Babies“R”Us in a variety of bright colors. Now through July 23, when you buy any Explora item (cups and toddler feeding) at BabiesRUs.com, you can get the second at half price. Remember to check the website often for special offers and discounts. If you like Tommee Tippee products, please follow them on Facebook and Twitter.
