These are fun.

By 

from Kansas

Comments about Hefty ZooPals Funtensils:

Hefty ZooPals Funtensils are fun utensils, especially if you have children around [or if you are like me and are a 23 year old child at heart!] The most surprising thing about these is how sturdy they actually are. I expected them to just be as flimsy as normal plastic utensils, but I was wrong. These are much stronger than usual plastic utensils!

I bought these when we were having a zoo themed birthday party for my little cousin. They were perfect for the party theme! There are four different colors and four different types of utensils in each box. The kids liked these due to the fun animal shapes. I don't blame them, honestly, they are so much more fun that normal boring plastic utensils. These were also really easy for children's little hands to grip.

One great thing about these is how sturdy they are! These are much more sturdy than normal plastic utensils. Normally I end up breaking my fork off in my food. These won't break though. I was impressed.

These are a little pricey, which is why I only gave them an 8 rating. They are good for special occasions though!

Utensils that encourage kids to eat!

By 

from Florida

Comments about Hefty ZooPals Funtensils:

The ZooPals are such a fun invention, especially if you like me find yourself spending a majority of your time with small children. The Zoo Pals line of untensils are readily available as well. I have bought them at many different mass merchandisers, and they are all reasonably priced.

I use this product often with the kids that I take care of. They love the animal shapes and I love that I can add a little fun to meal times without spending too much money. I really think that the cute animal shapes that ZooPals have to offer encourages the kids to eat.

Not only are they cute and reasonably priced but they are well made. They are advertised as disposable but I have handwashed them and gotten two or three uses out of them. Sturdy disposable silverware is not something you come across often so I was pleased when I discovered ZooPals to be just that.

My overall verdict is that this product is well worth the price tag. It will put a smile on your childs face and maybe even put that little extra fun in the meal to encourage fussy eaters.

Hefty ZooPals Funtensils : Kids Love Them!

By 

from USA

Comments about Hefty ZooPals Funtensils:

The first time that I saw Hefty's ZooPals Funtensils was when I was shopping for supplies for our annual Independence Day party. I was thrilled to find utensils made just for children, since regular plastic utensils are way too big for them.

As happy as I was to find these, I wasn't nearly as excited as the kids were to use them! They loved picking out which animals to use. Each utensil has a really cute animal at the top that you hold onto as you eat. The forks, spoons, and knives are also bright and fun colors. Needless to say, they were a big hit among our younger party guests.

These are not cheap and flimsy. The plastic is thick and they would be tough to break, which is perfect given this product's target demographic! They are so sturdy that you could even probably even rewash and reuse them a few times if you wanted to.

Funtensils are a great idea for kids, and especially for parties!

Adorable Disposable Silverwear for Kids

By 

from Crystal Lake, IL

Comments about Hefty ZooPals Funtensils:

is it necessary for your silver wear to be adorable? Probably not, but if you like to indulge your kids once in a while or if you are having a kid's party it is nice to make things as fun as possible. Once in a while I will get these for my little guy because he enjoys them. The them I am referring are the Hefty ZooPals Funtensils.

Basically these are disposable flat wear that are shaped in to fun animals shapes and are made in fun colors. There are 12 different animal shapes and colors. The handles are in nice shapes that are good for little hands to hold on to. An example of some of the animals are an elephant spoon, a dolphin knife, a frog or reindeer fork, and bunny spreaders.

Each package comes with 8 forks, 8 spoons, 4 knives, and 4 spreaders.

The plastic that these are made of is god quality thick plastic and you can use these over and over if you want to, or you can throw them out. It's best if you hand wash them though if you plan on keeping them.

They are really adorable and the quality is good and when you use them with the ZooPals plate meal time is certainly lots of fun.

Comfort
They are shapes specifically for little hands, kind of hard for adults to use.

Performance
Very good, they work well.

Durability
Good quality thick plastic, can be used again or thrown away you choose.

Design
Adorable, really cute, kids love them.

ZooPals - Fun, inexpensive, durable

By 

from Big Rapids, MI

Comments about Hefty ZooPals Funtensils:

We got the Hefty Zoopals to use as extras for picnics and outside eating, but they quickly became favorites, which our two toddlers use all the time. They are technically disposable, although they are very durable, and they wash well (even in the dishwasher) and stay new-looking for a long time. We've had them for over a year, and they get a lot of toddler use, and are still in great condition. It would seem like a waste of money and resources to actually toss these. Our boys love being able to choose which animals to use at each meal, and they like to match them (or not) with the ZooPals plates. They have a nice chunky design which works well for little hands, and they are also easy for little hands to handle. They would be expensive if they were used as true disposables, but I think that they are a good value if used more often. My only complaint is that there isn't necessarily a match for each animal in each bag, they come as an uneven set, which can make for some toddler arguments.

Makes meals fun!

By 

from Gambrills, MD

Comments about Hefty ZooPals Funtensils:

Zoopals utensils make meal time fun in my house. My kids love them. It gets them involved in setting the table to have them pick out which animal utensil they want to use that night. They are dishwasher safe too, so I have used them over and over again. They are really durable and fun to use.

Hefty ZooPals Funtensils--these utensils are sturdy/colorful/fun

By 

from Piedmont, NC

Comments about Hefty ZooPals Funtensils:

**Hefty ZooPals Funtensils** are designed with kids in mind. They are packaged with eight forks, eight spoons, four knives, and four spreaders. The **ZooPals** utensils are a variety of colors: pink, blue, green, and brown. (I would like to see more colors added in the future.)Twelve different animal designs are in the collection. (I can imagine that they will expand this number over the years.)

I was particularly impressed with how strong these utensils are. They are much sturdier than typical plastic utensils, and I've been known to wash them and re-use them for my kids at home, and I am usually quick to throw away plastic utensils.

My daughters, who are usually all about pink, particularly liked the brown deer while we were camping after a beautiful buck came to visit us at the [campground][1] . They also thought it looked a little like Rudolph but without the red nose.

There is a Hefty ZooPals [website][2] with extra information about their products and lots of fun kids games.

The downside of the ZooPals Funtensils is the cost, and that is why I only gave this product four stars. We tend to be on a strict budget, but we have bought these for a couple of birthday parties. I guess they really do "make eating fun!"

**My Viewpoint:**

These **Hefty ZooPals Funtensils** are extra strong, colorful, and have impressed the kids at the birthday parties where we have used them.
