My son loves all things Elmo, so when I saw the **The First Years Sesame Street Feeding Set **with Elmo and the Cookie Monster characters on it, I had to buy it. The packaging states that this feeding set is for babies 9+ months old. The set includes the following four pieces: - Deep-sided bowl - Sectioned plate - Stainless steel fork with plastic handle - Stainless steel spoon with plastic handle All of the pieces are dishwasher-safe, but not microwave-safe. The plate is a perfect size and I like that it has two sections to it. A picture of Elmo and Cookie Monster reading a book are in the center of the plate. The bowl is nice and deep to help with spills and it has a picture of Elmo at the bottom of it. Both the fork and spoon have a picture of Elmo on the handle. The packaging states that "the educational organization behind Sesame Street, puts the proceeds it receives from sales of its products right back into Sesame Street and its other projects for children at home and around the world." Since Sesame Street is broadcasted on public television, donations are what enable my son to be able to watch it every morning, so I feel good knowing that the proceeds of this feeding set will go back to Sesame Street. My only complaint is that this isn't microwave-safe.
