In many households, nighttime is busy, busy, busy with bedtime routines. But the meditating lions on these gorgeous BPA-free plates from Smiling Planet will help awaken your child's love for the brilliant cosmos and remind us to look up once in awhile! And little eyes will enjoy searching the night skies for these peaceful lions.
The unique artwork from Olivia Haviland d'Albis (of the famous Haviland China family from Limoges, France) is unlike anything we've ever seen in a child's product. Olivia's art reflects a hope for peace and inspires a connection with nature and the cosmos. As your child nourishes his body with healthful food during mealtime, Olivia's designs will also nourish the spirit.
Now for the impressive specs on this dinnerware: These plates:
Are made from 100% recycled medical grade polypropylene plastic. Medical grade polypropylene plastic exceeds the FDA standards for food contact.
Are indepently tested to ensure the plates are BPA-free (i.e., free from Bisphenol-A).
Are independently tested to ensure the plates are free from lead and phthalates.
Protect Olivia's unique designs under the surface of the plate so utensils won't scratch the artwork.
Use completely non-toxic inks.
Measure 8 inches across with a 1-inch deep vertical side to help prevent spills and allow you to use the plate as either a bowl or plate.
Are stackable for neat and easy storage, and are top rack dishwasher safe.
Perfect for outdoor dining, picnics, eating at the office, snacks, meals for kids, and so much more!
Made in the USA (California)
Measures: 8 inches diameter x 1 inch deep
At UrthChild, there hasn't been a child's product that has inspired so much excitement as these amazing plates from Smiling Planet. And it's not just us who are blown away by these plates. They have lit up the blogging world. And for good reason.
Olivia's artwork is whimsical, but presents the young child with images that are a salve for the soul. These images reflect a connection with all living things and inspire hope for a better world tomorrow. And the eco-friendly, non-toxic credentials of Smiling Planet's items show our world in such a warm, positive light--something that we all need!
If you are looking for non-breakable dinnerware for your child, look no further. Several plates are ideal for the young child. And the plates make a lovely, thoughtful, AND buzzworthy gift. But, heck, we don't think these plates are limited to children. One of us is going to send her husband to work with these plates so he stops eating off paper plates while at work!

Smiling Planet's dinnerware is independently tested to ensure it contains no BPA, no lead, no phthalates, and non-toxic inks. Each plate is made from medical grade polypropylene plastic. Smiling Planet purchases unused plastic scraps generated by the manufacturing process at a medical parts factory. These scraps are recycled into the new material for their plates. Medical grade polypropylene exceeds the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) standards for food contact, and Smiling Planet knows of no safer plastic.
For Smiling Planet founder Olivia Haviland d'Albis, fine china is in her blood. Her family, the Havilands, make the world famous Haviland China in Limoges, France. Together with her American husband Freddy, Olivia combined her expertise in china, flair for design, and passion for green living to create what Olivia likes to call her line of "fine non China". The result of Olivia and Freddy's vision is a line of earth friendly, non-toxic dinnerware for children that not only keeps them safe and healthy, but also inspires an appreciation of the natural world and encourages a peaceful, reflective world view.
We were thrilled beyond belief to meet Olivia and Freddy in New York City recently. Their line of BPA-free dinnerware was what we've been looking for since UrthChild was born. And we couldn't be happier with the results. We love this line and know you and your children will, too.
