With three kids, my sink is inevitably full of dirty dishes. Instead of spending my day elbow-deep in suds, I’ve made an effort to stock our cabinets with enough dishes to last multiple meals. When I happened upon Colourful Dove‘s adorable and educational line of dishes, I was excited to add them to the stock! Drawn in by the bold colors, I was thrilled to find modern dish ware that is kid friendly.
Designed in the UK, each piece is made from bone china. Intimidated? Don’t be! The dishes are made to stand up to dishwashers, microwaves, and even your little ones’ hands. The line is hand-finished in Stoke-on-Tent, which is the home of pottery in the UK. Knowing that, the quality does not disappoint. I love that these dishes are safe to use & will stand up to continuous washing, and my kids adore the characters (and the fact they get to use “real” dishes!) Available in Elephant, Monkey, Crocodile, and Lion prints, each animal boasts a different color. Order a complete set, or mix and match these adorable dishes. Encourage your child’s developing mind during meal time; ask them about the color or animal they have & find out what they already know!
Colourful Dove dishes are currently only sold in the UK. To find a retailer that will ship internationally, browse their lovely list of stockists!
