I love doddl, so much so that I also have their cutlery set, so when I was asked to review this plate, I did not hesitate. Their children accessories are second to none and the quality is amazing.
When I hear and see the words ‘Biodegradable’, ’BPA’ and ‘Phthalates’ free, these immediately get my attention as I love everything about them. They are even non-toxic, latex and rubber free too. Phthalates are a mixture of chemicals which are used to make plastics more sturdy. BPA (Bisphenol A) is a nasty chemical that can be found in many commercial products which can also include food containers and hygiene products. Knowing that these plates are non toxic, Phthalates and BPA free is so very reassuring. So, that is a great starter to introduction of this amazing children’s plate.
This a great plate for growing into as it is quite big. It has a very well equipped non-slip base, keeping it safe from slippages, which in turn helps to prevent food from tipping out of the plate and onto the floor.
A lovely bold splat design focuses the eye on to the centre of the plate and makes for fun play before serving food on it. It has 5 rounded points to the splat design which meant I could get my grandson to not just count them, but point to the splatter image then ask and teach him the colour of it. This is great for cognitive learning as well as mathematical and general interaction.
The plate has been ergonomically designed to help toddler move from a bowl type plate to a ‘grown up’ plate. It has a turn at the back of it which is great for keeping the food on the plate. The sides and front is slightly lower making it easily accessible for toddler/child to get to their food with either their fingers or cutlery.

Would I recommend the doddl Children’s Plate? Absolutely!
Not quite a 5. For such an environmentally sourced and produced item, I am concerned about the carbon footprint as it is made in and shipped from China to the U.K.
IMPORTANT NOTE: This does not reflect the workmanship and quality at all, unlike cheaper brands, doddl is very well made and very robust.
With most of us on social media now-a-days, I was really pleased to see how much doddl has taken to the social media side of things. I have provided the links to all their pages, apps and websites.
