My 4 year old was going through a picky eating phase so we got this to encourage him to eat and it really helps. Vegetables are much more fun when they're arranged into a cool hairdo! Cucumber sunglasses, cabbage beard, spaghetti moustache.... The inventiveness is endless. Sometimes he just likes to cover the whole face with food then play peekaboo eating it clean. It's good quality too - solid ceramic plate without being too hefty. No chips or fading and it's been used every day for months. I'd highly recommend this.
