i know i don't have kids but my sister and her kids are showing me some pretty nifty things that i, as a child, did not have. i use to think that certain things were overboard, but the truth of it is, i think i'm just secretly jealous that i didn't have these things as a kid. even my mom thinks they are nifty.
This came about because the older child wanted to use chopsticks. we've tried all sorts of methods and gadgets from here to asia and none of them worked. but this one, it was great! he was picking up food like a pro! and as he learns, you can remove the trainer and use them as regular chopsticks. two thumbs up.
