    A Child's Dinner Plate Becomes A Construction Site

    A bulldozer pusher, a fork lift fork, and a front loader spoon..What could these things be and what functionality could these things possibly provide? The answer to that question is quite simple. They are utensils for kids for eating and Play which are designed with function and Play value in mind.  Each of the utensils have textured, easy grip handles and detailing which enables little hands to hold on tight.

    One look at these three eating utensils with a Construction based theme and Even the youngest child will animate these construction machines with their true to life color, scale and shaping. This serves to enhance their critical skill development in a significant manner and tends to encourage exercise of their creative imagination skills.

    One of the best features to consider is how they can be so useful when going out to eat. Don't hesitate to use them for every meal; they are all rugged, light weight, and dishwasher safe.  The three utensils tend to allow you to extend your time to relax and enjoy an enjoyable eating experience. They can also be used as a medium to satisfy the active little minds of a child while you are driving to or from various destinations through creative pretend-Play.

    A key point which has been found consistent with kids and eating is that whatever the food may be on their plate, many kids will have a tendency to put their creative skills to work and create something with the food. Whether it be a creative new sculpture from their mashed potatoes or word puzzles from alphabet cereal, kids will do their best to make the toil of eating more enjoyable. Kids can now take advantage of adopting use of these 3 eating utensils to make the experience even more fun.




    The Constructive Eating Plate - A Magical Product

    The Constructive Eating - Set of Three Eating Utensils are the perfect product which alone or with the Constructive Eating - Plate, (an optional designed to work in tandem with the utensils), triggers the creative imagination of a child to envision a pretend-Play environment. In this case, the utensils influence the fantasy to be about a construction site...on their plate of food.  The body's response to the use of creative imagination with the three utensils carries over to a countless number of other developmental skills. In a sense you could say that it begins a chain reaction, the completion of each response of the brain and body becoming the catalyst to trigger yet another.

    The Transformation Of Food For Breakfast, Lunch, or Dinner

      The Constructive Eating - Set of Three Eating Utensils, are the construction equipment in a child's mind which can transform the food on their plate into an imaginary construction site, or whatever their creative little minds may fathom to create in pretend-Play...while eating.

    Kids can now put their creative skills into action, shooting for the most laughs from their artful creation they create with food with the use of the Constructive Eating - Set of Three Eating Utensils.

    The Constructive Eating - Set of Three Eating Utensils is so much more than just a unique new product for kids which will have a short lived measure of popularity. It is in fact quite to the contrary. With these eating utensils, food, and maybe even the Constructive Eating Plate, the eating experience for kids and other family members becomes more than just another meal. Kids can begin creating an abundance of smiles from other family members and friends with nothing more than their meal, utensils, and imagination skills.

    * With the "Construction Equipment Eating Utensils" the levels of skill development is increased significantly.





    Consumer Hands-On Evaluation With A Twist

    Nothing is more powerful than hands-on experience by a consumer with a product when it is under evaluation. Based upon that fact we put a number of products we currently are slated to evaluate at the mercy of consumers in a hands-on evaluation where anything goes. Shall we see how the "Constructive Eating - Set of Three Eating Utensils" was seen with consumers?

    The Constructive Eating - Set of Three Eating Utensils created a level of response we never would have expected for those participating in our spontaneous hands-on product evaluation at a public mall in California. (Due to all of the food that was given out by one of the restaurants there, we have been asked not to disclose the name of the mall or specific location.)

    An image of the Constructive Eating - Set of Three Eating Utensils with full lot of food

    The Constructive Eating - Set of Three Eating Utensils put an entirely new spin on our spontaneous hands-on evaluation. Never did we imagine actually having actual food for the participants to use in their evaluation.

    Special thanks are in order to the Panda Express restaurant for providing the meals for all of our participants.

    Considering the fact of the Constructive Eating - Set of Three Eating Utensils being designed to have its full value recognized with real food, that posed a problem with our trying to do an evaluation without issues of liability, etc. That problem was quickly resolved by the owner of the Panda Express in the mall. It turns out his wife and kids were participants in our evaluation so he donated meals for all of the participants as his way of saying thanks for their supporting our own efforts.

    We soon discovered that there was momentum of excitement rapidly developing within the group of participants as with each group of two participants evaluating the Constructive Eating - Set of Three Eating Utensils, everyone was busy with sharing their comments about the Constructive Eating - Set of Three Eating Utensils, many of them even disregarding the rest of the products we had available for evaluation!

    In the final evaluation sheets filled out by the parents, there was not a single negative comment from any of the parents...nothing but the very best of compliments and mention of how they felt the Constructive Eating - Set of Three Eating Utensils was such a great item to have there. No question about it, the Constructive Eating Plate was a hit with all participants and even those who were outside of our area watching. The Constructive Eating - Set of Three Eating Utensils passed this segment of our evaluation with flying colors!
