Zak! Designs Review and Giveaway



My little man is getting big enough now that he wants his own EVERYTHING, and it’s no different at dinner time mommy has her plate, fork and drinking glass and so does daddy although mommy and daddy’s are the exact same “Bug” wants his own so when I ran across Zak! Designs and seen all their products available for kids at meal time I knew this would be perfect for “Bug” small enough for him to get a good grip on but big enough so he could be a “big boy”!!

About Zak! Designes (Taken From Website):

Since 1976, Zak Designs has been committed to making mealtime fun for people around the world. Whether it's through dinnerware and on-the-go products that feature children's favorite characters or tableware and kitchen prep products that represent the latest global fashion statements, Zak gives people the mealtime products that fit their appetites.

While attending his cousin's wedding in Hawaii more than thirty years ago, Irv Zakheim noticed the tremendous demand for puka shell necklaces. With an eye for recognizing opportunities and a heart for taking advantage of them, Zakheim moved to Hawaii and began selling the necklaces on the beach. Eventually, he started importing the necklaces from the Philippines to feed the craze. That was the beginning of Zakheim's import business, and the seed for the company that blossomed into Zak Designs, Inc. today's global leader in licensed children's dinnerware and fashion forerunner of contemporary tableware.


Our Thoughts:



“Bug” was sent the Toy Story 6pc mealtime set to review. He was so excited the day it arrived so I made a point to wash it and get it ready for supper that night. The set came with a Placemat, 3-Section Tray, 13-ounce Sculpted Buzz Funtime Tumbler, 17-ounce 3D Fun Sip Tumbler with U-Shaped, Fork and Spoon with all of his favorite Toy Story characters on them!! Since the day we received them they have been used pretty much every mealtime and when he need a drink on the go. I love that this set is manufactured to Federal and State standards and is Child-Safe so I have no worries giving them to him.

I’m also very pleased at the quality of this set it has been through the dishwashing cycle in the dishwasher plus hand washed bunches of times and they still look brand spankin’ new! Cute, Child Safe, Durable and awesome designs Zak! has it all!!

Toy Story isn’t the only 6pc set available they also offer:

Cars

Princess

Fairies

Plus many more available at Amazon.com

I think these would make wonderful birthday gifts to a very lucky toddler or maybe a fun stocking stuffer during Christmas time! I highly recommend Zak! Designs to everyone for the kid mealtime dinner wear needs!

Zak! Design just launched an awesome new website: Mealtime Fun Zone that has a discussion forum, recipe exchange and other ways for parents to get involved! I’ve been over and checked out the Mealtime Fun Zone and I think that it’s pretty cool! My favorite part is the recipe exchange, I love trying new and fun recipes out with my family and after browsing a while I’ve found a couple I’m going to put on my grocery list for this week to try out next week. But besides recipes they have a really cool program called Get Involved that allows you to join a focus groups and surveys so that you can help design their future products! So you should really go check it out and see what cool fun things you can find!!!
