Product Review-- Ikea's Kalas dishes

>> Tuesday, May 11, 2010

Did I mention a GIVEAWAY?

I know, please try to contain yourselves.

So, first the review.

Ikea is a fun and magical place that tends to be a bit overwhelming if you've ever set foot in one. But, if you have the time to really dig, Ikea has INCREDIBLE stuff and a lot of it is priced so astoundingly low that you'll hardly believe it.

Such is the case with the Kalas dishes collection. Now, these are "technically" for kids, but I must say that Derek and I have been known to eat lunch off the plates and ice cream out of the bowls.

Look how pretty!

From The Diet Coke Diet

The pros:
- Perfect portion sizes for kids (and adults)
-Fun colors
- Cutlery is not dangerous in the slightest and easy to hold
- Dishwasher safe
- Made of 100% BPA free plastic (and ALWAYS has been)
- Very durable
-Recyclable if you ever get tired of them

Cons:
The stupid cups don't come with lids.

Seriously, that is the ONLY thing I would improve upon these.

The Kalas dishes are a great alternative to paper plates and cups. They are small and so they don't take up the whole dishwasher, they are lightweight and durable so if a kid chucks them, they don't break. Like I mentioned, I eat off these more than my nice dishes.

I highly HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend them to anyone with small children, big children or just for anyone who wants a nice, easy cheap dish. 


FANTASTIC! 


Now, for the 


GIVEAWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That's right, folks, one lucky winner will be receiving an entire set of Kalas dishes. That includes plates, cups, bowls and cutlery.

THE WHOLE SHEBANG.

I am a fan on facebook, have a button on my blog too. I love those dishes! So nice! I just cleaned out my cupboards so I'd have room if I won---hint hint.

Amber C May 11, 2010 at 1:35 PM  

Oh, I also put a comment on Facebook and my blog. See how much of a sucker I am? Love you guys!

Amber C May 11, 2010 at 1:37 PM  

Seriously, how was I not already a follower of your Web site? Unacceptable. Needless to say, I am now! Still love you guys!

Amber C May 11, 2010 at 1:38 PM  

Oh, read the "rules" again and I'm supposed to leave a comment. So, here's my comment! Yeah, I know, I have left enough already I'm sure. You can quit laughing me now Morgs.

Camie Rae Coles May 11, 2010 at 1:40 PM  

And I have now become a fan on facebook!

Angie May 11, 2010 at 1:44 PM  

the only problem with these dishes is when certain children decide they can ONLY consume food on certain colors, then there's mayhem. But that's not really IKEA's fault now, is it? Try telling that to my four year old. But they are lovely. And the cutlery would be lovely for my 2 year old who's just coming of age in the color preference world (and we don't have the cutlery)

The Wifey May 11, 2010 at 1:58 PM  

Hey morgs, those dishes look awesome. So I put on a button, became a fan on FB, followed your blog and I'm leaving a comment. haha.

Please please! I need more freakin dishes. Ones that don't break.
