I received the Toy Story Themed 3pc Dinner Set with Lunch Bag. Our Toy Story Gift Set included the following items:

Toy Story Star Shaped Plate - This action packed plate includes a blue background color with Buzz Lightyear blasting upwards. Woody, Slinky Dog, Rex and a Pizza Planet Alien are also featured. The star shape’s curved edges make this plate easy for little fingers to grasp. The Star Shaped Toy Story Plate is not suggested for children under 3. I agree with the age recommendations as my son is 2 years old and had a hard time keeping his food on the plate and off of the table or floor. However, he loves this plate, more than his other character meal sets, and asks for it every time he eats. If your child is under 3, the 3-Section Tray may be a better choice. I find myself washing this plate several times throughout the day and the design has not scratched or faded. We just make sure to limit this plate to dry snacks.

Toy Story Tumbler – This cup is perfect when you are transitioning you child from a sippy cups to regular cups. It holds up to 9oz of liquid and is easy for little hands to grasp. One side of the cup features Buzz Lightyear while the other includes Sheriff Woody. This cup is recommended for children 3+, although my 2 year old does great with it.

Toy Story Bowl - 5.5"/14cm. The Toy Story bowl includes a round shape, a white base color with a blue rim and a colorful image of Buzz and Woody in the center. This is also recommended for children 3 and up. My son is very active and moves around a lot. He tends to flip this bowl quite frequently so we avoid cereal, soups and sauces and use if for snacks such as apple slices, goldfish and grapes.

Toy Story Lunch Bag -  This lunch bag is insulated to help keep your child’s lunch cold and fresh. The front features Buzz and Woody in action, while the background includes silhouettes of other popular Toy Story characters. The zipper is oversized, perfect for little ones to open and close. The double-stitched seams and padded handles provide extra support and extreme durability. Since my son is too young for school, he has put his lunch bag to good use by filling it with his favorite small toys.

Dinner Set with Lunch Bag - Toy Story 3

My son is just two and has actually never seen Toy Story, but he was completely in awe of his new mealtime set and lunch box. This adorable set is BPA free, dishwasher safe and stain resistant. Not recommended for microwave use. Zak! Designs also has popular Disney characters including Cars, Disney Princess, Thomas & Friends, Hello Kitty, Dora the Explorer & many more!

  1. Have to love BPA free Melamine for kids. You don't really have to worry about chemicals getting into the kids and then you don't really have to worry so much about them breaking the set either.

  2. It would be very useful to be dishwasher safe, and those are such cute designs! They look very durable as well.
