Innovation That Matters

Personalized plates and placemats for kids


There’s nothing like a baby to inspire adults to seek new heights of design and personalization. Last week we covered RoomsByYou’s customizable fabrics for baby rooms, after which we were happy to spot Alphabet Plates, a line of plates and placemats that can be customized for young kids. With bright, bold designs and BPA-free construction, Alphabet Plates can be personalized to reflect kids’ favourite foods, sports, faces or monograms. Those approximating a child’s face, for example, allow customization of the 10-inch melamine plate’s colour as well as the child’s hair, eye colour, skin tone and accessories; two small text boxes can accommodate the child’s name and a phrase like “Big Sister.” Food-themed designs include pizza and tofu, while volleyball and bicycling are among the sports represented. Alphabet Plates are priced at USD 22. The Florida company’s personalizable USD 18 placemats, meanwhile, show where all the dishes and utensils go and are available in English, Spanish, French, Hebrew, Dutch and German. A portion of every sale is donated to the Osteogenesis Imperfecta Foundation. It seems safe to say consumers will never tire of customization, especially when it comes to their children. What we can’t wait to see is, who will make the first line of customizable—reusable or disposable—diapers…? Spotted by: swissmiss
