Little Grips Review and Giveaway

Mikey has decided he is a big boy and it is time for him to start using utensils. You know it’s funny with Kaia I had an eating utensil in her hand when she turned 6 months old but with Mikey I was to ready. I guess I still consider him my baby or maybe I thought it was easier but I have been letting him eat with his hands. I just realized though that he was missing out on some important developmental milestones and he has been trying to tell me. He was constantly taking his sister’s forks and spoon or ours if he could reach. They were a little difficult for him to use though. Little Grips were made for toddlers just like Mikey. And as far as he is concerned I am sure he thinks this cute little set of fork and spoon were made just for him. He uses them with the greatest of ease. I am not sure if it is the super easy gripable handle or the fact that the utensils are nice and short so it is almost like using his fingers to eat. But the Little Grips are the easiest eating utensils for Mikey to use.

About Little Grips

As the father of two children, I never paid that much attention to feeding skills until our daughter began to feed or try to feed herself. I became aware of the struggles she was facing with the fork and spoons available. No matter how hard she tried to maneuver the utensils she kept dropping the food and after no time at all she resorted to using her hands instead.

None of the existing utensils solved the problem, so out to my workbench I went and made my first prototype of Little Grips. I gave it to my daughter and without any prompting from me she immediately picked it up and began eating like a pro. We tried many different types of foods to see if the results would be the same, she could actually eat on her own without the mess and frustration.

We even tried to test her preference by putting a standard toddler fork on the highchair and she wanted nothing to do with it. Little Grips was the only fork she would use. We began to show our family and friends to see what they thought and the consensus was always unanimous, this is such a simple idea but yet so effective and helpful.

We began asking ourselves “are we the only parents who have faced this obstacle?” After a lot of prayer we decided we wanted to bring this product to the retail market; that is how Idea Blvd Inc. was created.

It doesn’t stop there, since then we have several other products in development that we look forward to introducing in the future. Not just baby products but inventions that will solve some of the most basic annoyances we face on a daily basis. Keep watching us and hopefully our products will add ease to your everyday life.
