Tommee Tippee Tableware | Review

Items sent for the purpose of review. All thoughts and opinions are our own.

We love Tommee Tippee – you probably already know this from the amount of times we have covered the brand on this blog – see here.

We used them constantly with Jack and having been doing the same with Olivia and with Olivia now having been weaned for 9 months, we were looking into getting her some new tableware – larger than what she has had in the past – and some more cutlery. Up until recently Olivia hasn’t really shown an interest in feeding herself with cutlery but with this interest increasing, we needed some new stuff for her – and Tommee Tippee were up for the job.

We were sent some Easi-Scoop feeding bowls for 7m+, some pots and tray for 4m+, a Taster section plate for 12m+, some Supa-Soft weaning spoons for 4m+, some Heat Check feeding spoons for 4m+ and some Easi Grip feeding spoons for 7m+.

Now with Olivia being 15 months of age, we are using all of these. She has been weaned for many months now but much prefers to use her hands to eat her food – as they say, food for fun until they’re one – and has only recently taken an interest in using spoons and other cutlery to eat her food. Now I know from previous experience with Jack that these spoons – especially the heat check ones which we used constantly with Jack – will be used all the time for many, many months to come. However, we have been testing her out with the different spoons and she seems to prefer the Easi-Grip 7m+ ones although has been using the 4 months ones well.

We’ve been using the spoons and different dishes for plenty of different meals – the bowls are perfect at breakfast time but are also perfect for Olivia’s favourite dinner, chicken chow mein!

The freezer pots have been great for making little pasta sauces for the kids meal times when we are having something different and the plate has been great for different foods – Olivia can be very fussy with food sometimes and other days eat everything in sight with no problems at all. The Taster section plate has proved very handy for days when she is fussy so that she can pick and choose what she wants. I love our selection of tableware and will be using it for weeks and months to come – Olivia loves it too!

Tommee Tippee came up with some fabulous recipes to celebrate Spring and our recent Easter. We wanted to give some a try. Now we’ve moved past purees we couldn’t give those a go but I’ll be passing along those recipes to my friends with younger babies. Now we didn’t have quite the ingredients needed for the porridge bowl so we adapted instead – with chocolate porridge instead of original as Olivia doesn’t like original porridge, white chocolate buttons for the face and a quick inclusion of cereal for the ears as we realised we didn’t have any apples – whoops! It doesn’t look anything like Tommee Tippee’s but Olivia snaffled it all up, that was a happy breakfast day! Next up we will be giving the Good Friday Feast a try!

As you can see, our staging leaves a lot to be desired but hey, if Olivia eats it then I am happy! What Spring recipe would you try? What do you think of the Tommee Tippee range of tableware?

Win A Tommee Tippee Perfect Prep Day & Night Machine

Tommee Tippee, the UK’s leading baby feeding accessories brand, has refreshed its best-selling Perfect Prep machine. The Perfect Prep Day & Night prepares a formula feed bottle to the perfect temperature in just two minutes, with new features including volume control and a glow light setting for easier, happier night feeds.

Nicknamed Your Dream Machine, Perfect Prep Day & Night provides parents with the peace of mind that comes from knowing their baby’s bottle will be perfect every time, right around the clock. Real-life mums and dads helped create the next generation of the best-selling machine, with new design features a direct result of their feedback and suggestions.

Nicola Wallace, Marketing Manager at Tommee Tippee, commented:

“The Perfect Prep Day & Night is a huge and exciting launch for us. Like everything we do, each part of this new product development has been carefully considered with parents in mind – to make the journey into and throughout parenthood as comfortable as possible.

“Sleep, or lack thereof, can become a huge strain for new mums and dads, and the new product features work to combat this. Parents are at the heart of the Tommee Tippee brand, and we’ve got their backs once again with Perfect Prep Day & Night: it’s their Dream Machine!”

Tommee Tippee designed the original Perfect Prep based on the insight that mums find it difficult to prepare a bottle following formula guidelines, as these require the water to be boiled and cooled for up to half an hour before serving. This was difficult, time-consuming and certainly not practical at 3am. The concept was simple: to make this process easier, faster and more accurate, for happier parents and happier babies.

Perfect Prep Day & Night is available in four shades (White, Black, Grey and Red) and is available to pre-order now and on full sale 18th March.

You can view the campaign video below:

Product features include:

  • In just two minutes your bottle is fully prepared at the perfect volume and temperature
  • Silently prepares bottle while the home still sleeps with volume control to minimise night time noise
  • Our glow nightlight shines gently making night time feeds clear & simple
  • Clear, easy to use digital display makes bottle prepping as smooth as your baby’s bum

Trying Out The Tommee Tippee Steamer Blender for Hallowea’n

We were sent a Tommee Tippee Steamer Blender for the purpose of review. All thoughts and opinions are our own.

We started weaning Olivia a couple of months ago now and she has slowly been moving onto slightly lumpier food as she gets older. We were recently sent this Tommee Tippee steamer blender to make our weaning journey a little more fun. We were also sent some fantastic Hallowea’n (Halloween) recipe ideas to get your little one involved in the Halloween fun.

But first of all we wanted to trial it using some simple ingredients – an apple, a banana and a a pear – and we made something for all three stages to see how it fared.

The Tommee Tippee blender steams fruit, vegetables and meat preserving key nutrients and flavour. The blender itself is very simple to use – just a one touch button to either steam or blend depending on your requirements. There is also a timer so you can personalise your cooking. The instruction booklet comes with timings for which ingredients you are using so as you can see, we set the steaming timer to 10 minutes and the blend time to 4 seconds on this occasion. The bottom picture shows the fruit as it is getting steamed.

The one touch button is a great function as is the timer. It means you can really personalise the meals you are cooking. We thought we would start simple with some fruit and see how well it fared for each stage of weaning. The blender blends to a range of textures for every step of your babies development which is great. It blends as soon as a steam cycle is finished so you don’t need to worry about any decanting. There is also only a small amount of parts which makes it great for easy cleaning. So how did the blender fare?

You can clearly see the range in textures from stage 1 to stage 3 – Olivia is past the puree stage now but for the simple purpose of testing this machine to its full advantage, we thought we would create a meal from every stage. She is now stage 2 and will be moving slowly into stage 3 in the next few months as she starts to deal better with lumps! We are very, very impressed with what this Tommee Tippee blender has to offer,

But now onto the Hallowea’n recipes…what should we give Olivia to help her join in on the festivities? Here’s some recipe ideas for you below:

We are going to be giving the Pumpkin Smash a go for Olivia for her tea on Halloween and may just have to make some Silly Apple Bites for Jack to try too!

Will you be creating any of these Halloween recipes for your child this week? You can buy your own steamer blender here where it is currently retailing for £70 {affiliate link}. It is also available at Argos, Boots, George, Littlewoods, Toys R Us and Very.

Happy Hallowea’ning!

Tommee Tippee Sangenic Tec Advanced Nappy Disposal System | Review

Tommee Tippee Sangenic Tec

We were sent the Tommee Tippee Sangenic Tec for review. All thoughts and opinions are our own.

Everyone knows that babies produce an awful lot of dirty nappies. Now with Olivia weaning and teething, I seem to be changing more nappies than usual and even worse, they’re more horrible than usual too.

Luckily our local council provide us with big sacks for us to put dirty nappies in that they then collect but there is still the matter of where to put them once changed. You don’t want them hanging around, you don’t want to put them in the main rubbish bin as you have a dedicated collection but you also don’t want to be running out of the front door to drop a nappy bag in the big sack in the bin cupboard every time you change a nappy. So what do you do?

Tommee Tippee Sangenic Tec

We were asked if we would like to review a Tommee Tippee Sangenic Tec Advanced Nappy Disposal System and I jumped at the chance, thinking this would be the perfect way to store some dirty nappies and take them out to the bin cupboard in bulk.

Desribed as the only bin that twists and wraps to block odours, this system came with a softly scented citrus refill too. There is a plunger in the lid and an antibacterial multilayer film which 99% of germs that kill odours.

Tommee Tippee Sangenic Tec

We were sent a white bin and it was pretty simple to set up. You just need to pull the included film out of the refill, gather film together and push through, remove the lid, tie a knot in the film, use the hook to secure the knot and replace the lid.

We’ve been using the bin all the time over the past few weeks, what with the multiple nappy changes we have been doing. The system is fairly easy to use – you just open the lid, push nappy until gripped, twist the turntable 360 degrees clockwise until the nappy is sealed and that’s it. You then just need to plunge the lid into the twisted film and you will have fresh film ready for your next nappy.

Tommee Tippee Sangenic TecThe design of the system is quite plain but that is what I like about it – it fits into any colour scheme in any room. It is a decent size, fitting quite a few nappies before needing emptying but it isn’t imposing – its not too big, not too small. Odour wise, I haven’t noticed any of the smells from Olivia’s more pungent nappies making their way out of the bin so I’d definitely say it ticks all the boxes on the odour eating front.

Tommee Tippee Sangenic TecThis has definitely been a handy item for me to have in the house – saves me having to run to the bin cupboard every time I change Olivia and is easy to transport between upstairs and downstairs so I can use it whenever I like, wherever I like.

You can find out more about the disposal system here or you can buy your own on Amazon here for just £19.99 right now {affiliate link}.

Do you use a nappy disposal system at all? If not, how do you dispose of your nappies?

Weaning With Tommee Tippee | Magic Mat & Easy Scoop Bowls

These Tommee Tippee products were sent for the purpose of review. All thoughts and opinions are our own.

Olivia has now been weaning for a couple of months and is doing well. As I’ve mentioned before, we have been letting Olivia explore different things – finger foods, purees etc. She loves a pouch when out and about and loves her porridge in the morning.

Apart from a few small bowls and a few spoons, we didn’t have much in the way of weaning implements but were recently asked if we would like to review some items from fabulous baby brand Tommee Tippee so it made sense to ask if we could review some weaning items. We opted for some Easy Scoop Feeding Bowls and one of the Magic Mats.

Olivia currently alternates between her booster seat with tray or her highchair at mealtimes – in the mornings we just don’t have the time or energy to get the highchair out so her booster seat gets pulled out ready for porridge time. I was wondering if the Magic Mat would work with the booster seat but I needn’t have worried as the mat sticks to all flat surfaces!

Let me tell you about the items we received and what we thought about them.

The Easy Scoop Feeding bowls are stackable which makes them easy to store – always a bonus. They have a triangular base and an ergonomic handle for better grip. These work with the Magic Mat which is why we chose them. They are suitable for babies from 7 months and they are BPA free. They’re also dishwasher, microwave and steriliser safe.

So what did we think? The bowls are a great shape and are a decent size for growing babies. The bowls we currently have for Olivia are tiny and the shape is quite difficult plus it is super easy for Olivia to knock it over or put her hands in it and get the food absolutely everywhere. With this bowl I can keep a good grip if not using the Magic Mat and can make Olivia’s porridge with ease without worrying about the bowl overflowing with porridge – her other bowls are so small!

 

The Magic Mats work with all Tommee Tippee bowls and plates which is fantastic. They are designed to hold the bowls and plates in place using the suction device in the middle of the mat. This makes it so much easier and less messier to feed your baby – although mine has given it a real good go at still making a mess even with those! It is wipe clean, is suitable for babies from the age of 7 months, is BPA free and also dishwasher, microwave and steriliser safe.

As you can see from one of the above pictures, when a Tommee Tippee bowl or plate is attached to the mat, it is stuck there completely. The mat itself sticks to all flat surfaces as mentioned above but I do have to admit that Olivia has been able to peel it off on a couple of occasions when she is one of her more spirited moods – not so helpful when her bowl is full of food. However if your child isn’t determined to be a little monkey, this will stick there perfectly and won’t move unless you decide to remove it. The suction works well and it is super easy to clean which is just what you need from a weaning product.

Would I recommend? I’d say mostly yes. You’d have to be careful with the Magic Mat if you have a very spirited child – I’d have been okay with Jack as he didn’t really muck around at mealtimes but Olivia is a nightmare for it – but if your child isn’t so spirited, you won’t encounter any problems. The bowls are a great addition to our weaning products as they are the perfect size, shape and grip for both mother and baby plus they are easy to store – just what every mum wants!

Have you ever tried any of the Tommee Tippee weaning products?
