Fun Chopsticks

During my trip back to Penang, I was supposed to meet up with an online friend, Joanne. I bought the Edison chopsticks and Crocs shoes (for CE) from her online store and she was kind enough to deliver them to me (as my house isn't too far from her office).

I got a 10% discount for the Crocs and I think that's quite a good buy. Even when there's a storewide sale, the Crocs are not on sale (well, I've never seen them on sales). If you register as a member in the website, you can get a 10% discount (not sure about other items though).

Too bad she couldn't arrive on our agreed time. As she was running late, I went ahead with my plan to Botanical Garden (with my brother) and hubby waited for her.

When XY saw the chopsticks, she couldn't wait to use them. I only let her use them after we're back in KL. Although she can pick up food with the normal chopsticks, her grip isn't very correct and I was hoping this Edison chopsticks can correct it. And eventually, correct her pencil grip (the pencil rests on her 4th finger when she writes).

~ I'm a pro already ~

I only bought one pair coz they're out of stock then (new stocks has arrived now). Didi was also very excited to see the rabbit chopsticks. But he treats it more like a toy. I tried to fit his little fingers in the rings but they're too small to grip properly.

~ "How does this work?" ~

Lemonjude said...

Use the chopstick in the right way is something hard to learn to me. I still not holding it right. Think I should get it too when the time comes.

khongfamily said...

Yeahh..this training chopsticks is very good especially those with rings attached. I bought one from Combi last time without the rings, I found it difficult to use. I bought another sets, Edison chopsticks and Brae loves it...always ask for it when we go out and eat at Chinese or Japanese restaurant.

Dora said...

Yeah it looks funny but is it easy to use?...

MeRy said...

The Edison chopstick is so cute..is it easy to use for kids?? Think of getting 1 for Ryan too.

slavemom said...

Doreen & Debbie, I wonder if they hv those for adults. hehehe

Anggie, vy popular these days.

Fussy mum, with this, she can pick up food better. And hopefully, it'll correct her grip.

Rachel, I hope so.

Wen, I'm sure they'll be fascinated.

Judy, yeah, if u give to Terry now, he'll play with it more than eat properly, like my son.

Yvonne, I prefer this one where the thumb ring can be removed.

Dora, it's quite ez for kids 4 yo above, or when they hv enuff finger strength.

Yatie, I bot from my fren's e-store @ www.e-variety.anggugu.com. Ya lor, ur kids vy 'chinese' lah. :)

Mummy Gwen, he wants to play.

Siew Ting, it's ez to use, but am not sure how fast it takes to master the skill.

mc, ppl r so creative these days.

Mich, can't resist. hehehe

Jac, she's an agent/dealer. Last yr, we oso bot 2 pairs but XY doesn't really like to wear them. She got blisters at her feet (if walk ard a lot), becoz of the button at the strap.
Dunno leh, maybe too many ppl selling bento stuff liao.

Juana & Sharon, I've jes been introduced to them recently. :)

Irene, next time can get for lil missy.

June, hahaha... nvm, now u know.

MeRy, once the kid has strong finger ctrl, it's vy ez to use. Ryan is probably still too young for it. Maybe u can intro to him after 2.5 yo. This opinion is based on wat my 29 mo does with them - play. :D

bp said...

slavemom said...
