Ketto Porcelain Creation Breakfast Set - Cats
While the box states that the dishes are neither microwaveable nor dishwasher safe (implying food use), it is never clearly stated whether the dishes are food-safe, or not. When asked to clearify this point, the BoJeux rep responded that "It’s preferable to not eat with the dishes". So while some of our testers did use their dishes for real food, we recommend them as purely decorative - both because the durability isn't up to the usual wear and tear on dishes, as well as, to avoid ingesting paint (which does chip, as well as ceasing to adhere properly when heated).
For the most part our testers really enjoyed painting their projects and were satisfied with the results they could attain. The Cat design was less detailed and therefore a little easier to paint, than the Fairy theme (sold separately), so perhaps better suited to those with less fine motor control, or wishing more latitude in making their own designs. There was also some inconsistency in our testing parents' assessment of quality for both the brushes and the paints. It's hard to know at this point how much this variation was due to differing expectations, although we did note that not all the kits contained the brush pictured on the box.
