Take It From Me: Gift Guide: Constructive Eating (Review and Giveaway) CLOSED

Gift Guide: Constructive Eating (Review and Giveaway) CLOSED

(This Giveaway is now LIVE!)
"Like many kids, our son fell in love with construction equipment at a very young age. It was a stage that had no boundaries. Our son loved anything and everything construction. As a result, our family room became the home to road graders, dump trucks and tower cranes. His bedroom became filled with construction themed carpets, shirts and sheets. It wasn't long before our son asked us to put cheerios on the floor to act as rubble for his bulldozer.
This prompted us to ponder... What if breakfast, lunch and dinner could become "rubble"? What if forks, spoons and pushers were the "machines"? Constructive Eating is the realization of these possibilities."

I was so excited to feature Constructive Eating in our gift guide this year because their products are absolutely genius! Whether you have a picky eater or a great eater, your kids will have a blast at breakfast, lunch and dinner with these super fun products!
I received the Construction Line feeding products to review and was very impressed with each item. The Construction Plate with the Utensils are the highlight to the line. They go hand in hand because the plate has specific spots for each utensil. The Bull Dozer Pusher pushes the food onto the Front Loader Spoon which makes it easy to scoop the food into those hungry mouths! The Fork Lift Fork has it's own parking spot and the wall makes it easy for the food to get onto the fork.
The Construction Worksite Placemat has the Construction Utensils shaded on the mat, so it's easy to know what goes where when setting the table! It is very easy to clean when dinner is over and is just an overall fun placemat.
Lastly, we received the Fun Front Loader Plush. I am expecting a little boy in a few months and I know he is going to love this because my daughters have really enjoyed playing with this toy! My daughters love to make noises as they push the front loader across the floor. It is super soft and perfect for any age which makes this a great gift!
The Construction Plate and the Construction Utensils keep my daughter busy as I get her meals ready.
When I finally get the food on the table, she has a blast scooping up her food.

    149. Lift up your head and be of good cheer; for behold, the time is at hand, and on this night shall the sign be given, and on the morrow come I into the world, to show unto the world that I will fulfil all that which I have caused to be spoken by the mouth of my holy prophets.
      3 Nephi 1:13

    150. Giving, not getting, brings to full bloom the Christmas spirit. Enemies are forgiven, friends remembered, and God obeyed. The spirit of Christmas illuminates the picture window of the soul, and we look out upon the world’s busy life and become more interested in people than things. To catch the real meaning of the “spirit of Christmas,” we need only drop the last syllable, and it becomes the “Spirit of Christ.”

      -President Thomas S Monson

    151. What will you and I give for Christmas this year? Let us in our lives give to our Lord and Savior the gift of gratitude by living His teachings and following in His footsteps. It was said of Him that He “went about doing good.” As we do likewise, the Christmas spirit will be ours.

      President Thomas S Monson
