Dandelion {Earthy-Friendly Goods} Review

When Julie with Dandelion contacted me asking if I’d like to review some baby/toddler tableware I jumped at the chance. I’m raising my child like she was born in a barn; we usually just throw her food on her tray and let her eat with her hands and shovel food into her mouth like some kind of wild woman. So I said yes, of course. I would love some bowls to help make my child more civilized! When she told me that they were BPA free and made from corn I was even more intrigued. She sent me a set of two BPA-free corn feeding bowls to check out.

Some of the selling points about the bowls:

  • Made from a unique corn bioplastic (PLA) formula.
  • Naturally…BPA free, Phthalate free and PVC free
  • Corn is a renewable and sustainable resource.
  • Hand-wash only, not microwave or dishwasher safe

The bowls feature flared tab edges, making them easy to hold and a deep interior which helps with messes. Once I got the bowls, I was eager to try them out and the result was… Well, take a look for yourself!

The deep interior helped when Nellie decided she wanted to turn the bowl over to get a peek at the underside, as you can see in the first frame. She ate pretty well out of the bowl and there wasn’t a lot of mess to clean up afterward! Of course, once her oranges were gone she found another use for the bowls…

Even if your toddler doesn’t quite get the hang of a bowl yet, they make a very fine hat.

Julie asked if anything else on the website caught my eye and after browsing, I found this cute little stuffed duck. Nellie loves stuffed animals and she is slowly building up an army and she was definitely missing a duck! Some of the great things about the duck include:

  • Made with organic cotton fibers
  • Filled with soft corn fibers
  • Machine Washable (HALLELUJAH)
  • 8″ tall

He makes a little rattle noise when you shake him too, which Nellie digs. She likes anything noisy. I introduced Duck (he doesn’t really have a name yet) to Nellie and she took to him pretty well!

Now every time she sees him, she points and quacks!! The fox pictured there is her bedtime lovey, but she also rotates who sleeps in the crib with her and Duck has been getting his Nellie time lately. She’ll walk over to him, pick him up and hug him going “mm mm mm mm!”

You can buy the BPA-free Feeding Corn Bowls for $7.99, and the adorable Organic plush duck for $19.99. The bowls are a fantastic way to introduce your baby to tableware and the duck makes a perfect addition to your little one’s stuffed animal family, especially if they love them like mine does!

I received no monetary compensation for this post. I was given a set of 2 bowls and the plush duck from Dandelion to review. All opinions stated in this review are 100% honest, and 100% my own.



  1. Cute bowls! I have been looking for some new bowls for my son and those look perfect. Will have to try them!

  2. Wow, I did not even know they could make BOWLS out of CORN. That is amazing, and would make me feel much less guilty about all the plastic toddler dishes we use! I’ll def have to check these out!

  4. The horse, then, would only get confused because it does
    not understand what its trainer really wants.
    It’s risky to go all out in a confrontation ‘ wounds and broken bones make us prime targets for
    hunters. In Bowerstone Old Town, there are a lot of vendors selling stuff, you can find some toy horse in this place.
