*Review - Despicable Me 3 meets Arthur Price


To coincide with the release of the latest Despicable Me movie, Arthur Price HQ has been invaded by the Minions to launch a special range of children's cutlery and crockery, and Mara and I were lucky enough to be selected to review some of the items available.

Despite the fact that it is aimed at children, I was so excited when I first saw the range and I'm 32!

At 17 months old, Mara is currently learning how to feed herself with cutlery and the little spoon is just the right size for her to hold comfortably and she manages to eat her meals with very little mess, which is handy as she doesn't really like to be too dirty.

The 'Expressions' four piece cutlery set retails at £24.95, comes in a great presentation box which is very appealing to kids, and are made of the highest quality (and shiniest) stainless steel emblazoned with the likes of Kevin, Stuart and Bob from the Minions series.

The bone china 'Sea of Minions' three piece breakfast set , also £24.95, has a china bowl, plate and mug. Each part can be purchased individually too starting from £8.95.

Mara loves the bowl! I think she's happy to have a noisy one like us grown ups rather than a plastic one for a change! This allows her to be a part of grown up meal time with proper crockery, but still has an element of fun.

All in all, a fantastic range of top quality items that are designed to last, and will no doubt see Mara through the next few years. My only hope is that she loves the Minions & Despicable Me as much as I do!

Arthur Price is a family owned business, set up in 1902, supplying their goods to Royalty, Heads of State and the finest hotels, restaurants, airlines and cruise ships across the globe.
