What are Chewtensils and why does my baby need them?

Bumkins Chewtensils are designed to introduce young babies to the concept of utensils and self-feeding. Made from 100% soft and durable food-safe silicone, they feature a rounded handle that is easy for babies to hold.

Chewtensils Features

Perfectly Sized for Little Hands

Intended for a baby, not a kid

How well could you eat a meal with a spoon if it was several times longer than the width of your hand? Standard baby spoons, while smaller than adult utensils, are still very long compared to a baby’s hand and arm. Chewtensils are sized to fit into a baby’s small hand. This smaller size is more comfortable for babies to grab and gives them more control, helping them develop fine-motor skills.

 

 

Round Handle for Learning

Learn which end is which

Babies are constantly learning about their surroundings. As they learn about self-feeding, how would they know which end of a utensil to hold? Chewtensils have rounded, textured handles that are easy to grasp and hold on tight. The added weight of the solid silicone handles also helps to steady babies’ hands as they learn to dip and scoop purees and soft foods.



Textured to Soothe

Because teething is a pain

Babies spend a good deal of time teething and seeking out things they can chew on. We know your little one will probably gnaw on our Chewtensils, so we made them from soft, food-grade silicone and added a bit of texture to help give them a bit of relief as they deal with the discomfort of teething*. Let them dip the Chewtensils into a cool puree and enjoy the relief!


*Chewtensils are not a teether and should only be used under direct adult supervision.

Silicone, Not Plastic

A softer, safer alternative

Let’s be clear: silicone is not plastic. Our food-safe silicone is lab-tested and free of BPA, BPS, PVC, phthalates, lead, and cadmium. It’s durable but still gentle on baby’s tender gums. Silicone is also soft with no sharp edges to poke or scratch babies as they develop their coordination.

Stain, Odor, & Bacteria Resistant

No fuss

As parents, we have enough to worry about; your child’s dishware shouldn’t be one of those things. Silicone’s properties are naturally resistant to bacteria, mold, and fungus. It is also resistant to stains and is dishwasher safe. Cleanup will be a breeze!

Platinum Curing Agents

Only the best

During creation, silicone can be cured with two types of agents. Lucky for you, we only use the best one—platinum. During the platinum curing process, no byproducts are created, and the silicone’s already fabulous qualities are amplified. Happy baby? Check. Happy parent? Check.

Spoon + Fork Features

Silicone & Stainless Steel

These two make a great pair

Silicone is pretty phenomenal, and when you pair it with stainless steel, you have a great set of utensils for your little one. Our silicone is food-safe and provides a soft, comfortable grip around the sturdy 18/8 stainless steel. Together, these utensils are ready for any meal you can throw at them.

Curved Fork Tines

Yes, we did that on purpose

No, your fork is not defective—we’ve purposely curved the tines on our fork. We know that kids are still mastering self-feeding and can get frustrated when it gets tough. Curved tines help create a deep head to scoop and keep food on the fork. The outer curve also helps pierce the food, which can be trickier than it looks when you’re first learning.

Designed To Match

Sometimes you just need that added incentive

Here at Bumkins, we love some color coordination. You’ll find that our utensils have the perfect mealtime companion, whether it’s a dish, bib, splat mat, or snack bag. Go ahead and find your favorite colors and stock up!
