Robot and Monster tableware
Jackie Shapiro, French Bull, USA, www.frenchbull.com
Designer Jackie Shapiro had a fine pedigree in designing for children long before she came to set up her own brand. Working for Mattel, she helped create the Barbie and My Scene Style Guides, as well as designing products based on characters from Cartoon Network. Her combinations of brilliant characters and quirky geometric patterns give her line of melamine plates, bowls and cups retro appeal, which is attractive to both parents and children. The tableware is heat-resistant, dishwasher-safe, shatterproof and made of durable materials that promise not to fade, discolour or chip. Sure to cheer up any disgruntled child at the dinner table.
