I spent a lot of my childhood on trains and the conductor would always give us cool cardboard trains to assemble. I never flew on an airline until I was an adult and was disappointed I didn’t get a set of pilot wings (which I hear they don’t give to children anymore). But now Air France has had the idea to make cutlery that can be assembled into toy planes. I can see a whole mess of problems with this. Child won’t eat because they want to play with cutlery plane. Child eats and then has food soiled toy plane. And the best one is that it’s all fun and games till someone loses an eye because of a flying fork.
This stuff looks pretty cool. I’m not sure how sturdy it is, there is always a problem with plastic utensils. But I’m convinced that it would be the ultimate cutlery for Dining in the Dark. My big concern would be to not break the handle and accidently season my food with biohazardous glowing goo. If anything, you’ll never have a problem finding your spoon under the table if you drop it.
A 7-year-old Filipino boy in Quebec was punished by his school lunch monitor for eating with a spoon and fork rather than fork and knife. He was made to eat alone. This style of using cutlery is used by people in Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand. Canada (where I live) is a multicultural society and this incident is embarrassing. Two great articles about the incident and living in a diverse world are below.

Happy Halloween! When I started to look for Halloween themed cutlery I was expecting to find skeleton forks or something, but this was an unexpected find. The perfect container for the orange and black plastic flatware at your child’s party. And if you are into that scene then it’s handy year round. Don’t forget that to some people everyday is Halloween. And more importantly remember that it’s still cool to eat your chocolate bar with a fork and knife.
