Do your kids spend more time dropping food on the floor than into their mouths? Mom and entrepreneur Carys Bice felt the same way, which is why she and her husband Justin created tinytongs ($7.99) — an easy-to-use eating utensil for little ones.

Launched in 2008, this ingenious gadget is designed so that small or big kids can easily grip food and keep it in place. It’s also soft to touch and has a cool ergonomic shape that’s free of sharp edges.

Recommended for children one to five years old, it’s available in your choice of pink, purple, orange or green. Plus, it’s dishwasher safe, non toxic and lead/BPA/Phthalate free.

Check out the adorable pictures of kids using them. You can also submit your own photo here.
