A sunny white melamine bowl featuring a Moomin illustration. Measures 13,5 x 13,5 cm.
It is a clear, serene day in Moominvalley. The sky is cloudless, and a light breeze makes the leaves sway gently. Moomintroll has come across a lovely meadow, the blooms of which are positively bewitching in their colourful splendour. Moomintroll is happily making a bouquet of small flowers while Snorkmaiden is sitting further away. She is wearing a necklace and a flower behind her ear, seemingly oblivious of Moomintroll’s intentions with the flowers. An illustration of a lovely moment, full of happiness and sunshine!
The melamine bowl is square, measuring 13,5 cm on each side. The corners are rounded and the bowl has high enough rims to make it very kid-friendly. The bowl combines beautifully with other items in the Moomin In the Meadow collection.
Melamine is widely used for dinnerware, among other areas, as the material repeats illustrations better, and is more durable than plastic but still more lightweight than porcelain – a great feature for kids’ dinnerware. Melamine is a tough material but delicate melamine objects crack if they are dropped on the floor at an unfortunate angle. Melamine cannot be put into the microwave or the oven as high temperatures damage melamine surfaces. Melamine mugs and plates are dishwasher-safe as long as the wash cycle temperature does not exceed the max temperature allowed for the product, 60 °C. However, as the dishwasher might fade the colours of the melamine object, handwash is recommended. Used properly, melamine products are safe and durable. Lightweight, affordable and practical both at home and during trips.
