A melamine bowl with atmospheric colours and a Moomin theme. Diameter 16,5 cm.
Moominvalley is celebrating autumn harvest! Paper lanterns are put up to twinkle in the night, fruit and vegetables are being brought to the party, and there are plenty of fun activities to take part in. Snorkmaiden has chosen to take the slide, a group of dance lovers have gathered in the middle, Sniff has an announcement to make, and Moominpappa is writing an autumn poet in his mind. Mrs Fillyjonk has gathered her children; it is late and time for bed. An immersive picture of a very successful party!
The round melamine bowl measures 16,5 in diameter and holds up to 3,5 dl. The corners are rounded and the bowl has high enough rims to make it very kid-friendly. The Autumn Harvest print can be seen on the inside bottom of the bowl.
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.
