Normally I wouldn't spend much money on stuff like this but these plates were too irresistible. Thanks to my friend Stacie, I am obsessed with these kitschy retro styled lions and tigers (from crib sheets to pajamas to now plates!). These melamine plates by Ingela P. Arrhenius are sooooo freaking cute and the thought of Saxon getting all excited to see animals he recognizes and loves while eating is too much! I got the lion and tiger of course and the sun because it was so sweet. The other animals are cute but don't quite hold the same personality that these ones do. They would make great gifts for anyone with kids - or really anyone who collects interesting and silly plates!
