Where can I get a set of these from? Ds is now 4 and perfectly able to use a knife and fork, but adult ones are too long for him. Many kiddie ones i have seen are so blunt they are useless. ANy good ones out there?

I just got a set from John Lewis - actually they match our proper ones too!
But i have to say they do seem a little bit too small for ds1 (3.5). Though i agree the full size ones are a bit unmanageable at that stage.

I have a good set from ikea, all stainless steel so they look like our adult cutlery, the knife does cut but isn't overly sharp. dd loves them.

Thanks everyone. We actually already have the one in that link with the smiley faces on. I don't like them much. They are too short and also the knife is not sharpe enough. We have a set from Ikea which is very good, but I don't live anywhere an Ikea now to get another. I love the look of the one in GLTC. It is pricey, but may well be worth getting.

I have a sneaky suspicion they stopped making it (the children's version) Hausfrau.

My husband acquired some from * coughgranadaservicescough * and they are perfect size wise and for being proper, not blunt, knives.
