Germany’s Donkey Creative Lab brings us these creative vehicle and animal themed spoons that take the old imaginary airplane and give it real wings, wheels or whatnot. The spoons are crafted from painted beechwood and stainless steel. Parents should be aware the website advises these spoons are not suitable for children under 36 months (3 years) of age due to small parts that could be swallowed.

Captain Sully Silver Baby Spoon
Born with a silver spoon in your mouth? Never fear, it’s not too late! The Captain Sully Baby Spoon from Catbird in Brooklyn, NY is hand-made from Sterling Silver and can be easily engraved for gift-giving… though we’re assuming Gwyneth Paltrow’s adorable Apple already has at least one of the $250 uber-utensils.
SQUIRT Baby Food Dispensing Spoon
It’s a spoon, it’s a bottle, it’s… both? Yes indeed, the SQUIRT Baby Food Dispensing Spoon from BOON combines the best features of a spoon and a baby bottle: Just load up the enlarged handle receptacle, give it a squeeze and encourage baby to open wide. The BpA-free, Phthalate-free and PVC-free “spoon” also allows busy parents to feed their progeny one-handed though options for the other hand would be rather limited one imagines.
