My 2 1/2-year-old son JD loves when I transform a typical grilled cheese sandwich into an elephant -- and thanks to these innovative and cutesy cutouts, I'm not wasting time hand-slicing a trunk and legs that, let's face it, will likely end up looking like a blob oozing with yellow cheese. Yuck! This mom won her daughter's affection by making ham sandwiches.
Bonus: These fancy sandwich-cutters are actually taller than standard cookie-cutters, so they cut through both pieces of bread without flattening your sandwich. Shaped like a dolphin, butterfly, dog, and elephant, your tot will be turning down lunch trades left and right at the picnic table this summer.
(The details: Dishwasher-safe. Made of ABS, USFDA-approved food-grade virgin plastic, BPA-, lead-, and phthalate-free. The cutter and packaging are 100 percent recyclable.)
