Wean Green Glass Wean Cubes
I’m conflicted about the Wean Cubes I was sent by Wean Green. They’re super Eco-friendly (and cute!), which makes me want to luuuuuuuurrrrrrvvvvvvve them, but the day to day use makes me a little unsure about using them as often as I’d like. Let me break it down for you!
- Wean Cubes are made of glass, which makes my shiny puffy heart love them. I’m trying, trying, to not use too much plastic with Little Miss, but it’s not always easy and these are the first glass, small size, weaning/baby food containers I’ve discovered. Glass also means they’re BPA, PVC, Phthalates, and Plasticizer free.
- They’re bigger than other weaning cubes I’ve used, which is fantastic when your child moves from eating a few spoonfuls to a more substantial meal (although she’s just recently returned to her non-eating ways – UGH!) The size of these containers is fantastic and because of this I was able to find room for them in my freezer in all those funny little spaces between the bag of peas and the perogies.
- You can freeze them, microwave them and serve in them, which saves on clean up.
- The lids click in to lock and hold well, although I haven’t actually performed the “full of liquid and tossed in my purse when I wasn’t looking” test (I’ll get to that in a minute.)
- Wean Cubes are Canadian!
- The weight. Wean Cubes weigh A LOT more than both Baby Cubes and my small click & lock (albeit plastic) containers. I find them to be too heavy & bulky to throw in my purse (hello snack bags!) for short trips out, and if we were going out for longer I definitely wouldn’t pack these cubes due to their heavy weight. Because of this I’ve mainly used them around the house and they do work great, but I would have preferred them to be a bit more portable.
- As soon as I received the cubes I washed them and put them in the Tupperware drawer. I then went to do some laundry when I heard an insanely loud noise. Little Miss had got a hold of the cubes and was banging them together as hard as her little toddler arms would allow. I’ve read how durable the cubes are and we did get to test that with the “thrown-from-the-high-chair” test, but, although I should have probably known better, chances are that these will fall into little hands. Now I’ll be honest – they didn’t break when Little Miss was “playing” with them, but this isn’t something I’m willing to put to the test.
- Wean Cubes are sold in sets of four for $25 CDN. Four isn’t enough and almost $50 for the ideal eight cubes is out of my price range but if you can stretch that far they’re a great choice.
So there you go – I love them for at home use and if you want glass weaning cubes then these are definitely the way to go, but I found them a bit too heavy to be portable for everyday use.
