Sing for Your Supper, Kid
By David A. Greene / Published by Dwell

There are plenty of similar trays out there for children, emblazoned with the cartoon corporate pitchmen of media powerhouses like Viacom and PBS. But the Sing Sing tray has a few distinct advantages: It's adult-sized (useful if your kid is a big eater, or there are no clean dishes left when you have a hankering for leftovers); it's blissfully cartoon-character-free, and it's more dishwasher-safe than most of those thinner kiddie slop-trays. Plus, every time your kid eats off of it, it's a chance to bond, by sharing tales of how they're eating fish sticks off of the same tableware as Sing Sing denizens Miguel Piñero (of Nuyorican Poets Café fame), and William Tager (of "What's the frequency, Kenneth?" infamy).
