YOUTH IS SERVED: NEW LINES OF CHILDREN'S FLATWARE BOW.

NEW YORK-No longer just a smaller version of regular-sized utensils, children's flatware has become fun, interactive and whimsical.

Alessi conferred with a cultural specialist in child development when it designed Aglo Ordini!, its first children's dinnerware and flatware set. The plastic flatware is footed and can stand at attention. It is available in clear, fuchsia or green.

A line of colorful, plastic-handled flatware from home, james! is shaped like people wearing hats. The line features a smiley face on the metal portion of the utensil and the "arms" of the people connect to one another.

The number-one seller for metal giftware company Metal Morphosis is its pewter baby spoons. The handles of the flatware are etched with such sayings as "open wide," "sweet pea," "butterfly kisses" and "cutie pie," and feature etched and embossed designs, as well as such whimsical items as an airplane, a baby shoe, a baby carriage or a choo-choo train on the very end.
