Mealtime Amusement

Seeking interaction, parents turn to whimsical kitchenware to engage youths

Implications - In a society where youths are easily caught up and distracted with technology and online media, efforts to make experiences more engaging are becoming a priority for families seeking to create closer bonds. Flamboyant kitchenware that references cartoon characters, sci-fi movies or animals provide visual references that youths can relate to, combining adolescent imagery with the need to make ordinary circumstances more visually engaging.
