I was looking for a toddler-sized fork with adult fork capabilities. This is a bit long for my 16mo - about equivalent to a standard salad fork. The larger handle does make it easier for him to grip compared to standard flatware, but I was surprised the fork tines are so curved - more curved than the spoon in the matching set. I might try to straighten them a bit to get closer to the curve of our adult flatware set, as my child has had some difficulty deciding whether to use the fork right side up or upside down as a result. If the fork tines were a bit more level, I'd give this a 5/5, even though it's still a bit long for a toddler.
