One of the best coastal designs on melamine plates I have found. I prefer when an animal or flower has the full design on the plate, like this turtle does. Some plates this season had a starfish with half the body missing, which I did not like. I rated 4 stars until I see if these plates can be washed on the bottom rack of my dishwasher with heat cycle on. I bought them for the grandkids and my husband wants to use them first!
