Portmeirion has always held a special place in my heart. It’s an Italian village in North Wales where I visited as a child and again 5 years ago with my other half when we decided to climb nearby Snowdon a few months after meeting!
Portmeirion is also famous for the crockery it produces, which I love. It reminds me of my childhood home, where the Portmeirion dinner set comes out at special occasions like Christmas. If me and the other half ever get married, a Portmeirion dinner set would be on the wedding list, until then I have one of their vases to keep me happy!
So imagine my delight when I discovered they now make sets for children too! We were sent a Portmeirion Peppa pig set and Portmeirion The Very Hungry little caterpillar set for our boys…
First impressions were good – the sets are packaged in beautiful, strong keepsake boxes….
I love the way the dinner sets are packaged… Layered so you uncover the three items as you go through the box… Even the way they’re packed is high quality!
When you’ve unpacked them, in front of you sit two beautiful dinner sets, I can’t get across how cute, well-made and striking these are!
The characters and colours all look fantastic and ready to be eaten on!
I love them, toddler W loves them and I’m sure baby S will love them too. I think they make the perfect keepsake gifts for newborns/toddlers/children. The colours and images used totally appeal to children but their design and quality will appeal to grown-ups to, even if you haven’t come across Portmeirion before.
Now the only problem I have is… When will W be old enough to move from using his plastic Peppa pig crockery to these beautiful sets? And should they only kept for special occasions?! I look forward to finding out!
These sets are available directly from the Portmeirion website – the Portmeirion Peppa pig set is £22 and the Portmeirion The Very Hungry little caterpillar set is £27 – both great value for such high quality sets.
Disclosure: I was sent both sets in exchange for a review. All opinions are my own 🙂

I’ve seen these, they’re lovely. I especially like the butterfly! #TriedTested
the colours and designs are fab – hopefully they work to encourage little ones to eat more! #triedtested
Such lovely gift sets. I think they would make a great christening or birthday present.
These look absolutely gorgeous, they’d make a great christening present :o)
Oh these are lovely and would make perfect presents and gifts and a real keepsakes for little ones.
What lovely sets these are! I probably would never use them incase they got damaged! I do remember someone buying my daughter something similar when she was a baby. Winnie The Pooh and we never used that. I love the hungry caterpillar design!
Thanks so much for linking to #KCACOLS. Hope you come back again next Sunday.
I also love their China, they would make great gifts. I especially love the hungry caterpillar one! #KCACOLS
Our families live near Portmeirion and SB got one of these sets for her birthday in April (the Very Hungry Caterpillar one). It’s great; we haven’t kept it for special occasions so she gets a lot of use out of it and it is such high quality; the paint has lasted so many washes and it’s such a bright, vivid design. #KCACOLS
These are lovely, although I don’t think I’d ever trust my little girl to use them – maybe in a good few years! I especially like the Hungry Caterpillar set. #KCACOLS
This is really cute! I like the Peppa Pig set as my youngest daughter is fun No 1. I think she will love it! Thanks so much for sharing this at #KCACOLS. Just one thing. Please do not forget to comment the post before yours. Apologies if you have done it and perhaps your comment has not been approved but I can’t see it there yet. Thanks in advance lovely, 🙂 x
