Spuni is a baby spoon designed for infants transitioning from the bottle to solid food. Created by two friends from MIT, Spuni’s unique tulip shape triggers a baby’s instinct to suck and swallow, creating less mess for both baby and you.
When babies use their first spoon, more strained peas end up on their face or clothes than in their mouth. Spuni asked “why” and made an intuitive advance in weaning.
Specifically designed for a baby’s mouth, Spuni has a “tulip” shape with a soft, shallow eating area. A subtle lip at the back encourages babies to latch on—triggering their instinct to suck and swallow. And the soft spoon tip is gentle on their sensitive gums.
Makers Marcel Botha & Trevor Hardy realized that existing baby spoons are simply mini versions of adult utensils. That meant there was a lot of room for thoughtful improvement. Research showed that most food at the back of the spoon is pushed off or simply untouched. These two MIT friends consulted with material science and environmental health experts, creating Spuni with safe materials (phthalate-, BPA-, BPS-, and PVC-free) and an effective, ergonomic design (more comfortable with less mess).
Ideal for babies 4 months and older, Spuni is even enjoyed by toddlers and older kids because of its sleek, comfortable design. Grab a Spuni to help your baby make a big transition at mealtime.
