Kid-Friendly Kitchen Tools
Fraternity boys might like AnimalHouse's Monkey Peeler and Punk-U-Pine Scrubber, but so will kids (from $8 for peeler; kitchenkapers.com).
Zak! Designs's bright and cheerful Happy Spoons are made of sturdy melamine ($5 each; laprimashops.com).
The soft plastic handle on Williams-Sonoma Kids's grater helps prevent slips; a protective cover reduces the risk of scrapes ($15; williams-sonoma.com).
