Bamboo plates are increasingly popular among parents who are concerned about potential toxins in plastic alternatives.
Home Bargains is selling a number of designs, including a bear’s face, a rainbow emerging from behind clouds and a car.
A keen-eyed parent, Chelsea Louise, spotted the items and shared a photo with fellow members of the Extreme Couponing and Bargains Group UK on Facebook.
More than five thousand parents tagged friends and family, asking them to pick up the items on their behalf next time they visited Home Bargains.

Caroline Hills added: “So cute, and reasonably priced, too!”
