Kid proof bowls -- any leads?

We are down to two bowls so we need to get some more. Does anyone know of a safe plastic or maybe even silicone bowl out there? We've tried corelle and those broke before any of our other bowls, pfaltzgraff lasted the longest but it is pretty expensive and I can't justify the cost for something that will be broken at some point (not only by kids but buy my frequently clumsy DH).

I love suction cup bowls for my toddler. These ones are BPA free:

But check out this website for a whole bunch of bpa-free-feeding-gear:

Does anyone know if Tupperware is safe? What about wooden bowls (like the ones made from layers of wood not solid wood. We wouldn't be microwaving in them they are really just for snacks, soups, salad, cereal and pasta.

I consider Tupperware safe to use I've used Tupperware bowls for my Nephews. We also keep empty Cool Whip bowls,Move over Butter bowls, etc they may look tacky but my Nephews don't care. If they drop the bowl who cares nothing breaks just have to clean up the mess from whatever was in the bowl.

Re: Kid proof bowls -- any leads?

The Tupperware consultant at the BX said that their products are BPA free. Or, well, all the ones for children, at least. I know I asked about those, but don't remember if it is everything or just the kid stuff. We found some plastic plates at Wal-mart that are a 5. I don't remember if they had bowls or not, though. I am surprised at your Corelle, though. We've had our set through 3 kids and have only had to replace 3 bowls, and that wasn't all the kids, either. That's been on every kind of floor, too.
