SPOKANE, Wash.-Zak Designs is unveiling two new mealtime collections based on new license partnerships with Uglydoll and Paul Frank.

Uglydoll characters, with their endearing self-proposed ugliness, will be featured on a plate, bowl, tumbler that are each sold in a two-pack as well as a flatware set. The Uglydoll line also includes a lunch tote made from at least 40 percent recycled materials and a snack bag made from at least 70 percent recycled materials. Both the snack bag and lunch tote, as well as the 15-ounce Snack & Sip canteen and 13.5-ounce Flip & Sip canteen, are designed to be easily cleaned and reused.

The Paul Frank line includes a 9-ounce tumbler as well as an 8.5-inch inch plate and 11.5-ounce, two-tone melamine bowl. The tableware line also includes a flatware set that features a spoon and

fork with EZ-Grip handles. Like the Uglydoll collection, there is also a lunch tote and snack bag made with recyclable materials, as well as the two sizes of canteens.
