Who else remembers Zoo Pals, the plates that were made to “make eating fun?” The paper plates feature friendly animal faces and were portioned off into three sections: a large one for the main course and two smaller compartments for sides, snacks, and dips. Since everyone seems to be hopping on the bento box lunch trend, it makes sense that shoppers are going crazy for these portioned-off plates.

And I’m not exaggerating the hype. The Zoo Pals plates, made by Hefty, went out of stock shortly after they came back to Amazon on Aug. 17. But they’re back in stock.

If you want to keep the theme going throughout the tablescape, we also found these Zoo Pals-inspired coasters on Etsy. They’re a little pricier since they’re handmade, but they make for a great collector’s item that’ll last you forever.

A couple of retailers like Mercari and eBay have official Hefty Zoo Pals plates available, but they’re severely overpriced. That’s probably because these plates are likely from the original launch, preserved and kept for years in original packaging. We actually found a listing where the seller was asking for nearly $80 for a pack of 20. That’s $4 a plate.

The Zoo Pals plates came back after years of high demand.

“Over the last nine years, we have received many calls, social media, and even petition requests from fans to bring back Zoo Pals and the wait is finally over,” a company rep said in a press release.

We get the demand. Portioned-off sections appeal to kids who don’t like their foods to touch. Plus, the division makes it easier to offer a variety of foods to picky eaters. And we’re not going to lie. The comeback might just be as exciting for us nostalgic adults as it is for the kids!
