I've been a big fan of French Bull for a couple of years now. They make very colorful and stylish melamine kitchenware. They have even taken their signature patterns and parlayed them into bedding too. I use their pieces for our kids plates and cups. I was so over the princess and Pooh plates. The cool thing about this line, is that everything mixes and matches. I can even mix these with my vintage melamine pieces. The only down side, is that these can't go in the mircowave, but they are dishwasher safe.
