I've seen these plastic handle things and searched for phrases like the one in the question title but failed to find it. What are they called? And where can I get buy them from?

They're just called corn holders, or corn skewers. I've never seen them holding watermelon before. As a matter of fact, they don't seem to me to be appropriate for watermelon. I don't see how they would make watermelon easier to eat and they're quite sharp. Especially for a kid, that seems kind of dangerous.

Thank you for your answer. It seems dangerous to me too, now that I think more carefully about it! Good point. – Gigili Jul 27 '14 at 14:07
As far as where to buy them - local kitchen supply stores should carry them, and there appear to be dozens of options available on Amazon. Those in your photos look like the Zyliss brand. – logophobe Jul 27 '14 at 22:07
