What do the symbols mean on my new Tupperware and on the kid's dishes I just got at Kmart?

What do the new "plasticware care symbols" mean on the plastic dishes I have just bought? They are on new Tupperware and on kids' dishes from Kmart.

The Tupperware symbols that I have found listed are:

Arrows forming a triangle = recyclable.  A number in the middle specifies the type of plastic used.

A inverted wine glass with water drops = top rack dishwasher safe

A wine glass & a fork = food safe (plastic will not leech into food)

Wavy lines = microwavable (reheating only, less than 100% power)

Oven mitt = oven safe

Snowflake = freezer safe

I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.
