Yesterday I shared some of the amazing play kitchens that I have found while looking for a toy kitchen to either buy or DIY for our youngest daughter. I am so amazed at how toys have changed in the seven years between my two girls. My oldest had a few pieces of pretend plastic food and little boxes that looked like cereal boxes – for the most part that’s all I recall being out there. But now, WOW. So many options that even I want to sit down and play kitchen myself! I have such fond memories of playing pretend kitchen and restaurant with my oldest, and look forward to doing so with my “littles” as we call her.
I’m going to stick more to baking and sweets, partly because that’s what Love From The Oven focuses on but also because this post might become the longest post in history if I post all the cute foods! A disclaimer, yes, my kids’ play kitchens do include fruits, veggies and other healthy goodies, not just cupcakes, but since this is a baking blog, we’ll focus on the sweet treat toys!
Check out the incredible play food options that are available…
KidKraft Cupcake Set – this cute one is already under my Christmas tree.
Alex Toys Sweets Bar – I love it, the dessert table trend has gone from blogs and parties to kids toys!
I’ve found a lot of darling felt food patterns. This is great if you can sew, though not as great if you lack the sewing skills and machine like I do, but still wanted to share some cute options…
Do you have some fun food items that aren’t shown? I’d love to see them! Also, I’d love any ideas for DIY play food that doesn’t include (my non-existent) sewing skills!
