Play Food and Kitchen Accessories
As a follow up to my review on the much loved Melissa & Doug Kitchen Playcentre I recommend you stock it with some of the wonderful options Melissa & Doug has available!
There are numerous play food and kitchen accessories to choose from and all at very reasonable prices ($8 - $22 in most cases) but my favorite, and the ones the children tend to reach for first, have to be the following:
Cook something yummy with this 8-piece wooden cook's set includes a frying pan, stockpot and saucepan with lids, spoon, slotted spatula and an oven mitt. A standard set that every good kitchen should have!
This set sits at the top of my favorite list! I love the bright colours and the introduction of something new to the standard play kitchen foods! This elegant 24-piece wooden sushi set is packed in a beautiful storage box and includes sliceable sushi rolls, shrimp, tuna, easy-use chopsticks, a cleaver and more! Sushi rolls make fun chopping sounds when sliced!
This wooden fruit set comes with a wooden knife and seven pieces of sliceable fruit! The fruit can be cut into a total of seventeen pieces and makes a fun "CRUNCH" sound when sliced. Also check out the Cutting Food Box with eight peices of wooden food, a cutting board and a wooden knife that cuts into 31 pieces! With all these pieces, it's a great way to introduce the concepts of part, whole and fractions.
What child doesn't enjoy a good pizza party! Of course part of the fun is creating your own "personal pizza". This wooden set comes with six sliceable pieces served in a brightly colored tray, complete with a pizza cutter, spatula, and over 50 toppings that store neatly in a wooden box. Pizza makes slicing sounds when cut!
This Thirty-four piece wooden set includes six ready-to-cut slices of cake, removable candles and toppings, sturdy serving tray and a spatula that store neatly in a wooden box. Makes a great birthday gift!!
