Play Food: Dessert Toys to Make Your Mouth Water

Mouth watering. Delicious. Scrumptious. These are just a few words to describe the delectable new trend in play food! Play food has been around for decades but in recent years there has been a trend toward desserts and tasty treats! Play food toys have always been great fund for kids, but now with this explosion of cupcakes, pastries, cookies, ice cream, pies and cakes - play food has taken on a whole new fun factor!

Let's face it. Most parents limit the amount of sweets a child gets to eat. Probably because of that, and the fact that the real thing tastes so good, children are immediately attracted to play food toys that let them have their very own desserts. And not just any desserts, these play food desserts can be decadent!

Let's take the example of the play food cupcakes set by Melissa & Doug. This top selling play food toy contains 4 wooden toy cupcakes, 4 cupcake toppers that can be decorated with the include 3 dry erase "frosting" markers, 4 decorative play candles, 4 cupcake baking cups, a cupcake baking pan, and even an oven mitt. Not only is there great play value with "baking" and serving the cupcakes, but this play food toy takes on a creative flair with these cupcakes because you actually "frost" them with the special included markers that look like icing tubes! Incredibly fun!

In fact, as of right now Melissa & Doug have eight wooden play food sets that are just desserts: their famous birthday cake, their new tiered special occasion cake, their new brownies play food set, their new donuts play food set, their ever popular ice cream parlor set, their best selling slice and bake cookies play food set, their new apple pie, and the fore mentioned cupcakes set. Each one is a marvel. I don't know how customers choose!
Additionally, Melissa & Doug have 4 Sand Play Food Sets! Yes, you heard right. SAND PLAY FOOD SETS! Scoop up some moist sand in the ice cream scoop of the Speck Seahorse Ice Cream Sand Play Set (part of the Sunny Patch series) and pack it onto the included cones! There's also a sand cookie making set, cupcakes set and baking set! Outrageously innovative fun!

While shopping for Play Food why not get a great deal:

Automoblox Wooden Cars: A Love Affair

I have to give my husband credit. He discovered Automoblox many years ago and brought them to my attention. Thank you! 

Ever since then I've had a love affair with Automoblox wooden cars. It's everything from the style and feel to their versatility that I love. If you're never seen Automoblox or played with these wooden cars you are missing out on a great time!

Last year I wrote an article giving my Top 5 Reasons to Buy Automoblox Wooden Cars. This year, as the Holiday season approaches I wanted to make sure that you knew all about Automoblox.

The hands down best feature about Automoblox wooden cars is that their parts are interchangeable!  Automoblox cars are meant to be mixed and matched to make new car creations! Interchange the wheels, hood, and body and make something entirely new! You can even make stretch limos! Read the full article here. 

Wooden Toys: Why Buy Them?

Why buy wooden toys?
Many people have asked us this question over the years so we decided to tackle it. After thinking it over and getting input from fellow coworkers and parents we found that we all had about the same idea on this.

Our answers can be summed up in 6 categories:
  1. Durability
  2. Hand Crafted
  3. Nostalgia
  4. Play Value
  5. Wood is a Natural Product
  6. Being Green

Let's take these one by one. Read full article here.
