fun blessings

dylan got a box of goodies today in the mail, courtesy of all children's furniture. just the thing to brighten a damp and cloudy day. they sent her the Melissa and Doug Play Food Cutting Fruit Crate (15.99) and their Play Food Kitchen Pots and Pans Set (21.99).


the toys are all wooden, with a nice, sturdy construction. the seven fruits are cute and colorful, and the pieces attach with velcro. the pot and pan set is beautiful. dylan is at a stage where one of her favorite things to do is to collect little things, taking them in and out of boxes, buckets, and baskets, so the fact that the fruit pieces can fit into the pots and pans delights her. dylan likes to stir them up with the spoon and carry the lidded pots from place to place.

she knows some of the fruits already and can identify the lemon, strawberry, and pear. i like that even in pretend play she can play with whole foods, instead of brand snacks or junk food.

at 18 months, dylan is still little for playing kitchen, and the toys are actually recommended for ages 3 and up, but the sets are already a huge hit. she has been entertaining herself with them for about an hour and her interest isn't waning. they're built to last, and i know she'll play with them for years to come.
all children's furniture stocks furniture, bedding, and mattresses along with a huge variety of toys, including really imaginative, unusual ones and a variety of eco-friendly items. the prices for the items we received were comparable to or even less than amazon.



the company sent me these items for review. the opinions are mine, and i was not otherwise compensated for writing this post.
