March 31st, 2011Gummy Lump Review and Giveaway
When talking about wooden toys, there’s one company that really stands out from the rest in terms of selection, and that is Melissa & Doug. Melissa & Doug have grown to become one of the most popular toy makers in the world having received several “best toy” awards over the years.
Gummy Lump Toys carries a number of Melissa & Doug’s high quality, unique wooden toys for children ages 0 to 6 years of age.
Gummy Lump gave me the opportunity to review several of the wooden play food sets from Melissa & Doug .
In the “Food Groups Play Food Set by Melissa & Doug” all of the wooden play food pieces are solid wood and packaged into a wooden fruit crate. I love the painted details on each piece. They really offer a great assortment of food item for pretend play. I love that it stores nicely in the wooden crate! This is also a great product for education play, as it teaches children about the major food groups.
The “Ice Cream Parlor Play Food Set by Melissa & Doug” includes four colorful ice cream scoops; two cones and two painted handled scoopers in a playful freezer case! Children can use the magnetic ice cream scoop to pick up a scoop of ice cream and place in on a cone. I could not get over the detail on this item right down to the waffle design of the cone. The cones are made of wood- and the ice-cream is made of plastic. The ice-cream has magnetic circles that help keeps them on top of the wood cone. It all looks so realistic. This item is great for summer play and also useful in developing motor skills.
includes a “sliceable” pizza, a pizza tray, 54 pizza “toppings,” a pizza cutter, and a server, all packaged in a sturdy wood container. This is a great toy to teach counting and imaginative play. There are quite a few pieces to the set and I would not recommend this for younger children as some of the pieces are rather small.
Mothers with young children who enjoy helping mommy in the kitchen will love this set. The Melissa & Doug Wooden Slice and Bake Cookie Set lets children ages three and up pretend to bake, decorate, and serve cookies. I really like that the set teaches young children the step by step process of baking cookies. The cardboard tube is big enough to contain both the cookies and the toppings making storing easy. Even little boys would have playing with this set.
Overall, I love the Melissa & Doug line of wooden play food toys! They are super high quality, well made and extremely affordable! The sturdy quality of all the wooden toys helps ensure that they will last through many years of play.
