When it comes to choosing the best gift for my daughter I want to give her girl’s toys that are fun, as well as educational. Age two begins a wonderful time of imaginative play and this cookie set is the perfect gift! Pretend play can be more exciting than ever with wooden play sets from 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.
The Melissa & Doug Wooden Slice and Bake Cookie Set lets children pretend to bake, decorate, and serve cookies. My daughter is obsessed with cookies and cupcakes and this play set made a great gift. This colorful wooden set includes 12 slice-able cookies, 12 toppings and tools for safe, imaginative play.
Kids can use the accessories and attach each cookie to the cookie tray, and once “baked” they can decorate the cookies with the toppings. The set also includes a cookie sheet, cardboard tube, plastic knife to slice the cookies, spatula, and an oven mitt. 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.
My daughter has no trouble placing the Velcro cookies on the tray or placing the frosted toppings on the cookies. I love that they are Velcro, so they stay on the cookie sheet enabling her to pretend she is putting them in the oven without them falling on the floor. My only negative point about the set is that I would have liked it built smaller, so it would fit into my daughter’s pretend kitchen set.
Overall though, I am pleased with the set. It has certainly kept my daughter entertained and I have enjoyed playing with this set with our daughter.
