Pretend & Play Ice Cream Shop

Spring 2011 Toys
Ages: 3 - 5 yrs.
Manufacturer: Learning Resources
Price: $26.99

From the moment we opened this toy, it was a big hit with our testers, who found it very fun and entertaining. They love to play in their toy kitchen, with play food and utensils, and this toy became an instant favorite addition to their ever-growing collection. They loved wearing the apron, taking their turn as the "ice-cream maker", and creating and sharing desserts with the family.

This toy is valuable in helping children with the concepts of cooperation, sharing and serving others. There are many different parts which allow the children to work alone or together to create a number of tasty treats, but not so many that it is overwhelming or creates a gigantic mess. The toy is simple, visually appealing, durable, and most importantly very fun. It lets a child use his or her imagination to enjoy a pretend treat or run a pretend ice cream shop. We felt the packaging and pricing were both appropriate and we would definitely recommend this toy.
