We cook from scratch nearly every night on our house, so we are already setting that example for our children. We try to get them involved in helping us prepare meals as often as possible, but there are some tasks – like using the oven – that little ones can’t help with.
So I love toys that allow my children to explore that side of food preparation. I think it’s so important that we teach our children young to appreciate real food.
When Kaylee and Zoë saw that we received a Vtech 2-in-1 Shop & Cook Playset for review, they were both very excited. It’s designed for ages 2-5, but at age 5 it was a little too basic to hold Zoë’s attention. Kaylee, however, fell in love with it instantly.
She really loved that she could have it set up as a shopping cart and pretend to do her grocery shopping.
Then, a minute later, she could be preparing a meal for her and I to share on the stovetop or in the oven. It also features a sink and cutting board – everything your little one needs for realistic kitchen play.
There are also fun electronic prompts to help your children learn. When you first start up kitchen mode, it directs you to wash your vegetables, and then what to do next. Kaylee has so much fun following the prompts!
I love how the Vtech 2-in-1 Shop & Cook Playset encourages pretend play and exploration while teaching about food, colors, numbers, music, following directions and more. It’s a great tool for teaching your children to appreciate preparing real food!
