I love Melissa & Doug toys and the website Gummy Lump that has a bunch of award winning toys and some fab deals. We got to try out the Melissa and Doug Cutting Food Box Play Food for our little guy and also the Melissa & Doug Bake & Decorate Cupcake Set Play Food.
Isaac is 3 and just learning how to use a plastic knife so I thought the cutting food was the perfect gift for him to learn how to cut things and which way to hold the knife. The “pieces of fruit” are wooden and big enough for little hands as well as being brightly colored. A good way to learn numbers, colors and how to cut all at the same time. Plus the play bread is a great way to teach him how to spread his own butter or peanut butter on. Yes, I love independence and I also LOVE wooden toys.
The cupcakes are just adorable! They’re not real but you get an oven glove (how cute is that!!) and icing (pens) and can decorate them and then put them in the cute little pan. The tops of the cupcakes are specially designed to wipe off so your little artist can keep painting again and again. Me thinks this would make a FAB birthday gift.
I don’t know about you but I’m smitten with Melissa & Doug stuff! In fact I just went to their site and realized that the pair of rain boots that Isaac always gets compliments on are M&D. Who knew??! As they were a thrift store find I didn’t!! Gummy Lump also has tons of clearance deals and sales including a princess box you can decorate for just under $6 and a pirate chest to decorate for the same price.
Go and check out Gummy Lump and check out the awesome clearance section and the 2 products above. They’re each under $16. You get FREE shipping on orders over $75.
